Fresh update on "merrick garland" discussed on The Charlie Kirk Show

"Hear this. It's one of the, it's shockingly stupid. FBI decision makers in Washington and Miami thought that denying the former president a photo opportunity or a platform for which to grandstand would lower the profile of what they called the event. As if just rating somebody's private home, if we have a right to your home, where the FBI, the effort to keep the raid low key failed according to the FBI. It prompted a serious and furious response from GOP leaders and Trump supporters. What a spectacular backfire says the justice official, you really didn't expect a backfire. So there's only one or two explanations that operation Melania's closet, which we're now going to call this operation cross dresser is what we should call it. Just kind of in the spirit of J. Edgar Hoover's degeneracy. They really are so insulated with people that hate Donald Trump. They don't believe anybody still supports this man or this whole thing is a lie that I'm reading from newsweek. Both could be true. This is what the Department of Justice official says. I know there is much speculation out there that this is political persecution, but it really is the best and worst of the bureaucracy in action. The Department of Justice official says, look, the FBI wanted to punctuate the fact that this was a routine law enforcement action. Stripped of any political overtones, and yet they got the exact opposite. You go raid the winter White House and you go raid Trump's home, like, oh no, no, this is not political, okay? No, trust us. This is a routine law enforcement action. Both senior government officials say the raid was scheduled with no political motive. Can you believe this? This is what they say to newsweek. This Garland silent because I think he said, what just happened? There is a chance they did this without the approval of Merrick Garland too. There is a chance, and I just want to cushion this a little bit, that there's a deep state within the deep state. Think about that. I'm not handicapping that too greatly. I think Garland is the orchestrator. I think Biden knew about this too. I think some of this might be a cover up operation for Joe Biden as well. Again, these are all speculation it's theory, but according to this story, there is chaos within the DoJ right now. And we can't forget, by the way, Christopher wray, who just testified in front of Congress. Now this entire story I'm reading from newsweek could all be a major op, but I'm going to keep reading it because even in the slightest chance it's true, it shows our gut instinct on this program. We're going the right way. Our gut is correct. Okay. Both senior government officials say the raid was scheduled with no political motive. The FBI solely intent on recovering highly classified documents that were illegally removed from The White House wrong preparations to conduct such an operation began weeks ago, but in planning the date and time, the FBI field office and Washington headquarters were focused on the former president's schedule return to Florida from his residences in New York and New Jersey. Wait, if it's not political, then why are you learning about Trump's visits? Wouldn't you just go do it? The second source who told newsweek a senior intelligence official said quote, they were seeking to avoid any media circus. So even though everything made sense bureaucratically and the FBI feared that the documents might be destroyed, they also created the very firestorm they sought to avoid in ignoring the fallout. I almost refused to believe that our government is so stupid. If our government is this stupid, you are not safe. There will be a terrorist attack, a dirty bomb, another mass shooting sometime soon. If our government is this dumb arm yourself because you are not in good hands..

"That's what's so confusing to me, and it should be for you. And I want your thoughts, by the way, freedom at Charlie Kirk dot com because the silence of Garland. I think is very instructive. Now both could be true, by the way. More might be coming, all the while something might have went wrong. They might have went too heavy. Could you imagine if someone misunderstood in a meeting, hey, go subpoena Trump's documents and someone thought they said, go raid Trump's documents. That's unlikely, by the way. But I'm only inferring that because of the silence of the FBI. By the way, it's 30 agents for 9 hours would be 270 man hours. Sorry, I screwed up my math a little bit. Catherine emailed us freedom at Charlie Kirk dot com, Charlie, don't be surprised. This is the left's MO. They lob a bomb and won't respond. Call you names and walk away. They didn't make a mistake. It is possible they're planning more, watch your back. That's why I led with that. But there is still something suspicious about the silence of it. And even the liberal media is starting to get a little bit nervous about this whole thing. The New Yorker comes out with an article and says that the silence is not here after the Trump raid silence is not an option for Merrick Garland. That is 19 hours ago. The New York Post says if Merrick Garland doesn't give a solid fast reason for raiding Trump's home, he probably just reelected him. Everyday Merrick Garland is silent about the raid, the more they are losing the court of public opinion. 270 man hours, a 9 and a half hour occupation, Jamie emailed his freedom at Charlie Kirk dot com, Garland isn't taking credit for his terroristic rate on Mar-a-Lago because he was forced into it by somebody else. There's something not right here. And if you think this is all according to plan, it's unusual because they're losing even Democrats on this. They're losing independence on this, even the Democrat media is like, I don't know if we love this. Front page of The New York Times, high stakes gamble in divided nation. That's not exactly a victory lap for The New York Times to cover your raid. High stakes gamble in a divided nation, I think it's most likely that they're not done. Why would Merrick Garland speak when this was just the pregame? They go after Scott Perry's cell phone, who else are they targeting? Who else are they thinking of? Raiding. There's something else here, everybody. We have to be on our guard. We have to look a level deeper. Garland and this is, this is what's so frustrating. Garland has not even been asked to go in front of Congress for this. Obviously, because Democrats are controlling it. The silence is instructive. And there's a pattern here..

"I bet Merrick Garland resigns before the end of the year. That's right. That is my guess. My guess is Merrick Garland were resigned before the end of the year and go help his son in law, push for critical race theory in classrooms and go make money at some high price law firm. My gut was right, according to this story that just broke in the last couple of minutes. Remember I said, why is Merrick Garland silent? What is going on here? Well, a new story exclusive FBI informant has spoken to newsweek. The raid on Mar-a-Lago was based largely on information from an FBI confidential human source, who was able to identify what classified documents, former Donald Trump was still hiding even the location of those documents. The officials who have direct knowledge of the FBI's deliberations and were granted anonymity in order to discuss sensitive matters said the raid of Donald Trump's Florida residents was deliberately timed to occur when the former president was away. So either this right here, what I'm about to read confirms my gut as to Merrick Garland's silence that there was a mistake made internally, which I think might be true, or this whole thing is an op then I'm about to read. I might just be reading a total op and these people might not be as dumb as they're admitting, but wait till you.

