If there was any validity whatsoever to any of the claims made recently by the Jan. 6 House Select Committee then Donald Trump would already be behind bars.
But since there isn’t, he’s not.
Liberal obsession with “democracy” and “misinformation” and all the buzzwords of today would immediately compel the Justice Department to file charges against the Former President since, according to the committee, he broke multiple laws in an effort to “overturn the 2020 election.”
Lest we forget, the United States is currently aiding and abetting a war in Ukraine that to liberals symbolizes the overarching war against democracy. If Democrats are literally willing to wage war for “democracy” then putting Donald Trump behind bars is a small price to pay.
Thus underlying the utter phoniness, the hypocrisy, the fraudulency behind both the Jan. 6 witch hunt committee and the fight to save “democracy” — as if Democrats have any understanding of the concept.
Still, the House Select Committee is now inching closer to recommending criminal charges against Trump based on their most recent findings.
In a brief filed Wednesday in response to a lawsuit brought by John Eastman, a Trump-linked conservative lawyer, the committee talks of evidence showing that Trump may have engaged in a criminal conspiracy to defraud the United States, illegally impeding Congress’s counting of electoral votes, and lying to the public.
“As discussed in the Background section above, evidence and information available to the Committee establishes a good-faith belief that Mr. Trump and others may have engaged in criminal and/or fraudulent acts, and that Plaintiff’s legal assistance was used in furtherance of those activities,” the committee wrote in the filing to a California federal court.

The committee cited three key legal violations Trump and his allies, including Eastman, may have committed.
The first was a criminal conspiracy to defraud the U.S. by “interfering with the election certification process, disseminating false information about election fraud, and pressuring state officials to alter state election results and federal officials to assist in that effort.” The second was common law fraud in Washington, D.C., which involves the intentional false representation of fact. The briefing presented documents showing false statements Trump made about the election to the public and to a slew of officials.
The third was Trump’s endeavor to hinder the congressional certification of the 2020 election. The committee accused Trump of illegally requesting then-Vice President Mike Pence to refuse to count the electoral votes and attempting to alter the certification process in several states in order to undermine the certification process.
1. In what way did Donald Trump interfere with the election certification process in any state on any level? The President merely highlighted significant examples of obvious voter fraud i.e. counties who’s voter turnout was higher than the population. This is a completely legitimate practice done by many candidates in the past.
2. False representation on fact? Isn’t that what the entire House Select Committee is based on given their propensity to take account of all anti-Trump propaganda without even peaking at the other side? The Former President did not in fact present false statements to the public. Again, he highlighted credible evidence of voter fraud which the voting public has every right to know about.
See, the problem is that Democrats are conniving Machiavellians who lurk behind the scenes to exact their masterplans. They don’t appreciate Trump’s boisterous approach to politics, which is why he’s so dangerous to the establishment. Let’s face it: Protecting the establishment is what this entire investigation is all about.
3. Trump did not make any illegal requests of Mike Pence. The Former President had every right to fight against the widespread fraud that occurred during the 2020 election using the coronavirus as justification. Requesting that Mike Pence de-certify Biden’s fraudulent electoral votes should be considered an honest reprisal against such fraud.
Eastman recently filed a lawsuit to prevent the committee’s subpoena powers from obtaining private correspondences between he and Donald Trump, citing attorney-client privilege. The committee countered that Eastman did not have a “legitimate attorney-client relationship” with Trump during the time period in question and that his work was not done in “anticipation of litigation.”
The committee accused Eastman of aiding Trump’s efforts to overturn the 2020 election. They alleged that he likely engaged in illegal activity similar to Trump, including the effort to impede the certification of the 2020 election.
Lawmakers on the Jan. 6 committee have no legal standing to charge Trump (or anyone else) with a crime, though they are inching closer and closer to recommending charges. These “findings” mark a major turn in the tone of their investigation as it signals their willingness to obfuscate facts merely to destroy the Former President.
If allowed to proceed, this investigation will leave a stain on America’s legal system so deep it cannot be removed by any means. Everyone knows Trump didn’t break the law but his rise in political superstardom is causing a desperation Democrats have never known.
The Jan. 6 witch hunters must be stopped — and fast.
