The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York has requested that Devon Archer report to prison following a decision by the Second Circuit Court of Appeals to uphold his one-year sentence.

His attorney, Matthew Schwartz, responded that Archer was considering additional appeals and had concerns about an “error” in the sentencing process.

On Saturday, the Attorney’s Office asked trial Judge Ronnie Abrams to schedule a date for Archer’s reporting following a decision by the Second Circuit Court of Appeals to uphold his one-year sentence.

Archer was found guilty of two felony charges in his involvement in a scheme to defraud the Wakpamni Lake Community Corporation of the Oglala Sioux Tribe.

Despite this opposition, the DOJ continues to push for Archer’s surrender date to be set, as stated in the letter, “The Government disagrees with counsel’s position that a report date should not be set, and respectfully requests permission to respond to any arguments made by the defendant.”

 

Assistant US Attorney Negar Tekeei wrote in a one-page letter requesting Judge Ronnie Abrams set a date and time for Archer’s reporting, however, no decision has been made yet due to timing issues related to Monday’s appearance before Congress.

In a strong statement, Schwartz put a lid on speculations surrounding the DOJ’s request.

“We are aware of speculation that the Department of Justice’s weekend request to have Mr. Archer report to prison is an attempt by the Biden administration to intimidate him in advance of his meeting with the House Oversight Committee on Monday,” Schwartz said in a statement.

“To be clear, Mr. Archer does not agree with that speculation. In any case, Mr. Archer will do what he has planned to do all along, which is to show up on Monday and to honestly answer the questions that are put to him by the Congressional investigators.”

This is yet another example of government interference in highly politicized proceedings – and it appears go against basic principles of fairness and justice given its proximity with a major political event involving possible ties between Joe Biden and Hunter Biden’s Ukraine business when Joe Biden was Vice President – raising questions about potential bias within current government institutions toward certain political parties or ideologies ahead of November’s election.
