Garland Perjury? FBI Whistleblowers Say Parents Investigated With
Counterterrorism "Threat Tag"

An FBI whistleblower has revealed that 'dozens' of investigations into
parents voicing their opposition to topics ranging from Critical Race
Theory to mask mandates were investigated using a "threat tag" created
by the agency's counterterrorism division - directly contradicting
Attorney General Merrick Garland's 2021 testimony denying that the
Department of Justice had been weaponized.

According to a letter from Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) and Mike Johnson
(R-LA), "We now have evidence that contrary to your testimony, the
Federal Bureau of Investigation has labeled at least dozens of
investigations into parents with a threat tag created by the FBI's
Counterterrorism Division to assess and track investigations related
to school boards.

The letter cites an October 4th memo issued by Garland announcing a
concentrated effort to target any threats of violence, intimidation,
and harassment by parents toward school personnel.

"We have learned from brave whistleblowers that the FBI has opened
investigations with the EDUOFFICIALS threat tag in almost every region
of the country," adding "The information we have received shows how,
as a direct result of your directive, federal law enforcement is using
counterterrorism resources to investigate protected First Amendment

Three examples were provided, including at least one member of "Moms
for Liberty," a nonprofit dedicated to helping parents fight for
conservative values in the classroom.

"This whistleblower information is startling," the letter continues.
"You have subjected these moms and dads to the opening of an FBI
investigation about them, the establishment of an FBI case file that
includes their political views, and the application of a "threat tag"
to their names as a direct result of their fundamental constitutional
right to speak and advocate for their children."

"This information is evidence of how the Biden Administration is using
federal law enforcement, including counterterrorism resources, to
investigate concerned parents for protected First Amendment activity."

Reactions to the whistleblower revelations has been harsh:

    Welcome to Soviet America under Premier Biden. Empty shelves, a
disinformation governance board to censor criticism of the regime, and
the federal government targeting parents who protest the
indoctrination of their children.

    BREAKING: The Biden Administration has mobilized FBI
counterterrorism resources to investigate parents, including at least
one member of @Moms4Liberty, for expressing protected political speech
at local school board meetings.

    This is a grave abuse of power.

The letter is similar to a November, 2001 memo from Jordan to Garland

A 'protected disclosure':

In mid-November, House Judiciary Committee Republicans sent a letter
to Garland after an FBI whistleblower came forward with "a protected
disclosure" - claiming that "the FBI's Counterterrorism Division had
been 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 disclosure provides specific evidence that federal law
enforcement operationalized counterterrorism tools at the behest of a
left-wing special interest group against concerned parents," the
letter continues.
