Garland Lied to Congress and I’m Supposed to Be Surprised by That?

Proof that AG Garland misled Congress about silencing parents who dissent (nypost.com)

He told lawmakers that Justice and the FBI are not using counterterror tools to target parents, as the National School Boards Association had requested in a letter crafted with the White House. Yet House Republicans this week released a whistleblower’s bombshell e-mail — sent on behalf of the FBI’s Counterterrorism and Criminal Investigations divisions the day before the AG testified — asking agents to “apply” a “threat tag” and “track” threats against school officials.

That order followed on Garland’s instructions for US attorneys to “convene meetings” with FBI agents and local leaders to address the supposed threats from parents — which don’t actually exist. Even if the AG didn’t know his underlings were following his orders when he testified, he should have corrected himself publicly once he learned.

Sounds like a lie to me. But this whole escapade has been disgusting and reprehensible. Garland should resign for ever even considering putting the weight of the DoJ against concerned parents wanting to ensure the safety and proper education of their children. This is wrong on so many levels that I don’t even know where to start.
