Daily Signal Exclusive: DOJ's Kristen Clarke Hit With Criminal Referral, Ethics Complaints for 'Perjury,' 'False Statements'

Mary Margaret Olohan : Jun 24, 2024  The Daily Signal

"The American people deserve a Civil Rights Division at the US Department of Justice led with honesty and integrity. Since taking over the Civil Rights Division, you have weaponized the Department of Justice by wielding the FACE Act against pro-life Americans in an unprecedented manner—even while standing idly by as churches and pro-life pregnancy centers are vandalized and Jewish students are unable to attend class on college campuses."

[] FIRST ON THE DAILY SIGNAL—The Justice Department's Kristen Clarke, assistant attorney general for civil rights, will be hit with three ethics complaints and a criminal referral Monday, The Daily Signal has learned. (Screengrab image: via YouTube)

Article III Project is filing both the ethics complaints and criminal referral, which calls upon Attorney General Merrick Garland to open a criminal probe into Clarke on the grounds that she "knowingly and willfully" made "materially false statements" and that she committed "perjury."

"There is ample evidence to support this referral for false statements and perjury," Mike Davis, founder and president of Article III Project, said in the criminal referral. Davis' organization is focused on defending constitutionalist judges, opposing radical judicial nominees, and pushing back on "radical assaults on judicial independence" such as court-packing.

The filings follow an April 30 report from The Daily Signal revealing for the first time that Clarke hid her arrest for a domestic violence incident and its subsequent expungement from investigators when she was awaiting Senate confirmation to her high-ranking Justice Department post.

Her ex-husband, Reginald Avery, has told The Daily Signal that Clarke attacked him with a knife, slicing his finger to the bone, while they were married in 2006. That record was later expunged, The Daily Signal confirmed.

Asked by Sen. Tom Cotton, R-AR, during her confirmation, "Since becoming a legal adult, have you ever been arrested for or accused of committing a violent crime against any person?" she responded, "No," according to a 66-page document she submitted under oath to "Questions for the Record" from senators.

Clarke has not responded to requests for comment from The Daily Signal, though the DOJ previously acknowledged receipt of these requests. Following The Daily Signal's initial report, Clarke told CNN she hid the arrest during her Senate confirmation but then alleged she was the victim of domestic violence at the hands of her ex-husband.

Avery told The Daily Signal he did not abuse his ex-wife... Subscribe for free to Breaking Christian News here
