Senator Hawley Asks DOJ to Open Civil Rights Investigation into St. Louis Circuit Attorney’s Office for Targeting McCloskeys

By

Opinion| Mo. Sen Josh Hawley has asked the DOJ to investigate Soros funded St Louis DA for violating the civil rights of the McCloskey family.

FOX 2 Now reported:

Senator Josh Hawley is calling for a federal civil rights investigation into St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner after claiming she is “targeting the McCloskey family for using firearms to defend themselves and their property against a mob of protesters”.

Hawley sent a letter to Attorney General William Barr Thursday morning accusing Gardner of abusing her power in handling the investigation.

“This is an unacceptable abuse of power and threat to the Second Amendment, and I urge you to consider a federal civil rights investigation into the St. Louis Circuit Attorney’s Office to determine whether this investigation and impending prosecution violates this family’s constitutional rights,” Hawley wrote.
