Prosecutor Says Trump Still in Hot Seat Over January 6th

Hmmm…

As investigators continue to sift through the mountains of evidence behind after the events of January 6th, we are reminded that the repercussions of that fateful day are far from fading into the distance.

Hundreds of arrests have already been made, and hundreds more could be coming still.  The offenses themselves are getting heavy as well, with some now suggesting that “sedition” may come into play in the coming weeks.

And no one appears to be too big to be looked at.

“Maybe the president is culpable,” he said.

Sherwin also said there were now more than 400 cases against participants in the riot and said that if it is determined Brian Sicknick, the Capitol police officer who died, did so because he was hit with bear spray, murder charges would likely follow.

“It’s unequivocal that Trump was the magnet that brought the people to DC on 6 January,” Sherwin said. “Now the question is, is he criminally culpable for everything that happened during the siege, during the breach?

“…Based upon what we see in the public record and what we see in public statements in court, we have plenty of people – we have soccer moms from Ohio that were arrested saying, ‘Well, I did this because my president said I had to take back our house.’ That moves the needle towards that direction. Maybe the president is culpable for those actions.

Democrats have suggested that Donald Trump’s speech to the crowd ahead of the events of January 6th were an “incitement to insurrection”, but the Senate chose to acquit Trump on those charges.
