On Sunday, former Obama White House Attorney General Eric Holder said that President Donald Trump should be held accountable for the Jan. 6, 2021 Capitol protest.
In an interview on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Holder was asked if he thought existing A.G. Merrick Garland was being forceful enough in pursuing so-called rioters and President Trump.
“Nobody knows,” Holder continued. “I mean, you know, I have a lot of faith in Merrick and the people at DOJ. We won’t really know how aggressive they’ve been until they’re on camera announcing whether or not that will indict certain individuals.”
“And here is my prediction: at some point, people at the DOJ, perhaps that prosecutor from Atlanta, will have to make a decision about whether or not they want to indict Donald Trump.”
Brennan then asked, “Would you do it?”
“I think there’s going to be enough fact-based information. I think there’s also going to be a lot of evidence of intent,” Holder added.
“And then the question is, what impact would such an indictment have? I’m a constitutionalist. My first inclination was not to indict the former president because of the potential for … how divisive it would be if he were indicted. But given everything we’ve learned, I believe he has to be held accountable.”
This comes at a time when the truth about January 6th is coming out and most Americans are aware that Democrats are playing politics.
For example, on Tuesday, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) was caught doctoring material he presented in the Monday evening hearing, exactly as Schiff did during the impeachment inquiry of President Donald Trump in 2019.
The committee was discussing whether to charge former White House director of staff Mark Meadows with contempt of Congress for refusing to hand over materials that Trump claimed executive privilege over. On Tuesday, the full House voted to hold Meadows in contempt and recommend him to the Department of Justice for prosecution.
According to The Federalist, Schiff tampered with text messages he offered to the committee, altering their wording and presenting a false impression in a visual presentation.
