Talk about looking like a complete fool. That was Attorney General Merrick Garland on Wednesday afternoon, while testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee.
In other words, Texas conservative Ted Cruz caught a body.
Cruz absolutely murdered Garland for the entire nation to see. And Garland was completely helpless.
From Fox News:
Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, hammered Attorney General Merrick Garland Wednesday during a Senate hearing, accusing the chief law officer of engaging in political affairs after he failed to do research and issued an “abusive” memorandum instructing the Department of Justice to investigate parents who have threatened school board members.
“There is a difference between law and politics, and General Garland, you know the difference between law and politics,” Cruz said to Garland. “Law is based on facts. It is impartial. It is not used as a tool of political retribution. This memo was not law. This memo was politics.”
Garland’s Oct. 4 memo was issued after the Biden administration received a letter from the National School Boards Association (NSBA) that claimed some parental behavior may amount to domestic terrorism. The NSBA has since issued an apology for that letter, saying, “There was no justification for some of the language included in the letter.”
Remember when Cruz mentioned the “Nazi salute” in the video above? Check out how the liberal cowards at The Daily Beast framed that one…
In other words, The Daily Beast had nothing of substance of which to write. Therefore, they pulled something from nothing (despite knowing exactly what Ted meant).
