A House committee report issued on Monday reportedly claims that the FBI helped enable censorship requests from a Ukrainian intelligence agency that was probably corrupted by Russian operatives targeting American people.

The Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government and the House Judiciary Committee released a 26-page report accusing one of the nation’s major law enforcement organizations of breaching First Amendment rights and perhaps compromising national security.

After Russia invaded Ukraine, the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) used the FBI’s authority to carry out its objective of combating alleged Russian influence on social media.

According to documents in the Twitter Files, DOJ representatives often met with social media executives from Meta, Twitter, Google, Microsoft, and other companies to talk about the spread of “misinformation” and how the platforms should take action against allegedly false content.

The latest House committee investigation revealed that, at the SBU’s request, the FBI identified social media company accounts and postings, including those from real American accounts.

According to the House committee report, Russian actors who had allegedly infiltrated the Ukrainian agency might have been influencing choices made by the agency at the same time the FBI was working with the SBU to block Americans’ speech.

The head of the SBU was sacked by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in July of last year due to several instances of people under his command cooperating with Russian spies.

According to the investigation, an FBI agent emailed Meta in March 2022 with a list of accounts that the SBU wanted the social media company to ban, months before Zelensky began to crackdown on Russian spies inside his intelligence team.
