“Our state’s top law enforcement official has sued President Donald Trump more times than any other state AG, but refuses to lift a finger to root out corruption here in Massachusetts,” Lyons said. “This one was teed up right in front of her.”
Lyons pointed to Healey’s previous defense of Newton District Court Judge Shelley Joseph, currently facing federal charges for helping an illegal immigrant facing drug charges evade federal immigration agents, and Salem Superior Court Judge Timothy Feeley, who in 2018 made headlines for granting probation to a convicted longtime heroin dealer facing deportation. Healey called the federal charges filed against Joseph a “radical and politically-motivated attack on our state,”
and defended Feeley’s decision as “apolitical.”
“Sadly, AG Healey treats her office as the legal arm of the Democratic Party at the expense of Massachusetts residents,” Lyons said. “This is the latest instance where AG Healey is clearly making a statement that when it comes to her fellow Democrats, the rule of law doesn’t matter.
“Meanwhile, Attorney General Healey’s statement earlier this month regarding the looting, destruction, and violence of American cities was very telling. Our commonwealth’s chief law enforcement officer took a look at the leftist mobs torching businesses and private property, shrugged, and told us “that’s how forests grow.”
