Attorney General Merrick Garland names special counsel in Justice Dept.'s Trump probes

S E E D E D   C O N T E N T



WASHINGTON — Former President Donald Trump will be the subject of a second special counsel investigation, this one focused on his handling of   classified documents found at his Mar-a-Lago home   and "key aspects" of the investigation into   his role in the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol , a senior Justice Department official told NBC News on Friday.

Attorney General Merrick Garland is expected to make the announcement at a news conference on Friday afternoon at Justice Department headquarters. The news was first reported by the   Wall Street Journal .


Trump   announced   his 2024 presidential campaign earlier this week. Given that Garland was appointed by President Joe Biden, naming a special counsel would give Garland more distance from the investigation into Trump, who could be Biden's rival if the president decides to run for reelection.

Oh darn, it's some character named Jack Smith ... now that's enough to hone the knife collection for his purple(?) back.

Maybe he's matching the far slower pace of Durham. /s

I think Durham is asleep at the wheel.

More like Merrick Garland is trying to become Jeff Sessions.  Remember AG Sessions?

Ah yes, he was one of the best and brightest of the promises made, promises kept crowd. My head is still spinning. Yours?
