President Donald Trump has responded to the Democrats’ referral to the Department of Justice (DOJ) for criminal prosecution on January 6th.
On Monday, the House Committee of Democrats and anti-Trump Republicans, established by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), voted to recommend that Trump be prosecuted criminally by the DOJ.
The vote occurred despite the Committee’s inability to provide proof that Trump committed any crimes.
However, the Committee still recommends that the 45th president be prosecuted with obstruction of justice, conspiracy to defraud the United States, conspiracy to make false statements to the federal government, and incitement to rebellion.
The proposals are essentially symbolic, as they have no legal weight and DOJ is under no responsibility to implement them.
As there was no “insurrection” and Trump did not lead or encourage the Capitol disturbance, which the Committee is portraying as an attempt to “overthrow the government,” the Justice Department would have difficulty developing a case for such charges.
Trump responded to the Committee’s proposal in a Truth Social post.
“These folks don’t get it that when they come after me, people who love freedom rally around me,” Trump said.
“It strengthens me. What doesn’t kill me makes me stronger.
“Americans know that I pushed for 20,000 troops to prevent violence on Jan 6 and that I went on television and told everyone to go home.
“The people understand that the Democratic Bureau of Investigation, the DBI, are out to keep me from running for president because they know I’ll win and that this whole business of prosecuting me is just like impeachment was — a partisan attempt to sideline me and the Republican Party.
“Think of it! The Radical Left Democrats (Communists), SPIED on my campaign, lied to the FISA COURT, lied to CONGRESS, allowed an INVASION of our COUNTRY on the Southern Border, EMBARRASSED us in Afghanistan, gave away our Energy Independence, killed us on job losing Regulations, wouldn’t use the 10,000 plus soldiers I recommended for Jan 6th, Rigged & Stole the 2020 Election, allowed Ballot Stuffing, FBI/Facebook/Twitter & Biden CRIME!” Trump continued.
“And I’m the one that the Corrupt and Partisan Unselect Committee goes after,” he added.
“A two tiered ‘Justice’ System …
“And, by the way, what ever happened with the Massive number of CRIMES committed by JOE & HUNTER BIDEN?
“They’re right there, documented and 100% certain,” Trump asserted.
“Also, where is the prosecutor from Delaware? What happened to him?
“Is he friends with the Ukrainian Prosecutor who didn’t prosecute after Biden held up the $BILLION PAYMENT to Ukraine?
“I DID NOTHING WRONG!”
