 ICYMI: FOX NEWS HIGHLIGHTS AFL’S FOIA ON BIDEN DOJ FOR SILENCING PARENTS, DOJ DENIED THE REQUEST

Fighting back for US!

WASHINGTON, DC – ICYMI – Fox News published a profile highlighting the Department of Justice’s denial to expedite our FOIA request for information on Attorney General Garland’s now infamous October 4 memo targeting America’s public school parents. The department claimed it was forced to block public disclosure because the Biden political appointee running the department’s Office of Public Affairs lawlessly decreed that the weaponization of federal law enforcement against parents protesting critical race theory, gender ideology, and irrational mask mandates in public schools is not a matter of widespread media or public interest.

FOX NEWS: America First Legal request for expedited FOIA on DOJ targeting school board ‘violence’ denied

The Department of Justice denied a request by America First Legal for expedited processing of a Freedom of Information Act request seeking information from the DOJ on its October memo that launched an effort to combat an “increase” in “threats of violence” against school officials.

On one hand, the Department of Justice believes vast national security powers must be arrayed against parents who object to Critical Race Theory — triggering a massive national scandal,” America First Legal President and former senior adviser to former President Donald Trump Stephen Miller told Fox News.

“On the other hand, when confronted with AFL’s crucial oversight request, the Department now pretends this issue is not a matter of ‘widespread media interest.’ The only consistency here is that DOJ is grossly abusing its authority to promote CRT and punish American parents.”

The controversy spurred America First Legal to submit an expedited request seeking information from the DOJ, hoping to uncover the department’s motivation for the effort and if it had coordinated with potential political allies of the administration, such as the National School Boards Association.

But that request was denied by the DOJ and other divisions within the department, including the criminal division, Executive Office for United States Attorneys and the Office of Legal Counsel. Among the reasons cited for denying the expedited request, the DOJ argued that the issue is “not a matter of widespread media interest.”

America First Legal now plans to appeal the decision, noting that a failure to expedite the request could result in months of delays that would prevent the public from gaining access to critical information and “cripple the debate over the issue.”
