Attorney General Merrick Garland could be facing impeachment by Republicans if the GOP wins back control of Congress this November, said Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) on NewsmaxTV Thursday.
The Biden administration AG has made headlines in recent years for his seemingly aggressive attitude towards dissenting parents at local school board meets, his refusal to prosecute certain offenses on political grounds, and most recently — reportedly refusing to take any official action against protesters who are outside the homes of Supreme Court Justices, in light of recent high profile decisions.
“I think everything’s on the table,” Jordan told “Rob Schmitt Tonight.” “The main thing is, we got to take our message to the American people, not get overconfident in campaigning.”
He added that after voters give “[Republicans] the majority in the House, I think everything should be on the table when it comes to the attorney general.”
Jordan also highlighted a section of the U.S. Code prohibiting the picketing or parading outside a judge’s residence or a jurist’s home to push the outcome of particular cases.
He then said the infighting between these two branches of government is freighting and tantamount to intimidation in certain situations.
“[Garland] refuses to prosecute any of these protesters, confirming something that I think is very scary,” the Ohio Republican added. “We now have one of the key agencies in the executive branch joining in the effort to intimidate a separate and equal branch of government, the judicial branch. That is scary when that kind of stuff goes on.”
He continued, “That’s certainly what it looks like… this is one of the reasons I think so many people have concerns.”
Jordan is set to take over the gavel as Chairman of the Judiciary Committee if Republicans are victorious and retake the House this Fall. He has also gone on record saying he would launch an investigation into Dr. Anthony Fauci over his handling of the COVID-19 pandemic.
In addition, the Judiciary Committee may be pushed by the public to look at mass censorship and blatant bias against conservatives by Big Tech platforms — and within Silicon Valley at large.
