DOJ whistleblower admits to seeking job with House Democrats during Trump impeachment
Fox News ^ | June 24 2020 | Thomas Barrabi

Rep. Doug Collins, R-Ga., had a testy exchange Wednesday with a Justice Department whistleblower who admitted during a House Judiciary Committee hearing that he sought to work House Democrats during the Trump impeachment proceedings.

John Elias, a senior career official in the Justice Department’s antitrust division, is one of two whistleblowers who testified before the Democrat-led committee on alleged politically-motivated overreach by Attorney General William Barr and other appointees. During his testimony, Elias accused his supervisors of improperly investigating mergers involving cannabis companies because of a “personal dislike of the industry.”

Collins questioned Elias on his own political background, asking the official if he considered himself to be nonpartisan at work. When Elias responded that he did, Collins asked him if he had ever sought to work with Democratic leaders on the House Judiciary Committee.

I saw Elias respond to Collins and Elias was not too happy at being caught out. Another DC type looking to make his bones.

"During his testimony, Elias accused his supervisors of improperly investigating mergers involving cannabis companies because of a 'personal dislike of the industry.'"

That's what the anti-police riots are about, too, along with the majority of the rioters being white. They don't want to get busted. They're paranoid. They want the drugs to flow unimpeded and want to intimidate others from disagreeing with them about drug abuse.
