For an “Alphabet Agency” whose job it is to go after guilty criminals, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) sure sounded overly defensive in their response to Elon Musk’s Twitter information dumps that have been coming out over the last week or two.

During a Fox News alert on Wednesday, “America Reports” co-host Sandra Smith read the entire statement from the FBI concerning the information in the many dumps regarding their involvement in separate events.

Here’s the statement in full:

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. As evidenced in the correspondence, the FBI provides critical information to the private sector in an effort to allow them to protect themselves and their customers. The men and women of the FBI work every day to protect the American public.

It is unfortunate that conspiracy theorists and others are feeding the American public misinformation with the sole purpose of attempting to discredit the agency.

You know what makes people not trust in institutions like the FBI? When, instead of providing evidence that they were on the wrong side of history, they decided to sling the typical government defensive words of “conspiracy theorists” and “misinformation” when the news doesn’t go their way.

The FBI has some explaining to do, and this was NOT a good start.
