Emails obtained via a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request allege Education Secretary Miguel Cardona solicited the letter from National School Boards Association (NSBA) officials to President Joe Biden that targeted parents voicing concerns about education issues as potential “domestic terrorists.”

The emails, obtained by Parents Defending Education (PDE), allegedly reveal the White House was already “actively engaged” with NSBA President Viola Garcia and interim CEO Chip Slaven prior to the group’s letter to Biden.

“Should this allegation be true, it would reveal that this administration’s pretextual war on parents came from the highest levels,” PDE President Nicole Neily said, as reported by Fox News Digital Tuesday.

The newly obtained documents appear to show an email exchange between NSBA board members Marnie Maldonado and Secretary-Treasurer Kristi Swett, dated October 5-6, 2021, in which Swett asserted Slaven “told the officers he was writing a letter to provide information to the White House, from a request by Secretary Cordona.”
