There is absolutely no denying that the liberal left and the media miscreants under their tutelage are out to get Donald Trump, but the latest “news” from MSNBC appears to have jumped the shark.
Trump is under some serious political and legal pressure at the moment, after a number of investigations into his conduct sprung up in the wake of his first term as President. These probes have ranged from the asinine to absurd, largely, and Teflon Don has yet to face any charges despite them.
Still, some within the mainstream media can’t seem to stop fantasizing about Trump’s purportedly inevitable indictment.
MSNBC legal analyst Neal Katyal said on this week’s broadcast on MSNBC’s “The Sunday Show” former President Donald Trump will be indicted for mishandling documents in Winter 2023.
Katyal said, “The Justice Department on Friday filed a motion to say, we want to appeal this whole question of a special master, because Jonathan, you don’t get a special master if you’re a normal person ever. And Judge Cannon said the reason why he gets one is because he’s the former president. That is not exactly powerful legal reasoning. And so the department has said, the court of appeals, please hear our case right now. It’s true that we can do a lot of the criminal investigation on the hundred most sensitive documents, but there are thousands of other pages that we would like to look at, and you can’t shackle us. I think the department is basically saying, look, we’ve had it with Judge Cannon. She is erratic, and she is unprincipled. Her orders are obviously wrong.”
Katyal was even willing to wildly speculate about when Trump may be charged.
Katyal said, “It depends a little bit on how fast this appeal can take place. I think it can take place pretty quickly, and by the end of December, I think we could get a decision there which will tee up the question about when to indict in the winter of 2023.”
That timeline would almost certainly coincide with the projected timing of an announcement by Trump regarding his 2024 election plans, and, as such, would likely be seen as a political attack against the former President, perhaps coming from the Biden administration’s DOJ itself.
