The Capitol Assault Committee asks the US Congress to ban Trump from being president again

The parliamentary committee investigating the assault on the United States Capitol has recommended in its final report that Congress prevent Donald Trump from running for the White House again through a legislative mechanism.

In the report, published this morning, the Committee Calls for Impeachment of Trump for Trying to Overturn Presidential Election of 2020 and points to him as the “central” cause of what happened on January 6, 2021, “which many others followed” to carry out the assault on the Capitol.

In the 845 pages of this report, which consists of eight chapters and more than 1,000 interviews and documents, reference is made to a Magna Carta amendment of the United States that states that those who have given “aid or comfort to the enemies of the Constitution” can be disabled to hold state or federal office in the future.

In fact, in the report, this Committee is very clear and direct in pointing Trump as directly guilty of the assault and recommends that the United States Congress stop any attempt by the magnate to be president again.

“The Select Committee has referred Donald Trump and others for possible prosecution (…) for aiding and providing aid and comfort to an insurrection. The committee also notes that Donald Trump was impeached by a majority in the House of Representatives for inciting an insurrection, with 57 votes in the Senate for his conviction,” the recommendation reads.

For this to be a fact, the Committee asks to “congressional committees with jurisdiction” to consider the creation of a “formal mechanism” that could prevent those who violate the fourteenth amendment of the Constitution from holding federal or state office.

The report also denounces the absence of an adequate security device the day he was going to certify the victory of Joe Biden in the 2020 elections and recommends that the presence of the Police be equalized in special sessions that bring together the two chambers, such as the inauguration of the head of state or the debates on the state of the nation.

This report comes three days after the Committee, in its last public hearing, called on the Department of Justice to prosecute Trump for multiple crimes, including the obstruction of an official procedure, conspiracy to defraud the United States, conspiracy to make false statements, as well as collaborate in an insurrection; since, in his opinion, nothing that happened that day would have taken place without his participation.

In this hearing it was detailed how trump attempted to coerce, pressure, or cajole to anyone who did not give in to their attempt to prevent their defeat in the presidential elections, despite knowing that many of these maneuvers were illegal, for which they consider that they are ultimately responsible for the “insurrection” with their lies to public opinion.

Of the 850 pages that the report occupies, almost 600 include the testimonies of the interviews that the committee conducted with more than a thousand people, some broadcast on television during prime time and many others behind closed doors.

One of the most publicized was the one made to Cassidy Hutchinson, who was an aide to former Trump chief of staff Mark Meadows, and who stated that the former president knew that many protesters carried weapons and that he even tried to grab the wheel of the presidential limousine to go to the Capitol.
