Every time this shitbag ‘testifies’, he commits perjury.
You would think that an attorney general who has presided over the embarrassing debacle of the Hunter Biden investigation would express contrition, or maybe a little anger at the underlings who have shamed him, when he is hauled before a congressional committee to explain his failures.
But alas, Merrick Garland is just another Mr. Magoo.
His department is ablaze but he knows nothing.
The nation’s chief law enforcement officer has no special insight into the malfeasance unfolding under his nose.
He is just an oblivious bystander, unperturbed by the tyrannical turn the DOJ has taken under his leadership, persecuting his boss’s political enemies and coddling the crooked president’s crooked relatives.
Even though Garland used to be a judge, he makes no judgments at all.
He professes to have no view about US Attorney David Weiss’ farcical five-year “investigation” of the president’s 53-year-old son Hunter.
“I promised the Senate that I would not interfere,” he told the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday.
“I have not intruded or attempted to evaluate that, because that was the promise I made to the Senate.” What an honorable man, keeping his promises.
But he’s the ship’s captain. There is a fire in the hold, the vessel is going down, and he doesn’t even trouble himself to find out what happened.
“Have you had personal contact with anyone at FBI headquarters about the Hunter Biden investigation?” asked Rep. Mike Johnson (R-La.).
For what seemed like an eternity but was really about seven seconds, Garland looked down at his tightly clasped hands, slowly turned his head left and right as if the answer might materialize somewhere on the empty table below him, then popped his tongue, said “Ahhhh,” pursed his lips, exhaled and arranged the edges of his mouth in a downward shrug, before finally looking up at Johnson with a sheepish expression and stammering, “I don’t real … I don’t … ah … I don’t recollect the answer to that question, but the FBI works for the Justice Department?,” a non sequitur delivered in a cascade of upward inflections as if he was the one asking questions, or maybe channeling a Valley Girl.
He wants us to applaud his pathological incuriosity about the corruption of Weiss’ probe, as exposed by the two valiant IRS whistleblowers, Gary Shapley and Joseph Ziegler. The sort of professional, nonpartisan public servants whom Garland professes to support, they are the heroes of this sordid tale.
They blew up their careers to testify about the slow-walking, the kid-glove treatment available to no other American, the tip-offs about search warrants, the constraints on investigators, the no-go zones anywhere near the Big Guy, the refusal of geolocation searches to determine whether Joe really was in the room, as Hunter claimed, in his shakedown WhatsApp to a Chinese benefactor, the burying of incriminating evidence such as the FD-1023 FBI source report alleging Hunter and Joe each took a $5 million bribe from a Ukrainian oligarch, and of course, Hunter’s infamous laptop, which the FBI had authenticated and seized in December 2019, but which remained off-limits to the IRS investigators.
Not his problem, Garland communicated, as he delivered the bravura stonewalling performance we’ve come to expect from Biden appointees.
The FBI suppressed the criminal evidence in Hunter Biden’s laptop, and protects the Biden family from being charged with their crimes–including treason with ChiCom business partners.
Whistleblowers from the FBI and DOJ have testified that high ranking leadership in both agencies interfered—obstructed justice—in the investigation of Hunter Biden and Joe Biden’s involvement.
Their corruption and role as a political weapon for the DNC continues unabated.
Rep. Thomas Massie accused Attorney General Merrick Garland on Wednesday of lying during a House Judiciary Committee hearing about his knowledge of federal law enforcement activities during the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol riot.
Massie (R-Ky.) previously tangled with Garland in October 2021 over the same issue, questioning whether undercover FBI agents were present at the storming of the Capitol.
At the time, Massie showed video footage of then-Arizona Oath Keepers president Ray Epps, who had urged protesters on the eve of the “Stop the Steal” rally “to go into the Capitol” — but had never been charged.
The attorney general had replied he would “not comment on pending investigations,” per Justice Department policy.
On Wednesday, Garland told Massie and other members of the House Judiciary Committee that he had no knowledge of federal involvement on Jan. 6 — despite an FBI official testifying in June that “a handful” of confidential human sources were there.
“That was your answer to a question to me two years ago, when I said how many agents or assets of the government were present on January 5 and January 6, and agitating in the crowd to go into the Capitol and how many went into the Capitol,” Massie recounted. “Can you answer that now?”
“I don’t know the answer to that question,” Garland replied.
“You don’t know how many there were, or there were none?” Massie pressed.
“I don’t know the answer to either of those questions,” Garland said. “If there were any, I don’t know how many. I don’t know whether there are any.”
“I think you may have just perjured yourself — that you don’t know that there were any? You want to say that again?” Massie shot back.
“I have no personal knowledge of this matter,” Garland said. “I think what I said last time —”
“You’ve had two years to find out,” Massie interjected. “By the way, that was in reference to Ray Epps, and yesterday you indicted him. Isn’t that a wonderful coincidence? On a misdemeanor.
“Meanwhile, you’re sending grandmas to prison. You’re putting people away for 20 years for merely filming. Some people weren’t even there.”
“May have” perjured himself???
Revolver did an investigative report into the specifics of Epps’ movements along with other operatives who moved around and inside the capitol grounds cutting through fences, removing barriers, with Ray Epps standing front and center giving out directions.
Read all of it. It’s a breakdown of a classic FBI set up.
The FBI framed the 6 January MAGA protesters by inserting undercover agents and informants in the crowd to encourage violence. It backfired, but that’s not stopping the Feds from persecuting people who simply wandered the hallways, stood outside the building, and peacefully protested.
Epps was a Fed plant. He’s been exposed.
The Biden’s are a national security problem of epic proportions. Their financial ties to Beijing and ChiCom spies should have resulted in several indictments. They committed treason for profit. Hunter Biden’s laptop contains a mountain of evidence proving the family’s influence peddling and shady business deals.
The DOJ and FBI haven’t investigated a fucking thing against their protected groups and individuals.
By now, it should be apparent that every time an FBI or DOJ official says: “I can’t discuss matters under investigation” and “I don’t know or I don’t recall”, they’re committing perjury. Garland lies under oath. The US Marshalls should be on hand to escort lying officials off to a jail cell until they come clean.
The FBI and the DOJ need to be dismantled from the top down. The criminal malfeasants in both agencies should be indicted and prosecuted. We know that won’t happen because agencies weaponized by Dem regimes trample all over the Constitution while Congress does nothing. All the hot air and indignation during oversight hearings are a dog and pony show.
