Oversight of the FBI: The January 6th Insurrection, Domestic Terrorism, Other Threats

 

Federal Bureau of Investigation - FBIWashington, D.C. – Good morning, Chairman Durbin, Ranking Member Grassley, and members of the committee. I am honored to be here, representing the men and women of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).

Our people—nearly 37,000 of them—are the heart of the Bureau. I am proud of their service and their commitment to our mission. Every day, they tackle their jobs with perseverance, professionalism, and integrity—sometimes at the greatest of costs.

Just last month, two of our agents made the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty. Special Agents Dan Alfin and Laura Schwartzenberger left home to carry out the mission they signed up for—to keep the American people safe.

Marsha Blackburn Report: People Over Politics

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – Senate Republicans have been working diligently for months to get another bipartisan relief package passed and signed into law. Millions of Tennesseans and small businesses still need help, and I will continue to fight for another round of targeted relief. My motto? People over politics! 

This week, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Moderators at Facebook and Twitter suppressed conservative voices during the 2020 elections and are now facing the consequences.

Marsha Blackburn Report: From Judge Amy Coney Barrett to Justice Amy Coney Barrett

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – This week, my Senate colleagues and I worked through the weekend to confirm Amy Coney Barrett. That effort came to fruition on Monday evening, when the Senate confirmed Judge Barrett to the nation’s highest court. In that moment, Barrett made history as the first mother of school-aged children to rise to the Supreme Court.

Shortly after, I headed to the White House, where Justice Clarence Thomas administered the Judicial Oath, and Judge Barrett became Justice Barrett. It was truly a monumental moment in American history.

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – At today’s Senate Commerce Committee hearing, Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) pushed Big Tech CEOs Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook, Jack Dorsey of Twitter and Sundar Pichai of Google to provide more transparency to their content moderation practices.

“There is a pattern of subjective manipulation of the information that is available to people from your platforms. What has driven additional attention to this is the fact that more of a family’s functional life is now being conducted online. Because of this, more people are realizing that you are picking winners and losers,” said Senator Blackburn at the hearing.

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – September 11th, 2001 was a tragic day for the United States. Please join me in remembering the innocent civilians, service members, first responders and their families who have suffered every day.

May God hold them near.

Marsha Blackburn Report: Votes for Women

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – Silicon Valley has turned into the wild west, and big tech companies are abusing Americans’ personal data; but if the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) is going to be the cop on the beat protecting privacy, it needs the tools to do so.
