DOJ asks Congress for $34million in more funding to continue January 6 probe

The Justice Department is quietly begging Congress for $34 million to fund the Jan. 6 inquisition into Capitol Hill rioters and to continue going after former President Trump just before midterm elections are set to take place.

The request for funding is likely to come to the forefront in the House in December according to the Daily Mail. But if Republicans sweep the midterm elections in November, potentially retaking both the House and the Senate, approval of such a move is highly unlikely.

The investigation into those who entered the Capitol Building or even stood outside of it seems to be never-ending. Thousands of people stormed the building and so far, Democrats have had 870 of them arrested.

But the hunger to persecute more of those who protested that day is strong among leftists as Democrats sit in judgment, seeking authoritarian punishment. That hunger will never be slaked unless they are able to bring down former President Trump who reportedly had nothing to do with the riot itself that day.

“There are lots of requests,” House Appropriations Chair Rosa DeLauro (D-CT) told NBC News in an interview concerning the DOJ’s request for the extra funding. “We’re taking a look at all of them and seeing what makes it and seeing what doesn’t make it.”

The Department of Justice has crowed that their heavy-handed investigation into Jan. 6 is “the most wide-ranging” in its history.

They have written to Congress, detailing how the funding is “critically needed” to continue their witch hunt. Unbelievably, according to MSNBC, some Republicans are receptive to the idea.

Rep. Tom Cole (R-OK), a senior GOP appropriator who sought a debate on the 2020 election on Jan. 6, is one of those open to forking over the funding.

“Those people ought to be prosecuted to the full extent of the law,” he said, according to Newsmax. “I don’t have any problem giving the Justice Department the resources it needs to do that. I don’t have any problem spending extra money to make sure that anybody that broke into this building is brought to justice.”

“The cases are unprecedented in scale and is expected to be among the most complex investigations prosecuted by the Department of Justice,” the Justice Department wrote to the legislative branch, begging for money to keep the riot in front of Americans for as long as possible.

If they can’t get the funding, it would force US Attorney’s Offices across the nation to take a big bite out of their budgets so they can keep hounding people. They claim it would keep them from prosecuting other important cases in their locales.

The US Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia has led the charge against protesters along with 93 federal prosecutors’ offices across the country.

Hundreds of additional rioters have been identified by leftist snitches online. The Department of Justice is still making its list and checking it twice.

Many of those arrested have now been sentenced and the number of new arrests is dwindling. The DOJ is desperate to give relevancy to their work so they will have something to do apparently. Since the beginning of the year, they have been slapping cuffs on approximately four people a week over the riot, according to the Daily Mail.

Congress has until December 16 to decide on funding for the hunt to continue. At least ten Republicans would have to sign off on the funding for it to pass the House. Again, that is not likely to happen since it is almost a certainty the GOP will retake the House in November.

Despite the midterm elections, Attorney General Merrick Garland and Deputy Attorney General Lisa Monaco are asserting that the prosecutions of rioters will go forward even if US Attorneys’ offices take on the cases.

“Of course, we’d like more resources, and if Congress wants to give that to us, that would be very nice,” Garland remarked in July according to the Daily Mail. “But we have people — prosecutors and agents — from all over the country working on this matter, and I have every confidence in their ability, their professionalism, their dedication to this task.”
