Justice Department Says Militia Group Cannot Blame Donald Trump for Entering Capitol on January 6
The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) is arguing the founder and members of the Oath Keepers militia group who entered the U.S. Capitol on January 6 cannot blame former President Donald Trump for their actions.
DOJ lawyers argued Trump lacked the authority to authorize an attack on the Capitol, which should prevent Oath Keepers’ lawyers from blaming the former President.
President Trump did not have the authority to permit or authorize a conspiracy to forcibly oppose the authority of the government or the execution of the laws of the United States, nor could he have lawfully sanctioned the attack on the United States Capitol on Jan. 6 or any of the other criminal conduct allegedly perpetrated by defendants.
Since this is exactly what the JAN6 Kangaroo Kommittee is “investigating,” and which they’ve asking the DOJ to investigate, I think the “insurrection” prosecutors just screwed. Politically speaking.
