In a dramatic turn of events today, Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene has presented Articles of Impeachment against U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland.
Her press release, a scathing indictment of Garland’s tenure since his March 2021 appointment, alleges severe politicization and misuse of the Department of Justice (DOJ).
“Since Merrick Garland took over as Attorney General in March of 2021, he has completely weaponized the Department of ‘Injustice,'” Greene stated in her release. “The politicization of the DOJ has resulted in the persecution of the left’s political enemies, and a two-tiered justice system.”
The Congresswoman accused Garland of utilizing the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) as a “personal police force” for President Joe Biden.
She cited examples of the FBI investigating parents protesting local school boards, pursuing pro-life activists and Catholics, and continuing to investigate former President Donald J. Trump.
“Garland has used the FBI as a personal police force for his boss, Joe Biden,” Greene’s press release asserted. “From investigating parents who protest their local school boards, to going after pro-life activists and Catholics, to persecuting former and future President Donald J. Trump, Merrick Garland’s corruption knows no bounds.”
Further allegations put forth by Greene suggest that Garland has allowed significant damage caused by Antifa and Black Lives Matter activists to go unpunished.
“Antifa and Black Lives Matter terrorists have caused billions of dollars of damage to property. Instead of prosecuting these crimes, Garland has persecuted Americans who engaged in legitimate political protest, people who were overwhelmingly nonviolent,” she contended.
Greene’s press release also suggested that the DOJ’s actions against former President Trump constitute election interference.
She claimed that the “DOJ’s persecution of Joe Biden’s primary political adversary, Donald J. Trump, is anti-American.”
She further described the raid on the former President’s home for legally declassifying documents as a “transparent violation of justice.”
In a final call to action, the Congresswoman stated, “Therefore, U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland must be impeached.”
