The Department of Justice is one of the most corrupt organizations we have.
This now weaponized bureaucracy has taken up the political crusade of bringing the ‘insurrectionists’ to justice, and that appears to involve them taking liberties with regard to the law.
Instead of admitting the mistake and simply letting Denney go for violating his rights, the DOJ wants to drop the current set of charges, but charge Denney again in a future case…
So they’re admitting the mistake, but at the same time they’re telling us that the law essentially does not matter. What matters to these pencil pushers is the technicality and archaic nature of the law—not the pursuit of justice itself.
Here’s what we currently know:

The Justice Department admitted today that they illegally held January 6 defendant Lucas Denney in jail for 85 days without an indictment in violation of the Speedy Trial Act, which requires indictment within 30 days of arrest.https://t.co/nlfp3uWJJQ

In a highly unusual court filing, lawyers from the U.S. Attorney’s Office said the handling of the case against Texas resident Lucas Denney violated his rights under the Speedy Trial Act. Prosecutors said errors and oversights led to Denney sitting in a Virginia jail for weeks last month as he awaited his first court appearance in Washington, D.C.
“There was nothing intentional or nefarious about the delay. It was an isolated incident, unlikely to happen again, and the time frame —while undoubtedly regrettable — is nevertheless not significantly egregious to warrant dismissal with prejudice,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Jennifer Rozzoni wrote.
Lucas Denney said he would plead guilty to one felony count of assaulting officers with a pole. https://t.co/jb2lxxDfUD

Jan6 Defendant Being Illegally Held.
You don't see this very often in federal court, but one of the Jan 6 Defendants I think is actually being held illegally. I will explain. The Defendant is Lucas Denney. His case number in DC is: 21mj686. /1

Western Journal continued by mentioning the judge’s reaction to the violation of Denney’s rights:
“I am utterly at a loss. … I see a person’s rights that have been trampled,” said the judge, who noted he himself is a former federal prosecutor, according to Politico.
“You have been lost for months,” Faruqui told Denney during that hearing. “There’s no excuse to treat a human being like that. … There is no circumstance under which any person should be forgotten.”
