New Evidence Shows Biden’s FBI Spied on Traditionalist U.S. Catholics from Coast to Coast – Crickets from the USCCB

The Federal Bureau of Investigation was in February accused of secretly gathering evidence which might link Catholics in the Richmond area of Virginia to “the far right nationalist movement”.

At least one agent was sent out to spy on Catholics who were worshipping at churches and chapels in the area, a U.S. government committee was told.

New revelations by the U.S. House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday have revealed, however, that the espionage against Catholics was far broader, also encompassing the activities of agents in the West Coast states Oregon and California at the very least.

There were “multiple” field offices of the FBI coordinating an investigation into traditionalist Catholics, according to the committee.

In a press release, the Judiciary Committee said that “information recently produced to the committee” demonstrated that the FBI “relied on information from around the country … to develop its assessment” that some Catholics could become terrorists.

The committee said that new information originated from FBI officials based in Portland and in Los Angeles.

Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, who chairs the House Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government, said that the latest evidence debunks the claim by FBI director Christopher Wray that the first leaked memo represented “a single product by a single field office”.
