Today the Department of Justice announced that nearly 1,700 child predators were arrested in the two month duration of operation “Broken Heart”, resulting in 357 who were exploited being identified.
In total, the Internet Crimes Against Children “investigated more than 18,500 complaints of technology-facilitated crimes targeting children” between April and May, resulting in the nearly 1,700 arrests.
In the agency’s press release, Attorney General William Barr said that “The sexual abuse of children is repugnant, and it victimizes the most innocent and vulnerable of all,” and went on to say that “Over the span of just two months, our ICAC task forces investigated more than 18,000 complaints of internet-related abuse and helped arrest 1,700 alleged abusers.
“We must bring the full force of the law against sexual predators, and with the help of our Internet Crimes Against Children program, we will.” Barr added, “We are committed to bringing the defendants in these cases to justice and protecting every American child.”
The press release also notes that operation “Broken Hart” specifically “targeted suspects who: (1) produce, distribute, receive and possess child pornography; (2) engage in online enticement of children for sexual purposes; (3) engage in the sex trafficking of children; and (4) travel across state lines or to foreign countries and sexually abuse children.”
Just two weeks ago, the FBI announced that it had rescued over 200 exploited children in its own massive operation.
The FBI Atlanta Field Office released a statement confirming that, along with 27 other local, state, and federal law enforcement entities, that 231 missing children had been successfully located in the month of May during Operation Safe Summer.
“From May 1, 2019 to May 24, 2019, 231 missing and/or exploited children were located. The operation’s goal was to combat all forms of child exploitation and make our community safer for our children heading into the summer months. The end of OSS coincided with National Missing Children’s Day, May 25,” the release said.
The statement said that on average, one in seven missing children is a victim of sex trafficking.
The Attorney General on His Way Out?: Trump Mulls Firing Bill Barr, Advisers Trying to Dissuade Him
Trump is unhappy about more than just Barr’s recent voter fraud comments.
President Donald Trump is considering firing Attorney General William Barr, with the Washington Post reporting Wednesday evening that Trump “remained livid” at him.
On Tuesday Barr said that the Justice Department did not find evidence of “fraud on a scale that could have effected a different outcome in the election.”
An unnamed senior administration official told the Post that although Trump is upset about Barr’s comments, he’s also unhappy with Barr about other matters, such as his previous lack of action on the FBI’s investigation into the Trump campaign and his handling of John Durham.
The president is pressuring Barr to release the “Durham report,” which could implicate officials in using the investigation to target Trump for political reasons. Trump also sees Barr’s secret appointment of Durham to DOJ special counsel as a “stall tactic.”
In the wake of Election Day Attorney General Barr authorized federal prosecutors to “investigate substantial allegations” of voter fraud. But in his comments Tuesday, Barr claimed that “most claims of fraud are very particularized to a particular set of circumstances or actors or conduct.”
“They are not systemic allegations,” said Barr.
Trump may want to fire Barr, but several advisers are trying to persuade him not to, according to the unnamed senior official.
Either way, it’s tough to see how Barr remains attorney general for much longer. If Joe Biden pulls off the steal and gets inaugurated, he will certainly replace Barr with his own AG. And if Trump hangs on for his second and final term, he may very well want to clean house and start afresh.
