January 6 Committee recommends Donald Trump for criminal prosecution

| December 20, 2022

The January 6 Committee voted to refer Donald Trump for prosecution. One of the referrals described Donald Trump as inciting, assisting, or aiding an insurrection. Other referrals describe Donald Trump as making a false statement as well as conspiracy to defraud the government. The J6 Committee feels that they have enough evidence to support their claim that Donald Trump wanted to disrupt the peaceful transfer of power.

From Fox News:

In what is expected to be its final meeting on Monday, the House Select Committee to Investigate January 6 said it will formally ask the DOJ to pursue charges after a nearly 18-month probe into the former president’s involvement in the activities that lead to the Capitol breach on January 6, 2021.

The committee said on Monday that it believes it has significant evidence that former President Trump intended to disrupt the peaceful transition of power, and believes that the DOJ can likely elicit testimony relevant to an investigation under a federal statute that bans rebellion against the U.S. government.

That statute says anyone who “incites” or “gives aid or comfort” in any “rebellion or insurrection against the authority of the United States,” cannot hold public office.

The committee’s unprecedented criminal referral holds no official legal weight, and a final determination in whether to pursue the charges will be up to Attorney General Merrick Garland and the Justice Department.

The committee also referred several GOP House lawmakers Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, Andy Biggs, R-Ariz., and Scott Perry, R-Pa., to the House Ethics Committee for not complying with subpoenas.

A spokesperson for Jordan responded to the committee’s referral in statement to Fox News: “This is just another partisan and political stunt made by a Select Committee that knowingly altered evidence, blocked minority representation on a Committee for the first time in the history of the U.S. House of Representatives, and failed to respond to Mr. Jordan’s numerous letters and concerns surrounding the politicization and legitimacy of the Committee’s work.”

Over its 18-month tenure, the committee obtained access to tens of thousands of documents, the committee has conducted nearly 1,000 interviews related to the Capitol protests.

Nice beginner’s kit.

Not a proper pistol cartridge in the lot. (snicker) HMS, JMB (HBHN), weeps.


Metric ammo….real ammo is measured in inches…
.223, .308, .44, .50 etc.


Good day at the range.

I am not a Trump fan, pretty sure I made that clear previously.

That said the incitation prosecution seems unlikely to succeed…he didn’t say let’s go to the Capitol building, invade it and take over…he said let’s remain peaceful. Along with a shit ton of other stuff to be sure…but reasonable doubt as to incitation exists in that commentary to be sure.

If we’re going to start prosecuting false statements I’m betting 90% of DC could be behind bars in short order.

It’s all about going the Joseph Goebbels way on telling the low information voters who watch cnn, msnbs and the other alphabet news stations the same thing over and over so they believe the story. Their goal is to keep President Trump from running again..

Slow Joe

Why don’t you like President Trump?

Do you mean as a President (very important) or as a person (which I don’t give a flying fuck about)

Do you have list of specific, valid, grievances?


…he said let’s remain peaceful.

The question is when he said it, and what else he said.

If I pick a fight with someone, kick then in the shins, and then realize I’m about to lose that fight and say, “Hey, I don’t wanna fight!”, does that absolve me of starting it with the intention of fighting? I certainly don’t think so.

In terms of Trump’s tweet that said let’s be peaceful, that was at 2:38pm, well after most of the violence. And to my second point, if there’s evidence that he or others were planning to encourage enough violence or chaos to interrupt the certification of the votes, then that carriers more weight than tweets for peace after the fact, too.

At the end of the day, I hope this goes wherever the facts are – I’m content with that.


I’d be content with going wherever the facts are as well. But this investigation has never been about facts. Adam Schiff’s presence on this panel is proof of that.


Ol Poe thinks perhaps it’s not too smart a move for Dems to take that leap and establish the legal precedent of criminally prosecuting an ex-president when they have an obviously criminally corrupt president serving.

