The FBI has responded to the recent release of the Twitter Files calling it “misinformation” and labeling the reporters as “conspiracy theorists.”
“It is unfortunate that conspiracy theorists and others are feeding the public misinformation with the sole purpose of attempting to discredit the agency,” the FBI wrote on Thursday.
After the release of the Twitter Files, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has labeled Bari Weiss, Matt Taibbi, and Michael Shellenberger, the reporters who had been in charge of releasing the Twitter Files, to the public as “conspiracy theorists.” The agency claims that the information they are providing the public is “misinformation.”
“The correspondence between the FBI and Twitter show nothing more than examples of our traditional, longstanding and ongoing federal government and private sector engagements, which involve numerous companies over multiple sectors and industries,” the FBI went on to say in a statement.
Weiss responded to the claims on Twitter on Thursday by saying that she would welcome an open debate about the Twitter Files with the FBI.
Although the FBI has yet to respond to Weiss, the Bureau is receiving a lot of backlash about their statements regarding the Twitter Files.
