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



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″

Israeli soldiers use water cannons to stop protestors from breaking into PM’s house



Dramatic scenes in Israel as protestors take to the streets demanding a controversial judicial reform plan be scrapped

Dramatic scenes are unfolding in Israel following news the nation’s leader Benjamin Netanyahu has fired his defence minister.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu fired Defense Minister Yoav Gallant on Sunday after Gallant called for a halt to a controversial judicial reform plan.

Gallant, a lawmaker from Netanyahu’s right-wing Likud party, broke ranks on Saturday by publicly urging Netanyahu to suspend the legislation.

He said, “The growing rift in our society is penetrating the Israel Defense Forces and security agencies. This poses a clear, immediate, and tangible threat to the security of the state. I will not allow this.”

His dismissal marks the largest public fracture in Netanyahu’s coalition government over the proposed reforms that have sparked mass protests and even dissent from some in the nation’s revered military.

Others in Netanyahu’s party have begun to waver: A top lawmaker echoed the defense chief’s call to pause the contested judicial overhaul on Sunday.

Dissent from the premier’s own party and cabinet has compounded months of unprecedented mass protests by Israelis who fear the package of reforms could endanger court independence.

Netanyahu, who is on trial on graft charges that he denies, says the overhaul will balance out the branches of government.

A key bill effectively giving his religious-nationalist coalition more control over the appointment of judges is expected to be brought for ratification this week in the Knesset, where he and his allies wield 64 out of 120 seats.

But how – or even if – that as-yet-unscheduled vote will proceed has been thrown into question by Likud dissenters. #trending #featured
