The timing of the January 6 “Select” Committee really is quite curious in a number of different ways.
After all, the nation is on the brink of a recession (if it’s not there already), the border is completely out of control, the conflict in Europe shows no end in sight, and China is licking its chops at the process of taking over Taiwan and the chip industry.
Yet the media apparently wants to fixate on January 6, especially in terms of disempowering former President Donald Trump.
In fact, it should come as a surprise to exactly no one that the Department of Justice is now salivating over the possibility of potentially charging Trump with a crime.
Attorney General Merrick Garland has openly bragged about how “extensive” the investigation has been, strongly implying that it may well result in criminal charges for Trump.
“The Justice Department has been doing the most wide-ranging investigation in its history and the committee is doing an enormously wide-ranging investigation as well,” Garland boasted.
It’s a shame that such an “extensive” investigation couldn’t be applied to Hunter Biden, given that his antics gravely threaten the present state of the nation.
However, double standards reign supreme as far as the Democrats are concerned, though news anchor Lester Holt was not afraid to ask Garland whether or not indicting Trump might “tear the country apart.”
At that point, Garland really displayed the double standards, having the gall to claim that the DoJ allegedly pursues justice “without fear or favor.”
“Look, we pursue justice without fear or favor,” Garland boomed.
Unless, of course, that “justice” pertains to anyone with the last name Biden, Clinton, or Obama.
“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.
In that case, how about the Democrats in charge of Capitol Hill security?
While it is unclear how Trump could be charged at this point, what is clear is that the committee is trying everything in its power to secure such a charge, including dramatic “what if” testimony from Marc Short, who served as Mike Pence’s Chief of Staff.
“I think that the bigger risk, and despite the way perhaps it was characterized in the hearings last week, candidly, is that if the mob had gotten closer to the vice president, I do think there would have been a massacre in the Capitol that day. I’m not so sure the Secret Service lives were those in danger, though. I think that likely there would have been a lot of other lives lost that day,” Short blared.
Speculation, speculation, speculation.
And, humorously, Garland mentions speculation himself with regards to the investigation.
“It is inevitable in this kind of investigation that there’ll be speculation about what we are doing, who we are investigating, what our theories are,” Garland blared, “the reason there is this speculation and uncertainty is that some fundamental tenet of what we do as prosecutors and investigators is to do it outside of the public eye.”
Pretty much everything the Democrats do is “outside of the public eye” these days …
