Judicial Watch received heavily redacted FBI files indicating that the agency’s investigation of Catholics was not limited to one field office and may have been approved by top FBI lawyers.

A leaked FBI document revealed suspicion of “radical-traditionalist Catholics,” and coordination across multiple FBI field offices.

The FBI memo targeted traditional Catholics as potential domestic terrorists, leading to concerns about unconstitutional targeting of faithful Catholics. (Trending: Supreme Court Delivers Historic Ruling on AR-15s)

“These documents disprove the FBI’s narrative that the spy operation against Catholics and churches was limited to one field office. In fact, the operation seems to have been approved by top lawyers in the FBI,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said.

“These documents should trigger a criminal inquiry into this Biden FBI scandal,” he added.

A document released by the House stated that “Ultimately, there may be limits to the level of engagement between RTCs and other far-right white nationalists.”

“For example, many RTCs consider other forms of Christianity to be heretical and an over-emphasis on white US nationalism may be off-putting to RTCs of different ethnicities and countries of origin.”

“Conversely, deep-seated anti-Catholicism remains a characteristic of many far-right white nationalists,” it read.

Former congressman Tim Huelskamp expressed worry over the program’s widespread nature, senior official support, and potential ongoing activities, while criticizing the Biden administration’s response to attacks on Catholic churches.

“Since last February, we have worked to expose this unconstitutional targeting of faithful Catholics by the FBI and the results are stunning, unprecedented, and should concern all Americas.,” Huelskamp said.

“Contrary to statements under oath by Director Wray and Attorney General Garland, this flagrantly anti-Catholic program by the FBI was widespread, fully supported by senior officials, authorized undercover agents to infiltrate Catholic parishes, attempted to influence elections, and may be ongoing.”

“Meanwhile, the Biden administration has stood idly by as Catholic churches have been attacked more than 200 times since May of 2022,” he added.
