January 6 Committee Now Has ‘Smoking Gun’ Evidence Against Donald Trump: Report

Now that the January 6 House Select Committee has been able to determine that failed, one-term, twice-impeached former president Donald Trump did indeed play a major part in the conspiracy to overturn the 2020 election and remain in power via a coup, that has opened up new avenues of investigation and potential charges, according to a former federal prosecutor.

Glenn Kirschner was a guest on MSNBC Sunday, and host Cori Coffin noted as she introduced him:

“As we learn more about potential witness tampering during the Jan. 6 committee’s investigation, this week’s testimony of former White House staffer Cassidy Hutchinson could explain why those in Trumpworld were so worried about what she might have to say.

“According to Hutchison, Trump knew that some of his supporters would be armed that day, sent them to the Capitol anyway, even hoping to join them. So, does this open up the former president to be criminally liable?”

Kirschner responded in the affirmative:

“Yeah, this is what I would call smoking gun evidence.”

He then added:

“And interestingly, at the last J6 public hearing, we got both smoking gun evidence, and we got loaded gun evidence. And what I mean by that is, as you just played in your lead-in, Cori, the president knew. He was briefed that his crowd was armed with assault rifles and pistols and knives and brass knuckles and bear spray, etc.”

But it was what Kirschner said next that should be of special concern to the ex-president and his cultish followers:

“And you would think a reasonable response from a president would be, oh my goodness, let’s make sure the metal detectors are operating properly. He said just the opposite, take them down, let the armed members of the group in, and they can march to the Capitol from there. To do what? To stop the certification of his political opponent’s election win. So in a very real sense, that smoking gun evidence that Donald Trump wanted to lead what we now know is an armed attack on the Capitol. The loaded gun evidence is, the witness tampering information, and you know, witness tampering just strikes at the very heart of the integrity of investigations, whether congressional or criminal.”

Donald Trump deserves to be indicted and tried for his crimes. Let’s just hope it happens soon.
