AG Garland Testifies Before House Judiciary Committee

He fielded questions regarding partisanship in the Justice Department.

Attorney General (AG) Merrick Garland appeared before the House Judiciary Committee this week, where he was questioned by representatives about the Department of Justice’s (DOJ) handling of its inquiry into Hunter Biden. The attorney general defended his department against allegations of partisanship and political interference.

“Our job is not to take orders from the president, from Congress, or from anyone else, about who or what to criminally investigate,” Attorney General Garland said. “We will not be intimidated. We will do our jobs free from outside interference.”

Representative Victoria Spartz of Indiana stated, “As someone who grew up in the Soviet Union, I’m disturbed by the fact that so many hardworking Americans—including my constituents—are afraid of political persecution by our own government.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • That the attorney general would uphold the law and lead the Justice Department impartially.
  • For members of the House Judiciary Committee as they inquire into federal law enforcement actions and policies.
  • For wisdom for Congressman Jim Jordan as he chairs the House Judiciary Committee.
