Right after the Republicans were determined to be the winners of the U.S. House, they announced plans to investigate Joe Biden, Hunter Biden, the DOJ, and more. In true anti-americanist fashion, the DNC Lawfare Chief, Attorney General Merrick Garland, announced his plans to appoint a special counsel to investigate Trump over the handling of top secret documents.
And there does not seem to be an obvious conflict like the one that promoted the last appointment of a special counsel to handle Trump-related investigations. The Trump Justice Department named former FBI Director Robert Mueller as special counsel to lead the investigation into potential coordination between Russia and the Trump 2016 presidential campaign.
The special counsel is Jack Smith. He was a prosecutor in the Hague in 2018, targeting people for Kosovo war crimes.
