Attorney General Merrick Garland has appointed a special counsel to investigate former President Donald Trump. Do not be fooled: this act is not intended to remove Trump from the battlefield, but rather to help him ride to victory and become the GOP 2024 candidate.

President Trump achieved his highest-ever approval rating of 49%, as measured by Gallup, in the week the Senate convened to impeach him in 2020. In the months during which the House held endless hearings on the terrible riots of January 6, President Trump’s popularity rose.
