While all of the attention is rightly focused on the circus that is unfolding in Manhattan as Trump is about to be arraigned and his indictment unsealed, the ruling by the federal appeals court is a reminder that the Department of Justice continues to grind away in their investigation of Trump for the 1/6 attempted coup, and for the former president’s theft of classified documents.
