Y'all might be right.

The ONLY bright spot I see is the formation of the Federal Grand Jury about which we have heard next to nothing.

Garland's DOJ has been - it seems from the outside - dragging its feet in obvious cases of criminality by #ErraticTrump and his CULT members.

The Fulton County DA has subpoenaed folks and notified others they are possible "targets" for interfering in a FEDERAL election, but the DOJ ain't said a peep.

Fake electors file paperwork in a Presidential eletion with the NATIONAL ARCHIVES (clearly a Federal entity), but the DOJ is asleep at the wheel.

Time will tell, but the tiny bit of optimism the creation of the Grand Jury instilled in me is fading quickly.

If Garland finally comes in like the cavalry, then I will pleased.... and surprised.

Many try to spin his foot-dragging as being meticulous and methodical ensuring all "I"s are dotted and "T"s are crossed, and periods and exclamation points are in the right place. Garland is doing what Jake Gaither use to say "Kill a mosquito with an axe!". Have evidence so overwhelming that it would stand up to any appeal in the courts.

This is the main reason I wasn't a proponent of Kamala Harris being chosen as the VP. She would have been more effective and better served the country had she been appointed Attorney General.

That's just it. Time is short. After his investigation and evidence gathering, issuing an indictment (if any) and a lengthy trial will take a long time. His time may run out if the GOP takes control again, and this all will be for naught. This has already taken more time than it should have, IMO. :no:

The earliest the Republicans can gain control of the executive branch is January 2025.

WM, can you remember the longest time it took a federal case to come to trial (hint: The McMartin Preschool Abuse Trial)? After motions, and appeals of motion decisions to come to the actual trial beginning? Then the length of the trial to verdict?
