Joe Biden's Department of Justice on Tuesday officially indicted his chief political opponent -- Donald John Trump -- in what can only be described as the most brazen act of election interference in US history.

From CNBC:
Former President Donald Trump was criminally charged Tuesday in connection with his efforts to reverse his loss to President Joe Biden in 2020.

The charges mark the unprecedented third criminal indictment against the former president since he launched his latest bid for the 2024 Republican nomination. No other U.S. president, current or former, has ever faced criminal charges.

The election probe was led by [Attorney General Merrick Garland-appointed] special counsel Jack Smith, who also oversaw a separate investigation into Trump's retention of classified documents at his resort home Mar-a-Lago after leaving the White House in 2021. Trump, in June, was charged with 37 counts related to his alleged efforts to conceal those records from the government. He received additional charges in the case last week, stemming from an alleged effort to delete surveillance footage from the Palm Beach club.

Trump has pleaded not guilty in that case, which is set to go to trial in May.
"Trump has been charged with four counts: conspiracy to defraud the United States 'by using dishonesty, fraud and deceit to obstruct the nation's process of collecting, counting, and certifying the results of the presidential election'; conspiracy to impede the Jan. 6 congressional proceeding; a conspiracy against the right to vote and to have that vote counted; and obstruction of, and attempt to obstruct and impede, the certification of the electoral vote.," NBC News reports.

The case was assigned to Trump-hating Obama-appointed DC district judge Tanya Chutkan, prompting Julie Kelly to exclaim, "Trump is doomed."

Trump responded to the indictment in a statement on Truth Social:

Garland attempted to distance himself from his political persecution after news of the indictment came out.
