This afternoon, Attorney General Merrick Garland said he’s appointing a special counsel to oversee a pair of criminal investigations of Donald Trump just three days after his presidential campaign announcement (total coincidence, of course):

Attorney General Merrick Garland will appoint a Special Counsel to investigate former President Donald Trump three months after the FBI raided his Mar-a-Lago home. A Special Counsel will also investigate Trump for January 6 after congressional Democrats lost control of the U.S. House in the 2022 midterm elections. The partisan January 6 subcommittee is expected to be disbanded.

Garland detailed the decision from the Department of Justice Friday afternoon and named former DOJ official Jack Smith for the position. President Donald Trump tells Fox News he will not participate in the probes.

During today’s White House briefing, Biden press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre insisted all this is completely non-political. Turn off your BS detector before watching this so it doesn’t explode:

HAHAHAHAHA! Oh wait, she’s being serious?

And that’s saying something!

Apparently, because according to KJP, Attorney General Merrick Garland did not inform President Biden that he was forming a special counsel to investigate Trump:

Of course just because Biden was “not aware” of the DOJ’s next move doesn’t necessarily mean he wasn’t told.
