"Enough is enough! Garland has all the evidence he needs but is not doing his job. He should have indicted Trump by now or get off the pot !!Ē

This is something we heard lot now, even from many of those on the left.

Teri Kanefield, probably better than anyone else, explains why such thinking is wrong and why it is dangerous for our democracy.

Most people wonít read Teriís breakdown all the way through. She gives a very brief history of how we got to this point and then explains the danger of rushing an indictment through. For those folks who do read it, It'll probably make most of them feel a bit better and have a better understanding of what Garland and the Justice Department is doing.

    I quickly skimmed the article but will read it completely later. I am predisposed to agree with Kanefield. I have complete confidence in Garland and no issue with his methods or pace.

    Personally, I am happy to have the sword of Damocles in the form of multiple indictments hanging over Trump's head. Not only must Trump have some sleepless nights, the longer his wait and frustration, the more he publicly self-incriminates himself.

    John Durham is the most recent example of what NOT to do in regards to politically-charged indictments. See link below.

    pb predicts that, Garland will do it after the election. If he acted now, so close to the election, Dems across the country would pay a heavy price.

    Remember pb. After the first election, Garland will bring ridiculous charges against Trump...which will help Trump politically in the end.

    AND...

    ...Garland will also engineer a slap on the wrist for Hunter...

    ...and...

    ...House GOPs will absolutely incinerate Garland under oath in hearings in 023.

    Curt, Although it takes a few minutes to read but I found well worth taking 5 minutes to give it a read.

I also tend to agree with Kanefield, and I have to admit to succumbing to a bit of frustration now and then due to the the length of the investigation. Teri, however, reminds me once again of why thatís probably a good thing.

    I think Garland is decent guy, who is thorough, extremely qualified, and competent. Garland is person who will do things properly. With something as vital as this is to our country. I want him to take as much time as it takes to get this right.

    Islander,
    I am taking a break from a workshop project. But I usually read your recommended articles thoroughly.

    Garland has integrity. My friends were dismayed that Garland hadn't indicted Trump on some January 6th charge. I was and am patient. Plus the J6 case was iffy in that a number of people needed to turn on Trump, as is common in organized crime cases. Then out of the blue, the stolen/unsecured classified documents case happened. Trump managed to get attorney Christina Bobb to perjure herself. She now has her own legal problems. She has been seen testifying to the DOJ.

    The joke among ethical lawyers is that MAGA means Making Attorneys Get Attorneys.

    From the moment Trump went down that escalator in 015, your SwampMedia has been insane. I don't really blame you TDSers for being psychologically impaired over him. TDS is a mind altering drug.

    If you're able to be honest, you'll admit to thinking that Trump was in legal peril dozens of times over the past seven years...much to our continuing amusement.

    I know your SwampMedia is sincere...but it's NEVER been right about Trump. I won't believe any of this until it happens. Anyone who does is, well, a fool.

    As far as Garland is concerned. I think he was royally screwed by Mitch when he was denied hearings on his Supreme Court nomination...

    ...and, I think that now he's an angry, bitter, vindictive old man.

    He's the guy who sicked the FBI on concerned parents who attended their kids'school board meetings. That describes Garland as AG best.

    The flaw in your and other MAGA Republicans' belief that Trump has been innocent victim of an out-of-control judiciary/media since he descended his escalator should be obvious. Trump has always skirted the law and frequently stepped over the line. He's been in and out of court since 1973 when the Justice Department sued him for violations of the Fair Housing Act. That's long before he was on anybody's political radar. You often call him "despicable". You know that he's ethically challenged and has a broken moral compass. He is also frivolously litigious: he uses lawsuits and the threats of lawsuits as a method of intimidation.

    In June 2016, USA Today published an analysis of litigation involving Donald Trump, which found that over the previous three decades Trump and his businesses had been involved in 3,500 legal cases in U.S. federal and state courts, an unprecedented number for a U.S. presidential candidate.[1] Of the 3,500 suits, Trump or one of his companies were plaintiffs in 1,900; defendants in 1,450; and bankruptcy, third party, or other in 150.[1] Trump was named in at least 169 suits in federal court.[2] Over 150 other cases were in the Seventeenth Judicial Circuit Court of Florida (covering Broward County, Florida) since 1983.[3] In the 1,300 cases where the record establishes the outcome, Trump settled 175 times, lost 38, won 450, and had another 137 cases end with some other outcome. In the other 500 cases, judges dismissed plaintiffs' claims against Trump.[1]

    Curt,

    pb didn't say anything about Trump being an innocent victim. But, you TDSers have been expecting him to be hauled off to the pokey any moment now for a looooooooong time.


  8. by islander on October 20, 2022 7:58 am

    Hate~What's wrong with hoping Trump gets hauled off to the pokey? I would love to see that. I want and have wanted him to be held accountable for the things he's done for years now. Being a rich celebrity or even a president shouldn't give anybody immunity from accountability for crimes committed or for what they have done to other people despite the advantage they have over the rest of us to be lawyered up.

    That's is why we hope to see him indicted.

    I think Trump is a consummate con-man, flimflam artist, and a typical racketeer. I hope, and think if he is indicted, he'll be convicted for his crimes just like I'd hope anyone I believed guilty of the things he has done would be convicted and held accountable for their crimes.

    I think the feigned surprise or indignation that we feel this way expressed by Trump voters like yourself is phony and insincere.

    Isle,
    Again, you're talking legal action with "my feelings are...". Law isn't made up of your feelings.

    We KNOW the FBI used the Steele dossier which they knew was a fabrication, to gain access to now warrantless entry into his privacy (phones, phone tolls, computers, wiretaps to his and other offices of his administration) and others in his administration. Using that information is ILLEGAL.

    If you were a true supporter of the US Constitution, you'd go after that group that knowingly used that information to deceive judges, lie to the American and global population, and make a "name for themselves." THEN worry about Trump and your hatred for him.

    I agree with Hts that Garland's waiting until after the midterm elections.



  11. by Curt_Anderson on October 20, 2022 10:39 am
    I don't think Garland is "waiting" until after the midterms. It seems the court what with the special master and all being granted time to assess potential evidence before the DOJ can look at it is setting the pace.



  12. by Donna on October 20, 2022 11:36 am

    If you remember, months ago Garland made a point of saying that he would abide by AG Barr's rule of not doing anything that could influence an election. Although there's still work to be done on building cases, I would think that Garland would wait another couple of weeks to avoid the appearance of partisanship.


  13. by HatetheSwamp on October 20, 2022 4:45 pm

    Donna,

    I think that is certainly the case with Hunter's (and Joe's) crimes.


  14. by oldedude on October 21, 2022 5:05 am
    Lead,
    I agree with your post a few posts up.

    Curt- I agree the Trumpsters don't believe he's done anything. I'll say that he didn't do enough to warrant your (et.al) assumption he's the great Satan. But like the Trumpsters, y'all are so caught up in the illness to look at anything with an open mind. Like all politicians (with a couple of exceptions) everyone does things I think are good (or great), and some things that were bad (or horrible). I've even been able to give pedojoe some props when I think he did good, as much disdain I have for him.

    That's the huge difference between Lead and I vs. the sheep.