"Hey everybody, today on the Charlie Kirk show. Why is Merrick Garland so silent? Is there more coming? A new press release or a new article from newsweek shows that there's dissent within the FBI and disagreement over this raid. Will we unpack that in so much more? I love hearing from you, email me, freedom at Charlie Kirk dot com and get involved with turning point USA Today at TP USA dot com that is TP USA dot com high school chapter or college chapter today at TPUSA dot com, support the Charlie Kirk show at Charlie Kirk dot com slash support buckle up. Everybody here, we go. Charlie, what you've done is incredible here. Maybe Charlie Kirk is on the college campus. I want you to know we are lucky to have Charlie Kirk. Charlie Kirk's running The White House folks. I want to thank Charlie. He's an incredible guy, his spirit, his love of this country. He's done an amazing job, building one of the most powerful youth organizations ever created turning point USA. We will not embrace the ideas that have destroyed countries, destroyed lives, and we are going to fight for freedom on campuses across the country. That's why we are here. Brought to you by the loan experts I trust, Andrew and Todd at Sierra Pacific mortgage at Andrew and Todd dot com. Where is Merrick Garland? You would think that after you raid a former president's home that you would at least get a press release, you'd think that the DoJ would mention this in passing silence, nothing. You go to justice dot gov, they have this Justice Department establishes reproductive rights task force. Justice dot gov, they have clicks of links of COVID-19 relief fraud scheme. Massachusetts construction company owner indicted for tax crimes. Okay. Nothing about the raid of a president, to give an idea of how extraordinary this raid was, it was a 9 and a half hour occupation, including over 30 agents, equivalent equivalent of a 180 man hours where Trump's staff were literally kicked out of Mar-a-Lago and now we're just waiting waiting and anticipation, where is Merrick Garland? And sun tzu's art of war, there's a great quote that says 1 may know the condition of a whole army from the behavior of a single man. Now, the silence is something I didn't anticipate. The raid surprised me to some extent. The timing of it. But generally, when I thought about it, we predicted here on this program. But Merrick Garland being the attorney general of the United States owes the country, hey, how did this happen exactly? What was the reason for it? Why could you have not issued a subpoena? Why a raid? Just everyone understands a raid is only necessary if you believe a crime is currently being committed or property is about to be destructive. Donald Trump was not even at Mar-a-Lago. How could you believe that property was about to be destroyed? And the judge who signed off on it is a very corrupt, weird dude. It's a very strange person. And we'll get more into the judge in a second, signed off on this, so here's my theory. There's only two explanations for why Merrick Garland is silent. There's only two explanations for this. And no one else is really talking about it. Why is Merrick Garland silent? Where is he? It has now been 36 hours post raid, and we don't have a press release. We don't have a tweet. We don't have a press conference. We don't have a comment from the nation's top law enforcement officer. Two explanations. Number one, and by the way, this actually could be both true. They're not exclusive or they could be exclusive. Number one, more is coming. That's the first explanation. That there will be more raids and more confiscations just yesterday, this confirms the current theory. Scott Perry chairman of the House freedom caucus had his phone seized by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. They are not stopping. I don't want to make you too afraid or too paranoid. However, if Merrick Garland is silent, it means that the window of the rating and of the confiscating is not yet over. Merrick Garland wants to let this play out and then do a press conference. That's horrifying, but it's very realistic. That's the first explanation. The second potential explanation is that something went wrong. Somebody might have jumped the gun, somebody might have signed off on something that was unnecessary. Somebody might have misunderstood. This could this whole thing very well. Could have been an internal mistake by the Department of Justice. Now, I know what you're saying, oh, Charlie, of course they want to rate it. That's not what I'm saying. What I'm saying is that it is more than conceivable. That our government is both evil, corrupt, and incompetent. You could be a mixture of all of that. Now, I do believe that people at the top level are cunning and machiavellian and deceitful. But it's also conceivable that they might have messed up, you see, if you're the attorney general of the United States and under your watch, you bring armed agents into Mar-a-Lago. And by the way, let me just say this. Praise God, no one got hurt, you got Secret Service watching over the property and you got federal agents coming. This could have been a friendly fire firefight praise. God, that didn't happen. Now, allegedly, they tipped them off and they said they were coming a couple hours or minutes beforehand, but still, I mean, why the guns, FBI, answer, shock and awe, intimidation. They want you to submit. However, if you're Merrick Garland and this is considered to be a success, why is Merrick Garland not taken a victory lap yet? Where's Merrick Garland coming out? And saying this was necessary, you'll see what happens. You'll see why we did it. And we stand by this. They're not even defending it..

More Reactions To The FBI's Raid of Mar-A-Lago

"Here's The Wall Street Journal editor. Well, first let me play a little audio because there's a lot of great audio on this yesterday. Let's start with senator Rick Scott on Fox business with degan McDowell, cut number 8. Well, first of all, it makes you mad. I mean, this is unprecedented. A former president potential opponent to Biden in 24 is house gets rated. We know the Biden administration targets their opponents. Merrick Garland's targets, democratic opponents. This is well, here's what needs to happen today. Separately, mayor Garland, Christopher wray, Joe Biden need to do press conference, take all questions, explain why they're doing what they're doing, what each of them knew when this should scare every American until we get answers. This should be, you should have unbelievable concern. I got more phone calls. Let's go over to Ted Cruz. Cut number 13. That's exactly right. What we've got to do is win control of the House and Senate so that we have the authority to engage in oversight. It was interesting that the director of the FBI was there for one round of questions. At the end of the round of questions, we were supposed to have a second round. He said, no, I got a plane to catch. I'm sorry I gotta go. He didn't want another round of questions as chuck grassley observed. Wait a second. You've got your own plane. The FBI has a private jet just for you, so you're playing to catch it. You just don't want to have any more investigation. We need serious oversight. We need accountability. The people who have been political and partisan need to be fired. And if they broke the law right, let's hear Marco Rubio say the same thing. Cut number ten. You know, an FBI raid looking for supposed classified documents is a ridiculous alibi. Unlike anyone else in the federal government, no president can be guilty of illegally handling classified information because a president has complete and final authority to decide whether something is classified or not.

Matt Whitaker Unpacks the FBI Politization of the Mar-a-Lago Raid

"Really breaking news episode today. This is a special episode that we're going to be discussing what just happened yesterday at Mar-a-Lago in Florida, the raid or the investigation with the FBI into Donald Trump's classified information that came from The White House a lot going on with this. But could not think of a better person to sit down and talk with than my friend Matt Whit or former acting attorney general U.S. attorney. Going to get a lot of answers today. So Matt, let's just go straight into this. Let's give people what they need. Mascot to have you back on the podcast. Doug, I'm always enjoy the time we spend together. And I look forward to having you on my show, liberty and justice soon. Looking forward to liberty and if you folks, have you not sang liberty and Josh, you gotta get on it. I mean Matt is killing it with guests and in the topics they're discussing. Great stuff is we go, Matt, let's just go ahead and dive into it. There's no way around this. If you look at this, I mean, and we're still fresh into this, and a lot of hot takes going on here, but you know, this timing, the thing about this, when you were attorney general, 'cause number one, there's no way this could have gotten done without Chris wray or Merrick Garland knowing about it. What do you think the internal dynamics were that you could imagine inside DoJ with this? Well, I think the internal dynamics are pretty clear. I mean, there was a letter that was sent from the national archives that there was concern about president Trump's handling of presidential records after he moved out of The White House and there was an attempt to resolve that with the national archives and at some point in time this letter was sent to the FBI asking to open up a criminal investigation and that's exactly what the FBI did. You know, Doug, there's a lot of decisions, as you know, that were made in this situation, but I think the most concerning decision that was made was, and I'm sure it was approved by Chris wray and approved by Merrick Garland as attorney general. And that was the execution of a search warrant instead of sending a subpoena or instead of continuing to negotiate on this issue.

