As the mainstream media continues to insist that Joe Biden will be the 46th president of the United States, many Democrats are clamoring for a Biden administration investigation and imprisonment of Donald Trump.
However, according to a new report from NBC News on Tuesday morning, Joe Biden is unlikely to promote a criminal probe of Donald Trump even if he is ousted from the White House.
President-elect Joe Biden has privately told advisers that he doesn’t want his presidency to be consumed by investigations of his predecessor, according to five people familiar with the discussions, despite pressure from some Democrats who want inquiries into President Donald Trump, his policies and members of his administration.
Biden’s messaging in the wake of the contentious election has been heavily focused on unity after four years of increasing division, and Biden reportedly worries that a highly controversial investigation of Trump could undermine his plans for homogenization of the nation.
Biden also reportedly doesn’t want to risk making his entire presidency about Donald Trump as Democrats seek to force the 45th president into irrelevance.
The NBC report continued:
[Sources] specifically told advisers that he is wary of federal tax investigations of Trump or of challenging any orders Trump may issue granting immunity to members of his staff before he leaves office. One adviser said Biden has made it clear that he “just wants to move on.”
Another Biden adviser said, “He’s going to be more oriented toward fixing the problems and moving forward than prosecuting them.”
This is bad news for Democrats thirsting for blood after their attempts to indict or impeach Donald Trump have repeatedly failed.
The internet is awash with hopeful theories about how a Biden administration may send Donald Trump to jail, and Twitter blue checks have loudly called for harsh punishment for history’s most hated president for years, but it appears those hopes will remain unfulfilled under Biden.
