The rivalry between Donald Trump and Joe Biden took a big turn.
Americans were stunned it reached this point.
Donald Trump went nuclear after Joe Biden made one tragic decision.
Joe Biden continued to politicize the Justice Department and turn it into his personal political police force.
Days after Trump announced his re-election campaign Attorney General Merrick Garland appeared before the cameras to announced he appointed Obama prosecutor Jack Smith as a special counsel to continue the witch hunts against Donald Trump.
“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 stated. “Such an appointment underscores the Department’s commitment to both independence and accountability in particularly sensitive matters. It also allows prosecutors and agents to continue their work expeditiously, and to make decisions indisputably guided only by the facts and the law.”
Smith’s mandate was to investigate Trump over January 6 and the document ownership dispute.
Critics contend Garland appointing Smith days after Trump announced he was running against Joe Biden wasn’t even trying to hide the fact that the Justice Department is now working on behalf of Joe Biden’s re-election campaign.
In an interview with Fox News Donald Trump blasted Garland appointing a special counsel noting that it was just the latest continuation of the witch hunt that began against him six years ago with the Russian collusion hoax.
“I have been going through this for six years—for six years I have been going through this, and I am not going to go through it anymore,” Trump stated. “And I hope the Republicans have the courage to fight this.”
Trump added that the original Robert Mueller witch hunt turned out to be a bust and found no evidence of Trump colluding with the Russians.
“I have been proven innocent for six years on everything—from fake impeachments to Mueller who found no collusion, and now I have to do it more? It is not acceptable. It is so unfair. It is so political…. I am not going to partake in it. I’m not going to partake in this,” Trump added.
Trump – as well as many critics – wondered why Garland claimed Biden stating an interest in running for president led to a special counsel and why Garland would also not appoint a special counsel to investigate Hunter Biden when there is actually direct evidence linking him to criminal acts.
“Hunter Biden is a criminal many times over and nothing happens to him,” Trump declared. “Joe Biden is a criminal many times over—and nothing happens to them.”
In the document dispute the Washington Post reported that Biden’s investigators found no evidence that Trump intended to sell classified documents or release them.
Instead, the investigators determined Trump kept the documents at Mar-a-Lago because he believed them to be his property.
Likewise, on the January 6 investigation Trump contested the election using legal theories concocted by his advisors.
There is no evidence of criminal intent in either case.
Yet Garland appointed a special counsel who will now leak every development to the press at the same time Trump is running for president against Garland’s boss.
And Trump and many of his supporters see this as the worst act of politicizing the Justice Department yet by the Biden administration.
