JD VANCE, Senator for Ohio

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Following the unprecedented political prosecution of Donald J. Trump by President Biden’s Department of Justice, Senator JD Vance (R-OH) issued the following statement regarding his intent to hold all future nominations to the DOJ:

“Donald Trump is merely the latest victim of a Department of Justice that cares more about politics than law enforcement. Merrick Garland’s department harasses Christians for pro-life advocacy, but allows hardened criminals to walk our streets unpunished. This must stop, and I will do everything in my ability to ensure it does,” said Senator Vance. “Starting today, I will hold all Department of Justice nominations. If Merrick Garland wants to use these officials to harass Joe Biden’s political opponents, we will grind his department to a halt.”
