CNN Investigation Hits Darkest Secret of Merrick Garland’s Career

'Has the unraveling of the ‘Fedsurrection’ narrative opened the door to a much overdue reassessment of what really happened in Oklahoma City? ... '

(Ken Silva, Headline USALast week, CNN published an in-depth story about Oklahoma City police officer Terrance Yeakey, one of the first responders to the April 19, 1995, Oklahoma City bombing, who wound up dead under highly suspicious circumstances.

The story surprised conservative commentators both for its accuracy and its implications: that Yeakey may have been murdered because he threated to expose FBI foreknowledge, or perhaps even direct involvement, in the bombing.

“One wonders why CNN is bothering to resurrect this story at all? Given CNN’s status as the Regime’s media mouth piece, this question is even more puzzling,” conservative site Revolver News pondered. “After all, one of the chief ‘mop up men,’ responsible for covering up and managing the OKC narrative is none other than Biden’s current Attorney General Merrick Garland.”

Revolver News is correct: Garland helped prosecute Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh, whom the U.S. government claims was solely responsible for detonating the truck bomb that killed at least 168 people, including 19 children.

Contrary to the U.S. government’s long-standing claim, court records and FBI memos indicate that McVeigh had an unidentified accomplice help him carry out the attack. Moreover, records show that Garland knew about this fact, but helped suppress the truth.

The key record implicating Garland in a government coverup is the transcript from McVeigh’s April 27, 1995, preliminary hearing, which Garland led. The transcript, which can be found here, shows that Garland repeatedly objected whenever McVeigh’s defense counsel mentioned his client’s unidentified accomplice, “John Doe 2.”

Garland first objected when McVeigh’s defense counsel was asking an FBI agent about how many people witnesses saw speeding away from the crime scene after the bomb detonated.

“Two,” the FBI agent responded.

“Did this witness also identify the person that we know as number 2, ‘unsub [unidentified subject] 2’ at the scene?” McVeigh’s defense attorney further asked, referencing John Doe 2.

Garland objected to this question, telling the presiding judge that “unsub 2 is not before the court.”

The judge sustained Garland’s objection.

But later during the hearing, the FBI agent referenced “occupants” of the Ryder truck bomb—leading McVeigh’s defense to ask about John Doe 2 again, and for Garland to object once more.

“Did you tell me [the witness] saw occupants of a Ryder truck and there was more than one?” McVeigh’s defense asked the FBI agent.

“Objection,” Garland interjected. “The only person on trial at this hearing is Mr. McVeigh. It doesn’t matter whether there were two or 100 people in that truck, as long as there was somebody representing Mr. McVeigh there. It is discovery and totally outside of the scope of this hearing.”

This time, the judge sided with McVeigh’s defense, overruling Garland.

After McVeigh’s defense repeated this question, the FBI agent said: “This witness advised that there were two individuals in the truck. The individual resembling Mr. McVeigh was the driver.”

Despite this revelation about McVeigh’s accomplice, the U.S. government would go on to claim that the Oklahoma City bombing was a lone wolf attack. McVeigh’s lawyers, likewise, steered away from questions about John Doe 2 because—as Roger Charles, who served a brief stint on the defense team, later explained—identifying the unnamed accomplice would have also further implicated McVeigh himself.

Garland didn’t stay on the OKC bombing prosecution team for long. He was nominated to be an appeals court justice in September 1995 by President Bill Clinton.

Some 18 years later, Garland scoffed at the notion that McVeigh had an accomplice who remains at large.

“It’s the issue about conspiracy theories, about ‘Maybe somebody else did it’ or ‘You hadn’t done everything,’” Garland reportedly said in a 2013 oral history about the case. “I wanted to be sure we had done everything we could possibly do to find every person who was involved.”

But the records clearly indicate that Garland is aware of at least one person involved in the OKC bombing who hasn’t been apprehended—which, as Revolver News noted, makes it all the more strange that Democrat-friendly CNN would publish an investigation that could lead to some uncomfortable questions for the sitting attorney general.

“Has the unraveling of the ‘Fedsurrection’ narrative opened the door to a much overdue reassessment of what really happened in Oklahoma City?” Revolver News asked. “We think so. And perhaps the Regime realizes this, and is trying to get ahead of the story.”
