Ted Cruz Destroys Merrick Garland during Congressional Grilling

Republican Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) tore Attorney General Merrick Garland to shreds during a grilling before the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Cruz destroyed Garland during Wednesday’s testimony on Capitol Hill.

Garland was called to testify before the Committee to answer questions regarding the Biden administration’s “weaponization” of the Department of Justice (DOJ).

Cruz laid into Democrat President Joe Biden’s attorney general for ignoring credible threats against Supreme Court justices.

SCOTUS justices became targets of violent leftists surrounding the decision to overturn Roe vs. Wade, which granted a constitutional right to abortion.

WATCH:

TRANSCRIPT: 

Sen. Cruz: Let me try again. Have you — has the Department of Justice brought even a single case under this statute? It’s a yes-no question. It’s not a give a speech on the other things you did.

AG Garland: The job of the United States Marshals is to defend the lives of the…

Cruz: So the answer is “no.”

Garland:  …is to defend the lives of the justices and that’s their number one priority. They have…

Cruz: Why are you unwilling to say “no”? The answer’s “no.” You know it’s “no,” I know it’s “no,” everyone in this hearing room knows it’s “no.” You’re not willing to answer a question: Have you brought a case under this statute? Yes or no?

Garland: As far as I know we haven’t, and what we have done is defended the lives of the justices with over 70 U.S. Marshals.

Sens. Mike Lee (R-UT) and Josh Hawley (R-MO) also grilled Garland over the FBI’s raid of pro-life advocate Matt Houck.

Federal agents entered Houck’s home with guns drawn in front of his children.

They then before arresting Houck for allegedly shoving an abortion clinic worker – a charge he was acquitted of.

Houck now plans to sue the FBI over the ordeal.

“DOJ has announced charges against 34 individuals for blocking access to…abortion clinics…there have been over 81 reported attacks on pregnancy centers…and only 2 individuals have been charged!” Lee blasted.

Garland stammered and he struggled to answer.

Meanwhile, Hawley cited a January FBI memo that advised the agency to infiltrate groups of Roman Catholics.

As Slay News reported, the FBI claimed the groups were “at risk of committing acts of extremist violence.”

The memo claimed that Catholics “characterized by the rejection of the Second Vatican Council” are prone to embracing “anti-Semitic, anti-immigrant, anti-LGBTQ and white supremacist ideology.”

Cruz then jumped back into the ring, slamming Garland over the discrepancy between the prosecution of pro-life vs. pro-abortion extremists.
