Whistleblower Says FBI Agents Are Incentivized To Classify Cases as Domestic Extremism

If agents aren't finding enough domestic extremism cases, they are encouraged to reclassify others as such.

Earlier this week, we reported on the FBI whistleblowers who revealed that the bureau schemed to protect Hunter Biden. The same whistleblowers also alleged that the FBI misclassified domestic extremism cases to help the Biden administration.

The focus on domestic extremism: Both the Biden administration and the mainstream Democratic party push the narrative that right-wing domestic terrorism is one of the nation’s most significant problems. Within the administration’s first 100 days, Biden launched a national strategy to counter domestic terrorism aimed at white supremacy.

The FBI helped create that narrative. According to Rep. Jim Jordan, who has worked with the whistleblower documents, “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.”

"One whistleblower explained that because agents are not finding enough [Domestic Violent Extremism (DVE)] cases, they are encouraged and incentivized to reclassify cases as DVE cases even though there is minimal, circumstantial evidence to support the reclassification,” said Rep. Jordan.

There’s an incentive system in place to create the narrative. "[The FBI] pressured agents to move cases into the DVE category to hit self-created performance metrics… and uses these metrics to dispense awards and promotions.”

This week, we learned that the FBI allegedly protected Joe Biden’s campaign and is now manufacturing a pro-Biden narrative. Before that, we knew they targeted conservative parents, orchestrated the Gretchen Whitmer kidnapping case, and possibly played a role on January 6. Many see these as reasons for reform of the now-partisan institution.
