Biden’s DOJ Asks for More Than $34 Million to Continue Jan. 6 Investigation

The Biden administration’s Department of Justice has asked Congress for more than $34 million in additional funding to finance its investigation of the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol incursion, according to NBC News.
The DOJ pleaded for that funding in its 2023 budget request, saying U.S. attorneys’ offices would have to cut budgets to pay for Jan. 6 prosecutions otherwise, the outlet reported.

The department’s investigation already has resulted in more than 870 arrests related to the Jan. 6 incursion.

In July, an official told NBC News the DOJ lacked “the manpower” to keep the investigation going as quickly as possible.

Democratic House Appropriations Committee Chairwoman Rosa DeLauro did not say whether the DOJ’s request for more money would be part of planned government funding legislation with a Dec. 16 effective deadline.

“There are lots of requests,” she said, according to NBC News.

“We’re taking a look at all of them and seeing what makes it and seeing what doesn’t make it,” the Connecticut congresswoman said.

Attorney General Merrick Garland said in July that it would be “nice” if Congress provided more resources, but he expressed “every confidence” in DOJ prosecutors and agents’ dedication to the investigation, according to the outlet.

    Then cut their budget! Maybe they will think twice, the next time that they want to railroad someone.

    Has not this farce of an investigation….this Inquisition…not cost too much already and made the US system of justice look like a true travesty of justice? Besides being asinine political theater and trampling many parts of our Constitution, what has the committee accomplished? It is well past time to commit this horror show of a kangaroo court to the junk pile from which it sprung.

    Time to end the partisan clown show. Paid for by tax payers. Time to end the endless spending for corrupt people trying to keep their corruption and power that they have used to line their pockets while giving away our nation and its resources to our most dangerous enemies. Which includes operatives through the southern border or other means while the border patrols are distracted.
