Trump aide banned from Justice after trying to get case info

Source: AP


WASHINGTON (AP) — The official serving as President Donald Trump’s eyes and ears at the Justice Department has been banned from the building after trying to pressure staffers to give up sensitive information about election fraud and other matters she could relay to the White House, three people familiar with the matter tell The Associated Press.

Heidi Stirrup, an ally of top Trump adviser Stephen Miller, was quietly installed at the Justice Department as a White House liaison a few months ago. She was told within the last two weeks to vacate the building after top Justice officials learned of her efforts to collect insider information about ongoing cases and the department’s work on election fraud, the people said.

Stirrup is accused of approaching staffers in the department demanding they give her information about investigations, including election fraud matters, the people said. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to publicly discuss the matter.

The effort came as Trump continues to level baseless claims that he won the election and alleges without evidence that massive voting fraud was responsible for his defeat to President-elect Joe Biden.

I get it. Biden wants to be good cop. The country's problems are too great to be focused on seeking revenge on the Trump administartion (nevermind the country's problems are a direct result OF the Trump's administration's action or inaction).

But dammit, Biden needs black ops going on to root these Nazis OUT!!

All he needs to do is not get involved, one way or another. They need to go to jail if found guilty of the corruption we all know they are guilty of.

16. Its amazing to hear some people say that too much is going on to get involved in prosecuting

these criminals...and in the mean time the criminals are going non-stop trying to destroy everything in their path.

NO, they need to made accountable of their crimes, ALL OF THEM. I find that if they don't do it that it will be more harmful to the Democratic party and our Democracy, this is a no brainer, THEY MUST ALL BE INVESTIGATED AND THOSE FOUND GUILTY, and I suspect many if not all of them will be found guilty, MUST PAY WITH JAIL AND WHATEVER ELSE BECOMES APPLICABLE TO THEIR CRIMES.

Sorry for the UPPERCASES, it just boils my blood to hear "move forward" in so many ways.

22. Heidi acts lke a Nazi loyalist or Russian loyalist always standing besides a commander and demands..

..the party line be served in all instances. Germand and Russian generals hated these weasels as any infraction would be reported instantly. The party functionaries never did any fighting but cashiered lots fo competnet generals on both sides for stupid non-military reasons. This broad acts the same way, looking for faults in the system and its people.

I'm of the opinion that the election was rigged...by tRump and his cabal. They just didn't rig it enough to win. They're still in major denial because they can't figure out what happened to their maniacal plan. ETTD. No exceptions.

It seems trump and his goons have "quietly installed" people everywhere. It's going to be a big job to round up all of them and kick them out again. Thank goodness some of them are making it easy, but still.
