Amid a national crisis of confidence in the Federal Bureau of Investigation following years of revelations the agency has repeatedly abused its powers to rig elections for Democrats, newly public documents display yet another FBI abuse of power.
Documents obtained by Daily Caller reporter Gabe Kaminsky indicate the FBI has secretly pressured an unknown number of Americans to sign away their constitutional right to bear arms without being convicted of any crime in a regular court of law, another constitutional right.
The existence of a form that FBI employees have reportedly pressured Americans to sign after appearing at their doors was uncovered after a legal battle to get the FBI to answer an open records request from Gun Owners of America (GOA).
“The people targeted with these forms are … not otherwise ‘prohibited persons’ and have not committed any actual crime with which they can be charged,” Robert Olson, GOA’s counsel, told The Daily Caller News Foundation. The FBI claims it discontinued the use of the form in 2019, but the obtained records show the FBI used the form to deprive American citizens of their natural rights outside the constitutional mechanism of a proper trial in U.S. courts at least 15 times.
“The FBI declined to identify any statutory justification for the forms,” Kaminsky writes.
Several of those the FBI pressured into signing the form were investigated after being reported as making threats of violence on social media.
Many leftists consider disagreeing with their views to constitute violence. That is the rationale Big Tech companies that control what Americans can see online use to ban those who say men can’t become women, including Federalist Senior Editor John Daniel Davidson. In the United Kingdom, people have been visited by police for disagreeing with leftist gender ideology, and in Finland, a member of Parliament has been prosecuted in court for quoting the Bible on homosexuality.
The Biden administration has also defined many common political views of conservatives as domestic terrorist threats. Last week, President Joe Biden associated the 74 million Americans who voted for his opponent in 2020 with “domestic extremists,” or in other words a terrorist threat. A 2021 Department of Homeland Security memo gave as examples of “domestic violent extremism” views shared by tens of millions of Americans, including supporting only legal immigration, raising concerns about mass mail-in balloting, and objecting to Covid lockdowns.
Half of independent voters and 68 percent of Republican voters think the FBI and Department of Justice are corrupt, according to a poll out two weeks ago.
FBI whistleblowers recently told Congress the Biden administration is demanding they reclassify cases as “domestic extremism” to pad their numbers and inflate this threat. This is only one of a cascade of recent public disclosures demonstrating the federal law enforcement agency’s mass corruption.
