A damning expletive-filled video surfaced Wednesday of Suffolk County District Attorney Rachael Rollins tearing into reporters who were investigating her over abuse of power after she was confirmed as President Biden’s U.S. attorney for Massachusetts.
The video is from January 2021 following the Capitol riot. She accused the reporters of risking the lives of her children when they tried to interview her near her home.
The revealing video is from Boston 25 News. During the segment, Rollins became incensed that reporters had found out where she lived and dared to ask her questions. Her address is a matter of public record.
“So as a black woman, in this moment in this country, you’re going to put my f***ing house on screen?” Rollins snarled at the reporter. It should be noted that her house and address were never shown.
“No, no, no, ma’am, we’re just here approaching you to ask you a question,” the reporter stated.
“Get away from my family. Speak to me at my job. If I get hurt or harmed because of this, you are on the record for that, or my kids are f***ing killed,” Rollins snapped at the reporters. “Who do you think you are? This is private property. Get out of here!” It should be noted that the confrontation took place in a parking lot, not on private property.
Rollins threatened to call the police on the reporters, “And you know what I’ll do? I’ll call the police and make an allegation. And we’ll see how that works with you.”
“So the rantings of a white woman get you here and scare my children?” Rollins raged.
“Get off our private property, and I swear to God, I’m dead serious. I will find your name,” she added, though the reporter openly offered to give her name to the ranting woman.
The interview was in response to a complaint filed by a woman named Katie Lawson who is accusing Rollins of abuse of power. She had a run-in with the DA when she attempted to merge ahead of the attorney’s car while both were leaving a parking lot.
“She pulled her car about three inches from my car and said, ‘Do you want me to write you a ticket? Because I’ll write you a ticket,’ put on the sirens, put on the strobe lights for like, probably a couple of seconds,” Lawson claimed, adding she said, “Today is not the day to try me.”
“I one thousand percent thought that she was a police officer because the only person I know that can write you a ticket is an actual police officer. So she implied, in my opinion, she implied that she was a police officer. I thought she was a police officer. That’s why I called the police department,” she recounted.
Lawson, who spoke with Fox News host Tucker Carlson about the incident, also accused Rollins of calling her racist on social media even though her boyfriend was driving and is black.

Leftists such as Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and “Squad” member Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) praised the nomination of Rollins by Biden.
“Suffolk County @DARollins is a national leader on transforming the criminal justice system and fighting the root causes of injustice,” Warren tweeted in July. “She is a great choice for US Attorney – @SenMarkey and I were proud to recommend her to the Biden administration.”
“Congratulations to my sister in service, @DARollins, on her historic nomination,” Pressley wrote. “She has fought to transform our legal system by prioritizing racial justice, decarceration & reimagining public safety in MA. @POTUS has made an excellent choice.”

Rollins also received kudos from far-left district attorneys who have been backed by billionaire George Soros. San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin proclaimed that Rollins was a “GREAT choice!” and Arlington County Commonwealth’s Attorney Parisa Dehghani-Tafti called Rollins a “brilliant lawyer and a wonderful person.”
But constitutional conservatives were alarmed at her confirmation.
Senator Ted Cruz warned Democrats that they would regret Rollins’ confirmation.
“I rise today to strongly oppose the confirmation of Rachael Rollins to be a U.S. Attorney in Massachusetts. Many Americans have probably never heard of Rachael Rollins, but they’re becoming very familiar with the kind of lawlessness and dangerous crime that radical left-wing district attorneys like her have generated under their watch,” the Texas Republican said. “We’ve seen looting and larceny, and violent crime rates rise in cities all over the country the past couple of years. Ms. Rollins is part of a web of left-wing district attorneys across the country who see it as their job not to prosecute crime, [but] rather, to protect criminals.”
Cruz also called her a “lawless so-called prosecutor.”

Facts are stubborn things.
Today, in the Judiciary Committee, I walked through a document showing that Rachael Rollins, Joe Biden’s extreme nominee to be U.S. Attorney for Massachusetts, will refuse to prosecute crimes.

“Democrats have defunded police departments, stopped prosecutions for numerous crimes, ended cash bail, and demanded early release even for violent criminals,” Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) who serves on the Senate Judiciary Committee, commented in July, according to Fox News. “These actions resulted in a historic increase in murders and contributed to the crime wave. Rachael Rollins won’t stand up for the victims of these crimes, and I will seek to stop her nomination.”

Cotton took issue with a policy memo Rollins released shortly after taking office in January 2019. It identified over a dozen charges she said she would not be inclined to prosecute, such as mental health or substance abuse treatment.
Crimes that Rollins does not intend to prosecute include drug possession, trespassing, disorderly conduct, shoplifting, and breaking and entering, according to her campaign website.
