Kash Patel says the 'top two twins of deceit' Merrick Garland and Chris Wray need to be impeached
"I think it's a political convenience and a political piñata to impeach Joe Biden," Patel said.
Former Trump advisor Kash Patel says that Republicans should focus on impeaching Attorney General Merrick Garland and FBI Director Christopher Wray for enabling the "two-tiered system of justice."
"The real people that need to be impeached are the architects of the two-tier system of justice: the people who have covered up the crimes continuously," Patel said on the "Just the News, No Noise" TV show. "Merrick Garland and Christopher Wray are the top two twins of deceit at the top of my list."
"If we impeach them and Congress ... maybe did more than one thing at a time, the documents would finally start flowing," he added. "These two individuals have committed felonies on a weekly basis by violating congressional subpoenas. When Donald Trump supporters did that, they got convicted and sentenced to prison. But they, as the heads of law enforcement get to ride a different system of justice. Congress needs to really buckle down on DOJ and FBI."
On Tuesday, House Speaker Kevin McCarthy approved an impeachment inquiry against President Joe Biden, even though some GOP senators have spoken out against the measure.
Patel suggested that it's possible Democrats want Republicans to impeach Biden because they don't want him as their 2024 nominee.
"I think it's a political convenience and a political piñata to impeach Joe Biden," he said. "The Democrats don't want him to run. They want the Republicans to do their dirty work for them, and they're probably going to convince them to do that."
Many House leaders have requested materials to further their inquiries into the first family's business dealings and the administration's alleged weaponization of the federal government.
