WASHINGTON, D.C (LifeSiteNews) — Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Director Christopher Wray should be impeached for the agency’s role in targeting pro-lifers and Latin Mass Catholics, according to a resolution set to be introduced by Georgia Republican Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene.
“Under Wray’s watch, the FBI has intimidated, harassed, and entrapped American citizens that have been deemed enemies of the Biden regime. As such, Director Wray has turned the FBI into Joe Biden and Merrick Garland’s personal police force,” the resolution, first obtained by The Daily Caller, states. “The Soviet-style tactics used by the FBI against normal Americans are unprecedented in this country. FBI whistleblower Garret O’Boyle told congressional investigators that the FBI created a terrorist threat tag following the Dobbs Supreme Court decision in 2022.”
The FBI is planning to intensify its “assessment” and “mitigation” of “Radical Traditionalist Catholics” over the next 12 to 24 months according to an explosive document from a former agent turned whistleblower.
SIGN & SHARE: Tell the FBI to stop its surviellance of faithful Catholics and focus on the real criminals.
The bombshell 8-page memo was released by former FBI agent Kyle Serpahin on his website UncoveredDC Wednesday. The report, written by an FBI analyst in Richmond, Virginia, was published for internal agency use only on January 23, is titled, “Interest of Racially or Ethnically Motivated Violent Extremists in Radical-Traditionalist Catholic Ideology Almost Certainly Presents New Mitigation Opportunities.”
Seraphin describes the briefing as an “intelligence product” that, though not being exhaustive, can be used as an initial reference point for the agency to “prop up” future investigations on the subject. He says he obtained the document from an anonymous Baptist employee for the agency.
“This is the first FBI Richmond domain product to focus on the interest of racially or ethnically motivated violent extremists in the Radical Traditional Catholic movement,” the document states. “A search of FBI databases indicates this is also the first FBI finished intelligence product to specifically address this environmental variable.”
SIGN: Politically-motivated witch-hunts of faithful Catholics cannot be allowed in a civilized society
Among the most controversial aspects of the memo is that it directly cites a defamatory study conducted by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) on the subject “Radical Traditional Catholicism.” The SPLC has long been rejected as a legitimate resource for the FBI, Seraphin says, but in this instance, it is being relied on as a primary source to justify its efforts. The memo also references three anti-Catholic smear articles (here, here, and here) published by leftwing websites Salon and The Atlantic to defend its monitoring.
The report alleges that its real motivation is a concern that “Radical Traditionalist Catholic Ideology” possesses an “anti-Semitic, anti-immigrant, anti-LGBT, and white supremacy” outlook, and that this presents a threat to the US’s domestic well-being. The report further claims that adherents to RTC ideology “frequently share language and symbolism, such as crusader references or anti-Semitic discourses” online that pro-life white nationalists also support.
SIGN: The FBI's smear campaign against Catholics cannot be allowed to stand
Please send this petition to as many concerned Americans as possible - we cannot allow the continued politicization of the FBI.
FBI whistleblower releases docs showing agents are surveilling "Radical" Traditional Catholics in Virginia
“O’Boyle confirmed that the purpose of the tag was to target pro-life individuals. On September 23, 2022, armed FBI agents in tactical gear raided the family home of Mark Houck, a pro-life Catholic and father of 7 young children, because he obstructed access to an abortion clinic,” the resolution states.
Houck later beat the charges in federal court, as previously reported by LifeSiteNews.
Wray “has become a lackey of the Biden regime, persecuting the enemies of his handlers, including both public and private citizens,” the resolution states.
The resolution states further:
FBI whistleblower Kyle Seraphin obtained a leaked FBI document that targets Traditional Latin Mass Catholics. The document, titled ‘Racially or Ethnically Motivated Violent Extremists (RMVE) and their interests in ‘Radical-Traditionalist Catholics’ or RTCs,’ was reported out of the Richmond Field Office and dated for January 23, 2023. This leaked document outlined a plan for the FBI to spy on Catholics, particularly Latin Mass-attending Catholics, who, according to the document, have harbored ‘white supremacy.’ The FBI document indicated intentions to have informants within the Catholic Church, on advice from the Southern Poverty Law Center.
Congresswoman Greene’s office provided further comment to The Daily Caller. “It is unacceptable for the Director of the FBI or any civil officer to exercise his power in a way that targets one political class while doing favors for the other,” her office said.

While the resolution may not pass the U.S. Senate, it could have a chance in the House of Representatives. At a minimum, it would force Democrats to record a vote on the appropriateness of using the federal government to target conservative American citizens.
The Republican-led House of Representatives is currently investigating this issue. It recently concluded that Attorney General Merrick Garland had “no legitimate basis” to release a directive ordering federal law enforcement to surveil activists who spoke out at school board meetings about COVID mandates, sexualized content, or racial politics.
Congresswoman Greene also said she will introduce impeachment articles against Garland and Matthew Graves, the U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia. She has criticized Graves for not pursuing some criminals in the district while prosecuting participants in the violence on January 6, 2021.
“After surveying local law enforcement, U.S. Attorney’s offices around the country reported back to Main Justice that there was no legitimate law-enforcement basis for the Attorney General’s directive to use federal law-enforcement and counterterrorism resources to investigate school board-related threats,” the interim staff report from the Committee on the Judiciary and the Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government concluded.
