The Democrat chairwoman of the House Oversight and Reform Committee sent a letter to FBI Director Christoper Wray, in which she asked for an investigation into Parler‘s role in the Jan. 6 Capitol Hill protest.
Rep. Carolyn B. Maloney, D-N.Y., said users on Parler, a social media platform dedicated to free speech, made threats against politicians who promised to certify the fraudulent and unconstitutional Electoral College votes, according to a press release.
Maloney said the FBI should investigate Parler’s role “as a potential facilitator of planning and incitement related to the violence, as a repository of key evidence posted by users on its site, and as a potential conduit for foreign governments who may be financing civil unrest in the United States.”
She encouraged the federal government to escalate its one-sided political persecution of conservatives.
The Justice Department arrested a man who made threats on Parler and charged him with “knowingly and willfully transmitting threats in interstate commerce,” according to a press release.
The man, known on Parler as “ColonelTPerez,” said that Americans should “hunt these cowards down like the Traitors that each of them are,” specifically mentioning “RINOS, Dems, and Tech Execs.”
Meanwhile, America’s elites in academia, entertainment, media, and government can state their desire to murder former President Donald Trump and kill or reeducate his supporters.
After Amazon, Apple and Google engaged in a coordinated effort to suppress Parler, the free-speech site turned to Russian servers for its web-hosting needs.
This led Maloney to call for an investigation into Parler’s financial backing and “ties to Russia.”
She said the FBI should target the company’s founder, too.
“The company was founded by John Matze shortly after he traveled in Russia with his wife, who is Russian and whose family reportedly has ties to the Russian government,” she wrote in the letter.
