Reps. Jim Jordan and Mike Johnson co-signed a letter to AG Merrick Garland informing him that whistleblowers had confirmed the FBI was actually investigating concerned parents as “domestic terrorists” using a so-called “threat tag” created by the FBI’s Counterterrorism Division.
This is exactly what AG Merrick Garland testified (under oath before Congress!) was not happening at the FBI. Garland told the House Judiciary Committee last year that even suggesting that the FBI would bother will angry parents at school board meetings was absurd. He said: “I do not believe that parents who testify, speak, argue with, complain about school boards and schools should be classified as domestic terrorists or any kind of criminals…I do not think that parents getting angry at school boards, for whatever reason, constitute domestic terrorism. It’s not even a close question.”
Remember my rule of thumb for the Biden regime: when they tell you something is not happening then it’s happening.
Did you know that the FBI’s National Threat Operations Center had set up a “snitch line” for Democrats to report angry parents who complain about Critical Race Theory or mask mandates or vaccine mandates at school board meetings?
Here’s another item: the FBI opened up an investigation into “Republican state elected officials” because a “Democrat party official” claimed that the Republican officials were “inciting violence” by complaining publicly about vaccine mandates at school districts.
In other words, Democrats want to criminalize the normal political process in America.
If you need more proof that the FBI is now the law enforcement wing of the Democrat Party — this is exhibit A.
This is going to be a major issue in the next few electoral cycles. Republican politicians are going to have to call for the defunding of the FBI — a situation entirely of the FBI’s own making since it spent the last few years undermining the Trump Administration, lying on FISA surveillance warrant applications, ignoring violent leftwing rioters in the summer of 2020, creating the fake Governor Whitmer kidnapping plot, hiding the Hunter Biden laptop from the public, and rigging the January 6th protest at the Capitol.
You can have a constitutional republic or you can have a rogue federal law enforcement agency — but you can’t have both.
