Today, following its colossal victory disbanding the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) “Homeland Intelligence Experts Group,” America First Legal (AFL) is announcing that it has exclusively obtained the group’s internal meeting notes. In the coming days, AFL will make these documents public through multi-part releases titled the #DeepStateDiaries.

This group, stacked with Deep State partisans like James Clapper and John Brennan, was created in violation of the Federal Advisory Committee Act and disbanded thanks to a lawsuit filed by AFL on behalf of former Ambassador and Acting Director of National Intelligence Ric Grenell.

Newly obtained documents reveal the group’s naked partisanship, the disdain the Biden Administration’s allies have for Americans who disagree with their political views, and the left’s desire to control the way people think—by any means necessary.

Key findings from this series include, but are not limited to, explosive evidence of the Brennan and Clapper committee discussing:

  • Getting the government to get “mothers and teachers” to “report their neighbors” to the feds;
  • Using corporate America to obtain intelligence on Americans;
  • DHS using January 6 and the raid of Mar-a-Lago as a pretext to monitor conservative and Trump-supporting Americans;
  • A systematic, whole-of-government approach to monitor, silence, and intimidate conservative Americans;
  • And more inner workings of the Deep State.

EXCLUSIVE PREVIEW – The following snippet comes from a September meeting where the group discussed “reporting and prevention” of so-called domestic extremism. Despite the Constitutional protections on privacy and the First Amendment, in this document, a group member asks how the federal government can convince people to report on their neighbors: “How do we get [DHS] into local communities in a non-threatening way? How do people safely report a concern about their neighbors?”

The release of these documents will expose that under the guise of “preventing domestic terrorism,” the Biden Administration has stood up a whole-of-government effort—including the use of classified systems and covert techniques—to target conservatives, subvert the political process, and run influence campaigns in the United States.

Statement from Gene Hamilton, America First Legal Executive Director, Executive Vice President, and General Counsel: 

“We were proud to partner with Ambassador Grenell and stop the Biden Administration from using an illegally-formed, partisan intelligence board, filled with deep state actors like John Brennan and James Clapper. These alarming documents reveal the committee’s internal discussions and potential plans to weaponize DHS and surveil conservative Americans. Based on the contents of these documents alone, Congress should take further steps to stop any similar work at DHS and remedy any illegal actions,” said Gene Hamilton.

Statement from Former Ambassador and Acting Director of National Intelligence, Ric Grenell:

“Thanks to America First Legal, we were able to get the Biden team’s personal documents outlining their strategy to monitor and intimidate dissenting views. It is shocking to see such intolerance and paranoia in written form,” said Ric Grenell.
