There’s a very good chance that in a federal courthouse somewhere in Washington, D.C. right now, a grand jury has been empaneled and is meeting to hear evidence and hand down indictments for crimes committed on January 6 when an enraged mob of Trump supporters stormed the Capitol, which resulted in the death of five people, including a police officer.
According to former federal prosecutor Glenn Kirschner, one of the suspects being considered for indictment is none other than former President Donald Trump.
Speaking with Dean Obeidallah, Kirschner explained:
“I do believe that the U.S. Attorney’s office for the District of Columbia, my former professional home for decades, is in the grand jury aggressively investigating the insurrection.
“And after they confess, they will ask the motive question, why did you do this? Indeed, every last one of them will be saying the same thing.
“’Donald Trump told me to. He told me that people in that building up the street that he was going to march on with us, he punked out, they stole my vote. They stole our election. And he told us to go in there and stop them.'”
Take those confessions to a grand jury, along with the people who participated in the rioting, and you’ve got a slam dunk case against Donald Trump, Kirschner continued:
“Well first of all, that’s inciting insurrection, and second, what that does, is it’s building a case against Donald Trump and Don Jr. and Giuliani for, among other things, their pep talk telling these insurrectionists to get up the street and get into the capital.
“I think that all of my friends and colleagues at the DC U.S. Attorney’s office are working night and day to build a seditious conspiracy case, and incitement to insurrection case against Donald Trump and the others, and not to argue against myself, and the argument is Donald Trump should be locked up right now.”
Imagine it: A grand jury hands down an indictment against Donald Trump, Don Jr., and others for seditious conspiracy. The case against them is airtight and they’re all convicted. How long would they be looking at in prison for such a crime? A minimum of 10 years behind bars. But it could be much longer.
When Donald Trump told the crowd to march on the Capitol, he may have sealed his fate.
