What we have here is a failure to communicate. So “Milk Jug” Garland now comes out after how long and say’s yes, we will prosecute anyone who is criminally liable for J6. The operative word here is CRIMINALLY LIABLE, which so far he has not found Trump of being anything criminal. What with all the decades of crimining going on, no one, not any AG ever, has found Trump or his family criminally liable for anything. So the escape hatch here for Garland, and please make note of this, is he will hold only those found “CRIMINALLY LIABLE” for J6, and Trump will not be found to have been CRIMINALLY LIABLE for some shady reason like not being able to establish that Trump had “INTENT”. That is how Trump will get away with it, INTENT, for without intent you have zero criminal liability.
So Trump would skate because guess what, he could make a valid claim that he really believed, through advisors he hired or listened to, that the election of 2020 was stolen from him. He could make a reasonable doubt issue that would make it impossible to show his INTENT, to commit such criminal acts. Granted there are numerous other criminal aspects to Trump and his crimes other than J6, but so far Garland is still missing in action on that. If Trump could be prosecuted for ANYTHING, they would have done so by now. If all the public is hanging on is a chad of hope, J6 is not that chad, primarily because if they could prosecute him for J6, they would have already done so by now.
Attorney General Merrick Garland left open the possibility that former President Donald Trump could be prosecuted in connection with inciting the Jan. 6, 2021, insurrection in an exclusive interview Tuesday with NBC News.
“Look, we pursue justice without fear or favor,” Garland told NBC News’ Lester Holt, when asked whether indicting a former president would “arguably tear the country apart.”
“We intend to hold everyone, anyone who was criminally responsible for the events surrounding Jan. 6, for any attempt to interfere with the lawful transfer of power from one administration to another, accountable,” Garland continued. “That’s what we do.”
“So if Donald Trump were to become a candidate for president again, that would not change your schedule or how you move forward or don’t move forward?” Holt asked.
“I’ll say again that we will hold accountable anyone who is criminally responsible for attempting to interfere with the transfer — legitimate, lawful transfer of power from one administration to the next,” Garland answered.
Garland’s remarks came as the Justice Department has faced increasing pressure to act decisively following weeks of testimony before the bipartisan Jan. 6 investigatory committee by former Trump administration officials who alleged that Trump incited the rioters who invaded the U.S. Capitol and that he ignored pleas of his own people to stop them.
