Indicting Trump A Very Bad Idea

Is Garland thinking about it?

Is the January 6th committee trying to amass enough evidence for Merrick Garland to indict President Trump because of the riot?

If so, it’s a bad idea. The protests would be large and it would only make the president stronger. The president was already impeached when he was innocent. Trey Gowdy and others know this and are asking questions.

Fox: “Sunday Night in America” host Trey Gowdy criticized Attorney General Merrick Garland’s public pledge to watch the Jan. 6 televised hearings, asking on his show over the weekend why Garland is relying on Congress to gather evidence for the Justice Department’s investigation when he has “far better investigative tools at his disposal.”

TREY GOWDY: “There’s nothing wrong with watching television… but I guess the difference is, you and I don’t have much of a choice when it comes to getting information. We don’t get to have an army of investigators and prosecutors at our disposal, Merrick Garland does. He has federal law enforcement at his beck and call. He has scores of prosecutors, he has access to a grand jury and search warrants… he can access financial records and phone records… he can compel witnesses to testify… so why is he watching television? Why does the chief prosecutor, the managing partner of most powerful law firm in the world need to watch television to gather facts? He can interview any of the witnesses he wants to interview. He can gather whatever evidence he thinks is relevant.

“There is no comparison between the power of the Department of Justice versus the power of Congress, yet the attorney general is not only watching TV, the department is miffed that Congress will not share what it has with the department. Why? Why is the attorney general gathering evidence from television? And how reliable would that evidence be given the absence of confrontation or cross-examination? Garland and his prosecutors can watch whatever they want on television. [But] I do wonder why the attorney general is watching a hearing when he has far better investigative tools at his disposal?… It does make you wonder what the department has been doing for the past 18 months. If you want to know what happened, find and examine witnesses and evidence. The remote control ain’t going to help you.”

An LZ source said, “The old saying “a grand jury could indict a ham sandwich is true.” A good DA can also convict a ham sandwich. In DC, a lousy incompetent DA can indict & convict a Republican…The Ds, though, have to deal with what happens per Hunter’s laptop if the Rs win the House comfortably (no red wave needed) & impanels a panel.

“Of course, there may be trouble even if they just try him. Had I advice to give, it would be to, in Lincoln’s words, “let them down easy.” No show trials…Imagine if you had put Lee, Longstreet, Joe Johnston, Nathaniel Bedford Forrest, etc., on trial. The guerrilla war would have started immediately….. This is so dumb.”

He is saving millions of dollars for two reasons; why waste millions if mind already made up to incude final decision plus that money can be put to better use such as: that money can help illegal invaders have a better free life here, help other countries, help himself and become richer. Cannot let the pel/clin be richer than you.

Jim, all good, no, great points. But as for “dumb?” The Democrats are beyond dumb. They are desperate. All of their own doing. I don’t believe they can stop now. They are the airborne Thelma and Louise. Their only guide, now, is gravity. And gravity gets its way. Every time.
