The Washington Post recently reported that the FBI and the Department of Justice delayed for more than a year opening a criminal investigation into Donald Trump and his associates for their attempt to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election. The reporting is disturbing, revealing that career prosecutors had recommended investigating Trump and his associate but FBI And DOJ leadership refused, working about the appearance of partisanship. This video does a deep dive into the potential damage to the quest for accountability of the lengthy delay in opening a criminal probe into Trump and his criminal associates. Additionally, this video discusses how declining to open a criminal investigation when there was “adequate predications” – enough evidence – to open a probe for fear of it appearing political is indeed a political act itself, and should NOT be a consideration. Rather, the decision to open a criminal investigation should be based ONLY on the facts and the law, not concerns of how it will be perceived or criticized by others. This video also discusses the silver lining of Donald Trump thinking his best shot at avoiding accountability, and avoiding prison, was to announce he was again running for president. The reality is this decision by Trump is what prompted Attorney General Merrick Garland to appoint Jack Smith as special counsel, which accelerated the pace and scope of the criminal probe into Trump and company.
