Why are the demoRats so avidly trying to stop President Trump from running again ? If he is re-elected, that would VOID all the work the demoRats have put forth into the DESTRUCTION of AMERICA because they know Trump would revert to the policies he put in place as President before, and make our country great again. (MAGA)
Whether you're dempRat or Republican, you cannot tell me you are happy with our country's economy as it is right now and that you wouldn't be happy to have it back like it was under Trumps presidency, if you say otherwise, YOU ARE LYING THROUGH YOUR TEETH..!
If the investigations into Trumps role in the Jan 6th "insurrection" is ANYTHING like the "Impeachment" hearings (led by adam schiff) then these hearings will more than likely be even MORE of a fiasco than the impeachments...After all, what would you expect from a "BI-Partison"?? committee made up of six democrats and two republican "never Trumpers", both of whom "HATE TRUMP"....BUT of course that won't stop adam schiff from lying and fabricating any or all of their "evidence". As he did before and I'm sure he will do the same this time, more so. The only difference, THE STAKES ARE A LOT HIGHER THIS TIME..!

Rep. Jamie Raskin said the Jan 6 committee found serious evidence implicating Trump in the riot.
He said it showed worse than incitement — the charge in Trump's second impeachment.

2022 is shaping up to be a legal nightmare for Trumpworld. Here's a timeline of upcoming court cases and legal obstacles.
Donald Trump and his allies are facing a flurry of legal challenges this year.
Investigations into his company's finances are ongoing, along with others related to January 6.Here are the dates to watch out for this year.
Former President Donald Trump has had a number of surprising legal victories ever since he left the White House — though his greatest potential battles are still looming.
But greater dangers loom. The Trump Organization is the subject of a sprawling investigation from the Manhattan district attorney's office and the New York attorney general's office into alleged financial misconduct. In Atlanta, Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis is weighing charges over his conduct in the 2020 election. Those investigations are proceeding as the Justice Department comes up on the five-year deadline to prosecute Trump over acts of possible obstruction that former Special Counsel Robert Mueller III scrutinized as part of his investigation into Russia's interference in the 2016 election.
Meanwhile, the Biden administration is sending a steady stream of Trump's White House records to the House committee investigating the January 6, 2021, attack on the Capitol. And Trump — along with many of his allies — face federal investigations and lawsuits stemming from the January 6 insurrection. Expect the judges in those cases to set court dates later this year.
While Trump mulls whether to run for president again in 2024, 2022 is shaping up to be a year of legal headaches for the former president and his associates. Here's a timeline of the threats Trumpworld faces.
The House committee investigating the January 6, 2021, Capitol Riot has evidence against former President Donald Trump showing "a lot more than incitement," one of its members said.
Rep. Jamie Raskin, a Maryland Democrat, said the evidence against Trump was more serious than was known before.
"The select committee has found evidence about a lot more than incitement here, and we're gonna be laying out the evidence about all of the actors who were pivotal to what took place on Jan. 6," Raskin said during an interview Monday with Washington Post Live.

The committee's first public hearings is due on Thursday evening, where the panel plans to reveal the evidence that it has gathered on the key individuals and events behind the riot over more than a year.
kin told the Post that the panel had evidence of "concerted planning and premeditated activity" and that this week's hearing would "tell the story of a conspiracy to overturn the 2020 presidential election and block the transfer of power."
Asked if Trump was at the center of that conspiracy, Raskin said "I think that Donald Trump and the White House were at the center of these events."
"That's the only way really of making sense of them all," he said.
He noted, however, that "people are going to have to make judgments themselves about the relative role that different people played."
Trump was acquitted by the Senate on incitement charges in February 2021, after the upper chamber failed to reach the two-thirds majority required to convict. Seven Republican senators sided with the Democratic caucus in finding the president guilty, enough for an absolute majority but too few for a conviction under impeachment rules.
That trial focused on an incendiary speech Trump delivered to supporters before they marched on the Capitol and temporarily halted the ceremony certifying Joe Biden's victory, as well disinformation from Trump wrongly claiming that the 2020 election was stolen by fraud.
The committee's activities have gone beyond this, per statements by Raskin and other members, and the hearings are likely to make a much broader argument about Trump's culpability.
Insider contacted a spokesperson for Trump for comment.
