“Garland is the last, best chance to explore Trump’s role on January 6”

David Rohde in New Yorkers:

If Garland hopes to revive Levi’s ideal, then his roadmap is clear. The federal criminal investigation is a relatively blunt tool, but it is the best, last way to uncover the truth about one of the most violent attempts to topple the results of presidential elections in history. USA. During his confirmation hearing, Garland said, of the siege, “This is the most terrible attack on democratic processes that I have ever seen, and an attack that I never expected to see in my life,” and vowed to pursue clues “wherever they take us.” However, the risks to the new Attorney General are very significant. Justice Department prosecutors may struggle to find enough evidence to prove a conspiracy beyond reasonable suspicion. Stone, other Trump associates, and Trump himself have been proficient in legal gray fields for decades. Garland may be compelled to report that the investigation has ended with no charges against them. In that case, by law, he would likely be prohibited from disclosing any evidence gathered, because most criminal investigations are conducted in secret, through a subpoena of the court. Grand jury. Garland could also publish charges, go to trial and cannot be convicted, a weakness that would reinforce claims from Trump that he was a victim – and a survivor not beaten to death – of a Another wicked conspiracy against him.

However, truth, hope, is still the weapon. That’s why Garland should use his powers as Attorney General to completely and objectively rebuild, recreating the events of January 6 and the months before – place, as prosecutors must do, where the events lead to him, and then determine who deserves to be charged with a criminal offense. “You can’t make that decision without an investigation,” Gillers told me. “You follow facts, you find out the facts and then you make a decision.” Of course, our growing inability to agree on fundamental events is the great challenge and tragedy of our time.
