Joe Biden’s top lawmen have faced much criticism for operating like outlaws.
But one of them just caught on a legal case he’s the other side of, for once.
And now this top Biden administration official needs to clear his calendar and preserve his records, after the justice system turned against him.
The Department of Justice under Merrick Garland has raised several alarm bells, even among liberals.
Garland got hit with a lawsuit after one infuriating raid
Left-wing journalists balked when the FBI raided the home of investigative journalist James O’Keefe and seized his computers and phones.
Garland sicced the FBI on parents who protested at school board meetings.
He even sent his goons after pro-life advocates who performed sidewalk counseling outside of abortion clinics.
Mark Houck, a Catholic pro-life advocate, had his home raided by the FBI and was arrested after getting into an altercation with a pro-abortion activist.
Houck’s son was harassed by the leftist activist, and Houck pushed the man away from his son.
Local law enforcement dismissed the matter, but the feds came swooping in.
Roughly 20 armed FBI agents entered Houck’s home and arrested him when he was there with his children.
Houck faced up to 11 years in prison and a $350,000 fine, for allegedly violating the FACE (Freedom to Access Clinic Entrances) Act but was acquitted.
Now Houck is suing the DOJ.
American justice system is not the AG’s perverse plaything, Houck attorney declares
Houck attorney Shawn Carney, President of the pro-life organization 40 Days for Life, said in a statement, “This lawsuit will send a strong message to the DOJ that the United States of America does not belong to [Attorney General] Merrick Garland or the FBI; it belongs to all Americans, despite our many disagreements on different issues…We all believe that we should have the right to free speech and be protected from unlawful infringement by our own government.”
Biden and the Democrats are hellbent on criminalizing dissent by pursuing their political opponents with outlandish charges.
Carney added, “Mark and his wife have valid and critical claims against the government that raided their house and pointed guns at them and their screaming children. Mark, his wife, and their seven children have been devastated by this horrific event, which should never have happened if not for the bigotry of our compromised DOJ.”
The lawsuit tragically stated Houck’s wife Ryan-Marie suffered three miscarriages, due to the stress and trauma of the raid.
The lawsuit added that Mrs. Houck’s “children continually come to her crying and suffering from nightmares. They slept in bed with her and her husband for the first month after the arrest, and they continue to ask to sleep in their parents’ bed. The children are easily triggered whenever the situation is brought up or unannounced guests arrive at the property, and she spends a significant amount of time counseling and comforting them.”
The Houcks are seeking a combined $4.35 million for malicious prosecution and emotional damage.
Garland should be ashamed that the DOJ not only raided the Houcks’ home, but allowed the absurd prosecution to move forward.
