“Donald Trump has no defense in Georgia”, says a former prosecutor
Currently, there is no indication that the U.S. Department of Justice has launched a formal investigation to bring charges against the former U.S. president.
At most, at the beginning of the Commission’s public works, U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland indicated that he and his team would follow all public hearings. Without further details.
The pressure is on Garland, however, as the committee’s work now exposes stark and troubling truths about Donald Trump’s intentions and schemes to stay in office and thus avoid a peaceful transfer of power in the aftermath of his defeat.
And under the circumstances, the lack of prosecution could become shocking to Americans.
Rightly so, says Jack Goldsmith, a former attorney at the Justice Department under George W. Bush.
