I have stated many times that Merrick Garland will more than likely drop the hammer at the most opportune time.
He has forced himself into a corner in terms of indicting Trump.
With all the moves the DOJ has made against him, not indicting Trump is probably worse for his image than indicting Trump.
Most in the GOP seem to feel the say way, believing that before the end of the year, an indictment will be handed down.
Brace for the Worst
Realistically, the window for Garland to indict Trump will close when the next term of Congress begins.
He will probably also want to beat Trump to the punch of announcing a presidential campaign.
For optics, if he indicts after Trump announces, it looks like yet another political attack against Trump.
A veteran GOP aide agreed, stating, “A couple of weeks after the election, I assume that Garland will indict Trump.”
The question is, will this help or hurt Trump?
Due to the outrage over the Mar-a-Lago raid, many believe this could get Trump significant support, but would it last through election day?
If Trump announces after the fact, then the party and voters have a massive decision to make in terms of the risk of nominating someone that could be headed to jail for espionage.
You guys already know I think it would be far too risky to nominate Trump if he is indicted, regardless of how weak the case appears to be.
Remember, we are talking about a justice system that just let two men walk who ran a shadow campaign to discredit a presidential candidate.
Is it really unreasonable to think that a judge and jury pool that let them walk would not convict Trump on a flimsy case?
