The House January 6th Committee has approved criminal referrals for former President Donald Trump and conservative attorney John Eastman for their roles in attempting to overturn the 2020 election. The committee has referred Trump and Eastman for possible violations of several criminal statutes, including obstructing an official proceeding of the US government, conspiring to defraud the US government, making false statements to the federal government, and inciting or aiding an insurrection. These referrals go to the Department of Justice for further investigation and potential prosecution. Some have expressed doubt and cynicism about the chances of Trump facing consequences, noting the unprecedented nature of charging a former American president. However, the committee's action marks a significant step in holding Trump accountable for his actions on January 6th, and maybe this will actually go somewhere.
