Washington, D.C.– Following his vote to hold U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland in contempt of Congress, Representative Gary Palmer (AL-06) released the following statement:

“Merrick Garland’s refusal to release the recordings from President Biden’s interview with Special Counsel Robert Hur raises serious questions about President Biden’s mental fitness to function as President,” said Rep. Palmer. “The White House vehemently denied Special Counsel Hur’s depiction of President Biden as a ‘sympathetic, well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory.’ Considering the investigation into Biden’s mishandling of classified documents is closed, Biden does not face any legal jeopardy. Also, the fact that the written, unredacted transcript has been released, it makes no sense that AG Garland is willing to be charged in contempt of Congress for refusing to comply with the subpoena and release the recording of the interview. Garland’s willingness to have his record tarnished by being held in contempt of Congress only increases speculation and concern about President Biden’s mental ability to effectively carry out his duties as President.”
