AG Garland’s shocking refusal has set the stage for a major move by Conservative lawmakers

The House Judiciary Committee is not rolling over and letting the Radical Left push them around. And they are doing everything they can to ensure real justice is brought to the Biden family.

And AG Garland’s shocking refusal has set the stage for a major move by Conservative lawmakers.

During a contentious House Judiciary hearing on Tuesday, U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland faced tough questions from Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ) about details in Special Counsel Robert Hur’s report regarding President Joe Biden’s cognitive state.

The line of questioning centered on Hur’s decision not to prosecute Biden, with a key factor being Biden’s portrayal as a “well-meaning elderly man with a poor memory.”

Biggs began his questioning with a direct quote from Hur’s report, emphasizing the sympathetic view Hur had taken of Biden.

“[Hur] basically says here he found Mr. Biden to be sympathetic and … ‘a well-meaning elderly man with a poor memory.’ So he made a prosecutorial decision that he wasn’t going to prosecute. Are you going to dispute that? You’re not disputing that, are you?”

Garland, seemingly prepared for a grilling, responded cautiously, not providing a direct answer.

This prompted Biggs to accuse him of being “non-responsive,” as he sought to clarify the rationale behind the decision not to prosecute Biden.

“Mr. Biden has not been prosecuted, correct?” Biggs pressed. Garland affirmed this fact but offered little else in terms of detailed explanation.

The exchange grew tenser as Biggs continued to probe. He highlighted that the rationale for not prosecuting Biden included his depiction as a sympathetic elderly man with memory issues.

Garland conceded that this characterization was part of a broader list of reasons for the decision but hesitated to delve into specifics.

“Give me one more reason,” Biggs demanded, seeking further clarity on why Biden was not prosecuted.

Garland responded that Biden’s cooperation with the investigation was another factor, though he avoided elaborating further on the contents of Hur’s report or the decision-making process behind it.

The Special Counsel’s interview with Biden, and the subsequent transcript, became a focal point of the hearing.

The transcript, released after Hur’s decision not to prosecute, detailed Biden’s interactions during the investigation.

Hur noted, “We have also considered that, at trial, Mr. Biden would likely present himself to a jury, as he did during our interview of him, as a sympathetic, well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory.”

Hur’s report elaborated on the challenges of securing a conviction, stating, “Based on our direct interactions with and observations of him, he is someone for whom many jurors will want to identify reasonable doubt. It would be difficult to convince a jury that they should convict him — by then a former president well into his eighties — of a serious felony that requires a mental state of willfulness.”

This part of the report has fueled claims that Biden received preferential treatment due to his status and perceived cognitive decline.

During the hearing, Biggs emphasized this point, arguing that the decision not to prosecute Biden based on his memory and age sets a concerning precedent.

Adding to the controversy, Biden has claimed executive privilege over the audio tapes from his interview with Hur.

Reports indicate that the transcript was edited to remove repeated words and filler content from Biden’s testimony, raising further questions about transparency and fairness in the investigation.