"Hello. And all that rock. I don't. Wow, do you return home to just so much deliciousness? Deliciousness. Just a cluster F of all kinds of stuff. Yeah, yeah. By the way, speaking of Kevin McCarthy, you just said, first of all, isn't this interfering in an FBI investigation? Isn't that illegal? His threat is open threat to Merrick Garland. And then you just said someone knows a grand jury subpoenas coming. I mean, just the pants. You know, that is going on is just another layer of fantastic. Oh, yeah. I mean, you know, because if he does, you know, I love how we all sort of jokingly said, ha ha. He's probably got compromising material on everybody. If they raided his place and he has that kind of stuff, you know, I just love the I love the idea that they all think, oh man, all that stuff that he was blackmailing us with, they actually got their hands on. Right, we were saying could be national inquirer stuff could be Russia's stuff. We don't even know. Yeah. And I've read your tweet yesterday. You know Trump thought that anything in a safe would be off limits in a search like calling base while playing tag. So what it's called is safe. You can't. Yeah. But also the fact that they had to break into the safe means that they didn't cooperate. They didn't say, all right, I'll open the safe. It was like, I mean, I know he wasn't there, but he could have told somebody combination or whatever. You know what? I know saves her more modern now, but I like to think that he had just a big old dial safe. Yes. A man's eye safe. This is our second time and then political history that we're getting our safe because it wasn't a Dick Cheney's man sized space. Yeah. You also had a great point. You said for what it's worth failing to investigate a former president is more banana republic thing than actually doing so. I mean, it is, I have to say, the right wing has just fallen right into this bear trap, not knowing what they have or what they found, right? They're already screaming, they're planning evidence and blah, blah, blah, right? Newt Gingrich said that right yesterday. Frankly, I think they pointed out, they don't have any evidence of that either, right? Yeah, Trump truths social something out there about, you know, that he thinks they might have been planting evidence. And it's like, it's like, guys, guys, guys, you know, this is who you used to love, you know? This was until Trump became president. You were all about, you know, loving the FBI. And it's really astonishing to me. The other thing I'm loving is Fox News, which it seemed to be sort of steering away from Trump. Has now just come running back to his flabby arms. Like, oh, we still love you. We still love you. Yeah, so give me 21. This would be Jim Jordan. Okay. Yeah. Merrick Garland, Chris ray, come to the House judiciary committee this Friday and answer our questions about this action today, which has never happened in American history. What was on the war? What were you really doing? What were you looking for? Why not talk to president Trump and have you give the information you're after? This is unbelievable and understand the history here. One year ago, it was the Merrick Garland using the Patriot Act against parents. One day ago, it was 87,000 agents in a bill the Democrats passed to go harass Americans from the IRS and today we had the rate of a former president's home in America. Oh, my God. It's a wow. I feel like if he talks fast enough, he can outrun the law, but yeah, this has never been done before because we've never had this level of criminality before. Right, they keep making our point how unprecedented this is. Yes, right. And there was nothing in there saying he did not at any point say, and Donald Trump is innocent. Right. Right. You know? Trump hasn't committed any crimes? He hasn't done anything illegal. Here's new chambers. You've been with that. If you're not opening with that. He did it, but we don't. We want him to get away with it. Right. None of them said he's innocent. And that they were going to plant the evidence is planted, tells me they know they know what they found is incriminating, or they wouldn't have gotten the warrant. Yeah, Newt Gingrich said, if you have a fake committee, frankly, being covered by the fake news with a fake FBI, which, by the way, you'll notice it didn't allow anybody on the Trump side in the modern Lago. So we have no idea whether or not they plan the evidence. They're just asking the questions, rude. They're not saying they plan to have it. They're just asking, as you know. I mean, I mean, are you allowed to supervise the FBI searching? I mean, I didn't think that was a thing. That you're allowed to follow them around and go, oh, no, no, you can't touch that.

McCarthy Threatens to Probe Garland After Trump FBI Raid

"So Kevin McCarthy tweeted that out last night, he said I've seen enough. And went on to condemn the Justice Department and told Merrick Garland, you better clear your calendar, pal. And you better shave your documents. Because when the House and the Senate go Republican in November, there's going to be an immediate investigation into the weaponization of the Justice Department. And again, I'm going to continue all day long with the caveat if the raid was about what is reported to be about. A document's dispute with the national archives. National archives supposedly claiming that Trump took 15 boxes from The White House. And at the end of the day, they wanted documents back and supposedly, according to Eric Trump last night, with Sean Hannity on Fox News, they've been cooperating completely. And given them what they wanted,

Can the FBI Be Trusted?

"You have several years under president Trump, of the FBI, attempting to undermine the president of the United States on pretextual information, provided by the Quentin campaign on the basis of the Steele dossier. James Comey, the former head of the FBI, when he was head of the FBI, approaching Donald Trump to launder into the press, the Steele dossier, knowing that there was nothing in the Steele dossier that had been verified. He went to Donald Trump, he told him about it simply so that the media could then run with the story that the Steele dossier had been presented to president Trump and therefore it was newsworthy and BuzzFeed could run all of that material. For example, and then we got years and years of investigations down rabbit holes that led nowhere with regard to Russia. In other words, trust in the FBI is at an all time low. And yet it's the FBI under Christopher wray, apparently with a warrant that had to be signed off on by the DoJ and attorney general Merrick Garland. Now, initiating a raid into the former president of the United States. So here's the thing, could there theoretically, in some world, be it rationale for this sort of activity, sure? Sure, there could. But is that going to have to be a damned, extraordinarily solid, like rocks, I like bedrock solid, rationale, with serious underlying evidence, it had better be or what we are looking at is a political crisis.

"Another thing I want to reinforce for our audience though, George W. Bush originally wanted to put Harriet Myers on the court, and it wasn't until conservatives said, no, we've had enough. We want a real constitutionalist. It's a story of also the power of the people, which segues to a question I want to ask you about Matt, I want to spend some time on. And this is a piece from MSNBC. It looked, quote, Merrick Garland is acting like an attorney general is supposed to act as their investigating Donald Trump potentially going to indict Trump going after many Trump allies. What is your take on this outright naked and public weaponization of government against political opponents? Look, Americans have to wake up and realize that what's happening here is extremely serious. And you know, I don't see how you get back to normal any time within our lifetimes. I mean, what you're doing by criminalizing dissent by criminalizing the other side by using the power of government against the other side is you're starting a cycle in which both sides are going to have to do the same thing in order to keep up with each other in order to stay afloat in order to stay alive. And this is a desire for a one party state. And what you have to think is, if you were responsible, a responsible political leader, even if you were on the left, you would realize that by criminalizing dissent by trying to criminally prosecute your political opponents, you are, this is the height of irresponsibility. You are going to throw the country into a divide, a debate, a conflict that escalates.

"Adam Schiff has been as has Liz Cheney been openly. I don't know what the what's the word you'd use impatient, pressuring the Justice Department. I think that's fine though, right? It's fine for them to be outspoken about that. Yeah, I mean, as long as we're not openly bashing or spreading disinformation about the Justice Department, you know, in some large accounts going so far as to say they're in Trump's pocket or, you know, things like that. But yeah, I mean, we do need this. We need it quickly. It's just that this is the biggest investigation in the history of the Justice Department. And that was some language that changed between the last two Merrick Garland statements because he said one of the biggest now he's saying it's the biggest. And I think they have some really great prosecutors. Now Garland running this whole show. It's Matthew graves and his team. And Matthew graves was able to come in after Mike Sherwin, a Trump appointee nearly killed the seditious conspiracy case by talking about it openly, and he was going to be sanctioned, but was resigned before that happened. And he didn't want to execute search warrants on Stewart roads. He was doing his best to sabotage that case. And four Matthew graves to come in and be able to button it up. And to get Merrick Garland to sign off on seditious conspiracy charges, which is like the granddaddy of all charges next to treason. I think kind of shows that they're in it to win it, so to speak. And that they have the gravitas, the intestinal fortitude to charge something like that because I kept telling everyone chill on the seditious conspiracy stuff. It's going to be obstructing an official proceeding probably. But then they came out, swinging. And so I'm excited about that, but it is taking a long time, and I understand the frustration, particularly in the face of what we've had the last 5 years and what barred into the Mueller report. We didn't even get an impeachment out of that because of the spin and the controversy and I guess he didn't have enough pizzazz when he was on TV.

