There is certainly prima faie

There is certainly prima facie evidence for Gibson to pursue a civil lawsuit against the agents, agencies, and policy makes who had anything to do with the targeting of Gibson. That is grounds for civil rights violations of the First Amendment freedoms of speech, and its inherent common law freedom of association recognized by the Supreme Court, as well as violations of equal protection under the Fifth Amendment(Yes the 14th amend Equal Protection applies only to states, but the Supreme Court recognizes a right to equal protection against the federal government as well under the Fifth Amendment's due process clause Bolling v. Sharpe, 347 U.S. 497, 1954).

Based on the information in this story there is prima facie evidence of targeting Gibson based on political beliefs, speech, affiliations and donations.

A civil suit will not stop the criminal investigation, but it will allow Gibson much broader and far reaching tools to gather evidence through discovery and deposition such as access to internal memos, emails, notes conversations between agents, management and policy makers as welll as deposing under oath all the agents involved, their supervisors, and decision makers and higher ups to investigate who made the decision to specifically target Gibson, who influence the investigation, who pressured it, when, why and political affiliations, and move up the chain for sources of influence and bias and political pressure in targeting Gibson. While the civil and criminal cases are separate actions, the evidence obtainable through the civil discovery may also be used to show bias and lack of credibility on the government's part in the criminal case. The civil case helps to level the playing field so Gibson is not solely on the defensive.

the upside is...

...with the feds doing this kinda stuff, it's getting easier to turn people on to Paul everyday.

But the downside is that local yokels gain confidence about getting away with trampling people's rights.


The downside is, this is not

The downside is, this is not even on the news.
