AG Garland reiterates 'no person' -- not even Trump -- is above the law over Jan. 6

Attorney General Merrick Garland on Wednesday reiterated that "no person," not even a former president, was above the law amid calls from some congressional Democrats to charge Donald Trump after last year's Capitol riot.

During a press conference, a visibly animated Garland twice said that "no person" was above the law when pressed specifically about Trump, whom Democrats say incited the Jan. 6, 2021, insurrection over his unfounded claims of widespread voter fraud in 2020. Democrats also cite Trump's larger, months-long campaign to try and reverse his election loss. (Trump insists he did nothing wrong.)

The Department of Justice has been prosecuting various cases related to the rioting last January.

"There is a lot of speculation about what the Justice Department is doing, what's it not doing, what our theories are and what our theories aren't, and there will continue to be that speculation," the attorney general said Wednesday. "That's because a central tenant of the way in which the Justice Department investigates and a central tenant of the rule of law is that we do not do our investigations in the public."

Can we now put to rest the false info posted here on DU on several threads about the memo, and, while we're at it, how about stopping the numerous bash AG Garland and the DoJ posts and threads?

Seems to me that AG Garland pretty much debunked all that today.

1. I don't give a lot of credence to what people say.

I pay attention to what they do. Time will tell. The clock is ticking and we’re running out of time. If Dems don’t keep the house, all bets are OFF. If Joe Biden isn’t our President in 2024, AG Garland is out of a job. If the corrupt SCOTUS decides that state legislatures can overturn a free and fair national election then none of it matters.

62. DOJ didn't know Hutchinson existed until her

J6 testimony. DOJ is watching J6 hearings because DOJ with all its superior investigative power, supeona power, etc... Is still not investigating the true causation of J6. J6 Committee has said many times how frustrated they are with DOJ. J6 is on the front line of this war, they are the ones that know what is going on.

DOJ was stunned by Hutchinson's testimony, why was that? DOJ should have been the first to interview her, had they been doing due diligence!

I'm with others, in wait and see, attitude. DOJ has not given me confidence in their investigative diligence. J6 Committee has my confidence, and J6 Committee is questioning DOJ.

78. The time limit is not arbitrary.

If the Dems do not hold the house, the J6 investigation and committee are done. Republicans have promised to turn the tables and “investigate” Dems. If Joe Biden is not re-elected, Merick Garland is also done. I absolutely understand “doing the job right”. All of the doing and talking will not matter if the DOJ changes hands and it absolutely could. We have agencies such as the Secret Service and maybe others that are compromised. We have a SCOTUS that has announced they plan to hear a case this fall that could hand control of our national elections to state legislatures of which republicans hold 30 states. Merick Garland does not have the luxury of a whole lot of time. I assume he knows this.

81. I wish he had that much time

but he does not. If he is really waiting until after the Nov election…and I can’t imagine why he would if he’s really got a case…then what’s stopping him from waiting until after the 2024 election? Why the hell do elections stop the rule of law being enforced? If TFG runs again, as he says he will, will that stop AG Garland from moving forward?

SCOTUS may very well end free and fair elections…they are hearing a case this October regarding exactly that. How in the world can anyone in their right mind think they won’t do the wrong thing? We know who they are. It’s time to believe them. I hope Merick Garland believes it as well.

to make some people absolutely berserk. I get that they think Garland is just about to hand down all the indictments we could ever want. I get that they have total faith.

It doesn't anger me at all that they think this way. But it seems to really chap their asses that we think the way we do, and they seem to have a compulsive need to criticize our opinion and attribute bad motives to us.

I don't get it at all.

44. Just because they broke the law in front of us in our eyes

and the 1/6 committee is bringing a lot out in the public, the DOJ has to deal with courts and judges and evidentiary rules and have an argument for every defense they are going to throw at them. These investigations do not happen overnight and they are stretched by a lack of resources that Garland requested, but they intend to get the job done.

