ASSociated Press cites “a person familiar with the matter”
An AP headline blasts, “Jan. 6 panel eyes recommending 3 criminal charges for Trump.” The preposterous “report/indictment” to which we have chosen not to provide a link, begins with these words: “The House panel investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol is considering recommending the Justice Department pursue an unprecedented criminal charge of insurrection and two other counts against former President Donald Trump.”
Besides insurrection — an uprising aiming to overthrow the government — the panel is also considering recommending prosecutors pursue charges for obstructing an official proceeding and conspiracy to defraud the United States, “a person familiar with the matter,” told the AP. The committee’s deliberations were continuing late Friday, and no decisions were formalized on which specific charges the committee would refer to the Justice Department. (Notice the “person” remains unnamed.) The panel is set to meet Monday afternoon when recommendation will be made public.
This set-up has a single intent…marginalizing Donald Trump, and painting his loyalists with the same broad bush, desiring to criminalize not only the former president, but strike fear in the hearts of his broad base of conservative supporters, foolishly confusing conservatives with weak-kneed liberals.
The Department of Justice is headed by U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland, a radical leftist, who Barack Obama tried, but failed, to put on the U.S. Supreme Court, nominating him on March 16, 2016. Despite being pushed by former Arizona Republicrat Sen. Jeff Flake, the Senate did not consider the nomination, which expired on January 3, 2017. Flake, who was only able to garner an 18% approval rating, did not run for reelection. Joe Biden appropriately rewarded him by appointing him Ambassador to Turkey.
