Rep. Jim Jordan ripped into Attorney General Merrick Garland today during a House Judiciary Committee hearing
He called Garland out on the National School Board Association’s directive inferring that parents are “domestic terrorists” and then Garland’s memo calling on the FBI to investigate.
Jordan: “Did you discuss it with the White House”
Garland: “I did not… The WH is perfectly appropriately concerned about violence.”
Jordan: Did you or anyone at DOJ help the NSBA write the letter. Garland: I did not and I don’t know.
Jordan: “Will FBI agents be attending local school board meetings?”
Jordan: You said you’re not treating parents as domestic terrorists but the DOJ press release accompanying your memo says the national security division will be targeting school board meetings.
Stephen Miller called Garland’s comments “disturbing”:
Everyone needs to go back and watch @Jim_Jordan question AG Garland on the Oct 4 Memo siccing the FBI on parents who object to CRT. Garland’s answers are deeply disturbing, raising the specter of potentially profound political interference at DOJ by WH & pro-CRT teachers’ unions.