The committee is providing us with the story of what happened, they are not restricted by judges. We will learn the story but the DOJ has to put all of the crimes together and indict under the criminal statutes and make the case that is clear concise and will get a guilty verdict by whoever is on a jury. Just think of how many prosecutors and investigators it takes just to try one person. They have to get this right and we need to give them the time to do it right.

59. Yeah easy enough but there is many more criminal acts and they need to have

all the proper evidence. People don't always turn overnight either, they are looking to get it all. They have to break into phones and encrypted apps to get the evidence to compel a jury that may have a person or two who are sympathetic to Trump to be totally convinced. Not all evidence that we see will make it through the evidentiary process in a court. They will have a defense for everything and the DOJ need to be ready with proof to dispel their claims. It took over 2 years for the first prosecutions in Nixon, this is far more complex with nearly 1,000 defendants. Sheesh, get off his back.

I think such prosecutions are essential to the survival of the Republic to be frank.

Prosecuting a former president where one needs a unanimous jury to get a conviction requires having an air-tight case, and avoiding that appearance of political persecution is vital.

Garland seems perfectly suited to the job IMO.

32. I'm happy to be counted as a proud Democrat who knows there are forces who would like

nothing more than to bring our party down.

And I am suspicious of the attacks on Merrick Garland. This kind of shit doesn’t happen by accident.

35. It is quite curious that you requard people who trust in Joe Biden's choice for AG

as “shit stirrers.” LOL

Quite curious indeed.

43. Curious that this is your interpretation. I regard (by the way, it's "regard") shit stirrers to

be shit stirrers.

Gonna question my loyalty to Biden now, are we? That's kind of an old one. Go back to the manual. Surely you can do better.

45. Manual? Why are you accusing me of nefarious intent when such a charge is a pure fabrication

on your part.

Talk about a need to “do better.” I suggest looking in the mirror and to stop slandering Democratic Party loyalists on a forum for Democrats.

Good lord.

pure fabrication," isn't it?

So maybe you should stop doing that.

5. I'm starting to think the baseless attacks on Merrick Garland are being orchestrated
by persons who are not acting in good faith and who wish to sabotage the current Democratic administration.

66. And I continue to believe that this is this is likely the case.

The attacks on Garland are relentless and off-base.

Doesn’t seem accidental.

Like effieblack/Starfishsaver. That entity was supposedly a diehard Dem, and we all know how that turned out. Prickly one that one was. Always right, and constantly putting down others.

10. After one of his multiple impeachments....

When he once again escaped conviction by a McConnell led Republican senate, Trump repeated the old quote, “If you come at the king, you better not miss”

My guess is Garland is really smart and capable and that’s why Obama wanted him on the USSC, and he’s really up to date on lots of evidence since Biden has made him AG… and he probably has a much better idea than most pearl clutchers out there as to when there is an actual airtight case that the The Fat Ole Windbag can’t squeak out of. He’s meticulously and responsibly building a prosecution that can’t be beat. When he comes for the king, he won’t miss.

16. Recommended.

Thank you for this. While I understand some of our friends here being confused by Rachel's reporting, if one takes the time to put things in the proper context, it was clear that AG Garland had in no way indicated that the criminals from the Trump cult would not be prosecuted.

I think it is likely that Meadows will be indicted before Trump. It seems likely, in my opinion, that Meadow's legal team knows that the Trump team plans to blame him for the insurrection -- indeed, that has been reported as recently as this week. Thus, they are likely to try to negotiate a deal with the DOJ in the coming weeks and months. And I think that Trump would be more likely indicted next year.

17. If Fani Willis finally indicts him and gets a conviction...

... and appeals confirm his conviction even up to the SC, indicting him on the federal level will be a slam dunk.

He can say "no person," not even a former president, was above the law, All he wants. Prosecuting is another story.

86. It rings hollow. It's about to be 2 years post attack. Has maralago been

searched yet? He says nobody is above the law, but you and me would have been searched by now, with at least 1 hour in jail. We don't get 2 or 3 years to destroy evidence and commit more crimes.
