Trump Goes To War With Merrick Garland

Attorney General Merrick Garland announced that a special counsel had been appointed to oversee the two big probes into former President Donald Trump. The first investigation relates to any attempts made to overturn the 2020 election results, and the second one will handle the case of the sensitive documents recovered from Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate last month.

Career prosecutor Jack Smith has been appointed to be the special counsel. The attorney general has noted that this decision will not lead to any delays in these investigations being carried out. Garland noted that Trump’s announcement that he would be running for the presidency again was one of the key reasons why he decided to appoint Smith.

He added that “It is in the public interest” of a special counsel to oversee the DOJ’s probe independently based on the new developments. The announcement was made during an afternoon news conference during which he did not take any questions. He added that this is particularly important as the former President has placed a presidential bid and the current President is fully intent on running in the 2024 election.

Garland, whose 2016 nomination to the Supreme Court was blocked by Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), realistically knows that even this decision will not stop Trump loyalists from saying that the investigations are politically motivated and partisan. However, he does hope that this decision will widely be accepted by the general public and seen as a greater attempt from a non-partisan lens in these investigations.

  1. This is a totally political move on the Biden Administrations behalf by the “owned” Attorney General and DOJ. I do beleive that there is a law on the books that says once a candidate has officially declared their candidacy for an office that NO further action can be forced upon them. Such was the case in the 2016 election with Hillary Clinton’s blatant actions to destroy evidence and cover up her illegal operations concerning her email, her abuse of office, and much more. The difference today is that Trump is not a Democrat.

    • This is the most truthful information that I read about Trump since all the madness began.
      Everything that I have been reading up until this post has been negitive against Trump.
      Trump did more good in the little time he served in the White House than Biden did in his whole career as a Democrat.
      Trump was called out about all the women he knew and all the dirt they made up about him but he ignored it and moved
      forward. Why hasn’t there been any “gossip” about how slicky “Joe” met Jill?
      I haven’t been able to figure out if the “haters” just are jealous of Trumps success or they are jealous because they can’t be him.

      • No Barbara, they are afraid of him. He does not want to follow their insane agenda, he is breaking the mold that the DC Swamp want as a President. someone who is going to be the pupppet and will let them get as rich as they want.

  2. It is politically motivate, plain and simple! The DemocRATS want to rid themselves of Mr Trump once and for all!

    • This is beyond politically motivated, the DEMONcrats want revenge for TRUMP winning the 2016 election cycle, so theyvwznt revenge on that and there is so much hatred of TRUMP that you can cut that hatred with a knife. The byden has proven the most hateful of all the DEMONcrats as he hates everything about this country and has proven that by ending all oil drilling and gas drilling on almost all land in the nation, yeah the demon crats are not only crazy but they are not the smartest creatures around either.

    • It ain’t gonna happen in ten lifetimes.

      Joe has to go, if he doesn’t, then we won’t have an AMERICA left to fight for.

      IT AIN’T OVER UNTIL THE FAT ANGEL SINGS!

  3. THANK GOD that this tiny POS never became a SCOTUS judge. Petty, CORRUPT, corrupt and petty.

  4. All the ‘ pee wees ‘ are to be watched CLOSELY, like this pile of you know what, fauXci, old mitch etc…DEMONICrats ARE ALL CORRUPT!

  5. If you have done nothing wrong what is all the fuss about let’s go to court and find out the truth

    • Alfredo- apply your email to the long list of crimiinals from Oblabbo , hillary the hag etc………..that’s what should happen to that rotten gang of demorats !!

    • So I can sue you for the hell of it on some bogus made up crap. You get your name tarnished, spend who knows how much money to defend yourself, waste your time and be stressed for no reason?

      I don’t think you thought this comment through very well

    • I haven’t seen Trump running away and hiding to prevent getting this “witch hunt” over with.

      Hillary did a heck of a lot more wrong than Trump EVER did but she got special treatment. It is not what you know it is “who” you know.

      If Trump runs again HE WILL MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN.

      I know he will close the border and finish the wall all the way this time. I hope he sends these people home where they came from with experienced workers to teach them the trades we have here in America in thier own country so they can survive and feed their families. NONE of Gods people derserve to be left behind and not have the basic needs of food, housing healthe care and ediucation.

      GO TRUMP 2024

  6. Garland said it in his statement that when Trump decided to run for presidency he decided to do this atrocious illegal political attack against President Trump . They have not stopped attacking him since 2015 . Think about it they have been investigating him for 7 yrs they would of found something by nowwhen they can’t they make up crap and use the media to spread the propaganda. Whille wasting millions of dollars . They want him gone by any means . They want you to look at him that way you aren’t looking at all their corruption and destruction of America . The ones that need to be indicted and did the real insurrection is the Communist Demonrats . They always deflect their corruption into someone else will do anything go power . They know if Trump is President they will be revealed . He if anything brought all the rats out of the sewers into the light for all to see if only media would cover it but they are the propaganda and cover part of the communist party

  7. Garland needs arrested for his treasonous acts.

  8. Time to bring these peices of shit democrats down once and for Al. They are all following and listening to Satan as he uses them as his puppets to push out his evil orders and demands! Trump 2024!
