The walls are closing in on former President Donald Trump and it's now "inevitable" that Attorney General Merrick Garland will indict him, legal experts told Jim Braude on Greater Boston.

The January 6 Select Committee voted Thursday to subpoena Trump for his involvement in the Capitol insurrection and Trump is also being investigated for keeping sensitive government documents at Mar-a-Lago.

With those two issues piling up, Harvard Professor Emeritus Larry Tribe said Garland has no choice but to indict Trump.

"Now it's inevitable," Tribe said, "The country is going to begin to see through the curtain. It's wearing a little bit thin."

With the subpoena, Tribe said Trump will look horrible if he doesn't show up in court, and former Federal Judge Nancy Gertner said issuing the subpoena was the committee's way of giving Trump a chance to explain himself. "I think he's going to litigate this 'til kingdom come."

Thursday's select committee hearing revealed that Trump and his allies planned to announce victory in the 2020 election far before the results were in. Witnesses also said Trump acknowledged privately that he had lost.

Speaking about the insurrection, Gertner said the select committee findings show that "Trump's fingerprints are all over this."
