Merrick Garland Grilled On Loudoun Case, Says He ‘Doesn’t Know’ About Alleged Sex Assault

Republican leader Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) grilled Attorney General Merrick Garland during a House Oversight Committee hearing on Department of Justice procedures Thursday, demanding to know whether the DOJ is investigating the alleged sexual assault in Loudoun County schools — revealed in a Daily Wire exclusive report — given that a National School Board Association (NSBA) letter referenced the father in that case, Scott Smith, directly.
Garland was, ostensibly, in front of the House committee to discuss the January 6th Capitol Riot, but Republicans took the opportunity to interrogate the attorney general over the NSBA letter that suggested parent complaints at school board meetings could rise to the level of “domestic terrorism” or a “hate crime,” a subsequent DOJ letter directing the FBI to investigate such confrontations, and, specifically, on the sex assault case in Loudoun County.
Rep. Steve Chabot (R-OH) kicked off the interrogation, demanding that Garland address the DOJ memo.
Chabot said he “found it deeply disturbing that the National School Boards Association convinced the Biden administration to sic you and your Justice Department, the FBI … on involved parents as if they were domestic terrorists.”
“I can tell you, not in a million years did we dream that one day we would see the Justice Department treat American parents as domestic terrorists,” Chabot said.  “No one has the right to be violent or threaten violence … but we don’t need the vast power of the federal government throwing its weight around.”
