Attorney General Merrick Garland’s Sept. 20 congressional testimony was disgracefully evasive and misleading. He merits no confidence in leading the Justice Department. He inhibits justice and the rule of law.
Garland said he can’t even “recollect” whether he “had personal contact” with anyone at the FBI about the investigation into presidential son Hunter Biden. Really? That’s like a coach saying he can’t recollect if he spoke to his quarterback before the most consequential play in a Super Bowl. It is simply not believable.
Garland repeatedly pawned off to underlings the responsibility for controversial decisions.

He did the Pilate-washing-hands thing when questioned about an armed FBI raid on the child-filled House of a peaceful pro-life protester, saying it was a decision made locally that he still, a year later, won’t denounce. Garland feigned ignorance of basic details about FBI observational presence at the 2021 Capitol riot.
