AG Merrick Garland’s J6 Hypocrisy Insults The Rule of Law

'Despite arresting hundreds and investigating thousands, the Justice Department never found an “insurrection” or “rebellion” to be charged... '

Cities across the country are under assault from skyrocketing crimes rates, while drug smuggling and human trafficking spill over an open southern border; rioters and looters responsible for millions of dollars worth of property damage and untold human injury during a year of burning and pillaging still roam free, and more police officers than ever have been ambushed and killed in the line of duty.

So naturally, the top priority for Attorney General Merrick Garland is to relentlessly pursue the savage outlaws and violent criminals who took part in a peaceful protest that unfolded last Jan. 6 and was highjacked by a posse of radicals who stormed the Capitol.

That’s literally what the head of the Justice Department said, without cracking a smile at some inside joke or being struck by lighting for the audacity of his insult to a country besieged by a wave of violent crime, during his remarks on the J6 anniversary.

“Those involved must be held accountable,” Garland said of the the protests and accompanying isolated chaos, “and there is no higher priority for us at the Department of Justice.”

Indeed, the investigation already ranks as the largest in Justice Department history, according to the Associated Press, with more than 700 people arrested and 350 others still being sought by the FBI. More than 5,000 subpoenas and search warrants have been issued, according to The Recount, and 2,000 devices seized, along with a compilation of 20,000 hours of video footage and 15 terabytes of data searches, and the receipt of some 300,000 citizen tips.

Yet somehow, despite the alleged life-shattering and democracy-threatening horror that unfolded during those four hours last January, all of that highest-priority investigative effort by the DOJ, combined with the months-long witch-hunt work of the J6 Inquisition, has produced little but minor arrests.

“The House is still trying to generate new evidence not found by the Justice Department,” wrote Jonathan Turley. “Despite arresting hundreds and investigating thousands, the Justice Department never found an “insurrection” or “rebellion” to be charged.

“Instead, most people were charged with crimes like trespass or unlawful entry,” Turley noted. “A few faced more serious charges of assaulting officers. This remains a protest that became a riot due to the reckless rhetoric of the rally and the lack of preparation by the Capitol.”

That didn’t prevent Garland from further exacerbating his J6 hyperbole, claiming that his pursuit of justice is embedded in America’s rule of law.

“There cannot be different rules for friends and foes and there cannot be different rules for the powerful and the powerless,” he said. “There is only one rule.”

That must be the same rule the DOJ used to aggressively pursue the rioters, arsonists, lawbreakers and looters that laid waste to cities during what leftists call the “mostly peaceful protests” endorsed by BLM and Antifa.

“Where’s the deep investigation,” wrote Red State, “of the organizers of the targeted leftist rioting near the White House over three days that injured more than 60 law enforcement officers that, had rioters setting multiple fires including at St. John’s church, and so concerned the Secret Service they allegedly raced President Donald Trump to a bunker?

“Where’s the investigation of constant attacks for more than 100 days in a row on the Portland federal courthouse, with dozens of federal agents and local police injured?”

Valid questions, one and all, but don’t expect any answers from Garland. He’s too busy burning through millions of taxpayer dollars hunting down J6 protestors, parents concerned about their kids’ education, and political foes of the Biden administration.
