Members of the U.S. House on Monday released a video explaining the need to find Merrick Garland, Joe Biden’s pick to be attorney general, in contempt of Congress, an offense for which jail is the approved penalty.

Members of Congress adopted a report last month that recommended such a case against Garland for refusing the comply with a congressional subpoena for the audio tapes of Biden’s interview with special counsel Robert Hur.

Rep. Laurel Lee, R-Fla., explains, in the video, the problem Garland has created. She explains there’s much information available on a recording that might not be perceived in a basic transcript.

It was Hur who found that Biden willfully “retained and disclosed” classified materials after his vice presidency, when he was a private citizen.

His incentive was an $8 million advance on a book deal, meaning that Hur established the elements of a crime, motive and action.

But then he recommended against charging Biden because of his diminished capacity, saying he would be seen by a jury as a “sympathetic, well-meaning elderly man with a poor memory.”

WND reported only a few weeks ago of the stark double standard the Biden administration is using to operate.

Another special counsel, Jack Smith, has launched a massive attack on President Donald Trump over his retention of presidential papers in his home.

There are several differences from the Biden case. Trump was president and had authority to declassify any documents; Biden never was and never did.

Further, there are allegations that Trump was “set up” with a government instruction for his team to take the papers at issue. And there are reports that the government retained the original documents anyway, and Trump only had copies.

Any documents held by Trump were in a building guarded by Secret Service officers, while Biden stored classified information in his private office, his home and even his garage.
