J6 Probe Readies Monday Hearing on Trump's 'Criminal' Behavior

Well folks, here we go:  The moment that the liberal left has been waiting on for months and months is almost here.

On Monday, the controversial and Trump-focused January 6th select committee will be holding one of their last public hearings, likely to outline their case for a criminal referral of the former President to the Department of Justice.

The Jan. 6 select committee is preparing to unveil its most comprehensive case yet that Donald Trump attempted to subvert the transfer of presidential power to Joe Biden — first by pressuring allies at every level of government and then with the aid of a violent mob.

The panel plans to release the first components of its final report on Monday following an 18-month probe that featured explosive depositions from members of Trump’s West Wing, battles that reached the Supreme Court and access to some of the most sensitive papers held by Trump’s White House.

“I think that the evidence is there that Donald Trump committed criminal offenses in connection with his efforts to overturn the election. And viewing it as a former prosecutor, I think there’s sufficient evidence to charge the president,” panel member Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) said on Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” though he declined to comment on specific charges.

The panel is expected to urge the Justice Department to pursue at least three criminal charges against the former president: insurrection, obstruction of an official proceeding and conspiracy to defraud the United States government. The referrals to the department are included in a sub-panel report that the full committee is expected to approve on Monday.

And while the committee certainly appears ready to refer Trump to the DOJ, there is no telling whether or not the Attorney General has the gall to attempt to indict a former Commander in Chief, or what sort of cultural trouble that could cause our nation.
