FBI’s New Extremism Category Targets Trump Supporters Ahead of 2024 Election


As the political climate intensifies ahead of the 2024 U.S. presidential election, a startling development emerged from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).

The agency, in a move that raised eyebrows and sparked controversy, quietly established a new category of extremism. This new classification is specifically designed to include supporters of former President Donald Trump and his Make America Great Again (MAGA) movement.

The FBI’s decision to focus on this particular group has been met with criticism, with many viewing it as politically motivated targeting, which raises constitutional concerns.

According to classified data obtained by Newsweek, the majority of the FBI’s current “anti-government” investigations are centered around Trump supporters. This revelation has led to accusations of bias and political manipulation within the agency.

An anonymous FBI official admitted the agency finds itself in a precarious position. While the FBI is committed to preventing domestic terrorism, it must also uphold the constitutional rights of all Americans.

These rights include the freedom to campaign, express opinions freely, and protest against the government. By focusing on Trump and his MAGA supporters, the FBI risks inciting the very anti-government activists it aims to counter.

Adding fuel to the fire, FBI whistleblower Steve Friend has publicly criticized the agency’s actions. Friend has called for the indictment and arrest of every FBI and Department of Justice executive involved in what he describes as a scam.

He further advocates for the abolition of the FBI, arguing that the agency is beyond repair.

Friend’s criticisms are based on his assertion that the FBI manipulated the events of January 6th to inflate its domestic terrorism statistics. He points out while the number of investigations in 2021 nearly doubled from the previous year to around 9,000, the number of “full investigations” leading to arrests was only 1,446.

This figure is not significantly higher than the 1,146 January 6 protesters who have been charged with a crime.

The controversy surrounding the FBI’s new extremism category comes at a time when the Biden administration is reportedly targeting Trump with over 91 indictments on alleged criminal acts in several states.

Critics argue this, coupled with the FBI’s focus on MAGA supporters, indicates a concerted effort to undermine Trump and his followers ahead of the 2024 election.

The FBI’s decision to create a new category of extremism targeting Trump-MAGA supporters has sparked a heated debate about political bias within the agency. As the 2024 election approaches, it remains to be seen how this controversy will unfold and what impact it may have on the political landscape.
