(JustPatriots.com)- According to a legal “expert,” it is unlikely the Justice Department will indict former President Donald Trump any time in the near future, despite the Twitter Resistance demanding it.
After Judge Aileen Cannon overruled Special Master Raymond Dearie that ordered the former president’s lawyers to submit formal objections to the FBI’s inventory report, Resistance Twitter’s Law Contingent quickly blasted Cannon and demanded that the DOJ indict Trump now.
Among those Resistance Law tweeters calling for Trump’s immediate indictment was Harvard law professor emeritus Laurence Tribe, who never tires of bleating about the “walls closing in” on Trump.
In a tweet after Cannon’s ruling, Tribe said the Justice Department should indict Trump right away to “render her delays and game playing moot.”
Fellow Resistance Law bleater, Glenn Kirshner, chimed in, tweeting that he “couldn’t agree more” with Tribe’s call to indict Trump.
But one Resistance Law personality, law professor Barbara McQuade, tossed a wet blanket on her fellow Resistance members, telling Newsweek that prosecutors aren’t likely to indict Trump until after they complete a review of the materials seized from Mar-a-Lago.
While McQuade thinks the DOJ already has enough on Trump to indict him, she thinks prosecutors won’t take that step until after they’ve had a chance to review the documents and interview the people who had access to them at Mar-a-Lago.
Late last month, the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals dealt a blow to the Trump legal team, granting the Department of Justice’s request to be allowed to examine the classified documents seized during the August 8 raid on Mar-a-Lago.
During the raid, the FBI seized thousands of files, of which 103 were marked classified, including 54 labeled “secret” and 18 labeled “top secret.”
The 3-judge panel lifted Cannon’s previous order blocking the DOJ from examining the classified documents. Two of the judges were Trump appointees and one was appointed by Obama.
With the appeals court ruling, the government will no longer have to hand over the 103 classified documents to the special master.
