Report Reveals Joe Biden’s Quiet Attempt To Push Trump Prosecution

via Forbes Breaking News

President Joe Biden reportedly pressured Attorney General Merrick Garland in 2022 to prosecute former President Donald Trump.

A New York Times report from April 2022 highlighted Biden’s frustration with Garland’s approach and his belief that Trump posed a threat to democracy and should be prosecuted.

“The attorney general’s deliberative approach has come to frustrate Democratic allies of the White House and, at times, President Biden himself,” the Times wrote. (Trending: Judge Announces Historic Ruling In Jeffrey Epstein Case)

“As recently as late last year, Mr. Biden confided to his inner circle that he believed former President Donald J. Trump was a threat to democracy and should be prosecuted, according to two people familiar with his comments.”

“And while the president has never communicated his frustrations directly to Mr. Garland, he has said privately that he wanted Mr. Garland to act less like a ponderous judge and more like a prosecutor who is willing to take decisive action over the events of Jan. 6,” the report added.

Since then, Trump has faced legal challenges and indictments at both state and federal levels, with implications for his potential candidacy in the 2024 election.

Biden has made public statements suggesting Trump’s involvement in the January 6 events, although he noted that the courts would ultimately decide on the matter.

“Is Trump an insurrectionist, sir?” a reporter questioned Biden.

“I think … it’s self-evident.” Biden said.

“Whether the Fourteenth Amendment applies, we’ll let the Court make that decision.”

“But he certainly supported an insurrection,” Biden said.

“No question about it. None. Zero.”
