Garland Faces New Congress for First Time

On Wednesday, U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee for the first time this Congress. Like in past hearings, Attorney General Garland failed to own up to the obvious problems with the Department of Justice (DOJ) under his leadership. However, a major admission he made alluded to an undeniable failure of the Biden Administration as a whole—Biden's Border Crisis:

Attorney General Merrick Garland says Mexican drug cartels unleashed the fentanyl crisis on the U.S. "on purpose," and urged the Mexican government to "do more" to combat drug trafficking.

Garland made the statement while testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday. Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., pressed Garland regarding the opioid epidemic, highlighting that fentanyl is responsible for more deaths than guns and car accidents.

"It's a horrible epidemic, but it's an epidemic that's been unleashed on purpose by the Sinaloa and the new generation Jalisco cartels," Garland said.

One of the most astonishing parts of Garland's testimony included him repeatedly denying responsibility for prosecuting individuals unlawfully protesting in front of Supreme Court Justices' homes in the wake of the Dobbs decision:

“You just said yes, it’s a crime to protest at the home of a judge. Same goes for jurors, by the way, with the intent of influencing a case. But in the wake of the leak of the Dobbs decision, when rioters descended on the homes of six Supreme Court justices, night after night after night, you did nothing,” Senator Ted Cruz said to Garland. “The Department [of Justice] did nothing.”

Cruz repeatedly asked the attorney general whether a single prosecution has been brought against such protestors.

“Why are you unwilling to say no? You know it’s ‘no.’ I know it’s ‘no.’ Everyone in this hearing room knows it’s ‘no,'” said Cruz.  “You’re not willing to answer the question.”

Garland's excuses are just plain lame at this point. When asked about related attacks on churches and pregnancy resource centers, he blamed the lack of charges filed on the crimes being committed in the dark.

And Garland is also apparently even unable to investigate groups that take responsibility for these attacks.

We guess he's too busy going after those who are often the victims of these crimes to consider the violence perpetrated against them. 

This is just the tip of the iceberg of the rampant corruption within a DOJ that has been weaponized against the American people and treats Democrats and Republicans differently from each other.

No matter how many times Attorney General Garland denies it, it is obvious, as Senator Ted Cruz pointed out, that Garland's DOJ effectively acts as the enforcement arm of the DNC.
