(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) Attorney General Merrick Garland’s partisan Department of Justice is attempting to keep President Joe Biden’s dubious “voter access” policy for the 2022 midterms a secret, Breitbart reported.
Biden signed Executive Order 14019 in March 2021, promising to help certain types of people have easier access to voting.
Among those benefitting are federal prisoners, government employees at all levels, those who do not speak English and those who wish to vote via mail-in ballot.
The federal government’s formal get-out-the-vote campaigns are to be promoted largely via leftist partner organizations, fueling suspicions that a sinister plot may be afoot like that deployed by a cabal of activists and political operatives to steal the 2020 presidential election.
According to Tarren Bragdon, president and CEO of the Foundation for Government Accountability, the order has exposed “what is frighteningly obvious—that under the guise of ‘access’ the Biden administration has attempted to federalize elections.”
Even as the 2022 midterms approach, the DOJ and the White House are refusing to provide details as to the implementation of Biden’s order for federal agencies to intervene in the running of elections by the states—despite having been ordered by a court to produce details.
Instead of publishing their plans, the DOJ simply used a loophole to withhold the “strategic plan” for Executive Order 14019.
Instead, the department held a July 2021 “listening session” with activists from outside groups, including 10 from the American Civil Liberties Union, five from the Campaign Legal Center, three from Demos, three from the Southern Poverty Law Center, five from the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights and two from Black Lives Matter, according to Washington Examiner columnist Byron York.
“The list would not reassure anyone hoping that the Justice Department is working in a scrupulously nonpartisan way,” York wrote. “But of course, we don’t really know what the department is doing because the administration is keeping it a secret.”
