January 6 Committee Recommends Trump Face
Criminal Charges

Original Article

Posted By: Dreadnought, 12/19/2022 2:50:50 PM

The January 6 committee on Monday referred former president Donald Trump to the Department of Justice for prosecution on four charges related to his conduct leading up to and during the riot that occurred in the Capitol in the wake of his defeat in the 2020 presidential election. The referrals include obstruction of an official proceeding, conspiracy to defraud the U.S., making a false statement, and inciting an insurrection, the last of which could disqualify Trump from holding public office in the future. Trump attempted to “disrupt the peaceful transition of power” in a grave betrayal of duty as outlined in the “take care” clause of the Constitution and in a “crime

An "impeachment trial," is NOT an impeachment trial if the presiding officer is NOT the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. They've all been show trials.

They probably had to literally brush the dust off these charges since I have no doubt they were written well before the committee actually began its “work”.

I could not listen to this Hollywood-produced spectacle very long. I watched as Nixon was smeared forever worldwide and any good he did as President buried under accusations for things he never did. We said history would recalibrate things and the truth would prevail. We watched the Clintons get away with everything. We said history would not be kind to them. Unfortunately, the history books, PBS documentaries and movies are made by Democrats and worse. Now this and I can barely take all the good Trump did being ignored by the Church and self-serving Republican Party establishment barely defending him.

They hate Trump more than they love/respect the rule of law. The very structure of this committee was of that of an inquisition considering, eg, their denial of the accused’s right to be heard in a fair and impartial manner. It’s been a very destructive episode.

My understanding is the "committee" wasn't legally formed since the Republicans weren't allowed to select their own representatives. So whatever they recommend isn't valid. But you can be sure the DOJ won't care about that and will go ahead and prosecute anyway. Welcome to the USSA.

In a real trial, not a dog-and-pony-show-trial like what Congress has been putting on, will allow President Trump to call witnesses and introduce evidence. It is going to make the Demon-Rats look like the petty, evil, mentally ill people that they all are!!!!! I honestly won't be shocked if the Dept of Justice "declines" to prosecute -- thus covering the Demon-Rat's rear ends. The Demon_Rats can still claim to their brain-dead base voters that they tried to bring Trump to justice, wah, wah, wah!!!

Although I knew this was coming it still infuriates me because these no good degenerates know these are bogus charges. This is nothing but the worst kind of political persecution. Their motivation is pretty clear, dirty up Trump so he cannot run. They know they cannot beat his list of accomplishments so the only strategy is to get rid of him. I guess we should be thankful they did not JFK him, but nothing they do would surprise me. I do hope President Trump’s base makes it clear to these dishonest fools that they are treading on very thin ice. It’s time someone put the fear of the Lord into them. We cannot just continue to accept their lawlessness without confronting them or their illegal behavior will never end.

On January 6th 2021, masked agitators appeared on the Capitol grounds with weaponry, gas masks, and other expensive gear at about the same time a pipe bomb was discovered in a nearby RNC building. The ensuing chaos of that day was blamed on Donald Trump and his supporters. The violence was called an "insurrection," and was taken so seriously by federal law enforcement, some may still be on the run. But something far more irresponsible, and far more dangerous to Americans took place a couple of weeks later. We can hope the new House will get some answers. While Dems try to blame Trump, they're oddly disinterested in the far more dangerous events set in motion by our current president. On January 20, 2021, Joe Biden's first day in office, the American people heard him invite illegal aliens from around the world to come to the US "to be heard." His invitation to enter the United States illegally has led to 5 million new illegal alien arrivals so far, already released into our country, with no end in sight. We do not know who these people are, nor do we know the criminal backgrounds of everyone allowed into our country. The same administration and MSM incensed over Americans wandering inside the Capitol building on January 6, (some after being waived in by police) doesn't consider the chaos, crime, drugs and human trafficking Biden's "invitation" has brought into our country to be worth discussing. Which tells us what happens to Americans isn't a cause for concern.

Billionaire Elon Musk shared his thoughts Tuesday night on the $1.7 trillion omnibus spending bill presented by Congress. The Twitter chief put up a poll up on the social media site asking people if the bill should be approved and offered his own thoughts on it. The poll asked: "Should Congress approve the $1.7 trillion omnibus spending bill?" As of early Wednesday morning, more than 1.6 million Twitter users voted and 75.4% said "no," while 24.6% said "yes." Musk shared his own opinion on the matter writing, "I’m in favor of a small spending bill to keep things running, but common sense suggests that it be the least amount required through the holidays."

The Democratic-led House Ways and Means Committee released a report on former President Donald Trump's taxes Tuesday after voting to make public six years' worth of the former president's tax returns, the culmination of a years-long quest from House Democrats to obtain the former president's taxes. The panel approved a motion on a party-line vote to release the materials to the House, clearing the way for Trump's tax returns to be released publicly within a matter of days. The vote was approved with all Democrats voting in favor and all Republicans voting no. Shortly after the vote, the committee released a report on the failures of the presidential audit program along

Twitter worked with the Pentagon to promote fake accounts in the Middle East which praised U.S. policy, it has emerged - despite the social media company insisting that it made 'concerted efforts' to 'detect and thwart government-backed platform manipulation'. The collusion spanned at least four years, from 2017 to 2020, and saw top Twitter executives liaise with military intelligence on 'a covert online PsyOp campaign' - promoting accounts including one that claimed the U.S. drone bombings in Yemen killed only terrorists. The revelations were made by Lee Fang, who on Tuesday published the eighth installment of what is termed the Twitter Files.

It would be his first foreign trip since the Russian invasion in February. Mr Zelensky could also address Congress, unnamed officials told US media. There is no official confirmation of the visit or the plans. A visit would be fraught with security concerns - meaning plans could likely change at short notice.

They said that they just provided information to Twitter and that whatever Twitter did with it was their own business. But it gets worse.

The question in the title needs, I believe, critical examination. Why DOES the Left hate Trump so much? The answer, as usual, can largely be found by analyzing history. But first. Do they hate him because the average price of a gallon of gas in his administration was far lower than under Biden? Is it because inflation was low (around 2%) and trending downward? Is it that the USA was energy independent and didn’t need to beg our enemies for oil, deplete our strategic oil reserve or sell it to China? Is it because black and Hispanic unemployment was lower than at any time in history?

Harvard Law School Professor Alan Dershowitz denounced the Jan. 6 committee as a “kangaroo court” that produced a worthless report that should be “thrown in the wastebasket.” In an interview Monday evening on Newsmax TV, the eminent lawyer said that “not only is [the Justice Department] not obligated to do anything, it is obligated not to do anything” in response to the panel’s recommendations Monday that former President Donald Trump be prosecuted.

Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) on Tuesday joined 13 Republicans who vowed to tank any priorities of GOP senators who vote for the 4,155 page omnibus bill that was negotiated with Democrats before a new Republican majority could take control of the House. Reps. Chip Roy (R-TX), Matt Gaetz (R-FL), Scott Perry (R-PA), and Andy Biggs (R-AZ), along with nine other conservatives House members, signed a letter Tuesday promising to block any priorities of the Republican senators who rushed to support the omnibus deal with Democrats just days before Congress leaves town for Christmas.

Gaetz, one of five outspoken opponents of McCarthy, told Charlie Kirk in an interview he would rather wait weeks and have “sort of a turbulent takeoff” than have McCarthy be speaker. “I’m saying we could see the cherry blossoms bloom and not have a speaker.
