A recent report by Judicial Watch revealed that the FBI’s targeting of “radical-traditionalist Catholics” was not limited to a single field office but was approved at a high level within the agency.

The original leaked document from the Richmond, VA field office aimed to justify the targeting of individuals with “Radical-traditionalist Catholic ideology” as threats.

Before the leak, The FBI described the strategy as beingh “opportunities for threat mitigation,” by Counterterrorism Division agents.

This effort was coordinated with officials from Portland and Milwaukee. (Trending: FBI Bribery Probe Caught Joe Biden’s Brother On Tape)

Judicial Watch’s report, titled, “Domain Perspective – Threat Target/Facilitation Platform, FBI Richmond,” included a section titled, “Interest of Racially or Ethnically Motivated Violent Extremists in Radical-Traditionalist Catholic Ideology Almost Certainly Presents New Mitigation Opportunities.”

“FBI Richmond assesses the increasingly observed interest of RMVEs [Racially or ethnically motivated violent extremists] in RTC [Radical-Traditionalist Catholic] ideology almost certainly presents new opportunities for threat mitigation through the exploration of new avenues for tripwire and source development. This assessment is based on [redacted],” read the report.

Rep. Clay Higgins reacted to the development on social media, writing, “Sound familiar?”

He included this excerpt from the report, “Contrary to statements under oath by FBI Director Wray, official documents proved that the FBI was targeting Catholics as ‘violent extremists’ and the undercover operation was widespread.”

“Wake up America,” he added.

Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton wrote in the report, “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,” he continued.

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

According to The Western Journal, the House Judiciary Committee was given a version of a document that claimed racially motivated violent extremists have “a persistent Catholic-oriented base with which to interact.”

The FBI added, “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,” explained the Bureau.

“Conversely, deep-seated anti-Catholicism remains a characteristic of many far-right white nationalists,” suggested the FBI.

Tim Huelskamp, Senior Advisor to CatholicVote 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.”

The report suggests that the FBI’s Office of General Counsel reviewed and approved the targeting of Catholics.

The document also indicates that racially motivated violent extremists have a persistent Catholic-oriented base and lists certain groups as “hate groups.”

The FBI’s actions have led to calls for a criminal inquiry into the matter.
