On Saturday night, former President Donald Trump called on his supporters to organize massive protests in several cities in case prosecutors act against him. He also said he would offer pardons to those accused of the Jan. 6, 2021, assault on Capitol Hill that he incited in a last-ditch bid to stay in power.

“If these radical, vicious, racist prosecutors do something wrong or illegal, I hope that we will have the largest protests in this country that we have ever had in Washington, DC, in New York, in Atlanta and elsewhere, because our country and our elections are corrupt,” he told an audience at a rally in Conroe, Texas, reading from teleprompters mounted on either side of his lectern.

A few minutes later, he claimed that his supporters who stormed the Capitol building, assaulting police as they entered, were not being treated “fairly” and that if he ran for the White House again and won: “If you require pardons, we will forgive him.”

The 80-minute performance, though riddled with familiar lies from Trump about being “stolen” from his re-election in November 2020, was notable for numerous references to the various investigations into him.

“They’re trying to put me in jail,” he said. “These prosecutors are vicious and horrible people. They are racist and very sick. They are mentally ill. They persecute me without any protection of my rights by the Supreme Court or most other courts.”

New York State Attorney General Letitia James has been conducting a civil investigation of her family business, while the Manhattan District Attorney has been conducting a criminal investigation.

Meanwhile, the Fulton County, Georgia, district attorney has formed a special grand jury just to focus on Trump’s attempt to force state officials to “find” enough votes to overturn his loss of that state to the Democrat. Joe Biden in 2020.

And the January 6th House select committee has been subpoenaing more and more former and current advisers to Trump to determine their precise role in the events of that day, while the Justice Department confirmed last week that it is investigating at least one element of Trump’s scheme to stay in power: the submission of false Trump “colectors” in states won by Biden.

The Trump White House and campaign advisers at the time openly pushed for the fraudulent lists to give Vice President Mike Pence the ability to cite the competing lists as a reason to declare Trump the winner and give him a second term.

However, Pence refused to go along with the plan and instead actively sabotaged the false voter scheme by crafting new language to ensure that false lists were excluded.

A year ago, Trump became the first US president to refuse to hand over power peacefully to his successor. He spent weeks attacking the legitimacy of the November 2020 contest that he lost. Hours after the polls closed and it appeared that Biden would be the winner, Trump claimed that he had indeed won a “landing” and that his victory was being “stealed”. Those falsehoods continued with a series of botched trials contesting the results in a handful of states.

After the Electoral College voted on Dec. 14, making Biden’s victory official, Trump resorted to a last-minute plan to pressure his own vice president to give Trump the pick during the congressional pro forma certification of the United States. election results on January 6.

Trump asked his supporters to come to Washington that day and told the thousands who showed up that they should march to Capitol Hill to intimidate Pence into doing what Trump wanted. “When you catch someone in a fraud, you can follow very different rules,” Trump said.

The crowd of supporters stormed the building and chanted “Hang Mike Pence” when the vice president failed to comply with Trump’s orders. The riot left five dead, including a Capitol Police officer, with four other officers taking their own lives in the following weeks and months.

Although the House impeached Trump for inciting the attack, all but seven Senate Republicans, led by Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, chose not to convict him, allowing Trump to continue his political career even as he is targeted. of various investigations.
