DOJ Shows Resistance to House Republicans’ Investigations; GOP Says Department Is ‘Scared’

Ashley Oliver 21 Jan 2023 Washington, DC

The Department of Justice (DOJ) told the Republican-led House Judiciary Committee on Friday “it may not always be possible” to comply with the committee’s investigative requests.

“While we will work diligently to accommodate requests for public testimony, it may not always be possible to participate or to address all the topics the Committee wishes to raise,” Carlos Uriarte, the assistant attorney general for the Office of Legislative Affairs, wrote to committee chair Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) in a letter obtained by Breitbart News.

Republicans’ requests “must be weighed against the Department’s interests in protecting the integrity of its work,” Uriarte noted.

The DOJ foreshadowing an inability to fully cooperate with the committee comes after Jordan contacted the department this past week, in his first communication since becoming committee chairman, to formally request documents, communication, and testimony from numerous DOJ officials.

Jordan’s requests pertained to the committee’s investigations into DOJ’s handling of certain parents attending school board meetings, its role in the southern border crisis, its raids on Mar-a-Lago and Project Veritas employees’ residences, its implementation of the FACE Act (the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act), its execution of January 6 investigations, and other concerns about “alleged politicization and bias.”

  • Ah, the air is so much fresher here...
Problem is the Rats strongarmed everyone in court to get whatever information they wanted, judicial and constitutional rules be damned.

Hope that precedent bites the DOJ on the butt.

Go with the army you got.
