Finally, Some Confirmation

The Washington Post reported tonight:

The Justice Department is investigating President D____ T____โ€™s actions as part of its criminal probe of efforts to overturn the 2020 election results, according to four people familiar with the matter.

Prosecutors who are questioning witnesses before a grand jury โ€” including two top aides to Vice President Mike Pence โ€” have asked in recent days about conversations with T____, his lawyers, and others in his inner circle who sought to substitute T____ allies for certified electors from some states Joe Biden won, according to two people familiar with the matter. Both spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss an ongoing investigation.

The prosecutors have asked hours of detailed questions about meetings T____ led in December 2020 and January 2021; his pressure campaign on Pence to overturn the election; and what instructions T____ gave his lawyers and advisers about fake electors and sending electors back to the states, the people said. Some of the questions focused directly on the extent of T____โ€™s involvement in the fake-elector effort led by his outside lawyers,ย including John Eastman and Rudy Giuliani, these people said.

In addition, Justice Department investigators in April received phone records of key officials and aides in the T____ administration, including his former chief of staff, Mark Meadows, according to two people familiar with the matter. That effort isย another indicator of how expansive the Jan. 6 probe had become, well before theย high-profile, televised House hearings in June and Julyย on the subject….

There are two principal tracks of the investigation that could ultimately lead to additional scrutiny of T____, two people familiar with the situation said, also speaking on the condition of anonymity to discuss an ongoing investigation.

The first centers on seditious conspiracy and conspiracy to obstruct a government proceeding, the type of charges already filed against individuals who stormed the Capitol on Jan. 6 and on two leaders of far-right groups, Stewart Rhodesย and Henry โ€œEnriqueโ€ Tarrio, who did not breach the Capitol but were allegedly involved in planning the dayโ€™s events.

The second involves potential fraud associated with the false-electors scheme or with pressure T____ and his allies allegedly put on the Justice Department and others to falsely claim that the election was rigged and votes were fraudulently cast….
