Garland Can’t Waive Own Charges: Congress Lawyers Up for Court

Mike Johnson could order Garland arrested and tried before Congress.

Contrary to his delusional fantasies of omnipotence, Merrick Garland doesn’t really run this country. When Congress voted to hold him in contempt for thumbing his nose at them, they knew he would simply do it again. That’s okay. They expected a fight and have a couple of options. On Friday, June 14, House Speaker Mike Johnson announced he’ll be moving to enforce their subpoena in civil court. Johnson also holds “inherent contempt power.” If he chooses to use that, it means having a House Sergeant-At-Arms deputy arrest the Attorney General. After that, they can drag him around in chains until Congress decides what to do with him.

Garland won’t prosecute himself

As soon as Congress officially referred criminal charges against Merrick Garland to the Just Us Department, the Attorney General had one of his flunkies send off a quick bird-flipping response.

When the U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia got the packet “certifying the contempt records,” his boss the AG politely declined to prosecute himself because he already knows he’s innocent. The charges were DOA before the DOJ even got the referral.

The Deep State had already “determined that the responses by Attorney General Garland to the subpoenas issued by the Committees did not constitute a crime.” Because they committed it.

Steve Bannon and Peter Navarro are hopping mad over that statement. As Speaker Johnson pointed out in his press conference on Friday.

It is sadly predictable that the Biden administration’s Justice Department will not prosecute Garland for defying congressional subpoenas even though the department aggressively prosecuted Steve Bannon and Peter Navarro for the same thing.

It’s clear to the Louisiana Republican that this “is yet another example of the two-tiered system of justice brought to us by the Biden administration.” Let’s Go Brandon!

Merrick Garland doesn’t really run this country.

Covering Joe’s incompetence

The only reason that Merrick Garland would have for denying Congress access to the raw recordings is because they would leak to the public. The regime wouldn’t be able to cover up exactly how mentally unfit Joe is to run the country. Democrats don’t mind because they know he’s only a puppet who signs whatever his handlers put in front of him.

The problem is that the same time We the People learn the truth about Joe’s mental state, the Chinese learn it too. What better time to make a move on Taiwan than when Joe’s out of commission. Kamala might even be carrying the button already. The problem with that is nobody can find her. She’s known for dropping off the radar for weeks at a time.

Garland insists that he can ignore a Congressional subpoena demanding Robert Hur’s audio tapes because he already handed over the transcripts. The thing everyone’s terrified to admit is that the tapes will show the actual Truth.

That’s a possibility Democrats simply can’t bear to face. If a civil suit in federal court doesn’t break the recordings loose then Republicans have a nuclear option of their own.

When the shoe was on the other foot and William Barr was in the same situation, Constitution Center did an analysis of the possibilities. Progressives aren’t reprinting it now. “Inherent contempt was the mode employed by Congress to directly enforce contempt rulings under its own constitutional authority until criminal and civil contempt statutes were passed, and it remained in use into the twentieth century.

For Garland, that means “the House or Senate has its Sergeant-At-Arms, or deputy, take a person into custody for proceedings to be held in Congress.
