Attorney General Testifies Before House Judiciary Committee

The committee chair states, “There is now a double standard in our justice system.“

Attorney General Merrick Garland appeared before the House Judiciary Committee this week. He denied that the Justice Department’s powers have been used to influence political outcomes. He maintained that such reports are conspiracy theories and that he does not allow politics to interfere with federal criminal investigations.

Members of the committee questioned the attorney general about the criminal investigation into President Biden’s son, Hunter. Legislators also asked him about a DOJ official who left the department to join the prosecution in former President Donald Trump’s trial in New York.

Judiciary Committee Chair Jim Jordan of Ohio stated, “Many Americans believe there is now a double standard in our justice system.” He then affirmed the belief as a fact.

The House majority has also proposed defunding special counsel Jack Smith’s cases against former President Trump, claiming those and other cases are politically motivated.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For God’s purposes to be accomplished in and through the federal justice system.
  • For Attorney General Merrick Garland and DOJ officials to uphold the law impartially.
