Merrick Garland misses the target – https://thehill.com/opinion/judiciary/3745825-merrick-garland-misses-the-target/
"Almost 1,000 people have been charged in connection with the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol insurrection; criminal and civil investigations are underway in Georgia and New York on allegations of election tampering and tax fraud; sitting U.S. senators, senior Trump White House aides and Trump Organization officials are being compelled to testify by the Department of Justice, state prosecutors and the Supreme Court; and an ongoing FBI investigation has concluded that top secret and compartmentalized intelligence papers were removed from the White House to Mar-a-Lago.
But on Nov. 18, by appointing a special counsel to take over the Jan. 6 and Mar-a-Lago investigations, Attorney General Merrick Garland effectively passed on his responsibility to decide whether the person at the center of all of these investigations, former President Trump, should be prosecuted. Garland’s nomination of a special counsel was said to be necessary because the “Department of Justice has long recognized that in certain extraordinary cases, it is in the public interest to appoint a special prosecutor to independently manage an investigation and prosecution.”"
