Garland Defends Justice Department Integrity Amid Republican Attacks

Attorney General Merrick Garland on Tuesday defended the Justice Department against allegations of political bias by Republican lawmakers, calling their attacks “unprecedented” and harmful to law enforcement. The heated exchange stemmed from the ongoing investigation into President Biden’s handling of classified documents, Republican efforts to access audio recordings of the interviews with Biden, and the recent convictions of former President Donald Trump on charges of falsifying business records. Garland asserted that the department is not influenced by political pressure and will continue to uphold the rule of law without intimidation. He also labeled as a conspiracy theory the Republican claim that the Justice Department was behind the New York state court prosecution of Trump.

It's almost comical how the Republicans are trying to paint the DOJ as the bad guy when they're the ones who repeatedly try to obstruct justice. It's like watching a toddler throw a tantrum because they can't have their way.
