Some House Democrats should move to impeach Merrick Garland for allowing statutes of limitation to run out and for not indicting Trump

Merrick Garland should indict Trump today. If he doesn’t, Democrats should impeach Garland tomorrow.

The Democrats and “little d” democrats in the House and the Senate are in the middle of an all-out war with the Republicans for the future of the Republic–even if they are unaware of this fact, as often appears to be the case.

Merrick Garland has demonstrated in his year in office–beyond a shadow of a doubt–that he is not the General America needs to lead a victorious army to conquer the anti-democratic forces seeking to overthrow the Constitution and the rule of law in the United States.

A year of impunity for Trump and his felonious co-conspirators is enough, enough already.

It is time to replace or remove Garland, and to end the state of impunity in the country that allows Trump to run around organizing his forces for the next Republican attempt to seize power by unconstitutional means.


Democrats should impeach Attorney General Merrick Garland–UPDATED December 24, 2021

Having sworn in his confirmation hearings that he would not allow political considerations to influene his decisions to prosecute individuals, he has blatantly violated his oath and his duty under the Constitution and the law.

Specifically, he has failed to initiate prosecution of Donald Trump and his many co-conspirators for the many electoral crimes committed after the November 3, 2020 presidential election, or for the many instances of obstruction of justice including witness tampering committed if full view by Trump. Among these apparent crimes are the 10 instances of obstruction of justice laid out, in explicit detail and with summaries of the relevant evidence, in the Mueller Report.

There appears to be a conspiracy of silence among Democratic leaders to not even discuss the issue of whether Trump should be prosecuted.


Should Trump be indicted?

We have set forth the considerations which we believe argue strongly for the indictment and prosecution of Donald Trump for his election-related and other crimes, and for the prosecution of his Republican co-conspirators who joined him in a vast conspiracy to overthrow the election and the Constitution of the United States.
We are faced with a Democratic conspiracy of silence regarding whether Trump should be indicted. It is not a criminal conspiracy, like Trump’s conspiracy to overthrow the election and the Constitution, but it is a conspiracy in the broader sense of the term.
Let us now consider the arguments for not prosecuting Trump and his co-conspirators.
