By sending the FBI agents into Donald Trump’s house ona legal serach warrent?
The Attorney general has put himself square in the crosshairs of Donald Trump and his crew….
Garland is well aware of those in the Government who go after him….
These past Federal Cops have been fired and Trump wanted a couple of them put in jail….
If Donald Trump get’s re-elected?
One would think the Trump taste for revenge would reach out for Garland and maybe even FBI Director Wray….
And you CAN bet Trump would get someone willing to do his dirty work….
Why do I keep thinking of Russian President Putin about this?
I said this here several days ago….
Merrick Garland Can’t Afford to Miss
Ross Douthat: “The lesson to be drawn is emphatically not that Trump needs to be given permanent immunity because of a “don’t arrest ex-presidents” rule or out of fears that his supporters will take to the streets or launch lone-wolf attacks on the F.B.I.”
“The lesson, rather, is that if the agents of the state come after Trump, and especially now when they come as representatives of an administration that might face him in the next election, they can’t afford to miss.”
“Not only in the jury box but also in the court of public opinion, it needs to be clear, crystal clear, what separates any crimes he might be charged with from — for example — the perjury and obstruction of justice that didn’t send Bill Clinton to prison or the breach of intelligence protocols that Hillary Clinton wasn’t charged with. You don’t just need a plausible legal case that tests interesting questions about presidential declassification powers; you need an easy-to-explain slam-dunk.”
“So if you have Trump taking design documents for nuclear weapons and shopping them to his pals in Saudi Arabia, congratulations — you got him; lock him up. If you have him taking boxes of notes from foreign leaders because he’s a childish egomaniac who thinks that he’s earned his White House souvenirs, well, then take the documents back, declare victory for the public interest and stop there. And if he took documents about the Russia investigation itself, of the sort that he wanted declassified during his presidency, well, tread carefully, lest you trap us all in an awful time loop where it’s forever 2017.”
