West Virginia AG Presses Merrick Garland On Whether DOJ Colluded In Alvin Bragg's Hush Money Prosecution Of Trump - 'The American People Have A Right To Know'

In a fiery letter sent on Monday, West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey (R-WV) pressed United States Attorney General Merrick Garland, asking for information that would be essential in determining whether the Department of Justice colluded in the efforts to selectively prosecute presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald J. Trump in jurisdictions across our country. 

In coordination with the letter, the West Virginia attorney general filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request, in which he asked for specific evidence that the Department of Justice "may have colluded with state prosecutors involved in former President Trump's plethora of cases." Morrisey also asks for specific details, including "information on meetings attended by a DOJ employee and any of the prosecutors' pursuing President Trump for illusory violations of state law.'" 

As Newsmax previously reported, the impetus for the filing was former acting assistant Attorney General Michael Colangelo's involvement in the prosecution of Trump's New York hush-money case. Colangelo was the third highest-ranking person in the Department of Justice from January of 2021 to his eventual hiring by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg (D) as the lead prosecutor in the hush money case, so there is reason for the American people to be skeptical of Colangelo's involvement in such a momentous trial.

Additionally, Newsmax adds that "Colangelo, who had several roles in the Obama administration, reportedly was a paid consultant for the Democratic National Committee in 2018." The case was not limited to New York, however. Indeed, the West Virginia AG asked for details about the prosecution of Donald J. Trump in Fulton Country, Georgia, as well—information that may prove very valuable in the months ahead. 

As such, Morrisey pressed the Biden Attorney General in his letter, arguing that "the American people have a right to know what is going on, especially when it comes to whether DOJ is using taxpayer monies and the coercive lever of the federal government to manipulate elections." West Virginia's top lawyer continued, adding, "This strategy against a former President and current political candidate seems to be an unprecedented weaponization of the prosecutorial system for political ends."

Morrisey concluded his letter by saying, "In the end, one way or another, we should all know whether the Department of Justice is working by proxy to convict President Trump in Georgia and New York. If not, say so. If yes, tell the truth and do it fast. The future of our democracy may depend on it." These are powerful words, and we the people demand transparency as the 2024 Presidential elections inch ever closer.
