FBI whistleblowers allege the agency pressured and incentivized agents to reclassify cases as “domestic violent extremism” because agents were not finding enough cases. “Another whistleblower—with experience in high profile domestic terrorism investigations—stated that a field office Counterterrorism Assistant Special Agent in Charge and the FBI’s Director of the Counterterrorism Division have forced agents to recategorize cases as DVE to hit performance metrics manufactured by the Bureau itself.”

Analyst Comment: This confirms what many of us had long suspected; the FBI has been on a witch hunt to uncover that large portions of the country are secret terrorists. When they couldn’t find evidence of domestic terror plots, they engineered their own plots like the Whitmer kidnapping case, or pressured agents to fudge the numbers. In fact it was revealed that this was ties to awards and promotions, so the agents who played along and made up fake results would become the next leaders in the FBI, while those with integrity would find themselves shut off from advancement.
