Judge Rules Trump ‘Likely’ Committed Crime

A federal judge ruled that former President Donald Trump and his legal adviser John Eastman “more likely than not” engaged in criminal conduct in their efforts to overturn the 2020 election.

The civil case stemmed from subpoenas from the House Jan. 6 committee. U.S. District Judge David Carter, a Clinton appointee, handed down a 44-page ruling about whether portions of Eastman’s private correspondence should be withheld from the committee.

“Based on the evidence, the Court finds it more likely than not that President Trump corruptly attempted to obstruct the Joint Session of Congress on January 6, 2021,” Carter wrote.

“The illegality of the plan was obvious,” he wrote. “Our nation was founded on the peaceful transition of power, epitomized by George Washington laying down his sword to make way for democratic elections. Ignoring this history, President Trump vigorously campaigned for the Vice President to single-handedly determine the results of the 2020 election.”

Carter found sufficient evidence to determine that Trump likely committed at least two felonies: obstruction of an official proceeding and conspiracy to defraud the United States.

The judge ruled that ten of the documents in question were privileged and should be shielded from the committee, but Eastman must turn over the remaining 101 documents.

Neither Trump nor Eastman have been charged with a crime, but the ruling marks the first time a judge has declared a likelihood that Trump violated the law.

    Oh, c’mon, man!
    When are you going to look at the mountains of proof and sworn affidavits, and damning videos SHOWING corruption, dumping mail, multiple duplicate votes, dead voters, and on and on and on and on. And numbers and counts changing in the middle of the night, in REAL TIME & witnessed live on TV????
    Hmmm! A “Clinton appointee”!…there’s your rat in the water right there. The “3-B Gang” (Billy, Barack, Bidum) have a racket going that is beyond description. If ALL their d—ed corruption ever saw the light of day, the whole earth would flip on it’s axis.

      Trump attempted to obstruct an official proceeding and conspired to do so with others. Yes, he did do that, but criminally? I don’t think so, given that he was trying to obstruct the certification of a clearly fraudulent vote count in numerous states while court challenged were still ongoing. (Even if not a single court allowed evidence to be presented, dismissing all cases on “standing”.) As to attempting to defraud the public, that would only be the case if he knew his arguments were false, which any thinking human being knows they are not.

    A Clinton judge, huh? I wonder if ‘the judge’ would say the same thing about the crimes committed by the Clintons?
