Joe Biden is determined to do whatever it takes to stop Donald Trump from running for President again.
Biden is willing to toss Trump in jail if that’s what it takes.
And Donald Trump will be furious when he hears what one CNN legal analyst said about this looming indictment.
During a recent episode of the podcast for the left-wing website the Bulwark, CNN legal analyst Elie Honig discussed the latest information surrounding the events on January 6 and the Mar-a-Lago raid on Trump’s estate.
Honig said he believes Trump will be indicted by the Democrat District Attorney in Fulton County, Georgia, over a phone call he made to Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger regarding the results in the 2020 election.
However, Willis did admit that winning a conviction would be a near impossible task for the prosecution.
“I’m not saying any of these are locks. More likely than not Fani Willis does indict Donald Trump in the next few months. As I lay out in the book, I think that’s going to be a very difficult case to convert from indictment to conviction,” Honig stated.
Based on the prosecutors anti-Trump Special Counsel Jack Smith brought on to his team, Honig siad he expects Smith to recommend charging the former President over the Mar-a-Lago dispute.
“The Special Counsels have to recommend what they want to Garland, but Garland ultimately has the final say. I believe Jack Smith will recommend indicting Trump on Mar-a-Lago. I say that partially because I know two of the people on Jack Smith’s team. They haven’t told me. I haven’t spoken with them. I don’t know anything, but I know who they are. They were SDNY prosecutors who are supremely aggressive. There’s no way they left their prior gigs to go over and take a huge pay cut and not charge Donald Trump,” Honig added.
But even if he does recommend charging Trump, Honig noted that it still has to be approved by Attorney General Merrick Garland.
Honig put the chances of Garland approving the charges at 50/50.
“But if Jack Smith does recommend that, Merrick Garland can overrule him. So I think it’s likely Smith recommends an indictment on documents. I’m 50/50 on whether Garland goes along with it. I do not think the DOJ ends up indicting Trump on January 6th. I think for the reasons I just said. I think Garland could have done it. I think it’s going to be too late,” Honig declared.
At the end of his answer, Honig did slip up and reveal what the investigations were really about.
The witch hunts and investigations are designed to convince Republicans to believe that Trump can’t win due to the “cloud of scandal” around his campaign and nominate someone else.
“I mean, on the one hand, people say nothing motivates Donald Trump and his followers like a fight. I mean, remember the day his Mar-a-Lago was searched? He got a surge in support and fundraising. On the other hand, at a certain point are the Ron DeSantis, Nikki Haleys, and their supporters of the world going to say, ‘look, the guy’s carrying one, maybe more indictments into Primary season, like enough’s enough.’ I’m not a political expert, but I understand the debate there,” Honig concluded.
