Give up the Ghosting: DOJ Ignores States’ FOIA Request

(Family Research Council) The Biden administration is so good at ignoring problems in hopes they will disappear that it could get adopted into a family of ostriches. But Indiana Attorney General Todd Rokita (R) is undeterred. Along with 13 other state attorneys general, he filed a lawsuit against the administration for ignoring Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests filed last fall. “I didn’t use anything that any citizen or person in this country couldn’t use,” he informed “Washington Watch” viewers. “Ignoring me and thirteen other states, now for five months, thinking that we’re just going to get bored and go away… is not going to be the final result.”

Politicians sometimes file petty lawsuits and litigate non-issues for years, but Rokita’s suit is not of that sort. No, he’s going after the Department of Justice for colluding with the National School Boards Association (NSBA) to invent a pretext for investigating parents as domestic terrorists. By this point, even the DOJ has to realize they conjured up a pretext no sturdier than a ladder painted on a wall, but they’re refusing to budge.  (Read More)
