Joe Scarborough goes OFF on Atty Gen. Merrick Garland for not investigating the Secret Service over deleted texts.

Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough sounded off on Attorney General Merrick Garland’s failure to investigate the Secret Service over their alleged deleted texts in a rant on Wednesday morning.

“This is not about the Secret Service,” said Scarborough. “This is not about Donald Trump. This is about American democracy. We need transparency, we need accountability, and the Secret Service decided protecting Donald Trump is more important than protecting American democracy. I can't imagine, I can't imagine how the Department of Justice wouldn't launch an investigation today. Hey, Merrick! Wake up!Merrick Garland. Wake up. Wake up. Wake up. Hey, Merrick, wake up. Investigate this cover-up.

“Let me put it in stark terms for you in case you're afraid to break Marcus of Queensbury rules in boxing. There was an attempted fascist overthrow of American democracy. The people that taxpayers pay to protect the presidency – not Donald Trump, but the presidency – they destroyed text messages that would have taken us to the heart of the fascist conspiracy to overthrow American democracy. This isn't a normal day at the office, Merrick. This isn't a normal day at the office for for the head of DHS. This is a cover-up of a fascist takeover of American democracy.
