Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) has stated that they are not going to rule out the pursuit of impeachment of U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland in the wake of the midterm elections if Republicans manage to get a House majority.
Due to being next in line to lead the House Judiciary Committee if the GOP takes a victory in the 2022 midterms, Jordan outlined that there are two avenues for possible impeachment, primarily Garland’s inaction concerning the protests outside the private residences of the more conservative justices of the U.S. Supreme Court and the various attacks against pro-life clinics, and the idea that he has potentially coordinated with Left-wing groups that are against parents protesting school curricula while attending school board meetings, stated a report from The Washington Free Beacon.
“That’ll be a decision that will be made by the entire conference,” stated Jordan to the outlet as part of an interview that was officially published on Monday.
“The key question we would like to find out, if in fact the American people put us in control, is was this similar to what happened with parents at school board meetings?” posited the Republican legislator. “In other words, was the Biden White House working with some outside left wing influence groups, and also then communicating that information to the DOJ?”
Many pro-abortion activists have taken up signs around the private residences of justices Clarence Thomas, Amy Coney Barrett, and Brett Kavanaugh.
In an extremely serious case, one protester, Nicholas John Roske, was hit with a charge of attempted murder when he tried to infiltrate the residence of Justice Kavanaugh.
The heavily armed 26-year-old traveled all the way from California in order to make to Kavanaugh’s home with the intent to murder the conservative justice so he could not cast a vote on any rulings about abortion or the Second Amendment cases, alleged officials within the Department of Justice via a press release.
“According to the one-count indictment and other court documents, on June 8, 2022, Roske intended to kill an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court,” stated the DOJ. “Court documents alleges that Roske traveled from California to Maryland, intending to kill the Supreme Court Justice, arriving at the residence of a current Justice of the Supreme Court in the early morning hours of June 8, 2022.”
It was highlighted by The Washington Free Beacon that is still a federal crime to carry out demonstrations outside the home of a judge with the intent to influence their choices. While Roske has been charged, the issued report stated that there have yet to be any actions taken against the protesters gathers outside the private residences of the justices.
When speaking about the other possible front for impeachment, the DOJ potentially targeted parents who were against the extreme leftist curricula throughout school board meetings on behalf of the National School Boards Association.
Those at the NSBA issued a letter attempting to pressure Biden’s administration in order to urge them to crack down on “threats of violence and acts of intimidation” at local school board meetings, going on to state that the Patriot Act could be utilized to look into any “acts of malice, violence and threats against public school officials,” which the group claimed, “could be the equivalent to a form of domestic terrorism and hate crimes.”
Just a few days later, Garland officially stated that he was sending in the FBI to look into “harassment, intimidation, and threats of violence” targeting school board members.
