“This is the Definition of Corruption” — AG Merrick Garland is Now Calling GOP Lawmakers, Coercing Them Not to Vote for ‘Inherent Contempt’

GOP Rep. Anna Paulina Luna said last week that she will bring force an inherent contempt vote to the House floor after the DOJ declined to prosecute US Attorney General Merrick Garland.

“Under inherent contempt proceedings, the House or Senate has its Sergeant-At-Arms, or deputy, take a person into custody for proceedings to be held in Congress,” according to the National Constitution Center.

The Justice Department won’t prosecute Merrick Garland for contempt of Congress over the Biden audio tapes.

In a letter to House Speaker Mike Johnson on Friday, the department said, “The department has determined that the responses by Attorney General Garland to the subpoenas issued by the committees did not constitute a crime, and accordingly the department will not bring the congressional contempt citation before a grand jury or take any other action to prosecute the Attorney General.”

“The DOJ is not above the law. Garland is not above the law. Inherent contempt will be called up and brought to the floor,” Anna Paulina Luna said.

“I already filed the resolution and I will be calling up the vote,” Rep. Anna Paulina Luna said on Friday afternoon.

Senior Congressional Correspondent for Fox News Chard Pergram wrote, “Fox is told that Democrats would likely move to table or kill the resolution to hold Garland in “inherent contempt.” Thus, the vote is one step removed from an actual up/down vote on inherent contempt. If the House moves to the table, the issue is dead. However, if the House rejects tabling the measure, it proceeds to hold a vote on actual inherent contempt. Fox is told that Garland has reached out to moderate Republicans, pushing them to reject inherent contempt.”

In a series of explosive posts, Rep. Anna Paulina Luna has launched a scathing attack on Attorney General Merrick Garland.

Reports are emerging that Garland is personally reaching out to moderate Republicans, urging them to vote against holding him in ‘inherent contempt.’

Rep. Luna wrote:

“It’s being reported Garland is CALLING moderate Republicans asking them to vote against holding him in inherent contempt. Garland, you can make this all go away by handing over the tapes. You’re willfully ignoring congressional issued subpoenas…

Garland is now calling Republican members of congress pressuring them to NOT vote for inherent contempt. This is the definition of corruption. He thinks he is above the law and can tell members of congress what to do.

Why is Garland fighting so hard to hide the tapes? What is on the tapes that is causing him to behave in criminal fashion in an effort to protect Biden? Any other American would be in jail for doing what he is doing.

Garland, release the tapes to Congress and allow us to listen to them.

Garland, why don’t you give me call as well. You should have my cell phone number. I’d like to hear your pitch on why you think you should not be held accountable?”
