Conservative legal professional George Conway on Sunday accused former President Donald Trump of main a “multifaceted criminal conspiracy” geared toward shutting down a authentic election and overthrowing democracy.
Conway instructed Tapper that no new “bombshells” are required. All lawmakers must do is “lay out the things that what we have seen come out over the last 17 months and lay it out in an orderly and compelling fashion,” he defined.
“The fact of the matter is … this was an attempted coup; this was an attempt to overthrow democracy,” Conway stated. “It was an attempt to stop, dead in its tracks, on Jan. 6, the peaceful transition of power — and that’s a coup,” he added.
“It was a multi-faceted criminal conspiracy led by the president of the United States to stop — by whatever means necessary — the proper counting of electoral votes under the 12th Amendment,” Conway declared.
The House choose committee hearings would be the fruits of detailed investigative work that concerned greater than 1,000 interviews with witnesses and the examination of 125,000 paperwork. It would be the most detailed examination thus far of the occasions that led as much as the violent riot.
After the hearings, the committee can refer instances for prosecution, but it surely’s as much as the Justice Department to determine whether or not to file expenses.
