1. My guess, the announcement won't have anything to do with either case.

Nor will it have anything to do with Trump. It will be a total yawn. IIRC, he's done this before.

but MG *is* the knife and Biden probably should have pulled the gun,
What I mean is, overthrowing a government is beyond illegal. It's war. Look at how lame the laws and sentences are, for the insurrection crimes. Trump's departing helicopter from the White House to Mar-A-Shithole should have been diverted to Gitmo. He's an enemy combatant. In fact, what he did was surely less bloody, but FAR more dangerous, than 9/11.

in the Biden situation and we all know the Pig refused to return the docs.

I already said it once but I think the GOP may use this to try to leverage a "sweep it all under the rug".

Both sides walk away and that fn snake Trump gets to slide again.

4. Also, wouldn't a Special Counsel sort of defang a rabid Congress looking to investigate everything?
