Will Jan. 6 Panel's Findings Result In Criminal Charges Against Trump?

Conservative political activist George Conway says the Department of Justice should be confident it can file criminal cases resulting from evidence shared Thursday by the House Committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol. “This case could be tried, we could do that,” Conway told CNN. “In fact, I think it’s going to be hard for them not to do it after seeing all this evidence.” The committee launched its case against former President Trump over prime-time television Thursday, aimed at sharing evidence with the public, The HIll reports. Trump’s claims that the 2020 presidential election was stolen from him due to voter fraud led directly to the violence of Jan. 6, according to the committee’s testimony.

“All Americans should keep this fact in mind: On the morning of Jan. 6, President Trump’s intention was to remain President of the United States despite the lawful outcome of the 2020 election and in violation of his Constitutional obligation to relinquish power,” said committee vice chair Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY). Lawyer Conway said evidence presented by the committee significantly outweighed any presented by Trump and his allies. He said, "There’s a reason why Donald Trump has always avoided being cross examined under oath as much as possible, why he didn’t do it in the Mueller investigation: he’s got nothing to say, and if he ever tried to testify in his own defense at a trial, he’d get creamed.”
