Live action shot of US AG Merrick Garland

I have mixed feelings about this, as our track record on Special Counsels has not been, um, successful:

Attorney General Merrick Garland has named a special counsel to oversee the criminal investigation into former president Donald Trump’s possible mishandling of classified documents at his Mar-a-Lago club and residence, as well as key aspects of the Jan. 6 investigation.

Garland announced his decision Friday afternoon, tapping Jack Smith, a longtime federal prosecutor who has in recent years been working at the International Criminal Court at The Hague. The announcement comes three days after Trump formally declared himself a 2024 candidate for president.

“Based on recent developments, including the former president’s announcement that he is a candidate for president in the next election, and the sitting president’s stated intention to be a candidate as well, I have concluded that it is in the public interest to appoint a special counsel,” Garland said at a news conference at the Justice Department.

Well, it took him 2+ years to get this far. I hope the Jan. 6 Committee has already turned over all their evidence and can get this guy up to speed fast.

    Stalling, pure and simple.

    In a way, Garland’s craven cowardice in the face of these criminals has an upside. The malignant cancer that calls itself the Republican party is a political problem. We have to stop depending on the courts to do what we must do to protect our nation, one vote and one election at a time.

  4. I am often called special – in fact when people do that, they’re so serious that they use air-quotes. And my wife has confirmed that my councilor services are helpful even as she averts her eyes to the heavens. I feel this makes me easily as qualified as anyone else who might be picked.

    So here, let me help you M. Garland; yes, he should be charged. Now.

    There, problem solved. Send all the money I just saved to you M. Tengrain for services rendered.

    And now, on with our lives…

    Just a way to wash his hands of the whole mess. Trump is untouchable and all the special prosecutors in the world will never change that. Trump is the devil that won’t die.

    It may not be of any use at all, except that it got Donny’s panties in a knot. I have to give credit to anyone that causes the Ketchup to fly. He so loves being in the news, just not that kind of news, and it’s always good for an outburst or two of tRump gibberish.
