Rep. Steube to Newsmax: AG Garland Shows ‘Politicization’ of DOJ Under Biden

Rep. Greg Steube, R-Fla., told Newsmax Friday that Thursday’s testimony of Attorney General Merrick Garland in front of the House Judiciary Committee shows ”the politicization” of the Department of Justice under President Joe Biden.

Steube asked Garland to explain the difference between what happened at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6 and a protest Oct. 14 at the Department of the Interior building in Washington, D.C., where environmentalists forced their way into the building, injuring officers, and protesters.

”It’s clear that you feel very strongly about using the full force of your position to prosecute those involved in the Jan. 6 protests, (while) just last week, on Oct. 14, a group of extremists, environmental and indigenous protesters forced their way into the Department of Interior,” Steube said during the hearing Thursday. ”Do you believe that these environmental extremists who forced their way into the Department of Interior are also domestic terrorists?”
