How the Barr DOJ Failed

Press Release:

    Attorney General Barr's resignation amidst a contested presidential election dominated last week's political airwaves. On Friday, Fitton reminded viewers that "AG Barr or at least the Justice Department under AG Barr has been a black hole in terms of responding to Judicial Watch." As Fitton reported, "they recently went to court to shut down all of our Clinton email investigations, discovery, and FOIA lawsuits — they don't want us to do anything."

    Fitton believes that the Justice Department has turned a blind eye to scandals surrounding VP Joe Biden, especially material evidence discovered on Hunter Biden's laptop last year. The scandals, which he has described as "obvious criminal conduct," were largely set aside by the Department of Justice, according to Fitton. "They [the DOJ] protected Joe Biden and interfered in the election by doing nothing about the Joe Biden scandals."

    Those defending the DOJ's decision to not investigate the Bidens are, in Fitton's estimation, misunderstanding the role the Agency plays in investigating corruption surrounding presidential candidates. While it is correct that the DOJ should not investigate candidates in a bid to influence the outcome of an election, Fitton believes that the Agency is doing just that — but in a different way: "this person is running for office and they get a get of jail free card." Likening the policy to a game of Monopoly, Fitton contrasts this approach with that employed by the DOJ against President Trump, when "they specifically targeted Trump because he was running for office."

    As Fitton concluded, "it doesn't matter who the next AG is, I don't expect any difference coming January. We just have to keep doing the work we're doing. We can't trust them to investigate Biden, so we'll do it instead."
