Earlier on Monday, former President Donald Trump responded to the announcement of criminal referrals made by the House select committee investigating the Capitol protest of Jan. 6, 2021.
“These folks don’t get it that when they come after me, people who love freedom rally around me. It strengthens me. What doesn’t kill me makes me stronger. Americans know that I pushed for 20,000 troops to prevent violence on Jan. 6 and that I went on television and told everyone to go home….” Trump wrote on Truth Social.
Despite the fact that the panel recommends that the Department of Justice pursue Trump, the DOJ is not obligated to follow the recommendations of the congressional panel.
If you believe Donald Trump is going to prison I have a Stacey Abrams diet book to sell you.

The former president announced last month that he would seek reelection in 2024. Trump served as president from early 2017 to early 2021. Despite Trump’s popularity among conservatives, he could face challengers during the GOP primary. In addition, House Democrats are pushing legislation that would stop Trump from retaking office.
The legislation accuses Trump of participating in an “insurrection” and cites the 14th Amendment to make him ineligible to run again.
Despite the constant attacks from RINOs and Democrats and the faux conservatives that fought with all of their might against Donald Trump’s first run for the presidency, Trump is determined to regain his position in the White House.
As the sharks from the defeated Never-Trump camp — like Ben Shapiro and William Kristol, who preferred Hillary Clinton in 2016 — seek to regain control of the Republican Party, the America First movement and its millions of loyal supporters continue to show its resolve to defeat the stolen mannerisms and repackaged “Trump light” attempts to hijack Trump’s MAGA movement.
Most conservatives — though not all — credit Trump for bringing a dying Republican Party back to a position where it was able to, despite the sabotage from lingering liberals and neoconservatives, fight back against an unyielding leftist assault on America and its values.
Donald Trump was elected because he was perceived by millions of voters to be a fighter. And while many on both sides of the aisle again attempt to stop him from succeeding in his run to challenge the left’s control over the federal government, it is clear that the fight has not left the former president.
