A new report suggested Joe Biden’s Attorney General Merrick Garland may have a conflict of interest over critical race theory.
A Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request by America First Legal has revealed Garland’s daughter is married to Xan Tanner, who holds a top position at Panorama Education. The company he works for received $16 million from Facebook in 2017 to promote critical race theory and gender ideology programs in schools.
A press release regarding Facebook’s funding read, “Panorama Education will use the funding to expand its tools that help school districts develop students’ social and emotional skills, promote family engagement with school and increase college readiness.”
See if you can follow along: So Merrick Garland wants to sick the DOJ on parents protesting the Marxist agenda of Critical Race Theory in our schools.. meanwhile, his daughter Rebecca is married to the co-founder of an education company that publishes CRT materials for schools 🤔

This comes after Garland’s Department of Justice suggested parents who oppose such teachings in public schools are engaging in “domestic terrorism.” America First Legal said these ties raise ethical concerns in the DOJ to advance far-left propaganda for financial gain.
“AG Garland ordered the DOJ to use its vast national security powers to target parents who object to critical race theory being forced onto innocent children. It is therefore exceptionally urgent that the Department disclose all records pertaining to the Garland family’s financial interest in critical race theory and any and all ethical conflicts that arise from that financial interest,” said Stephen Miller, America First Legal founder and former adviser to President Trump.
