Merrick Garland Lied Under Oath!
Senator Katie Britt grilled Attorney General Merrick Garland for his undermining of the US Justice system.
Merrick Garland, seemingly the most dishonest Attorney General in United States history, has been unwilling to investigate or punish obvious criminal conduct on the left. Yet he continues to pursue Trump supporters and raids their homes at dawn for entering into the US Capitol on January 6 after they were encouraged by police officers.
During the Senate Appropriations Committee hearing on Tuesday, Senator Britt inquired about directives given to US Marshals guarding Supreme Court justices’ residences that they “should not arrest protesters” despite Attorney General Garland previously asserting that marshals could make arrests at their own discretion.
Senator Britt: You said, quote, “The marshals have been advised, and they know and the marshals on the ground, they have full authority to arrest people under any federal statute, including that federal statute,” end quote. That was in direct reference to Section 1507. You went on to say, the Attorney General does not decide whether to arrest. The Marshals on the scene they do make the decision of whether to arrest.”
She then continued to expose him…
Senator Britt: “After your appearance before the Judiciary Committee, we obtained copies of the slide deck that were used to train and prepare the Marshals for their protective detail at the homes of the Justices. Those training materials show that the marshals likely didn’t make any arrests under Section 1507 for a pretty simple reason they were actively discouraged from doing so. As you can see on the slide behind me, the marshals were explicitly told to avoid, unless absolutely necessary, any criminal enforcement action involving the protester.
To make matters worse, the Department of Justice instructed Marshals to actively avoid any kind of enforcement related to protests.
Senator Britt: The next slide directs the Marshals not to engage in protest-related enforcement actions beyond those that were strictly and immediately necessary and tailored to ensure the physical security of the justices. If you’ll see in the next slide here, it discourages the Marshals from making arrests under any section 1507 by asserting that “there may be a First Amendment right to harass the families of the judges.”
It’s obvious that Garland deserves impeachment proceedings right away. He callously endangered the Supreme Court justices and their families with his order to stand down, making it painfully apparent that he is not an Attorney General but a criminal mastermind.
His decision to arrest 1,000 Trump supporters on January 6th for congregating outside the Capitol exacerbated the matter even further. It truly is mind-boggling behavior. Senator Britt did an amazing job grilling Garland.
