DOJ’s ’60-Day Rule’ Might Prevent Trump Charges Before Midterms

At a glance

  • If normal protocols hold, former President Trump won’t be charged soon because prosecutors missed the unofficial window to press charges 60 days before the election.
  • The 60-day rule is not an official tradition, but one that the DOJ typically abides by so as to avoid impacting voters’ decisions.
  • There is some question as to whether the rule should apply to President Trump given that he is not on the ballot in November.
