Outspoken Rep. Lauren Boebert of Colorado is among a group of House Republicans demanding the Justice Department explain what lawmakers say is different treatment of the Jan. 6 Capitol Hill rioters compared with those who attacked federal buildings during Black Lives Matter protests last year in the wake of George Floyd’s death in Minneapolis.
In a letter, Boebert and 10 other Republican representatives asked US Attorney General Merrick Garland to address what they called an ‘inconsistent application of the law with respect to rioters across the country.’
The article goes on to state the following:
The letter claims Oregon prosecutors signed off on at least a dozen ‘deferred resolution agreements in federal felony cases’ from clashes in last year’s BLM protests, while some Capitol rioters have been held in solitary confinement.
The report notes that out of 96 people charged in the violent riots in Portland, prosecutors have dropped charges on 47.
“The foundation of our criminal justice system requires that all defendants are treated equally before the law, but the Biden regime is not living up to this solemn obligation,” Boebert said.
“Reports are circulating that the Biden regime has held January 6th rioters in solitary confinement, while at the same time, they are letting BLM rioters that attacked federal buildings off with just a few hours of community service,” Boebert also wrote.
“This is not an equal standard of justice. I condemn all forms of political violence, and all political violence must be prosecuted fairly,” she added.
Other congress members signing on to Boebert’s letter were Reps. Andy Biggs of Arizona, Andrew Clyde of Georgia, Jeff Duncan of South Carolina, Bob Good of Virginia, Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia, Louie Gohmert of Texas, Jody Hice of Georgia, Thomas Massie of Kentucky, Ralph Norman of South Carolina and W. Gregory Steube of Florida.
