Trump indicted over Capitol riot

January 6 news

The former US president has been charged regarding alleged efforts to overturn the 2020 election.

Former US president Donald Trump was indicted by a federal grand jury regarding his alleged efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election on Tuesday.

The Republican 2024 frontrunner faces four charges: conspiracy to defraud the United States, conspiracy to obstruct an official proceeding, obstruction of and attempt to obstruct an official proceeding, and conspiracy against rights.

The indictment also lists six unnamed co-conspirators, including four lawyers, a justice department official, and a political consultant.

The charging document alleges that by disseminating false claims about his victory, “creat[ing] an intense national atmosphere of mistrust and anger, and erod[ing] public faith in the administration of the election,” Trump laid the groundwork for his “conspiracies” – all of which, it claims, “targeted a bedrock function of the United States federal government.”

On Friday, Trump was indicted on charges of trying to “alter, destroy, mutilate or conceal evidence,” inducing someone else to do so, and willfully retaining national defense information related to a presentation about military activity in another country – adding to the existing 37 federal counts against him that stemmed from his allegedly illegal possession of classified documents at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida.

He was also indicted in Manhattan district court in April on 34 counts of falsifying business records related to the alleged payment of hush money to porn star Stormy Daniels.

Trump has pleaded not guilty to all charges thus far and continues to enjoy a significant lead over his Republican primary challengers. Federal indictments do not prevent a candidate from campaigning for the presidency.

  1. Somebody said to me that under US Law
    Trump could be in jail and still be President
    I said “Yeah then he could pardon himself” 🤣🤣🤣

  2. Dear President Trump;

    If you still have your US Passport, (or any other Caribbean Passport that has not been confiscated post-indictment trial) you need to board an anonymous G-700 and fly to Russia ASAP and ask for Political Asylum, as from there you can still run your campaign in the relative safety of Russia and be free from illegal incarceration(s) and the very real threat of assassination by the Zionist-run Deep State!
    And this time around, rid yourself of J3wi$h family members who deceptively lied to you in the *White House!
    (aka ‘Israel West’ and verified by the late Jim Traficant!).
