Many people are wondering if ex-president Trump and his allies could face legal problems once Biden is inaugurated, despite people close to Biden asserting the President-Elect hopes to avoid divisive investigations into Trump. In his latest special report, MSNBC’s Chief Legal Correspondent Ari Melber highlights why that framing is problematic when the Justice Department is meant to operate independently and turn on facts, not on who is coming into office. Melber emphasizes Biden himself has said he will leave any decision to prosecute Trump and his allies up to an independent DOJ.
