DOJ announces 'significant law enforcement matter' press conference with AG Merrick Garland
Attorney General Merrick Garland

The Dept. of Justice is announcing Attorney General Merrick Garland will make "announcements on a significant law enforcement matter" at a 12:30 PM ET press conference.

Deputy Attorney General Lisa Monaco and FBI Director Christopher Wray will join Garland.

Garland is under fire for not taking any public action against Steve Bannon's criminal contempt of Congress referral, and what many see as a refusal to charge Trump administration officials including the former president and those related to him and his operations.

Also in attendance will be the Deputy Secretary of the Treasury, Wally Adeyemo, likely signaling it will not be related to Bannon or Trump.

The event can be viewed live at the DOJ's website here.
