Good Job, AG Garland! [View all]

That was a very good presentation, and it covered a lot of ground. Expectedly, he did not name names, but made it clear that they are going to go after anyone at any level, wherever there is evidence.

I'm very encouraged by his remarks. He's staying within the boundaries of not specifically naming anyone or divulging what investigations are producing in terms of evidence. He really has to stay within those boundaries.

However, this is not a wishy-washy Attorney General. That seems clear to me.

He is just flat doing his job. The problem is that many people don't understand his job very well.

He's on this!

You haven't watched it? MineralMan Jan 2022 #41
It is very unlikely that Trump will be convicted of anything but disgraced...I think he will be Demsrule86 Jan 2022 #52
