Evidence Shows Trump Knew His Plot Was Corrupt

Aaron Blake: “At this point, the Jan. 6 committee’s hearings might as well be one big criminal referral to the Justice Department. And to make the case that Donald Trump and his allies broke the law, the committee has had to establish that they were acting corruptly — i.e., that they were likely to have known that their scheme was wrong and pursued it anyway.”

“To do that, the committee in its last two hearings has focused on two matters: that those involved in the push to overturn the election a) knew that their efforts probably were illegal and b) that they were told repeatedly that their claims of voter fraud were bogus.”

New York Times: Despite growing evidence, a prosecution of Trump would face challenges.
