FBI Whistleblower Provided Internal Letter Claims DOJ Used Counterterrorism Tools Against Parents

FBI

This week House Judiciary Committee Republicans revealed the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) “has created a system to track threats against school board officials and administrators” reports National Review.

The Republicans cite an internal FBI email provided to them by a whistleblower. The members accused Attorney General Merrick Garland of misleading lawmakers during his testimony before the committee when he was asked about the subject.

The email was signed by Counterterrorism Division assistant director Timothy Langan and former Criminal Division assistant director Calvin Shivers. In summary, the FBI used counterterrorism measures, as well as its division, to spy on American families and parents.

In a statement to the Wall Street Journal, the FBI denied it targeted parents:

“The FBI has never been in the business of investigating parents who speak out or policing speech at school board meetings, and we are not going to start now…The creation of a threat tag in no way changes the long-standing requirements for opening an investigation, nor does it represent a shift in how the FBI prioritizes threats.”

Republican Representative Jim Jordan of Ohio, the ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee, wrote a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland explaining that the email from the whistleblower “provides specific evidence” that federal law enforcement employed counterterrorism tools “against concerned parents.”

“At best, if we assume that you were ignorant of the FBI’s actions in response to your October 4 memorandum at the time of your testimony, this new evidence suggests that your testimony…was incomplete and requires additional explanation,” Jordan wrote in the letter.

“If however, you were aware of the FBI’s actions at the time of your testimony, this evidence showed that you willfully misled the Committee about the nature and extent of the Department’s use of counterterrorism tools to target concerned parents at school board meetings,” the letter continued.

Nicole Neily, the president and founder of nonprofit Parents Defending Education, said the whistleblower documents “prove” that the FBI used “counterterrorism tools to investigate concerned parents” who participated in school board meetings.

Chinese Spy Balloon: Tensions rise between the U.S. and China

A strange object was spotted Wednesday over Billings Montana. The Pentagon confirmed Thursday that the strange object was, in fact, a Chinese spy balloon. According to a report from KPAX, a western Montana news outlet, the balloon had been on the governments radar for days.

On Friday, the Chinese government released a statement saying that the balloon spotted in Billings is a “civilian airship” that’s sole purpose is used to collect research on weather and that it had just blown off course. The balloon was not shot down by orders of the Pentagon due to the risk of falling debris injuring people on the ground.

Sara Carter, who has spoken frequently on the Chinese government’s threat and expansion to the West, stated on Twitter that the United States has failed to stop China from purchasing land near military installations, vital agricultural land, as well as, allowing Chinese linked companies, such as Huawei, to install technology in cellular towers. Those cellular towers are located in Montana, along side more than 150 ICBM nuclear silos.

China said, “The Chinese side regrets the unintended entry of the airship into U.S. airspace due to force majeure.” Majeure meaning that it was out of there control. It blew off course due to limited “self-steering” capabilities according the Ministry. The ministry also stated that the balloon, “deviated far from its planned course.”

This incident is adding fuel to the fire of what is already a tense relationship between the worlds two largest economies. China already lays claim to approximately 80% of the South China Sea, and is seeking full control over Taiwan after assuming full control of Hong Kong. China’s belt and road initiative has invested copious amounts of money into building infrastructure in other countries and uses it as economic blackmail. China’s transportation of fentanyl into Mexico is yet again another example of how they are seeking to damage the US.

Is this just a weather ballon that blew off course? US officials at the White House seem to be unconvinced and will continue to monitor the balloon, as reported.

UPDATED: Statement from the Pentagon was jaw dropping when a reporter asked if the public has a right to know about Beijing’s balloon.

“The public certainly has the ability to look up in the sky and see where the balloon is,” a DOD official responded.
