(FamilyConservationPAC.com) – On Tuesday, the former president of the United States, Donald Trump, will appear at the Wilkie D. Ferguson Jr. U.S. Courthouse in Miami, Florida, to surrender and be charged with mishandling secret documents.
Many specifics were still ambiguous on the eve of Trump’s federal arrest.
For instance, it was unclear whether he would be represented by a lawyer in court or even if he would be placed in handcuffs and have to stand for a mug photo.
But it is evident that his arrest will rank among the most important events in American history.
It would either signal the establishment of the rule of law or the nation’s descent into a “banana republic.”

In a departure from protocol, Attorney General Merrick Garland named a special counsel to handle the Trump documents case and charges connected to his alleged involvement in the Capitol disturbance on January 6, 2021.
Since the Department of Justice still answers to the White House in the executive chain of command, more independence is required when a special counsel is appointed to look into an incumbent president.
However, Garland utilized the enormous authority of the special counsel—who is nearly always anticipated to file charges—to look into and punish not only a former president but also the front-runner in the subsequent election.
Federal authorities searched Trump’s home at Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach County as part of that inquiry. Treating a former president like an ordinary criminal over documents was another bold move.
In the months that have passed, Americans have learned that President Joe Biden himself was discovered to have transported numerous sensitive materials to his home and office.
However, before Trump, he lacked the authority as a vice president to have sensitive materials in his home or garage.

Likewise, it was discovered that Mike Pence, a former vice president, had sensitive documents in his house. Of course, the Department of Justice chose not to charge Hillary Clinton in 2016 for improperly handling sensitive information.
Another special counsel probe also found that the Department of Justice had started an investigation into Trump in 2016 based on political motivations and misinformation from the Clinton campaign.
“Rules on classified material “must be enforced,” according to Special Counsel Jack Smith, whose team of prosecutors will oversee Monday’s criminal hearings. He also stated, “We have one set of laws in this country.”

But at least half of the population finds it hard to accept that. The indictment against Trump is solid, according to even those legal specialists who support him. Still, many people think charges shouldn’t have been brought.
Smith’s track record with political cases is similarly shaky. Former Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell’s (R) conviction was reversed on appeal, and former Sen. John Edwards’ (D) conviction was not upheld by a jury in North Carolina.
Smith desires a 21-day trial for Trump. However, there are so many new legal and constitutional questions in this case that it might take months or years, similar to the corruption trial of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
However, this incident will undoubtedly impact the 2024 presidential race. It is viewed as a chance for Trump’s opponents in both parties and a focal point for those who still support him.
Many people do not care about the specifics of the indictment. They know it’s a political scheme by Biden and the weaponized branches of government to stop President Trump from winning back the oval office.

It concerns whether the United States continues functioning as a constitutional republic where the people make their own decisions.
