DOJ fast-tracking Trump investigations ahead of Jan. 6 hearings: Kirschner

Former federal prosecutor Glenn Kirschner has suggested the Justice Department will soon indict Donald Trump and his ‘co-conspirators’ in anticipation of public outrage over the former president’s attempt to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election.

Talk to The Dean Obeidallah Show On SiriusXM, Kirschner discussed a series of updates in federal investigations surrounding Trump and his inner circle in recent days, including reports that several of his attorneys — Rudy Giuliani, John Eastman and Jenna Ellis — have been subpoenaed. to testify before a federal grand jury in an investigation into bogus election officials who attempted to falsely declare Trump the winner of multiple states in 2020.

On May 30, former White House trade adviser Peter Navarro also revealed that he had been summoned by a federal grand jury to turn over to the DOJ “any communication” he had with Trump and his lawyer.

Kirschner said the “burst of activity” from federal prosecutors could be in anticipation of a national outcry over why Trump and his allies have not already been charged.

On June 9, the House Select Committee investigating the January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol will hold the first of eight televised hearings in which it will provide evidence regarding Trump’s state of mind and the events leading up to the riot.

The hearings will see the panel deliver its findings after hearing testimony from dozens of witnesses and receiving thousands of documents relating to the attack on the Capitol.

“Could it be because the Department of Justice got wind of what the American people are going to see specifically, from June 9th, regarding the crimes of Donald Trump and his co-conspirators and people are going to cry bloody murder? bloody “Why weren’t they charged?” said Kirschner.

“I feel like all of a sudden the DOJ is in full sprint, anticipating what we’re all about to see.”

The House panel said it would be prepared to submit any evidence of criminal behavior to the DOJ, which is already conducting a separate investigation into the Capitol attack that resulted in hundreds of indictments.

Kirschner also suggested that the increased attention to the former president’s inner circle shows that federal prosecutors are “working [their] right up the criminal food chain” to Trump.

Elsewhere, a special grand jury in Georgia began hearing testimony on Wednesday from witnesses subpoenaed as part of the investigation into whether Trump’s phone call to Georgian Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger to “find” 11 780 votes was a criminal offence.

After hearing testimony from witnesses, the special grand jury will deliver its report to Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis, who will make a decision on whether or not to indict the former president.

Willis’ office is considering whether to bring criminal charges against the bogus election officials who tried to falsely declare Trump the winner of Georgia in 2020 as part of the investigation.
