I’m not an expert by any means but criminal complaints read just like business reports: the facts as you know them, set out in a logical format.

If this was something that you had first-hand knowledge of or if you were holding original documentation/proof you would probably get a lawyer to fill in all of the legal citations so that you could go directly to court to file an official complaint which could lead to a grand jury indictment.

What we’re hoping to do is initiate an investigation with the FBI so I guess this would more accurately be referred to as “an allegation of probable cause.” There are a few sample forms online but they’re geared toward police work.

If you’re especially talented with executive summaries the FBI maintains a Tips and Public Leads from You can also call toll-free: 1-800-CALLFBI (225-5324)  Or visit your local FBI offices to speak directly to an agent, thru

I tend to think written communication works best when the details are complicated or lengthy. If hand delivery to a local FBI office is not possible, opt for registered mail so you’ll have proof of delivery.

Regardless of the method you choose Always, Always get names/ business cards of the agents who assist you. Follow up is important for being taken seriously. It’s also a good idea to keep track of the times, and dates of any contact just in case the ball gets dropped.

Here’s what you should include in your complaint:

I. Complainant (person(s) filing complaint)

Your Identifying Data:

first name
middle or middle initial
last name

Contact Information
street address
zip code

Other pertinent info that may give you significant insight or first hand knowledge to the allegations. Maybe, like me, you’re a law-abiding, concerned citizen who feels the election was stolen by means of concealment, deceit, collusion, and fraud.  After listing your personal information, begin your complaint with these words:

I, _____ , the complainant in this case, state that the following is true to the best of my knowledge and belief.

II. Defendants

Identifying Data Defendaint #1
Barack Obama and all aliases

Contact Information:
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue
Washington DC

Identifying Data Denfendant #2

Contact Information

etc. …

III. Allegations and Supporting Facts

List all details of the alleged crime. Include as much information as possible. Times, dates, places, people involved or in attendance. Links if your filing by online form.

IV. Statement of Probable Cause

The Complainant states that these facts establish probable cause that the following crime(s) has(have) occurred (i.e. the ultimate result of these actions was the commissiono of this (these) crime(s) ).

V. Supporting Documents/ Video/ Photos

Video can be submitted on disk

Anyway, that’s all there is to it. They’ve made it much easier for the average citizen to file allegations but please understand that false allegations at the federal level are nothing to mess with. Stick with the truth as you know it and let’s keep the pressure on.


Editor’s Note: Lisa’s submission was a comment at The Post & Email, but it deserved its own post. Since there seems to be an endemic and system-wide breakdown of law enforcement in this country, regarding Obama’s activities, I would personally add that you call FBI offices first, before filing a complaint, to find out if they would even consider a complaint made against the persons you accuse of criminal actions.  If they ask you why you are asking, say you are looking for an FBI office where the Constitution is still respected as the supreme law of the land.

    You should be able to take your documentation to a county grand jury.

    My entry is more of a question than comment, but it can be looked at in both ways I feel. It is the same question that I asked of federal district courts in their email.
    In the interest of the public laws, federal and state, concerning the rights of special needs students and their families in Arizona. I would like to report the corruption of a school district. I have a report with all the facts prepared to deliver, however I would like to know if it is proper to ask a federal judge to take my sworn report and does he or she have to read it first. What right does a citizen of the U.S. have to; swear in front of a federal judge that a report of corruption is truthful? Is there a fundamental or credible difference when compared to swearing in front of a Notary Public? Thank you for your time and attention.
    Also would this be referred to in legal terms as a sworn complaint of corruption? Or, must it be referred to only as a REPORT of corruption activities?

    Rasta Bossman, you’re absolutely right. I’m so sorry! That should be ‘defendant’. Complainant and plaintiff are the same. I should have typed this out and then just pasted into the comment box but I was afraid I would get back or I’d forget.

    I’m pretty sure the people you want investigated are not “plaintiffs”

    Hi Mr Charlton, thank you so much for helping me get this info out into the public’s hands!

    Please feel free to copy & paste and help spread the word far and wide.

    This is part of what use to be taught in Civics classes in all public schools, that is, until the Federal Department of Education decided that an informed public is too difficult to manipulate. I was lucky, my high school chose to keep civics class and make it mandatory for graduation.

    If you get the chance, check out the FBI’s website:

    It might make things easier if you first ask the question: Are there any Oath Keepers in your office, and if so, may I please speak with him/her?

    Oath Keepers seem to be the only people in government publicly identifiable as willing to put their name and reputation on the line in support of the Constitution.

    That’s a good place to start.
