Attorney General Merrick Garland gave a speech today at the Justice Department that is a winner!
He made clear that no stone would be unturned to hold everyone at all levels accountable for the January 6, 2021 Insurrection!
This should be a warning to Donald Trump, his family, his associates, and to right wing cable news stations, and to members of Congress who collaborated and conspired against American democracy!
Justice takes time, but be assured, Justice is coming!
Finally, the Justice Department and Attorney General Merrick Garland have decided to start indictments against January 6, 2021 US Capitol Insurrectionists, with the first indictment being leveled against Trump advocate Stephen Bannon, former White House Chief Strategist and Senior Counselor.
All of the top people behind the conspiracy—including, among others, Mark Meadows, Michael Flynn, Rudy Giuliani, Stephen Miller, Daniel Scavino, Jeffrey Clark, Bernard Kerik, Jason Miller, John Eastman, Nicholas Luna, John McEntee, and Kayleigh McEnany—will, in short order, face indictments if they refuse, as Bannon did, to ignore the January 6 House Committee subpoenas.
The survival of American democracy, and the need to insure that what happened on January 6, 2021, never happens again is urgent. This is particularly so, since, if the Republicans gain back the House of Representatives in 2022, and Kevin McCarthy becomes Speaker of the House, then the nation’s future is at stake, with authoritarian Fascism taking over with those who do not care about what is ethical, moral, or legitimate.
A substantial group of Republican Governors are abusing their power, recklessly endangering the lives of their constituents, and causing unnecessary deaths by fighting the federal government on the issue of vaccinations and masks.
Ron DeSantis of Florida, Greg Abbott of Texas, and Kristi Noem of South Dakota, all angling to run for President, are demonstrating criminal behavior, and should all face criminal indictments brought by the US Department of Justice.
The COVID-19 Pandemic has now caused more deaths than the American Civil War over four years; the Spanish Flu Pandemic at the end and after World War I over three years; and the combination of the two World Wars.
If these three Republican governors, and others such as Kim Reynolds of Iowa, Tate Reeves of Mississippi, and a number of others had taken the health crisis seriously, we would not have lost so many people, and the likelihood is the final total will be more than one million deaths.
Donald Trump, ignoring the health crisis, and promoting wrong medical alternatives, should also be held criminally liable for the disaster we are still facing!