I mean, that's the one thing that struck me as the breadth of this because the other thing we have to talk about and you also tweet about is Republican lawmakers involvement. I mean, this goes through every branch of government, doesn't it? Yeah, you know, Merrick Garland is fond of saying and I agree with him. He said, look, we have to hold everybody accountable for their crimes, but we have to do it in a way that honors the constitution. Now, as a former career prosecutor, I embrace and I celebrate that sentiment. We have to honor the constitution in the way we go about investigating and prosecuting crimes. The problem is honoring the constitution is not a sort of part way proposition. The Fourteenth Amendment is part of the constitution. And the Fourteenth Amendment says, insurrectionists can't serve in public office. If you're a public official, you've taken an oath and you participate in an insurrection, you are disqualified. That's what the constitution says. So we have to honor the entirety of the constitution, including the Fourteenth Amendment, and time is running out so the Department of Justice has to tackle these insurrectionists who are running for reelection because if they don't, they will burrow back into government and continue to try to kill our democracy from within.

"Senator chuck grassley of Iowa has been writing letters to Merrick Garland and to the FBI director Christopher wray and these letters normally I'm not big on letter writing because I'm like a letter is nothing more than a kind of piece of paper that very often these guys are going to just toss into the trash can, big deal and sometimes our side has a tendency to think that if you write a letter, you've somehow done something. No, you haven't done anything. But in this case, we have grassley, who is an influential figure on the, in the Senate judiciary. And so it's the committee that has oversight over the FBI. And writing on judiciary committee letter had grassley makes two points. And both the points have been derived from FBI whistleblowers. These are FBI agents who have come forward and have apparently revealed two interesting things. The first one is that the FBI has been very involved in suppressing, suppressing investigations connected with Hunter Biden and the Biden crime family. So this is very telling that the FBI has been deliberately ignoring evidence and they have been using the fig leaf. In fact, they've been using the pretense that they know to be untrue.

Lastly, it sucks seeing politicians ignore violent crime. Well, focusing on a show trial. Because the crime hasn't touched their lives. They've got taxpayer funded security. You know, to many of us, January 6th seems more peaceful than trying to get home after dark. Think about all the criminals you got away with brutal crimes while January 6th protesters are still in jail. Maybe this whole time we should have been getting violent street felons to walk through an open door at the capitol, then they would have cared.

I think they will criminally prosecute anyone who tried to interfere in the transition of power. And it doesn't matter whether Trump thought he won or not. If you think somebody is a bad guy and you plan a murder for them and the police department finds out about it, you're still guilty of that. All right, hold on with your mellow drama and comparing an election to plotting a murder. Just pump the brakes a little bit. Excuse me. Make the name to make that hang on. Make the case. What crime? What crime are you specifying? I voted for Trump twice. I'm going to change the subject. What crew angle? What crime? Well, I'm not sure there is a crime. That's the point. He did try.

You said, you know, no uncertain terms the other day that no one is above the law. That said, the indictment of a former president of perhaps candidate for president would arguably tear the country apart. Is that your concern is you make your decision down the road here. Do you have to think about things like that? Look, we pursue justice without fear or favor. We intend to hold everyone, anyone who was criminally irresponsible for the events surrounding January 6th for any attempt to interfere with the lawful transfer of power from one administration to another accountable. That's what we do. We don't pay any attention to other issues with respect to that. So if Donald Trump were to become a candidate for president again, that would not change your schedule or how you move forward or don't move forward. Say again that we will hold accountable anyone who was criminally responsible for attempting to interfere with the transfer legitimate lawful transfer of power from one administration to the next.

I don't think it's wrong to say the boss should know if you're going to open an investigation on a political candidate for president. You should know. If you could have a prosecutor go off, either because they're rogue, but more likely just because, you know, they got excited about something that they see.

"merrick garland" Discussed on The Breakdown with Shaun King

"Merrick Garland is a really bad attorney general. Particularly, he's bad for the moment that we are in in the moment that we were in like he has majored in missing the moments. The United States Capitol was overtaken, the American president, Donald Trump, was deeply involved in his administration was deeply involved. And the DoJ has so badly bungled and has waited so long over 18 months now. To do anything seriously credible about the major players behind it, that it has started to frustrate mainstream democratic leaders like congressman James Clyburn, who was a moderate black Democrat from South Carolina, one of the key reasons Joe Biden as president. And many others, I see almost every day now, not super leftist Congress people, but like moderate Democrats say, what the hell is this man doing? Why is he waiting so long to take serious steps on the attack on the capitol? Yesterday, families in D.C. came from buffalo, families of victims of the white supremacist terrorist attack in Buffalo came. And testified and one of the children of one of the elders that was killed in Buffalo just said like, what are you all actually doing? Not just what is Congress doing, but what is the full weight of the entire government doing? What is the DoJ actually doing to confront white supremacy? You've already heard me say it. Who are your staff? What is your plan and show us your budget? And they're not really doing anything substantive. To stop more of these attacks from happening, again and again and again. And the base of Democrats are frustrated about it. Mainstream Democrats are just saying like, where are you? Like, we voted you in, James Clyburn, moderate black folk across the country, moderate white Democrats. What are you doing? About the attack on the capitol, what are you doing credibly seriously about white supremacy in America? And what are you doing to confront police violence? There are right now a hundred cases that the DoJ should have already opened up. To confront police violence in America. That they don't need Congress for. But it appears that Merrick Garland just doesn't have the proclivity. The desire, the courage, the gumption, the perspective, the the drive to actually hold individual police accountable with federal civil rights charges for some of the worst cases in the country. On that issue, he's hardly doing better than anyone from the Trump administration. There are so many cases. That we expected the DoJ to at least prosecute if you're not going to change this system at least hold some of the worst police officers accountable. But there refusing to do that. And what I continue to be told from people who either work in the DoJ or are close to high ranking officials in the DoJ is that Merrick Garland is just not into it. We always knew that his disposition was kind of quiet and low key, but it's not just his disposition. It's his actual effort. And again, we're nearing halfway through the first term. Literally we're getting to the point where people are going to begin announcing who's running for president. Against Joe Biden. Once we hit that two year mark, that's about when it begins to happen. We have huge elections this November. And instead of Democrats being able to stand on what they've done to confront white supremacy to confront the attack on the capitol to confront police violence, instead of them being able to do that with some real credibility, there's virtually nothing. It's maddening because it's an easy victory for Democrats. For the DoJ to do what they can actually do without some supermajority in Congress, but they refuse to do it. And this is always who Merrick Garland was going to be, but at this point, Joe Biden needs to really hear and understand in Merrick Garland really needs to hear and understand. That people are tired of how little he is doing about the most pressing issues of the moment. Listen, we only have two more days left of this podcast being on Instagram.

And by the way, Bannon didn't even lie to Congress. He just was under contempt of Congress, which was such a preemptive indictment. We'll probably not because Merrick Garland would have to indict himself and sign his own arrest warrant.

