...and I can see now I have no clue how to get you to understand that the AG isn't just an 'employee' and whose replacement is subject to more than just the president's own initiative to retain or fire him.

It's not me, it's you.

What about the efficacy of that decision to the resolution of the dual indictments and other administration priorities.?

Everything doesn't get solved by merely putting Garland down. It's such a insultingly dense argument because, it assumes that something would change - an absurdity which isn't supported by anything other then the ill-informed conjecture of critics outside of the investigation.

It's even more absurd, assuming the dozens of the nation's top prosecutors involved at DOJ and with the SC care just as much about convicting Trump as anyone else.

I don't believe removing an inadequate employee is as political as you're trying to make it. Think. Again. Mar 2024 #1
