    Really? ‘Unfounded attacks’

    Regarding Merrick Garland's blame-shifting opinion piece, "Unfounded attacks on the Justice Department must end," The Day, June16, reprinted from the Washington Post, Americans justifiably smell a rat at the Justice Department.

    There's a laundry list of Justice Department failures or faux pas. Who can get away with destroying 30,000 emails under subpoena? The head of the FBI decides, not a judge. FBI receives glaringly phony “Steele dossier." Funny, they didn’t launch a reverse investigation as to why and how it originated — the ”Russia hoax.“ Is the FBI that dumb or are they complicit?

    The infamous laptop — the FBI received it and was well aware it was real. The MSM buries the story. Fifty “intelligence” people signed a letter stating it was Russian disinformation, yet later it’s successfully used as criminal evidence in a federal trial. The FBI knew all along what they had.

    And one more: quoting Robert Hur, it would be difficult to convict “a well meaning elderly man with a poor memory.” But don’t ask for an audio version of the interview; Merrick won’t give it to you. So that is only partially why the Justice Department is not trusted; it has poisoned the political well for years to come.
