AG Garland: David Weiss ‘Was Given Complete Authority,’ No One Blocked Him from Bringing Charges in DC, Calif.
GARLAND: “I said at the outset, Mr. Weiss, who was appointed by President Trump, as the U.S. Attorney in Delaware and assigned this matter during the previous administration, would be permitted to continue his investigation and to make a decision to prosecute any way in which he wanted to and in any district in which he wanted to. Mr. Weiss has since sent a letter to the House Judiciary Committee confirming that he had that authority. I don't know how it would be possible for anybody to block him from bringing a prosecution given that he has this authority."
REPORTER: "And he was never told no."
GARLAND: "So, he was given complete authority to make all decisions on his own."
