Garland blocks DOJ employees from Congress as whistleblowers proliferate

Apparently, the attorney general wants you to contact your bosses before complaining about them.

According to the Washington Times:

Attorney General Merrick Garland has issued a memo blocking Justice Department employees from communicating with members of Congress in the wake of stunning whistleblower disclosures regarding the FBI probe into Hunter Biden’s business affairs.

Mr. Garland wrote that all communication with Congress must be conducted through the department’s office of legislative affairs.

The policy is “to protect our criminal and civil law enforcement decisions, and our legal judgment from partisans or other inappropriate influences, whether real or perceived or indirect,” he said in the memo, sent late Tuesday.

He stressed that the new policies “are not intended to conflict with or limit whistleblower protections” and that “Congress may carry out its legislative oversight functions.”

Kurt Siuzdak, a former FBI agent and a lawyer who represents bureau whistleblowers, said the memo is targeting employees who want to speak out against misconduct.

  1. On a side and potentially troubling note, joe biden’s official schedule says he will be in the area where I live (Philadelphia) and make an address to the nation at 8 PM (EST). The White House note states as follows:

    “8 PM: The President delivers a primetime speech on the continued battle for the Soul of the Nation – Independence National Historical Park, Philadelphia
    Open Press”

    That’s the only item on the schedule other than slow joe receiving his “daily briefing”
    God help us.
