Criminal Charges Against Trump?

Question

Since the beginning of his presidency (and even before), it has been speculated by some that Donald Trump may have engaged in illegal behaviors in his personal and public life. These alleged crimes include, among other things, inciting the Capitol insurrection of January 2021, engaging in a corrupt quid pro quo with Ukraine, and committing tax fraud.

Will federal criminal charges be levied against Donald Trump within a month of the end of his presidency?

This question will resolve positively if, by February 20, 2021 at 12:00 PM, at least two credible sources report that Trump has been charged with federal crime(s).

This question will resolve negatively if the above does not occur, but Donald Trump ceases to be president on January 20, 2021 at 12:00 PM.

This question will resolve ambiguously if Donald Trump’s presidency does not end at 12:00 PM on January 20, 2021 as expected, thus rendering the resolution date of February 20 inaccurate.
