A second FBI official has been accused by whistleblowers of pressuring agents to reclassify cases as “domestic violent extremism” to boost case numbers, according to House Judiciary Committee Republicans.
The alleged actions are “scandalous,” said Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, in light of the Biden administration’s effort to frame domestic violent extremism as America’s “greatest threat,” reported Breitbart News.
Jill Sanborn, who worked at the FBI for more than two decades, was the recipient of a letter from Jordan, the committee’s ranking member, and Rep. Mike Johnson, R-La., that came after the whistleblower also accused Assistant Special Agent in Charge Timothy Thibault of seeking to inflate domestic violent extremism case numbers.
When President Biden declared in a speech during his first week in office that he was ordering an assessment of the “domestic violent extremism” threat, Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., said he understood Biden to be referencing the entire opposition to Democrats on the right: “If you read his speech and listen to it carefully, much of it is thinly veiled innuendo, calling us white supremacists, calling us racists, calling us every name in the book.”
Jordan, in a July 27 letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray, said FBI officials “are pressuring agents to reclassify cases as ‘domestic violent extremism’ even if the cases do not meet the criteria for such a classification.”
Earlier this month, Thibault was named in whistleblower allegations reported to Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, charging he quashed investigative activity related to Hunter Biden’s laptop.
Since then, according to Grassley, Wray informed the senator that Thibault will no longer be making decisions about which investigations the FBI should pursue.
The letter from Jordan and Johnson requests that Sanborn appear before the committee to testify about the allegations. Sanborn is not legally required to appear.
In testimony to Congress last year before leaving the FBI, she said “domestic violent extremists will continue to pose an elevated threat of violence to the United States.”

Allegations that the FBI’s decision-making is politically motivated have taken center stage in the aftermath of the bureau’s raid Monday of former President Trumps Mar-a-Lago estate.
EDITOR’S NOTE: During the Biden era of rapidly metastasizing madness, the greatest madness of all may be today’s shockingly widespread campaign to indoctrinate, seduce, groom and flat-out RECRUIT America’s children into the dark world of transgenderism. Countless LGBT activists, including many public-school teachers, have taken to proselytizing the new transgender salvation to America’s children, both on social media and within the schools themselves. Even Biden’s far-left Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra fully supports taxpayer-funded amputations of healthy body parts of these vulnerable children, declaring ghoulishly, “We should help those have the life-affirming care that they need.” The result? Untold numbers of America’s kids are being led into lives of not just unending conflict, confusion, suffering, deformity and disability, but far too often – as multiple studies prove – suicide. The whole unbelievable story – including the underlying reasons, almost entirely unreported elsewhere, for what amounts to the most massive child sexual abuse campaign in American history – is explored as never before in the July issue of WND’s critically acclaimed Whistleblower magazine, titled “WHAT’S REALLY BEHIND THE TRANSGENDER CRAZE?”
