The Washington Post claims to have a major scoop, but as usual, the scoop inside the scoop requires reading between the lines of its lies.
The Washington Post found that senior Justice Department and FBI officials rejected or rebuffed early proposals to investigate actions taken by President Donald Trump and his close allies leading up to the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol… As a result, more than a year passed before federal prosecutors and FBI agents embarked on a formal investigation into nonviolent efforts within Trump’s orbit to steal the 2020 election.
What was causing the holdup?
The decision to charge militia members who were at the Capitol with seditious conspiracy — a step prosecutors thought could pressure them to implicate architects of the attack — was slowed as the Biden Justice Department waited months for Senate confirmation of senior leaders.
The Biden DOJ needed more political operatives on board to further weaponize the Justice Department and the FBI against its political opponents.
The FBI’s Washington Field Office twice in 2021 rebuffed federal prosecutors’ requests for agents — in February for the probe of whether Trump associates were linked to the riot, and then in November to investigate how Trump associates tried to overturn the election results.
The relevant question is how many of those Federal prosecutors were Biden or Obama appointees?
Key Justice Department officials ultimately pivoted after concluding they had sufficient evidence and that prosecuting rioters provided no clear path to examining the nonviolent efforts by the former president and his allies.
So the objective all along was to go after Trump. It was never about anything except hitting the political opposition and Biden’s likely 2024 opponent.
The Biden DOJ and its allies spent years pushing the FBI to go along with it.
The FBI did not join that probe until April 2022.
The FBI obviously needs a lot of housecleaning, but the key point to remember is that the ground zero of the weaponization has always been in the Department of Justice where political appointees have profoundly corrupted the system.
