FSFP President John Bonifaz recently appeared on The BradCast to discuss our call on Attorney General Merrick Garland to resign from his post for failing to hold former president Trump and his associates accountable for the January 6th insurrection and for all other potential federal crimes they may have committed.

“We are of the view now, after having waited many months for action from Attorney General Garland, that he is no longer fit for this job…No action for nine plus months in the face of this insurrection that happened in January, in the face of all the criminal activity that happened during the Trump administration, is unacceptable. We need an Attorney General who is going to enforce the rule of law, including against the former president of the United States,” said Bonifaz.

Last week, Free Speech For People issued a statement demanding AG Garland’s  resignation after months of failing to hold Trump and his associates accountable. FSFP had previously urged then-AG-designate Garland to establish a Justice Department task force to investigate Trump and his associates for his repeated efforts to undermine the 2020 and 2024 elections, obstruction of justice, and a host of other potential federal crimes. The organization argued that this action would help to “reestablish the bedrock principle that we are a nation of laws and that no one – not even the president – is above the law.”

“The fact that there’s been no action whatsoever on any of these offenses, including the ones that were well-established the moment Garland took office as Attorney General, that is what is deeply concerning and signals that they ultimately do not intend to engage in holding [Trump] accountable. Now, we’re ready to be surprised but at this point – nine plus months after he’s taken office – we need new leadership in the Department of Justice, in our view, to ensure the rule of law is enforced,” said Bonifaz.
