We already know the FBI worked with Twitter to squash free speech and cover up potential crimes.

But it turns out the feds are still at it, and this time they are covering up violent crimes.

That’s why Joe Biden’s DOJ is being sued for hiding documents about violent Leftist attacks on Pro-Life Americans.

The radical Left has always used violence as a tactic around the globe, and now it’s on the rise here in the United States.

Leak of Supreme Court draft set off a powder keg

It all started when someone (we may never find out who) leaked a draft of the Supreme Court’s decision on the Dobbs case, which eventually would overturn Roe v. Wade.

Since the leak went public, at least 83 Pro-Life pregnancy centers and organizations have been attacked and vandalized. 

And at least 141 Catholic Churches have been similarly targeted since the draft leaked.

These violent attacks only increased after the Court’s decision in the Dobbs case was released on June 24 last year.

Now the attacks have stepped up with Pro-Life students and activists being physically assaulted and threatened.  

On March 1, Attorney General Merrick Garland claimed the FBI and DOJ have committed their “full resources” to the investigation of these violent attacks, but so far the bureau has made only two arrests. 

This despite the fact most of the attacks have been by the pro-abortion terrorist group Jane’s Revenge, which has publicly taken “credit” for a large number of the attacks.

DOJ ignores a FOIA request

Now, according to the Daily Caller, conservative nonprofits The Heritage Foundation and Advancing American Freedom (AAF) are suing the Department of Justice to obtain documents concerning the federal law enforcement response (or lack thereof) to violent attacks on Pro-Life organizations, churches, and individuals.

The Heritage Foundation’s Oversight Project filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request on September 30 of last year asking for documents related to internal communication within the DOJ on the attacks. 

They also asked for all communication between the DOJ and the White House on the violence. 

But the DOJ has since been completely unresponsive, thus prompting the lawsuit by Heritage.

The complaint requests the court compel the DOJ “to conduct a search or searches reasonably calculated to uncover all records responsive to Plaintiffs’ FOIA request.” 

It also demands DOJ “to produce, within twenty days of the Court’s order, or by such other date as the court deems appropriate, and all non-exempt records responsive to Plaintiffs’ FOIA Request and indexes justifying the withholding of any responsive records withheld in whole or in part under claim of exemption.”

“Merrick Garland and his top officials at the DOJ clearly hold us in contempt,” said Mike Howell, a plaintiff in the case and the director of Heritage’s Oversight project.

“They refuse to prosecute those who violently attack Pro-Life organizations simply for existing and who attempt to coerce and intimidate Supreme Court justices into ruling the way the mob desires. Meanwhile, they send SWAT teams to the homes of Pro-Life Americans to arrest and prosecute them on trumped-up, phony charges,” Howell continued.

Howell was referring to last October’s raid of Mark Houck, a Pro-Life Catholic father.

In the pre-dawn raid at least 15 armed FBI agents stormed the Houck’s home over alleged FACE Act violations after Houck shoved an abortion clinic volunteer who was verbally assaulting his son. 

Houck was found not guilty of the charges in January, but the federal case highlighted what conservatives and Pro-Lifers say is evidence of a strong pro-abortion bias in Merrick Garland’s DOJ.

No wonder the DOJ refuses to release the documents over the violent attacks on Pro-Lifers, they have a lot to hide.
