The DOJ is completely compromised by partisanship at this point. That was the conclusion drawn by multiple RedState writers yesterday, who opined about AG Merrick Garland’s announced lawsuit against Georgia for their recent election reform law.

Heck, even general claims by the media that Georgia’s law was “voter suppression” are clearly opinion and not actually based in fact. The DOJ apparently bought them hook, line, and sinker, though, as their lawsuit makes wild claims about black people being denied equal ballot access — when that’s clearly not true in regards to Georgia’s reform law or their system in general.

But, this is bigger than this one lawsuit. It’s a window into how partisan the DOJ has truly become. They are looking to be left-wing activists in every
