Investigators say it is too early in the investigation to potentially rule out charges against Trump for attempting a coup.
Video of Senator Dick Durbin on CNN’s State Of The Union:
Senator Dick Durbin says Trump was planning a coup, and when asked if the former president could be prosecuted, he replied, “I don’t know yet. It’s too early in the investigation,” which is not a no. https://t.co/udWgpyWuiZ
CNN’s Dana Bash asked Senator Durbin, “Is that what you see and describe an attempted coup? “
The Illinois Senator replied, “Well they were through” the ordinary process. It wasn’t like the President removed the lawyer general and do Pronouncements that still happen Coup, I think from classic definition. It lead to Process.”
Bash replied, “Last question, did you? talked to the current lawyer General, Merrick Garland, and go ahead You think there is potential for Complaint?”
Durbin replied, “I don’t know the answer the. It’s too early in the Examination. “
The Senate Judiciary Committee could refer Trump to prosecution
The early evidence presented by former Acting Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen is devastating. Trump tried personally and directly to pressure the DOJ to intervene in the election for him.
Trump didn’t let others do it. He tried to use the weight and power of his office to stage a coup.
Senator Durbin described Trump building pressure on the DOJ for a coup, but Trump’s campaign at the White House, along with his funding and planning for the 1/6 rally, looks very much like an attempted coup.
The big realization in the early stages of the investigation is that the door is not closed to criminal charges against Trump.,
