How can Garland delay indictment at this point?

Trump stealing nuclear secrets is as serious of a crime as you can possibly get. And we're just going to let him enjoy freedom for months waiting for an election he isn't even on the ballot for?

1. Unfortunately we've got a Rouge Judge Cannon who went full traitor first

Must be careful. The Trump supporters are fine with going traitor for this guy.

3. And override the Master-Baiting judge's decision?

The screams and howls would be deafening if he was indicted before the documents were reviewed.

4. I'd love to see Judge Cannon immediately imprisoned.

She is completely and totally unqualified, and a Trump handpicked shitbird.

But I'm willing to wait until her decision is resoundingly overturned on appeal, and shuts her few defenders here up.

I mean, if there is a group of MAGATs defending her, I'd think you'd want to expose them.

15. So let me get this straight...

You accuse members of being fans of Judge Cannon, but you hide behind the ToS when actually called on your accusations.
Gotcha!

Which is the point of this exercise, isn't it?

Again, have a blessed day. I'm so sorry for last night's news.

17. What was last night's news that you're so sorry about?

Are you implying that there was some bad news I found out? I'm curious what you think it is. Or are you just trying to sneakily accuse me of supporting TFG? Because that's what it sounds like, what with calling out DUers then hiding behind the TOS and claiming you didn't do that.

2. Unless Trump faces charges, US reputation and trust will remain greatly damaged.

The US has to decide if they want to remain a world superpower or not.

5. It's infuriating!

I can't believe that some judge that he appointed after he lost the election gets to put the brakes on the whole damned investigation when national security is at risk. Our allies must be shitting bricks. The longer we let him walk free & shoot off his mouth the weaker we look as a nation.

6. Your question implies that Garland is somehow interested in delaying indictments.

I hope this is not what you meant and you have a different take on what you posted.

But for now I would like to reply with a sobering reminder: if it wasn't for Garland, there would be no raid on Mar a Lago, there would not be evidence of Trump stealing nuclear secrets, and there would not be talk of Garland delaying indictments. If Garland wanted to delay an indictment, would it not have been easier to just not raid Mar a Lago?

18. Just a first impression after over a year of watching the man.

And I'm thinking Any competent attorney general could do the same as Garland. Or much better. Even Barr would have indicted by now. This is bad form, sir!

20. No offense, your 'first impression' is based on fact-free speculation.

Study Garlandís history, he is a hard-nosed meticulous prosecutor who wins cases against egregious criminals like McVeigh.

25. Channeling my inner Perry Mason: Objection. Calls for speculation.

Garland is a known. Any other hypothetical AG is an unknown. No grounds for your rosy assumptions regarding any other AG.

A reminder from half a tear ago: how many long term Garland critics anticipated then what Garland accomplished as of now? Not too many. And I am pretty sure none of his accomplishments, significant as they are, changed their attitude. As in the past, impatience is what drives their judgement. No progress seems to affect the pattern of their criticism. Only their expectations get more demanding.

19. It seems to me that Joe Biden's choice for Attorney General

(who was also President Obama's choice for the Supreme Court) gets regularly attacked on this forum.

Nothing suspicious there.

26. Garland would be an excellent Supreme Court Justice.

"Sentimental favorite" not the best qualification for AG, IMO. But I love to speculale and watch people get mad at me. Guilty of speculation. My apologies.

27. Garland isn't the Attorney General because he's a "sentimental favorite,"

but rather because he has a brilliant legal mind and a long history as a great prosecutor.

Yet he gets carped at here incessantly.

30. Mainly because he still seems to be giving deference

to the biggest criminal traitor in American history. Sorry, but if any other person on Earth did what Trump did, they'd already be in handcuffs. There would be no, "well let's just let things play out, keep investigating, and wait until after November to do something about the guy who stole nuclear secrets and incites terrorism."

28. But perfection is required for the case to reach the courtroom.

If a judge doesn't convene a grand jury, or the grand jury finds no reasonable cause to indict, or the defense lawyers manage to plant reasonable doubt in just one of the jurors, reaching the courtroom is meaningless. In fact, it would be harmful.

10. the reason we know Trump was in possession of

foreign nuclear secrets is because Garland's DOJ did something is never does..it leaked..and it leaked with Garland's permission..Garland wants the outrage, he wants foreign governments to come down on Trump's ass..and he's giving Trump humper Aileen the opportunity to vacate her odious decision..

23. DOJ does not link. Wapo story sounds like it came from intelligence community.

This is the first paragraph of the story:

ĎA document describing a foreign governmentís military defenses, including its nuclear capabilities, was found by FBI agents who searched former president Donald Trumpís Mar-a-Lago residence and private club last month, according to people familiar with the matter, underscoring concerns among U.S. intelligence officials about classified material stashed in the Florida property.í

14. To GP with you!

Damned if I know. But it sure looks like they're establishing their case for indictment. If not, these leaks make no sense, letting the world know how much we've screwed up, hiring a gangster (tfg) as president.

The FBI got the docs back. That may be all the DOJ has an appetite for.
