Objectivity 4.7 | Credibility 4.8 | Relevance 4.8

U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland and FBI Director Christopher Wray are facing subpoenas issued by the House Judiciary Committee for equating parents at school board meetings who were protesting school COVID-19 policies with domestic terrorists in an October 2021 memo written by Garland. The subpoenas signed by Committee Chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH) are seeking information concerning alleged “misuse of federal criminal and counterterrorism resources.”  According to whistleblower testimony, the FBI created the threat tag “EDUOFFICIALS” and an associated task force to investigate parents who were “upset about mask mandates and state elected officials who publicly voiced opposition to vaccine mandates.”
