The House committee investigating the attack on US Capital by a group of U.S. supporters said on Wednesday evening that Donald Trump and his allies were involved in criminal activities in an attempt to thwart the 2020 presidential election.
“The commission has ample evidence to prove in good faith that the President and his campaign members were involved in a criminal conspiracy to defraud the United States,” she wrote in a summary obtained through multiple sources.
The Commission’s statements did not formulate its final conclusion as the investigation was still ongoing.
This is no less against Mr. Trump, who fought for power after losing to Joe Biden.
U.S. media reported that the commission drafted its brief after a court motion seeking to obtain documents from moderate lawyer John Eastman.
Trump’s friend is the man who wrote the now-famous memo, explaining how Vice President Mike Pence can prevent lawmakers from confirming Joe Biden’s election victory over Donald Trump, usually at the January 6, 2021 general congressional session. Eventually, Mr. Pence refused to do so.
The Commission believes that this law is a violation of United States law which criminalizes “committing a crime against the United States or conspiring to defraud the United States or its agencies in any way.”
Donald Trump, then one of Twitter’s most powerful users, came up with the idea that election rigging could happen in the tens of millions of his followers months before and long before the election.
On January 6, before the assassination attack on the Capitol, he accused of electoral fraud at a rally in front of the White House and called on the audience to “fight.”
The Republican faced a second impeachment trial after the Capitol attack, but the Senate acquitted him of “inciting rebellion.”
He still dominates the Republican Party and regularly indicates his desire to run for a second term in 2024.
