(Joshua Paladino, Headline USA) Under Attorney General Merrick Garland, the Justice Department colluded with Leftist and Democrat activists to stifle Georgia‘s efforts to maintain election integrity, Just the News reported.

Now President Joe Biden’s Justice Department has claimed that legal privileges prevent Americans from seeing the full scope of the partnership between the federal government and activist organizations.

Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger obtained some redacted communications between the DOJ and partisan organizations through a Freedom of Information Act request.

Raffensperger said the redactions prove that the Justice Department has acted as a political operative.

“In effect, what they are doing is invoking client-attorney privilege,” he said.

“And its clients, apparently, are these liberal activist groups, instead of being the American people. The Department of Justice works for all of us. I believed that this case was politically motivated, and now we have proof.”

The emails and memos show that Justice Department employees worked with officials and lawyers at the NAACP, the ACLU, the Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights Under Law and the Southern Poverty Law Center.

“Thanks for reaching out. We are available on Tuesday at 4 p.m. to discuss those topics,” DOJ trial attorney Jasmyn Richardson wrote Leah Aden of the NAACP Legal Defense Fund on Aug. 6, 2021.

That email led to several meetings between DOJ and NAACP officials about Georgia’s election integrity law.

The Justice Department redacted all information about the contents of the meetings based on “deliberative process privilege” and “attorney work product secrecy.”

Justice Department employees also communicated with members of the Perkins Coie law firm, which represented the Hillary for America 2016 presidential campaign and the Democratic National Committee.

In a separate case, Special Counsel John Durham¬†seeks documents from Perkins Coie related to his criminal trial of Michael Sussmann, who lied to the FBI in 2016 about then-candidate Donald Trump’s role in communicating with the Kremlin through Alfa Bank.
