DOJ mulling potential special counsel if Trump runs in 2024
« on: November 07, 2022, 05:24:27 PM »
Washington(CNN) As Donald Trump inches closer to launching another presidential run after the midterm election, Justice Department officials have discussed whether a Trump candidacy would create the need for a special counsel to oversee two sprawling federal investigations related to the former president, sources familiar with the matter tell CNN.

The Justice Department is also staffing up its investigations with experienced prosecutors so it's ready for any decisions after the midterms, including the potential unprecedented move of indicting a former president. Top aides to Trump have been eyeing the third week of November as an ideal launch point for his campaign, with two sources telling CNN on Friday morning that the team has specifically discussed November 14.

In the weeks leading up to the election, the Justice Department has observed the traditional quiet period of not making any overt moves that may have political consequences. But behind the scenes, investigators have remained busy, using aggressive grand jury subpoenas and secret court battles to compel testimony from witnesses in both the investigation into Trump's efforts to overturn the 2020 election and his alleged mishandling of national security documents kept at his Palm Beach home.

Trump's not afraid of these SOB's. Their sorry asses have been after him since he came down the escalator. If Trump is elected POSTUS again look for him along with a powerful congress and senate to shut the swap and thousands unelected bureaucrats down for good.

Mulling?!?  Mulling????

    mull
    /məl/

verb
gerund or present participle: mulling

    think about (a fact, proposal, or request) deeply and at length.
    "she began to mull over the various possibilities

###

I guess we did not see what we saw:


And, I guess we will never find out this:
Capitol Police Officer Says of Jan. 6 Pro-Trump Rioters: 'A Hitman Sent Them'
"I want you to get to the bottom of that," U.S. Capitol Police Sgt. Harry Dunn implored lawmakers


Because, we need to "mull" it all over...

Either charge #tfg or just tell us that lying, mysogony, adultery / raw-dogging porn stars and tax evasion laws are suspended for everyone!

I read this as Trump is likely going to be indicted and DOJ is "mulling" whether the prosecution should be turned over to Special Prosecutor as opposed to a DOJ Prosecutor.

Mueller was a special counsel.  That worked well.

So was Archibald Cox.
