On Monday, erstwhile President Donald Trump provided his response, following the announcement of criminal referrals made by the House Select Committee, which examined the incident that occurred on January 6, 2021.
Standing Strong Despite It All
Despite the fact the panel suggested the Department of Justice pursues legal action against Trump, the DOJ is not compelled to comply with the recommendations made by the congressional subcommittee.
The fourth and final statute we invoke for referral is Title 18 Section 2383. This statute applies to anyone, who incites, assists, or engages in insurrection against the United States, and anyone who “gives aid or comfort” to an insurrection. pic.twitter.com/pgEALKK2Vp

Trump stated on Truth Social that his opponents do not understand when they attack him, and people who value their freedom rally in his support, it makes him stronger.
He went on to say everything that didn’t kill him made him stronger. The citizens of the United States are aware he advocated for the deployment of 20,000 additional troops to avert riots on January 6. He went on mainstream TV and instructed everyone to go home.

These two Republican politicians, Adam Kinzinger of Illinois, as well as Liz Cheney of Wyoming, both voted for the impeachment of Trump in the wake of the riot on January 6.
The committee that investigated the events of January 6 included a number of Democrats, as well as two Republican lawmakers who have been vocal opponents of Trump.
Impeachment and Future Prospects
Despite the fact that the House of Representatives voted to indict Trump after the incident that occurred on January 6, 2021, Trump was ultimately exonerated. The number of senators who voted to convict him was less than the minimum required for conviction.
The vote in the Senate took place after Trump had already resigned from his position as president.
Joe Biden, a Democrat, defeated Donald Trump in the race for reelection to be the president of the United States in 2020. Trump, who served as president from the beginning of 2017 until the beginning of 2021, officially stepped down for Biden.
The sitting president of the country, Joe Biden, seemed to suggest last month that he will run for president again in 2024.
Even though Trump continues to have significant support among conservatives, he may wind up having to contend with rivals during the primary election for the Republican presidential nomination.
A number of Democrats in the House of Representatives are supporting a piece of legislation that would prevent Trump from ever again taking office.
The bill claims Trump is unable to serve as president again because of his participation in an “insurrection,” using the 14th Amendment of the United States Constitution.
Together with more than three dozen initial voting members, Democratic Representative David Cicilline of Rhode Island is leading the charge to advance the proposal.
According to a press statement issued by Cicilline, he stated it is abundantly evident that Trump participated in an uprising on January 6, 2021, with the purpose of overthrowing the legitimate and fair outcome of the 2020 election.
