Attorney General Merrick Garland is completely out of control.
He’s the top political hatchet man for the Democrats.
And a leading Republican called out Merrick Garland over this scheme to save Nancy Pelosi.
Democrats got the upper hand in the 2020 election after they used the pandemic as cover to undermine election integrity.
Now President Joe Biden is trying to give Democrats the edge in the Midterm elections with an executive order he issued in 2021.
Last March, Biden issued an executive order instructing federal agencies to develop a plan to “promote voter registration and voter participation.”
This was a blatant attempt at using the power of the federal government to drive up election turnout for Democrats.
The heads of each agency were supposed to submit their plans to Biden domestic policy advisor Susan Rice.
Federal agencies were also directed by Biden’s executive order to work with left-wing activist groups to run voter registration drives on federal property.
Attorney General Merrick Garland’s Justice Department is one of the federal agencies participating in the scheme.
The conservative think tank Foundation for Government Accountability (FGA) filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request with the Justice Department about its work on the executive order.
Garland is ignoring the law by stonewalling the FOIA request by the FGA.
Ralph Norman (R-SC) is trying to get to the bottom of the rogue Justice Department’s role in carrying out Biden’s election scheme.
He called Biden’s scheme unconstitutional because the President doesn’t have the power to “transform all federal executive agencies led by his political appointees, including the DOJ, into get-out-the-vote machines for the Left, paid for by federal taxpayers.”
He sent a letter to Merrick Garland demanding answers on why he’s ignoring the FOIA request by the FGA.
“The U.S. Constitution makes it clear that states must manage their own elections, without meddling by the federal government,” Norman told the Epoch Times.
Biden is usurping the Constitutional power of the states in an attempt to boost Democrat turnout.
“We’re looking at a Department of Justice that appears to be overstepping that Constitutional boundary at the direction of President Biden, and then deliberately defying court orders,” Norman said. “Add that to the list of problems we have with the DOJ.”
In July, a federal district court ruled that the Justice Department had to comply with the FOIA request.
But Garland is ignoring the law.
The Biden regime should “keep their hands out of our election process” and promote election integrity so that it’s “easier for citizens to vote, and harder to cheat,” Norman explained.
“The DOJ’s reputation with public trust is already minimal at best. What would the DOJ have to gain from hiding their plan to promote voter participation from the public?” Norman wrote in the letter.
Merrick Garland has gone completely rogue by ignoring the law to keep his latest move to help Democrats from being exposed.
