Some political and legal experts suggest that President Biden’s embarrassment over the discovery of classified documents in his home might forestall any effort to prosecute Donald J. Trump for the same thing.
Hah! Make that a hah, hah!
Those who are suggesting Trump is in the clear had better check the record. The ex-POTUS is being investigated for a greater number of alleged misdeeds than just the document caper that involves his taking of classified documents from the White House as he was vacating the presidency.
Attorney General Merrick Garland well might forgo a criminal indictment on that case.
But wait! Trump also has the matter of inciting the 1/6 insurrection. He’s also facing a potential indictment in Fulton County, Ga., for pressuring election officials in Georgia to overturn the results of the 2020 election.
The dude is still lost deep in the criminal justice woods.
As for whether Donald Trump can still stand trial for violating federal law by squirreling away classified documents, I believe that is a real possibility.
The man’s troubles are just beginning.
