Human Events: MIKE DAVIS: Corrupt Justice Department prosecutors are doing Biden’s dirty work

Human Events

two-tiered system of justice is something that’s prevalent in banana republics and dictatorships across the world. Rarely would you say that could occur in America. But unfortunately, it appears to be happening before our very eyes, and President Joe Biden and his army of corrupt prosecutors are precisely to blame.

Attorney General Merrick Garland has executed the law in a more partisan manner than perhaps any lead DOJ official before him. Biden’s and Garland’s Justice Department has engaged in what can only be called political lawfare, consistently putting Democrat political operatives on cases involving former President Donald Trump, Biden’s chief political rival for the 2024 election.

This same Justice Department just let Delaware US Attorney David Weiss–handpicked by both Democrat home-state senators–enter into a plea agreement with Hunter Biden that turned out to be nothing more than a sweetheart deal. Sadly, it is no surprise, considering how much Attorney General Merrick Garland has politicized and weaponized the Justice Department. These corrupt prosecutors, who all answer to Garland, have incredibly close ties to national Democrats and the liberal establishment.

Derek Hines, one of the prosecutors on the Hunter Biden sweetheart plea deal, served as special counsel to former FBI director Louis Freeh from 2013 through February 2015. To say Freeh was cozy with the Biden family would be putting it lightly. In April 2016, Louis Freeh gave $100,000 to two trust funds belonging to then-Vice President Joe Biden’s grandkids.

Soros-funded Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg created a made-up position for Matthew Colangelo, now one of his top deputies, to go after Trump on bogus felony charges for the non-crime of settling a nuisance claim. The prior Manhattan DA, US Attorney, Federal Election Commission, and Bragg himself declined to prosecute under this laughable legal theory.

But that changed with Bragg’s dreamt-up job for Colangelo, a senior political appointee in the Biden Justice Department, Obama White House, and Obama Labor Secretary Tom Perez’s office. That’s not to mention his work as the number two to Vanita Gupta, the radical progressive operative who is number three in the Biden Justice Department.

Well-known across the mainstream media for his aggressive pursuit of Trump, Jack Smith’s role as Garland’s handpicked special counsel comes after Smith’s wife Katy Chevigny donated $1,000 to Biden’s presidential campaign. Chevigny also produced a movie about former First Lady Michelle Obama. His legal career isn’t beyond reproach either, losing 8-0 before the Supreme Court in his attempt to throw former Virginia Republican Governor Bob McDonnell in prison on sham corruption charges when it looked like he could challenge Obama for the presidency in 2012.

Jack Smith’s partisanship runs straight down to his deputy, Karen Gilbert, who donated more than $2,000 to the Obama and Biden presidential campaigns. Her integrity is so sterling that she had to resign as the Chief of the Narcotics division in the Miami US Attorney’s office for her role in secretly taping a defense lawyer in 2009. The doctor she was pursuing, Dr. Ali Shaygan, said of Gilbert, “I have no reason to believe that she will behave ethically in any circumstance. I do not find it appropriate for her to still be employed by the Department of Justice.” Shaygan was acquitted on 141 counts of illegally dispensing pain medication.

Sophia Brill, who works currently as Associate Counsel for the Biden White House, worked in the Justice Department’s National Security Division during the unprecedented and unlawful raid of Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate last year. Brill also served as a top Democrat attorney on the Senate Judiciary Committee, including for Senators Chris Coons and Cory Booker.

Biden and his corrupt allies within the Justice Department would love nothing more than for Trump to die in prison for a fight between the former president and Biden’s librarians and other bureaucrats. From a legal perspective, espionage charges against Trump are nothing short of laughable. Unfortunately, Biden’s politicization of federal law enforcement is no laughing matter.

Under the Presidential Records Act, Trump was allowed to have any and all of his presidential records. The president determines what are personal records (he owns) versus presidential records (government owns, but former president can have anytime). The 2012 ruling by a DC Obama judge involving former President Bill Clinton keeping classified documents hidden deep in a sock drawer confirms this.

Lest we not forget Biden was discovered to have five sets of stolen classified records from the Obama White House and even the Senate, in several locations; including the garage where he kept his Corvette, moved several times, accessible by the Biden’s Chinese agent, and unguarded for years. Unlike former presidents, former vice presidents to not get a federal funded and secure Office of the Former President, with secure space, staff with security clearances, and Secret Service protection.

There is evidence Biden used these stolen classified records to take millions in foreign bribes and other corruption. Yet, Biden’s corrupt prosecutors won’t touch him.

Until we root out these one-sided Justice Department officials, we can expect more of the same. The Republican-led House of Representatives must act now through any means necessary, whether that be contempt or impeachment hearings, in order to tear down this corrupt house of cards that Biden has built.
