Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) has an idea for how to curb the FBI of its apparent leftist bias, which is becoming apparent to House Republicans as they investigate various wrongdoing that has occurred, namely, to relocate FBI headquarters from the current swamp in Washington, D.C. to Alabama.

Jordan wrote in a letter to the House Appropriations Committee:

The Committee remains concerned about the politicization of federal law enforcement power emanating from FBI Headquarters in Washington, D.C. The centralization of FBI operations in the National Capitol Region has led to duplication of activity best left to the respective field offices, contributed to reduced autonomy in local field offices, and allowed improper political influence to taint law enforcement investigations and activity.

Jordan said there were existing facilities in Huntsville that could house the bureau or that appropriations bills in 2024 could fund the building of a new facility outside D.C.

The FBI website reported that there is already an FBI presence in Huntsville with 1,000 employees working there.

Moving to Huntsville or any place outside D.C. and a few other major cities might help the bureau regain perspective and objectivity.

Or, most of its ranks could just refuse to relocate and quit, which would also solve the problem.
