Cotton: Garland must resign over DOJ over inaction on pro-life attacks

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark) said Thursday that he believes U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland should resign from his position due to a breach of duty. 

Cotton said that Biden’s lack of action on the 50-plus attacks on pro-life pregnancy centers and churches around the nation is tantamount to a miscarriage of justice according to a report by Fox News

The Arkansas Republican, who also happens to be the ranking member for the subcommittee on Criminal Justice and Counterterrorism, the Intelligence Committee, and the Armed Services Committee also called on the DOJ to investigate actions by the group Jane’s Revenge as a “domestic terrorist organization.”

“Houses of worship and pro-life pregnancy centers are under attack. The Family Research Council has compiled a list of more than 50 attacks against churches, pro-life pregnancy centers, and other pro-life groups in the past few weeks,” Cotton wrote to Garland in a letter exclusively obtained by Fox News Digital.

“A left-wing extremist group called ‘Jane’s Revenge’ has taken credit for many of these attacks, including firebombings and grotesque acts of vandalism.”

According to Cotton’s letter, the same group Tuesday “has now issued a letter declaring ‘open season’ on all so-called ‘anti-choice’ groups, and calls for terrorist attacks against these groups by anyone ‘with the urge to paint, to burn, to cut, [or] to jam.”

Following the disclosure of a Supreme Court draft opinion in the case of Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, which, if published, might overturn Roe v. Wade, the senator included a list of more than a dozen attacks that Jane’s Revenge has claimed responsibility for in recent weeks. Cotton believes the DOJ should file federal charges against the offenders because many of these attacks resulted in no arrests.

“What is the Department of Justice doing to protect Americans from these violent attacks? At a minimum, you should bring federal charges3 against the perpetrators, where appropriate, and investigate ‘Jane’s Revenge’ as a domestic terrorist organization, Cotton wrote.

“If you are unwilling to protect Americans from these attacks, you should resign-although, in my opinion, you should resign in any case,” he added.
