Trump: ‘The DOJ Has Become An Absolute Weapon For The Democrats!’

Trump suppressed the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol with the National Guard:

Former President Donald Trump alerted his followers on Truth Social on July 18 that he has been “sent a letter… stating that I am the TARGET of the January 6th Grand Jury investigation, and giving me a very short 4 days to report to the Grand Jury, which almost always means an Arrest and Indictment.” While it is unclear what the nature of the indictment might actually be, what is clear is that while Trump was in office, he and his administration, including the Department of Defense acting under his authority, unquestionably suppressed the riot at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021 as Congress considered legal election challenges on the floor of the House and Senate. According to the National Guard, on Jan. 6, 2021, 1,110 National Guardsmen were sent in on top of the more than 300 who were there that very day, plus 6,200 in the days that followed, by Miller, who acted under the authority of former President Trump to restore order to the Capitol. Whatever was on the ground both prior to and after the riot began were all acting under the President’s authority. Everything Trump might be indicted for will be things either he had the authority to do as President and Commander in Chief, or had a First Amendment right to challenge the results of the election. No where is there any allegation he interfered with suppressing the riot. Because Trump suppressed it.
