(FreedomBeacon.com)- Ohio Representative Jim Jordan requested information from FBI Director Chris Wray on claims made by anonymous sources that the FBI is “padding its domestic violent extremist statistics” by encouraging agents to categorize more crimes as being tied to terrorism.
According to reports, in a letter to Wray on Wednesday, Jordan stated that the House Republicans had been informed that FBI officials are encouraging agents to categorize cases as ‘domestic violent extremism’ even if the cases do not satisfy the requirements for such a designation.
The Ohio Representative said the news that the FBI may be intentionally padding domestic terrorism data is outrageous given the narrative peddled by the Biden Administration that violent domestic extremism is the biggest threat confronting our country.
In light of what it claims to be an increase in domestic terror assaults, the Biden administration has singled out alleged white supremacists and anti-government militia organizations as the two most destructive parts of today’s domestic terrorist threat.
Reports show that Jordan stated they heard allegations that FBI agents are inflating the number of DVE cases to appease their supervisors. One whistleblower explained that agents are encouraged and motivated to reclassify cases as DVE cases even when there is little circumstantial evidence to support the reclassification since there aren’t enough DVE instances being found.
Jordan, the senior Republican on the House Judiciary Committee, requested the FBI produce information regarding incidents of domestic violent extremism and records identifying them as such from January 2020 to the present.
According to reports, Senator Chuck Grassley [R-Iowa] cautioned that the FBI’s reputation among Americans was damaged by claims of political bias in his speech on the Senate floor on Monday.
Grassley stated whistleblowers had informed his office that the FBI has a large number of sources who have supplied detailed information about Hunter Biden. The material relates to possible illegal activities, including money laundering.
Grassley said that in the 2020 Biden Reports, he and Senator Johnson expressed the same criminal concern. The underlying facts were allegedly confirmed and provable, according to the charges. However, the FBI stopped the investigation rather than approving it.”
The Senator noted that if the allegations about the FBI and DOJ are true, the departments have been significantly compromised. Attorney General Garland and Director Wray have a duty to the nation to look into these claims immediately and make necessary changes.
It is way past time to gut the DOJ and end the FBI.
