There is little doubt whatsoever that current President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump are not the closest of friends. In fact, based solely on what the nation witnessed during the stunted debate schedule between the two, it may be fair to say that these fellows aren’t going to be sharing any occasions with one another anytime soon.
And, with a number of investigations into Trump’s behavior continuing under the Biden administration, it would behoove the nation to know that these probes are occurring under fair and unbiased oversight.
Such is not the case, at least not according to new reports from the White House.
President Joe Biden privately said that former President Donald Trump should be prosecuted over the January 6 insurrection at the US Capitol, The New York Times reported on Saturday.
In addition, the president described Trump as a “threat to democracy,” according to two individuals with knowledge of the conversation who spoke with the newspaper.
The Times said that their report was based on interviews with more than a dozen people, “including officials in the Biden administration and people with knowledge of the president’s thinking.” All requested anonymity to speak freely, the paper said.
And that’s not all…
Biden has reportedly grown frustrated with US Attorney General Merrick Garland, who is investigating the riot, according to people close to the president. The president has described Garland as a “ponderous judge” and said he wants to see him take more “decisive action” regarding the Capitol siege, according to The Times.
The news will undoubtedly annihilate whatever notion of impartiality there was regarding the January 6th select committee as well, leaving many to wonder if the entire probe was nothing more than a lengthy political hit job meant to gather evidence for Democratic use in the 2022 midterms and beyond.
