GARLAND: “I don't know the answer to that question.”

It’s pretty obvious that Merrick Garland’s from the game plan from the very beginning has been to do whatever the hell he wanted and play dumb or clutch his pearls when Congress calls him on it.
We’ve got recent Congressional testimony that there were many people with a connection to federal law enforcement at the J6 riot… so many that the feds ‘lost count’.
The FBI had so many paid informants at the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, that it lost track of the number and had to perform a later audit to determine exactly how many “Confidential Human Sources” run by different FBI field offices were present that day, a former assistant director of the bureau has told lawmakers.
At least one informant was communicating with his FBI handler as he entered the Capitol, according to Steven D’Antuono, formerly in charge of the bureau’s Washington field office.
D’Antuono has testified behind closed doors to the House Judiciary Committee that his office was aware before the riot that some of their informants would attend a “Stop the Steal” rally thrown by former President Donald Trump, but he only learned after the fact that informants run by other field offices also were present, along with others who had participated of their own accord. — NYPost
AG Garland has been ducking questions on this issue forever.
But the whistleblowers are adding up — and the DOJ was finally shamed into slapping the wrists of Ray Epps.
The Biden admin has been working really hard to obstruct. But now that an impeachment investigation has been opened, it will get harder for them to rope-a-dope these questions.
If nothing else — the public will know more about what’s going on than the press has been willing to tell them.
