Joe Biden has been in office less than 10 months and already his regime is picking up on tactics he used with his predecessor, Barack Obama, in weaponizing elements of government against political opponents.
Despite the fact that Attorney General Merrick Garland told the Senate Judiciary Committee last month that he had not tasked the Justice Department with targeting parents who attend school board meetings to complain about left-wing curriculums, a whistleblower has provided evidence to the contrary to House Judiciary Republicans, and now they are demanding answers.
The Daily Caller reports:
A Department of Justice whistleblower claims the FBI ordered personnel to compile parent threat assessments, according to leaked documents obtained by the House Judiciary Committee.
The FBI created a “threat tag” titled “EDUOFFICIALS” to track instances of threats against school officials, according to a joint statement sent on behalf of the Assistant Directors of the Bureau’s Criminal Investigative Division and the Counterterrorism Division, which was released the day before Garland’s testimony and leaked by a Department of Justice (DOJ) whistleblower to the committee.
Just last month Garland lied when he told the Senate panel he could not “imagine any circumstance in which the Patriot Act would be used in the circumstances of parents complaining about their children, nor… a circumstance where they would be labeled as domestic terrorists,” Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) wrote in a letter to the attorney general seeking an explanation. Jordan noted that Garland also said he does “not think that parents getting angry at school boards for whatever reason constitutes domestic terrorism. It’s not even a close question.”
And yet, we have Garland ordering all 93 U.S. attorneys to begin tracking parental behaviors and comments at school board meetings, according to materials made available online by the House Judiciary Republicans.
