Republican Tom Cotton Slams AG Merrick Garland To His Face: ‘You Should Resign In Disgrace’ (VIDEO)

Attorney General Merrick Garland appeared before the Senate Judiciary Committee this week and had to answer some tough questions from Republicans.

One of the issues that came up repeatedly was the use of the FBI to go after parents who were speaking out at school board meetings.

Senator Tom Cotton of Arkansas went after Garland furiously and told him he should resign.

Appearing on C-SPAN, Cotton said, leering at Garland, ”You should resign in disgrace, judge.”

Moments before the remark, Cotton asked Garland what he meant by a letter, in which disagreements between parents and local school board officials were referred to, as a ”rise in criminal conduct directed toward school personnel.”

”What is the National Security Division, Judge — these are the people, that are supposed to be chasing jihadists and Chinese spies; what does the National Security Division have to do with parents at school boards?” Cotton asked, according to The Federalist.

”This is not, again, about parents at school boards. It’s about threats of violence,” Garland replied.

”Why do you continue to dissemble in front of this committee that you are only talking about violence and threats of violence when your memo says harassment and intimidation?” Cotton said.
