President Biden and his Leftist administration have weaponized the Department of Justice (DOJ) for their political purposes to an intolerable extreme. The incoming Republican-controlled House of Representatives should end this abuse by defunding the DOJ. The latest of many political atrocities by the DOJ was the rushed announcement of the appointment of a special prosecutor, with unlimited funding, to harass Donald Trump and his supporters. Defunding the Department of Justice is the only effective way to stop its insatiable political desire to remove Donald Trump from the 2024 campaign.
The naming of this special prosecutor, who was not even made available for the public announcement, was obviously rushed for political gain. Donald Trump had declared his candidacy for president merely 3 days earlier, as late returns from the midterm elections assured the GOP a majority in the House of Representatives.
Already there is Republican talk of defunding the special prosecutor himself, but this is not enough. DOJ would simply continue to bring abusive prosecutions through its regular staff of highly partisan attorneys, as the DOJ had already done in raiding Trump’s residence in Mar-a-Lago. The political wrongdoing by the DOJ has reached a crescendo and cannot be cured by the committee hearings that House Republicans are planning.
Don’t confuse a move to defund the DOJ with the leftist movement to defund the police. Trust of local law enforcement is built on the fact that law enforcement is actually local. We want agencies that live within the communities they police, that understand the unique dynamics of those communities, and are accountable to those communities for their actions. Obviously, we also want local law enforcement agencies that target the kinds of crime that harm local citizens. The DOJ does not fit any of these crucial criteria. The best way to rein in the Department of Justice is for Congress to cut their funding until they stop wasting taxpayer dollars going after their political opponents while turning a blind eye to real crimes like the drug trafficking and sex trafficking that flows across our southern border.