And we see that playing out in real time with Merrick Garland's testimony, play cut 53. Well, I just take this as the standard rhetoric from a failing campaign. And what they're not focused on is what's really happening in Virginia. I mean, we have parents trying to stand up for their children in school boards all over Virginia. I mean, we saw students walking out of the classroom yesterday trying to actually just please ask school boards across Virginia to look out for their safety. I mean, this is what this race is about. And Terry mcauliffe can't talk about any of these things because he's on the wrong side of every issue. Virginia, legitimate battleground state all because of the issue of parent rights, sovereignty, choice and education, and Merrick Garland is not backing down from this. He says, oh, it's all because of threats of violence towards school board members. He didn't even read the memo, Cruz exposed that. He believes that the greatest threat that deserves federal involvement and surveillance is parents. And yeah, you better believe that's gonna animate parents to vote against this current power structure. And here's what is so amazing to see in real time. How imprudent this has been for them. Let me just put this more simply and bluntly. This has been one of the dumbest calculations I've seen by the Democrat party in my ten years of doing this. They control every single chamber of institution. Now you're gonna go declare war on the one constituency you guys were actually doing better with. Be our guest. It's backfiring and it's not going back any time soon. They're doubling.

"So Merrick Garland is testifying in front of Congress right now. And not in front of the house in front of the Senate, though, which was very important, let's go to cut 64. Senator Tom cotton has said what we are all thinking, which is praise God and thank goodness that Merrick Garland is not on the United States Supreme Court. Let's play cut 64. This is shameful. This testimony, your directive, your performance is shameful. That's not true. Thank God you are not on the Supreme Court. You should resign and disgrace judge. You should resign and disgrace judge. I'm a big Tom cotton fan. I think he's terrific and it's exactly right. Merrick Garland is one of the most despicable, craven, self righteous, arrogant, and lowlifes ever to serve as attorney general of the United States. And we've had some. We've had some attorney generals. Trust me. The fact that Merrick Garland is now double and tripling down on the weaponization of the Department of Justice against moms and dads tells you everything you need to know. And I am seeing here as my friend senator Marshall Blackburn right now is touching is asking questions that Merrick Garland and the testimony. I'm seeing Republicans start to play offense. They realize that the rule of law is been temporarily put on life support in our country as Merrick Garland and his cartel of muscle mafia people try to put moms and dads in a headlock saying you better not show up to school board meetings. You better not challenge the

These school board association claimed that Parents were being threatened and bully or they were threatening and they were bullying they were harassing. They were threatening. They were domestic. Terrorists and merrick garland the attorney. General of the united states bit formed a task force to investigate parents as domestic terrorists. Except there's a side. The story we did not know at the time turns out the head of the national association of school boards coordinated with the biden white house the daily caller ross that they got the thorough foia.

"Where does Barbara streisand live or where she once live? I said, Charlie, what does that have to do with anything? Barbara streisand has a big house or had I don't know if she still lives there. And Barbra Streisand was very upset that a certain photographer who wanted to try and catalog the erosion of the California coastline happened to photograph Barbra Streisand's home. Barbra Streisand did everything she possibly could to try to remove this. Barbara streisand was very upset that anyone would dare photograph her home. So this was put on the Internet and Barbra Streisand found out that her house was photographed. She said this was a violation of privacy. Now mind you, this was literally just some environmentalists that was taking pictures of the coastline. So Barbra Streisand realized this and up until she decided to do something about it the image was downloaded 6 times. 6 people were interested in her home. But once she filed a lawsuit to try to prevent anyone from finding out where the house was, the picture became international news and was downloaded 420,000 times in the following month. The lawsuit was eventually dismissed because there really is no violation of privacy to photograph what you can see in a helicopter. This started something known as the streisand effect. It's a phenomenon that occurs when an attempt to hide, remove or censor information, has the unintended consequence of increasing awareness of that information. Often via the Internet. This is exactly what is happening right now with Merrick Garland and the national school board association. In an attempt to censor moms and dads to show up to the school board meeting, just like how Barbra Streisand wanted to censor her home from being on the Internet. We're only 6 people went and saw it. As a result of that and the national school board association and Merrick Garland going after, the grassroots push of parents that have started to care about what's happening to their kids education. We are now seeing more people talk about the national school board association story than ever before. I want to play a tape here of cut 83 representative chip Roy, who started to press attorney general Merrick Garland on the loudon county sexual assault scandal. So Merrick Garland is being called to testify in front of Congress. And what is every Republican asking him about? School board school board school board school board school boards. The thing that is winning 60 70 80% of independent voters of our schools have become radical indoctrination camps. You think that's what Merrick Garland really wants to talk about? Merrick Garland and the Democrats are being put on defense, saying, well, yeah, of course we read the letter from the national school board association. In an attempt to censor the issue, they've made it bigger than ever before. In an attempt to cover it up and suppress the idea that our education system has become that of the third world, it is now all of a sudden, the number one issue in loudon county, Virginia, the number one issue in Scottsdale, Arizona, the number one issue for swing voters is the decay of our government run schools. Let's play cut 83. Do you agree with loudon parents, you said it is not okay to allow a child that has been charged with a rape to go back into a school in that public school system. Again, I don't know any of the facts of this case, but the way you put it, it certainly sounds like I would agree with you. Yeah, I don't know the facts of the case. Is the FBI or the Department of Justice investigating the loud and school board for violating civil rights or under authority of state of violence against women act? I don't believe so, but I don't know the answer to that. Well, I don't know what's going on. It's not like I'm the attorney general of the United States, so let me get this straight. You're not using the attorney, the attorney general's office and Department of Justice to go after civil rights violations, but according to some letter that you get from the national school board association of America that then warrants federal involvement, let's play cut 81, and again, this is the greatest example of the more you try to cover something up, the more you try to censor it, the bigger it gets. Democrats very well could have let the school board issue continue to grow and kind of keep it at bay and that kind of downplay it. But they can't help themselves because within a liberal is an authoritarian Mussolini style tyrant waiting and screaming to get out. They can't help themselves. And they get worried. Why are the people getting so animated? Why won't they just stay in their corner and say, we want Liz Cheney back please? Please make Mitt Romney the head of our party. Instead, Merrick Garland made a fatal error. The deep state ruling class and the craven cartel of people running our country, they made a huge strategic mistake. They are now treating moms and dads like ISIS. Now, moms and dads across the country, they're not just tolerating but guess what? You now just validated what they're doing to such a great extent. They want to do it more..

"Today, Merrick Garland is doing a hearing in front of the House judiciary committee. Merrick Garland is being asked certain questions that he doesn't even know the specifics of what he does his attorney general is exactly what bob Mueller did when he was the appointment, where they have these elderly kind of elderly old men that have had long resumes and careers, Merrick Garland being a federal judge, bob Mueller, think bubble around the FBI, and he's something like that. And then they use them as puppets and they manipulate them to wage domestic war on us. Merrick Garland, you have to understand what you're dealing with here. Is the current hired gun of the craven ruling class. Merrick Garland is the placeholder of all of the entrenched interests. Merrick Garland oversees the department that spied on Donald Trump illegally oversees the department that had Peter struck and Lisa page. James Comey, Merrick Garland is the placeholder unelected by the way no one showed up in huge numbers to go elect Merrick Garland to be able to write letters to say to the national school board to acknowledge the letter from the national school board association, say, you know what? We need to go use the FBI the Department of Justice to go after moms and dads that are showing up in big numbers to school board meetings. Now, Republicans are doing their job here by overseeing Merrick Garland. They're conducting oversight. And a lot of this is just words. But Merrick Garland is not used to being challenged like this. I listen to some of the hearing this morning and I could tell you this is a man who just like bob Mueller is only a placeholder and is being used and manipulated by other treacherous and other malevolent interests. To try to weaponize the federal government in the United States.

