When I was in the military, we would have long periods of time where we didn’t have some great big operation that had to take place, so we would be given busy work.
We would be given a closet that for example, might take a normal person an hour to clean, and told to somehow make it last for six hours.
That seemingly is what the government is doing right now. The DOJ is spending your money on an effort, if you can believe this, investigate itself…
The Justice Department’s internal watchdog said Friday it will investigate how the DOJ and its agencies prepared for and responded to last week’s riots at the U.S. Capitol.
The investigation by the inspector general’s office will examine whether the information was shared by the Justice Department to other law enforcement agencies about the potential for violence.
The inspector general said it “also will assess whether there are any weaknesses in DOJ protocols, policies, or procedures that adversely affected the ability of DOJ or its components to prepare effectively for and respond to the events at the U.S. Capitol on January 6.”
Federal prosecutors charged a Texas man with tweeting a call to assassinate U.S. Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez during the January 6 attack on the Capitol. The man allegedly tweeted multiple times from inside the Capitol including one where he wrote, “Assassinate AOC.”
A criminal complaint released by the U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia alleges that Dallas, Texas, resident Garret Miller illegally entered the U.S. Capitol on January 6. The complaint further alleges that Miller tweeted a threat to assassinate Rep. Ocasio-Cortez in a Twitter response to a tweet from the representative.
The attack on the Capitol occurred as both chambers of Congress met separately to debate a challenge to the Electoral College vote that would eventually declare Joe Biden to be the president-elect. As the two bodies met in their respective chambers, a large crowd gathered outside the Capitol and forced their way into the building.
