The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) reportedly used a “THREATSTOSCOTUS2022″ tag to focus on pro-life individuals. The tag was originally created to monitor threats against Supreme Court justices following the Dobbs decision. “When this threat tag came out, it was like, why are you focusing on pro-life people,” asked FBI Special Agent Garret O’Boyle. “It’s pro-choice people who are the ones protesting or otherwise threatening violence in front of Supreme Court justices’ houses.”
“O’Boyle said the division of one case into multiple separate cases gave the FBI the opportunity to go to Congress and say, ‘look at all the domestic terrorism we’ve investigated,'” according to the report. He claimed the the agency suspended him for making protected disclosures to Congress and said he was even prevented from gathering his personal belongings. O’Boyle told the panel the agency is “weaponized” against agents and anyone who tries to expose “malfeasance inside the agency prior to this.” ... The FBI also denied that it “manipulated statistics on domestic terrorism,” said that it will “never open an investigation based solely on First Amendment protected activity,” and denied retaliating against whistleblowers.
