Once is not enough: DOJ refuses to discipline 2 ‘corrupt’ prosecutors

There are lots of suspicions about the integrity of the FBI and the Department of Justice these days. After all, those bureaucracies worked hand-in-glove with Democrats to fabricate the now-debunked “Russia collusion” conspiracy theory to use against President Donald Trump.

The record hasn’t been helped any by at least one worker having been found to have corrupted evidence in that series of assaults on Trump.

Now a report in The Federalist takes the reputations of those operations even further down.

Jordan Boyd, in that report, notes that the Office of the Inspector General has confirmed that the DOJ refused to prosecute “at least two of hits corrupt, lawbreaking attorneys.”

The report comes just weeks after Merrick Garland, Joe Biden’s attorney general, blasted Americans “for daring to question the Department of Justice and the FBI’s credibility.”

But the report said the lawyers were involved in “inappropriate, illegal, and unruly behavior” and Garland let it go “unchecked.”

One report cited an assistant U.S. attorney who had “Inappropriate Physical Contact with a Foreign Service National.” The offender “forcibly” grabbed the other person, who worked at the State Department.

“The OIG also found that this specific attorney engaged in ‘Other Unprofessional Conduct while on a Department of Justice Detail Assignment in a Foreign Country’ including ‘becoming inebriated in the presence of foreign government officials and making offensive and demeaning remarks to foreign government officials.'”

Still no prosecution by Garland.

The Federalist explained the other report showed DOJ found that another assistant exposed his “genitals while in a public place,” “sexually assaulted a civilian while on a date,” and then didn’t speak the truth about the situation.

“Despite these facts, the DOJ also rejected prosecuting this unnamed individual,” the report said.

A third situation involved an assistant who was in a traffic stop and “misused the AUSA title” while trying to drive under the influence.

Such behavior was “prejudicial” to the government, the report found.

There was no information available on whether that situation resulted in any discipline.

It was Garland who had claimed, just weeks ago, that, “Faithful adherence to the rule of law is the bedrock principle of the Justice Department.”

That came shortly after America erupted in criticism of his raid, by the FBI, on President Donald Trump’s home.
