TICK TOCK: Looming Indictment Against Trump Could Come Any Time Now, Former Federal Prosecutor Says

Donald Trump’s attempt to run out the clock on his multiple criminal investigations has failed, former U.S. Attorney Joyce Vance says, adding that it’s getting to be crunch time for the former president as he heads into a new year.

“I understand how so many people are impatient with the criminal justice system, which seems to move very slowly, but I think we’re finally at tick tock for Donald Trump,” Vance said during an interview on MSNBC.

“The Georgia district attorney is wrapping up her proceedings. The Mar-a-Lago documents situation ― where Trump took classified materials with him ― is extremely serious, and it’s the simplest kind of case to make. It’s not complicated like Jan. 6. So that, too, is I think a pressing consideration for the former president.”

A special grand jury investigating Trump’s attempt to overturn the 2020 presidential election in Georgia is reportedly wrapping up its work and has begun preparing its final report, indicating that prosecutors may soon be ready to pursue criminal charges.

Meanwhile, federal prosecutors are intensifying their investigation into Trump’s potential mishandling of highly classified materials after he left office, with investigators questioning multiple Trump associates about the documents.

Additionally, the House Jan 6 committee on Monday voted to refer four criminal charges against Trump to the Justice Department: obstructing an official proceeding, conspiring to defraud the United States, conspiring to make false statements, and inciting an insurrection against the United States. On Thursday night, the panel released its final 845-page report on its findings.

“The remarkable thing about Trump’s situation is that new information continues to come to light increasingly,” Vance said. “For instance, we learned this week about potential tax issues. And we know that the prosecutions in New York that involve his company could also ultimately lead to some sort of personal tax liability.”

“So, lots of reasons for him to be concerned heading into 2023,” she added.
