Republicans are floating an impeachment of Attorney General Merrick Garland.
On Thursday, Rep. Bob Good (R-VA) told CNN that Congress should impeach Garland, presumably over the indictment of former President Donald Trump. Republican outrage over Trump’s indictment in the classified documents case has renewed calls to impeach the attorney general, who has long been the subject of ire from the party.

“We should impeach Merrick Garland,” Good said. “He’s clearly abusing the power of his position. We ought to impeach [FBI] Director Wray as well.”
Rep. Ralph Norman (R-SC) suggested investigating the Department of Justice and FBI and defunding “certain parts of it.”
Articles of impeachment have already been introduced by Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) for “facilitating the weaponization and politicization of the United States justice system against the American people.”

The document says Garland “has taken measures to silence the voices of millions of citizens of the United States by persecuting the former duly elected and lawful President of the United States, and Presidential candidate, Donald J. Trump.”
The articles were introduced on May 17, and they have since been cosponsored by Reps. Anna Paulina Luna (R-FL), Cory Mills (R-FL), Jefferson Van Drew (R-NJ), Barry Moore (R-AL), Gregory Steube (R-FL), and Diana Harshbarger (R-TN).
