Merrick Garland is doing his job. I say this because of the chorus of negativity about Garland that we are subjected to on a weekly — heck, on a daily — basis. I’ve always said — look at an individual’s past actions to calculate their future actions.
And Garland’s actions have always been that of a man who cares deeply about the Justice system. He is also a man who doesn’t leak — ever. So it should come as no surprise that the New York Times is reporting that a federal grand jury has been assembled as the department of Justice probes how sensitive and classified documents ended up in Donald Trump’s Florida home.
We have always said — this story has wings. The DOJ is investigating whether these documents were “mishandled.” At least one subpoena has already been issued. That subpoena is to the National Archives and Records Administration. The prosecutors want the boxes of sensitive documents.
And there have also been requests for interviews. What this shows is that Garland is doing his job, and he is doing it well. He works in silence — so the fact that we have not heard anything before this isn’t a surprise to people who know the background of Merrick Garland.
There is probably not a better person whom President Biden could have appointed to lead the DOJ. I trust him fully and believe you can too. These boxes of documents will tell a story. Remember — ink on paper always speaks.
This does not mean that Donald Trump will be charged, indicted, found guilty by a Jury of his peers, and go to jail for the rest of his life. What it DOES mean is that he got away with nothing. This is only one of the many investigations into the lord of the lies. But it paints a picture, and it is a picture of Justice moving — slowly and surely but moving nonetheless.
