FBI Ordered to Release Files That Called Parents Terrorists

A federal judge ruled last week that the Federal Bureau of Investigation must provide documents related to a 2021 letter that called parents domestic terrorists.

The agency initially described those parents, who were protesting issues like critical race theory, as serious threats in response to the National School Boards Association’s plea for assistance.

The government watchdog group Protect the Public’s Trust filed a Freedom of Information Act request days later for all documents or correspondence by the Department of Justice on the task force.
