The founder 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 with his group.
Former U. S. Green Beret servicemember Mike Glover, who founded American Contingency to provide disaster relief and support, told Fox News that he feels betrayed by the country he spent nearly two decades protecting after a whistleblower complaint exposed by the Rep. Jim Jordan, the current 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 is what I wanted to do after a long time of service, and it just sucks being targeted by a country. My mom was targeted. My mom’s Facebook account was deleted because the FBI communicated to social media and destroyed all the social media accounts. My mom came here from Korea from meeting my military dad in the Army, and we are dealing with this. She is dealing with this. Her small beauty salon…is dealing 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 inside the bureau, Jordan said the FBI investigated Glover’s military records, his veteran’s disability rating, and even his monthly disability benefit before ultimately determining he was not a perpetrator or instigator of domestic terror but instead a “decorated veteran of the United States” whose military record and frequent social media posts reflect his “patriotism for the United States.”
However, the FBI maintained a terror designation on American Contingency despite thoroughly investigating the organization and its founder, Jordan’s letter states.
“I am a retired former special ops guy, a sergeant major, have an impeccable career, have done nothing wrong, never broken any laws, and they went into my career,” Glover told Fox News host Tucker Carlson. “Luckily, somebody 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 cease and desist.”
