On Friday, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan has now reportedly subpoenaed FBI Director Christopher Wray, ordering him to give over papers and correspondence relating to the FBI’s alleged use of federal criminal and terrorist resources to target parents at school board meetings.
The subpoena orders Wray to produce all documents pertaining to meetings with U.S. attorneys’ offices in accordance with Attorney General Merrick Garland’s Oct. 4, 2021 memo, which directed the FBI to collaborate with local law enforcement and U.S. attorneys to identify and prosecute parental threats against faculty at school board meetings.
Since 2021, Jim Jordan and committee Republicans have been reviewing whistleblower information that the White House colluded with the National School Boards Association to fabricate a pretext for the use of federal law enforcement authorities against parents, and the investigation is now continuing.
According to whistleblowers, the FBI classified scores of investigations of parents with a danger tag developed by the bureau’s Counterterrorism Division to analyze and track investigations involving school boards.
In 2021, Attorney General Merrick Garland delivered a memo to the FBI, the Office of U.S. Attorneys, and the DOJ’s Criminal Division informing them that the agency will utilize its authorities and resources to discover threats against professors during school board meetings.
In his first month as committee chairman, Jordan has already formally begun a number of high-level inquiries.
