House Republicans sent Merrick Garland one order that has the White House in hysterics

Biden’s cabinet is crumbling down around him. Their crimes are finally being exposed.

And now House Republicans sent Merrick Garland one order that has the White House in hysterics.

On Tuesday, House Republicans announced that they had subpoenaed Attorney General Merrick Garland for records from special counsel Robert Hur’s investigation into President Joe Biden’s handling of sensitive data, which resulted in a report released earlier this month.

According to a statement from their respective committees, Oversight Chairman James Comer (R-KY) and Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH) have requested data, including transcripts, notes, video, and audio recordings, as part of the subpoena.

The chairs stated in a subpoena cover letter that the Department of Justice (DOJ) failed to disclose any of the sought records, including transcripts and recordings of the special counsel’s two-day interview with the president, by the February 19 deadline.

They wrote that the DOJ responded by saying it was “working to gather and process” responsive documents, including a review for “classification” and “confidentiality interests,” but did not provide a timetable for making any productions or “any commitment that it would produce all of the material requested.”

Comer and Jordan stated that their panels, in collaboration with the Ways and Means Committee, are spearheading an impeachment investigation into Biden, and suspected that the president may have preserved sensitive information pertaining to “specific countries” relating to his facility’s international commercial interests.

They stated that the committees “further seek to understand whether the White House or President Biden’s personal attorneys placed any limitations or scoping restrictions during the interviews” with Hur or Biden’s ghostwriter Mark Zwonitzer, “precluding or addressing any potential statements directly linking President Biden to troublesome foreign payments.”

Comer and Jordan also stated that the Judiciary Committee is seeking materials for its “ongoing oversight of the Department’s commitment to impartial justice and its handling of the investigation and prosecution of President Biden’s presumptive opponent, President Donald J. Trump, in the November 2024 presidential election.”

Hur’s investigation blasted Biden for keeping confidential information after leaving office as a U.S. senator and subsequently vice president.

Although Hur did not suggest charges, the 388-page report stated that Biden had memory issues that would likely prevent a jury from convicting the president.

Biden responded to the report with statements at the White House, maintaining that his memory “is fine” just moments before wrongly referring to Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi as the president of Mexico while discussing Israel’s struggle against Hamas in the Gaza Strip.

The president also reacted to Hur’s claim in the story that Biden struggled to recall when his son Beau died of brain cancer, saying, “How in the hell can he raise that.”

“Frankly, when I was asked the question, I thought it was none of their d*mn business.”

According to NBC News, Hur did not ask Biden about Beau, who died of brain cancer in 2015, but the president mentioned his son’s death.

Sources also said that Biden got the day and month of Beau’s death right, but not the year. The younger Biden passed away on May 30, 2015, at the age of 46.

Hur may speak in Congress in the coming weeks.

When questioned two weeks ago about releasing the transcript of Biden’s interview with Hur, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre referred journalists to White House lawyers.
