Josh Hawley Is Planning Something HUGE
(RepublicanJournal.org) – The Department of Justice (DOJ) is supposed to be a fair and unbiased agency, however, many Americans feel it has become a political weapon for the Biden administration to use against its opponents. Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO) recently declared he’s preparing to wage war on the DOJ if Republicans take back the Senate.

The senator disclosed his plans to increase the amount of oversight over the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in an exclusive interview with the Daily Caller News Foundation. The Republican also mentioned other concerns the Senate Judiciary Committee, of which he is a member, needs to focus on, including Attorney General Merrick Garland. Hawley called for the need to have proper oversight over the DOJ while calling the FBI “out of control.”
The Republican discussed Garland’s October 2021 memo calling on the FBI to target parents who opposed critical race theory, gender, and adult curricula in schools. Hawley asserted that Garland was unfit for his role and needed to be removed, calling him the worst attorney general America has ever seen and claiming the head of the DOJ repeatedly misled Congress during hearings with various committees. The senator also blasted the DOJ’s quickness to attack former president Trump while failing to act over threats against Supreme Court justices.
Of course, Hawley’s plan likely won’t be effective if his party fails to flip the Senate, which is currently evenly split with Vice President Kamala Harris breaking the tie.
