DOJ Already Has Enough Evidence To Prosecute Trump: Attorney

Donald Trump

Appearing on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Friday, Attorney George Conway declared that the first public hearing by the House Select Committee showed that the Department of Justice already has enough evidence to charge Donald Trump for his role in the Jan. 6 attack on the US Capitol.

Conway said Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) did a brilliant job laying out evidence that Trump had a “seven-part plan” to overturn his election loss that culminated in the deadly insurrection.

“This was a masterful prosecutorial presentation by Rep. Cheney,” Conway said. “It was brilliantly done. What it did was it tied together all the various strands of what Donald Trump caused and what he did and his criminal intent. His intent, criminal intent established by people who worked for him, people who were loyal to him, such as Bill Barr, [Jason] Miller, Ivanka and people who worked for the vice president. It was compelling, it was chilling. The videos were chilling, and it was — I think it is going to be historic.”

“I think we often forget, though, it’s not just that the audience out there, people who turn on Fox News, turn it off, don’t read the newspaper and don’t actually expose themselves to things they disagree with,” Conway explained. “There’s an audience at 9th and Pennsylvania that wants to know, or ought to want to know, is this a triable criminal case?”

He added: “I’m hoping that audience was watching closely. I think if they watched what happened last night, if the hearings are continually as high quality as what we saw last night, they’re going to conclude, yeah, this is a triable case.”
