Translating From The Latin, The DOJ Replies to Gym Jordan: Piss-off, Dopey.

Coach of the Year, Gym Jordan (R-OH)

Merrick Garland sent Gym Jordan the eff-off letter we were all expecting:

In a letter to House Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan responding to a flurry of document requests, the DOJ said that “any oversight requests must be weighed against the department’s interests in protecting the integrity of its work.”

The letter added: “The Department’s mission to independently and impartially uphold the rule of law requires us to maintain the integrity of our investigations, prosecutions, and civil actions, and to avoid even a perception that our efforts are influenced by anything but the law and the facts.”

And just to put an extra eff you into the matter, the DOJ also said,

“As President Reagan explained in his 1982 directive on responding to congressional requests for information, the ‘tradition of accommodation’ should be ‘the primary means of resolving conflicts between the Branches,’” the letter said.

And that’s gonna leave a mark.

Gym Jordan squeaked back,

Boy, that’s a wicked burn. It’s gonna be a long two years, innit?

    DOJ to Gym Jordan, quoting Bo “Bandit” Darville from Smokey and the Bandit: “Do the letters ‘F.O.’ mean anything to you?”

    Gym had his response ready before the DOJ response arrived, didn’t he. Heck, he had his response ready before he sent the bait request.
