Federal Judge Brutally Rebukes DOJ For Taking Part In Trump’s Political Game: ‘A Disturbing Mess’
The Daily Beast reported on Friday that a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit filed by Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) revealed that Justice Department attorneys were met with “mounting frustration and skepticism” from a federal judge regarding documents related to the investigation of former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe.
Federal judge Reggie Barnett Walton called Trump’s involvement in the McCabe investigation was “disturbing,” a “mess,” and reflected a “banana republic.”
“I think it’s very unfortunate,” Judge Walton told prosecutors as the case stalled in late September. “And I think as a government and as a society we’re going to pay a price at some point for this.”
According to CREW spokesperson Jordan Libowitz, the delayed released of the documents show that the government was “trying to cover up the fact that they were stringing this [lawsuit] along while looking for a reason to indict McCabe.”
