Jan. 6th committee has enough evidence to refer Trump for criminal charges.

well this isn't shocking at all..............
three words come to mind. I will let you guess what they are....LOL.


“It’s absolutely clear that what President Trump was doing, what a number of people around him were doing, that they knew it was unlawful. They did it anyway,” Cheney told CNN’s Jake Tapper on “State of the Union.”

I think what we have seen is a massive and well organized and well-planned effort that used multiple tools to try to overturn an election,” Cheney said.
Among other elements, she cited details from a recent plea agreement from a leader of the far-right Proud Boys, Charles Donohoe, who admitted to conspiring to help organize an attack on Congress by Trump supporters and acknowledged the intention to stop the Electoral College proceedings.


It was an insurrection:




Cheney said that the evidence showed that those involved in planning the events of Jan. 6 “knew that they were going to attempt to use violence to stop the transfer of power.”
“That is the definition of an insurrection,” she said.
She said the panel has a “tremendous amount of testimony and documents that I think very, very clearly demonstrate the extent of the planning and the organization and the objective.”
That objective was “to try to stop the kind of electoral votes, to try to interfere with that official proceeding,” she added.

Trump will never, ever see the jail cell he so richly deserves.

But at least he'll spend the rest of his pathetic life struggling to stay out of that cell.

I agree with this logic;

“Members of the committee are unsure of whether a criminal referral is necessary, the Times reported: The DOJ is already conducting a wide-ranging investigation into the Capitol riot and can bring charges without an explicit referral from lawmakers, and a referral could be viewed as a partisan move by the panel, which is made up of seven Democrats and two Republicans.”

The January 6 Committee giving over information/evidence obtained to DOJ, sans any specific recommendations for charges, makes sense.

Ridiculous.....nobody in the Trump administration or Republican Party were planning on using violence to stop the transfer of power. It's simply more hype to keep the lemmings interest peaked in this sham of a committee, that's all, nothing else.......we are well rehearsed in the tactics of these kind of antics.....seen it before, been there, done it, done the dew.

Assuming the rest of the committee agrees, why wait. Are they saving what they have until October to try and sway the November elections. As all of the committee are essentially democrats with the hope of this referral might swing the election results.

LOL Many in the "Republican" Party were planners of the Insurrection Against the United States of America on January 6th, 2021. Haven't you seen the uncovered text messages among them? One even from the wife of a Supreme Court Justice!!!!!????? You really need to get better news, or stop lying. :rolleyes:

Nobody is attempting to justify the 6th.....but good gawd, get off the bandwagon, it was not a conspired attempt to overthrow the US government. But we understand, what the hell is the left going to run on come November.....nothing, absolutely nothing......so they got the Committee to tell them what to think.....and here's the latest. We sit back and watch.....these are so called intelligent people, yet they fall for the same ole propaganda again and again and again.....damn they simply cannot think for themselves, lol.

Hmm ok... so do you believe the big lie that there was widespread voter fraud? Or did you fall for that propaganda?
