Marilyn Mosby Claims She Was ‘Targeted’ Ahead Of Fraud Case

Think there was a target on her back the whole time?

Civil rights organizations claim former Baltimore City State Attorney Marilyn Mosby was targeted by federal agencies before being charged with fraud and wants the government to pardon her. 

“The sad reality is, as Black women take their rightful places in positions of power, dark forces seek to tear down both their progress and that of our community.”

“They issued subpoenas to all of the black churches five months before my reelection not only to get me out of office but they’ve done this to demonize me and to vilify me and to break me – break me psychologically, break me professionally, break me spiritually, break me financially. I’ve lost everything.” 

The letter calls out the Department of Justice, under former President Donald Trump’s administration, of pushing a “meritless indictment” against the former prosecutor and accuses the Biden Administration of ignoring political motives behind what is described as a “malicious prosecution.” “We expect that political persecutions and malicious prosecutions pursued during the Trump Administration would not continue in the Biden Administration,” the letter read. 

While NAACP’s Senior Vice President of Global Policy and Impact Patrice Willoughby hopes for a quick response from Biden, there may be a waiting period. When asked about the letter, according to CBS News, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre alluded to the fact that she can’t comment on the president’s thoughts since she has yet to speak to him about it.

“I want to be really mindful here because that is obviously a Department of Justice process and I don’t want to be certainly be speaking to any individual pardon request, that is not something I can do,” Jean-Pierre said. 

“The Department of Justice employs a process that is thorough and deliberative when it comes to a process to review executive clemency petitions.”
