Feds in the Shadows: Leaked Documents Indicate over 300 Members of Oath Keepers May Be Current or Former DHS Employees – Not Clear How Many Are Federal Operatives

Feds in the Shadows –
A leaked list of Oath Keepers members was published on Tuesday at the Project on Government Oversight (POGO) website.
It is not clear how POGO got this list.
The list included current or former employees of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) including members of the Border Patrol, Coast Guard, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and the Secret Service.
It is not clear how many of these men and women were federal operatives but the number is likely significant.
Despite the constant attacks by the liberal media and Democrat politicians, the Oath Keepers is not a criminal organization.
A leaked report on The Oath Keepers paramilitary organization committed to the US Constitution found that potentially hundreds of far-right extremists have infiltrated federal law enforcement, the Project on Government Oversight reported on Monday.
The Insider reported:
Launched in 2009, the Oath Keepers from the start tried to recruit from the military and law enforcement with an ostensible goal of upholding the US Constitution and having its members refuse unlawful orders, per the Southern Poverty Law Center, which labels it an “extremist” group. In practice, that has meant, as on January 6, rejecting the rule of law — court orders and democratic processes that thwart far-right policy goals — in favor of conspiracy theories and armed resistance.
More than a decade of recruitment has led the group to collect at least 306 members who have described themselves as “current or former employees of the Department of Homeland Security,” according to POGO, which reviewed the leaked membership documents from the group in partnership with the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project.
DHS agencies include US Customs and Immigration Services, the Transportation Security Administration, and the US Secret Service. Most of the self-described DHS employees asserted that they were retired, but at least one claimed to be an activity-duty Secret Service agent; another said they were a supervisor with Border Patrol, according to the documents reviewed by POGO.
As The Gateway Pundit reported earlier, there were dozens of federal operatives who had infiltrated The Oath Keepers and The Proud Boys organizations for several years now.
