Leaked FBI document lists “misinformation” as an “election crime”

By Dan Frieth | Reclaim The Net | October 28, 2022

A whistleblower leaked a document to Project Veritas showing that the FBI is focusing on election misinformation ahead of the 2022 midterm elections. The document lists what the agency should categorize as “election crimes.”

Among the election crimes highlighted in the documents is “misinformation.” The document defines misinformation as “false or misleading information spread mistakenly or unintentionally.”

Disinformation is also an election “crime,” and is defined as “false or inaccurate information intended to mislead others.” It adds: “Disinformation campaigns on social media are used to deliberately confuse, trick, or upset the public.”

The document appears to be another effort by the federal government to determine what is true and what is false. A few months ago, the Biden administration created the “Disinformation Governance Board” under the DHS. It dismantled it a few weeks later due to public backlash.

The FBI document lists things to consider, including the 1st and 4th Amendments, the Privacy Act, and protected vs. unprotected speech.

  1. Is this, then, liable to be regarded as a crime as it describes, since it lists actions which it may be doing by doing so, and in doing so, it… confuses people. And if people are deliberately confused, then they are misinformed. By misinformation. Or, am I missing something? Hope I’m not trick. Deliberately. Or not.

  2. I don’t think that the FBI should be engaging in “Misinformation/Disinformation” debates. The FBI should be upholding The Law, shouldn’t it?

    Nobody owns the Truth. It is up to us as to how we interpret it. The FBI (and the new Media Oligarchs) are now ‘censoring’ people’s opinions, which I think is a crime against “Freedom of Speech”.
    The FBI (particularly J Edgar Hoover) have a dreadful record of persecuting people who use “Freedom of Speech”

  3. Should we expect a federal agency who ignored ballot box stuffing, evidenced on video and confirmed with admissions, to determine what the truth is and considered it a crime?
    Set the 1st amendment aside for a moment. Americans are guaranteed 3 unalienable rights Life, Liberty and Property (not happiness). Without one of them the others fail. Liberty is a gift of free will, to have our own thoughts, opinion and beliefs without intrusion. So when a group of people, politicians, corporation, movement or secret society force their thoughts, opinions or beliefs on people who differ by making thoughts, opinions or beliefs a crime – we are in fact being denied Liberty. Speech is an expression of thought and no matter how ugly or hurtful it may be at times, its part of life and life’s experience of tolerance. What kind of society are they making to program the children to be complacent and without expression, to be compliant without question, to accept the answer without under-standing.
    So we now see our thoughts expressed in speech become criminal, our own free will to determine truth from lie shut down. I haven’t given anyone my consent or the authority to think for me.
