Parents Defending Education’s Response to Whistleblower Disclosing Documents Showing FBI Using Counterterrorism Tools to Investigate Parents

Press Releases

These new whistleblower documents provided to the House Judiciary Committee prove that the FBI was, in fact, using counterterrorism tools to investigate concerned parents who have attended school board meetings – which directly contradicts Attorney General Merrick Garland’s sworn Congressional 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. 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.
