J6 Committee Suggests 4 Criminal Charges for Donald J. Trump

Perhaps we knew all along that this was coming, particularly after the Democrats in charge of the January 6th select committee refused to allow several Republicans to join in their work, but it is still a monumental moment in American history.

For the first time ever, a former President is being criminally referred to the Department of Justice by members of Congress.

After investigating for more than a year, the House committee probing the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol on Monday culminated its sweeping investigation by announcing it would make multiple criminal referrals to the Department of Justice against former President Donald Trump on multiple charges related to his actions surrounding riot at the Capitol.

Meeting for its final meeting on Monday to present a summation of the evidence it has gathered over the past year, committee member Rep. Jamie Raskin said the panel believes that “the evidence described … today and assembled throughout our hearings warrants” criminal referrals on at least four charges.

And just what are these charges?

The charges include obstruction of an official proceeding, conspiracy to defraud the United States, conspiracy to make a false statement, and insurrection.

The news, while not entirely unexpected, is without precedent in American history, and will be seen by many as an attempt to defame Donald Trump ahead of the 2024 election.

Republicans have long suggested that the work of the committee was politically-motivated, and there is little doubt that this sentiment will be continuing to grow among the GOP.
