“How many crimes does Trump need to commit to be prosecuted — or at least investigated — by the DOJ? He pressured lawmakers to overturn an election and obstructed justice to hide his crimes,” Texas Democratic Rep. Joaquin Castro tweeted alongside a clip of his CNN interview.
“Trump is a threat to our democracy, and we need to treat him like one,” he added.

Republicans have long called for Garland’s departure, especially since his involvement in a letter that referred to angry parents at school board meetings as extremists.
“It’s time for a group of respected, experienced, influential legal eagles to sign a letter to President Biden demanding the firing of Merrick Garland,” Cheri Jacobus, a former Republican political strategist, posted on Twitter.
“It has to happen, and this can give Biden some political cover. The status quo cannot stand,” she added.
