On Tuesday, US Attorney General Merrick Garland is testifying before the House Judiciary Committee as representatives conducted oversight of the U.S. Department of Justice.

Garland testified regarding the Biden regime’s weaponization of the Department of Justice. GOP Rep. Matt Gaetz (FL) questioned Garland about Judge Merchan and DOJ official Matthew Colangelo.

According to The New York Post, Judge Merchan’s daughter, Loren Merchan, helped Democrats raise $93 million from her father’s case against President Trump. Bragg’s top prosecutor, Matthew Colangelo, a Biden appointee and lifelong left-wing activist, previously worked in the Justice Department.

In a tense exchange, Garland denied allegations that he dispatched Colangelo to assist Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg in prosecuting Trump. “That is false. I didn’t dispatch Matthew Colangelo. That’s false,” Garland stated.

“He made this remarkable downstream career journey from the DOJ in Washington DC and then pops up in Alvin Bragg’s office to get Trump,” Gaetz said.

Garland responded, “I assume he applied for a job there and got the job. I had nothing to do with it.”


Rep. Gaetz called Garland’s bluff, challenging the attorney general to produce documents on all correspondence between his office, Bragg’s office, New York Attorney General Letitia James, and Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis.

“If you make a request for documents, we’ll refer it to our Office of Legislative Affairs and it will respond appropriately,” Garland replied.

Gaetz shot back, “Here’s the thing: You come in here and you launch this attack that it’s a conspiracy theory to allege that there is coordinated lawfare against Trump, and then when we say ‘fine,’ just give us the documents, give us the correspondence, and then if it’s a conspiracy theory that will be evident. But when you say ‘Well, we’ll take your request and then we’ll sort of work it through the DOJ’s accommodation process,’ then you’re actually advancing the very dangerous conspiracy theory that you’re concerned about.”

Chairman Jordan has invited Avin Bragg and Matthew Colangelo to testify on June 13 at 10 am.
