Republican Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) called out Attorney General Merrick Garland during the Senate Judiciary Committee hearings on the “weaponization” of the Department of Justice (DOJ) by the Biden administration.
At one point Cruz confronted AG Garland on the discrepancy between prosecuting pro-life counselors vs. pro-abortion extremists. Garland turned into a wise guy and asked if Cruz had “any information” on violent pro-abortion extremists attacking pregnancy centers. Cruz then grilled Garland on protecting Supreme Court Justices from unruly mobs.
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.”

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.”

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.
