January 6 Committee Ready to Make Criminal Referrals, Is Trump the Focus?
This train has been moving down the track for some time now, and the January 6 committee is about to reach its dreadful destination. They are on the verge of announcing criminal referrals in relation to the riot at the Capitol following the 2020 presidential election.
Chairman Bennie Thompson, on Tuesday, made this official by telling reporters that referrals were on the way and would be submitted as a separate document from the final report of the committee.
Chairman Thompson did not announce names of people who will be receiving criminal referrals, but there’s not a person breathing who doesn’t believe that Donald Trump is the focus of their investigation.
The CNN article on this next move noted that the committee’s members have agreed that they feel the former president in fact committed a crime on January 6. It hasn’t mattered that they really never uncovered direct evidence supporting their feeling, and it won’t now. The train can not be stopped.
The bottom line is that former President Trump is in some serious trouble, it is as clear as a bell when you look at all of the moves the committee has made.
The committee’s actions are coinciding with the Department of Justices’ new special counsel who is targeting Trump. This is not being done by coincidence. Both the committee and the DOJ made announcements on the same day on issues that relate to Trump’s leadership. It was absolutely choreographed.
The DOJ special counsel Jack Smith subpoenaed officials in several states asking for communications with or involving former President Trump, his campaign aides, and his allies who might have been involved in his efforts to attempt to overturn the 2020 election. These subpoenas went out to officials in Wisconsin, Michigan, and Arizona.
The train has been unstoppable and people are now waiting at the station for what they hope will be Trump’s demise. He’s faced this same crowd before and surprised all of us.
