Trump news – live: Biden has privately said ex-president should be prosecuted, says report



Trump calls for Putin to release dirt on the Biden family

Joe Biden has said privately that he believes Donald Trump should be prosecuted over the 6 January attack on the US Capitol, according to a report.

Mr Biden told members of his inner circle late last year that the one-term president was a threat to democracy and action against him should be taken, according to New York Times.

Donald Trump’s son-in-law and former White House adviser Jared Kushner has appeared virtually before the House select committee investigating the January 6 Capitol riot. His testimony of him is said to have been “really valuable”.

The meeting comes as White House records turned over to the committee by the National Archives and Records Administration do not include any calls made or received by Mr Trump through the White House switchboard for eight hours that day. The panel is now probing whether Mr Trump or his advisers used untraceable “burner phones” to evade official record-keeping systems.

Meanwhile, Mr Trump’s bespoke social media platform Truth Social is reportedly in poor shape, with downloads falling by 93 per cent and user engagement low. The platform has been promoted as a censorship-free environment where his supporters can consort with each other free from sanctions imposed by “big tech”, but the president has yet to post on it and is said to have complained about his problems. to his advisers.

In other news, the former president has invited controversial Congressman Madison Cawthorn to speak at his upcoming rally in the representative’s home state of North Carolina, despite his recent admonishment by party leadership over comments about cocaine and orgies.

Mike Lindell says he has spent $35m trying to prove Trump won election

The businessman, who has been one of the biggest supporters of Mr Trump’s false claim that he beat Joe Biden, attended a rally for the one-term former president at the Michigan Stars Sports Center in Washington Township, Michigan, on Saturday.

Mr Trump is giving a rally speech in Michigan later on Saturday night.

Mr Lindell told CNBC in December that he had spent $25m trying to prove Mr Trump won, meaning he has shelled out a further $10m so far in 2022.

Mr Trump and his allies have lost more than 60 election challenge lawsuits filed in state and federal courts across the country, and the Supreme Court, which has three Trump appointees also refused to look at it.

Mr Biden told members of his inner circle late last year that the one-term president was a threat to democracy and action against him should be taken, according to New York Times.

Will Trump be charged for January 6?

The Senate acquitted former President Donald Trump last year of inciting the Capitol insurrection. But neither Trump nor any of his top advisers have faced charges over the attack in a court of law, and it’s uncertain if they ever will.

But increasingly, lawmakers on the House committee investigating the Jan. 6 assault are pressing Attorney General Merrick Garland to investigate Trump and his associates. They’ve been laying out possible crimes in at least one court filing and openly discussing others, all related to that day’s violent attack by Trump supporters looking to disrupt Congress’ formal certification of his reelection defeat of him.

Here’s a look at some of the suggested crimes floated by the House panel:
