Garland Waited Weeks to Authorize Urgent Nat’l Security Raid on Trump

'Sure makes it clear that what they were looking for wasn't really serious if you could take the weekend off before acting on it... '

(Chris Parker, Headline USA) Attorney General Merrick Garland spent several weeks plotting his decision on whether to approve or deny the weaponized raid on former President Donald Trump’s  Mar-a-Lago home, reported the Wall Street Journal.

Top officials from both the FBI and DOJ met several times during those weeks to discuss the warrant and their political hit job. The hesitance contradicts Garland’s previous claim that it was “urgent.”

Rudy Giuliani called out Garland on that contradiction, noting that the DOJ dragged its feet even after a warrant had been obtained.

“The warrant for Mar-a-Largo was signed Aug. 5, but not executed until Aug. 8,” he tweeted. “Sure makes it clear that what they were looking for wasn’t really serious if you could take the weekend off before acting on it.”

Now, Garland may spend several more weeks deliberating charges against Trump. Doing so would satisfy his leftist bosses, but it would also create an even more contentious political environment. He’s already facing an investigation by judiciary Republicans who have called the raid an “overreach.”

“He’s both extremely careful and he understands the critical role of an attorney general in these circumstances,” former Deputy Attorney General Jamie Gorelick told the Journal. “He appreciates the context in which this is occurring.

“I don’t think he considers politics at all, but I do think he recognizes the seriousness of actions against a former president.”

A disregard for politics clearly explains why Garland and the DOJ have failed to take any action against the transgressions, both alleged and documented, of leftists lawbreakers like Hillary Clinton and the president’s crack-addict son, Hunter Biden.

Still, Garland’s Justice Department continues to try protecting itself by ignoring legal pressures to release the affidavit that served as the warrant’s basis.

Both Democrats and Republicans have slammed the FBI and Justice Department for stonewalling them since last year.

“There is something going on over there [at the Justice Department] that looks an awful lot like a formal policy not to answer our questions,” said Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I. He was joined by Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, in demanding both agencies to be more forthcoming with Congress.

“I’ve been trying to get a phone call with the attorney general for more than a month now, and all I want to do is get an update on my request for information—answers to letters,” Grassley said.
