Here’s the full statement from Garland:

It is deeply disappointing that this House of Representatives has turned a serious congressional authority into a partisan weapon. Today’s vote disregards the constitutional separation of powers, the Justice Department’s need to protect its investigations, and the substantial amount of information we have provided to the Committees.

I will always stand up for this Department, its employees, and its vital mission to defend our democracy.

Peaceful J6 protesters, pro-life activists, and certainly President Trump would strongly and rightfully disagree with that garbage Garland put on paper.

Conservatives on social media hammered Garland after reading the despicable statement.
