This administration played right into the hands of extremists to get elected.
Doing so led to many promises made, promises that have not been kept, especially on the Donald Trump front.
Now many of those are looking for a head on a platter and they would prefer it to be Merrick Garland.
Believe me, if Merrick Garland thought he had a one percent chance of issuing charges against Trump and making them stick, he would have done it.
But this goes well beyond that.
If you look at the charges being filed against January 6 rioters, nobody has been charged with starting an insurrection.
It may seem small, but it is a huge deal, especially when you have a House committee regularly calling January 6 an insurrection.
Something else we have not seen is formal charges for a true organizer of the riot, and there is good reason for it.
While the rally was planned, the riot that followed was not.
I am sure a few bad actors had nefarious plans in mind, but organized planning of an insurrection… no.
Even so, many atop the Democrat Party want these charges filed, and if they are not, they want Garland’s head.
Rep. Ruben Gallego (D-AZ) stated, “I think Merrick Garland has been extremely weak, and I think there should be a lot more of the organizers of Jan. 6 that should be arrested by now.”

About 700 people are facing charges, with about 10 percent of that group having already been sentenced.
On the sentencing thus far, Gallego stated, “I think some of them are doing criminal acts, especially interference of Congress in terms of their duties.
“I think we have to certainly look at them.
“This is why we need to have an active attorney general that can separate those that were doing political work from actual work helping the insurrection and/or the coup plotters.”
They all keep going back to the idea there was some back room where this was all organized and discussed, but there has yet to be a shred of evidence.
There is surely more evidence regarding violence at BLM and ANTIFA riots in 2020, yet Dems could care less about charges being brought in those cases.
Thus far, there is no evidence of a plot or a coup. At this point, it is just an ill-advised political rally that went horribly bad.
As much as Garland would like to, even he cannot make insurrection charges stick in this case.
How would you characterize what happened on January 6? And do you think the events after the rally were organized or just got out of hand?
