(READ) Watchdog suing Dept. of Justice for records re: Durham Investigation

The watchdog group Judicial Watch has filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the Department of Justice (DOJ) for records of communication between Special Counsel John Durham and Attorney General Merrick Garland.

The lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court after the DOJ failed to lawfully respond to an Aug. 23, 2021, FOIA request.

Sens. Ron Johnson (R-Wisconsin) and Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) raised concerns last year about whether the Justice Department was in potential conflict with the Durham investigation because a senior Justice official, Susan Hennessey, had previously made statements attacking the Durham Investigation. 

The senators said in December 2020, Hennessey “expressed a clear partisan bias against the Special Counsel’s investigation, referring to one of her tweets.

Durham has made abundantly clear that in a year and a half, he hasn’t come up with anything. I guess this kind of partisan silliness has become characteristic of Barr’s legacy, but unclear to me why Durham would want to go along with it.

Judicial Watch is seeking the following:

  • All records of communication, including emails and text messages, between Special Counsel John Durham and Attorney General Merrick Garland.
  • All budget records related to the operations of the office of Special Counsel John Durham. 

Durham’s investigation began in May 2019, and he was officially designated as Special Counsel in October 2020. 

“It shouldn’t take a federal lawsuit to get answers to simple requests for information about Garland’s communications with Durham and basic budget documents about the Durham Special Counsel operation,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.

  1. Justice delayed is justice denied. Merrick Garland is a zealot ideologue that has utter contempt for the rule of law and our U.S. constitution. He is corrupt and compromised. The communist/NWO elitists know their time is running out and their efforts to inflict pain & suffering ends next November. Their favorite modus-operendi of deny/deflect/distract is ironically being thwarted by the son with the laptop from hell. No irony lost here……

    1. But,will the republicans, upon gaining power, once again do absolutely nothing, but support the efforts of the democrats to introduce more evil ?

        Yes, they will do nothing. Just as the Repubs have done time and time again once back as the majority. They are, for the most part, useless.
