Report: Corrupt FBI Pressures Agents to Pad Domestic Terrorism Data


Ranking member Rep. Jim Jordan wrote to FBI Director Christopher Wray about a report by whistleblowers accusing FBI officials of pressuring agents to reclassify cases as “domestic violent extremism” even in the cases that do not meet the criteria for such a classification. Given the narrative pushed by the Biden Administration that domestic violent extremism is the “greatest threat” facing our country, the revelation that the FBI may be artificially padding domestic terrorism data is scandalous.

In June 2021, Wray testified that the FBI has a very, very active domestic terrorism investigation program and that he doubled the amount of domestic terrorism investigations. Attorney General Merrick Garland has repeated that talking point,” the letter reads.

Multiple agents from different offices say numbers of Domestic Violent Extremists (DVEs) are padded to please supervisors.

Agents are encouraged and incentivized to reclassify cases as DVE cases even though there is minimal, circumstantial evidence to support the reclassification. Another whistleblower “stated that a field office Counterterrorism Assistant Special Agent in Charge and the FBI’s Director of the Counterterrorism Division have pressured agents to move cases into the DVE category to hit self-created performance metrics. According to whistleblowers, the FBI uses these metrics to dispense awards and promotions. Every whistleblower has called it an environment of “pressure” within the FBI.

Jordan said padding DVE data cheapens actual examples of violent extremism. This information also reinforces our concerns – about which we have written to you several times — regarding the FBI’s politicization under your leadership.

Multiple whistleblowers have disclosed how the Biden FBI is conducting a “purge” of FBI employees holding conservative views. You have ignored these concerns. It appears instead that the FBI is more focused on classifying investigations to meet a woke left-wing agenda.

Jordan then advised Wray that he wants numerous data on the DVE investigations by August 16th at 5 pm.

Do you think Wray will ignore it? If this information is corrupt, the FBI is corrupt, as Sen. Grassley said, to its very core.

Finding crime where none exists without Federal incitement or encouragement. Your government at work (pushing the narrative and justifying its existence).

Jordan has much more credibility than Grassley. That is because of Grassley’s obvious history of covering up DOJ abuses, which include participating in the effort to frame Trump.

But when the corrupt Sessions and Barr were the USA AGs, they also supported the narrative that white supremacy domestic terrorism is the major threat in the USA. They were Wray’s boss, and they appeared with Wray in press events to support the proclamations.

The ROT within our DOJ, our FBI IS KILLING America
We have not had a REAL AG for DECADES
Was FBI director Mueller removed seasoned station heads, 2001, replacing them with DS operatives.

We are currently witnessing a LAWLESS America – well, lawless for Democrats.
If anybody here watched Tucker tonight, he reminisced through ALL that DEMOCRATS did when Donald Trump was elected president. The RIOTS in DC followed by 535 riots around the country thereafter. ALL were Democrats’ Street Warriors.
Tucker reviewed what DEMOCRAT MEMBERS OF CONGRESS did. This is the Ukraine call ALL OVER AGAIN.
Impeachment #2 was LITERALLY Impeaching Donald Trump FOR WHAT BIDEN DID. They are now FALSELY accusing President Trump of CRIMES COMMITTED by Democrats in 2016.
But Dems took it MUCH MUCH FARTHER when they, not only spied on the Trump campaign but that spying continued CLEAR INTO THE OVAL OFFICE.
Friends, there’s a word for that – ITS CALLED TREASON.

Judy you cannot forget that those organized nationwide riots went on while the corrupt coward GOP member Barr did nothing. Mr. Magoo could have taken communication & financial records to arrest the leaders and save the nation. He did nothing. And, Mitch held no hearings, which was his Constitutional oversight responsibility. We were left defenseless by them. They were, by definition, participants in the riots.

Sessions and Barr had 4 years to straighten out the DOJ, but those veterans made it worse. They rolled out a red carpet for Garland.

On the illegal actions against Trump, GOP members were key parts of that. They were informed of the FISC warrants by law and did nothing. After Trump; became president, Sessions turned over the DOJ to the crooks, setting up a massive legal effort against Trump. And Mitch set up 2 investigations of Trump, none against the DOJ.

Once Trump became president, republicans were in full control of the situation, and they betrayed the nation. The DOJ is now set up to arrest Trump and have a show trial to rig the 2024 election, and it was enabled by Sessions & Barr.
