On Friday, Chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH) subpoenaed the Biden Administration for withheld documents relating to the Administration’s targeting of parents for exercising their First Amendment rights at school board meetings. Since October 2021, Judiciary Committee Republicans have sent over one hundred letters to Biden Administration officials requesting answers about how the Administration used federal counterterrorism resources against American parents.

Whistleblowers have disclosed how, shortly after Attorney General Garland formally directed the FBI to take action, the FBI’s Counterterrorism and Criminal Divisions created a specific threat tag for school board-related threats and even opened investigations into parents simply for speaking out on behalf of their children. The Attorney General’s directive followed a letter from the National School Boards Association to President Biden, urging him to weaponize the Patriot Act against parents. Emails later showed how the Biden White House had advance knowledge of this letter and its contents and raised no objection.

Friday’s subpoenas require Attorney General Garland, FBI Director Wray, and Education Secretary Cardona to turn over all documents by March 1, 2023.
