Biden’s DOJ Asks Judge To Toss Suit Against Trump and Barr For Lafayette Square Clearing

Sharing is caring!

Joe Biden’s Department of Justice dealt liberals a huge blow when department lawyers defended former President Donald Trump and former Attorney General Bill Barr’s forced clearing of Lafayette Square during last year’s protests.

The Justice Department asked a judge to toss a lawsuit lodged against Trump, Barr, and the D.C. Metropolitan Police Department by the ACLU for the devastatingly simple reason that presidential security is of “paramount” government interest. DOJ argued that Trump and other U.S. officials are immune from civil lawsuits over police actions taken to protect a president and to secure his movements.

The left did not take the news well that Biden’s DOJ is backing Trump and Barr on this as they thought the photo-op of Trump holding a Bible in front of the historic St. John’s Church obscene and demanded action. So you know this one hurts. The Washington, D.C., chapters of the ACLU and Black Lives Matter sued the Trump administration over the use of chemical agents and rubber bullets to clear the crowd.
