DOJ Conceals Biden’s Election-meddling Schemes

The Justice Department is hesitant to respond to a federal court order to relinquish data related to President Biden’s March 2021 executive order to establish plans for federal meddling in state election management. 

On Thursday evening, the institution submitted a motion for summary judgment with the Fort Myers Branch of the U.S. Middle District Court of Florida.

This was to cover up messaging documents pertaining to Executive Order 14019. The Executive Order compelled all federal agencies to “consider ways to broaden citizens’ chances to register to vote, gather information about, and take part in the voting process.”

“Summary judgment” is a judicial ruling based on claims and evidence without a full trial. 

Redacted and Omitted 

The effort to protect the information came after a federal judge ordered the department to turn up documents relating to Biden’s directive to the Foundation for Government Accountability (FGA). 

The group previously challenged the DOJ in April after its officials failed to answer FGA’s July 2021 open records requests.

The DOJ sent over some data to FGA last month, but they were highly censored and lacked the agency’s 15-page “strategic plan” for complying with Biden’s executive order. 

The DOJ’s Civil Rights Division (CRT) provided a substantially specific declaration explaining its search for records responsive to FGA’s FOIA request.

They claim materials omitted or obscured by the DOJ are shielded under the “presidential communications privilege.”

The agency argues releasing the material sought by FGA would lead to “public confusion.”

The Strategic Plan contains several suggested measures that the public may construe as ‘future pledges, prior actions, or provisions now in existence.’ 

The agency argued DOJ lawfully withheld the whole Strategic Plan. 

Obvious Coverup

FGA President and CEO Tarren Bragdon blasted the DOJ’s coverup, saying it’s “obvious” Biden’s presidency is using the DOJ to bury documents and run down the clock before the November elections. 

Bragdon said the DOJ hid vital information about its government-funded ‘get out the vote’ activities with unconvincing explanations.

He stated the FGA would battle to expose these documents and unearth the Biden administration’s mass voter registration operation.

Biden’s executive order is unethical, illegal, and a prescription for chaos, uncertainty, and fraud, says Federalist Editor-in-Chief Mollie Hemingway. 

Hemingway said EO 14019 ignores the Constitution’s election clause. Congress has a lower involvement in this area. She said H.R. 1 and other Democrat Party attempts to control elections have failed. Congress hasn’t approved this. 

As the 2022 midterms near, the Biden DOJ has been increasing its efforts to influence elections under the pretense of fighting voter “intimidation.”

Jane Young, the DOJ’s district attorney in New Hampshire, selected Assistant U.S. Attorney Seth R. Aframe to lead her office’s operations for the November elections. 

The Justice Department has a role in preventing and combating prejudice/intimidation at the polls, threats of violence against elected officials and electoral officials, and vote rigging, according to a press release.
