It was to be expected, since on Friday the draft final report was released, which was leaked to the media. The “January 6 Committee” is expected to file motions with the Justice Department shortly to file at least three criminal charges against former President Donald Trump: “obstruction of official proceedings by the United States government,” conspiracy to defraud the government and incitement to insurrection (sedition). ) or help with it, according to NBC News.
The congressional caucus also addressed the disrespect of Trump and his entourage towards Congress. The committee’s full final report is expected to be made public later this week. He will announce the accusations not only against Trump, but also against other people. “We believe that the evidence described today by my colleagues and gathered during our hearings justifies the prosecution of former President Donald Trump, John Eastman and others for breaking the law,” said committee spokesman Rep. Jamie Ruskin, MD. The effect of Trump’s scheme was to “obstruct, influence and obstruct… the whole point of a legitimate transfer of power in the United States.”
The committee was formed in July 2021 and has spent the past 17 months investigating the attack on the US Capitol, which temporarily prevented Congress from confirming the results of the 2020 presidential election, as well as the events surrounding it.
During the Committee’s last meeting on January 6, Trump posted a post on his Truth Social account, saying he would have won the 2020 election if Twitter (banned in Russia) hadn’t blocked the New York Post article about the son of the incumbent. chief. of the White House, Hunter Biden during the electoral campaign. “Would easily change the outcome of the presidential election without even discussing all the other illegal activities they did,” Trump wrote on his account.
However, the US Department of Justice, which is already conducting a criminal investigation into Trump’s actions related to the events of January 6, is not required to consider congressional appeals, which have no legal force. However, a special commission plans to act in the hope that the lawmakers’ report could influence prosecutors’ decision-making.
Remember that during the storming of the US Capitol building by Trump supporters on January 6, 2021, five people were killed, 14 security officers were injured, and over a hundred protesters were detained by police. There have already been dozens of convictions in this case.
