The founding father of a veteran-led emergency prevention organization accused the FBI Tuesday of falsely labeling him a facilitator of domestic terror, adding that his family has also been targeted over their association together with his group.
Former U.S. Green Beret servicemember Mike Glover, who founded American Contingency to supply disaster relief and support, told Fox News that he feels betrayed by the country he spent nearly 20 years protecting after a whistleblower grievance exposed by Rep. Jim Jordan, the present chair of the House Judiciary Committee, confirmed that his organization was targeted by the FBI and falsely designated a facilitator of domestic terror.
“It’s horrible,” Glover said in an interview Tuesday on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.” “I’m an entrepreneur first. That’s what I desired to do after a protracted time of service, and it just sucks being targeted by a country. My mom was targeted. My mom’s Facebook account was deleted since the FBI communicated to social media and destroyed all the social media accounts. My mom got here here from Korea from meeting my military dad within the Army, and we’re coping with this. She is coping with this. Her small beauty salon…is coping with this.”
In a letter made public in September, Jordan said the FBI associated American Contingency with domestic terrorism, despite its own investigation proving otherwise, in an effort to “advance a misleading political agenda.”
Quoting an unnamed whistleblower from contained in the bureau, Jordan said the FBI investigated Glover’s military records, his veteran’s disability rating, and even his monthly disability profit before ultimately determining he was not a perpetrator or instigator of domestic terror but as an alternative a “decorated veteran of the USA” whose military record and frequent social media posts reflect his “patriotism for the USA.”
Nevertheless, the FBI maintained a terror designation on American Contingency despite thoroughly investigating the organization and its founder, Jordan’s letter states.
“I’m a retired former special ops guy, a sergeant major, have an impeccable profession, have done nothing incorrect, never broken any laws, they usually went into my profession,” Glover told Fox News host Tucker Carlson. “Luckily, someone in the FBI, likely an FBI hostage rescue guy that I worked with oversees, did a report – and said I don’t know why you’re looking into this guy but stop and desist.”
Glover said he was suspicious he was being targeted after he was “suppressed” online and booted from various social media platforms.
“It’s something that I believed was a rumor, because I used to be getting suppressed and deleted, canceled off of each social media platform. But it surely wasn’t. It was something that was true,” he said, crediting the whistleblower for speaking out on his behalf.
Glover, who hosts the “Black Rifle Coffee Podcast,” said he believes he’s a victim of the DOJ’s effort to focus on political ideologies with which they disagree, adding that their “tactics” eerily resemble those utilized in the war on terror, which he witnessed firsthand during his time overseas.
“If we’re talking about subversion, sabotage, if we’re taking a look at government entities going for residents, these are the primary precursors to operational prepare the environment. We call it ‘shaping the environment.’ I don’t like seeing it as someone who served a really very long time, who desires to live in peace,” he said.
When contacted for a response in September, the FBI told Fox News, “We now have no comment on any specific groups or individuals. Nevertheless, the FBI doesn’t and can’t designate domestic terrorist organizations. The FBI can never open an investigation based solely on protected First Amendment activity.”
“We cannot and don’t investigate ideology,” the FBI statement continued. “We concentrate on individuals who commit or intend to commit violence and criminal activity that constitutes a federal crime or poses a threat to national security. The FBI’s mission is to guard the American people and uphold the Structure. One doesn’t come on the expense of the opposite.”
