Missouri GOP Sen. Josh Hawley on Thursday claimed the St. Louis Circuit Attorneys Office is improperly targeting the couple who wielded guns at protesters in their gated community last month, and requested the Justice Department open an investigation into the case.
In a letter to Attorney General Bill Barr, Hawley called for a federal civil rights probe into St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardners investigation into the McCloskey family for using firearms to defend themselves and their property against protesters.
This is an unacceptable abuse of power and threat to the Second Amendment and I urge you to consider a federal civil rights investigation into the St. Louis Circuit Attorneys Office to determine whether this investigation and impending prosecution violates this familys constitutional rights, Hawley wrote to Barr on Thursday.

Barr will get right on that next year.
I will get assigned to either Huber of Durham.
Wrong path Haw, call Schmitt !
... threatening their lives and property.
Now we are Talking!!~
The Department of Justice does not seem to be able to investigate, indict or prosecute any Democrat politician regardless of their crime. If they were serious they would investigate and indict the elected public officials who order the police to stand down when thugs are openly violating the most basic civil rights guarenteed by the Constitution. People in St.Louis and anywhere the Democrat marxists control local law enforcement, if they must stay, ought to be armed.
A number of people here have asked this question, but I’ll raise it again: Has anyone heard a word from the NRA on this?
I haven’t heard/seen anything, from NRA, on this.
I have heard about possible Indictment, but so far nothing there.
0 would’ve not only had his DOJ investigating, by now, but his IRS and other agencies would also have been unleashed.
Not condoning that...just comparing the timeliness of, or ANY action, between the two.
Do I want agencies weaponized, against the citizenry? NO!!
Just wondering where the fires are, under the feet of our DOJ. As others have said...maybe it’s all happening, behind the scenes.
Yes! About time somebody stood up to the Marxist bullies.
The NRA is keeping its champagne dry.
“Hawley seeks DOJ probe of St. Louis case on couple wielding guns at protesters”
DOJ/FBI too busy doing nothing.
If he can fit it into his tight heavy caseload of prosecuting the DC deep swampers and the Clinton's. (/sarc>
He and Linda Graham are after them, I kid you not!
“”0 wouldve not only had his DOJ investigating, by now, but his IRS and other agencies would also have been unleashed.””
I don’t understand. Did you mean that for sarcasm or were you serious? I assume you were referring to obozo???? If so, why do you think he would have gone the distance for the couple in MO and against that circuit DA? THE MO AG already had his say about the poor performance of that person so she has a history that warrants an investigation.
There's a lamp post with her name on it, otherwise.
