Opinion: Garland is very soft on Trump…

 

Attorney General Merrick B. Garland announced today the appointment of former career Justice Department prosecutor and former chief prosecutor for the special court in The Hague, Jack Smith, to serve as Special Counsel to oversee two ongoing criminal investigations. The first is the investigation, as described in court filings in the District of Columbia, into whether any person or entity unlawfully interfered with the transfer of power following the 2020 presidential election or the certification of the Electoral College vote held on or about January 6, 2021. The second is the ongoing investigation involving classified documents and other presidential records, as well as the possible obstruction of that investigation, referenced and described in court filings submitted in a pending matter in the Southern District of Florida” (Department of Justice – ‘Appointment of a Special Counsel’ 18.11.2022).

You can imagine someone inciting to overthrow the elected government and stealing state secrets would walk free for months on end. In the United States of America that’s the case. The Former President Donald J. Trump can try to install himself in the oval office, incite violence and stop the process of an election. While he can also steal, sell and possible endanger the Republic for personal gains. That’s what Trump has done and still he walks free.

Others who was part of the January 6th insurrection is already behind bars. Others have pleaded guilty and agreed to cooperate with the prosecution. That’s why it’s interesting that the Attorney General appoints a Special Counsel to look into the case of Trump’s involvement in the January 6th Insurrection. When he had power, was the President and could have called it off. They all acted on his wishes and he had the motive to do it. That’s easy to see. The former President was the one who could get a second term, if he had succeed that day.

That’s why you know the Attorney General should have instead indicted and started grand jury proceedings. This is so softly going against a man who was willing to end democracy and get himself into office. That sort of man doesn’t care about justice or rule of law. No, he only cares about himself and his own interests.

The second case is also so obvious and he is being treated so uniquely. Trump are able to walk and be free after taking confidential documents. He possibly took the nuclear codes and other highly sensitive secret documents, which are of national importance. They are acting like it doesn’t matter and doesn’t have any real consequences. Because, Trump did it, but we know others has served time and lost their careers in government for taking a single document or leaking it for that matter. This is why this is infuriating. When you know it is boxes upon boxes, which has been returned from his Mar-A-Lago home in Florida.

Attorney General Garland is too careful. Others would have paid the cost and the price already. The AG should have acted more swiftly and ensured a bulletproof case was already certain. It is like it’s glacier slow and only giving Trump time to get into the ring again in 2024. The latest press conference and order of Special Counsel seems to be another move to stall it. Yes, Mueller was able to do certain things, but he never got the big-dogs. That’s why I have little faith in another man or woman in his stead.

Trump is the winner here. The DoJ and the AG is so meek. There is nothing fierce or willing to humiliate Trump. Garland has shown that his not willing to touch or play fair. No, his just depleting all options and not challenging Trump. While Trump can use one scheme and create another scheme. Before the latest scheme is over, he has done another one and a new crime is committed. Meanwhile, he is never paying the price or ever caught. It seems like Trump is a living “get-out-of-jail-free-card”. Since nothing sticks on him and he never get indicted or prosecuted. There is plenty of investigations, but they are not going anywhere. The only real price he has paid is losing his Foundation and paying damages for Trump University. The rest his off the hook and haven’t really gotten punished. That has to stop.

Especially, when he should face charges of insurrection and stealing government documents. Peace.
