- House Republicans found that Attorney General Merrick Garland had “no legitimate basis” to direct the FBI to “use its authority” on parents who protested at school board meetings, according to a report.
- Local U.S. Attorney’s offices found that Garland’s directive was “very poorly received” and that local law enforcement did not “see any imminent threats to school boards or their members,” according to a Tuesday report by the Committee on the Judiciary, which is conducting oversight of the Biden administration’s use of law enforcement resources on local parents.
- The report comes as a response to the National School Boards Association letter sent to the Biden administration in 2021 comparing parents at school board meetings to “domestic terrorists,” causing Garland to issue his directive.
