ex-president before, I prefer to assume Garland is spending this time getting his ducks in a very fine row.

...because my doubts are strong, although hardly absolute.

If an investigation is going on it hasn't yet reached to point of interviews, which are very hard to keep secret. That means at best there's a glacially slow investigation going on. At worst, no investigation at all.

... I am undecided. I do like that "Yes" is winning. They are investigating the rioters - but are they connecting the dots? Why was Meadows given a pass?

I think they are concerned that if Trump is prosecuted, there will be another Jan 6, except this time, the rioters will have machine guns.
