The Justice Department has opened a grand jury criminal investigation into Trump’s theft of confidential documents.
Federal prosecutors have launched a grand jury investigation to see if classified White House documents that ended up at former President Donald J. Trump’s home in Florida have been mistreated, according to two people briefed on the matter.
In recent days, the Justice Department has taken a series of initiatives demonstrating that its investigation has gone beyond the preliminary stages. Prosecutors have issued a subpoena to the National Archives and Records Administration to obtain the boxes of confidential documents, according to two people familiar with the matter, who spoke on condition of anonymity due to the ongoing investigation.
Criminal charges in these cases are rare, but it’s a sign that Trump and his circle can’t do what they want. The Justice Department must investigate to determine if the documents have been improperly handled and if national security has been breached.
Remember that Trump took office largely due to false claims that Hillary Clinton mishandled confidential information using private emails, which is nothing compared to a former president stealing top-secret documents from the House. Bianca and takes them to her home in Florida.
If we use the Trump standard for judging Clinton, then he must be locked up.
