Fed Prosecutor Won’t Rule Out Charging Trump with January 6th Incitement
This could spell trouble…
President Trump appears to have resigned to the fact that he won’t be in office on January 20th.
Well, there is a weird conspiracy theory that Keith Olbermann is peddling that seems to say otherwise, but the tone o the President’s last recorded missive indicated that he’s expecting to head to Mar-a-Lago in less than two weeks.
And, when President Trump becomes a private citizen again, there are plenty of folks who’ve been lining up to take him to court for all manner of things, frivolous to tectonic.
That might even include one of the United States’ most powerful attorneys.
The top federal prosecutor in Washington, D.C., on Thursday pointedly did not rule out charging President Donald Trump in connection with inciting a riot after his supporters invaded the U.S. Capitol complex a day earlier.
Acting U.S. Attorney Michael Sherwin said the Department of Justice will consider lodging criminal charges against anyone who played a role in the riot, which for hours delayed the confirmation by Congress of Joe Biden’s election as the next president.
A reporter during a press call noted that Trump had called on his supporters at a rally before the riot to fight for him.
The statement was about as obtuse as it could get without losing any of its gravity.
Asked if he was eyeing Trump’s role in sparking the chaos, Sherwin said: “I don’t want to sound like a broken record. We’re looking at all actors here.”
“Anyone who had a role and where the evidence fits a crime,” he said.
The New York Times had previously stated that one of the White House lawyers warned the President that his remarks at the rally that preceded the storming of the Capitol could conjure some culpability.
