Democrats Say Merrick Garland Likely to Prosecute Trump

Democrats say that Attorney General Merrick Garland is likely going to move forward and prosecute former President Trump for attempting to overturn the 2020 election results as well as his role in the Jan. 6 Capitol riot. However, Democrats have little information regarding the potential investigation but have noted Garland’s silence regarding the chances to persecute Trump means he’s likely ensuring it would be run “by the books.”

The Hill reports:

Given the weight of public evidence, Democratic lawmakers think Trump committed federal crimes.

But Senate Democrats also warn that Garland needs to proceed cautiously. Any prosecution that fails to convict Trump risks becoming a disaster and could vindicate Trump, just as the inconclusive report by former special counsel Robert Mueller’s team was seized upon by Trump and his allies to declare his exoneration on a separate series of allegations.

Sen. Richard  Blumenthal (D-Conn.) said “clearly what [Trump] did” in the days leading up and the day of the Jan. 6 attack on Congress “falls in the ambit of what’s being investigated and perhaps is criminal.”

Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.) said it’s up to the prosecutors at the Justice Department whether to charge Trump, though he believes that the former president’s actions on and before Jan. 6 likely violate federal law.

Trump isn’t only facing a potential investigation from the Justice Department but also at the state level. In Georgia, Fulton County Democrat District Attorney Fani Willis said she is inclined to request a special grand jury to authorize subpoenas to advance her investigation of Trump’s conversation with Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger.

Another crooked waste of time move—-they continually push to stop Trump when in all reality the DeomRATS are behind the January 6 riot—and the top leader none other that Pelosi–It is way past time for this to end and to truthfully prosecute those involved and that would be the DemonRAT party

I hope I live long enough to see the day Democrats are treated the same as Trump when it comes to laws that we all have to abide by with the exception of Democrats.

The dumb democrats would think they had learned their lesson by now after several abortive attempts to undermine him. Donald Trump did more for this country in four years despite all the road blocks by the mental midgets that hate our country, the democrats. Garland is at the top of the list of mentally deprived (or is it depraved); thank God he was not allowed to become part of SCOTUS!!

The Attorney General Merrick Garland has been jumping on the bandwagon like all political hacks attempting to discredit President Trump. Maybe if he didn’t his job instead of wasting time and money on Trump. He should be enforcing the immigration laws?

Seems to most conservatives that continued and repeated investigations and lawsuits are intended to distract the public from the ridiculous failures of the current president. As the highest political body, it’s easy for either the House or Senate to simply make a charge to activate an army of committee members and lawyers.

But it’s a much tougher matter to impeach a president or win a court case. And sometimes they end by being declared frivolous lawsuits, a very embarrassing event, especially for U.S. legislators who answer to the voters. Thus far, Pelosi the Puppeteer’s paddles have not been up to the task.

Hopefully when she’s gone, the U.S. Congress will return to the nation’s business.

Garland is a pathetic loser and a political hack of the first order. To top it all off he is downright stupid. That makes him perfect for the Biden Administration. Biden is always trying to fill his administration positions with people who are as dumb as he is. He has been quite successful in his quest.

Not to mention Trump’s animus toward so many life long Republicans.
