[WATCH] Rep. Raskin Says ‘We Trust the Attorney General’ Regarding Potential DOJ Charges Against Trump

I'm a loser, says Trump quote on fake campaign site

Only two of the six scheduled January 6th House Select Committee hearings have aired so far, but new and severe damage to Donald Trump has already been done thanks to never-before-seen footage and testimony. And now the public perception seems to have shifted from “Will anyone care?” to “Will anyone bring charges against Trump?”

Both Committee Chair Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-MS) and Vice-Chair Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) made compelling opening statements during both hearings pinning the events of January 6th squarely on Trump himself. Monday morning’s hearing, which focused on the Big Lie regarding the 2020 Presidential Election, also presented what Committee member Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-CA) defined as “The Big RipOff”: proof of the Trump campaign’s continued grift to its non-existent Election Defense Fund, which continues even as Trump faces prosecution in Georgia and a deposition in New York.

The Committee doesn’t have the power to bring charges against Trump, nor any other members of his staff or family who were with him on January 6th and helped him push his big lie. But the panel can make criminal referrals to the Department of Justice, and after just two days of irrefutable evidence and damning testimony from former Attorney General Bill Barr, many legal experts are wondering if and when the current AG might file criminal charges against Donald Trump, as the evidence indicates.

January 6th Committee member Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD), coyly let it be known that Merrick Garland is indeed paying close attention to the Committee’s hearings, and it’s possible he’s already seen and heard enough to agree that Trump should be charged. Asked what he wants to see from the DOJ, Rep. Raskin essentially said everyone should just let AG Garland work, because he and the other Committee members “trust the Attorney General.”

The Committee’s next two hearings will take place on Wednesday at 10 am EST/7 am PST and Thursday at 1 pm PST/10 am PST. Your writer will continue to live-tweet from @taradublinrocks.
