Democrats Vote To Refer Trump to Criminal Charges: “He’ll NEVER Be President Again”

Dems vote to criminally refer Trump

Democrats voted on Dec. 19 to refer former President Donald Trump for criminal charges in a bid to prevent him running for re-election in 2024.

Members of the select committee to investigate the Jan. 6, 2021, breach of the U.S. Capitol cast votes for the four referrals during a Monday hearing in Washington. They unanimously voted to refer insurrection, obstruction of an official proceeding, making a false statement to the federal government, and conspiracy to defraud the federal government to Biden’s corrupt DOJ. reports: “Accountability … can only be found in the criminal justice system. We have every confidence that the work of this committee will help provide a roadmap to justice and that the agencies and the institutions responsible for ensuring justice under the law will use the information that we provided to aid in their work,” said Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.), chairman of the panel.

The DOJ and a lawyer for Trump didn’t immediately respond to requests for comment.

The panel also referred other unspecified people to the department.

“Our criminal referrals were based on the gravity of the offense, the centrality of the actors, and the evidence we had available to us,” Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-Md.), a member of the panel, told reporters after the hearing. “There were undoubtedly other people involved, but we were stymied by virtue of a lot of people refusing to come and testify, refusing to give us the information they had or taking the Fifth Amendment. So we chose to advance the names of people where we felt certain that there was abundant evidence that they had participated in crimes.”

U.S. law bars insurrection, with the code stating that “whoever incites, sets on foot, assists, or engages in any rebellion or insurrection against the authority of the United States or the laws thereof, or gives aid or comfort thereto, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.”

One law bars obstruction of official proceedings, starting in part that a person may not “corruptly, or by threats or force, or by any threatening letter or communication influences, obstructs, or impedes or endeavors to influence, obstruct, or impede the due and proper administration of the law” by Congress.

A third statute forbids people from conspiring to defraud the United States. The code was defined by a Supreme Court justice as “primarily to cheat the Government out of property or money, but it also means to interfere with or obstruct one of its lawful governmental functions by deceit, craft or trickery, or at least by means that are dishonest.”

Another law bars making a false statement to the federal government.

If the DOJ follows through with the recommended charges, Trump could face up to 25 years in prison and fines.

Alan Dershowitz, professor emeritus at Harvard Law School, said on Newsmax that under separation of powers, Congress doesn’t have the power to recommend prosecution.

Trump was charged with incitement of an insurrection by the U.S. House of Representatives with regard to the Jan. 6, 2021, breach of the U.S. Capitol, but the Senate acquitted Trump in an impeachment trial.

Special counsel Jack Smith, recently appointed by Attorney General Merrick Garland, is heading two investigations that do or could involve Trump. That includes the probe into whether Trump violated laws by holding certain records at his Mar-a-Lago resort and the investigation into alleged crimes linked to the interference of the transfer of power following the 2020 presidential election or the electoral vote certification held on Jan. 6, 2021.

U.S. District Judge Amit Mehta, an Obama appointee, ruled in February in civil litigation involving Trump that it was “at least plausible to infer that, when he called on rally-goers to march to the Capitol, the President did so with the goal of disrupting lawmakers’ efforts to certify the Electoral College votes,” and that it was also plausible Trump knew his role “was to encourage the use of force, intimidation, or threats to thwart the Certification from proceeding, and organized groups such as the Proud Boys and the Oath Keepers would carry out the required acts.”

Trump, in a speech at The Ellipse on Jan. 6, 2021, urged supporters to “fight like hell” and to go to the Capitol, but he also called on people to “peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard.”

No one has been charged with insurrection in connection with the breach. A subset of those charged have been convicted of or are facing seditious conspiracy charges.

The House Jan. 6 panel is dominated by Democrats; only two Republicans are on the panel, and both were appointed by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.). House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) proposed a slate of members, but Pelosi rejected two of them, prompting McCarthy to pull the rest from consideration.


  1. Me veo obligado a escribir en varios idiomas porque: 1. A la mayoría de las personas en los Estados Unidos se les ha lavado el cerebro para que crean que los judíos son su salvación; y 2., su inglés es una mierda y no pueden estar callados el tiempo suficiente para escuchar o ver lo que obviamente sucede a su alrededor…

    Ningún país está corriendo su propia carrera en esta invasión porque todo es una agenda política dirigida por las Naciones Unidas e impulsada por los judíos y sus títeres (políticos). La mayoría de la gente simplemente no quiere saber o entender que esta es una agenda política. Sin embargo, algunos logran entender que los políticos están trabajando a propósito para importar musulmanes y reemplazar a los humanos, pero eso es todo, son como una computadora que no puede continuar porque el programa no lo permite. Banqueros judíos están inundando Europa con los musulmanes y América basura del Tercer Mundo.

    El judeo-mesianismo lleva diseminando su venenoso mensaje entre nosotros desde hace casi dos mil años. Los universalismos democrático y comunista son cosa de los últimos tiempos, pero no han venido sino a reforzar el viejo judío narrativo. Son los mismos ideales . . . Los ideales transnacionales, transraciales, transexuales, transculturale que nos predican estas ideologías (más allá de pueblos, razas, culturas) y que son el alimento cotidiano en nuestras escuelas, en nuestros medios de comunicación, en nuestros la cultura popular, en nuestras universidades y sobre nuestras calles, han terminado por reducir a su mínima expresión nuestra identidad biosimbólica y nuestro orgullo étnico. Mammonismo y el bolchevismo son hermanastras judías.

  2. The secret cabal that is running this country (It sure isn’t Joe Biden), will never allow Trump to be President again. they took their thumb off the scale in 2016 as they were convinced Hillary had it in the bag. They won’t make that mistake again. By any means necessary. If 2020 and 2022 showed us anything, it shows the lengths the left will go to make sure they don’t lose power again.

  3. dirty politics is all liberals do. they know they will never win if Trump runs again, so they have to manufacture charges. Its disgusting and every liberal politician follows this same plan, demonizing and criminalizing their competition
