A House of Representatives committee has released a report Tuesday on the Biden Administration’s alleged misuse of federal law enforcement and counterterrorism resources against parents voicing concerns about controversial curricula and education-related policies at local school board meetings.
The Judiciary Committee’s Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government was formed to investigate the myriad ways government resources have been leveraged to target political dissidents and protect incumbent political power.
The committee is chaired by Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), who has been a fierce critic of the misuse of government resources for political ends. Last week, the committee interviewed Matt Taibbi and Michael Schellenberger, the “Twitter Files” journalists who have exposed an elaborate censorship scheme involving U.S. law enforcement agencies and even Maine Sen. Angus King.

This week the committee is looking at Attorney General Merrick Garland’s October 2021 decision to issue a memorandum directing the FBI and U.S. Attorney’s Offices to examine and address threats posed by parents at school board meetings.
At the time, Garland’s decision to effectively label parents exercising their constitutional rights “domestic terrorists” was broadly ridiculed in conservative media.
The Biden Administration declined to cooperate with the investigation during the 117th Congress. However, whistleblower disclosures and a National School Boards Association (NSBA) report suggest collusion between the administration and the NSBA to justify the use of federal resources against parents.

On February 3, 2023, Jordan subpoenaed the Justice Department, FBI, and Education Department for documents to advance the Committee’s oversight and inform potential legislative reforms.
According to the report issued Monday, initial documents indicate that the Biden Administration misused federal resources for political purposes, with no compelling nationwide law-enforcement justification for the Attorney General’s directive.
U.S. Attorney’s offices reported that there was no legitimate law-enforcement basis for using federal resources to investigate school board-related threats. Furthermore, most threats reported had little connection to school board matters.
Around the time Garland was using federal resources to investigate school board critics, Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin was rising in the polls on the strength of an education reform agenda. Youngkin had criticized the introduction of progressive politics into Virginia’s public schools, and his message was resonating with voters.
The documents suggest that the Administration’s actions were a political offensive to quell discord over controversial education curricula and unpopular school board decisions.

In response to the subpoena, the FBI acknowledged opening 25 “Guardian assessments” of school board threats, with six investigations run by the FBI’s Counterterrorism Division.
Two of those investigations were even referred to the “Weapons of Mass Destruction Directorate,” though the report did not include further information on those inquiries.
None of these investigations have resulted in federal arrests or charges and only one warranted opening a “full investigation,” highlighting the political motives behind the Attorney General’s actions.
The Committee argues that the weaponization of law enforcement powers against American parents exercising their First Amendment rights is dangerous. They have called on Attorney General Garland to rescind his memorandum, which he has refused to do.
