Speaking to CNN, one former Donald Trump adviser told the network that the former president is privately in fear that he may face charges over the insurrection at the U.S. Capitol on January 6.
According to CNN, the advisor claims that Trump has been quiet since leaving the White House due to his concern about possible charges.
“He’s worried about it,” the adviser reportedly said.
While Trump may have been acquitted, Mitch McConnell claimed publicly that the former president isn’t in the clear yet, implying that he may face criminal charges for inciting the insurrection.
When asked by a reporter last month if investigators were looking Trump’s role in the attack, acting US Attorney Michael Sherwin had said, “We’re looking at all actors here and anyone that had a role and, if the evidence fits the elements of the crime, they’re going to be charged.”
This week, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced the launching of an independent investigation into the attack.
