(Worthy News) – The Select Committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol riot recommended that the Department of Justice (DOJ) charge former President Donald Trump with four counts related to attempts to overturn the 2020 presidential election.

The committee unanimously voted to report that Trump should be charged with obstructing an official proceeding, conspiracy to defraud the government, conspiracy to make a false statement and inciting or assisting an insurrection. The committee’s move was first reported by NBC News. The recommendation does not carry force of law, and the DOJ is currently carrying out its own investigation.

Full List of Trump Allies Hit With Criminal Referrals After Jan. 6 Hearing

The final public hearing of the January 6 House Select Committee was held on Monday afternoon—with committee members revealing criminal referrals for numerous individuals involved in the planning of last year’s insurrection attempt.

Chief among those individuals was former President Donald Trump, the first president in American history to be the subject of such criminal referrals. As committee member Jamie Raskin laid out during the hearing, Trump is being referred to the Department of Justice (DOJ) for charges of obstruction of an official proceeding, conspiracy to defraud the United States, conspiracy to make a false statement, and inciting, assisting, or aiding and comforting an insurrection.

Other figures in Trump’s orbit during the lead-up to the Capitol riots were also singled out in the committee’s final report as co-conspirators involved in crafting the scheme to overturn the election. In total, five men were referred to the DOJ for criminal charges for their part in the insurrection, though not all for the same charges: John Eastman, Mark Meadows, Rudy Guiliani, Kenneth Cheseboro, and Jeffrey Clark.

Alan Dershowitz Questions if Trump Criminal Referral Is Constitutional

Attorney Alan Dershowitz says that the House committee investigating January 6 violated the U.S. Constitution in several ways by referring former President Donald Trump for prosecution.

Dershowitz, a Harvard law professor who represented Trump in his impeachment trial in 2020 and more recently represented former Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake in her election-challenging lawsuit, discussed the House committee’s criminal referrals on his podcast, The Dershow, on Monday evening.

According to Dershowitz, the committee violated the Constitution by overstepping its limited powers as part of a legislative body that are mapped out in Article 1.

Dershowitz also pointed to Section 3 of Article 1, which states that Congress cannot pass a bill of attainder—a piece of legislation that declares a party is guilty of a crime. [ Source: Newsweek (Read More…) ]
