Joe Biden’s Justice Department will not prosecute an assistant U.S. attorney who the department has acknowledged exposed his genitals in public during a date with a civilian, who the official sexually assaulted.
A report by the Office of Inspector General (IG) gave little insight into the department’s reasoning not to pursue charges.
DOJ won’t prosecute pervy official
The investigation found that the official’s “genitals were exposed in public, and that the AUSA forced the civilian’s hand to touch the AUSA’s genitals, in violation of state law and federal regulations governing off-duty conduct.”
The report also found that the prosecutor “lacked candor in discussing this incident with the OIG.”
The accusation was lodged by the Executive Office for the United States Attorneys (EOUSA).
Criminal prosecution “was declined,” the report added, but the IG did establish a “finding of misconduct” based on a “preponderance of the evidence.”
The IG said it filed a report with the EOUSA and the Department’s Office of Professional Responsibility for “appropriate action.”
The IG also announced Monday that it had found misconduct by another assistant U.S. attorney who tried to pull rank during a traffic stop for drunk driving.
The belligerent official’s misbehavior included “ignoring instructions, cursing at officers, and kicking the door of the patrol vehicle.” The report was unclear about whether the official was prosecuted.
Meanwhile, the DOJ has prioritized harassing former President Donald Trump and his supporters. The DOJ recently sent subpoenas to 40 different Trump aides who played roles in challenging the legitimacy of the 2020 election.
Biden and his allies have insisted the contest was fair despite mounting evidence that the FBI interfered to censor a corruption scandal involving Biden and his family.
Fox News host Tucker Carlson said Monday that his show obtained a subpoena asking about “any claim that the vice president and/or the president of the Senate had the authority to reject or to choose not to count presidential electors,” which suggests the Biden DOJ is trying to criminalize political speech.
