Rep. Cline to Newsmax: GOP Lawyers 'to Press' Garland for Answers

Rep. Ben Cline, R-Va., told Newsmax on Tuesday that the Republican lawyers on the House Judiciary Committee are "not afraid to press" Attorney General Merrick Garland for answers when he testifies before the panel on Wednesday.

"We're going to ask him about this two-tiered system of justice that seems to be emanating from this department," Cline said during an appearance on Newsmax's "The Record with Greta Van Susteren."

"For years, his department has been targeting conservatives - whether it's the president, whether it's parents seeking to exercise their First Amendment rights at school board hearings, whether it's Catholics seeking to exercise their First Amendment right to freedom of religious expression. We get, on the other side, a slow-walk of the Hunter Biden investigation by [U.S. Attorney for Delaware David] Weiss, who was trying to craft a sweetheart deal and happens to be the one that he [Garland] appoints as the special counsel to further that investigation."
