(ConservativeHub.com) – On Tuesday, August 1, GOP presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy stated that he would be filing a lawsuit against the Department of Justice (DOJ). He also revealed he would be seeking information regarding the legal woes of former President Donald Trump, according to a recent report from The Hill.
Ramaswamy’s campaign shared a statement in which he argued that he was filing the lawsuit so that more transparency and accountability could exist. He then questioned what instruction President Joe Biden and his associates had given Attorney General Merrick Garland and what instruction Special Counsel Jack Smith had received.
Last week, a grand jury in Washington, D.C., formally charged Trump with a total of four counts, all of which are connected to January 6, 2021, and the previous presidential election. Trump was arraigned on these charged on August 3 in court, where he pleaded not guilty to all of them. Currently, the former president is facing dozens of charges related to multiple cases, including his connection to Stormy Daniels and his handling of classified documents.
Ramaswamy, who is facing Trump in the 2024 GOP presidential primary race, claimed that the indictment filed against Trump was selective in the facts it presented and that the federal police would not stop until they made sure that Trump was eliminated.
A previous FOIA request by Ramaswamy’s campaign in June was also looking for information on the indictment against Trump which related to his mishandling of classified documents after leaving the White House.
