Trump Presidency Could See New Focus in Criminal Prosecutions

Philip Hilder, a former federal prosecutor and founding partner of Houston-based Hilder & Associates P.C., sees a Trump administration, possibly with Rudy Giuliani as attorney general, being heavy-handed in prosecutions, focusing on terrorism and potentially setting a tone that could keep investigations into Donald Trump and Republicans tamped down and investigations into Hillary Clinton and Democrats encouraged. “It’s not that the Justice Department has been particularly light-handed under President Obama, but it may become stricter and less open-minded under the Trump administration if it adopts the tone the candidate and Giuliani have used in the campaign,” he said.
