Democrats sense the mayhem at the Capitol is their moment to force President Trump from office early.
This fight just took a surprising turn.
And Donald Trump made a surprising confession about the riot at the Capitol.
On a caucus conference call, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy informed his members that Donald Trump told him that the President believed he bore some responsibility for the riot at the Capitol which took place after Trump addressed a “March to Save America” rally.
“McCarthy tells Republicans on a call just now that Trump told him he does bear some responsibility for the Capitol riots, per source,” POLITICO’s congressional reporter Melanie Zanona posted on Twitter.
Breitbart also confirmed this reporting.
McCarthy’s relaying the President’s comments came on the same day District of Columbia Attorney General Karl Racine told MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell that his office would investigate President Trump on criminal charges of inciting a riot.
“I think we’ve got to really dig in and get all of the facts. I know I’m looking at a charge under the D.C. code of inciting violence. That would apply where there’s a clear recognition that one’s incitement could lead to foreseeable violence. We still have more investigation to do, and that’s what we’re going to do. We’re going to work zealously and fully and where the facts lead to where they naturally go,” Racine stated.
Racine told Mitchell that an Office of Legal Counsel memo stating that a sitting President could not be charged with a crime would be no impediment to his probe because Trump would soon leave office.
“Sure, Andrea, as you know, the OLC opinion says the president can’t be prosecuted while the president is in office. As it turns out, the president has about nine more days of office, and, of course, the investigation is going to go on much beyond those nine days. It will be another legal question as to whether the president can be prosecuted after his term of office. I think the better weight of authority answers that question affirmatively. And I’m not targeting the president or anyone else. I’m just saying the D.C. office of Attorney General, and I’m heartened that the U.S. Attorney also said the same thing, we’re going to follow the facts, and we’re going to go exactly where the facts lead,” Racine added.
The fake news media’s framed their allegations that President Trump incited a riot as if it is a statement of fact.
But it’s important to note what Donald Trump actually said.
The President told rally-goers to “peacefully” protest at the Capitol.
“I know that everyone here will soon be marching over to the Capitol building to peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard,” Trump stated.
President Trump and his supporters can look at the context of the President’s remarks and not fall for another impeachment scheme.
