Garland to Employ Special Counsel for DOJ’s Trump Investigation

WASHINGTON, D.C. — U.S. Attorney General Merick Garland reportedly will appoint a Special Counsel to take over U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) investigations into former President Donald Trump. Lisa Gilbert, executive vice president of Public Citizen and co-chair of the Not Above the Law Coalition, issued the following statement:

“There is a mountain of evidence against Trump, and he should be prosecuted as swiftly as possible. The DOJ must act aggressively to that end. Every day we wait, Trump will attempt to turn our attention from the robust evidence outlined by the January 6th Select Committee. Those who commit crimes must be punished. Our system of justice must prevail.”
