    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.


    It's about time the Republicans went after Wray and Garland.
