Surprise, surprise. The D.C. Attorney General has cut a sweetheart deal with far-left Democrat Congressman Jamaal Bowman after he pulled a fire alarm in the Cannon House Office Building in an apparent effort to delay a House vote. Committee on House Administration Chairman Bryan Steil joined Fox Business to discuss the bizarre series of events during and after Bowman's stunt.Read more
On Wednesday, the House Judiciary Committee held an oversight hearing of the Department of Justice. Attorney General Merrick Garland spent the marathon hearing denying the agency's weaponization against everyday Americans and deflecting questions about its ongoing investigation into Hunter Biden.
Today in @JudiciaryGOP, AG Merrick Garland followed the same pattern as the rest of the Biden DOJ.— Congressman Ben Cline (@RepBenCline) September 20, 2023
Deny, deflect, defy.
Today, U.S. Attorney for Delaware David Weiss was appointed Special Counsel by Attorney General Merrick Garland. As House Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan points out:
First, David Weiss said he didn’t have the power he needed and wanted special counsel status.— Rep. Jim Jordan (@Jim_Jordan) August 11, 2023
Then, he said he had all the power he needs.
Now, he gets special counsel status because he didn’t really have the power he needs?
Something’s not right.
House Ways and Means Chair Jason Smith gives a very plausible answer to Chairman Jordan’s question:
🧵Announcement of a special counsel only happened because congressional GOP exposed the two-tiered judicial system by shining light onto the investigation into Hunter Biden’s alleged financial crimes & the political interference that shielded both him & POTUS from scrutiny.— Rep. Jason Smith (@RepJasonSmith) August 11, 2023
In recent weeks, the prioritization of partisanship over principle by the Biden Department of Justice (DOJ) has increasingly come into focus. As we reported last week, a plea deal between Hunter Biden and the DOJ for tax crimes was rejected by Delaware U.S. District Court Judge Maryellen Noreika who pointed out that the agreement contained "unusual" terms that would have given Biden "broad immunity" from other charges being considered against him.Read more
On Wednesday, Hunter Biden was expected to plead guilty and accept a plea deal for a felony gun possession charge and two misdemeanor tax crimes. However, the deal fell through when Delaware U.S. District Court Judge Maryellen Noreika expressed concerns about the scope of the agreement. National Review reported:
Noreika described the deal struck with U.S. Attorney David Weiss of Delaware as “unusual” and questioned why the deal contained some “non-standard terms,” such as “broad immunity” from other potential charges.Read more
Special Counsel John Durham has completed his probe into the Federal Bureau of Investigation's (FBI) "Crossfire Hurricane" investigation which morphed into the broader Trump-Russia probe by the Department of Justice (DOJ). The report minced no words in its criticism of the FBI and DOJ:
"Based on the review of Crossfire Hurricane and related intelligence activities, we conclude that the Department and the FBI failed to uphold their mission of strict fidelity to the law in connection with certain events and activities described in this report," the report said.Read more
Earlier this week, House Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan issued a subpoena to FBI Director Christopher Wray regarding allegations that the Bureau "sought to use local religious organizations as 'new avenues for tripwire and source development.'"

The House Judiciary Committee and the Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government have issued a scathing report on U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland's targeting of parents concerned with the leftist agenda in K-12 education. The report explains:
From the initial set of material produced in response to the subpoenas, it is apparent that the Biden Administration misused federal law-enforcement and counterterrorism resources for political purposes. The Justice Department’s own documents demonstrate that there was no compelling nationwide law-enforcement justification for the Attorney General’s directive or the Department components’ execution thereof. After surveying local law enforcement, U.S. Attorney’s offices around the country reported back to Main Justice that there was no legitimate law-enforcement basis for the Attorney General’s directive to use federal law-enforcement and counterterrorism resources to investigate school board-related threats.Read more
On Sunday, a group of far-left violent extremists armed with explosives stormed the future site of a law enforcement training facility in Atlanta:
The group is accused of leaving a nearby music festival Sunday evening and heading to the construction site of the Atlanta Public Safety Training Center "to conduct a coordinated attack on construction equipment and police officers."Read more
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.Read more
