WASHINGTON, D.C. – In case you missed it, Rep. Burgess Owens (UT-04) denounced President Biden’s weaponization of the Department of Justice during his Monday night telephone town hall with thousands of constituents across Utah’s Fourth District. Meanwhile in Washington, Democrats are fighting to bankroll 87,000 new IRS agents in an attempt to militarize the agency against Americans in all tax brackets. 

“Within 90 days of the November election, we are not supposed to have interference like this. Go back and look at Hillary Clinton, Hunter Biden, and the Russian hoax – just to name a few – and none of that has been investigated by the DOJ. No one has been held accountable. That is scary. It is egregious abuse of big government power. The American people deserve answers.”
