    As a private citizen I've watched how the previous administration defiled the Dept. Of Justice to the Dept. Of Just-us. I watched as they gutted the Civil Rights Dept. So don't question or ask me about partisanship or political motivated investigations. My justice dept will investigate every injustice that was perpetrated by anyone in this administration. Not for political gain but for PRECEDENT. So no other who is elected won't allow the office to think anyone in an elected office is above the laws of this nation.

  • vwgames49

    Republicans are probably terrified that the guy who investigated and prosecuted The Oklahoma City Bombers, The Atlanta Olympic Bombers, and Ted Kaczynski is now in a position with extreme investigative power If only he was in a permanent position where he was barred from doing any investigations of any kind

  • hutzelweibl

    That storming of the Capitol was a false flag attack, carried out to hurt the republican supporters. There was even a journalist who was there and described it in detail. In my opinion you should find out who really gave the orders and paid those acting as rioters!

  • Paul

    Garland must be nuts! He said the capitol riot Jan. 6th was more serious than the 1995 Oklahoma City federal courthouse bombing where 168 people were killed including 19 children in a daycare and 3 pregnant women - and injured more than 680 others - destroyed or damaged 324 other buildings within a 16-block radius - and destroyed 86 cars - causing an estimated $652 million worth of damage!

    I find it a bit odd that someone being considered for AG has to even SAY that he will supervise the prosecution of people who invaded the Capitol, causing damages, and threatening the lives of various members of Congress. What the heck has happened to America that ANYONE would EVER be considered for any judicial role who would NOT prosecute such things!??? I hope so much that his confirmation goes through immediately!

    Will you commit to investigate and prosecute the Dems that paid hate groups like BLM upto 30k to instigate the false flag riot on the 6th? Kind of odd that the only ones that knew this would happen like Pelosi are the same ones that denied extra security. Sounds to me like Dems already knew it was going to happen and actually made it happen so americans could not hear the evidence of voter fraud.

    Pinky power and colonial cronyism are the world's biggest threat both domestically and internationally. 140 Capitol police suffered brain injuries, smashed spinal cords, cracked ribs, eye injuries, stabbings and 5 related deaths. Criminal Lawsuits can now proceed for the 140 Capitol cops, 550 congressional staffers and 512,590 dominated Covid families. 35 Officers have been investigated and found to have helped the rioters. How do you open a locked door? Ask a cop to open the door with the key.
