IN A NUTSHELL: I felt that AG Garland is a little too passive, but in rereading some of my law school books, I understand the details and evidence that has to go into building a case against a prominent political figure.
I went to law school for two years, and I learned a lot. I knew, for example, the importance of corroboration when building cases. Evidence can be challenged in court repeatedly, especially when that evidence comes from people of questionable character.
I, too, feel that AG Garland is too passive. I understand that he is trying to position the Justice Department as non-political, but to voters, it seems that Trump and some Senators are getting away with crimes. That’s not the case. People in Trump’s wall are being indicted left and right, and they’re providing evidence to prosecutors. Unfortunately, all that evidence has to be corroborated because they will say anything to keep themselves from going to prison.
Some people say, “the longer justice waits, the more emboldened these traitors will feel.” You might think that’s true but believe me, the stress of knowing you’re being investigated can cause havoc in your life. Gaetz will be indicted. Trump will be indicted, and many more will also fall.
My professor always said, “go where the evidence takes you”. The stories about Trump in the media do much to get us angry, but the critical question is, “can it be used as evidence, and will it stand up in court?”.
Bill Barr used his powers for political purposes, and AG Garland is trying to eliminate that umbrella. Can you imagine the outrage if four or five Republican politicians were indicted at the same time? The AG would once again be viewed as a political arm of a political party.
Trump is losing supporters all over the place, but the media likes to use him to flame the fires because it leads to readers just like Facebook uses posts to increase “engagement.” The law will be served, and karma will come for these SOB’s.
Trump is still the only President to be impeached twice. Smart Republicans understand that he is a toxic cancer to the party but others are sucking up to him because they are afraid and have no conscience. The media will continue to try their best to get you angry enough to read their stories,
