45th President Donald J. Trump issued a statement on Truth Social Tuesday wondering if there is “interference” occurring with “whistleblower laws” after it was reported that “Attorney General Merrick Garland just sent out a message to everyone at the Justice Department, ordering no one may contact Congress.”

The announcement comes amid multiple FBI Whistleblowers coming forward to lawmakers over concerns of bias in the bureau.

Mike Davis, a former Law Clerk for Justice Gorsuch and Founder and President, Article III Project (A3P) reported, “Attorney Garland Merrick Garland just sent out a message to everyone at the Justice Department, ordering no one may contact Congress. (My source: Congress.)”

“Why didn’t he order a similar gag on the inappropriate and illegal Justice Department leaks to the media? Coverup,” Davis added.

President Trump issued a statement shortly after on Truth Social, writing, “It has just been reported that Attorney General Merrick Garland has sent a notice to everyone at the Justice Department ordering that no one contact Congress—meaning, I assume, no Whistleblowers allowed!”

“The only reason for this must be that with the firing of the ‘Special Agent’ In Charge at the FBI, many within are calling political Representatives in disgust at what has happened to Law Enforcement Agencies in the United States of America. Is this interference with the Whistleblower laws?” he asked, referring to former FBI Washington Field Office Assistant Special Agent in Charge Tim Thibault was escorted out of the bureau on Friday, amid whistleblower allegations that he showed political bias in his handling of politically sensitive investigations.

Mr. Davis also included a link for whistleblowers to contact Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA):

Jason Foster, former chief investigative counsel at the Senate Judiciary for Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) weighed in on Twitter and said, “If true, that would violate 5 U.S.C. §7211 (the Lloyd-La Follette Act).”

Mr. Foster further wrote, “It would also make AG Garland’s salary no longer an unauthorized appropriation”.
