Whistleblower claims department of justice has “Delared War on Parents”

A whistleblower revealed to the House Judiciary Committee that the FBI deployed “counter-terrorism tools” to target concerned parents participating in local school board meetings.

A letter from House Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) to Attorney General Merrick Garland states that “lawmakers have received documents from a whistleblower that state the FBI is using counter-terrorism tactics to investigate parents considered to be potential ‘domestic terrorists’ as they voice concerns about education in their local school districts,”

According to the whistleblower, “the Counter-terrorism and Criminal Divisions created a threat tag, EDUOFFICIALS, to track instances of related threats.”

Jordan’s letter continued, saying:
We are now in receipt of a protected disclosure from a department whistleblower showing that the FBI’s Counter-terrorism Division is compiling and categorizing threat assessments related to parents, including a document directing FBI personnel to use a specific “threat tag” to track potential investigations. This new information calls into question the accuracy and completeness of your sworn testimony.
Not only has America’s education bureaucracy declared war on parents concerned about local schools – but so has the Department of Justice, which has weaponized the FBI against parents to chill their speech,” Neily continued. “While it remains to be seen whether Attorney General Garland’s Congressional testimony was incomplete or dishonest, the credibility of a storied federal agency has been thrown into question.”

“The American people deserve a full accounting of exactly who was involved, and when – so that egregious overreach like this may be prevented in the future,” Neily concluded.
