Ron Johnson slams DOJ's investigation of schools, saying it unfairly targets parents

Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) on Sunday slammed the Department of Justice’s investigation into schools, saying it unfairly targets parents.

“What the attorney general is doing … is outrageous. It is such a violation of people’s constitutional rights to petition their government, to free speech,” Johnson said during an interview on Cats Roundtable with John Catsimatidis on WABC 770 AM.

The DOJ and Attorney General Merrick Garland announced they would be investigating threats made against school board members and teachers after a string of contentious school board meetings across the country.

Some parents have been protesting at school board meetings and speaking out against mask mandates and the teaching of critical race theory.

In a letter from the National School Board Association to President Biden, the board said: “As these acts of malice, violence, and threats against public school officials have increased, the classification of these heinous actions could be the equivalent to a form of domestic terrorism and hate crimes.”
