Trump’s intervention and DOJ demands are strongest evidence of sedition yet

Donald Trump’s contacts with the Department of Justice, as evidenced today, Thursday, June 23, will be some of the strongest evidence of sedition against the United States should the DOJ ever indict him.

Acting Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen testified that Donald Trump called him virtually every day from December 23 to January 3. Trump wanted a signed letter saying the DOJ had found fraud and Trump was angry that the DOJ had “not done enough” to find fraud. Trump wanted a special counsel appointed for the specific purpose of finding voter fraud. Trump wanted a lawsuit filed with the SCOTUS (which is not possible, he has no original jurisdiction). Trump also said the Department had an “obligation” to declare the election fraudulent. The testimony was that every moment Trump was restless and insisting that he win the election.

Rosen testified that “the Justice Department declined” to issue the letter finding fraud because the request was inconsistent with the facts and the law as found by the Justice Department itself. Moreover, although former acting attorney general Rosen did not testify on this point, Donald Trump submitted daily requests as if the Justice Department was his private lawyer and not the department representing the country. Trump had every right to demand that his own campaign attorneys find this “fraud” and file these cases. He had no right to use the Ministry of Justice. Trump even used Jeffery Clark, the head of the DOJ’s environmental division, who wouldn’t have to investigate anything other than environmental issues, obviously. But Trump didn’t care. He wanted the DOJ, anyone in the DOJ, to act as his lawyer.

Although AG Barr did the right thing in denying that fraud had taken place and Rosen stood his ground, Trump had grown accustomed to using the DOJ as his own law firm. If Barr had refused to act as such from day one, Trump probably wouldn’t have made the attempts.

Anyway, back to the testimony, Trump continued to pressure the DOJ. The Committee has already proven that Trump knew there was no fraud in the election and yet the pressure continued. Rosen’s testimony could not have been clearer:

So, at that time, Donald Trump demanded that a department of the United States government join his plot and commit sedition. It is simply devastating.

Additionally, as if the case needed greater impact, the Committee made sure to produce evidence of the damage Trump’s actions have done to the country as a whole:

While it remains to be seen whether or not the DOJ will charge Trump with sedition against the United States, this would be one of the most critical pieces of evidence in such a case. Donald Trump was fighting his own government, seeking his own justice, following the Constitution. You will not find a clearer definition of sedition.
