Jim Jordan Calls Out Merrick Garland: ‘Even with the Face-Saving Indictment of Hunter Biden, Everyone Knows the Fix Is In’

Republican Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) dropped the hammer on Attorney General Merrick Garland during a contentious congressional hearing today.

During the Wednesday hearing, Garland looked lost and confused under questioning from Republicans.

At one point, Jordan accused Garland of colluding with Democrat President Joe Biden to protect his son Hunter.

As Slay News reported, Hunter Biden was indicted last week on federal gun-related charges.

However, many have argued that the move is just to give the appearance of fairness as the weaponized Department of Justice (DOJ) targets President Donald Trump and his allies with politically motivated cases.

“The fix is in,” Jordan said during the hearing.

“Even with the face-saving indictment last week of Hunter Biden, everyone knows the fix is in.”


Garland responded by claiming that he did not interfere with the Hunter Biden probe:

“I promised the Senate when I came before it for confirmation that I would leave [Special Counsel David] Weiss in place and that I would not interfere with his investigation.

“I’m not going to get into the internal deliberations of the department, I made clear that if Weiss wanted to bring a case in any jurisdiction, he would be able to do that.

“We will not be intimidated,” Garland said.

“We will do our jobs free from outside interference.

“And we will not back down from defending our democracy.”

Jordan fired back:

“You said David Weiss had complete authority, but he’d already been turned down.

“He wanted to bring an action in D.C. and the US Attorney there said, ‘No, you can’t!’

“And then you go tell the U.S. Senate, under oath, that he has complete authority?!”
