U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland will appoint a special counsel to determine whether former President Donald Trump should face criminal charges according to a report Friday. The Department of Justice is investigating Trump for taking documents to Mar-a-Lago.
The Wall Street Journal broke the news of another special counsel to look at Trump. This comes three days after Trump announced plans to run for president in 2024. Trump faces multiple criminal investigations including one about Trump taking documents to Mar-a-Lago.
The latest report from that was that Trump kept documents that were [ersonal to him and he did it for ego, not for any nefarious purposes. For example, taking Kim Jong-un’s letters is hardly a national security threat, and if they bring charges over that whoever Garland appoints will get laughed out of court.
According to The Wall Street Journal:
Merrick Garland hasn’t appointed a special counsel to investigate Hunter Joe Biden yet, but he’s going to appoint one to investigate Trump. For the bazillionth time. The same week we learned there was nothing to the Mar-a-Lago docs. What a hack. https://t.co/Gk3qKCPSWO via @WSJ
