A recent letter from several members of the GOP to Attorney General Merrick Garland states: “You have given life to the idea that dissidents are synonymous with terrorists.”
“A letter signed by the 11 Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee demanded Attorney General Merrick Garland withdraw his October 4 memo ordering the FBI to investigate parents who speak at school board meetings,” reported Breitbart News.
“Are concerned parents domestic terrorists or not?” the letter says.
“It it is not the job of the federal government to silence those who question local school boards,” the Senators wrote.
“No arm of the government, including the offices under your command, may be used to chill criticism of local government officials,” the letter continues. “By involving the FBI’s Counterterrorism Division in this matter, that is exactly what you have done.”
“The letter was signed by ranking member Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA), and Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), John Cornyn (R-TX), Mike Lee (R-UT), Ted Cruz (R-TX), Ben Sasse (R-NE), Josh Hawley (R-MO), Tom Cotton (R-AR), John Kennedy (R-LA), Thom Tillis (R-NC), and Marsha Blackburn (R-TN),” reported Breitbart News.
