Judicial Watch reports it has obtained FBI documents that show family members of top White House adviser Valerie Jarrett were “hardcore Communists” investigated by the government.
According to the report, Jarrett’s father, pathologist and geneticist Dr. James Bowman, had a lengthy FBI file showing extensive ties to Communist organizations and individuals. One of those was the Communist-sympathizing group Association of Internes and Medical Students.
Jarrett’s maternal grandfather, Robert Rochon Taylor, had a business relationship with paid Soviet agent named Alfred Stern, according to Judicial Watch. Stern also had a contact with Bowman.
Jarrett’s father-in-law, Vernon Jarrett, also has an FBI file, the group reports.
“For a period of time Vernon Jarrett appeared on the FBI’s Security Index and was considered a potential Communist saboteur who was to be arrested in the event of a conflict with the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR),” according to Judicial Watch.
“His FBI file reveals that he was assigned to write propaganda for a Communist Party front group in Chicago that would ‘disseminate the Communist Party line among … the middle class.'”
“Jarrett and her family also had strong ties to Frank Marshal Davis, a big Obama mentor and Communist Party member with an extensive FBI file,” the group says on its website.
