Despite Joe Biden’s campaign promises about letting bygones be bygones and leading as a “healer” for this torn nation, it appears as though his Justice Department is about to take serious aim at former President Donald Trump.
Trump has been under investigation by both a select committee and the DOJ regarding his actions on and around the date of January 6th, 2021. In fact, he’s already been acquitted once of “inciting” the riot that led to the attempted insurrection at the Capitol, but this answer just simply did not suit the Democrats’ purpose, and so they’re trying to make trouble for Trump again.
Their latest attempt at taking Trump out of the political picture could even include criminal charges.
The Justice Department is investigating President Donald Trump’s actions as part of its criminal probe of efforts to overturn the 2020 election results, according to four people familiar with the matter.
Prosecutors who are questioning witnesses before a grand jury — including two top aides to Vice President Mike Pence — have asked in recent days about conversations with Trump, his lawyers, and others in his inner circle who sought to substitute Trump allies for certified electors from some states Joe Biden won, according to two people familiar with the matter. Both spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss an ongoing investigation.
The prosecutors have asked hours of detailed questions about meetings Trump led in December 2020 and January 2021; his pressure campaign on Pence to overturn the election; and what instructions Trump gave his lawyers and advisers about fake electors and sending electors back to the states, the people said. Some of the questions focused directly on the extent of Trump’s involvement in the fake-elector effort led by his outside lawyers, including John Eastman and Rudy Giuliani, these people said.
The revelation signifies a rather large escalation against Trump by the Biden administration, and at a time in which our nation is already heavily divided.
