No Surprise Here! DOJ Won’t Pursue Criminal Contempt Changes Against AG Merrick Garland

Not only is it a double standard, but it shows you the nature of the modern American “justice” system.  It constantly renders injustice especially, for those whom that system loves like Attorney General Merrick Garland.  While he was rightly held in contempt, just a previous AG Eric Holder over crimes that originated in his own office that left hundreds, if not thousands dead, nothing is going to happen to him because Congress simply will not impeach him, which they should do (Article II, Section 4 US Constitution) and then prosecute him (Article I, Section 3, Clause 7 US Constitution).  This is why the People should be looking to abolish the federal government or alter it, not support it with more votes and more money, and this is just the tip of our government’s crimes against the People while upholding the wicked.  So, it’s no surprise that the criminal Department of Justice won’t prosecute its top cop.

Tom Ozimek reports at The Epoch Times:

An official from the Department of Justice (DOJ) told House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.) in a letter that Attorney General Merrick Garland will not be prosecuted for contempt of Congress because his refusal to hand over audio recordings of President Joe Biden’s interview with a prosecutor did not amount to a crime.

In the letter, which was obtained by several media outlets, the DOJ official said that Mr. Garland’s refusal to comply with a subpoena demanding audio records of an interview that special counsel Robert Hur conducted with President Biden in his investigation into the president’s alleged mishandling of classified documents “did not constitute a crime.”

“Consistent with this longstanding position and uniform practice, the Department has determined that the responses by Attorney General Garland to the subpoenas issued by the Committees did not constitute a crime, and accordingly the Department will not bring the congressional contempt citation before a grand jury or take any other action to prosecute the Attorney General,” Carlos Felipe Uriarte, an assistant attorney general, wrote in the letter.

The letter also cited DOJ policy not to prosecute officials for contempt of Congress when they don’t comply with subpoenas due to a presidential claim of executive privilege.

A request for comment and confirmation of the content of the letter sent to the DOJ was not immediately returned.
