Jonathan Turley: AG Merrick Garland made ‘greatest case’ for impeaching Biden

The first son had reached a plea deal with the Justice Department to avoid prison time, but the deal fell apart when a judge questioned its constitutionality

George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley argues in a column published on Saturday that the House has no other option but to open an impeachment investigation into President Joe Biden and that Attorney General Merrick Garland made the “greatest case for an impeachment inquiry.”

In the column, titled “Why the House Has No Alternative to an Impeachment Inquiry into President Biden,” Turley said Congress “has little alternative but to launch a long-discussed impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden” when it returns to session next month. 

Garland “appointed the one prosecutor who should have been categorically excluded — David Weiss,” Turley also wrote. “Not only did Garland have to ignore his own regulations to appoint Weiss but he also had to ignore the main qualification: The appointed outside counsel should be someone with ‘a reputation for integrity and impartial decision-making.'”

Weiss, the U.S. Attorney for Delaware, had already been investigating Hunter Biden on alleged tax charges. The first son had reached a plea deal with the Justice Department to avoid prison time, but the deal fell apart when a judge questioned its constitutionality.

“While Garland seems incapable of imagining any crime involving the president, he has made a conclusive — if unintended — case for an impeachment inquiry,” Turley added.

“With the investigative impediments created by the Weiss appointment and by Garland’s refusal to expressly extend the special counsel’s mandate to the allegations of Biden family influence-peddling, there is little choice but to commence an impeachment inquiry.”
