With Sen. Menendez's recent charges, it's clear that the DOJ understands what a bribery case is. Now, it'll be interesting to see how Joe Biden's impeachment inquiry unfolds parallel to it. There are a lot of similarities between the two cases, but the DOJ doesn't seem curious about evidence from the Biden family.
Merrick Garland did not appear honest in front of Congress, every step of the way he confirmed the two-tier justice we see everywhere. It pretty obvious he understand what the mission of the DOJ is but chooses to play politics and help the President get himself out of trouble instead.
Merrick Garland was not truthful in front of Congress today. It's clear that the DOJ has been trying to run out the clock with the Hunter Biden investigation while they simultaneously throw the book at Donald Trump. Now that it's blown up in their face, Merrick Garland is left trying to square a circle in his testimony.
Although I don't believe we'll get much from the questioning of Merrick Garland, there are many questions about the DOJ he needs to answer for. Why are they throwing the book at Donald Trump and using a minimalist approach with Joe and Hunter Biden? Congress needs to address two-tier justice at the DOJ.