Ya think maybe, LC? 🙄 

USMC Steve



Perhaps if he added “in Minecraft” to his TweetZ?


Let’s not forget that Trump would more than likely be tried in DC where Jesus would be convicted if he were a Republican.


Jesus would be convicted for being religious there.


And so the Uniparty Dog and Pony Show continues. Trump was not the true target of all of this. We, The People are. He was just in the way. Khrushchev grins.



Without a shred of real evidence. They are just repeating the lie over and over hoping that people will believe it.

The Lars-level “intellects” have full buy in, of course.

When can we expect indictments for senior members of the Justice Department for interfering with a federal election?


Hell freezing over.


I’ll take politically-motivated bullsh*t for $1000, Alex!


Discovery will be epic, if it ever sees the light of day!


And therein lies the reason why no prosecution will ever happen: The Dems can’t stand for the reality of Jan 6 to ever see the light of day nor the eyes and ears of a change of venue jury.

Discovery will reveal the huge Democrat-engineered conspiracy that Jan 6 was from start to finish.

And yeah, Lars and LC, come on in here and call ol’ Poe a conspiracy theorist. Based on the rate your conspiracy theories are being revealed to be fact-based and actual, maybe TAH should have some CONSPIRACY THEORIST shoulder tabs made up for the troops here that you two love to smugly disparage.


I think the idea was to get an indictment, and that ALONE would disqualify Trump from running for office. There is NO WAY they want a trial. The DOJ would have to prove its case with evidence not hearsay, and the Defense would have a chance to call witnesses, rebuttal witness, and demand ALL and I mean ALL video footage. The prosecution witness would have to include the FBI operatives/planners, their
communications, their handlers, etc. No way that information ever sees the light of day.
I want the Trump defense team to pull back the curtain of DOJ/FBI’s corruption on 1/6. Subpoena Pelosi, Schiff and whole treasonous lot.
Elon/#TwitterFiles has already shown us actual collusion for 2016 & 2020. Meanwhile, DeSantis motors on in relative obscurity and right into the White House.


I think you are overlooking that the charges will be filed in DC. There is no doubt a DC jury would convict him, just like the juries that convicted every J6 defendant tried so far, including those who never even entered the Capitol. 95% of DC voters voted for Hillary; that is your jury pool.


Tell me, Counselor, would it be possible to use those obviously biased convictions and the District’s one-sided voting records for Trump’s legal team to make a strong request for a change of venue?


Sure, but it will be denied. The DC judges are predominantly of the same ilk as Emmett Sullivan.


Exactly. Just look at the example how jackasses like Pelosi crow about how PDT was impeached not once, but twice. No need to bring up the not convicted part. The brain dead masses will just focus on the “impeached” part.

IMO said brain-dead masses just recite “*DUUUUUHHHHHH*, Trump bad, Orange man Bad, media tell me so.” and go on mulling like cattle in a pasture.


Trump won.


The government wants to help you understand.

All he’ll do is screech with his UC Berzerkely Kool-aid blowing out of his mouth nose, ears and ass!


Is anybody really surprised? This was the intended outcome of the committee from the get-go. There was no “investigation.”


Trump only told people in public not to go to the Capitol and local Democrat politicians refused to request the NG troops he wanted to have on-hand. Yeah, looks guilty alright. /sarc


A big, heapin’, steamin’ pile of horse dung.

IMHO that goes to further prove just what filthy whorehouses Washington DC and the mainstream news media truly are, filthier than a third world abortion clinic!

Somehow, it seems just a mite shortsighted to ol’ Poe for political criminals to be criminalizing politics… 🙄 


Now we all know why the Progs and MSM have been ranting the J6 riot is an insurrection for those past 11 months.


Orange man bad!


USMC Steve

So, given that there was no factual evidence that he had anything to do with this fake riot, after they try to jail him and fail, can he sue the shit out of them for it?


Could be good reading?
