A report from Bloomberg says that if the Department of Justice is going to charge Donald Trump over his alleged mishandling of government documents, it will wait to do so until after the midterm elections. Such a decision would be in keeping with the DOJ’s practice of avoiding making any prosecutorial decisions of politicians within three months of an election in order to steer clear of appearing to act in a political manner. Ironically, the Justice Department deliberately waiting until after an election to charge people is a political act as well and can only serve to help the people who are under investigation. Furthermore, Trump isn’t even on the ballot in 2022 so it doesn’t make sense that such a policy would extend to him. Ultimately, these considerations may end up being moot since it takes a long time to collect evidence on a case, particularly for one that’s as high profile as one pertaining to a former president. Even if an election wasn’t around the corner, it still would likely take several more months before the DOJ was ready to press charges.
