attorney general Merrick Garland proved himself not competent enough for the role of the nation’s highest-ranking law enforcement officer during its House Judiciary Committee hearing on Thursday, the panel of “The Five” discussed, with some hosts remarking that he had to be a handful. There was no information about high profile cases. The department should have followed.

“[It] I have in mind that you don’t know about the violent extremists who are forced to sneak into a department here in Washington,” he said.

On “The Five,” host Greg Gutfeld remarks incredulously that Garland is supposed to be Attorney General, but does not recall such incidents.

“He talks about how he read in the news. He had no idea what happened with the Interior Department last week. The friend is the Attorney General. Didn’t know it was a ‘rebellion.’ happened?” “Gutfeld!” Host asked, noting Garland is targeting parents at simultaneous school board meetings to complain for possible investigation.

“He has no idea about the data behind the police-suspect conversation. He gets all the instructions from secondary uncontrolled opinion,” Gutfeld said. “I mean, if they’re going to target US citizens, you should get your information from Buzzfeed, right? You’re talking about ruining people’s lives. You’re an attorney general,’ Not an associate producer of The View. — It’s disgusting.”

Gutfeld noted that Garland acknowledged to Ohio Reps Jim Jordan and Steve Chabot that the letter from the National School Boards Association led largely to action on the front of the school board memo.

“Think about it. This man is launching an investigation on the parents, not because he had the figures, the actual specific cases, but because he had received a letter,” he said. “If the letter was about an environmental group or the BLM, it wouldn’t have proceeded like this. It’s really a political action. You have to accept it. But what’s worse is to follow this guy.” How easy it was to get inspired – just send a letter.

Host Jesse Waters echoed Gutfeld, but blamed President Obama for Garland’s prominence. He noted that once Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-Ky. After Garland became a political figure, essentially barred him from nomination proceedings for the US Supreme Court, citing Congressional precedent.

“What do I blame Garland for? Obama,” Waters said. “He was the one who brings Garland into the conversation… It turns out he’s not a libertarian: not even capable. You can write a letter to the AG and they activate the FBI?”

“Oh, the letter had articles they linked to. I read some articles. He got a letter from a liberal and read some fake news and that’s how you get an active FBI investigation?”

Waters said the Loudoun County, Va., center of the Garland school board controversy did not know the specifics of the case.

Later, co-host Harold Ford Jr., a former Democratic congressman from Memphis, said he had seen cases in his home state where Garland’s memo could be helpful, explaining how medical experts have been working on COVID-19 mitigation.
