According to a report by ITAR on the 4th, US President-elect Biden said in an interview with CNN on Thursday that in the new US government under his leadership, he himself will not interfere with the work of the US Department of Justice. Nor will it order an investigation of certain people.
Biden pointed out that the Justice Department will “act independently” in the US government under its leadership. He said, “I will not tell them what they should or should not do. I will not let them sue this person or that person. The person I choose to lead the U.S. Department of Justice will be able to independently decide who to sue and who to not. .”
Biden admitted that because there are rumors that the current US President Trump may pardon his aides, relatives and friends before they are charged, Biden is worried about this.
In an interview, Biden said in response to related questions raised by the host, “This will definitely worry me, because it sets a precedent, which makes how other countries in the world regard us (the United States) as a legal and judicial supremacy. Principle country.” Biden pointed out that the US government under his leadership “will not adopt similar pardons.”
Earlier, CNN quoted sources as reporting that Trump and his aides discussed the possibility of pardoning his advisers, daughter Ivanka, son-in-law Jared Kushner, and others. The report pointed out that some Trump advisers believed that he could pardon himself in advance. Trump is said to be worried that he and his cronies may be prosecuted during Biden’s administration.
