Attorney General Merrick Garland received a subpoena Friday from the House Judiciary Committee. The Committee has increased its efforts to gather information from the Justice Department (DOJ) on how concerned parents at school board meetings were handled.
The subpoena instructs Garland to provide numerous items that chairman Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) has repeatedly requested from the DOJ since the issue first surfaced surrounding school boards. In October 2021, while Jordan was a ranking member of the Committee, he contacted Garland about a directive he had issued to the FBI concerning a “disturbing spike in harassment, intimidation, and threats of violence” against school administrators.

Garland acknowledged during a committee hearing that he had sent the FBI directive following the National School Boards Association (NSBA) sending a letter to the White House. The NSBA later retracted their request to have the White House investigate parents, accusing them of being possible “domestic terrorists” for being upset over the issues taking place in schools.
Jordan accused the DOJ of using the NSBA’s letter as a “pretext for the use of federal law enforcement,” intimidating parents and violating the right of parents to speak out on behalf of their children. Jordan said this could “chill the First Amendment rights” of parents.
