Alberto Gonzales: Should AG Garland believe that Trump committed a crime, he’s obligated to prosecute

Ex-Bush Attorney General Alberto Gonzales stated Tuesday, on CNN’s “The Lead”, that Attorney General Merrick Galrland is obligated to bring Donald Trump to trial “if he believes that a crime was committed”, regardless of any political unrest.

Guest Anchor Kasie hunt said that he was curious about Merrick Garland the current attorney general. He stated, “Obviously, you’ve been in these shoes in the past. As someone responsible for making a decision on behalf of the ex-president, he is in an extremely unique situation. Is it possible that he ought to consider Lindsey Graham’s suggestion there? That the ex-president might encourage supporters of violence, and that this might lead to incredible political turmoil. Are you able to give us an insight into what he may be thinking along these lines ?”

Gonzales stated, “Well, General Garland is not my friend, so let me start by saying that I do not know him. But, I can tell that I have a good understanding of his personality and that that should be a factor. He’ll be thinking about it. While he will understand the possibility of violence, he also took an oath that he would enforce the law. He is bound to go forward if he feels a crime was committed, and that he can prove it beyond reasonable doubt before our courts. He can only prepare and have the federal government prepared for whatever reaction may occur as a consequence of the charges or the trial. He has an obligation, as attorney general, to ensure that all crimes are prosecuted. You must also deal with any repercussions .”
