How the DOJ Can Wriggle Out of This One
White Collar Defense and Investigations attorney Robert Katzberg authored an article in Slate magazine analyzing the U.S. Department of Justice's (DOJ) potential path ahead regarding the discovery of classified documents at former President Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago residence. Mr. Katzberg comments that federal courtroom veterans were scratching their heads at the lack of an indictment against Trump until the news of the discovery of classified documents at current President Joe Biden's Delaware office emerged. In light of that discovery, he says the DOJ appears to have three options moving forward: decline any prosecution related to Mar-a-Lago, prosecute Trump for both unlawful possession of classified materials and obstruction of justice, or indict Trump for obstruction of justice only. The article goes on to explain why he prefers the third option.
