Here’s a basic fact: The Democratic Party’s number-one priority is to pass a voting “reform” bill that would federalize elections under rules favorable to Democratic candidates. It’s more important than any other part of the party agenda. But Democrats on Capitol Hill don’t have the votes to pass the far-reaching voting bill known as S.1. That’s where Attorney General Merrick Garland comes in. Not only is the AG pushing for the Democrats’ bill, he is pledging that the Justice Department will push some of the partisan agenda that Democrats can’t get through Congress. Remember all those people who said the Trump administration had politicized the Justice Department? They said it would stop under a Democratic president. It hasn’t.

    As usual, spot on. At least from my point of view…

    We really dodged a bullet when Merrick Garland was kept off the Supreme Court.

    Don’t the Dems always accuse the other side of what they are doing and/or plan to do?
