Merrick Garland sat before Congress and the American people and swore the DOJ would not be politicized.
After turning the FBI loose on parents upset at the curriculum being taught in schools, Senator Hawley (R-MO) is now calling for polarizing AG to resign.
Time to Go
We have all seen the videos of parents being upset at school board meetings.
While they have been rightfully angry, it was nowhere near the point of being considered “domestic terrorism,” as the NSBA claimed when it penned a letter to the Attorney General.
That letter, however, not actual data or intelligence, led to Attorney General Merrick Garland tasking the FBI with investigating parents on this front.
According to Senator Hawley, this was nothing short of an act of intimidation by the DOJ to try to silence parents to cower to this new woke agenda by teachers…
Merrick Garland mobilized the FBI to intimidate parents without legal basis and, we now know, premised on misinformation he didn’t bother to verify. It was a dangerous abuse of authority that has badly compromised the Justice Dept’s integrity and Garland’s. He should resign. https://t.co/MXKN5j0L5g

This is far from the first time that Hawley has rung the bell regarding Garland’s behavior.
Earlier in October, Hawley had stated, “I think parents across this country are going to be stunned to learn — stunned — that if they show up at a local school board meeting, where they have the right to vote, and you are attempting to intimidate them, you are attempting to silence them, you are attempting to interfere with their rights as parents and, yes, with their rights as voters.
“This is wrong. This is dangerous.
“And I cannot believe that an attorney general of the United States is engaging in this kind of conduct.”
Since the NSBA retracted its characterization of parents, other Republicans have been calling for Garland to rescind his order…

However, there has been no action on Garland’s part to do so.
He is proving to be nothing more than a Biden lackey, as Garland is clearly taking his orders from the White House and he must resign or be impeached from office.
