How long will you give Garland the benefit of the doubt? [View all]

There's a clear difference between some posters already frustrated with the fact there hasn't been an indictment of Trump, while some say it's important we give him the benefit of the doubt--that an indictment will happen in time. My question is how long will you maintain that position?

Pick the longest length of time you are willing to continue to support Garland if an indictment has not yet been issued.

I've yet to see those so quick to defend the DOJ state whether they think trump will be indicted. CivicGrief Feb 2023 #12
I do not believe the DOJ will indict him for institutional respect bullshit. The GA DA and NY AG ZonkerHarris Feb 2023 #13
I have more faith in the state investigations as well. CivicGrief Feb 2023 #15
