GOP Warns Prosecution of Trump Would Lead to Political War

ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY…
1948: US Supreme Court rules in McCollum v. Board of Education that religious instruction in public schools is unconstitutional.

GOP lawmakers warn that any prosecution of former President Donald Trump will lead to a political war.

In a court filing last week, the House Jan. 6 committee signaled its likely referral to the Department of Justice, saying the panel has “a good-faith basis for concluding that the president and members of his campaign engaged in a criminal conspiracy to defraud the United States.”

But Republican legislators and political strategists warn that any federal prosecution of Trump will be accused of being politically motivated, boost Trump within the GOP, and turn into a partisan battle as President Joe Biden pivots to the center, struggling to keep his 2020 campaign promise to unify the country.

Sen. Mike Braun (R-IN) said any criminal referral from the House “would probably have as much political taint on it as you can get.”

“To me it’s clearly politically driven,” he said, adding, “At least half the country would say it’s all politically motivated.”

“Everybody is going to perceive the referral as a conviction on one side and they’re going to view it as the continuation of a witch hunt on the other side,” Sen. Thom Tillis (R-N.C.) said.

“The bar that the House committee has is far lower than anything that would ultimately result in moving forward with a federal investigation and a conviction.”

Strategists close to Trump predict a battle royale if the DOJ indicts the former president.

“I think it could backfire in a way that they have no clue,” said Republican pollster Jim McLaughlin. “I think it’s going to backfire because it just so political, and it’s tainted.”

“The country wants to move on. Nobody is proud of what happened on Jan. 6 but people are like, ‘With all the problems we have going on in the country right now, this is going to be the focus of the Democrats?'”

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), a close Trump ally and senior member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said any recommendation to prosecute from the House select committee would lack credibility.

“I don’t see anything coming out of this committee not tainted by politics,” he said.

Republicans also caution that any federal prosecution of Trump would likely result in congressional investigations of Biden and his son Hunter if the GOP regains the House and Senate majorities in the 2022 midterm elections.

“I wonder if they’re ever going to file charges against Hillary Clinton for what she did after 2016,” said Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI).

A prosecution “will only make Trump stronger with the GOP primary voters,” said Ford O’Connell, a Republican strategist.

“If your goal is to make sure Donald Trump is the nominee in 2024 for the Republicans, then by all means proceed with this. You’re just going to make him stronger,” he said.

    Prosecute Trump, then Congress would have to prosecute Bill and Hillary Clinton and Barry Soetoro (Obama)

  2. Paul says:

    Why are Republicans held to a different standard than the democrats? Bill and Hillary, Barrack Obama, James Comey and the rest of the corrupt should have been investigated…including Joe Biden and his crack addicted son Hunter!

    1. Bruce Savage says:

      Paul;
      Being investigated for inciting a secessionist attempt to throw out the legally elected government is not being held to a different standard. None of the folks that you mention did anything like that. So quit wining.

      1. pal says:

        Bruce…you are spouting nonsense. A MAJOR protest against obvious election malfeasance is in NO way an attempt to “overthrow” an “elected” govt….. Reason 1 is that the Biden govt was NOT elected as yet when the protests occurred….. Number 2 is that the procedure for VP Pence and Congress to resolve the complaints from various States was NOT followed Constitutionally, therefore the resolution of the Electoral votes was Unconstitutional and illegal….Nice try at your fake narrative.

    2. SPECOPS2020 says:

      THEY ARE BEING INVESTIGATED/ THERE ARE ALREADY SEALED INDICTMENTS ON THEM,. YOU’LL NEVER HEAR IT FROM THE MEDIA, THE COMPLETELY CORRUPT MEDIA, AND YOU WILL HAVE TO BE A BIT PATIENT, BECAUSE WE ARE IN THE PROCESS OF CATCHING THEM IN THE ACT, OF THE DEEDS THEY ARE COMMITTING NOW. TRUMP DOES THIS BY THE BOOK. HE WILL NOT BE ARRESTED, NO MATTER WHAT COMES OUT OF THAT FAKE COMMITTEE. THE COMMIE-CRATS, ARE VERY GOOD AT PROJECTING WHAT THEY ARE, AND WHAT THEY DO, ONTO SOMEONE ELSE. TO LIBERALS, THEIR MALFEASANCE, IS ALWAYS “SOMEONE ELSE’S FAULT”, BECAUSE WE ARE THE BEST FOR THE DEMOCRACY… BUT, THEY HAVE NEVER UNDERSTOOD, OR, TAKE THAT BACK, THEY DON’T WANT A “REPUBLIC” OF THE PEOPLE. THEY WANT A DEMOCRACY, RUNNING EVERYONE’S LIVES, THROUGH MARXISM. YOU CAN COUNT ON THINGS TURNING THE CORNER, VERY, VERY SOON. WHY DO YOU THINK THEY ARE THREATENING ALL OF THIS BULL CRAP?? THEY ARE SCARED CRAP-LESS, AND THEY WILL THROW ANYTHING UP AGAINST THE WALL, TO SEE IF IT STICKS…. TRUST ME… IT WILL NOT. IT WILL BACKFIRE ON THEM LIKE THEY NEVER WOULD THINK… THEY’RE CARELESS, AND SLOPPY. THEY’VE ALREADY BEEN CAUGHT.
      TRUMP TOLD YOU THIS – ” I CAUGHT THEM ALL, WE HAVE EVERYTHING.” NOW, TO FINALIZE THE TRAP HE SET FOR THEM. “SOMETIMES YOU CANNOT TELL THE PEOPLE WHAT IS HAPPENING, YOU HAVE TO SHOW THEM….”
      THIS IS WHAT YOU ARE SEEING NOW… “DEVOLUTION”…. ELIMINATING YOUR ENEMY, BY LETTING THEM DESTROY THEMSELVES. AND THEY ARE QUITE GOOD AT IT.

