I think I know why Garland's presser got a late start
Imagine how many times he had to rehearse that speech to make sure he could deliver it with straight face.
Seriously, I hope someone gets the story behind the decision to petition for release of the warrant. While I dont doubt the rationale as indicated in the petition, part of me wonders if there wasnt at least a little bit of an aha moment smile when they realized that Trump and his cult were out over their skis. Waiting 3 days for that to fully manifest itself was worth it.
I think I heard him say something like "we have filed a request to make public the warrant and inventory".
was waiting for everything to be in order before announcing the decision to petition for the release of the warrant. Getting all the necessary wording, signatures, presenting the petition. Plus there was the attack on the FBI.
