Former President Donald Trump o Sunday called for Democratic Congressman Jamaal Bowman to be thrown in jail after being caught on camera triggering a fire alarm during a crucial U.S. funding vote.

Trump urged charges of “obstruction of an official proceeding,” drawing a direct parallel to the legal troubles of individuals linked to the January 6 riot, and went so far as to argue that Bowman’s actions were more severe than the infamous insurrection.

Taking to Truth Social, Trump raised questions about whether Congressman Bowman would be held accountable for his “dangerous” act of activating the main fire alarm system, which he claimed was aimed at disrupting a Congressional vote in D.C.

“Will Congressman Jamal Bowman be prosecuted and imprisoned for very dangerously pulling and setting off the main fire alarm system in order to stop a Congressional vote that was going on in D.C.,” Trump wrote on Truth Social.

“His egregious act is covered on tape, a horrible display of nerve and criminality. It was a very dangerous “Obstruction of an Official Proceeding,” the same as used against our J-6 prisoners. Actually, his act may have been worse. HE MUST SUFFER THEIR SAME FATE. WHEN WILL HIS TRIAL BEGIN???”

Taking to Truth Social, Trump raised questions about whether Congressman Bowman would be held accountable for his “dangerous” act of activating the main fire alarm system, which he claimed was aimed at disrupting a Congressional vote in D.C.

The incident, captured on tape, unfolded at the Cannon House Office Building on Saturday, where Bowman was observed triggering the fire alarm. In response, Bowman released a statement later that evening, vehemently denying any intent to delay the vote and explaining that he believed activating the alarm would open a locked door.

“This was not me, in any way, trying to delay any vote,” he said.
