The January 6th committee will be referring criminal charges to the DOJ. Hopefully, Trump will be charged with several crimes by our courts and face prison for his attempt to destroy our democracy and our Constitution.

Jamie Gangel and Katelyn Polantz of CNN wrote:The House select committee investigating January 6, 2021, is expected to announce it will refer at least three criminal charges against former President Donald Trump to the Justice Department, including insurrection, obstruction of an official proceeding and conspiracy to defraud the federal government.

The committee’s final recommendations could include additional charges proposed for Trump, according to the source. The referral recommendations will be presented at a committee meeting on Monday and the final report will provide justification from the panel’s investigation for recommending the charges.

The impact House referrals could have remains unclear because the Department of Justice special counsel investigation is already examining Trump in its extensive probe into January 6. But in addition to criminal referrals, committee Chairman Bennie Thompson told reporters that the panel could issue five to six other categories of referrals, such as ethics referrals to the House Ethics Committee, bar discipline referrals and campaign finance referrals.

The charging recommendations under consideration of obstruction of an official proceeding and conspiracy to defraud the federal government match allegations the select committee made against Trump and his elections attorney John Eastman in a previous court proceeding seeking Eastman’s emails. A judge had agreed with the House, finding it could access Eastman’s emails about his 2020 election work for Trump because the pair was likely planning to defraud the US and engaging in a conspiracy to obstruct Congress, according to that court proceeding.

The Guardian was first to report on the committee’s consideration of the charges.

Steven Cheung, a spokesman for Trump, criticized the committee in a statement as a “Kangaroo court” that held “show trials by Never Trump partisans who are a stain on this country’s history.”

Rep. Zoe Lofgren, a member of the committee, told CNN’s Jake Tapper Friday that the panel has “been very careful in crafting these recommendations and tethering them to the facts that we’ve uncovered.”

Rich wrote:So is this correct that the committee has now admitted that Trump is innocent and withdrawn their subpoena?


No, the committee withdrew the subpoena because the Congress is ending and a new one will start in a few days now.

As for proving things, it proved that Trump is guilty of many crimes, including aiding an insurrection.

Any chance you actually engage in debate of any sustenance? produce any argument to support something like the Nazis were "woke".

Yeah my spelling is well pretty poor, my typing questionable. But I do not go around saying things like the Nazi's were woke.

Your choice of words are also poor. Sustenance? Wrong word, idiot.

You might have meant 'substance', but who the hell knows given your idiocy.

BTW, are you and late the same person?

In summary, the US government and Democrats used the state authority to subpoena Trump while he is not guilty of anything.

Big government is in play. It is overreaching. This is called abuse of power. Democrats are so much rooted in anti-democracy and anti-freedom.



He hasn't gone to trial for that. And if you can't subpoena Trump, you can never get to a trial.

And if you don't have a trial, you can never hold him responsible for his abuse of power...

Seriously, you need to do better.

Why do you want to bar him from running the office while he is found not guilty of anything? It is Democrats' abuse of power.

There is only one thing illegal here is Democrats' abuse of power. They try to bar political oppenets from running. It is anti-democratic and illegal.

@Istanbuller

The only reason for the subpoena was to get him to lie under oath or take the fifth. Both work as they have cooperating witnesses( his friends) dobbing him in at every opportunity in exchange for immunity or a reduced sentence.
