Ramaswamy Files FOIA Request for DOJ Communications w/ White House on Trump Indictment

'Every American deserves to know... '

(Mark Pellin, Headline USA) Already having vowed if elected president to pardon Donald Trump if necessary, Republican Vivek Ramaswamy on Monday filed a freedom of information request with the Justice Department demanding the release of all documented exchanges between the Biden White House, the DOJ and special counsel Jack Smith regarding what Ramaswamy called the unprecedented politically-weaponized indictment of the former president.

“The Department of Justice’s recent indictment of President Donald J. Trump raises grave concerns that DOJ is being politicized and weaponized against the political opponents of the sitting President of the United States,” the FOIA filed on behalf of Ramaswamy read. “The existence, timing, and content of the indictment all necessitate both this request and, one would hope, a completely open and forthright response.”

Trump is slated to appear in Miami Tuesday to be arraigned on the DOJ’s indictment that covers 37 counts related to alleged obstruction of justice and mishandling of classified documents that were found at his Florida Mar-a-Lago home.

Ramaswamy said the full extent of collaboration between Garland, Smith and other federal agents with the Biden White House in pursuing its targeting of Trump is vital to restore public confidence.

“Every American deserves to know. If the captured media fails to do its job, real leaders in this country need to step up and do it instead,” Ramaswamy tweeted.

“I’m running to win this election & it’d be easier for me if Trump were eliminated from running, but that is not the right answer for our nation.”

Ramaswamy’s criticism echoed comments he made over the weekend, when he obliterated mainstream media for carrying the Biden DOJ’s water and slanting its coverage of the Trump indictment.

“With due respect, I think it is shameful that I, as a competitor to president Trump in this race, have to ask questions that the media isn’t asking,” Ramaswamy told CNN’s Dana Bash, after she had claimed there was “no evidence” linking Biden to the Trump indictment.

That’s because mainstream media has turned a collectively biased and blind eye to pursuing any actual evidence, Ramaswamy said.

“Ask the question. Get to the bottom of what Biden told Garland and Garland told Jack Smith. If the same shoe fit the other foot you would not take their word at face value. Do not take their word now,” Ramaswamy warned.

“Get to the bottom of it. Let’s actually restore journalism in this country. That’s what’s actually missing, is getting to the truth.”

Deriding the Biden regime’s dual system of justice as a “federal administrative police state,” Ramaswamy said the media was failing to keep it in check.

“The job of the political media, if it has one job, is to hold the U.S. government accountable,” he said. “Instead … you’re seeing the media doing the bidding of the U.S. government.”
