Sen. Blackburn to Newsmax: AG Garland ‘Inappropriate’ at Senate Hearing

Attorney General Merrick Garland’s actions before members of the Senate Judiciary Committee were “inappropriate,” and he was not prepared to give adequate answers to what in many cases were just yes-or-no questions, Sen. Marsha Blackburn said on Newsmax Thursday. 

“Whether it was dealing with the DOJ (Department of Justice) memo against parents of schoolchildren, the issues with China, the border, or the Durham report, his answers were incomplete,” the Tennessee Republican said on Newsmax’s “John Bachman Now.” “It was inappropriate. He was not prepared. He has a responsibility to come to answer to the Senate Judiciary Committee, and he didn’t do a very complete job of it yesterday.”

Blackburn added that she simply asked him if he had signed a memo directing the FBI and U.S. attorneys to handle cases involving parents at school board meetings in response to a since-rescinded letter from the National School Boards Association which described them as being “domestic terrorists.”
