Biden’s DOJ Tried to Seize Pennsylvania GOP Lawmaker’s Texts: Report

Listen to the article
 

t

he Justice Department (DOJ) has sought to access text messages on Republican Pennsylvania Rep. Scott Perry’s cell phone as part of a 2020 election interference probe, having confiscated it in August, CNN reported

FBI agents seized Perry’s phone Aug. 9, he confirmed to the Daily Caller News Foundation that day, ostensibly as part of a federal criminal investigation into the Jan. 6 Capitol riots and efforts to hinder the transfer of power to President Joe Biden, CNN reported. The DOJ’s approach to Perry’s phone seizure involved using one warrant to image the phone and pursuing a data access warrant in confidential proceedings, sources familiar with the investigation and public filings indicated, according to CNN.

Perry sued the DOJ soon after his phone had been seized before requesting a pause on the public-facing lawsuit, and the dispute became sealed. He had attempted to stop investigators from accessing his phone data, arguing that portions were personal or fell under Constitutional Speech and Debate Clause protection, his lawsuit said, according to CNN.

Perry contacted then-White House chief of staff Mark Meadows, DOJ official Jeffrey Clark and others who furthered election fraud claims in 2020, thinking election security had been compromised and seeking to preserve voting machines following the election, the outlet reported. He texted Meadows on Nov. 10, 2020 instructions to preserve specific ballot scanning machines used at polling places that experienced a glitch, saying the instructions came from a cyber forensic team, according to Talking Points Memo.
