Indicting Trump for the assault on the Capitol? The Attorney General's decision

Sylvie Claire / July 23, 2022

The message did not go unnoticed: on Thursday night, the chairman of the House Select Committee on the Capitol Hill attack said that all those responsible for the assault should be held accountable, including the White House.
Donald Trump opened the floodgates to disorder and corruption and must be held legally responsible for the Jan. 6, 2021, attack, the chairman of the House committee investigating the assault on the Capitol said Thursday.
The former Republican president "tried to destroy our democratic institutions, said Bennie Thompson during a prime time hearing, which completes a series of public presentations of the work of his committee. He opened the way to disorder and corruption, said the Democrat, who was ill with Covid and spoke via video link. For him, all those responsible for the attack, including the White House will have to answer for their actions before the law.
There will have to be severe consequences, otherwise I fear that our democracy will not recover.
Two members of the committee then presented the day of January 6, 2021, as lived minute by minute by Donald Trump, whom they accused of having failed in his duty as commander in chief, by doing nothing to prevent his supporters from sowing chaos in the Capitol.
Yet it was he who had summoned them to Washington on the day that lawmakers were to certify the victory of his Democratic rival Joe Biden in the presidential election. Around noon, in a fiery speech in the heart of the capital, he asked them to fight like hell against supposed massive electoral fraud. He then headed back to the White House, while the crowd stormed the temple of American democracy. It took him more than three hours to call on his supporters to leave. I know your pain, he finally told them in a video posted on Twitter. But we need to go home now.
