“We don’t expect any charges of that nature.”
The Department of Justice said it will not press charges against President Donald Trump and other speakers at the Save America Rally, which proceeded the riot at Capitol Hill.
President Donald Trump is not expected to be criminally charged with inciting a riot at the U.S. Capitol, a Department of Justice official said Friday, just a day after the top federal prosecutor in the District of Columbia did not rule out charging Trump.
“We don’t expect any charges of that nature,” the official said Friday during a conference call with reporters when asked if the DOJ was considering charges against speakers at a rally for Trump right before Wednesday’s riot.
Trump, his lawyer Rudy Giuliani, and the president’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., all spoke at the rally, which focused on their bogus claims that Joe Biden only won the presidential election through ballot fraud in multiple states.
Another DOJ official said that at this point the federal investigation is focused solely on criminal acts at the Capitol building.
I’m reading Trump’s speech at the rally and it’s the same old, same old that he has said at every rally since November 3rd.DONATE
