“Attorney General Garland, do your job so we can do ours.”

Rep. Elaine Luria, to U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland on pursuing former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows over the January 6, 2021 insurrection

“Ultimately, the momentary exchange between three wealthy and powerful celebrities pales to the systemic ills and public health crises and international war crimes we are daily immersed in, but it’s also a microcosm of what’s at stake as we face all of them.”

John Pavlovitz, about Will Smith slapping Chris Rock at last Sunday’s Oscar ceremonies

“The Department of Justice has a duty to act on this referral and others that we have sent.

Rep. Adam Schiff, in a statement to U.S. Attorney General Garland about Mark Meadows
