Can someone tell me what the hell the Attorney General does under this administration? AG Merrick Garland certainly isn’t going after the violent left for firebombing pro-life facilities or making blatant threats on social media. He’s not going after states with uncheck criminal activity or investigating the Biden crime family. He’s also, apparently, not conducting an independent investigation into the January 6th Capitol protest.
According to Trey Gowdy, Garland is using the bias J6 hearings to collect ‘evidence’ for his investigation. The hearings aren’t looking at how the protesters were able to gain access to the Capitol. They’re questioning why lawmakers didn’t intervene or have National Gaurd on site but that’s where Garland is pulling his Intel?
Gowdy: “There’s nothing wrong with watching television… but I guess the difference is, you and I don’t have much of a choice when it comes to getting information. We don’t get to have an army of investigators and prosecutors at our disposal, Merrick Garland does. He has federal law enforcement at his beck and call. He has scores of prosecutors, he has access to a grand jury and search warrants… he can access financial records and phone records… he can compel witnesses to testify… so why is he watching television? Why does the chief prosecutor, the managing partner of most powerful law firm in the world need to watch television to gather facts? He can interview any of the witnesses he wants to interview. He can gather whatever evidence he thinks is relevant.
There is no comparison between the power of the Department of Justice versus the power of Congress, yet the attorney general is not only watching TV, the department is miffed that Congress will not share what it has with the department. Why? Why is the attorney general gathering evidence from television? And how reliable would that evidence be given the absence of confrontation or cross-examination? Garland and his prosecutors can watch whatever they want on television. [But] I do wonder why the attorney general is watching a hearing when he has far better investigative tools at his disposal?… It does make you wonder what the department has been doing for the past 18 months. If you want to know what happened, find and examine witnesses and evidence. The remote control ain’t going to help you.”
Is laziness? Is Garland just trying to remain compliant with the J6 narrative? Because it looks like a little bit of column A and a whole lot of column B to me. What do you think?
