Trump-era DOJ Official Sounds Alarm Over Plans to ‘Prosecute’ Social Media Users for ‘Disinformation’

President Joe Biden’s Department of Justice is becoming more and more political as the months go by.

First, the DOJ announced it would target parents concerned by schools’ implementation of Critical Race Theory in classrooms and radical school boards. Now, the DOJ is launching a new “political operation” according to a former DOJ spokesperson under President Donald Trump, Alexei Woltornist.

Woltornist says the recent letter from the American Medical Association to Merrick Garland calls for investigations on social media users spreading “disinformation” about child sex changes is part of the Biden DOJ’s “political operation.”

Earlier this month, Journalist Christopher Rufo exposed the letter requesting the DOJ to “take swift action to investigate and prosecute all organizations, individuals, and entities” that have spread “misleading information targeting individual physicians and hospitals” that perform irreversible sex-change surgeries for minors.

The Daily Caller reports:

The letter, authored by the American Medical Association, the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Children’s Hospital Association, specifically states that a “few high-profile users on social media” are responsible for spreading the “disinformation” about child sex-change surgeries, which have resulted in “bomb threats.”

“The behavior from the AMA is straight from the Soviet playbook. The legal system should be used to protect the rule of law, not to punish political enemies,” Woltornist continued.

When asked what the DOJ should do about the letter, Woltornist said, the “DOJ should be focused on restoring their credibility,” but that the perception that it’s a “political operation” can’t be reversed “with simple spin or messaging.”

The DOJ so far has “declined any additional comment” on if the DOJ plans to carry out the investigations on the “social media users” or anyone else mentioned in the letter
