Why are we getting these leaks all of a sudden? Is it to put pressure on AG Garland or to justify what they expect him to already do?
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.
The New York Times doesn’t just get a bunch of leaks, it has stories handed to it. Why is this story being planted?
1. The Hunter Biden investigation
2. Biden is polling underwater against Trump
Either one on their own or certainly both justify this new intensive focus.
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.
However, per the report, Biden has never articulated his frustrations about the January 6 cases directly to Garland.
He just did. If you consider bashing Garland and pressuring him through the media direct or indirect. But the purpose here is rather clear.
