Congressman Matt Gaetz (R-FL) has introduced the “FBI Washington Field Office House Arrest Act” in response to the malfeasance of the FBI’s Washington Field Office. The legislation is co-sponsored by 5 additional members of Congress.
The legislation calls for the House to halt all spending allocated towards the FBI’s new headquarters outside of D.C.
In response to new information surfacing about malfeasance at the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s (FBI) Washington Field Office, U.S. Congressman Matt Gaetz (FL-01), member of the Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government, today will introduce the “FBI Washington Field Office House Arrest Act.” The legislation calls for the U.S. House of Representatives to halt all spending allocated towards the FBI’s new, suburban headquarters outside the District of Columbia. In December 2022’s Omnibus Bill and under former Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s direction, the House of Representatives voted to allocate $375 million for a new FBI headquarters in the Greater Washington, D.C., area.
The “FBI Washington Field Office House Arrest Act” will be co-sponsored by Rep. Andy Biggs (AZ-05), Rep. Dan Bishop (NC-08), Rep. Paul Gosar (AZ-09), Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (GA-14), and Rep. Harriet Hageman (WY-At Large).
“There are still good men and women in the FBI whose task and purpose are to defend our country, but the FBI’s weaponized Washington Field Office is rotten to the core.
Through our investigations in the Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government, we have uncovered extremely disturbing testimony from FBI whistleblowers that the Washington Field Office is targeting Americans who oppose their corrupt political agenda.
The cancer at the Washington Field Office has metastasized so large that the entire body is in critical condition. Gifting the FBI a new headquarters larger than the Pentagon would condone, reinforce, and enable their nefarious behavior to levels we have never seen before,” said Congressman Gaetz.

There are moment in time that change the world. Hitler’s invasion of the Soviet Union on 22 June 1941 was one of those. The Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor on 7 December 1941 was another as was 9 November 1989, when the wall in Berlin, Germany, erected by the Soviets, was torn down. And you have witnessed another one today, with Russia and China signing historic, unprecedented agreements.
In the intervening 334 years, China and Russia never established a de facto alliance. At times that were at odds and, during the last 50 years, U.S. policy made it a priority to keep a wedge between Moscow and Beijing. That is over. China and Russia are now allies, with China being the largest industrial power in the world and Russia the largest supplier of critical commodities. Their political union marks the end of Pax Americana and the U.S. domination of the international order.
Pay close attention to the joint-statement of Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping:
The Russian Federation positively assesses the position of China on Ukraine, and China positively assesses the readiness of the Russian Federation to launch negotiations;
Russia and China are concerned about the risks associated with the creation of AUKUS and their plans to build nuclear submarines;
Russia and China call on AUKUS to strictly fulfill its obligations to non-proliferation of weapons of mass destruction;
Russia and China are planning to strengthen a comprehensive partnership in the energy sector;
The Russian Federation and China believe that in order to resolve the Ukrainian crisis, it is necessary to prevent bloc confrontation and incitement of conflict;
The Russian Federation and China are concerned about the military-biological activities of the United States, they demand clarification on this matter;
Russia and China will expand scientific exchanges to ensure the technological leadership of the two countries;
The Russian Federation and China urge to avoid the degradation of the crisis in Ukraine and its transition “to an uncontrollable phase”;
Russia and China oppose all unilateral sanctions imposed bypassing the UN Security Council;
Russia and China are pushing for the US to speed up the elimination of its stockpile of chemical weapons;
Russia and China will strengthen cooperation in agriculture to ensure food security;
The Russian Federation and China plan to promote mutual and global energy security;
Russia and China insist that NATO strictly observe the defensive nature of their organization and respect foreign sovereignty;
Russia and China oppose the formation of “closed exclusive bloc structures, bloc policies and opposing camps” in the Asia-Pacific region;
The Russian Federation and China will increase the scale and optimize the structure of trade, including through the development of electronic commerce;
Russia and China are going to increase the level of financial cooperation and strengthen cooperation in the financial markets;
The United States must take real action to address the legitimate concerns of the DPRK and create conditions for dialogue;
The Russian Federation and China are concerned about the intensification of US activities in the field of missile weapons and call for an end to undermining international security;
Russia and China are against attempts to use space for armed confrontation and will oppose such activity;
Russia and China will expand mutual access to agricultural products and strengthen investment cooperation in this area;
The Russian Federation and the PRC are aimed at cooperation in the field of mutually beneficial supply of basic goods and mineral resources;
The Russian Federation and China oppose the militarization of IT, they are for multilateral, equal and transparent global governance of the Internet.
This is a game changer. The world we have known will no longer have the United States as the first among equals. In the same way that World War II marked the end of the British imperial empire, today’s events in Moscow are a death knell for the United States being able to act as the global policeman who imposes order on unruly countries.
The pitiful state of America’s power was on display as it tried in vain to sabotage the Putin/Xi summit:
An information campaign stating that Xi Jinping will not come
Threats against China if Xi Jinping comes
Requirements for China to condemn Russia
Requirements for China not to supply weapons to Russia Only the West has the right to supply weapons to Ukraine.
Statements that any Russian-Chinese agreements will not matter
Hasty organization of the Japanese Prime Minister’s visit to Ukraine on the day of Xi’s visit
The death of Chinese workers in the Central African Republic
Announcement of hasty deliveries of new weapons to Ukraine
Declassified intelligence documents aimed at blaming China for the origin of the coronavirus
We began to equip a new military base in the Philippines
The Biden Administration is flailing in its response to this new alliance. The loss of American influence in the world is not going to happen overnight, but the process has started. Remember this day. It will change the lives of your children and grandchildren. Let us pray that is for the good.
Trump complained about ABC reporting on the leak then ranted about Russia, and closed by saying that there was nothing to the case against him.
The American people have seen this statement before. The first thing that Donald Trump does when a story is true is call it fake, and then he doubles back to the original Trump/Russia scandal and closes by repeating that the story is fake while he attacks the outlet that reported it.
Donald Trump essentially confirmed the story by attacking the source of the information. If the story was not true, Trump could say that the story was false or say nothing at all.
The first page of Trump’s playbook is to attack the credibility of the report, but every time that he engages in this behavior he confirms the accuracy of the reporting.
