2. Media don't have to investigate, prosecute and convict beyond reasonable doubt, prosecutors do.

Media publishes after investigation but the DOJ has couple more rungs to climb,….the whole “proof” thing.

4. You missed one -- Paul Gosar's anti-Democrat conspiracy thoughtfully

offered by Thom Hartmann on his show. During the interview, Gosar rolled out the whole shocking conspiracy theory to Hartmann -- in essence that Biden's choice for USAG, Merrick Garland, had made a deal with the Republicans to protect tRump and company in return for an appointment to the Supreme Court.

I'd link to the OP that brought this RW subversion to DU (without trying to refute), but it's gone already. But, although some claimed to find it "credible," it seems helpful for others to have an idea of what's being spread and by whom.

8. Trump and his supporters said the same thing while TFG was prez.

No action against Hillary.

Ignored (alleged) election theft.

Ignored Hunter Biden.

Did nothing about Obama.

Left Antifa alone.

9. Good to know that low-level MAGA street trash and 5-year old money scandals...

...are getting so much attention while Congressional subpoena power is being turned into a paper tiger, and higher-level insurrection plotters continue to openly plot away against the next elections.

But I'm sure that just too complicated to do any faster, so we'll have to settle for the barn door being shut after all the horses are gone. 'Cause procedure.

It's not like creeping fascism is an emergency or anything.

11. All of it needs to be done, with an appropriate sense of priority

The priorities are screwed up, and the priorities are showing that the rich, powerful, and well-connected get a whole lot more oh-so-careful careful consideration and hand-wringing worry about how meticulously slow and careful one must be before going after such people.

After all, you wouldn't want to look bad because you went after someone important and lost? Heavens no! And you wouldn't want to lose favor, win or lose the case, with the allies of the rich, powerful, and well-connected, would you?
