Biden Telling Staff That He Wants The Justice Department To Prosecute And Imprison Trump
There is an old saying, ‘Be careful pointing a finger at someone else, there are three pointing right back at you!” It seems Biden may have missed this out, he is so consumed with trying to put Trump in prison, he has failed to realize that if the GOP takes control of both the House and Senate, he could be the one on the chopping block.
Joe Biden is telling staffers that he wants the Justice Department to prosecute former President Trump and other political opponents.
In an article about Attorney General Merrick Garland ‘facing pressure as the January 6 investigation widens,’ The New York Times claimed Biden wants Garland to prosecute Trump.
The New York Times reported: “As recently as late last year, Mr. Biden confided to his inner circle that he believed former President Donald J. Trump was a threat to democracy and should be prosecuted, according to two people familiar with his comments.”
“And while the president has never communicated his frustrations directly to Mr. Garland, he has said privately that he wanted Mr. Garland to act less like a ponderous judge and more like a prosecutor who is willing to take decisive action over the events on January 6.”
One must wonder, with the DOJ looking at Hunter, his laptop, that has ties to the president himself, is this a redirection, where Biden is trying to direct the investigation away from his son?
The New York Times reported:
The Jan. 6 investigation is a test not just for Garland, but for Biden as well. Both men came into office promising to restore the independence and reputation of a Justice Department that Trump had tried to weaponize for political gain.
For Biden, keeping that promise means inviting the ire of supporters who say they will hold the president to the remarks he made on the anniversary of the assault on the Capitol, when he vowed to make sure “the past isn’t buried” and said that the people who planned the siege “held a dagger at the throat of America.”
Justice Department officials do not keep the president abreast of any investigation, including those involving his children, several people familiar with the situation said. The cases involving Hunter Biden and Ashley Biden are worked on by career officials, and people close to the president, including White House counsel Dana Remus, have no visibility into them, those people said.
The Justice Department has given no public indication about its timeline or whether prosecutors might be considering a case against Trump.
The House committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack can send criminal referrals to the Justice Department, but only the department can bring charges. The panel is working with a sense of urgency to build its case before this year’s midterm elections when Republicans could retake the House and dissolve the committee.
The problem is not that Trump has committed any crimes, even the DOJ came out and said he hasn’t, it is that he is a threat to the establishment, he could blow this whole system wide open, that is something that both sides see as a threat.
This is what Biden sees as a threat, something that must be squashed, no matter the cost. Rights? Those are just pesky things that we actually think we have, Biden will if he can see to it that all rights Trump and his family have will be thrown out the door. This is what they mean by Trump is a threat to the stability of the government, he is, he could expose the whole corrupt system.
