Bloomberg shared the news today that, due to a long-standing department policy, federal prosecutors are likely to wait until after the November election to announce any charges against Donald Trump. Assuming there are any, of course.

From the article:

Federal prosecutors are likely to wait until after the November election to announce any charges against Donald Trump, if they determine he broke laws, according to people familiar.

The unprecedented prospect of bringing charges against a former US president is creating intense scrutiny of the Justice Department in the aftermath of its search of his home at Mar-a-Lago. A separate DOJ probe is focused on his effort to overturn the 2020 election, which he lost to President Joe Biden.

Under long-standing department policy, prosecutors are barred from taking investigative steps or filing charges for the purpose of affecting an election or helping a candidate or party, traditionally 60 days before an election. This year, that would be by Sept. 10, which makes it unlikely anything would be announced until after Nov. 8, said people who asked to remain anonymous speaking about potential Justice Department actions.

This went over like a lead balloon with the “walls are closing in” crowd:

For “the resistance” it does.

There are some other theories about the possible delay:

This does seem a bit more plausible.

Guess everyone will just have to wait until November to find out, when no doubt the walls will be closing in. Again.
