Another Push for U.S. Law Enforcement Whistleblowers
Coalition proposes to President Trump, Attorney General Barr, and two state governors that U.S. Law Enforcement Whistleblowers (LEWs) have special rights to thorough government investigations. Cases of former Tennessee and Ohio LEWs are emphasized.

In an April 8, 2019 letter to President Trump, Mr. Barr, and Governors Lee as well as DeWine, the sixteen NGOs under the banner of Opt IN USA, harken to assertions "that our Department of Justice (DOJ) has long turned a proverbial blind eye, even when U.S. law enforcement whistleblowers (LEWs) advise it of retaliation against them through atypical if not outright specious criminal prosecutions."
A 2016 article chronicling Lipton's and Morris' plight and referenced by the coalition's letter is titled "How To Get Away With Career Murder: The Unconstitutional Blueprint for Systematically Purging Whistleblowers from U.S. Law Enforcement". In light of that article, the coalition proposes that "all U.S. government agencies are obliged to suspend their deference and activate whatever oversight they have in regard to prosecutors who are at least negligent in addressing the prospect that probable cause was fabricated to precipitate retaliation through criminal prosecution of one or more LEWs (and perhaps any U.S. sworn public officer) for their work-related whistleblowing."
Crenshaw-Logal addresses the rights of Americans to thorough government investigations in a recently published article titled "When Guys in Dark Suits Want to Ask You A Few Questions". Former deputy sheriffs Lipton and Morris are focal points of that article as well. The featured coalition letter to President Trump and other U.S. officials is linked at the end of the article.
