In case you missed it…
Over the weekend The Gateway Pundit learned that the FBI was scouring our website and comment threads.
Following the unprecedented raid on Mar-a-Lago, the FBI feared retribution from the American public for their ongoing partisan attacks on President Trump.
Americans were outraged to see their premier law enforcement agency once again used as the paramilitary force of the Democrat Party.
The FBI was put on high alert following the raid due to the protests planned at its offices, Bloomberg‘s Jason Leopold reported.
“NEW via my FOIA: Federal law enforcement officers scoured social media to identify threats to FBI buildings and agents and issued internal warnings about possibly armed protests in the days after the FBI searched former President Trump’s Florida estate,” Leopold tweeted.
The FBI was scouring the comments at The Gateway Pundit, other conservative websites, and social media.
The FBI flagged this article posted at The Gateway Pundit:
On August 9, The Gateway Pundit posted an article on a planned demonstration outside the FBI headquarters in Washington DC to protest the “out of control FBI.”
The protest was organized by Special Ops Veteran Adam Hardage who said he sees his current mission clear as day; Defending America against Tyranny.
TGP later updated the report that the protest was canceled due to the possibility of bad actors and unpredictable actions of law enforcement agencies.
The article received hundreds of responses from patriots, 892 people in total.
The FBI also flagged a comment posted by a commenter at The Gateway Pundit.
The comment was in response to this Gateway Pundit report published two days after the raid on August 10th:
The FBI flagged the comment seven minutes after it was posted in our comment section.
The commenter “Praying4DCTsunami” wrote that the protest would be “target practice time using FBI agents who have not quit.”
The comment has since been deleted.
The Federal Protective Service (FPS), the governmental entity that protects federal buildings, flagged the comment.
In the 22-page document released by Leopold, there were only two threatening statements.
The next day, Chris Wray issued a statement condemning abuse and threats.
For the record, The Gateway Pundit does not allow abusive, racist, anti-Semitic, or nasty, hateful comments on our site.
