[WATCH] Charges Against Trump Are a Matter of ‘How Quickly’ Garland Can Move, Says Laurence Tribe

Donald Trump’s direct involvement with the January 6th Capitol riot has been effectively proven by the January 6th House Select Committee’s first round of eight televised hearings. As the Committee takes a brief hiatus from presenting evidence to collect more of it, Trump is still out on his Ego Tour and performing at rallies–albeit with a whole bunch of yelling projection–leaving many to wonder if he’ll ever face any consequences for election fraud, inciting a riot, and dereliction of duty, among his other many transgressions against the law?

Attorney General Merrick Garland has been widely criticized from both sides of the political aisle regarding the lack of action from his office regarding Trump and his extended circle of cronies. But the wheels of justice move at a glacial pace, as we witnessed with Steve Bannon‘s conviction this week. As Garland has said, his office doesn’t perform in the public eye. When they’re ready to mobilize, we’ll hear about it.

While some historians and legal experts continue to debate over whether it’s possible to bring charges against Trump, there are still others who think he’s long past due for his actions to catch up to him. Mark Pomerantz, the former special prosecutor in the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office, said if Trump was “Joe Blow from Kokomo,” he would’ve been prosecuted ages ago. “I believe that Donald Trump, in fact, was guilty,” Pomerantz says in a new interview, “and, second, that there was sufficient evidence as a matter of law to have sustained a guilty verdict if we went forward.”

Harvard Law Professor Laurence Tribe believes Garland will bring charges against Trump, and he should get a move on it. “Nothing could be more dangerous to the country” than to not hold Donald Trump accountable for his role in the January 6th attack on the Capitol, Tribe told Lawrence O’Donnell on Friday night’s “The Last Word.” Let’s hope Merrick Garland was watching this as closely as he watched the January 6th hearings.
