Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Huffpost.com: “Eric Holder Predicts Where Trump Is Likely To Face 1st Criminal Charges Over Election”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Former Attorney General Eric Holder said Thursday that Donald Trump will likely face criminal charges as a result of the Justice Department’s investigation into his actions leading up to the Jan. 6, 2021, insurrection.

But Holder, who served under President Barack Obama, said state charges are likely to precede any federal action. In an interview with SiriusXM’s “Urban View,” Holder said he first expects Trump to be charged in a probe by the state of Georgia looking into his efforts to overturn Joe Biden’s win there, including Trump’s scheme to form slate of false electors, according to CNBC.

Holder added that the state investigation is more straightforward, pointing to Trump’s infamous call to Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger on Jan. 2, 2021, asking him to “find 11,780 votes.”

“My eyes are on Fulton County first. Look at the Justice Department in 2023,” Holder told the radio show.

Holder said the Justice Department’s criminal charges will likely come after the midterms given the long-standing precedent not to announce criminal charges during an election year.
