Biden Department of Justice Won’t Reveal Plans to Intervene in 2022 Midterms

With less than two months to go before the November midterms, the Biden Administration is refusing to release its plan to interfere in the 2022 midterms, even though a document exists at the Department of Justice (DOJ) detailing such a plan.

As reported by Breitbart, the 15-page document allegedly lays out a strategy for a “voter access” policy that will expand some of the questionable election practices that were implemented in the 2020 election. The administration reportedly plans to coordinate this rollout with several far-left groups.

After taking power, Biden signed an executive order in March of 202: Executive Order 14019, titled “Promoting Access to Voting.” The order attempts to federalize all national elections rather than let the states continue to administer election procedures, as ordered by the Constitution. Among other measures, the order calls for using federal agencies to promote voter registration, providing voter registration and vote-by-mail applications, providing multilingual services to voters, and using “approved, nonpartisan third-party organizations” to register voters at federal agencies.

Last year, the watchdog group Foundation for Government Accountability (FGA) filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for any and all documents at the DOJ related to this plan. The agency refused to provide the requested materials, using a loophole in the FOIA law to withhold the actual “strategic plan” for Executive Order 14019.

Following the 2020 election, multiple Republicans called out the widespread irregularities that many believe switched the election results away from President Donald Trump and in favor of Joe Biden. Several states have since passed strict election integrity laws, cracking down on such practices as mail-in voting, ballot drop-boxes, and ballot-harvesting. Democrats have responded by expanding such practices in their states, and Congressional Democrats attempted to pass a law that would federalize all elections, but the legislation ultimately did not make it through the evenly-divided Senate.
