A federal prosecutor was arrested for obstructing police from administering a sobriety test to her boyfriend during a drunk-driving stop. Assistant U.S. Attorney Bianca Forde was hired by the Department of Justice in 2015.

Forde was riding in the passenger seat of a car being driven by her boyfriend at 12:15 a.m. in Manhattan on Nov. 30 when cops pulled them over for suspicion of drunk driving. His car has Virginia license plates.

Forde — who works in the criminal division of the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Washington, D.C. — ignored multiple police warnings to stay inside the car and jumped out of the vehicle in a belligerent manner, the New York Post reported.

Police said Forde, who appeared to be drunk, then started badgering and intimidating the police by falsely claiming that she didn’t have to listen to them because she’s an Assistant U.S. Attorney.

Authorities said Forde used “her prestigious job to intimidate officers.”

Prosecutors claimed that Bianca Forde told police: “You have no right to ask him to exit the vehicle. This is against the law. I don’t have to listen to you. I’m an attorney. I’m barred in New York, I practice here. I’m a US attorney. I’m his attorney. He doesn’t have to blow [on the breathalyzer test].”

The irony is that Forde’s boyfriend took the sobriety test, passed it, and was not arrested. However, Forde was arrested and charged with obstructing governmental administration, resisting arrest and failure to obey police officers.

A federal prosecutor told BizPac Review that the Department of Justice will likely reprimand Forde if it’s true that she used her position as an Assistant U.S. Attorney to intimidate police officers. DOJ attorneys are explicitly warned not to exploit their prestigious titles for personal reasons.

If Forde throws her weight around to the police, imagine what she does to lay people (like waiters and cashiers) when she doesn’t get her way.

It’s alarming that a federal prosecutor apparently has no respect for law enforcement. But that’s not surprising because disrespect of the police has become commonplace among today’s Left.

The Left’s anti-police rhetoric has escalated so much that New York City police officers are being assaulted in broad daylight for doing their jobs — which is to protect the public.

In July 2019, several NYPD officers were filmed getting doused with water and pelted with buckets, fueling outrage among law-abiding Americans. NYPD Chief Terence Monahan called the attacks “reprehensible.”

In a statement, the Police Benevolent Association of New York (PBA) condemned the water attacks, and blamed lawmakers who foment violence against cops by repeatedly demonizing and trashing law enforcement.

Patrick Lynch said, “Our anti-cop lawmakers have gotten their wish: the NYPD is now frozen … [The water attacks are] the end result of the torrent of bad policies and anti-police rhetoric. We are approaching the point of no return.”

While leftists think it’s okay to throw water buckets at police, keep in mind that in cities like London, the buckets could easily have been filled with acid instead of water. This is the dangerous slippery slope the lawless left is taking us down.

Flashback: This is what happened to one police officer this time last year, thanks to the Left’s anti-cop rhetoric and championing of illegal immigration.
