    Thirteen months after ordering his blindly loyal supporters – who believe his Big Lie of a "rigged" and "stolen election" – to "march to the Capitol" and "fight like hell" to "stop the steal" or "we're not going to have a country anymore," Donald Trump has yet to be punished for inciting a deadly riot. Oh, sure, he was impeached – but a majority of Senate Retrumplicans, who have sold their souls to Donald Trump, voted for acquittal.

    Judge says Trump could be culpable for January 6 and says lawsuits against the former President can proceed
    CNN, Feb 18 2022 7:06 PM EST

    Civil lawsuits seeking to hold Donald Trump accountable for the January 6, 2021 insurrection can move forward in court, a federal judge said today in a ruling outlining how the former President could conceivably be responsible for inciting the attack on the US Capitol. Trump’s statements to his supporters before the riot “is the essence of civil conspiracy,” Judge Amit Mehta wrote in a 112-page opinion, because Trump spoke about himself and rallygoers working “towards a common goal” of fighting and walking down Pennsylvania Avenue. “The President’s January 6 Rally Speech can reasonably be viewed as a call for collective action,” Mehta said.

    Democratic members of the House and police officers who defended the US Capitol on January 6 sued Trump last year, claiming he prompted his supporters to attack. Friday, Mehta wrote that the three lawsuits could move to the evidence-gathering phase and toward a trial – a major loss in court for Trump. "Tlhe President’s actions here do not relate to his duties of faithfully executing the laws, conducting foreign affairs, commanding the armed forces or managing the Executive Branch,” Mehta wrote. “They entirely concern his efforts to remain in office for a second term. These are unofficial acts, so the separation-of-powers concerns that justify the President’s broad immunity are not present here.”

    Two of the lawsuits were brought by Democratic House members while a third was filed by Capitol Police officers. The lawmakers allege that they were threatened by Trump and others as part of a conspiracy to stop the Congressional session that would certify the 2020 Presidential election on January 6, 2021. They argue that Trump should bear responsibility for directing the assaults. Trump’s legal team is likely to appeal the decision.

    Powell helped spread The Big Lie that the 2020 Presidential election was stolen from Donald Trump – and, like Trump, she does not want Americans discovering the truth about the deadly, Trump-incited Capitol riot.

    The man who bragged that he was the "most transparent President" in history has fought hard to keep Americans from seeing his financial records and his White House records. He just lost another legal challenge

    This blindly loyal Trump supporter says she was overcome by "dark energy forces." Yeah, I guess that's what happens when you believe Donald Trump's Big Lie that the 2020 Presidential election was "rigged" and "stolen" from him.

    And another blindly loyal Trump supporter who believed Trump's Big Lie of a stolen election and obeyed his command to "march to the Capitol" and "fight like hell" is headed to prison.

    Donald Trump, who has made thousands of baseless claims that the 2020 Presidential election was "rigged" and "stolen," did everything he could to try to rig and steal the 2020 Presidential election. And unfortunately he had help. A lot of help.

    Donald Trump had several calls with lawyer on January 6, House Committee says
    Newsweek, Mar 1 2022

    The House Committee investigating the January 6 insurrection has subpoenaed a lawyer who had reportedly been in contact with then-President Donald Trump the same day a mob of his supporters stormed the US Capitol. The committee today issued letters to six witnesses demanding documents and testimony for what it described as their roles seeking to overturn the election in the leadup to the insurrection. Since being formed last year, the committee has turned its attention in recent months to how efforts by Trump and his inner circle to stay in power allegedly played into the attack.

    One of the newly subpoenaed witnesses is Kurt Olsen, a lawyer who previously assisted with unsuccessful efforts to overturn President Joe Biden's 2020 election victory. The committee's letter to Olsen states that he had "multiple telephone calls" with Trump on January 6 after previously providing legal assistance to help the then-President overturn the election.

    Trump and right-wing lawyer were part of 'criminal conspiracy' to overturn 2020 election, January 6 committee alleges

    https://www.cnn.com/2022/03/02/polit...tee/index.html

    The House committee can not bring criminal charges against Donald Trump. That will be up to the Department of Justice, which still has filed no obstruction-of-justice charges relating to Trump's conduct during the Mueller investigation – and the statute of limitations on Trump's offenses is expiring in 2022 and 2023. Teflon Don manages to get away with everything.

    A lawyer for Donald Trump insisted Mike Pence could overturn the 2020 election results. He told Trump exactly what Trump wanted to hear – but the Vice President has no power or authority to reject any electors. Trump, of course, didn't know that. He has never read the Constitution of the United States of America. We now know what a lawyer for Pence wrote to the lawyer for Trump on the day of the deadly Capitol riot.

    This blindly loyal Trump supporter was "psychologically frail," according to his lawyer – but he obviously wasn't frail when he believed Donald Trump's Big Lie and obeyed Trump's command to "march to the Capitol" and "fight like hell."
