Yesterday, the Justice Department issued a response letter to House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler concerning his threats and demands about any potential Ukraine investigations.
Calling out “news reports” and members of the House for “significantly distorting” the information, the letter announced that that DOJ has chosen U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Pennsylvania Scott Brady, and U.S. Attorney Richard Donoghue for the Eastern District of New York to oversee matters that could “potentially relate” to matters involving Ukraine.
The ‘matters’ involve the previous administration’s corruption and quid pro quos, designed to protect high ranking democrats from exposure.
“As you know, the Department typically does not provide information relating to ongoing matters,” Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd wrote. “However, the Department is aware of news reports and public comments from Members of Congress that have significantly distorted the public’s understanding of the Department’s handling of such cases.”
“The Deputy Attorney General’s efforts to coordinate matters potentially related to Ukraine, and to provide for the receipt of relevant information, does not circumvent the Department’s established channels,” Boyd added.

“Whether or not you are in league with Mr. Giuliani and his associates, DOJ guidelines, and regulations exist to protect you and the Department from even the appearance of a conflict of interest or any impropriety,” Nadler wrote last week.
Boyd attempted to shoot down the allegations that Barr and Giuliani were coordinating on Ukraine in Tuesday’s letter.
“As Attorney General Barr has repeatedly affirmed, he has not discussed matters relating to Ukraine with Rudolph Giuliani,” he said.
In fact, many people argue that the attacks on William Barr have increased, thanks to Barr showing weakness within the swamp. His continued praise of Rod Rosenstein and others involved in the illegal political coup carried out against President Trump make him look like a man-in-the-middle, once determined to protect the swarms of rank, deep state controllers, while simultaneously trying to actually do his job—rooting out corruption.
