This announcement (Not from AG Garland..But from a Deputy Attorney General) is in response to the release of a DOJ memo from Trump Attorney General Bill Barr to staff essentally saying you don’t go after political targets unless you get an ok from the top…

“We’re going to continue to do our job, to follow the facts wherever they go, no matter where they lead, no matter to what level,” Deputy Attorney General Lisa Monaco said Tuesday in response to questions after speaking at a cybersecurity conference in New York.
“We’re going to continue to investigate what was fundamentally an attack on our democracy.”
DOJ traditionally avoids investigative action that might implicate a candidate in the 60 days preceding an election. But Monaco’s comments indicate the Justice Department may not stick to that norm, which is not an official DOJ policy.

The comments come as DOJ has reportedly been expanding the scope of its investigation into Jan. 6 but has yet to directly investigate Trump as a target….
