Jim Jordan Overrules Merrick Garland, Tells DOJ Officials to Exercise ‘Your Rights as Whistleblowers’

Republican Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) has overruled Merrick Garland telling FBI and Department of Justice officials to ignore the attorney general’s guidance Garland and come forward as whistleblowers.

Jordan’s comments come in response to AG Garland reportedly issuing officials with a warning about speaking to members of Congress.

Garland sent a memo to Justice Department personnel reminding them of the DOJ’s policy of prohibiting communication with members of Congress.

The attorney general’s memo said all communication with Congress must be handled by the Office of Legislative Affairs (OLA) and that “no department employee may communicate with Senators, Representatives, congressional committees, or congressional staff without advance coordination, consultation, and approval by OLA.

“All congressional inquiries and correspondence from Members, committees, and staff should be immediately directed to OLA upon receipt.”

Garland continued saying the policies are in place to protect the DOJ’s “criminal and civil law enforcement decisions, and its legal judgments, from partisan or other inappropriate influences, whether real or perceived, direct or indict.”

He added that the policies are not “intended to conflict with or limit whistleblower protections.”

This comes after whistleblowers dropped the dime on the political bias at the DOJ to Republican members of Congress.

As Slay News previously reported, Tim Thibault, an assistant special agent, retired over allegations he helped bury Hunter Biden’s laptop story.

“He firmly believes that any investigation will conclude that his supervision, leadership, and decision making were not impacted by political bias or partisanship of any kind,” Thibault’s lawyer said.

“He is confident that all of his decisions were consistent with the FBI’s highest standards for ethics and integrity.”
