Republicans May Impeach AG Garland?
If Republicans take the House this November, they may move to impeach AG Garland for failing to protect the Supreme Court Justices.
From Breitbart. U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland could face impeachment proceedings over the Department of Justice’s failure to enforce a federal statute that prevents picketing or parading outside of Supreme Court Justices’ homes, should Republicans take the majority in the House of Representatives in the midterm elections.
Conservative Supreme Court Justices were subjected to demonstrations outside of their residences in Maryland and Virginia following the unprecedented leak of the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization draft decision in May, indicating the longstanding Roe v. Wade decision would be overturned. The leak was possibly an attempt “to intimidate one or more justices to reverse their vote or to ignite a liberal brushfire to pack the Supreme Court before Democrats lose Congress in November,” as Breitbart News reported.
The justices stood firm in their decisions and did not cave to pressure from the left, media, and protestors following the leak. On June 24, the official decision came down, which found abortion to be unconstitutional, overturning Roe and making abortion an issue for state legislatures to decide.
“According to 18 U.S. Code § 1507, it is illegal to attempt to influence a judge’s ruling or interfere with the discharge of their duty with pickets or parades near any building occupied by a judge,” Breitbart News previously reported. The statute makes the protests outside of justices’ homes illegal, but it was not enforced by President Joe Biden’s DOJ overseen by Garland. While speaking with the Washington Free Beacon, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) did not dismiss the idea of a Garland impeachment inquiry.
“That’ll be a decision that will be made by the entire conference,” said Jordan, who — if Republicans take back the House — is slated to head up the House Judiciary Committee.
“The key question we would like to find out, if in fact the American people put us in control, is was this similar to what happened with parents at school board meetings?” Jordan noted. “In other words, was the Biden White House working with some outside left wing influence groups, and also then communicating that information to the DOJ?…”
