Trump's not going to have many supporters left if arrests continue at their current rate!

US Capitol riots: Investigators warn that hundreds of people are expected to be charged

More than 160 FBI cases have been opened, and 70 people have been charged so far.

More than 170 individuals are being investigated over their involvement in last week's riot at the US Capitol - and 70 have been charged.

Washington DC's top federal prosecutor says investigators are working towards charging people with assault and seditious conspiracy.

The number of people who are charged over the deadly unrest is expected to rise into the hundreds.

Acting US attorney Michael Sherwin said: "The Capitol grounds outside and inside are... a crime scene."

A counter-terrorism investigation has also been launched in connection with the two pipe bombs found outside the headquarters of the Democratic and Republic parties.

While many of the criminal cases filed so far involve people whose photos went viral on social media, Mr Sherwin warned more serious charges are coming - and a grand jury has been reviewing the cases.

Some more information on that - they are also looking at cases of "Public Corruption" related to the riots at the Capitol.

https://www.cbsnews.com/news/us-capi...investigation/

Quote:
Acting U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia Michael Sherwin said Tuesday a "strike force" of senior national security and public corruption prosecutors within his office are investigating charges related to the "most heinous" acts that occurred at the Capitol. Sherwin said the team is investigating whether rioters coordinated and planned their assault, combing through travel records, financial information and communications.

Quote:
House GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy called on President Donald Trump to “accept his share of responsibility” for the violence that overtook the U.S. Capitol last week and urged Republicans to accept that Joe Biden is the next leader of the nation.

“The president bears responsibility for Wednesday's attack on Congress by mob rioters,” McCarthy said on the House floor. “He should have immediately denounced the mob when he saw what was unfolding. These facts require immediate action by President Trump."

The sooner he's behind bars and I'm being served in one, the better.

Re: U.S Election 2020

I think that’s a given. The attraction for republicans is that they now have the chance to bar Trump from running again. At this point that’s worth a heap more than symbolically ejecting him from office a week before he goes anyway.

Re: U.S Election 2020

Much as I dislike Trump the person, I think that the impeachment proceedings as being played out now, are a mistake. Trump is clearly unfit for office but a political move like this is highly divisive; it was more or less passed on the nod.

Trump is in considerable disgrace - he leaves office shortly and the FBI can then investigate whether or not he has committed any crimes. In other words, due process.

Re: U.S Election 2020

For a sitting president, this is due process. Impeachment is political but the Senate trial isn’t - at least not in the same narrow tribal sense. The bar to conviction must be set high, and a two-thirds majority of a chamber that includes political allies is only going to be won over by the most egregious behaviour. A Senate may acquit on political grounds but a conviction represents a broad consensus that the president is indeed guilty.

Yes because Dems have never incited anything in the last four years - Do you actually know what you write?

This will not deter folk or calm things down, this will fire up Trump's base even more - Dems reap what they sow, that is if they are actually any good at that, seeing as they are crap at governing.

Re: U.S Election 2020

It will fire up his core support for sure. However the Republican Party is split down the middle and the non-Trump half now has an opportunity to ensure he can’t run in 2024 - can’t even promote speculation about running in fact, because he will be barred. If there are enough anti-Trump republicans in the Senate, they may well feel their best chance of taking the White House in 2024 is to lance the Trump boil now and hope the party moves on.
