FOI Letter to Congress Calls for Creation of a Joint Task Force to Investigate Online Threats Against Public Officials

In light of the increase in online threats, this morning Free Our Internet sent a letter asking committees in Congress with jurisdiction over the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to call for the formation of a joint task force to investigate credible, violent threats against policymakers made via or facilitated by social media.

This growing problem merits a proper response from members of Congress.
