Attorney General Merrick Garland has faced growing criticism from those forlorn souls who have been anxiously awaiting the arrest, trial and imprisonment of former President Donald J. Trump and the nation’s top law enforcement official continues to disappoint the lynch mob.

On Friday, during a Justice Department press conference on a completely unrelated matter, a reporter went off topic to question the attorney general about whether he felt pressure from Democrats, including members of Nancy Pelosi’s sham committee to investigate the so-called “insurrection” who are demanding that Garland act against Trump, his associates and his family as time ticks down toward the midterm elections.

As Garland was wrapping up the news conference billed where he announced a “Superseding Indictment Charging 12 in Gun-Running Conspiracy to Supply Firearms to Gang Members in Chicago,” according to a DOJ press release, a reporter hijacked the session by interjecting politics.

“I’m sorry to ask an off-topic question, but there’s been so much criticism of the Justice Department around the January 6 investigation, and a lot of people trying to pressure the department to either work faster or even to investigate specific individuals,” she asked. “How would you respond to that pressure, and to those critics?”

The attorney general replied, “Look, the only pressure I feel, and the only pressure that our line prosecutors feel, is to do the right thing. That means we follow the facts and the law wherever they may lead, thanks, everyone, “as he walked away from the podium, leaving the lynch mob hanging.

With the committee busily conducting its witch hunt albeit with little to hang their hats on to this point, the media and a number of Democrats attempted to bully Garland into taking what would be a highly controversial if not explosive course of action against both a former president as well as the opposition party’s leading candidate for the 2024 election and a likely rematch with the hugely unpopular Joe Biden.

This week, two members of the travesty that Trump has dubbed the “unselect” committee spoke out publicly in an effort to give Garland a nudge.

Rep. Elaine Luria of Virginia tweeted out a video of her committee grandstanding demanding that ““Attorney General Garland, do your job so we can do ours,”

Luria’s fellow committee member, Rep. Adam Schiff who was one of the managers of the first failed impeachment of Trump also called for action from AG Garland.

“Congress is doing its part. The DOJ must do the same,” the California Democrat tweeted.

Despite Garland’s reticence, hope springs eternal with the same group who believed that the walls were closing in throughout the Mueller probe with CNN reporting that a Washington D.C. grand jury has issued subpoenas indicating that the “investigation is moving onto a new level” which could just be more false hope peddled by a network that has racked up an impressive record of Trump bombshells that turned out to be duds.

Democrats, their RINO collaborators, mouthy celebs and leftist media figures should be highly skeptical of CNN’s scoop after hopes for a new Watergate over a “7 hour gap” in White House phone logs on January 6, 2021 turned out be a total hoax.

Democrat pressure on Garland will likely intensify with the likelihood of their committee being disbanded if as many are predicting, voters strip them of control of Congress in November.
