It seems that the Federal Judge has been asking the DC Jail Warden to supply documents relating to the medical treatment (or not) of one of the January 6 “rioters.” The judge has now ruled the DC Jail Warden in contempt of Federal Court and demanded an investigation of how those defendants who are confined to the DC jail have been treated for the past ten months. Judge Royce C. Lamberth, who was appointed by President Ronald Reagan, has asked the Justice Department for a Civil Rights investigation to be instituted.
Now, I wonder how the Biden DOJ will treat that request. Might they stall, and stall some more, and come up with dozens of reasons why an investigation might not be a good idea? Might they, essentially, refuse to investigate themselves? If so, what can that Federal Judge do? Ricochet lawyers?Published in
