Biden's DOJ to pursue federal prosecution of Donald Trump even if he wins presidency

Officials in the Department of Justice plan to continue pursuing criminal cases against former President Donald Trump past Election Day even if he wins. If Trump becomes president-elect, the outgoing, lame duck DOJ intends to continue prosecuting him until Inauguration Day.

Officials are operating under the assumption that DOJ rules against charging or prosecuting a sitting president would not be applicable until Inauguration Day in January.

"Senior law enforcement officials have long viewed the two federal indictments against Trump — the 45th president and the presumptive Republican nominee in this year’s election — as operating with potential time constraints.

That’s because of long-standing Justice Department policy that officials cannot criminally charge a sitting president," According to the Washington Post.
