Sen. Hawley Accuses FBI of ‘Infiltrating’ Churches, Spying on Americans

On Tuesday, Senator Josh Hawley appeared on Fox News Channel’s “Hannity” and accused the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) of “infiltrating” churches and spying on Americans.

The Republican lawmaker then called for the three letter agency to be held accountable for those crimes.

“Senator, did the attorney general of the U.S. just lie to you in that exchange?” host Sean Hannity asked in reference to Attorney General Merrick Garland’s lies after testifying that the FBI was not sending agents into churches. “Do we now know that?”

“Sure looks like it, Sean — sure looks like it,” Hawley replied. “Listen, he knew at the time that he couldn’t answer the question because it looks so bad. He knew that it looked beyond the pale, and it is beyond the pale, Sean, for the FBI to be going into any church in America and trying to spy on Americans, and now we know that’s exactly what they were doing. They are infiltrating churches. They are trying to spy on us.”

“They regard churches apparently as the enemy and church-going Americans as akin to terrorists,” he added. “And, yeah, the attorney general sat right there and told me, no, we don’t do that, and now we know they do, in fact, target churches, and they have been. There’s got to be accountability for this, Sean. He’s got to be called on the carpet. The House needs to call him. The Senate should call him, too. But the Democrats will never do it.”

This is all in response to the documents revealed by House Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan, which show that the “FBI sought to develop sources in Catholic Churches to combat domestic terrorism.”

As Hannity pointed out, “Make no mistake: this is an assault on religion and Christianity.”