"And then you see the national school board association calling on the federal government. Merrick garland agreeing and rand paul. And ron paul been warning against this abuse for quite some time that it will just be a matter of time before this security apparatus will be used against political dissidents and we saw a preview of that with donald trump. We saw a little bit of a of a coming attraction trailer. They will not be able to help themselves. But to use the power of the federal government to try to crush you play. Cut seventy one made phone calls. And all their senator rand paul.

Rand paul was ridiculed mocked. never taken seriously but why am i playing all of this. Because the government only has the ability to spy on parents because republicans gave them at ability. Rampal tried to stop this rand. Paul and a couple others. Mike lee and bizarrely enough bernie sanders. I think it was a huge critic of the patriot.

And by the way we're really worried about government overreach us overlook government over reach one. You want the government. Run your healthcare you. Schools and tucker. Carlson said last night. He said any rational thinking person that used to be for the patriot act and now looks at. What's become trico. Call for the total and complete repeal of it. But that's not going to happen anytime soon. Because most almost all democrats except a couple but almost all republicans are equally tied to the intelligence agencies. Look really carefully and closely your elected official. Are they calling for the fbi the pfizer courts and for the patriot. Act to be repealed. Because they see what's happening right now may see that if you expose a certain political viewpoint and they're coming.

"Race and law at morehouse college and currently working on a book about the voting rights act. Well paula reid. First of all talk to me about about how merrick garland has has talked about what he sees. Doj's role is in protecting voting rights in two thousand twenty one. This has been one of the areas in which he is sort of willing to wait into the larger political debate. He's been clear that where they see violations of people's constitutional rights here they will not hesitate to act. He's also taking a pretty dim view of the so-called audits underway in arizona. And we have to remember on this particular issue. It's not just the attorney general It's also the number three at the justice department vanita gupta who will likely have a big role in this and if you look at her record she has been nothing if not aggressive in defending civil rights during her time in the obama justice department and her work outside government during the trump administration so it does appear that on this particular issue is willing somewhat to wade into the political conversation and not only has he teed this up in a way that he could make this one of his signature issues but he also has a deputy who is likely expected to be very aggressive on this. Do you think that That garland the doj have adequate tools at their disposal. Even after the shelby beholder ruling will certainly not to the extent that they did prior and under the trump administration. I mean that part. The civil rights department of the justice department was really got it then largely dormant so no their ability to really police. This is not what it was before but it does appear that they have no choice to address the issue right looking at. What's going on across the country. This is clearly a priority for a lot of republicans doesn't look like this is going to get resolved in congress so he has to do something and it does appear that of all of the issues. This is one where he is willing to leave. Lean in a little bit more. Okay well frank you know regarding domestic terrorism you said that The government has the habit of throwing more people at a problem. It sounds like you know even though the civil rights division had been gutted. Throwing more people at the problem is part of of garland's approach on voting rights who in doubling the civil rights division staff. What do you think about that. I think so i. I applaud that that effort be if it results in more action. Because you know bodies need to translate to action and time's a wasting as they say with regard to these so-called fraud it's that are occurring because look he mcgowan's between a rock and hard place here. I get the fact that if he were to sweep in and say have the us. Marshals raid this Cabin in montana where allegedly the maricopa of votes are have been sequestered and it would be a very dramatic scene immediately. There would be those on the right who say look at this. He's stopping valid audit clearly. He's become highly political. And we'll never get to the truth. And i think i think he almost is taking a strategy strategy of look we sent a wetter. We told them be really careful. You're you're on thin ice when it comes to securing your ballots. We're taking a look at it but the almost now might be waiting for how this comes out to then challenge it so that he can say well. I let it happen. You got your your fraud it. But here's the dilemma with it and here's the tied to domestic terrorism. You get what you pay for in these so-called products and so it's been paid for by people who want fraud to be found whether it exists or not and there's no evidence that it does exist so when they come out and announce holy cow You know it looks like trump Actually won arizona all based on nonsense Cyber ninja findings. Now you've you're left with a public perception among those on the right who will be inspired to take action even violent action based on those findings so garlan sitting there. Do i move now and get accused of being political and stopping and audit. Or do i wait for very dangerous false findings to be announced that could inspire violence. This is why garland seems to have the toughest cabinet position in the biden administration. Well paula reid. We keep bumping up against this question about how to navigate politicisation of the actions of the justice department but it must be stated clearly that the broader picture of voting rights rules being changed in various states in this country have all happened through perfectly legal processes. Right i mean legislatures have Have have passed laws that were signed by governors. And so you know the fraud. It's aside if if garland and the doj get involved in any capacity regarding those state level. Laws how can it not be perceived as anything but political exactly. I mean it would depend on the specific instance something that is validly passed by a state legislature. He's not necessarily going to get involved in that. That is something that could potentially though. Be the center of a lawsuit that slowly makes its way to the supreme court You'd have to look at it case by case he certainly has a role to play. The civil rights. Division has a role to play this issue. Right it's just getting more and more broad. This is clearly a priority. It's not just happening in one state or tuesdays. It's happening across the country in different formats and he absolutely has a role to play through his civil rights division and it does appear that he is willing to engage on this just as he also is willing to engage on domestic terrorism and on police reform which are easy examples of how he is in fact different than his predecessors. Okay so we've got about four minutes left here and the last piece of this puzzle that i wanna get to one paula. That i know you have a ton of reporting on but it's a way to look at how garland's next steps might shed light on how he's running the justice department and that is congressman matt gates as is under investigation. How is this a test. Coming up for attorney. General garland so anytime. The justice department even considers charging sitting congressman or woman. That is an enormous undertaking. You have to make sure that the investigation that the charges are devoid of any sort of a political political ambitions. Any sort of political motivation. Here we know a lot about the investigation into congressman gates. Not only from our reporting but also the fact that his longtime friend and colleague jill greenberg who is charged with thirty three federal counts. He's entered into a plea deal and from that plea deal. We've learned a lot about the overall investigation we know. The congressman is under investigation. Not only for questions about having sex the minor possible sex trafficking public corruption and potentially obstruction of justice. Now we know from our sources. This investigation is still active. They're still bringing witnesses before the grand jury because you really gotta make sure you're crossing your ts and dotting. Your is if you're going to bring potential charges against a congressman to main justice. This is not something that's just going to happen in florida. This is something that's going to have to go to main justice where the public integrity unit has been working on this case. But if they if they charge congressman gates. I mean this could really be a political football for the attorney general. Because he's sending republican congressman..

