I personally believe the only reason Attorney General Merrick Garland appointed a Special Counsel to investigate President Biden over misplaced classified documents is to placate whiny victimized Republicans.
Republicans always demand special treatment. Right now, they’re screaming for an investigation into something President Biden did that they ignored when Donald Trump did it worse.
Garland appointed a Republican, a Trump appointee at that, to investigate Biden. Can you imagine the GOP reaction if Garland had appointed a Democrat to investigate Trump? He didn’t. He appointed an independent. And don’t forget, Robert Mueller is also a Republican.
Republicans were howling for a Special Counsel before one was appointed, and asking why the FBI wasn’t raiding Biden’s home. The reason the FBI wasn’t conducting “raids” on Biden’s two homes or the White House is that Biden is cooperating and the National Archives never requested the Department of Justice to become involved. Now that a Special Counsel has been appointed to investigate the mishandling of a few documents, probably less than 20, you get the sense Republicans still aren’t happy.
Now, they’re hashtagging “garagegate” because the second batch of documents were found inside Biden’s garage. But unfortunately for Republicans, “garagegate” doesn’t have the same ring to it as “toiletgate.’
