The Department of Justice is firing back at House Judiciary Chairman
Jim Jordan after Attorney General Merrick Garland and FBI Director
Christopher Wray were subpoenaed by the House Judiciary Committee,
saying that issuing subpoenas is "premature."
Last week, Jordan subpoenaed Wray, compelling him to turn over
documents and communications related to the FBI’s "misuse of federal
criminal and counterterrorism resources" to target parents at school
board meetings. Jordan also subpoenaed Garland and Education Secretary
Miguel Cardona for documents related to the same matter.
The subpoena compelled Wray to turn over documents to the committee at
9 a.m. ET on March 1. It also demanded documents related to the Justice Department’s task force that focused on identifying school board
threats and the FBI’s role as a member of that task force.
