If former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin would have been acquitted on all counts by the jury, President Joe Biden’s Justice Department would arrested him at the courthouse, according to sources.
Article by Art Moore from WND.
The Minneapolis Star Tribune reported Justice Department officials had been quietly gathering evidence for months to indict Chauvin on federal police-brutality charges in the death of George Floyd.
The DOJ feared, however, that any attention drawn to the probe could disrupt the state’s case, the paper said.
According to the plan, the Minnesota U.S. Attorney General’s Office would have charged Chauvin by criminal complaint, which is “a quicker alternative for a federal charge that doesn’t require a grand jury,” the Star Tribune said.
The jury, however, found Chauvin guilty on all three counts, second degree intentional murder, third degree murder and manslaughter.
Federal prosecutors could still indict Chauvin on civil rights violations.
The news follows Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison acknowledging Sunday that prosecutors had no evidence that race played a role in the death of George Floyd, as WND reported

“We don’t have any evidence that Derek Chauvin factored in George Floyd’s race as he did what he did,” Ellison said.
‘Systemic racism’ in state dominated by Democrats?
Nevertheless, as author WND columnist and author Jack Cashill noted, President Biden made up his mind, even before the jury did, that it was “a murder in the full light of day.”
Biden said while the jury was still deliberating that the case “ripped the blinders off for the whole world to see the systemic racism the vice president just referred to — the systemic racism that is a stain on our nation’s soul.”
But Cashill said Biden should ask himself a fundamental question: “How exactly did a city with a liberal mayor and a black police chief in a state with a liberal governor and a black liberal attorney general breed a crew of racist killers, three of whom are non-white?”
Cashill carefully went through undisputed facts in the case that conflict with the verdict.
“In the final analysis,” however, he wrote, it mattered little what any witness said.
Cashill cited the alternate juror in the trial who told local media, “I did not want to go through rioting and destruction again, and I was concerned about people coming to my house if they were not happy with the verdict.”
Remarkably, he pointed out, in its coverage of the juror’s interview, the New York Times did not mention her fears.

“Legitimately frightened and deeply propagandized, the jurors found Chauvin guilty on all counts with unseemly speed,” Cashill wrote. “In their haste, they called to mind Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes’s caution about Leo Frank’s Atlanta trial a century earlier, ‘Mob law does not become due process of law by securing the assent of a terrorized jury.'”
Cashill contended that to “justify $2 billion of damages and dozens of lives lost, the Democrat-media complex needed a cause as epic as the damage.”
“The State and its allies had to overcharge all four of the officers. They had to turn Chauvin from a veteran cop, who may or may not have made an error of judgment in the final moments of Floyd’s life, into a villain,” he wrote. “They had to turn the career criminal George Floyd into a secular saint. And, finally, they had to elevate an unintentional death into a racist murder.
Cashill concluded: “If there was “stain on a nation’s soul, Joe, it was the trial.”
‘The knee on the neck of justice’
As WND reported, while the death of George Floyd has become the impetus for all kinds of measures to address “systemic racism” in America, prosecutors never accused Chauvin of racial animus.
Biden is urging the Senate to pass the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act, saying after the verdict that he wants to “sign it into law as quickly as possible.” The law would eliminate qualified immunity for police officers; ban chokeholds and no-knock warrants; end “racial and religious profiling”; and establish a national database of police misconduct.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., tweeted, “George Floyd should still be alive – and we must keep fighting to dismantle systemic racism and fundamentally transform our nation’s justice system.”
But Rep. Byron Donalds, R-Fla., said in a Fox News interview it was “disgusting” that Democrats “were poised to use the verdict to springboard to the thing they really want, which is passing their agenda.”
The Biden Justice Department has announced it has opened a civil investigation of “systemic” issues in the Minneapolis Police Department.
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
