Senate Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Chuck Grassley, R-Aova last week asked the Biden administration to retain Tony Bacon, who is the acting U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of New York. Bacon is one of a group of Trump-era federal prosecutors who have been asked by the Biden administration to resign.

Republicans have also telegraphed that Garland will face questions over a federal investigation into Hunter Biden’s “tax affairs,” which the president has strongly promised he will hold out. Republicans may ask that Garland, a political appointee, stay out of the investigation himself.

A spokesman for Grassley previously told Granthshala News, “Americans have the right to know that disruptions to this investigation will not be hampered in any way and that Attorney General Nominee should clarify this.” “So yes, you can expect Sen. Grassley to ask about his role in this investigation.”

Weiss was an exception to the resignation requested by the Biden administration of Trump-era American lawyers, and Rep. Ken Buck, R-Colo., In a letter last week, asking Garland to commit to following the president’s lead. It is possible that Senate Republicans may also bring up that subject.

Another potential topic is the investigation by Special Counsel John Durham, who is investigating alleged wrongdoing by federal law enforcement in a case of collusion with the Russian government in the 2016 presidential campaign of then-candidate Donald Trump. Republicans would likely ask that Garland not interfere with that investigation. Garland may also face questions over the change in policy from Trump administration to President Biden on immigration.
