Deputy AG Says Trump Probe Won’t End if He Announces 2024 Run

Gage Skidmore Fickr

The deputy attorney general says the Department of Justice will not stop its investigation into Donald Trump’s alleged efforts to undermine the 2020 election regardless if he announces his run for the 2024 election.

The Hill reports:

“We’re going to continue to do our job, to follow the facts wherever they go, no matter where they lead, no matter to what level,” Deputy Attorney General Lisa Monaco said Tuesday in response to questions after speaking at a cybersecurity conference in New York.

“We’re going to continue to investigate what was fundamentally an attack on our democracy.”

DOJ traditionally avoids investigative action that might implicate a candidate in the 60 days preceding an election. But Monaco’s comments indicate the Justice Department may not stick to that norm, which is not an official DOJ policy.

“The mandate the team has remains, which is to follow the facts wherever they go, regardless of what level, regardless of whether the subject of those investigations were present on Jan. 6,” Monaco said.

Monaco’s comments come as the DOJ has reportedly been expanding the scope of its investigation into Jan. 6 but has yet to directly investigate Trump as a key target.

Democrats January 6 witch hunt only shows their contempt against Trump, his supporters and their inability to build a case against him and any Republican. The Jan. 6 committee consists of a better than thou, hateful and illegal bunch of idiots who hate anything and anybody that doesn’t vote democrat or who they can’t pay off to vote for them through cheating or by lying. Personally, I believe Pelosi was behind the Jan. 6 event along with some of her colleagues and capital police. The idea is to keep people busy thinking about this sham trial but what is going on is the democrats wanting to get rid of their opposition and take total control of this country and our lives. Time for people to rise up against the swamp and take them out of government, never to again be allowed to hold office in government again! People need to investigate all Democrats and take them out. We aren’t in congress but they are and they are destroying our country ie selling our countries property and buildings to our enemy CHINA and especially near our military bases, selling our Intel to China and our advisories. How about the riots, border and millions of illegals, trying to take our constitution rights away. I’m tired of democrats and want them out of office. If they can’t stick up for us and protect us then get them out now. The democrats talk about democracy as if they are the only ones who support it.. He.l they don’t even know what it means!!! They are scum bags who can’t be trusted for their lying communist ways and Biden and his Radical troop of idiots are part of all of this!

Tis is not surprising as the end game is to make Trump so undesirable he could not possibly be elected to Dog Catcher. It just shows how much of a Political Scam this whole sideshow is. This is a criminal committee run by criminals.

But no investigation into Hunter Biden’s corruption despite GBs of data and video showing many and varied illegal activities. No investigation into Hillary Clinton and her use of the State Department to fund the Clinton Foundation, sell uranium to the Russians, or arms to Syria through Benghazi. The DOJ is only interested in pursuing Republicans and protecting Democrats (by smashing phones and hiding laptops). We are already a One Party nation, a Party that is gutting us so we fit in with the rest of the Third World as global governance proceeds. Obama succeeded in radically transforming America, and now he rules over the nation’s suicide (open borders, woke military, Communist educators, more fentanyl deaths in one year than the Korean and Viet Nam wars killed in 14 — the hand in the Biden sock puppet.
