Biden’s DOJ Caught Tricking Trump
A Florida prosecutor has said that the Department of Justice (DOJ) has issued several subpoenas to allies of former President Donald Trump in the past as part of the Jan. 6 investigation. As the prosecutor notes, this shows that Trump’s allies have “a false sense of security,” based on their responses.
As Dave Aronberg, the state attorney for Palm Beach County, Florida, said during a segment on CNN’s “The Situation Room”, the shock in the responses of Stephen Bannon and other MAGA leaders shows that many had a sense of security in the past. However, this “slow build” is something that Attorney General Garland has been famous for in his prosecutorial career, as Dave Aronberg noted.
In the past week, the Justice Department issued approximately 40 subpoenas as part of the investigation into the efforts of Trump and his supporters to overturn the election results in 2020.
Aronberg also said that it is interesting that the subpoenas were issued before the start of the 60-day pre-election “quiet period.” It seems this was to avoid any claims of these decisions seeking to influence the results of the election.
Aronberg further spoke about potential DOJ moves that could be made as part of the probe into the “fake electors” scheme. He also said that Trump’s allies were aware they could potentially be prosecuted for “conspiracy to defraud the United States,” as well as “obstruction of an official proceeding.”
Florida prosecutors have also suggested that the departments ought to look into the financial exchanges from Trump’s Save America PAC. There have previously been reports that the DOJ’s special grand jury has been looking at the committee’s formation and fundraising efforts.
