Aug. 2, 2022] Project Veritas released a newly leaked document today provided by an FBI whistleblower, which shows how the Bureau classifies American citizens it deems to be potential “Militia Violent Extremists” [MVEs].
In the document, the FBI cites symbols, images, phrases, events, and individuals that agents should look out for when identifying alleged domestic terrorists.
The symbols the FBI claims are “red flags” are basic American patriotic symbols like the Betsy Ross flag.
Of note, under the “Symbols” section, is a prominent citation of the Second Amendment, where it explains that “MVEs justify their existence with the Second Amendment, due to the mention of a ‘well regulated Militia,’ as well as the right to bear arms.”
Right below that, under the “Commonly Referenced Historical Imagery and Quotes” section, Revolutionary War images such as the Gadsden Flag and the Betsy Ross Flag are listed. Each flag displayed in the document comes with a brief description of what it means.
Under the “Common Phrases and References” section of the leaked document, Ashli Babbitt is cited as a person that MVEs consider to be a Martyr.
The document tries to tie in incidents like Waco and Timothy McVeigh with traditional American symbols.
The document’s purpose was to assist agents in identifying individuals that may be “domestic terrorists.”
The documents were labeled “Unclassified/Law Enforcement Sensitive” for “FBI Internal Use Only.”
Project Veritas has been involved in an ongoing back-and-forth with the FBI.
The conservative group claims the FBI illegally targeted them after they were given possession of Ashley Biden’s diary. In September 2020, the group was given Biden’s diary after an unnamed source handed it over. Instead of publishing the document, the conservative group turned it over to law enforcement.
Then in November 2021, the FBI raided Veritas HQ, looking for further evidence claiming the group’s now 40-year-old Ashley Biden’s diary was stolen.
The case is so dubious that a federal judge has ruled that a special master is to be appointed to the case to determine if the DOJ can use much of the materials seized by the FBI during the raid.
