I’m inclined to agree with this….
I’ve said so here at the PDog that Trump’s worries are NOT with the Feds….
Garland really seems uninterested in pursuing the ex-President for his possible acts of criminality…
But the Fulton County , Georgia DA IS on the case….
Any charges there could be followed by civil and possible business fraud charges from the New York Attorney General or Manhattan NYC DA….
Donald Trump has some SERIOUS Legal problems brewing…
He’s racing to ‘declare’ for 2024…which he THINKS will supply him with a ‘get out of jail free card’…..
The Feds COULD do conspiracy, tax fraud, IRS tax, secure documents and the stuff as criminal charges….
THEY may never happen….
Laurence Tribe, professor emeritus of constitutional law at Harvard University, predicted that former President Donald Trump will face an indictment in Georgia before he is potentially charged with a crime by the Justice Department.
Georgia’s Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis early last year launched an investigation into Trump’s efforts to overturn President Joe Biden‘s election victory in her state. Leaked audio showed in January 2021 that Trump, while still serving as president, urged Georgia’s Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, a Republican, to “find” enough votes to flip the election in his favor.
A number of prominent legal experts have alleged that Trump’s and his allies’ actions in Georgia appear to be a straightforward crime and should result in charges. Willis has sent target letters to multiple Trump allies in recent days as the probe continues, with a grand jury reviewing evidence and issuing subpoenas.
“Even now the proof is there, for example, with respect to strong-arming Raffensperger to steal the votes of Georgia, that’s already there,” Tribe told CBSNews on Wednesday, assessing whether or not there is enough evidence to charge Trump with a crime related to the 2020 election and his efforts to overturn his loss.
“That’s why I expect an indictment from Fani Willis in Fulton County, Georgia, even before an indictment from the Department of Justice,” the legal expert said….
More on Trump’s Georgia legal problem….If he gets indicted there…Will the dam break on other criminal charges?
The Criminal Case Against Trump Is Getting Stronger
David French: “To understand why, let’s turn briefly to Georgia—the state where evidence of his alleged criminality has always been the most compelling.”
“Indeed, as the criminal investigation plays out, the fake-electors scheme may well be the most clearly illegal element of the entire effort to overturn the election. Their designations represent a series of concrete, overt acts that move beyond verbal bluster about election fraud and raise the question—who initiated, approved, and/or directed the scheme?”
“As I’ve written before, Trump’s recorded demand that Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger ‘find 11,780 votes’—along with his not-so-veiled threat that Raffensperger faced a ‘big risk’ of criminal prosecution if he failed—was already quite legally problematic. Add this threat to the fake-electors scheme, and the elements of a criminal conspiracy come clearly into view.”
