Perhaps the wheels of justice move very slowly, but am I alone in being concerned by the length of time that has passed since Trump left office with NO federal criminal charges being filed against him for either his business dealings or any of the criminal acts he perpetrated during the time he was in office? Yes, we hear that his CFO Allen Weisselberg has been indicted, but that was for state, and not federal charges. Plus, that’s not Trump.
There’s no shortage of federal charges that could be brought and much of the evidence has already been seen and heard by the American public on television: multiple counts of obstruction of justice (Comey investigation), campaign finance violations, attempt to influence an election, incite insurrection…that’s just off the top of my head. There’s likely a bunch more I’m not recalling.
Yes, there are several investigations going on, but how long are these going to drag out? It seems to me there’s a benefit in moving with celerity while memories are still fresh and witnesses still available to testify. I feel that window could soon be closing. It’s understandable that prosecutors would want to have the best evidence available and have all their ducks in a row to ensure success before embarking on what would be a historic undertaking. But at the same time, the iron should be struck while it’s still hot and there’s a chance of avoiding more shenanigans before another election cycle comes along.
