Our Job

Our job is not to take orders from the President, from Congress, or from anyone else, about who or what to criminally investigate.  As the President himself has said, and I reaffirm here today: I am not the President's lawyer.  I will also add that I am not Congress's prosecutor.  The Justice Department works for the American people.

-- U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland, in his opening statement before the House Judiciary Committee, 20 September 2023
