Referring civil rights violations against January 6 defendants to the U.S. attorney general is a joke.
I mean, come on:
“It’s clear to me the civil rights of the defendant were violated by the D.C. Department of Corrections,” Lamberth said. “I don’t know if it’s because he’s a January 6 defendant or not.”
More importantly, the contempt order also directed the Clerk of the D.C. district court to transmit the order to U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland for the Justice Department to conduct an “appropriate inquiry into potential civil rights violations of January 6 defendants, as exemplified by this case.”
If violations are occurring, it’s with the tacit (if not explicit) approval of the Biden administration and its “parents are terrorists” AG. Asking them to review these cases is a request for transparent wallpaper.
