‘Charges Are Near’: Top J6 Investigator Cites ‘Strong Evidence’ Of Trump’s ‘Criminal Conduct’ In Georgia Election Interference
Former U.S. Attorney Timothy Heaphy, the top staff investigator for the House probe into the Jan. 6 insurrection, told MSNBC’s Ari Melber that believes indictments are near following Georgia’s special grand jury probe into election interference in the state, citing “strong evidence” of criminality in Donald Trump’s attempt to overturn the 2020 election results.
“It seems clear” there “will be indictments in Georgia,” Heaphy said on “The Beat” on Friday. “I’m basing this on the facts,” he added. “There is strong evidence of a number of people committing both crimes in Georgia and federal crimes.”
Heaphy also explained that the House panel’s Jan. 6 probe determined that the violent riot at the Capitol was part of a determined “multipart plan” to prevent the peaceful transfer of power after the 2020 election.
The sophisticated plot to upend the election included an “angry mob … launched down Pennsylvania Avenue toward the Capitol,” Heaphy said, a clear reference to Donald Trump’s speech to his supporters before the siege to go to the Capitol and “fight like hell.”
“We made clear conclusions and very public criminal referrals” concerning Jan. 6, Heaphy explained, after the panel found “evidence of intent to disrupt the joint session, there was conspiratorial conduct, there may have been seditious conspiracy and other serious crimes.”
Heaphy said he believes the DOJ hasn’t yet acted because “they’re being really careful and really thorough.” But “the evidence is there” of criminal conduct, Heaphy added, including “strong evidence” of Trump’s aim to criminally “obstruct, impede or influence the joint session,” he noted.
