As Federal Judiciary Shifts Right, Leftists Rising to Power in Local Prosecutorial Positions

An extensive report from Breitbart has revealed how numerous far-left activists, in response to the federal judiciary being filled with conservatives under President Donald Trump, have been rising to fill local prosecutorial positions instead.

While President Trump has confirmed over 200 judges at the federal level, about 40 leftists have been taken office in such local positions as district attorney in the same timespan.

These include Parisa Dehghani-Tafti, a prosecutor in Arlington County, Virginia, who had the support of far-left globalist billionaire George Soros; Rachael Rollins, the district attorney for Suffolk County, Massachusetts; and Marc Gonzalez in Corpus Christi, Texas. Perhaps the most infamous is Chesa Boudin, the district attorney of San Francisco, whose parents were domestic terrorists with the far-left terror group Weather Underground.

Such leftists have received widespread criticism for turning law enforcement jobs into activist positions, with some, such as Rollins, openly campaigning on prosecuting and convicting fewer criminals. President Trump has criticized such individuals for being lenient towards “many criminals who pose a severe threat to public safety and community wellbeing.” Attorney General William Barr has referred to them, and others, as “rogue prosecutors.”
