Californians are upset. They need their state opened.
Have you or anyone you know been arrested for peacefully protesting at the state Capitol or for defying the stay-at-home order?
Rep. Tom McClintock wants to help because he believes this is potentially violating your constitutional rights.
Today at 2:00 p.m., he will be joining the John and Ken show to offer assistance to anyone who needs help challenging the actions of state and local officials. He believes he can make a case for you if you believed they've violated constituents’ constitutional rights or civil liberties.
“Our office does not provide legal assistance,” the Republican congressman told the SacBee, “but I intend to assist any constituents in filing complaints and once filed, will follow up with the Department of Justice to assure they are being investigated.”
McClintock started offering this help after Attorney General William Barr issued a memo to federal prosecutors to be “on the lookout for state and local directives that could be violating the constitutional rights and civil liberties of individual citizens.”
The attorney general even compared state's stay-at-home orders to house arrest.
McClintock has asked all Californians read Barr's memo and to reach out with him if they feel like what he was saying describes their situations.
