and able to use all the powers of his office to hinder the Mueller investigation. Mueller had come out of retirement and had to put together an investigation from the ground up, in the face of united Republican opposition.

This time around, all ex-President Trump has is his money, and his ability to hire lawyers and drag things out in the courts. But Attorney General Merrick Garland has been methodically putting cases together against hundreds of Jan 6 offenders, and just got important convictions that will help them in a case against higher-ups.

Meanwhile, in the MAL case, the DOJ JUST NOW -- through the action of the Court of Appeals -- is getting access to all the documents they need to review to prosecute the MAL case. There are still a couple hurdles -- Trump might appeal this decision to SCOTUS. But based on other recent decisions involving Trump, he's likely to lose that.

And so now Garland has passed along almost two years worth of investigations to Jack Smith -- who left a prestigious, important job in Europe to do so.

No, we haven't seen this movie before.
