WASHINGTON, DC: Former President Donald Trump announced that he is running for president for the third time in 2024 and with a new slogan MAGAGA which stands for Make America Great and Glorious Again. In the wake of this development, US Attorney General has assigned a special counsel for two ongoing criminal investigations by the Department of Justice. Now people are demanding to impeach Merrick Garland for his remarks.

The Department of Justice announced that US Attorney General Merrick Garland named former federal prosecutor Jack Smith as the special counsel on Friday, November 18. This comes merely three days after Trump announced his plans to run for president in 2024. The first investigation is related to when he lost to Joe Biden as the statement reads, "Whether any person or entity unlawfully interfered with the transfer of power following the 2020 presidential election or the certification of the Electoral College vote held on or about January 6, 2021," and the second is, "Involving classified documents and other presidential records, as well as the possible obstruction of that investigation, referenced and described in court filings in a pending matter in the Southern District of Florida."

One user tweeted, "He weathered every autistic screech and infantile probe they unleashed. And finally announced his run. NOW they are engaged in election interference.. That is exactly what this is. The FBI leaked to WAPO that they found nothing and it was all a "political-op". Impeach Garland!" One more user wrote, "Garland says HE has concluded it's in the publics best interest for him to investigate Trump AGAIN when he hasn't found a damn thing in 2 years. It's time he stop using the public as an escape goat for his own mission to investigate Trump no one else wants it. IMPEACH THIS IDIOT!" Another user wrote, "Are the House Republicans going to impeach Merrick Garland? They better do. This loose canon must be removed. @RepJamesComer @Jim_Jordan"
