Lying To Congress Is Only A Problem If You Are A Republican

Yesterday The Post Millennial posted an article yesterday that indicates Attorney General Merrick Garland lied to Congress when asked about using the Department of Justice Counterterrorism Division to investigate parents who were unhappy with the curriculum in their local schools.

The article reports:

In a letter addressed to US Attorney General Merrick Garland on Tuesday, Rep. Jim Jordan wrote that a whistleblower has revealed that the Federal Bureau of Investigation is using its Counterterrorism Division to investigate parents.

“Last month, during your testimony before the Judiciary Committee, you testified that the Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation were not using federal counterterrorism tools to target concerned parents at local school board meetings,” Jordan’s letter began.

…”We are now in receipt of a protected disclosure from a Department whistleblower showing that the FBI’s Counterterrorism Division is compiling and categorizing threat assessments related to parents, including a document directing FBI personnel to use a specific ‘threat tag’ to track potential investigations,” the letter continues, calling into question the “accuracy and completeness of your sworn testimony.”

Jordan’s letter goes on to outline that during Garland’s Oct. 21 testimony, he stated that the Department and its components were not using counterterrorism statues and resources to target concerned parents, specifically stating that he could not “imagine any circumstance in which the Patriot Act would be used in the circumstances of parents complaining about their children.”

The letter states that they have received an FBI email from the whistleblower dated Oct. 20, the day before Garland’s testimony, sent “on behalf of” the FBI’s Assistant Director for the Counterterrorism.

…That document, which references Garland’s Oct. 4 directive to the FBI, reveals that the FBI created the threat tag “EDUOFFICIALS” with the purpose of tracking “instances of related threats.”

“We ask that your offices apply the threat tag to investigations and assessments of threats specifically directed against school board administrators, board members, teachers, and staff,” the document reads. “The purpose of the threat tag is to help scope this threat on a national level and provide opportunity for comprehensive analysis of the threat picture for effective management with law enforcement parters at all levels.”

“This disclosure provides specific evidence that federal law enforcement operationalized counterterrorism tools at the behest of a left-wing special interest group against concerned parents,” Jordan wrote.

The Lies Are Getting More Bold

Yesterday The Conservative Treehouse posted an article with this headline, “FBI Director Chris Wray Tells Congress Antifa Not Involved in Capitol Hill Riots, After FBI Literally Arrests Antifa Leader, John Sullivan, for Participating in Capitol Hill Riots.” Wow.

If you were an uninformed consumer of news, you would probably believe FBI Director Wray. That is the idea.

The article reports:

Today, during his congressional testimony FBI Director Chris Wray was asked whether Antifa members participated in the January 6th Capitol Hill riot. Director Wray says the FBI “has seen no evidence” of Antifa participating. However, on January 14th the FBI literally arrested Antifa leader John Sullivan for his role in the planning, coordination and participation in the January 6th Capitol Hill riot.

John Sullivan is a left-wing agent provocateur within the larger Antifa movement. On the day of the Capitol Hill riots Sullivan embedded himself with the MAGA movement and recorded his activity.

January 14th, John Sullivan was indicted for his action.

Sullivan operated several social media accounts under the username “JaydenX.”

Sullivan traveled to Washington DC to participate in agitating the crowd toward violence.

On the day of the January 6th riot operation Sullivan admitted publicly, via social media, his intent to infiltrate the large crowd by posing as a supporter of President Trump.

The FBI interviewed Sullivan and subsequently issued a warrant for his arrest.

Please follow the link to the article. It includes some pictures and some supplemental information. The bottom line here is simple–the Congressional investigation of January 6th is working very hard to focus anywhere but the truth. I am sure you remember the old story about a man who was walking around in circles under a streetlight. When he was asked what he was doing, he explained he was looking for his keys that he dropped when he got out of his car. He was then asked why he was not looking in the area where he had dropped the  keys. He explained that the light was better under the streetlight. That’s what Congress is currently doing. I suspect the truth behind what happened on January 6th will show Congress in a very bad light, so that have to skew the investigation to make sure the truth does not come out.
