Jim Jordan Demands Answers From FBI For Allegedly ‘Pressuring’ Agents To Bolster ‘Domestic Violent Extremism’ Cases

Estimated Reading Time: 2 minutes

FBI officials are “pressuring” bureau employees to reclassify cases to involve Domestic Violent Extremism (DVE) in order to satisfy “performance metrics” created by data-hungry superiors, a top Republican alleged in a letter Wednesday, demanding answers on the matter.

“We continue to hear from brave whistleblowers about disturbing conduct at the Federal Bureau of Investigation,” Republican Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan, ranking member on the House Judiciary Committee, wrote in the letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray. “From recent protected disclosures, we have learned that FBI officials are pressuring agents to reclassify cases as ‘domestic violent extremism’ even if the cases do not meet the criteria for such a classification.”


Jordan is demanding the FBI provide the number of DVE investigations from January 2020 to the present and the number of “Confidential Human Sources” that have contributed to DVE reports since that same time, among other documents. He has set an August 10 deadline for the bureau to respond.

DVE pertains to someone in the U.S. “without direction or inspiration from a foreign terrorist group or other foreign power who seeks to further political or social goals wholly or in part through unlawful acts of force or violence,” according to the FBI. Wray testified in June 2021 that the FBI has a “very, very active domestic terrorism investigation program” and that it has “doubled the number of domestic terrorism investigations,” according to the letter. (RELATED: Congressional Republicans Urge FBI And DHS To Designate Jane’s Revenge Attacks As Domestic Terrorism).

“Given the narrative pushed by the Biden Administration that domestic violent extremism is the ‘greatest threat’ facing our country the revelation that the FBI may be artificially padding domestic terrorism data is scandalous,” Jordan also said.


FBI employees are not finding enough DVE and are being pushed by superiors to use minor evidence to reclassify cases, according to a whistleblower who allegedly spoke to Jordan and other Republicans. The FBI’s Counterterrorism Division Director and another official “have pressured agents to move cases into the DVE category to hit self-created performance metrics,” said Jordan.

The metrics are used to dish out “awards and promotions,” said a whistleblower to Jordan and Republicans. The new allegations are relevant given how the FBI has become politicized, said the Republican, who wrote a letter to Wray in June outlining whistleblower claims that the FBI is “purging” conservative employees.

The FBI did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Are you fed up? Are you worried that America in rapidly sliding into a neo-Marxist state by the radical left in control of Washington with historically narrow majorities in the U.S. House and Senate and an Executive controlled by unnamed far leftists in place of a clinically incompetent President Biden? They are desperate to keep power and complete their radical progressive agenda that will change America and our liberty forever.

Americans just witnessed the passage of the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 without one Republican vote in the U.S. Senate and House (just as Obamacare was passed in 2010). The IRS  will be hiring 87,000 new agents, many armed, to terrorize American taxpayers.

Americans witnessed the FBI raid at the Trump Mar-A-Lago home and property of President Trump, truly a first in all of American history. We know what that is about. 

It is undeniable that the Democrat Party and the administrative state (the executive branches of the DOJ, FBI, IRS, et al) are clear and present dangers to our Republic and our liberty as they increasingly veer further away from the rule of law and the Constitution. What is the solution? At this critical juncture, there is only one action we can all take.

The only viable and timely solution at this critical point is to vote – yes, vote correctly and smartly to retake the U.S. House and Senate on November 8th and to prepare the way to retake the White House in two years. Vote and help everyone you know to vote. Please click the TAKE ACTION link below – we must vote correctly and in great numbers to be sure our votes are counted to diminish the potential for the left to rig and steal the midterms and the 2024 elections as they are clearly intending to do after their success in 2020.
