[WATCH] Merrick Garland’s Former Law Professor Thinks He’ll Indict Trump

One of America’s top constitutional experts has predicted that his former student, Attorney General Merrick Garland, will criminally charge Donald Trump for his attempted coup.

Laurence Tribe, a professor emeritus at Harvard Law School, has taught the Constitution to some of the most powerful people in America during his 52 years at the prestigious Ivy League university. Some of Tribe’s other students who have gone on to serve admirably in the government include Reps. Jaime Raskin (D-MD) and Adam Schiff (D-CA), both of whom sit on the January 6th House Select Committee, as well as Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts. Tribe, a frequent guest on both CNN and MSNBC, has often spoken of Trump’s various legal breaches and believes Garland will be the one to finally hold Trump accountable.

Trump’s crimes are “obvious,” Tribe told CNN’s Erin Burnett last month. “The most obvious was that he was ordering his vice-president to do what everyone in the room knew would be illegal, namely, exercise power to pick the next president. It would be very convenient if Al Gore could have picked himself as the next president in 2000, very convenient if Richard Nixon could have done it in 1960.” Tribe reiterated this take on Friday to Wolf Blitzer.

“Ordering your vice-president to violate the law in order to stay in power is a very serious federal crime, but there are other crimes as well,” Tribe said. “One that occurred to several people today is attempted murder. You know, under the criminal code of the United States, the attempted murder of the vice-president is punishable by life imprisonment.”

Let’s hope Tribe is right about Garland.
