The FBI miscalculated when they targeted this Congressman

House Republicans’ investigations into the weaponization of government against Americans are starting to heat up.

The FBI never thought they’d face one revelation in a hearing, though.

But the FBI miscalculated when they reportedly targeted this one Congressman.

A recent House Intelligence Committee hearing got all kinds of interesting when one GOP Congressman outed himself as an FBI target.

The Colorado Republican took the agency to task for breaking federal law.

And what he had to say about the Biden regime’s creepy spy scheme has Christopher Wray twitching.

The federal government has claimed for years that its vast surveillance program collecting all kinds of data on Americans’ daily lives is purely for the sake of going after external national security threats.

The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act of 1978 (FISA) was sold as a way to protect Americans from having their private information mixed up in the government’s spy activities.

But having all that information at their fingertips seems far too tempting for some agents.

Unnamed Congressman in Declassified DNI report on FISA abuses names himself

Back in 2021 the Office of the Director of National Intelligence declassified a document revealing wrongdoing on the part of FBI agents.

Fox News reported on the blatant violation of federal law.

“The Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) declassified a 2021 report in December in which it detailed abuses of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act of 1978 (FISA),” Fox News relayed. “The report stated that the FBI under Section 702 of FISA inappropriately searched the data for an unnamed member of Congress and local political organizations to determine if they had ties to foreign intelligence.”

And it seems the FBI miscalculated by targeting the very person who would end up leading the committee in charge of providing oversight for section 702 of the FISA law.

Now the Biden administration and the FBI are pushing to renew the 1978 law that’s used to secure warrantless surveillance dragnets.

But they’re running into a big problem with the trust deficit in government agencies, after so many abuses of power, including routinely unconstitutionally ensnaring American citizens’ communications without a warrant.

During a recent hearing Representative Darin LaHood (R-CO) announced that he read through those documents repeatedly and came to one disturbing conclusion.

According to Rep. LaHood, the unnamed lawmaker illegally spied on by government bureaucrats was none other than himself.

“I want to make clear the FBI’s inappropriate querying of a duly elected member of Congress is egregious and a violation not only that degrades the trust in FISA, but is viewed as a threat to the separation of powers,” LaHood explained during the hearing. “I have had the opportunity to review the classified summary of this violation, and it is my opinion that the member of Congress that was wrongfully queried multiple times solely by his name was in fact me.”

The internal spying scandal highlights the incredible power government bureaucrats have individually and collectively through their spy state infrastructure.

Republicans back in power in Congress doesn’t necessarily mean these agencies will be held accountable for abuses of power, if history is any guide.

That will only happen if American citizens demand they pay for some of those misdeeds.
