Today, Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene is introduceing Articles of Impeachment against U.S. Attorney Matthew Graves.
Matthew Graves was appointed to be the U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia on July 26, 2021 and he assumed office on November 5, 2021.
During his time in office, U.S. Attorney Graves has totally subverted the justice system of the United States and facilitated the explosion of violent crime in Washington D.C. by refusing to prosecute violent crimes.
In fact, Graves has refused to prosecute 67% of arrests in the District of Columbia during his tenure. In response, D.C. Police Chief Robert Congee has said "We need to keep violent people in jail. When people talk about what we're gonna do different, or what we should do different, what we need to do different, that's the thing that we need to do different."
Graves has prosecuted hundreds of individuals who participated in a political protest and has sought lengthy pretrial detention, even for nonviolent defendants. His cruel and unusual tactics have driven innocent people, arrested on phony charges, to suicide, including Matthew Perna.
Graves is systematically criminalizing political dissent at the behest of his handlers in the White House. By focusing so much effort on the persecution of political prisoners, Graves has diminished the manpower needed to fight crime not just in DC, but all over the country. DOJ attorneys have been transferred to DC just to help Graves wage his war against political opponents.
His wife, Fatima Goss Graves, is the CEO of the National Women’s Legal Center. She is using her 100-million-dollar business to run a pressure campaign against Justice Clarence Thomas. Matthew Graves and his wife are clearly partisan hacks with no respect for the justice system or the rule of law.
With a total dereliction of duty as U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia, Matthew Graves must be impeached.
