Sen. Chuck Grassley, ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, is urging Attorney General Merrick Garland to investigate potential ties to Hunter Biden within the Department of Justice. According to Grassley, Garland has refused to even respond to multiple congressional oversight requests.
“As I say to many nominees, either you run the Department or the Department runs you. Right now, it looks like the Justice Department is running Attorney General Garland,” Grassley said. “I voted to confirm the Attorney General. I had high hopes he would follow through on his public statements of ridding the Department of political infection. Instead, I fear he’s taking the Justice Department to new politically-charged heights. To date, I haven’t received a full and complete response to a single oversight request from the Biden Justice Department.”
The primary issue at hand is a request Grassley, along with Sen. Johnson, R-WI, made twice this year about Nicholas McQuaid, who is acting assistant attorney general.
