FBI to target ‘misinformation’ as ‘election crimes,’ FBI whistleblower docs obtained by Veritas say

Despite reports of the FBI urging at least one social media giant away from disseminating reporting on Hunter Biden’s “laptop from hell” ahead of the 2020 presidential election, a move interpreted as election interference by many, the bureau appears to have no intentions anytime soon of untangling from our elections.

The right-of-center watchdog group Project Veritas published a newly leaked document Thursday which it said was provided by an FBI whistleblower detailing the bureau’s approach to “election crimes.”

“It lists ‘misinformation’ as a potential election crime, describing it as ‘false or misleading information spread mistakenly or unintentionally.’ The document also lists ‘disinformation’ as a potential election crime, describing it as ‘false or inaccurate information intended to mislead others,'” Project Veritas explained. “It continues, ‘Disinformation campaigns on social media are used to deliberately confuse, trick, or upset the public.'”

Par for the course, at least when dealing with the left, the issue of who gets to determine what is “misinformation” and/or “disinformation” is concerning — Project Veritas reminded readers of the Biden administration’s infamous “Disinformation Governance Board” that was canned after serious blowback to the idea being announced.

Attorney Harmeet Dhillon, who represents the watchdog group, shared the document on Twitter:

In another section of the leaked document labelled “Things to Consider,” the FBI reminded its agents that the First Amendment and Fourth Amendment exist. Both amendments are in the Bill of Rights and protect Americans’ rights to free speech and against “unreasonable” searches or seizures.

The Bureau also flagged the potential for “Voter/Ballot Fraud” in this election, an activity that some have attempted to rule out as a threat to the American electoral system.


Dhillon responded to an inquiry from Justin Haskins asking if the reporting was legit, “[W]hat part of this seems inconsistent with anything you have heard said from the White House press podium, or Merrick Garland’s mouth/his lawsuits?

Here’s a quick sampling of responses to the story from social media that suggest if intimidation was the plan, it’s working:
