FBI Director Chris Wray last November assured the Senate Homeland Security Committee that the bureau wasn’t coordinating with social media companies to censor speech or users, but rather to address threats of “violence.”
The latest Twitter Files batch reveal Wray may have perjured himself.
Ranking member Sen Rand Paul (R-Ky.) had asked Wray whether the FBI colludes with Twitter to censor “political speech.”
“We investigate violence, not speech,” Wray replied.

Several batches of the Twitter Files reveal Wray’s comments were not true.
Internal Twitter communications released by journalist Matt Taibbi over the last month with the blessing of Twitter CEO Elon Musk, revealed numerous intelligence agencies, including the FBI, regularly pressured Twitter to censor and suppress accounts over political speech related to COVID, election integrity, Hunter Biden, and more.
Not only that, but the latest Twitter Files show the FBI volunteered to become the conduit between the intelligence community and Twitter related to censorship demands.
In fact, the Twitter Files suggest investigating violence was near the bottom of the FBI’s priorities.
Wray must be called to testify before Congress once again to explain why his previous remarks contradict the disturbing findings of the FBI’s end-run around the Constitution found in the Twitter Files.
