Skip to comments.AG Garland denies Biden is being treated better than Trump in classified document probes

Attorney General Merrick Garland on Monday pushed back on criticism that the Justice Department is treating President Biden more favorably than former President Donald Trump as the government investigates their mishandling of classified documents.
“The department has a set of norms and practices,” Garland said, answering media questions on the federal probe into the 80-year-old president for the first time. “These mean, among other things, that we do not have different rules for Democrats or Republicans, different rules for the powerful or powerless, different rules for the rich or poor.”
Garland’s comments came during a meeting of the DOJ’s reproductive rights task force.
He answered questions about how he would respond to those who argue Biden has been treated better than 76-year-old Trump, and whether appointing a special counsel to investigate both cases was “good for the country.”
“We apply the facts and the law in each case in a neutral and nonpartisan manner,” Garland said. “That is what we always do, and that is what we do in the matters you are referring to.”
“The role of the Justice Department is to apply the facts and the law in each case in a nonpartisan and neutral way without regard to who the subjects are,” Garland said about appointing Robert Hur as special counsel in the Biden document probe and Jack Smith as special counsel in the Trump case. “That is what we have done in each of these cases and what we will continue to do.”

He lies with impunity right to our faces.
Then where is the pre-dawn raid on Joe’s home? With a CNN camera crew broadcasting live?
Garland can deny all he wants but facts are facts. It doesn’t take a genius to see the difference. Lying POS is what Merrick is.....
I guess I missed the armed raid on joe’s home ...
War is peace.
This Obama deep state needs to be unraveled with some serious jail time for these imbeds.
And to imagine this dirtbag almost sat on the Supreme Court.
Who had their home raided? A flat out lie.
Maybe he’s right?, I’ll go check to see if CNN is filming LIVE while the FBI Raids all of Joe’s properties...
A giant daily dose of middle finger. Bragging too.
No one willing to search through Dr. Jill’s frillies?
Dude’s a worm.
Rush would do a juxtaposition, where either he (Rush) would go down a list of the things that were done to Trump vs. the things that were done to Biden, and then after each comparison he's play a recording of Garland denying that there's any difference in the way they're being treated.
Of course, if PDJT was treated as a normal Republican President by other members of his party, Rush wouldn't have to read off the differences himself. There's be a Republican member of Congress, or Senator, reading them off during a committee hearing, or in a press conference, that could be played opposite Garland's obviously nonsensical denials.
But we know that won't happen in President Trump's case.
It’s enough to make most men shudder at the thought.
That’s like Hitler saying he’s not treating the Jews any different than the rest of his concentration camp prisoners.
Well, whaddya expect the wholly owned Deep State scumbag to say???
