TRUMP RAID LEAVES ME WITH 8 IMPORTANT QUESTIONS AS A MEMBER OF THE SENATE JUDICIAL COMMITTEE
JONATHAN TURLEY: Merrick Garland declined to name a special counsel in the Hunter Biden case. And he obviously didn’t appoint a special advocate in regards to Jan. 6, either. In my opinion, this is an astonishing and colossal failure on the part of the Attorney General. There’s no reason I can think of not to appoint a special advocate in these two circumstances: The Hunter Biden scandal has now directly contradicted the president in what he’s been telling the public for years. We now have meetings at the White House with business associates of Hunter Biden. Joe Biden’s denials now seem false. And this is an information influence peddling scheme that may have generated millions. How could you, as Attorney General, not appoint a special advocate? Then you jump to January 6. You have a grand jury by the administration of the man who was the opposing candidate and they are investigating the man who might be his opponent in the next election. Just standing there on its own, without getting to anything else, it’s bizarre to suggest that a special advocate isn’t necessary. That’s why we had the special advocate with Nixon. Everyone celebrates Archibald Cox. Where’s Archibald Cox? Where are the people who say, let’s do as we did with Richard Nixon?
