Rep. Anna Paulina Luna vowed to force a vote on Merrick Garland’s arrest if the Justice Department does not act on a contempt resolution.

Last month, two GOP-led House committees passed resolutions recommending that U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland be held in contempt of Congress for refusing to provide audio recordings of Biden’s interview with Special Counsel Robert Hur.

According to investigative journalist Paul Sperry, Garland has reportedly “classified at the highest level” the audio tapes of Biden’s interview with Special Counsel Hur, locking them away in a Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility (SCIF).

The full House of Representatives will vote on holding Garland in contempt on Wednesday.

Rep. Anna Paulina Luna expressed her lack of confidence in Biden’s DOJ and stated she is prepared to force a vote on Merrick Garland’s arrest.

From Fox News:

Rep. Anna Paulina Luna, R-Fla., is vowing to force a vote on Attorney General Merrick Garland’s arrest if the Department of Justice (DOJ) fails to act on a criminal contempt resolution backed by House GOP leaders.

Luna told Fox News Digital on Tuesday evening that she would plan to force a vote on her “inherent contempt” resolution against Garland after the full House of Representatives weighs the Biden official’s fate with a separate measure.

“As of right now, we fully intend to bring it,” Luna revealed. “I don’t really have much faith in the Department of Justice. And I don’t think the American people do either. But we are trying to bring back a level playing field and show that, you know, there should be accountability all the way up to the top.”

Last month, Anna Paulina Luna revealed that she studied the House Rule Book & Manual while on maternity leave and learned about some powers the House of Representatives possesses to hold individuals accountable.

These powers are known as the Inherent Contempt of Congress Powers.

With these powers, the Speaker Mike Johnson can direct the Sergeant at Arms, or his deputy, to arrest anyone who defies a congressional subpoena.
