The Federal Bureau of Investigation opened several investigations into parents protesting policies in their local school boards, labeling them with a threat tag the FBI’s Counterterrorism Division created, according to House Republicans.

Republicans of the House Judiciary Committee published their findings in a letter Republican House Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio sent Wednesday to Attorney General Merrick Garland. The findings were made with the help of information from whistleblowers.

The letter presented information suggesting that the FBI “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.”

According to the letter, the cases the FBI monitored and tagged with the new threat tag — EDUOFFICIALS — included those of “parents upset about mask mandates and state elected officials who publicly voiced opposition to vaccine mandate.”

Jordan pointed out that the findings made by the Republicans of the House Judiciary Committee ran contrary to Garland’s sworn testimony before the committee.

We have learned from brave whistleblowers that the FBI has opened investigations with the EDUOFFICIALS threat tag in almost every region of the country and relating to all types of educational settings,” the representative from Ohio wrote.
