Garland Grilled in Congress over War on Parents

'Thank God you are not on the Supreme Court. You should resign in disgrace, judge...'

Republican Senators are calling on Attorney General Merrick Garland to resign after Garland appeared before a Senate committee to testify about a memo that the attorney general issued regarding investigation of parents who protest against school boards.

The memo was prompted by a letter to the Justice Department by the National School Boards Association that alleged that school board members, school children and teachers were under “immediate threats” of violence by parents according to the letter.

“When you got [the letter] that prompted your memorandum to give the FBI new duties in making sure our parents aren’t dangerous domestic terrorists,” Sen. John Kennedy, R-La., asked Garland, “you didn’t investigate before you issued your memorandum the incidents cited in the letter, did you?”

“This is the first step,” said Garland. “This is an assessment step that comes before investigations.”

“Right. Before you issued your memo, you didn’t investigate the incident,” answered Kennedy.

Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., asked Garland what the basis of the investigation would be after Garland cited media reports that led him to believe that violence was imminent since the NSBA letter cited incidents that had no threats of violence

“There were 24 incidents in that letter [from the NSBA]. As you’ve heard today almost all of them were nonviolent, they were not threats of violence,” said Cotton. “OK, what other reports that you saw about potential violence at school boards were you basing this memo on?”

“I don’t recall them specifically,” said Garland, “but I have now again seen since that time, people saying that they’re repeating what they have said before.”

Appearing before the House, Garland was asked if he was investigating COVID czar Anthony Fauci for lying to Congress over testimony about U.S. funding of virus research, or Hunter Biden over allegations of influence peddling while his father was vice president and president.

However, Garland refused to answer, according to Fox News.

“This is shameful,” Cotton told Garland who was nominated by then-president Obama for the Supreme Court. “Judge, this is shameful. This testimony, your directive, your performance is shameful. Thank God you are not on the Supreme Court. You should resign in disgrace, judge.”
