(Tony Sifert, Headline USA) Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee, has sent a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray in response to a recent whistleblower disclosure in the Jan. 6 “pipe bomb” investigation, according to the Washington Examiner.

In the letter, Jordan said that a “senior FBI special agent” had come forward with information suggesting that the FBI has made no progress in its investigation of the two pipe bombs that were allegedly placed near the Democrat and Republican party headquarters on the eve of Jan. 6.
“We have received a whistleblower disclosure from a senior FBI special agent concerning the investigation into the pipe bombs placed near the headquarters of the Democratic National Committee and Republican National Committee on January 5, 2021,” Jordan wrote.
Furthermore, the whistleblower claimed that the FBI was still — as recently as February 2022 — desperately searching for answers even from within its own community of “confidential human sources” in an effort to determine the source of the bomb scare.
“According to the special agent, on February 7, 2022 . . . the FBI’s Washington Field Office asked FBI field offices to canvass all confidential human sources nationwide for information about the individual and the crime . . . because the suspect’s ‘motive and ideology remain unknown,'” Jordan’s letter continued.
In other words, even the FBI thinks the pipe bomb scare might have been — as Julie Kelly, among others, has suggested — “another FBI hoax.”
Jordan also chastised the FBI for its refusal to provide Congressional Republicans with information about its investigation.
“The FBI [has explained] that it was exclusively providing information to the partisan Democrat-led Select Committee investigating the events of January 6, 2021,” Jordan wrote.
“The FBI’s decision to provide information on a partisan basis is antithetical to the FBI’s purported impartiality and it further erodes public confidence in the FBI’s senior leadership,” he continued.
The FBI has conducted over 900 interviews and collected nearly 40,000 video files and 400 tips in its investigation — all without produces any viable leads, according to the Washington Examiner.
