Two-Tiered Justice System

America’s two-tiered justice system was on full display recently in our Judiciary Committee hearing with Attorney General Merrick Garland.

Despite vowing to “ensure equal justice under the law,” since Merrick Garland became the Attorney General the Department of Justice (DOJ) has become Biden’s personal police force.

From labeling concerned parents and Catholics as terrorists to handing out excessive sentences for pro-life activists and aggressively targeting President Biden’s political opponents while slow-walking the criminal investigation of Hunter Biden, the outrageous abuses of power and weaponization at the DOJ is out of control.

During the criminal investigation into Hunter Biden, the Assistant U.S. Attorney dragged her feet due to the “optics,” and when there was no choice but to move forward, investigators gave Hunter’s defense counsel a play-by-play of their future investigative actions – including when they would be issuing a search warrant for his storage unit.

I asked AG Garland whether it was standard operating procedure to give the defense counsel a heads-up on when search warrants would be executed.

Not surprisingly, he didn’t give us a straight answer.

By the time the summer of 2022 rolled around, the DOJ was no longer concerned with “optics” when they made the unprecedented decision to raid former President Trump’s home in the months leading up to the midterm elections in search of classified material.

Several Presidents, Vice Presidents, and even Cabinet Secretaries have retained classified documents after leaving office. In fact, every administration since the 1980s has mishandled classified documents. But only one was charged by the DOJ – and he just so happens to be President Biden’s political opponent.

Rather than defend or explain his decisions, AG Garland dodged most questions or flat out refused to answer. If Congress cannot even get answers from the DOJ when their leader is under oath, it’s easy to understand why only 17% of Americans have “a great deal” of confidence in the people running the Justice Department.

It’s long past time for Congress to start using every tool at our disposal to rein in the weaponization at the DOJ. More on that later – so stay tuned.

Thanks, Tom Tiffany, for your astute observation and for making it public. So sad that we know this, but we have lost an honorable press, I guess they have too much freedom of the press, as it seems like they only print their agenda nowadays.

Only one former President has retained national security secret documents and tried to hide them from the government when he was asked to return them.
