DOJ Prosecutors Detail ‘Sufficient’ Evidence for Indictment of Donald Trump


And so it has come to this.  After years of being targeted by the Democratic Party and the Deep State, Donald Trump faces one of his most troubling threats yet from the Biden Administration’s Department of Justice.

Trump, whose elevated legal risks have appeared to be politically-timed, is now staring down a possible indictment by the DOJ just ahead of the 2022 midterm elections – and right before many political pundits believe that he’ll make an announcement about his potential 2024 run.

A group of Justice Department prosecutors believe there is sufficient evidence to charge Donald Trump with obstruction of justice, but the path to an actual indictment is far from clear.

The team that’s part of the classified records probe has not yet made a formal recommendation to Attorney General Merrick Garland, who would ultimately approve or reject such a move, according to people familiar with the matter. It’s also unlikely officials would bring only obstruction charges amid several other Trump investigations into potential crimes, the people said.

That wasn’t all:

In addition, while some Federal Bureau of Investigation agents oppose bringing such a politically charged case as Trump considers a 2024 presidential bid, others support action, said the people, who asked for anonymity to discuss information not yet public. Agents, however, don’t make the final decisions.

“Of all the things Trump is being investigated for around the country, obstruction of justice is a slam dunk and I think he’s going to be indicted,” said Frank Figliuzzi, former FBI assistant director for counterintelligence. “I don’t see why a charge of obstruction of justice couldn’t be filed by the end of the year.”

Of course, the move would be unprecedented, and the Biden administration hasn’t exuded a great deal of enthusiasm over the idea of potentially charging Trump in the past.  This means, in short, that these threats could all be simple political posturing and nothing else.
