Trump's day of reckoning is overdue. Garland's special counsel move adds to the delay.

By appointing a special counsel to investigate Trump, the attorney general likely doomed a prompt and focused determination of whether the former president should be indicted.

Attorney General Merrick Garland’s decision to appoint a special counsel to investigate former President Donald Trump is a miscalculation, with the main problem being timing. 

The stunning sweep of the mandate Garland conferred on special counsel Jack Smith likely doomed a prompt and focused determination of whether Trump should be indicted.  

The stunning sweep of the mandate Garland conferred on special counsel Jack Smith likely doomed a prompt and focused determination of whether Trump should be indicted.

Despite assurances from Garland that a special counsel will not bog down the investigation, reality suggests otherwise. Smith will oversee not one but two ongoing investigations: The efforts to disrupt the counting of the Electoral College ballots on Jan. 6, 2021, and Trump’s possession of classified documents and presidential records at his Mar-a-Lago home after leaving office.  

For the first one alone, the attorney general has directed Smith to investigate whether “any person or entity unlawfully interfered with the transfer of power following the 2020 presidential election or the certification of the Electoral College on or about January 6, 2021.”
