Report: Leftists opening door for Jan. 6 prisoners to sue feds

Leftists in Congress are working hard, perhaps without realizing the implications, on a plan that would allow the Jan. 6 prisoners to sue the federal government.

A report in Just the News explains Democrats Hank Johnson of Georgia and Jamie Raskin of Maryland have proposed the Bivens Act, “which would allow citizens to recover damages for constitutional violations committed against them by federal law enforcement officials.”

The bill would change federal law which already allows lawsuits against state and local officials to add federal officials as possible defendants in lawsuits over violations of civil and constitutional rights.

The FBI, Justice Department, Transportation Security Administration, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and federal prison officials all are included in the list of law-enforcement entities that would be held accountable under the legislation. – READ MORE
