Statement from Attorney General Merrick B. Garland [View all]


Statement from Attorney General Merrick B. Garland
Wednesday, June 12, 2024

For Immediate Release
Office of Public Affairs
The Justice Department issued the following statement from Attorney General Merrick B. Garland regarding the U.S. House of Representatives’ vote on H. Res. 1292:

“It is deeply disappointing that this House of Representatives has turned a serious congressional authority into a partisan weapon. Today’s vote disregards the constitutional separation of powers, the Justice Department’s need to protect its investigations, and the substantial amount of information we have provided to the Committees.

I will always stand up for this Department, its employees, and its vital mission to defend our democracy.”
