WASHINGTON—House Committee on Oversight and Accountability Chairman James Comer (R-Ky.) issued the following statement on reports issued by the Department of Justice (DOJ) Office of the Inspector General and U.S. Office of Special Counsel (OSC) concluding that Biden-nominated U.S. Attorney Rachael Rollins egregiously violated the Hatch Act, willfully made false statements under oath, and disclosed non-public DOJ information to media:
“U.S. Attorney Rachael Rollins is a walking, talking ethical nightmare. The Department of Justice and U.S. Office of Special Counsel have each determined that Biden-nominated U.S. Attorney Rollins has breached public trust in extraordinary fashion. While in her position, Rollins leaked sensitive DOJ information to influence an election, illegally attended a Democrat fundraiser, and deliberately misled investigators under oath. It’s now clear Rollins used her position of power to be a political operative and seemingly transformed her taxpayer-funded office into an arm of the Democratic Party. Her resignation can’t come soon enough. Whether it’s the Biden family’s influence peddling or the actions of a U.S. Attorney, this White House continues to turn a blind eye to ethical standards. Americans deserve meaningful oversight, and the Oversight Committee will continue to hold officials accountable at the highest levels of our government.”
