Republicans on up to former President Donald Trump have for three years now been making credible cases alleging the Biden administration at the highest levels has been using the FBI and the Dept. of Justice as political weapons to use against a potential general election opponent.
A new story that dropped Friday night detailing Biden’s growing frustrations with Attorney General Merrick Garland after the release of the Hur report lent more credence to those allegations, with sources stating Biden had privately been “grumbling” to those close to him about the fact that Garland didn’t “move sooner” on the Trump election interference investigation – because maybe by this point he might have already been tried and convicted (and presumably out of the way):
Joe Biden has told aides and outside advisers that Attorney General Merrick Garland did not do enough to rein in a special counsel report stating that the president had diminished mental faculties, according to two people close to the president, as White House frustration with the head of the Justice Department grows.
In recent weeks, President Biden has grumbled to aides and advisers that had Garland moved sooner in his investigation into former President Donald Trump’s election interference, a trial may already be underway or even have concluded, according to two people granted anonymity to discuss private matters. That trial still could take place before the election and much of the delay is owed not to Garland but to deliberate resistance put up by the former president and his team.
And in what in my opinion was clear evidence this was a story planted by a senior-level Biden official who wanted to send a warning message to Garland, it was also predicted that if Biden were to win a second term, he wouldn’t retain Garland as AG:
While Biden himself has not weighed in on Garland’s future, most of the president’s senior advisers do not believe that the attorney general would remain in his post for a possible second term, according to the two people.
In other words, Merrick Garland, do Joe Biden’s bidding and Protect the Precious or you’re outta here.

All of this is especially fascinating when you think about how wildly politicized the DOJ has become under Garland, what with the Trump indictments, the Hunter Biden favoritism, their targeting of parents and pro-lifers, the Mar-a-Lago raid, and them looking the other way as pro-abortion agitators violated U.S. Code while “protesting” outside the homes of conservative Supreme Court Justices…
…and then you read that Joe Biden essentially believes Garland hasn’t politicized and weaponized the DOJ enough.
In fact, Biden has been calling for Trump to be investigated going back to 2019 over the Ukraine call, which considering the nature of the call and its implications for Joe Biden is further proof in my opinion that he’s perfectly content with using federal departments to bully, intimidate, and discredit his opponents, just as we saw in 2020:
Biden said during the 2020 campaign that Trump should be investigated. Few media outlets reported it.
This on top of the NY Times reporting that Biden wanted Garland to investigate Trump just throws more fuel on the fire that these indictments are all mostly political. https://t.co/6vnNlUutXk pic.twitter.com/sBDq2A0jFR

Biden wanted Trump investigated, indicted, tried, and convicted on election interference charges sooner rather than later. Gee, I wonder why?
Seems like a bit of serious story that the president of the United States is admitting to aides he is relying on a conviction of his chief rival by his DOJ to win reelection. It should also be noted that Jack Smith seems to be making speed to trial his primary concern, which as… https://t.co/R9hj45kP69 pic.twitter.com/FbGhrVAUXi

“…which as luck would have it, is exactly what the president is telling aides he wanted.”
I eagerly await the reactions of hysterical “our democracy is at stake!!” leftist influencers and media figures to this news, but I won’t hold my breath.
