When the DOJ carried out a search and seizure warrant at Donald Trump’s home for the classified documents he stole, it was immediately clear that Trump was on track to be criminally charged. When it subsequently surfaced that the Feds found nuclear secrets in Trump’s home, it was fairly clear that Trump is going to end up convicted. But now it turns out Trump is going down on a whole raft of charges.
For months Palmer Report has been emphasizing the publicly available reporting which revealed that the DOJ had at least three different active criminal investigations into Donald Trump: one for the classified documents, one for the election overthrow plot, and one for his social network. At any given point the media has only seemed to be able to pay attention to one of these probes at a time. But that doesn’t mean that the other probes have simply vanished. Now we’re being reminded of that in a big way.
The DOJ has sent out grand jury subpoenas to forty of Trump’s associates in the past week alone, per the New York Times. That’s not a typo; that’s forty subpoenas in a week. This means the DOJ’s probe into Trump’s election overthrow plot has kicked into the same kind of high gear that saw the DOJ’s classified documents probe carrying out a search and seizure warrant at Trump’s home.
This means that Donald Trump is the target of multiple rapidly escalating DOJ criminal pobes and, whether by happenstance or design, they’re crescendoing at the same time. The precise date is anyone’s guess. But it’s clear that the DOJ is going to criminally indict Trump on so many kinds of charges, he’ll end up convicted on enough of them that he’ll never get out of prison.
