Attorney General Merrick Garland is set to testify before a House Judiciary Committee hearing Wednesday morning where Republicans are expected to grill him over the investigations into Hunter Biden and former President Donald Trump.

The hearing is meant to be part of the committee’s standard oversight duties, but the morning’s meeting between the U.S.’s top prosecutor and the panel’s Republican members promises to be heated.

If the hearing of FBI Director Christopher Wray earlier this summer is any indication, Garland is set for a tense hours-long meeting filled with accusations of an agency politicized.

Congressional Republicans have long criticized Garland and his department for exactly that — even floating the idea of opening an impeachment inquiry into Garland.

GOP lawmakers have called Garland out for a perceived “two-tiered” system of justice when it came to investigating Republicans and Democrats.

That’s due to the investigations into President Joe Biden’s handling of classified material, his surviving son, Hunter Biden and of former President Donald Trump.

Garland will be prepared to defend his agency.
