Ty Cobb, a former White House lawyer for Donald Trump, told CNN another federal indictment is imminent in the ongoing investigation into efforts to overturn the 2020 election. The probe, led by special counsel Jack Smith, has been in its final stages for some time, with investigators focusing on key events and potential crimes.

Cobb said, “I believe it’s about to happen. I think the January 6th case, which really encompasses all the attempts to cling to power and prevent the peaceful transfer of government, has been a very important matter to the special prosecutor.” He added that while there are still some “difficult decisions” to be made, he believes the investigators are ready to proceed.

The investigation has been sprawling, with over a dozen potential targets and at least half a dozen potential crimes. It remains unclear whether all charges will be brought at once or in phases. 

Cobb said, “Trump could well end up being a defendant in this case, along with several other co-defendants. He could be listed as an unindicted co-conspirator. He could be omitted entirely…They could continue to investigate and later bring charges…I think they want to proceed.”

Cobb also noted the Georgia voter case, led by Atlanta DA Fani Willis, which is expected to result in an indictment soon. He added that Jack Smith’s cases would likely not benefit from a local Georgia Georgia prosecutor examining defendants who are also key to the federal case.

Regarding the Mar-a-Lago classified documents case, Cobb predicted, “The feds will be moving quickly…decisively. And it will have been a well-thought-out case, just like the Mar-a-Lago case turned out to be an almost flawless indictment. I think you’ll see the same quality of work in the January 6th area.” Cobb doubts Trump will be successful in obtaining the delay he has requested.

Light Wave commentary

These developments in the ongoing investigations surrounding former President Trump are significant. If Cobb’s predictions are accurate, charges will soon be brought against Trump and other key players involved in the alleged attempts to overturn the 2020 election. The complexity of these cases and the potential for procedural delays, however, mean that the timeline remains uncertain. No doubt the cases will have major ramifications on the 2024 national elections.
