Attorney General Merrick Garland responded to critics, including former President Donald Trump, who have made numerous allegations regarding the Department of Justice’s management of investigations involving Trump, President Joe Biden, and his crack-head son, Hunter Biden.
Garland is slated to provide testimony during a hearing of the House Judiciary Committee, which is under Republican leadership. The hearing is titled “Oversight of the U.S. Department of Justice” and is planned to take place on Wednesday.
In a selected portion of his introductory statements, Garland directed his attention towards individuals who have levied allegations against him, asserting that he colluded with Joe Biden to unjustly target former President Trump, exhibit leniency towards Hunter, and shield the president from scrutiny. In his work, Garland stated:
There is not one set of laws for the powerful and another for the powerless; one for the rich, another for the poor; one for Democrats, another for Republicans; or different rules, depending upon one’s race or ethnicity or religion.
As the President himself has said, and I reaffirm here today: I am not the President’s lawyer. I will also add that I am not Congress’s prosecutor. The Justice Department works for the American people. Our job is to follow the facts and the law, wherever they lead. And that is what we do.
AG Garland is not supposed to have direct involvement in the aforementioned investigations. Instead, Special Counsel Jack Smith has been appointed by Garland to carry out investigations pertaining to Trump’s alleged mishandling of classified documents and his involvement in the events surrounding the attempt to put the 2020 election results on hold, which resulted in violence by a few people out of hundreds of thousands of peaceful protesters on January 6th.
Special Counsel Robert Hur was designated to undertake an inquiry into classified papers that were initially identified and handed over by Biden’s team. This investigation subsequently led to the identification of a supplementary limited collection of documents that included classification marks.
In August, an announcement was made by Garland, wherein he designated David Weiss, the U.S. attorney who Trump appointed during his administration, who had been previously responsible for managing the investigation of Hunter Biden, as the special counsel tasked with probing Hunter Biden’s actions.
The previously mentioned investigations have led to the issuance of indictments against Trump on a total of 44 felony counts. Additionally, three accusations have been brought against Hunter Biden, although President Biden, like a slippery mafia don, has not faced any charges thus far.
On Tuesday, President Trump, in a post on Truth Social, quoted an article by Andrew C. Mccarthy, a Senior Fellow At National Review Institute.
The article begins:
“The Justice Department – the arm of the United States government vested with responsibility to enforce the insurrection law – has not charged Trump with insurrection because it can’t prove Trump committed insurrection. Not with anything we would recognize as due process of law.”
It’s not that Biden-DOJ-appointed special counsel Jack Smith hasn’t been trying. And it is obviously not that Smith is unwilling to stretch federal criminal laws to the breaking point to make a January 6 case against Trump. The insuperable hurdle is that the evidence does not support a charge of insurrection.
The Biden Justice Department, the most unabashedly political Justice Department in American history, has prosecuted about 1,100 people in connection with the riot, while blinking at the more lengthy and lethal rioting of the radical left. It has been moving heaven and earth to make criminal cases against the former Republican president, indicting him twice, even as it turns a blind eye to the Biden family influence-peddling scandal and willfully allows the statute-of-limitations on the crimes of the sitting Democratic president and his family to expire rather than filing indictments.
After years of investigating, Smith and the Biden Justice Department brought a January 6 indictment against Trump in the District of Columbia, which has the most Trump-hostile jury pool in the country. They then hit the jackpot by drawing an anti-Trump judge out of central casting – Obama appointee Tanya Chutkan, who, in a courthouse where the bench teems with Democratic appointees who’ve meted out harsh sentences to January 6 defendants, manages to stand out as the scourge of the Capitol riot. It is safe to say that Judge Chutkan has swallowed whole the Democratic Party hyperbole that our democracy stood on the precipice of doom due to a mere three hours of unrest – in which no security personnel were killed, which had not the remotest chance of reversing Biden’s victory, and which was so ineffectual that Congress was able to reconvene in the Capitol just a few hours later.
Nevertheless, gifted with this greatest home-field advantage of all time, Smith and his team haven’t charged Trump with insurrection. That’s because they don’t have a case. They desperately want to bring one, but they know that nothing would explode the Democrats’ January 6 myth-making like an acquittal of Donald Trump. And even with Judge Chutkan presiding and a Washington, D.C., jury, that’s what they’d get.
