Merrick Garland says DOJ may prosecute Trump for Jan. 6: ‘We are not avoiding political cases’ Travis Gettys


Raw Story: Attorney general Merrick Garland pledged that the Department of Justice would not shy away from Jan. 6 evidence that implicates disgraced former president Donald Trump or his inner circle.

The House select committee has asserted that Trump committed multiple criminal acts as he sought to overturn his 2020 election loss, and but the attorney general assured NPR that the Justice Department would pursue charges against anyone involved in the U.S. Capitol riot who violated the law.

“We are not avoiding cases that are political or cases that are controversial or sensitive,” Garland told NPR. “What we are avoiding is making decisions on a political basis, on a partisan basis.”

Garland said the department had already allocated massive resources to investigating and prosecuting activity related to the insurrection.

“Every FBI office, almost every U.S. attorney’s office in the country is working on this matter,” Garland said. “We’ve issued thousands of subpoenas, seized and examined thousands of electronic devices, examined terabytes of data, thousands of hours of videos. People are working every day, 24-7, and are fully aware of how important this is. This had to do with the interference with the peaceful transfer of power from one administration to another, and it doesn’t get more important than that.”

Prosecutors won their first conviction this week in federal court against a Jan. 6 rioter with the guilty verdict against former Texas oil worker Guy Reffitt, and that followed a guilty plea to seditious conspiracy by an Alabama man who was affiliated with the Oath Keepers militia.

“We begin with the cases that are right in front of us with the overt actions and then we build from there, and that is a process that we will continue to build until we hold everyone accountable who committed criminal acts with respect to Jan. 6,” Garland said.  Read more…

  1. “right in front of us with the overt actions and then we build from there”

    Translation: We will continuously crush the common person for anything we can get them on, but we have to be careful of “politics” when it comes to the King.

    If the fear is retaliatory impeachments and arrests for the next King, then stop pushing flawed candidates. If they have done nothing wrong, there is nothing to fear, correct ?

  2. My guess is that we’re all waiting for the next shoe to drop, the one that will make anything Merrick Garland does irrelevant. Always remember, Zionism is an apocalyptic death cult.

    The so-called Samson Option is not a last resort, It’s Zionism’s ultimate goal. Israeli poet Itamar Yaoz-Kest once wrote, “And yet, there is a right reserved only to us [Ashkenazim] (if indeed any human on Earth has this right): to be destroyed and to take the weary and sated world with us into non-existence, along with its wondrous libraries and heart-stirring tunes – just so, after we descend to the grave, while the ground emits radioactive rays to all four winds…

    50 million US Christian Zionists pray for this to happen each and every day.
