Federal Lawsuit Filed After Biden Administration Affirms Refusal To Release Covenant Shooter’s Manifesto

May 15, 2023 | Political News

A lawsuit has been filed in federal court against the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) after the Biden Administration affirms the agency’s refusal to release the manifesto of Nashville school shooter Audrey Elizabeth Hale.

The suit was filed by the Wisconsin Institute for Law and Liberty (WILL) on behalf of The Star News Network, Editor-in-Chief Patrick Leahy, and National Political Director Matt Kittle. 

Star News is investigating the motivation of Hale in the Covenant School shooting. The FBI has refused to release Hale’s manifesto, which Star News says is a violation of the Freedom of Information Act. 

“The release of these records is critical to understanding the mind and actions of a mass murderer, and can help form public policy to most effectively protect American citizens,” said Leahy.
