U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland said his new Justice Department is focusing on five American cities to tackle illegal gun trafficking. On Thursday, while in Chicago, the official announced he’s sending gun trafficking strike forces to the Democrat-led cities of Chicago, Los Angeles, New York City, San Francisco and Washington D.C.
Democrats claim they are furious about the turmoil at the U.S. Capitol and are applauding the related indictments. In 2014, however, Joe Biden’s attorney general nominee Merrick Garland agreed to quash an arrest warrant and dismiss an indictment of a violent leftist who bombed the Senate Chambers in the 1980’s. One America’s Richard Pollock spoke with Paul Kamenar of The National Legal and Policy Center about this hypocrisy and has more from Washington.
