It looks like we may get the first substantial move by the GOP House against Attorney General Merrick Garland.
Sunday morning, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) dropped the bombshell during an interview on Fox News' "Sunday Morning Futures."
Jordan seemed pretty certain that Garland would be impeached in the House at a "pretty quick pace."
Time to Go
The evidence is stacked very deep against Garland, especially with the latest testimony from IRS agents and the long-awaited 10-23 form from the FBI.
Jordan stated, "I will tell you this the speaker has been very clear, Speaker McCarthy has said if we have to go to an impeachment inquiry, we will, in fact, do that. It sure looks like now, based on the evidence that keeps piling up, based on what Sen. Grassley released this week, the 10-23 form, what we heard from the whistleblowers this past week, and the conflicting statements from the justice department, it sure looks like we're moving in that direction at a pretty quick pace," reported the Washington Examiner.
Jordan also noted that he has reached out to Merrick Garland, most recently on the Hunter Biden investigation, but Garland never returned the call. Instead, he was contacted by David Weiss, the U.S. attorney in Delaware, who was allegedly handling the investigation into Hunter Biden.
This is a tough one for me because I firmly believe that Merrick Garland needs to be removed. The problem, of course, is that this will fall on deaf ears once it goes to the Senate.
Rather than waste all that money on an impeachment hearing, a better result may be to have open hearings with Garland, calling him out on national TV with all of this evidence, to the point that he is pressured into resigning.
Why not encourage protests at his office and home as Democrats have done to Republicans and conservative justices of the Supreme Court?
I have stated many times that Republicans really need to start to get dirty and use the same playbook as Democrats on these issues. Impeaching him in the House is futile because it will never get through the Senate.
Publicly exposing this man and making him suffer through endless protests every time he sticks his head up out of the sand, well, that just might have a different effect.
