Yet another action that will feed into the belief by conservatives that the government’s institutions under President Joe Biden have become highly politicized took place on Thursday.
The Department of Justice has officially announced its decision not to pursue charges against a former George Soros-backed U.S. Attorney who had previously faced allegations of lying under oath in order to conceal her efforts to leverage her position for influencing a local election in Boston.
Per The Messenger, special counsel Jack Smith from the Department of Justice (DOJ), who is currently investigating former President Donald Trump for potential criminal charges, made the determination last week that any criminal misconduct allegedly committed by former U.S. Attorney Rachael Rollins will not be pursued, following her resignation on Friday.

The Office of Special Counsel and Office of the Inspector General had conducted an extensive investigation on Rollins, revealing instances where the progressive prosecutor allegedly violated ethics rules by leaking confidential documents to the media for political purposes, received complimentary tickets to a Boston Celtics game, and attended a Democratic National Committee fundraiser featuring First Lady Jill Biden.
Throughout the course of their investigation, the Office of Special Counsel (OSC) and the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) conducted multiple interviews with Rollins to obtain her account regarding a series of text messages exchanged between her, reporters from local newspapers, and another progressive Democrat seeking to succeed her as the Suffolk County District Attorney.

Following a comprehensive analysis, both agencies determined that Rollins provided false information while under oath regarding her involvement in transmitting internal investigatory documents to journalists at the Boston Globe and Boston Herald.
Both newspapers had a significant interest in covering the Suffolk County Democratic primary.
In their findings, the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) accused Rollins of breaching several Standards of Ethical Conduct for Employees of the Executive Branch. These alleged violations included the contravention of Section 2635.702, which pertains to the misuse of public office for personal gain, and Section 2635.703, which concerns the improper use of nonpublic information.
First elected District Attorney of Suffolk County in Boston, Rollins garnered significant financial backing from liberal billionaire George Soros.
Soros has made substantial commitments to fund district attorney races with the aim of influencing the criminal justice system. Rollins campaigned on a platform that involved implementing changes to Boston’s justice system, aligning it with Soros’s vision, which included her decision to refrain from prosecuting many criminal offenses, including some that are violent in nature, under the phony guise that doing so is racist.
