According to a report in the New York Times,
Federal prosecutors have begun a grand jury investigation into whether classified White House documents that ended up at former President Donald J. Trump’s Florida home were mishandled, according to two people briefed on the matter.
The intensifying inquiry suggests that the Justice Department is examining the role of Mr. Trump and other officials in his White House in their handling of sensitive materials during the final stages of his administration.
In recent days, the Justice Department has taken a series of steps showing that its investigation has progressed beyond the preliminary stages. Prosecutors issued a subpoena to the National Archives and Records Administration to obtain the boxes of classified documents, according to the two people familiar with the matter, who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the ongoing investigation.
The authorities have also made interview requests to people who worked in the White House in the final days of Mr. Trump’s presidency, according to one of the people.
For many people on the “When is Trump getting prosecuted” watch, this is more than welcome news.
We should all remember that Trump got into office in large part because of bogus claims that Hillary Clinton mishandled classified information by using a private email server. That is nothing compared to a former president stealing top-secret documents from the White House and taking them to his Florida resort.
If we use Trump’s own standard for judging Clinton, then he needs to be locked up.
Maybe soon some of his other offenses like attempting to overthrow the United States Government can start getting the prosecution they deserve.
