AG Merrick Garland on future Jan. 6 indictments: 'We pursue justice without fear or favor'July 27, 2022
Attorney General Merrick Garland is picking up the pace of his media appearances and offering more reassurances that nobody is above the law. Garland sat down with Lester Holt and NBC and sounded resolute that those “criminally” responsible for Jan. 6 will be held accountable.
- The DOJ may not be moving fast enough, but they aren’t ‘doing nothing,’ either
- The Claremont Institute is a fascist think tank, and it’s standing behind the Trump-Eastman coup
Lester Holt: You said in no uncertain terms the other day that no one is above the law.
Merrick Garland: Yeah.
Lester Holt: That said, the indictment of a former president, perhaps candidate for president would arguably tear the country apart. Is that your concern as you make your decision down the road here? Do you have to think about things like that?
Merrick Garland: Look. We pursue justice without fear or favor. We intend to hold everyone, anyone who was criminally responsible for the events surrounding January 6th, for any attempt to interfere with the lawful transfer of power from one administration to the another accountable. That’s what we do. We don’t pay any attention to other issues with respect to that.
