Is Trump (finally) going to be charged by DOJ for January 6?
The Washington Post said DOJ is investigating President Donald Trump’s January 6 actions. Then NBC News interviewed Merrick Garland. Now comes the hard part.
On Tuesday, The Washington Post reported that the Justice Department is investigating former President Donald Trump’s actions as part of its broader Jan. 6 criminal probe. Earlier in the day, in an exclusive interview with Lester Holt on NBC News, Attorney General Merrick Garland suggested that the Justice Department’s federal criminal investigation has moved far beyond the rioters who attacked the Capitol.
Trump should be worried, say many experts.
He’s probably not, though.
Maybe we’re asking the wrong question. Trump may not be worried about the Post report or Garland’s interview. But should he be?
It seems Trump has never been worried about anything. He didn’t seem to worry when the power of the Justice Department was arrayed against him in the form of the Mueller investigation. He mocked the probe with sarcastic tweets. He certainly doesn’t seem too concerned with what he calls the “Un-Select” Jan. 6 committee. So maybe we’re asking the wrong question. Trump may not be worried about the Post report or Garland’s interview. But should he be?
