‘Compelling evidence’ Donald Trump committed crimes, Jan 6 hearings reveal

Published

on

As the January 6 hearings continue, some experts believe there is ‘compelling evidence’ Donald Trump did in fact commit crimes

Speaking to the Guardian, ex-justice department lawyers say the hearings could lead to charges against the former president, including conspiracy to obstruct an official proceeding or defrauding the United States.

Following the January 20-20 election, Trump did everything he could to discredit the result, and prevent Biden’s rise to power.

The investigative panel is planning to hold six hearings in total, analysing what Republican Liz Cheney labels as Trump’s “sophisticated seven-part plan” to overturn the election result.

The findings so far indicate Trump was told repeatedly by top aides and cabinet officials the election was NOT stolen, and these claims were “complete bullshit”.

But Trump persisted despite all of this advice, pushing ahead with the support of key allies including ex-personal attorney Rudy Giuliani.

Trump teases 2024 Presidential run

Former President Donald Trump has made his first appearance since the January 6 hearings kicked off.  He appeared in true Trump style with a bold speech to religious conservatives at the Faith & Freedom Coalition’s annual conference in Nashville.

Trump labeled the January 6 hearings as a “theatrical production of partisan political fiction” and insisted he is innocent, despite damning evidence against him.

“What you’re seeing is a complete and total lie. It’s a complete and total fraud… It was a simple protest that got out of hand.”

He also commented Mike Pence, who was Vice President at the time of the Capitol riots. He told the crowd “Mike did not have the courage to act”.

Referring once again to his allegations of election fraud and Pence’s so-called failure to act.

At the recent rally, Trump also announced his intention to run for president speaking of the ‘hatred’ continuously expressed by those he calls ‘the radical left‘.

So what are Trump’s key priorities if he does run for President of the United States again?

“He wants to exbunge what happened in 2020…He wants to have a dominant position…He wants to clear the field…

I don’t think there’s any lack of desire or intent on Trump’s part to run for President in 2024″

Twitter users have been finding it hard to search for information on the social media platform due to an explosion of pornographic spam.

While thousands of protests against extended lockdowns, a digital bot army has roared into action on Twitter, with long-dormant Chinese language accounts suddenly tweeting links to escort services and other adult content.

Anyone trying to track the spontaneous protest movement on Twitter complained about the deluge of spam pornographic content making flooding the search for information.

The China protests come at a time when Twitter’s content and moderation teams have been pared back drastically following Elon Musk’s $44 billion takeover of the social media giant.

Twitter, along with other international social media services like Facebook, Snapchat and Instagram, is blocked by Beijing’s internet censors within Mainland China.

Biden silence on China protests

Published

on

As citizens across China revolt against the country’s “zero Covid” policy, the White House issued a statement about the growing protests.

“‘We’ve long said everyone has the right to peacefully protest, in the United States and around the world,’ a White House National Security Council spokesperson said in a statement.

‘This includes in the [People’s Republic of China.]’

“‘Zero COVID is not a policy we are pursuing here,’ the spokesperson said.

‘And as we’ve said, we think it’s going to be very difficult for the People’s Republic of China to be able to contain this virus through their zero COVID strategy.’”

Commentators have noted that the statement came from the White House, and not President Biden himself.

Demonstrators are calling on President Joe Biden to take a stance and publicly support their cause.

The protests have continued despite numerous attempts by the Chinese government to quell them.
