In today's dose of "How dare you!",

our AG says "You're damaging our democracy when you criticize my agency, let alone try to do anything about us!"

Ignoring the usual Democrat 'our democracy!' stuff, let's see...
"Judicial Watch announced today it received 54 pages of records from the Department of Justice in a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit which show the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Office of Congressional Affairs (OCA) provided a Democrat staffer with information on FBI whistleblowers who detailed the bureau’s targeting of political opponents and retaliation for their testifying at a May 18, 2023, hearing of the House Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government.

A May 23, 2023, email from Damon Marx, senior counsel in the office of New York Democrat Rep. Dan Goldman, shows that the FBI provided documents apparently pertaining to the whistleblowers that were “very helpful” to Goldman."
No, nothing political about that, not at all.

Then we have
"The memos show that agents for the FBI’s Security Division asked at least three witnesses in spring 2022 whether the employee, whose name and job title was redacted from the memos, had been known to “vocalize support for President Trump” or “vocalize objections to Covid-19 vaccination.” Agents ascertained from at least one witness that the worker, in fact, had declined to get the coronavirus inoculation.

The latter questions about the vaccine were asked in spring 2022, a few months after the U.S. Supreme Court had struck down vaccine mandates in corporate workplaces and a separate federal court had issued an injunction on federal employee vaccine mandates.

The agents also asked witnesses whether the FBI worker had “attended the Richmond Lobby Day event” in January 2021, a rally for supporters of the Second Amendment in Virginia. The agents’ notes referred to the colleague they were vetting as a “gun nut” but who in engaged in “no promotion of violence.”

Hey, Garland, know what would help?  If you weren't so politicized while you're yelling about being called a politicized agency.

He's so pissed off for not getting on the SC, he's taking it out on the other side. Small little man. I'll be glad when he's gone.

Democracy is not the answer in a republic, it is the problem. Their enemies must be and remain silent of their democracy is to remain.

I did the Pledge Of Allegiance today, the word "democracy" is not in it... The word "Republic" is.
