Bill Barr issued a memo before he resigned at the DOJ under trump stating that no investigations can be begun into trump or his election fraud without his personal approval.
Merrick Garland re-issued Barr’s memo. Rachel Maddow opened her show with this subject yesterday. If the DOJ wants to investigate trump on the January 6th investigation referrals, Garland has to personally green light it. As soon as trump declares he’s a candidate, Garland has to personally bless any investigations.
Maddow and guests were confused why Garland would re-issue Barr’s memo. It’s odd that Garland would bring Barr’s DOJ - obviously under trump’s thumb - into this current set of investigations. The thoughts are that Garland is just doing proper diligence to not influence an election, but the curious part is reusing Barr’s memo and possible foot dragging.
Honestly, fuck the election. Which is more important? Not disqualifying a traitor who tried to overthrow the US government and install himself as “president”? We all know trump tried to steal the election and subvert democracy. He committed treason. He’ s an insurrectionist. Investigate the fucker and let the chips fall where they may. Republicans will never respect any precedents anyway.
Why does Garland need to defer to Barr? Why is the DOJ going so slow? Why isn’t there a full-blown investigation at the DOJ now running in parallel to the January 6th committee?
I hate to say it but Merrick Garland is continuing to raise eyebrows as he defers to trumpco and his cronies. Garland needs to come to jebus and decide if he is serving democracy or serving trump.
As for Barr, I sure hope Maddow is wrong but she is wicked smart in this area and her take isn’t far off from the Democratic party’s (especially the J6 folks) questioning of why Garland isn’t doing more. The DOJ has more subpoena and legal power than congress.
We got us a troll in here? Paid by post or by the hour? Or just a pissed off libertarian Musk humper who lost all his savings and earinings in Doge and Bitcoin? Damn. Or maybe one of those neoliberal Democrats who really really like the whole Clintonian descent into corporatism that just added a few more nails to the American democracy experiment coffin. Seems a bit confused and his/her sources suck.
The Watergate investigation took well over 2 years to complete and there were a lot less top figures involved in it than Jan 6th. January 6th involves a hell of a lot more high profile people in top government positions. And during the Watergate era they weren't having a press conferences everyday to give out all of the evidence they had collected because it would've been fucking stupid to do so. Yet you dumb fucks let a fucking hack like maddow convince you that Garland isn't doing anything because he isn't laying out a case to the public. How fucking stupid do you have to be to want an investigation this complex to be rushed just because your favorite talking pundits want it to be rushed because they have shit ratings. Rushed investigations lead to mistakes and mistakes lead to people getting away with crimes on technicalities. Garland has a proven track record of being meticulous in his cases because he doesn't want anything to be overturned and he can handle himself. Garland has said numerous times well before your favorite piece of shit maddow released an old memo everyone already fucking knew about he stated that trump nor anyone else is above prosecution. And I believe he is doing his job he just made it clear any important decisions have to go through him before being made which is exactly how it should be. So when Garland finishes his investigation and trump is put on trial you dumb fucks are going to feel really fucking stupid for listening to a piece of shit like maddow who told you nothing would happen. She clearly doesn't know shit about how criminal proceedings work because you don't discuss specifics of a criminal case with the public. It's all doom and gloom for ratings just like the assholes trying to suppress votes for the Democratic Party by implying Democrats are going to lose in November. But we're not losing we're actually going to pick up seats. I'm not a right-winger I am a lifelong Democrat who I refuses to let the media and talking pundits sell me on this doom and gloom defeatist bullshit. trump will be prosecuted and I will continue to vote for Democrats in every election like always. Some of these same media talking pundits were the same assholes who spent months saying the January 6th committee hearings would be useless and yet those fucking doom and gloom assholes we're proven wrong as well.
Melania very sad if Garland man not to take up case to put farm pig in bigger cage. Melania have to resort to other means to be free of it. Melania think of call doorman from old building in New York for help, to talk to friends in New Jersey.
