Garland set to face House Judiciary amid myriad investigations
Attorney General Merrick Garland will appear before the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday, where he will address questions about the ongoing impeachment inquiry and allegations of the Justice Department’s “weaponization” by House Republicans. Garland plans to emphasize that his office does not make decisions based on political motivations and that he is not the President’s lawyer or Congress’s prosecutor. Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep. Jim Jordan has requested answers from Garland regarding the investigation into Hunter Biden, following claims by IRS whistleblowers that the probe had been slow-walked. The GOP has criticized the handling of the Hunter Biden case, accusing him of receiving favorable treatment and questioning prosecutors’ failure to pursue stronger evidence of tax crimes.
