These documents, obtained in one of our FOIA lawsuits against the U.S. Attorney’s Office for DC (USADC), pertain to Washington, DC’s Lewis List and Lewis Committee. Maintained by USADC, the Lewis List (DC’s Brady list) is a list of DC police officers and federal agents found (by the police department and the DOJ, via USADC’s Lewis Committee) to have engaged in behaviors so egregious that information about these officers’ misdeeds is constitutionally required to be disclosed to defendants if these officers are to testify in court. The DOJ continues to fight with nearly everything at its disposal to avoid complying with our FOIA request and our FOIA lawsuit for more documents about the Lewis List and Lewis Committee. Property of the People believes that of course the public needs access to the identities of cops so bad that even the DOJ knows they can’t be allowed to testify in court. Perhaps even more important, however, is access to information about how the Lewis List operates. Crucially, we need to know what information gets put on the list, and what information from the list actually makes its way to defendants. One of the documents in this release sheds light on exactly this question. The document that constitutes the final three pages of this release appears to be guidance from USADC to trial prosecutors about when to disclose information from the list to defendants. Disturbingly, much of the time, the guidance appears to be, “Don’t.”

Property of the People obtained these documents as part of our FOIA lawsuit against the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and other intelligence agencies for records on Antifa. Consistently throughout this release, DHS and other federal and regional intelligence entities grossly exaggerate supposed threats posed by Antifa and understate threats posed by the far-right. As illustrated in the ROCIC “Special Research Report” included in this release, US intelligence has absurdly rebranded fascists as anti-anti-fascists. And, in an especially egregious case of ‘bothsidesism,’ they also now declare genocidal fascists and the progressive activists who oppose them to literally be on the same page.

FBI “Guide” distributed by the Bureau at a counterterrorism training for local law enforcement in 2017. In an especially egregious case of “bothsidesism,” this document reveals the FBI to be training local law enforcement that the pro-choice movement represents a violent terrorist threat in ways akin to the extreme anti-abortion movement.
