DOJ Declines To Investigate Michigan Nursing Home Deaths Under Gretchen Whitmer

( )- In two stunning announcements this week, the Biden Justice Department said that it would not conduct a civil rights investigation into either New York Governor Andrew Cuomo or Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer for their nursing home policies during the COVID-19 pandemic. Nor would it open an investigation into the similar nursing home order in Pennsylvania.

In a letter to Governor Whitmer, Steven Rosenbaum, chief of the DOJ’s Special Litigation Section, wrote that based on a review of the information provided by the Governor’s office, the DOJ would not open a CRIPA investigation of any nursing home facilities in Michigan “at this time.”

CRIPA is the Civil Rights of Institutionalize Persons Act.

In August of last year, the DOJ announced that it was requesting all information from four Democrat-led states (New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Michigan) citing their policies requiring nursing homes to accept COVID-infected patients.

At the time, then-Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Rights Division Eric Dreiband said that protecting the rights of the most vulnerable members of society is “one of our country’s most important obligations.”

But that was before Biden’s people took over the DOJ. And now that they have, protecting Democrat governors is one of their most important obligations.

On Friday, the DOJ sent a letter to House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) letting him know that the agency would not be opening investigations into the nursing home policies in New York, Michigan or Pennsylvania. The investigation into New Jersey is currently ongoing.

Echoing the letter sent to Whitmer’s office, the DOJ letter to Scalise said that after reviewing the information, the DOJ decided not to open a CRIPA investigation into any nursing homes within New York, Pennsylvania, or Michigan “at this time.”

How many thousands of American seniors are dead today because these Democrat Governors forced COVID-positive patients into nursing homes?

And the Biden Justice Department doesn’t think it warrants an investigation?

Is it because the DOJ is far too busy investigating grannies who trespassed on the Capitol to care about grannies killed by these reckless governors?
