Trump Will Be Indicted, Former US Attorney General Says

Former President Donald Trump as well as other top officials from his administration will be indicted by the U.S. government over their role in the January 6 attack on the US Capitol and their efforts to overturn the 2020 election results, predicted former US Attorney General Eric Holder.

Holder’s prediction came during an interview on HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher on Friday evening.

The former attorney general explained that he previously was “concerned about the divisive nature of a case against the former president,” but because of new revelations coming from the Jan 6 Committee, he believes Trump will be indicted in the next coming days.

“Because of what we know from what great journalists have done, the leaks that have come from the January 6th committee, if you show me that Donald Trump was involved in the efforts to, in essence, to foment a coup, and you can show the requisite intent, he has to be indicted,” he said.

Holder also pointed to an ongoing investigation by Georgia’s Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis, suggesting this could be the strongest case against Trump because he was caught on tape committing a criminal act during a phone call to Georgia’s Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger.

“You’ve got him on tape saying find me 11,780 votes,” Holder said. “That one is close to a layup, it seems to me,” and added that the Georgia probe could also become part of a federal case against Trump.

The former Attorney General went on to say that “a lot of high-level people in the Trump administration, I suspect the president himself, people at the Justice Department, are all going to find themselves on a little document that says, ‘The United States vs. fill-in the blank.'”
