IMPUNITY: The biggrest and most important story no one will cover
When will Trump be indicted?
Why are we asking this question five months after Democratic President Joe Biden has been in office?
A Pulitzer Prize is waiting for the Newspaper or Magazine that will field a news team to take this story on.
The Biden administration and Merrick Garland’s Justice Department have not convened grand juries and indicted Donald Trump and his Republican co-conspirators for the many electoral crimes and other crimes they committed in what amounted to a vast Republican conspiracy to overthrow the election and the Constitution.
All the attention has been diverted to the Capital Insurrection on January 6 and the violent demonstrators who seized the Capitol. Attention of the media has focused on the foot soldiers, and not the generals who sent them into battle. Trump and his Republican co-conspirators commited many acts of intimidation of election officials, and other acts of obstruction of justice. Why have Biden and Garland not prosecuted these crimes?
Many of these questions can be summarized in a single question: Why has Trump not been indicted?
Yet there is perhaps an even more important question in a fading democracy with a weakened press whose priorities are set, at least on cable TV stations, by how much soap the TV programs can sell.
Why isn’t the press reporting on the failure of Biden and Garland to investigate and prosecute Donald Trump and his co-conspirators?
“America has become a country of the Absurd,” The Trenchant Observer,” June 6, 2021.
There, we observed,
“It as if some foreign country that is an enemy of democracy had launched a massive missile attack on the United States that unleashed a tasteless, odorless gas on the entire population, causing total amnesia regarding certain tenets of democracy and the rule of law.
“One such bedrock principle of the rule of law is that crimes must be punished, suspected criminals must be indicted and tried, and, when found guilty, sent to prison.
“In the absurd country which America has become, however, the feckless Democrats have become complicit in the Normalization of Impunity for high public officials who commit political crimes while in office.
“If Trump gave us the Normalization of the Unthinkable and the Normalization of the Unforgivable, President Joe Biden and Attorney General Merrick Garland have given us the Normalization of Impunity.“

Which newspaper or magazine or news team will go after the Pulitzer that is just sitting there, like on a table, waiting for someone to pick it up?