      NOTHING CAN STOP WHAT IS COMING…. NOTHING!!! WWG1WGA!!!! NO ONE WALKS AWAY FROM THIS…..!

      Because they may have done some shady things but all of them together haven’t had as many criminal court cases as Trump has…

      1. SPECOPS2020 says:

        NAME ONE CRIMINAL COURT CASE TRUMP HAS HAD BROUGHT AGAINST HIM? YOU CAN’T! BECAUSE YOU’RE ARE PART OF THE SHILL PROPAGANDA, D*CK HEAD…. ONE THING YOU SHOULD KNOW… I WORK FOR “THE TEAM”. MEANING, I AM IN THE KNOW. ANY AND ALL CASES, WERE DISMISSED. I KNOW IT, YOUR MARXIST PUPPET MASTERS KNOW IT, AND MOST OF THE POPULATION KNOWS IT… YOU’VE LOST. WE’VE WON, EVEN BEFORE YOU REALIZE IT. THEY THEY HAVE AWOKE… YOU’RE NOT STILL ASLEEP, YOU ARE WITH THE EVIL SIDE. I KNOW IT, AND YOU KNOW IT…

        BY THE WAY, TRUMP MAY HAVE AN ARREST WARRANT ISSUED. BUT, WHEN IT COMES TO THIS, HOW DO YOU LEGALLY GET EVIDENCE SEEN?? IF THEY ARREST TRUMP, HE CAN SUBMIT THE EVIDENCE OF EVERYTHING… THAT IS PART OF THE PLAN. YOU DON’T KNOW ANYTHING, BECAUSE YOU ARE NOTHING BUT A SHILL, A MARXIST PROPAGANDIST. IF YOU’RE NOT, YOU DON’T HAVE THE GRAY MATTER TO FIGURE STUFF OUT ON YOUR OWN. IN OTHER WORDS, YOU’RE A SHEEPLE. I SUPPOSE YOU STILL WEAR A MASK, EH? EVEN IN THE CAR? FIGURED AS MUCH…

        DO THE RESEARCH. EVERYTHING IS ONT THERE TO BE FOUND. IF YOU CAN’T OR DON’T WANT TO, THEN SUFFER THE CONSEQUENCES OF YOUR OWN DEMISE.

        YOU WILL BE ONE WHO IS LEFT BEHIND. SUFFERING THE FATE YOU CHOOSE. IT WILL BE YOUR FAULT, AND YOUR FAULT ALONE.
        MY MISSION IS TO OPEN EYES TO THE TRUTH, YOU DON’T CARE ABOUT THAT, BECAUSE “YOU CAN’T HANDLE THE TRUTH…”!!!!

        “Q” IS NOT A CONSPIRACY THEORY. YOU’LL FIND OUT, BECAUSE THE STORM IS ABOUT TO HIT, AND THOSE WHO WILL NOT WAKE UP TO THE TRUTH, WILL SUFFER TREMENDOUS PROBLEMS, AND SOME WILL NOT, AND CANNOT HANDLE WHAT THEY ARE ABOUT TO SEE…. MANY, WILL END THEIR LIVES, BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT WILLING TO OPEN THEIR MINDS, AND SEE THE FACTS.
        ENJOY YOUR FATE…. I CAN ONLY TELL YOU FACTS… YOU CANNOT HANDLE THAT, SO, MOVE ALONG…. YOU WON’T BELIEVE ANYTHING, UNLESS THE DEMS, OR THE MEDIA TELL YOU TOO…. AND IT WILL END YOUR EXISTENCE, BECAUSE OF YOUR OWN IGNORANCE, AND LACK OF KNOWLEDGE…. BE WELL… WE WILL WIN, AND WE HAVE WON, ALREADY. PUTIN IS DESTROYING BIO-WEAPONS LABS IN UKRAINE, TAIWAN IS NEXT. THEIR MONEY LAUNDERING SYSTEM, AND HUMAN TRAFFICKING SYSTEM HAS BEEN DESTROYED. WAIT UNTIL YOU SEE WHAT YOU HAVE LET THEM GET AWAY WITH… I GUARANTEE YOU WILL WANT TO PUT A BULLET INTO EVERY ONE OF THEM, AND MAYBE YOURSELF… WHAT THEY HAVE DONE, THE EVIL THEY HAVE COMMITTED, TO THE CHILDREN, IS MORE THAN MOST AVERAGE PEOPLE, WILL BE ABLE TO HANDLE. NUT,. YOU WILL BE FORCED TO SEE IT. TRUTH ALWAYS WINS. TRUMP, IS TRUTH…. CHINA WILL END THOSE IN TAIWAN. THEY HAVE BEEN WORKING TOGETHER WITH MANY OTHER NATIONS, TO END THE DEEP STATE, AND THEY ARE IN TOTAL DISARRAY, AND LOSING EVERYTHING…. ENJOY THE RIDE. IT MAY BE YOUR LAST…

        David…that’s because using “lawfare” is a singular and corrupt tactic of democrats…..fair and square is not in their playbook or lexicon. Notice NONE of these “criminal court cases” amounted to shyt.

    The GOP is the right wing of the Marxist Democrat party!
