The justice correspondent for The Nation lets off a little steam about Merrick Garland's decision to defend Trump in E. Jean Carroll's defamation lawsuit.
AG Merrick Garland was questioned in the Senate on Wednesday about the DOJ's decision to defend former President Donald Trump in E. Jean Carroll's defamation case, who has alleged that she was raped.
His statements regarding the woman who is accusing him of rape don't fall under the category of "government employee doing his job." DUH.
Trump can't pretend that he defamed E. Jean Carroll as part of his "duties" as so-called president.

"There is not a single person in the United States—not the president and not anyone else—whose job description includes slandering women they sexually assaulted," Carroll's lawyers said.
The Fox News Legal Analyst says the DOJ intervening to personally defend Trump against E. Jean Carroll's defamation lawsuit is "a violation of the due process rights of the plaintiff."
If Trump's daughter-in-law, Lara Trump, really believes what she said about Joe Biden to Fox's Jeanine Pirro this Saturday evening, when is she going to ask Donald Trump to follow suit?
E. Jean Carroll has been a long-time beloved columnist at Elle. But going after Trump for rape was "interferring" with her duties? Shame on Trump and shame on Elle.
"If you're not gonna hold Trump accountable, you're NOT a journalist." The late night host brought her guns to that knife fight.
She avoids using the word, and explains why.
