To the Americans who have managed to stay sane amid the prevailing madness, Attorney General Merrick Garland is a hyper-partisan authoritarian who has sicced the FBI on parents who are concerned about their children, exaggerating imaginary threats for political purposes while ignoring real terrorists. But to the even more rabid members of the House Jan. 6 committee, Garland is a big lovable marshmallow who has been far too easy on the traitor Trump and his white supremacist followers. They want him to act, to contain the Trump threat, preferably before the “insurrectionists” score big gains in the 2022 midterm elections.
The Associated Press, which can always be relied upon to amplify the concerns of the Leftists in the corridors of power in Washington, reported Saturday that “lawmakers investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol are increasingly going public with critical statements, court filings and more to deliver a blunt message to Attorney General Merrick Garland and the Department of Justice.” The blunt message they have in mind? “President Donald Trump and his allies likely committed crimes, they say.” And they insist that Garland must act.
Rep. Elaine Luria (D-Va.) declared: “Attorney General Garland, do your job so we can do ours.” Her wide-eyed, fanatical colleague Adam Schiff (D-Witch Hunt) intoned solemnly: “We are upholding our responsibility. The Department of Justice must do the same.”
Bear in mind that Trump was already impeached for his actions on Jan. 6, and none of the accompanying investigations found any indication that he had planned to disrupt the counting of the electoral vote on that day, proclaim himself dictator and remain in power, or fulfill any of the Left’s other paranoid fantasies. The fact has been almost universally forgotten by now, but Trump actually called upon protestors on Jan. 6 “to peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard.”
