INVESTIGATE: Federal judge says Trump “more likely than not” committed a crime

U.S. Department of Justice

Earlier this month, the House’s bipartisan January 6th Select Committee said it had a “good faith” belief that Trump probably broke the law when he tried to stop Congress from certifying President Biden’s win. [1]

Now, a U.S. District Court judge has said that Trump “more likely than not” did just that. This may be the first time in history that a federal judge determined a president, while in office, appeared to commit a crime. [2]

Attorney General Merrick Garland and the DOJ cannot look the other way on this. If they do, they’ll tacitly give Trump – and all future presidents – a green light to abuse their power and undermine our democracy for their personal gain.

Because investigations are sensitive and people are entitled to the presumption of innocence, much of the DOJ's work is done confidentially. This means that there may be investigative efforts underway that the public doesn’t know about yet.

But whether or not this is the case – with all that is now a matter of public record, Attorney General Garland needs to hear that we’re counting on the DOJ to investigate, uphold the rule of law, and hold anyone who tried to subvert our elections accountable.

If you agree that the DOJ must launch a thorough and swift investigation into Donald Trump’s alleged criminal conduct, add your name today.

A federal judge has said that Donald Trump “more likely than not” committed a crime while attempting to overturn the 2020 election. The Department of Justice (DOJ) must investigate this serious claim, and if the evidence demands it, convene a grand jury to consider indicting Trump.
