The House Select Committee that is currently investigating the infamous, violent January 6th Capitol attack has made some pretty serious developments over the past 24 hours or so — including laying out potential criminal charges against Donald Trump and some of his key allies for criminal conspiracy to steal election.
The panel recently submitted a 221-page legal, deeply detailing all of their newest developments. Now, former acting Solicitor General Neal Katyal is breaking down what those hundreds of pages could potentially mean for the disgraced ex-president and his people, and frankly, it is not good news for Donald Trump.
A new report from The Washington Post reads:
Lawyers for the House panel investigating the Jan. 6, 2021 attack on the Capitol said in a court filing Wednesday that former president Donald Trump and key allies engaged in potential crimes during their effort to overturn the election: conspiring to defraud the United States and obstructing an official congressional proceeding — the counting of electoral votes. The alleged criminal acts were raised by the committee in a California federal court filing challenging conservative lawyer John Eastman’s refusal to turn over thousands of emails the panel has requested related to his role in trying to persuade Vice President Mike Pence to reject electors from states won by Joe Biden.”

During a segment with MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle, Katyal gave his professional analysis on this bombshell news.
“To me, this filing is not about John Eastman, he’s not a serious player or lawyer,” the former acting Solicitor General explained. “It’s a filing about Donald Trump.”
“And it’s serious because what you have here is a big deal. It’s a formal legal brief by this congressional committee, the January 6 committee, saying that there is a good faith basis to believe that Donald Trump committed felonies and this lawyer, John Eastman, helped him do it,” Katyal went on to state. “To have that kind of accusation from a congressional committee about a president happens so rarely in American history.”
Speaking specifically of the felony accusations that have now been officially made against the one-term, twice-impeached former president, Katyal said: “This is as deadly serious as it gets, seditious conspiracy.”
Frankly, Trump, that means it’s just about all over but the crying.
