“Calling Mike Pence…”

This is a hopeful sign that US AG Merrick Garland might not be completely dead:

Justice Dept. Requests Transcripts From Jan. 6 Committee

The Justice Department has asked the House committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack for transcripts of interviews it is conducting, which have included discussions with associates of former President Donald J. Trump, according to people with knowledge of the situation.

The move, coming as Attorney General Merrick B. Garland appears to be ramping up the pace of his painstaking investigation into the Capitol riot, is the clearest sign yet of a wide-ranging inquiry at the Justice Department.

The House committee has interviewed more than 1,000 people so far, and the transcripts could be used as evidence in potential criminal cases, to pursue new leads or as a baseline text for new interviews conducted by federal law enforcement officials.

As we’ve said before, Federal Grand Juries do not need to have direct witnesses to make charges. They could interview the Committee Members and just ask, “tell us what you’ve learned” and that counts.

Or they could ask for transcripts and make charges from there.

This is good news.

    I’d have Nancy tell Merrick, “Enforce our subpoenas, and you can have your transcripts.”

    Someone might scream, “You didn’t even ask Congress for any evidence,” after his term expires without having defended his country by prosecuting the clearest case of sedition since the Civil War.

    Success. Another checkmark on the Garland CYA list.

    Or the Republicans don’t know enough of what the Jan. 6 Committe has, and moles inside the DOJ have been working on Garland, trying to get him to request the work product so they can leak it to mount a defense. And Garland walks right into it.

    I’m eager to be proven wrong here, Merrick. My opinions are based on your performance so far. Just do your fking job.
