Donald Trump’s been under investigation since he first ran for president.
And at every turn they have all been shown to be politically motivated witch hunts.
Now the FBI just exonerated Donald Trump of this serious criminal charge.
Democrats and some legal analysts claim prosecutors can charge Donald Trump with inciting the January 6 riot at the Capitol with his speech to a rally crowd that morning.
That claim – as well as the idea this was some kind of insurrection to overthrow the government – was shown to be absurd in the federal government’s own court filings against one of the rioters.
On June 11 federal agents arrested Robert Morss at his home in Pennsylvania.
The court filing stated the federal authorities confiscated a “Don’t Tread on Me” flag and other household items.
One piece of “evidence” the feds seized was a completed LEGO toy set of the U.S. Capitol.
The Hill reported:
According to the court filing dated July 2, law enforcement recovered clothing and other items from Morss’s home that match what he carried on Jan. 6. Among the items were a “’Don’t Tread on Me’ flag, a neck gaiter, a military utility bag, a black tourniquet, and military fatigues.”
In addition, “law enforcement also recovered a fully constructed U.S. Capitol Lego set,” prosecutors wrote.
Federal authorities confiscating a children’s toy set that they will eventually introduce as evidence came off as preposterous.
And if prosecutors use the toy set as proof that Morss intended to riot at the Capitol ahead of Trump’s rally then by definition Trump could not have incited the riot with his speech that day.
Morss faces several serious charges that day including violence against police.
The Hill also reports:
The Department of Justice said last month that Morss led “an assault on police” and organized support from other rioters on the lower west terrace of the Capitol.
He faces nine charges in connection to the riots, including assaulting, resisting, or impeding certain officers or employees; civil disorder; robbery of the personal property of the United States and obstruction of an official proceeding.
Whatever violence happened on January 6 should be prosecuted.
There was an ugly riot, and no society can tolerate politically motivated violence.
But what took place on January 6 was not a white supremacist insurrection nor was it an attempt to overthrow American democracy.
Many Americans will look at the FBI seizing toy LEGO sets and rounding up people on January 6 that walked into the Capitol and wonder why this level of effort isn’t put into rounding up the Black Lives Matter and antifa insurrectionists that attacked government buildings for several months in 2020.
