9. "President Biden has never said a word of criticism against his AG," WRONG.

The New York Times reports, “The attorney general’s deliberative approach has come to frustrate Democratic allies of the White House and, at times, President Biden himself." The Times says that "while the president has never communicated his frustrations directly to Mr. Garland, he has said privately that he wanted Mr. Garland to act less like a ponderous judge and more like a prosecutor who is willing to take decisive action over the events of Jan. 6.” Biden’s frustration notwithstanding, the blame is not only Garland’s.