"But in practice. That's going to be a really difficult thing to do. Yeah so i actually want to hear from both of you little bit more about that when we come back from a quick break. We are scrutinizing the first three months of attorney. General merrick garland tenure at the department of justice. Much more when we come back. This is on point. This is on point. Meghna choco bardy. And today we're taking a close look. At attorney general. Eric garland's first three months as the head of the department of justice and what his actions as attorney. General tell us about his view of justice overall in america and whether or not he is making progress on his promise to de-politicize the doj and to build trust in the department once again. I'm joined today by paula reid. She senior legal. Affairs correspondent for cnn. She's with us from washington. Frank figliuzzi is also with us as well former. Fbi assistant director. Juries nbc news national security contributor and host of the podcast the bureau with frank figliuzzi and he joins us from tucson arizona. And frank i just wanted to quickly pick up on what. Paula mentioned right there. Before the end of the previous segment about attorney general garland very assiduously staying away from saying that the doj would investigate ideology. Right i mean because when he announced the national strategy to push back on domestic terrorism he he basically said explicitly quote we do not prosecute people for their beliefs that across the world extremist or terrorist labels have at times been fixed to those perceived as political threats to the ruling order but there's no place for partisanship in the enforcement of the law. The justice department will not tolerate any such abuse of authority. But what does it tell you That he is saying that he's going to stay very very far away. From using the power of the justice department to a to do anything up route the ideology which has which led to the attacked on congress on january six. Well first let me state clearly. He's he's absolutely right on the money you. We must preserve civil liberties and privacy and free speech if we're going to preserve our country and democracy as we know that but i think we're kind of falls down is the notion that somehow securing our nation and preserving civil liberties are are mutually exclusive. They can't they can't be done together and the absolutely can be done together. And his repeated statements on this and even the thirty some odd page national strategy for countering domestic terrorism goes out of its way almost contorts itself in its language to say we're not looking at ideas and rhetoric were only gonna gonna look at violence and then this new phrase that's been introduced by the way called imminent violence so now you know if anybody were to say frank have you seen any different change in stance and how this might be invested. The change i see is now. We're saying we're putting an adjective in front of violence and calling it imminent violence so in the old days you know prior strategy. He almost wait for the violence to happen. And then come in and clean up afterwards and now we're seeing imminent violence so that is encouraging but again we're nowhere near a government. What even facebook can do on a daily basis. They have sophisticated algorithms that. Tell them even anonymously. This user is talking about hurting somebody repeatedly and at the point where that becomes a concern. They can then send that tip over to the fbi. They do it every single day and it can be done anonymously and then the fbi can come back and say please tell us the identity of that user until i see an approach like that being offered I'm not convinced that the this the rules have changed enough to get us to a place where we can prevent the next act of domestic terrorism. Well i have to say. I really appreciate you pointing out the addition of that one adjective about imminent violence. Because i guarantee you that is going to be a civil. Libertarians are going to be focusing on that with with with a laser like intensity as time goes on but listen of franken paula. We also have to before we get too much further towards the end of the show have to talk about voting as well as another major area of the doj's focus of garland focused in particular because first of all. Let's just listen to what he said earlier this month. When garland unveiled his plan plan to protect voting rights. There are many things that are open to debate in america but the right of all eligible citizens to vote is not one of them. The right to vote is the cornerstone of our democracy. The right from which all the rights ultimately flow now key part of the garland plan is to double the doj civil rights division staff and that division forces voting rights protections but adrian jones is a professor of politics race and law at morehouse college in atlanta and she says that the division no longer has one of its strongest mechanisms for protecting the right to vote that is pre clearance if your state had used a test or device to restrict the vote or to restrict registration and less than half of the black voting age population in your jurisdiction or state had voted in particular. You presidential elections jurists state or jurisdiction. We'd need to submit any new voting law for review from the federal government now pre-clearance protections were eliminated in that twenty thirteen supreme court decision of shelby v holder but professor jones says the justice department still has important oversight powers as part of the voting rights. Act i do. Want merrick garland to use those additional people to oversee elections with a election observers. Which provided for both in hr four and in the voting rights act at also like him to Enforce section eleven of the voting rights. Act which prohibits voting fraud right voting twice and making sure that people are not falsely registering to vote and professor jones says she wants garland to be aggressive in addressing nationwide efforts to change state level voting laws. People are in danger as a result of these elections Georgia elected officials. Georgia candidates georgia voting activists were subject to threats and violence in two thousand eighteen and twenty twenty nationwide. We've had people threatened in twenty twenty their concerns about what happened in the miracle. A county recount Not only in terms of threatening people and making them uncomfortable but the fact that you now review their information and been able to have an opportunity to identify who they are Bees are the kinds of things that went on during jim crow adrian jones..

"As we have been an enormous task ahead to move forward as a country to punish the perpetrators to do everything possible to prevent similar attacks and to do so in a manner that affirms some values on which our justice system is founded upon which our democracy depends resolve and dedication with which the justice department has approached the investigation of the january. Six attack reflects the serious illness with which we take this assault on a mainstay of our democratic system. The peaceful transfer of power. Well joining us. Now is frank figliuzzi. He's a former. Fbi assistant director. He's currently nbc news national security contributor and also host of the podcast. The bureau with frank figliuzzi frank. Welcome back to the show. Thanks for having all right. So you heard. Attorney general garland directly tie the new national strategy to combat domestic terrorism to the january six attack. What's your first take on. What garland is proposing read through it several times The document runs about thirty pages and my initial reaction is that it's largely devoid of the kind of details that i think america needs to hear and see because without those details. It's far less of a blueprint and just kind of more of a of a sketch of where this strategy might be going. I'll give you some examples and they tie into the discussion. You just had with paul about this whole dilemma of being conservator attorney general. And whether not you know being a conservator might actually required to be require you to be more assertive activists in order to bring To the ship Rate the ship so for example in the strategy we see language aimed at using quote non governmental entities for things like threat assessments and Remaining aware of what's going on out there well bet we don't know what that means. Is this an attempt to essentially outsource threat. Analysis is that does that mean that. The rules within the doj fbi have not been changed. And therefore we're going to let the private sector maybe even big tech Which has a very robust analysis component to it. Are we going to let them do it. Does that circumvent all the rules. And regulations of why the fbi can't spy on american citizens we simply don't know And then when it comes to the big question in the strategy of hey should we have a a law against domestic terrorism There's an entire section that In very contorted languages says we're kind of fixing to get ready to think about. We might need a new law. So i think i think the devil's in the details and the details are missing here right. Well i mean regarding whether or not we need a new law to combat domestic or to define domestic terrorism. There is a great deal of debate over that we you were on the show When we talked about it there's a lot of people. There are many people who think that extent law may actually be enough but but garland also talked about hiring more agents expanding to put very broadly the reach of the doj. Can you talk a little bit about that frank. Sure we're you know when we have a crisis in our in our government like this we see a threat. Now it's internal or we've seen external at nine eleven. We tend to throw bodies at it. And even things like deadbeat dad laws carjacking. We went through a period of a carjacking in major cities. Becoming a problem. And what did we do. We we pointed to the fbi and other agencies we said more bodies more analysts more money And and and let's try to tackle this and that's something that that we do. But i'm here to tell you based on my experience. Twenty five years as an fbi agent and talking with on board fbi agents. That's all well and good and they'll take it but until the rules of the road change until they're allowed to do more and more tools are put in their toolkit to combat domestic terrorism namely to kind of take off the rains in terms of assessing through perhaps sophisticated algorithms millions of of social media messages that speak toward violence until that's more permitted. I'm concerned that january six could repeat itself and so while we're putting all the steps in place for very whole of society approach articulated in this national strategy. Nothing's changed with regards to the fbi's governing policies. Well as i read it. It's a four pronged plan that includes what one hundred million dollars in the twenty twenty two proposed budget for adding that personnel. We talked about bolstering ranks. Prosecutors analysts and investigators paula reid. We've just got about thirty seconds before the next break. What do you think of francs concerns about what's missing from garland's whole of country proposal here. Oh spot on. There's a lot of money being thrown a lot of words being thrown around but there are not a lot of details in this has been a perpetual challenge for the justice department. How do you confront domestic terrorism when you also have to be careful not to infringe on anyone's first amendment right which is why you heard. Garland there say they are going to be focused on violence not ideology.

