(TheLibertyRevolution.com)- A group of Nine Democrats from the Senate Judiciary Committee are reportedly pressuring Attorney General Merrick Garland not to appeal an order from earlier in May from District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson to release an official memo from the Office of Legal Counsel which cleared former President Donald Trump from any criminal wrongdoing in relation to the Robert Mueller Russia investigation.
It’s the latest indication that Democrats still won’t stop with the investigations and believe that there is more to be learned about the investigation, despite special counsel Mueller and his colleagues failing to find any evidence that showed then-candidate Donald Trump colluded with Russia to win the 2016 presidential election.
In a letter to Garland, the nine Democrats said, “To be clear, these misrepresentations preceded our confirmation as Attorney General, but the Department you now lead bears responsibility for redressing them.”
“In that light, and in order to help rebuild the nation’s trust in DOJ’s independence after four years of turmoil, we urge DOJ not to appeal D.C. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson’s May 3 decision to order the release of this OLC memo,” the letter continues.
In order to build the nation’s trust…shouldn’t the government refrain from engaging in further investigations now that the allegations that prompted the investigations were already proven wrong?
Senator Dick Durbin of Illinois, who is the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, led the Democrats who signed the letter. The push comes after a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit was filed in 2019 by left-wing watchdog Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington. It sought documents from the Department of Justice referenced by former Attorney General William Barr in the determining that former President Trump did not obstruct justice.
Seriously, what do they think they’re going to find?
The Department of Justice has argued against releasing the documents saying that they fall under the exceptions to the FOI Act, as they contain attorney-client communication that is protected under law.
Let’s see if Merrick Garland, who was nominated by President Barack Obama as a Supreme Court Justice in 2016, cares about the law enough to object to the release of the documents.
