Americans are likely sick to death of political investigations taking up all of our elected officials’ time, especially as we await another round of coronavirus stimulus.
It seems as though our public servants have completely forgotten who they serve, and they’ve been consistently choosing to mire themselves in lengthy probes against one another, hoping to score the political points they need in order to remain in their positions of opulence and wealth.
In the meantime, a federal moratorium on evictions is set to expire at the end of the year, imperiling an incredible number of Americans who’ve had trouble making ends meet on account of the coronavirus pandemic.
Now, with Joe Biden seemingly on the path to taking the White House in January, there is even talk about possible investigations of Donald Trump…but it might not be what you expect.
President-elect Joe Biden has privately told advisers that he doesn’t want his presidency to be consumed by investigations of his predecessor, according to five people familiar with the discussions, despite pressure from some Democrats who want inquiries into President Donald Trump, his policies and members of his administration.
Biden has raised concerns that investigations would further divide a country he is trying to unite and risk making every day of his presidency about Trump, said the sources, who spoke on background to offer details of private conversations.
They said he has specifically told advisers that he is wary of federal tax investigations of Trump or of challenging any orders Trump may issue granting immunity to members of his staff before he leaves office. One adviser said Biden has made it clear that he “just wants to move on.”
President Trump has bee a frequent target of federal investigations, as the Democrats repeatedly used their time in office to “resist” the CEO-in-Chief’s political whims.
