Senate Democrats are hopeful that Joe Biden’s Attorney General Merrick Garland is going to “prosecute” President Donald Trump for unspecified “crimes” related to 2020 election claims and the 2021 storming of the Capitol.
Democrat senators have declared “there is a good chance” Garland will indict Trump. However, leftist lawmakers also cautioned they don’t have “inside information” on the matter, according to a report by The Hill.
They think Garland should indict Trump for trying “to overturn” the 2020 presidential election results and “inciting” an attack on the Capitol back on 1/6/2021.
Should Biden’s AG launch any formal prosecution against Trump, this would have “major political reverberations” for the 2024 presidential election.
Garland has given off little clues as to whether he might seek to charge Trump with anything. Democrat lawmakers appear to be worried if Garland doesn’t “proceed cautiously,” a potential prosecution may fail to convict Trump and therefore serve as his vindication.
Such a scenario is likened to the “inconclusive report” by then special counsel Robert Mueller.
They said the Access Hollywood tape was the "end of Trump." They said the Ukraine call was the "end of Trump." They said the Raffensperger call was the "end of Trump." They said J6 was the "end of Trump." And now, they say AG Garland will be the "end of trump." They ARE WRONG.

‘Intuition’ and Lots of Murky Accusations
Among those Senate Democrats who want Trump prosecuted are Richard Blumenthal and Tim Kaine. Meanwhile, the DOJ is being very “diligent” about investigating if Trump “broke the law.”
Kaine said he believes Garland hasn’t decided yet if the former president would be charged. Democrat Senator Sherrod Brown argued “anybody” who played a role in the storming of the US Capitol on January 6, 2021, absolutely should be prosecuted.
He further described that as “treason” and using “violent means” to attempt to overturn an election.
While Brown shyly abstained from declaring Trump “guilty” before seeing such evidence, he insisted a lot of evidence showed the 45th president of the United States “was complicit.”
The report reminded that on January 5 of this year, Attorney General Garland declared he was going to prosecute all of those responsible for 1/6, which he described as an “assault on our democracy”.
It is also true that President Trump is being targeted by prosecutors at the state level. The DA of Fulton County, Georgia told AP over the weekend that she would likely ask a grand jury to move forward her investigation of a conversation Trump had with Brad Raffensperger, the Georgia secretary of state.
In her words, a decision over “criminal charges” against Trump will probably be made within six months. Trump is already the target of a criminal investigation by the DAs of Manhattan and the state of New York over allegations of “bank and insurance fraud”.
Any existing or potential prosecution against the 45th president, however, remains highly suspicious. It is likely indicative of Democrats’ attempts to use the justice system to gain political advantages and to retaliate against the most popular GOP figure in the country.
Senate Democrats abuse their offices to pressure corrupt Garland DOJ to abusively prosecute their number one political opponent: Trump. https://t.co/24S3XOE05F
