Shawn Fleetwood of the Federalist ponders the recent record of the U.S. attorney general.

Attorney General Merrick Garland once again reminded the country on Friday why he has never deserved to sit on the U.S. Supreme Court (SCOTUS).

With evidence mounting of Joe Biden’s role in his family’s foreign business ventures, Garland announced the launch of a special counsel investigation into Hunter Biden for purported criminal activity. According to the Biden-appointed attorney general, the investigation will be led by David Weiss, the same U.S. attorney who concocted the now-derailed sweetheart plea agreement granting Hunter — and by default, Joe — immunity from future federal charges.

Unsurprisingly, Garland did not take any questions from reporters following the announcement.

While legacy media will undoubtedly claim Weiss’s appointment is “proof” America doesn’t have a two-tiered justice system, Garland’s launch of a special counsel investigation confirms exactly that. Special counsels aren’t immune from congressional oversight. But don’t be surprised if and when Weiss uses the investigation to stonewall House Republicans’ oversight efforts by trotting out the infamous “I can’t comment on ongoing investigations” line.

The special counsel isn’t just designed to investigate the Bidens; it’s to protect them from future Republican-led inquiries.

Egregious as it is, Friday’s maneuver is hardly the only instance in which Garland has taken overly politicized actions to benefit Democrats. The Biden appointee has regularly abused his powers to protect his political allies and target any American who stands in the way of the left’s authoritarian agenda.

Keep in mind that it was Garland who instructed the FBI to target parents at school board meetings under the false premise they were domestic terrorists. It was also his DOJ that recently attempted to imprison Mark Houck, a Christian father and husband arrested by the FBI, for protecting his son from an angry abortion activist.
