Pink Police State: FOIA Documents Show FBI Surveilled Conservative Christian Women's Group for Their Beliefs

Congressman Jim Jordan has dispatched a letter demanding answers from FBI Director Christopher Wray after Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) documents revealed that the Bureau targeted a conservative women’s non-profit in 2016. Wray was given until August 24th to respond.

The group in question, Conservative Women for America (CWA) is a non-profit started in 1978 which advocates against feminism, for the traditional family, opposes gay marriage, and lobbies against abortion.

In mid-July, the Cato Institute uncovered evidence showing that an FBI agent opened up an “assessment” — essentially a proto-investigation — into CWA despite having no predicate to do so.

The agent, whose name is redacted in the FOIA request, decided to embark on a “fishing expedition” that looked at CWA’s finances in hopes of finding evidence of fraud.

At no point did the FBI have any evidence to suspect CWA of wrongdoing. The agent did not like the ideological beliefs of CWA so he or she dug up a bad review on Charity Navigator and used it as an excuse to violate the civil society group’s rights.
