US Attorney General Merrick Garland Says He is Open to Prosecuting President Trump (VIDEO)

US Attorney General Merrick Garland said he is open to prosecuting Trump for his ‘role in January 6.’

Merrick Garland was asked by NBC’s Lester Holt if indicting a former president would “tear the country apart.”

“Look, we pursue justice without fear or favor,” Merrick Garland told NBC’s Lester Holt in an interview that will air Tuesday night.

Right.

“We intend to hold everyone, anyone who was criminally responsible for the events surrounding January 6, for any attempt to interfere with the lawful transfer of power from one administration to another, accountable,” Garland added. “That’s what we do.”

“So if Donald Trump were to become a candidate for president again, that would not change your schedule or how you move forward or don’t move forward?” Holt asked.

“I’ll say again that we will hold accountable anyone who is criminally responsible for attempting to interfere with the transfer — legitimate, lawful transfer of power from one administration to the next,” Garland said.

Merrick Garland recently made similar remarks to reporters.

“No person is above the law in this country. There is nothing in the principles of prosecution… which prevent us from investigating anyone who is criminally responsible for an attempt to undo a democratic election,” Merrick Garland said last week when asked if Trump can be prosecuted.
