Justice Department officials are discussing whether there is a need to appoint a special counsel to oversee two investigations into former President Donald Trump if he decides to run for president again in 2024, according to a new report.

Discussions about appointing a special counsel have touched on whether doing so would shield the Justice Department from claims that President Joe Biden's administration is seeking to undermine his top political rival, sources told CNN.

Trump has heavily teased that he is interested in a third campaign but has not formally declared.
