Watching the live testimony, Garland seems to be frail and senile

When he was being interrogated by Gaetz (I think it was him) about the whether or not the indigenous people "violently" protesting at the capital should be considered the same crime as Jan 6th and should be considered "domestic terrorists" and would he prosecute these liberal protesters the same way. Garland stammered and said he didn't know the facts of the case and wouldn't comment on it. He reiterated that they would face the same justice if guilty of domestic terrorism.

Hell NO! That was truly the WRONG response. He should have stood up and said that INTENT is the key to whether they should be charged as terrorists. By definition, terrorism is an act of using violence to affect political coercion. Not the same thing as a demonstration against a policy.

He should have said the word INSURRECTION and shut that asshole up.

1. So now we're diagnosing him with dementia?

Complaining he wasn't filling everyone in on all of his investigations wasn't enough? Now we've got to question his mental fitness.
Jesus...

3. Actually, I thought he seems calm and measured

In the face of some pretty ridiculous attacks. Sure, maybe standing up and pounding his fists on the desk would be fun to see, but that ain’t gonna happen.

5. A number of the insurrectionists are being charged in a way

that allows, if convicted, for a sentencing enhancement for terrorism. AG Garland is doing fine.

6. Sure. Intent is huge. But if intent were all, most of the thousands

who came on Jan 6 would not be guilty of intending insurrection. Because they didn't. A lot of them, including ones who ended up going inside with others, came to protest. Some at most came to create delay and help foil the Democrats' attempt to steal the election, but to save, not overthrow, the government.

Whatever. Someone who helped rob a bank but honestly thought the money belonged to their friend and was his to take still robbed a bank.

7. Wasn't Gaetz

It was some other Florida putz.

Garland's voice did seem to quaver a bit, though. Not easy responding to demands for a special prosecutor to investigate Hunter Biden's art sales, etc.

10. Same. There is no reason for him to go into specifics for hypothetical situations or situations

he doesn't have all of the information on. His more general responses are carefully crafted.

Interesting, but I can't agree. Can you expand on what gave you that impression, perhaps?

15. Words matter.

The phrase “frail and senile” are loaded. I didn’t see his testimony, but I disagree with the stated reason for this assessment.

20. Gee, so glad people on social media know so much about the law

and are so experienced in it that they can opine on what the Attorney General of the United States should be saying.

And, also a medical professional, able to diagnose over the TV.

23. He didn't announce he was throwing Trump in jail without bail

Therefore he is senile.

21. Merrick Garland is far from frail and even more further from being senile. I've been watching...

....almost the entire hearing and he hasn't stammered once.

He cannot, as Attorney General overseeing an ongoing investigation, characterize what happened as an insurrection.
