Merrick Garland: I'm Letting Biden's Hand-Picked Personal Praetorian Guard Collect The Evidence Against Him Because I Don't Want To "Complicate" the Investigation Or Something


Per the Wall Street Journal, Merrick Garland's excuse as to why he sent an armed team of FBI agents to search and confiscate Trump's documents but is letting Biden's lawyers -- most of whom don't even have security clearances -- conduct the searches themselves is because... he doesn't want to "complicate the later stages of the investigation."


Mr. Trump's supporters have accused the Justice Department of a double standard in treatment; Mr. Biden's supporters have pointed to the president's legal team's cooperation and swift moves to inform the Justice Department of the documents' discovery as a key difference...

President Biden's legal team has cooperated with Justice Department investigators, helping it avoid more aggressive actions by law enforcement thus far....

One reason not to involve the FBI at an early stage: That way the Justice Department would preserve the ability to take a tougher line, including executing a future search warrant, if negotiations ever turned hostile, current and former law-enforcement officials said.

Oh, they're not getting a search warrant now so they can get one latter if they have to. Because the law is that You Can Only Get One Search Warrant.

Wait, that's not the law at all. You can get as many search warrants as you need.

So this is a lie.

...

Yet the Biden team's bumpy rollout of its discoveries--it only confirmed the document discoveries after news reports and has offered few new details--complicates its attempt to draw a hard distinction between Mr. Biden's actions and those of Mr. Trump, said John Fishwick, who served as the U.S. attorney for the Western District of Virginia during the Obama administration.

"He is the sitting president, there's no reason for him to hold back anything about this," Mr. Fishwick said. "It makes it harder to say it's apples and oranges, and it undercuts the argument that you were different."

So Merrick Garland doesn't want to "complicate" the investigation by... involving his own law enforcement agents of the FBI.

Complicate it? How? By protecting the chain of custody, as David Strom of Hot Air suggested?

By insuring that none of Biden's more "helpful" cronies doesn't decide to reduce the number of classified documents he's discovered to be in possession of and simply destroy the the evidence? Maybe one of these lawyers comes across a code-word clearance document about Ukraine energy mentioning Burisma and thinks, "No way I'm turning this in," and slips it into his sock, Sandy Burger style.

Nah, we wouldn't want FBI agents to prevent that kind of thing. That would "complicate" the whitewash Merrick is planning.

Let's just trust Biden's hand-picked Praetorian to do the evidence-collection for law enforcement agents who are, theoretically, making the decision whether or not to prosecute him, based partly upon the expansiveness of the evidence discovered.
