I'm actually astonished that anyone would expect Garland to reopen that Mueller mess. The way it turned out was a travesty, but it was already water under the bridge when Garland took office as AG. Chump should never have gotten away with that stuff, but it's too late now.

And as you say, January 6 and the Orange Hellbeast's attempts to overturn the 2020 election TOWER over the earlier stuff, and Garland obviously has to focus on that.

The ironic thing is, if Chump had just gone along with the election results and quietly left the White House in January 2021, he could have saved himself and a lot of other people a TON of trouble. But instead, he committed crimes of a magnitude no other US president has ever dreamed of, just because his malignant narcissism wouldn't let him accept being a "loser." He made some terrible choices that are getting ready to bite him in the ass good and and HARD, and I hope it hurts like hell.

The mess he's in now is completely unlike anything he's ever faced before, and of a magnitude that can't be overstated. Anyone who thinks Jack Smith is going to shrug his shoulders and let Chump skate is, I believe, deeply mistaken. Chump made some terrible choices durng his last months in office that are getting ready to bite him in the ass good and and HARD, and I hope it hurts like hell.
