Donald Trump former president of the United state has reacted to a panel vote, enabling the Justice Department to press criminal charges against him, for the role he played in instigating the attack on Capitol building by his supporters on January 6, 2021.
Reacting to the move by the Panel, Donald Trump stated that the actions of the panel strengthen him.
According to him, he said “these folks don’t get it that when they come after me, people who love freedom rally around me. It strengthens me,” Trump said on Truth Social.
He added that the Democrats on the panel recommended that the Justice Department charge him with criminal charges because they want to stop his presidential campaign for 2024.
Trump also compared the panel’s move to charge him with the crimes to his second impeachment, which ended with the US Senate failing to obtain enough votes to convict him.
“The people understand that the Democratic Bureau of Investigation, the DBI, are out to keep me from running for president because they know I’ll win and that this whole business of prosecuting me is just like impeachment was – a partisan attempt to sideline me and the Republican Party,” he said.
He also defended himself and claimed that he “pushed for 20,000 troops to prevent violence on January 6, and that I went on television and told everyone to go home.”
