Ex-Attorney General Eric Holder Worries Trump Cases May Not Be Resolved Before Election. He’s Also Concerned About Supreme Court Ruling on Immunity.

By Allan Lengel

Former Attorney General Eric Holder Jr. expressed concern Friday about the delays in Donald Trump’s criminal trials and how the U.S. Supreme Court will rule on presidential immunity.

“Clearly the Justice Department could have and should have brought those indictments sooner,” Holder, 73, said in an interview on HBO’s “Real Time With Bill Maher.”

“The possibility exists that all four of these cases for a variety of reasons may not get resolved before the election, depriving the American people of a piece of information or pieces of information that they need to have in order to make a calculated decision who should be the next president of the United States,” Holder said.

Holder, who served under President Obama, remarked that the legal challenges against Fulton County Prosecutor Fani Willis case are “all about delay,” adding, “that’s the primary goal.”

But he said he hasn’t given up on Trump being prosecuted before the November election.

“I still have hope about the January 6th trial in DC,” Holder said. “I think with Judge Chutkan and Jack Smith, I think you’ve got people there who have the ability, assuming the Supreme Court allows it to happen, because I’m worried about them.”
