Users on various social media platforms have stated their disagreement with the remark that “the same laws are administered to everyone” by the United States Department of Justice, which was made by United States Attorney General Merrick Garland during a recent hearing. Garland said that the Department of Justice in the United States applies “the same laws to everyone.”
On Wednesday, notable individuals who are opposed to Vice President Joe Biden’s administration criticized the allegations that were made by Garland, calling them “bulls—” and claiming that “no serious person believes” them.
Garland was referred to by several of the other people as a “straight up liar.”
During her lengthy appearance before the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday, during which she spoke for a number of hours, Garland made this statement. Congress conducted the cross-examination of Garland as part of its investigation into the claims of politicization of the Department of Justice (DOJ) during the duration of the Biden administration. This investigation is being done as part of its investigation into the allegations of politicization of the DOJ.
After the evidence of IRS whistleblowers before Congress, which revealed that prosecution judgements made throughout the years-long federal investigation on first son Hunter Biden were swayed by politics, Garland made his charge. This accusation followed the testimony of IRS whistleblowers before Congress. This is what prompted Garland to make his accusation in the first place.
During the course of the hearing, Garland said that all Americans who were the target of an investigation by the Department of Justice were subject to the same laws, and that there had been no politics or prejudice at the agency while he was in charge of it. Garland’s statements were in response to a question about whether or not the agency had been exposed to any biases.
During one point in the meeting, the committee questioned him, and he responded by saying, “Our job is to uphold the rule of law.” This suggests that the identical legal requirements must be met by each and every person. There is not one set of laws for powerful people and another set of laws for powerless people, one set of laws for the wealthy and another set for the poor, one set of laws for Democrats and another set for Republicans, or separate rules based on one’s race, ethnicity, or religion. “There is not one set of laws for powerful people and another set of laws for powerless people.”
The next thing that Garland said was, “It is our responsibility to pursue justice without fear or favor.” Our duty does not require us to behave in a way that is seen to be politically expedient. We are not obligated to take orders from the President, from Congress, or from anyone else on who or what should be the focus of a criminal investigation. This is because it is not within the scope of our responsibilities.
The charge that the attorney general leveled against the past administration on Wednesday comes in the wake of persistent allegations leveled by former President Donald Trump and others that the Department of Justice under the administration of Joe Biden has been weaponized against Trump. These allegations include the FBI’s raid on Mar-a-Lago, which culminated in Trump being charged on federal charges for allegedly conspiring to conceal sensitive materials at the Florida property. The indictment relates to the alleged scheme to conceal classified data. The assertion that the Attorney General made on Wednesday appears to be a response to these allegations.
In addition, conservatives have leveled criticism at Garland for the FBI’s purported use of aggressive investigative techniques aimed at traditional Catholic communities and for the purported disparity in the Department of Justice’s treatment of rioters on January 6 and BLM/Antifa rioters beginning in the summer of 2020. Both of these issues have been brought up as criticisms of Garland by conservatives. There have been claims made about both of these occurrences.
After years of accusations against the Biden Department of Justice that were identical to these, conservatives on X, which was then known as Twitter, did not trust Garland’s words.
The following remark was made by Kambree, who is both an influencer on the conservative movement and an ambassador for Turning Point USA: “Someone needs to fact-check this, stat.”
Leo Terrell, a contributor to Fox News, was one of the individuals who voiced their disapproval of Garland’s testimony by posting the text “YOU ARE WATCHING A LIAR!”
It was said that the Hodge Twins, who are known for their conservative comments, said something along the lines of “Dude is a straight-up liar.”
A clever statement was made by an attorney for civil rights named Harmeet Dhillon, who said, “Need Pinocchio meme stat.”
According to the “Nuance Bro” producer, who is notorious for producing conservative propaganda, “no serious person believes this.”
According to the official narrative maintained by the Republican Party in the House Judiciary, “No one believes him.”
A political figure with significant power named Natalie Danelishen also provided feedback, saying, “Bulls—. What you are stating is not credible to us in any way!
There was a request for comment that was addressed to the Department of Justice; however, there was no immediate response.
