Sorry, I was very unclear. Please forgive the misunderstanding.
I meant what is the difference between a hearing and a trial? To me they are both very similar events that take place in the same kind of courtroom.
What I was trying to convey is that I am looking forward to a time when those investigations lead to a different set of [hearings/trials??] conducted by DOJ. For now a brief description of the difference between the two official proceedings is what I am asking about.
The more things change, the more they stay the same…
So, if the Feds execute a warrant to search for presidential records Trump should have kept, but find evidence of Russian collusion or instigation of the Jan 6 insurrection, will it be like the cops getting a warrant to find illegal guns and finding heroin? How would this play out?
So it may depend on how the warrant is specifically worded. If it’s “to search Mar-A-Lago” anything is fair game. If it’s “looking for documents from the Trump Administration that belong in the National Archives”… It could be that they had to word the warrant very narrowly in order to get a judge to sign off on it.
