(FeaturedNews.com) – Attorney General Merrick Garland is set to appear before a Senate Panel on Capitol Hill for the first time in the 118th Congress. This comes at a time when the Justice Department is investigating both President Biden as well as Former Presidents.
The Senate Judiciary Committee has not provided a lot of information regarding the hearing which has been titled “Oversight of the Department of Justice.” The hearing is set for Wednesday at 10 a.m. and is widely expected to cover questions about the investigations on President Biden and former President Trump, as well as questions about the investigation into former Vice President Mike Pence.
All three of the aforementioned men are currently being investigated over the classified documents that were discovered in their homes or offices. The FBI has also conducted searches into all three men’s homes to locate any classified documents left in the homes.
The investigations into Biden and Trump are both overseen by two separate special counsels. Garland appointed a special counsel to handle Trump’s cases following Trump’s announcement that he would be running for the White House in 2024.
The cases all relate to classified documents and the failure to follow the President Records Act, which mandates that presidents and vice presidents are required to hand over all official documents to the National Archives following the end of their tenures. However, there are also differences in the cases as Biden and Pence have fully cooperated with the DOJ while Trump refused to cooperate with them.
