Members of the nine-month-old House Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th Attack on the United States Capitol have recently said they believe there is strong evidence that then-President Donald Trump broke the law during his efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 election.⁠

“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,” committee Vice Chair Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., told CNN last week. In late March, a federal judge wrote that it was “more likely than not” that Trump had committed federal crimes in a ruling concerning a trove of sensitive emails the former president’s lawyer had attempted to prevent the committee from obtaining.⁠

But Congress can’t prosecute crimes itself; only the Department of Justice has that power. The most the committee can do is issue a criminal referral, which would essentially serve as a recommendation that the Justice Department pursue charges against Trump. Despite their confidence that the former president did commit one or more crimes, multiple recent reports suggest that the committee members are divided on whether to make a criminal referral once their investigation is complete.⁠

  1. Honestly it took this long to just decide what to do pretty much gives the answer to that question, unfortunately….

  2. Tried to overthrow the election? Kind of like the Clinton campaign’s attempt to overthrow Trump in 2016 with the Russian collusion shit

  3. Well what do you know! YAHOO finally admitting his “crimes” are alleged!! The committee won’t do anything because you can’t prosecute someone for the bullshit you make up!!!!!

  4. OMG! Just make the referral so people can move on and the doofus can pay for his crimes and most importantly never run for office again. Strip him and his family of any government funds!

  5. Like what they are doing with puppet Biden .Someone telling him what to do in his ear .The man is not fit but go ahead let him.do what he does best .Nothing that can or has helped the American people but put them in a hole.Pitful to think the GREATEST NATION IN THE WORLD HAS SUCCUMB TO THIS PITFUL PLOY.

  6. What is Benjamin Mueller doing writing an article saying covid is as dangerous as driving? My 11 year old daughter saw it. Thanks for that fool.