Twenty one confirmation hearing garland swore to push partisanship out of the department of justice. I'm not the president's lawyer I am on the united states lawyer. And i will do everything in my power Which i believe is considerable To fend off any effort by anyone To make prosecutions or investigations partisan or political. In any way my job is to protect the department of justice. Protect the doj. Well three months into his tenure. It's time to scrutinize if is achieving. That goal especially in a department described by some legal analysts as strewn with political. Ticking time bombs everywhere. Well joining me to help with this analysis. Is paula reid. She's senior legal. Affairs correspondent for cnn and she joins us from washington. Polit great to have you back on the show. I am so thrilled to be back with you today. So first of all protecting the department of justice. How monumental of task is that. Broadly speaking in two thousand and twenty one. Gosh it's hard to think of a bigger task right now. He's entering the halls of the justice department. At a time of great division morale is very low and while for the most part Paseo seven to ten years of carbon. The justice department walks people really wasn't on their radar but over the past five years Mostly during the trump administration the justice department the fbi. It's really come into a lot of people's consciousness and they are paying more attention to it They have questions about whether they can trust it. Whether it has been politicized. And whether merrick garland can actually roll back some of the concerns of the politicisation that we saw under the trump administration so the in fact i see to co centric circles of a lack of trust right. There's the the trust that might have broken down within the department itself. There's the trust across washington and various branches institutions in washington. And then of course the trusted the american people in the doj so monumental is a good way to put it. We played those clips a little earlier. Just a second ago to just remind folks. How merrick garland attorney. General garland talks about his view. Of what justice is in america Following that that languishing supreme court nomination. He went back to the circuit and was assiduously a political right. And you heard that again in his confirmation process has he met with two questions first of all has he managed to maintain that apolitical stance in the first three months of his time as attorney general. It appears so i mean. He's definitely pursuing a strong robust civil rights agenda. But if you look at what's happening in the country right now. These attacks on voting rights. He really doesn't have much of a choice but to speak up on that also questions of police reform. He has certainly laid out. Some priorities will civil rights and domestic terrorism but again domestic terrorism like civil rights. He doesn't have much of a choice if you look at. What's going on in the country. January six you see charleston charlottesville. It's been building for years. He has to as the nation's top law enforcement official really take a stance there but by and large if you look overall at the past several months. It appears that he has been pretty impartial. That's what president biden wanted but that's not what progressive democrats wanted and there have been some criticisms of him for being so impartial and for not being more aggressive particularly with how he's handled some of these holdover issues from the previous administrations. We'll talk about those issues in a second and a little later in the show we'll go. We'll dive deeper into garlands plans for the doj's Expansion of Anti domestic terrorism efforts. And what he said about voting in this country but one more thing about his background. Paul if we may. I mean what do you think. We need to understand about who. He is his previous work. His time on the dc circuit To really understand what he brings to the attorney general's office his resume is perfect is central casting for supreme court justice. Because there's a big difference. Right he was a federal judge for over twenty years. When you're judge or you're sort of is located during your chambers you're not really sort of In the fray every day even though you're designing big cases i'm but when you're attorney general of the united states you were constantly waiting into the guest controversies. I remember reading a profile. Eric holder at the time and they just said look this job as a magnet. If there is a problem it's going to stick to you eventually. And that's a big change for him. And i think what we've seen particularly over the past week or so with the subpoena story coming out which we'll talk about. I'm sure i really think we've seen him. Maybe starting to adjust to the realities that he is no longer a judge. So that's the biggest challenge. I see in terms of his resume he would have been ideal for supreme court justices writing opinions. But when you're attorney general you're going before congress. Dealing with the biggest controversies. You're having to answer questions or bisky reporters all the time. It's a big change and there's an outstanding question about whether he is the right man for this job at this moment. Well in fact as you said a second ago. This is one of the areas of criticism from a president biden's left from the left wing of the democratic party. For example we spoke with jeff houser whose founding of the revolving door project which scrutinises executive branch appointees and. He said he believes mary. Carlin despite that picture perfect cv. You talked about paula. He says garland is unprepared to lead. The doj merrick. Garland spent a generation cloistered within the judiciary developing Myopic view of the world. That did not take into account political reality. I don't think merrick garland followed the ins and outs of trump's america. I don't think he knows. Just how bad it got. And hauser also says in. His view garland is simply continuing the positions of his predecessor. Former attorney general bar. He believes that this continuity in the department of justice is a sign of independence assign that regardless of elections. The department of justice remains committed to the rule of law and just not change a haphazardly or excessively just because of an election. Which would be a reasonable thing to do if you were taking over for gerald ford paula. Reid would respond to that. What do you think. I disagree with that analysis. I think that's really cherry. Picking what has happened over the past several months. It's more complex than that. Yes the garland. Justice department has continued to defend the trump administration stance in some cases related to the president. Which we'll talk about..

"In on hitler's rise to power hitler made his genocide were palpable for the broader public. By giving them all these financial goodies and so the. Us chamber of commerce is very much a part of that ideological legacy and it's destroying the planet and mansion is beholden to them. He's a puppet of big money. The dark forces the death eaters that have given us both trump and a apparently impotent democratic leadership. And of course as i as i mentioned earlier mansion has taken coke. Money spent the koz age just to be clear. Sorry he's coked up to the heavens and he the cokes were targeting him. I've no doubt they're very happy about all of this. And he is giving the cokes. What they want which was to stop this legislation. That would protect our right to vote and would give us some defense against these highly targeted vocal state legal warfare. That trumpism is carrying out against us. They're organizing on the all important local level since it started gas nation. We've been telling everyone please organiz on the all important local level no who represents you locally you are represented by a trumper or putinite. Take those same thing. Really a trump putinite go and take their job. Go and take the job. If your local elected officials get your friends to run for local office our democracy depends on what happens in our own communities so please please please run for local office to act as a barrier against the steamrolling of authoritarianism. There's also breaking news since we started reporting the wonderful folks at propublica have uncovered a treasure trove of secret. Irs files that show how oligarchs in the us had been living tax free basically leaning on the rest of us to pay our taxes so they can become staggeringly wealthy and speed up their operation to build spacecraft so they can get the hell out of here after destroying the planet. Apparently do you mind if i read from this now. We have jesse. I singer propublica. I'm gonna read from. His threat is of one. Quick thing. sure about this is just as just a public service announcement that i am voluntarily giving. Because it's i think it's of interest to people william barbara reading. William barber has announced that the poor people's campaign is going to be holding a moral march on mansion in west virginia. Yes led by west virginians of all colors creeds etc from the hood to the hollers on monday june fourteenth. He then says that west virginians and kentuckians will lead a moral march and nonviolent direct action on mansion in mcconnell on wednesday june twenty third in washington dc. So if you would like to go maker voice heard. I would urge you to join them. It's worth noting that when west virginians are actually polled about the for the people act therefore like overwhelmingly across the board like this is not a controversial thing. They also just either. Don't filibuster is most americans don't know what the filibuster is or they're fine with it being abolished like joe. Manchin is not doing this to represent the people of west virginia. He's not doing this as andrea already noted to quote be. Bipartisan is doing this because he's corrupt because he's paid off and because he doesn't care if our democracy dies and so now yeah go go on with the oligarchs so back to the joe mansion is hoping to become one hence the corruption jesse icing Rights on twitter new today propublica presents.
