GOP lawmakers are revealing that whistleblowers are accusing the Federal Bureau of Investigation of investigating parents are terrorists, according to a report by The Daily Wire.
The whistleblowers have revealed that despite the denials of Attorney General Merrick Garland, the FBI did probe parents who were critical of woke school board as domestic terrorists.
Two GOP Representatives are exposing the information, Jim Jordan of Ohio, and Mike Johnson of Louisiana.
The representatives have said that “brave whistleblowers” have exposed the multiple investigations opened around the country into our parents.
A memo last October from Garland instructed the FBI’s counterterrorism unit to track threats against school board members.
In response, under sworn testimony, Garland assured the Senate that it did not instruct the FBI to investigate local matters between school boards and parents.
The Wire reports that the whistleblowers have contradicted this:
“All [the memo] asks is for federal law enforcement to consult with, meet with, local law enforcement to assess the circumstances, strategize about what may or may not be necessary, provide federal assistance if it is necessary.”
According to Jordan and Johnson, the FBI labeled “dozens” of investigations with the threat tag “EDUOFFICIALS,” which the lawmakers say contradicts Garland’s congressional testimony denying parents were targeted under procedures reserved for counterterrorism.
One alleged probe was launched after the FBI got a tip that a mom had threatened her local school board. The tipster “alleged that the mom was a threat because she belonged to a ‘right wing mom’s group’ known as ‘Moms for Liberty,’” and owned a gun. An FBI agent interviewed the unidentified woman.
Damaging information points to witch hunt type investigations. One such investigation was caused by a tipster who had “no specific” information but said a man who opposed the local school mask mandate “fit the profile of an insurrectionist.”
The FBI also reportedly investigated Republicans in a state for inciting violence “by expressing public displeasure with school districts’ mask mandates.”
The bureau in all cases, determined no crimes were committed, however, the waste of resources infringing on parents free speech rights is alarming.
