Attorney General Merrick Garland said in an interview that he would resign if asked by President Joe Biden to take action against Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump.

While noting the unlikelihood that he would be put in such a position AG Garland told “60 Minutes” that he would not personally take action against the former president. The Justice Department has indicted Trump on charges relating to his effort to overturn the 2020 election and wrongly keeping classified documents after leaving office.

“I am sure that that will not happen, but I would not do anything in that regard,” he said on CBS “60 Minutes.” “And if necessary, I would resign. But there is no sense that anything like that will happen.”

Garland has largely kept silent about the cases and reiterated Sunday he would not get into specifics, but dismissed claims by Trump and his supporters that the cases were timed to ruin his chances to be president in 2024.

“Well, that’s absolutely not true. Justice Department prosecutors are nonpartisan. They don’t allow partisan considerations to play any role in their determinations,” Garland said.

“We do not have one rule for Republicans and another rule for Democrats. We don’t have one rule for foes and another for friends,” he said. ”We have only one rule; and that one rule is that we follow the facts and the law, and we reach the decisions required by the Constitution, and we protect civil liberties.”

  1. Everyone in this current administration is a pathological liar. Whatever they say is the complete inversion of the truth.

    Garland said: “We do not have one rule for Republicans and another rule for Democrats”
    I think it’s more than obvious that we do, Merrick! The rest of his statement doesn’t come close to reality.

    Come judgment day, Biden and his cronies are going to be quite sorry for the wrongs they’ve done, but it’ll be too late to do anything about it then.

  2. Who does Garland think he is and who does he think will believe his trashy scumbag lies? I mean c’mon, you people are like the rest of the globalist, lefty, demonrat low life scum that inhabits this earth. The justice dept. is nonpartisan? Say what? The justice department has only one rule for both sides? Say what? You honor the constitution? Say what? Stop you’re chronic lying you corrupt little mouse.

  3. Who does Garland think he is and who does he think will listen and believe his corrupt trashy lies? Hey c’mon, you are just like the stupid globalists, lefty, demonrat low life scumbags that inhabit this earth. Your department is nonpartisan? Say what? Your department has only one rule of law for both sides? Say what? You and your corrupt department believes and honors the constitution? Say what? Shut up, you tiny little mouse. Stop your chronic lying you piece of _hit.
