Response to ProudMNDemocrat (Original post)

5. Right now, the DOJ lawyers would probably refuse to do it.

If he somehow found someone willing to indict, the grand jury would likely be suspicious and might refuse. It's rare for a grand jury to refuse an indictment, but that's partly because it's rare for a federal prosecutor to show up with a weak case.

Assuming that they do indict, there is still a judge after that, and our courts are still independent enough to turn back a politically motivated indictment.
