A commission investigating the attack on the Washington Capitol found that there was "more than one criminal referral" which could lead to former President Donald Trump being charged with insurrection. In her first interview since beginning the public audit, Liz Cheney, vice president of this committee, revealed the details. This was after an extremist protest stormed Congress' headquarters in an unprecedented attack on democracy in the United States. Joined. The Republican congresswoman announced that although the commission has not yet reached a decision, it is possible that criminal charges could be brought against the tycoon.
Since Cassidy Hutchinson (25), an assistant to Mark Meadows on the White House chiefs of staff declared that Trump's purpose was for him to be at the head the hundreds of radicals who invaded the Capitol, the work of the commission has been a revolution. He recalled the massive outburst that Trump experienced when his security services took him back to Washington to stop him from mixing with the protesters. Many of them were carrying weapons. . Hutchinson from a position that grants her privileged witness status also stated that she heard the first comments about Trump's attack on January 2, 2017, from Rudy Giuliani, Trump’s lawyer, as well as Meadows herself. This would ensure that the coup wasn't spontaneous.
Although ex-acolytes and former members of the 'praetorian Guard' tried to discredit these claims in recent times, the commission, based upon evidence and testimony from politicians, considered enough "criminal" elements credible to place Trump on the brink for a sedition charge.
Cheney also believes that the Department of Justice doesn't need the results of the congressional investigation and could only promote an indictment with material already discovered. One of the elements of the accusation is worthy of American fiction. It concerns the aggression the former president would have committed to one of his escorts in order to take control of the vehicle in the which he was returned to the White House. This behavior, if proven, would show the extent of alienation and his intent to march with radicals on Capitol Hill to try to win the nomination of Democrat Joe Biden.

The January 6th Commission has grown up. It has evolved from being contemptuous towards the Republican majority to becoming a parallel Prosecutor’s Office. It is a respected and credible organization thanks to its thorough investigation, which was characterized by the quality of the people questioned, as well as the efforts to keep no loose ends and ignore the political diatribe despite the fact that it is a mixed Democrat-Republican.
His next sessions promise. The congressmen have now confirmed the source of the funding for the mutiny by proving the extremist profile and violence of the assailants. They believe that it required huge sums of money to mobilize a mob, and that donors will be able to help them to prove who was behind the plot. Sources close to the Commission say Cassidy Hutchinson’s statements have encouraged others to testify in this investigation.
The results are already putting the Department of Justice in serious trouble. There have been several editorials in the last hour that said it was very difficult for the judiciary not to investigate the evidence or turn a blind eye. This is despite the fact that a criminal case against Trump could cause unprecedented social and politically fragmentation in America. This abstraction would suggest to Americans that Trump is above the courts, and his own electoral decisions. It's a gesture closer towards authoritarianism rather than democracy.
This all happens at a moment when the United States is eagerly awaiting Trump's decision regarding his participation in 2024 presidential elections. Sources predict that Trump could announce his candidacy on this date, July 4, in an attempt to not only refloat his leadership within broad sections of conservatism but also to profit from the trip and make it more difficult to face criminal charges. He would have chosen to announce his candidacy before the January 6 Commission, which will reveal his final conclusions, and not wait until 2023. Liz Chenney says that the candidacy hypothesis makes it more urgent for the judiciary to intervene. In an interview, the vice president of Liz Chenney stated that Donald Trump is a dangerous man and should not be allowed to return to the Oval Office. She was convinced that the Republican Party would fail if Trump were elected as its next candidate.
