Welcome, US Attorney Liu!

Now that the new US Attorney for DC has been confirmed and sworn-in, we'd like to bring a few things to her attention...


Between November 2017 and October 2018, 194 people will be tried for excessive, abusive, politically-motivated charges.

Jessie Liu has the power to change that.

Hi! My name is ______.

I am calling to demand that you drop ALL pending charges against the Inauguration protesters.

I was horrified to learn that over 200 people were improperly arrested, mistreated, and threatened with excessive felony charges.

Over the last 9 months, you have pushed every limit - making these prosecutions as disruptive as possible, and the investigations surrounding this case as intrusive as possible. Most defendants will wait more than a year for their day in court - under the constant threat of decades in prison.

You have used massively inflated charges to coerce plea deals, and then used the fact of those guilty pleas in court as a justification for pursuing the cases.

You have used gag orders to protect the government from public accountability, and failed in your duty to share evidence with the defense.

Prosecutors have the choice of when or how to bring charges, and the responsibility to use it wisely. Your office has abused that power to punish, repress, and intimidate. Your office has wasted public resources, and harmed dozens of the people you're obligated to serve.

Start out this new US Attorney's term on the side of justice - drop the charges. NOW.

Hi! My name is ______.

I am calling to demand that you investigate the US Attorney for DC's decision to prosecute over two hundred people in connection with inauguration day protests.

I was horrified to learn that over 200 people were improperly arrested, mistreated, and threatened with excessive felony charges.

Over the last 9 months, the US Attorney's Office in DC has pushed every limit - making these prosecutions as disruptive as possible, and the investigations surrounding this case as intrusive as possible. Most defendants will wait more than a year for their day in court - under the constant threat of decades in prison.

Prosecutors have used massively inflated charges to coerce plea deals, and then used the fact of those guilty pleas in court as a justification for pursuing the cases.

They have asked for gag orders to protect law enforcement from public accountability, and balked at sharing evidence with the defense.

Prosecutors have the choice of when or how to bring charges, and the responsibility to use that discretion wisely. In these cases, the US Attorney's Office has has abused its power to punish, repress, and intimidate. They have wasted public resources, and harmed dozens of the people you're obligated to serve.

As the { - Inspector General's Office -- or-- Office of Professional Responsibility - } it is your responsibility to make sure that Department of Justice officials act ethically and professionally. With that in mind, please investigate these prosecutions, and urge Jessie Liu to drop the charges. NOW.
