Nearly six in 10 Americans think Trump should be charged with a crime for the January 6 riot

An increasing number of Americans believe Donald Trump should be charged with a felony in connection with his actions leading up to, surrounding and after the Capitol uprising of January 6, 2021.

As the January 6 select committee continues its public television proceedings, a new ABC News/Ipsos Survey released on Sunday, it found that 58 percent of Americans think they should be charged with a felony — up from April, when 52 percent of respondents felt so.

The June 17-18 poll found that 40 percent believe he should not be formally charged and 2 percent of pollsters have not responded.

In April, when the same poll was conducted, 42 percent of respondents thought Trump should not be charged and 6 percent did not answer.

The increase in those seeking a criminal referral for the former president comes after three days of public hearings played on nearly every newscast, which began in June and will continue throughout the month.

Nine panelists on the select committee — seven Democrats and two Republicans — shared never-before-seen footage of the riots, as well as pre-recorded and live interviews with former White House officials, presenting the case Trump knew he was doing. not win the 2020 presidential election.

Six in ten Americans think the survey is fair and impartial, while 38 percent say it isn’t — a big difference from the April poll, when the public was 40-40 percent split on the issue.

Just two months ago, the survey found that 20 percent of Americans had no opinion on the matter, but the public hearings must have changed that perception, as now only 2 percent of respondents skipped that question.

Democratic panelist Jamie Raskin urged on Sunday that Trump does not regret his actions and would “do it again.”

The Maryland congressman told NBC’s Meet the Press Sunday morning that he essentially “confessed” his role and crime through his continued denial that he lost the 2020 presidential election.

“Does he confess?” asked NBC anchor Chuck Todd.

“Yes,” Raskin replied. “He’s essentially saying, ‘Yeah, I did it and I’ll do it again,’ and that’s what we’ve been fighting all along.”

“If you promise impunity for attempted unconstitutional takeovers, which is a coup, then you are inviting it again in the future,” the Maryland Democratic congressman continued. “And to be a strong self-perpetuating self-respecting democracy, we must not let people decide that they are above the law and that they are more important than our constitutional processes.”

Rep.  Jamie Raskin, a member of the Jan. 6 panel, said on Sunday that Trump would act no differently if he could do the event again ahead of and on the day of Jan. 6, 2021.

Trump posted on his Truth Social media site on Sunday that he has “no doubt” he won the 2020 presidential election, saying his thoughts of it being rigged and stolen “have only gotten stronger”

The comments come the same morning Trump posted to his Truth Social account calling for the commission and its televised public hearings — insisting he has proof that he won the 2020 presidential election and saying that “in my mind’ no doubt that he was the Victor.

The highly partisan Unselects are trying to create a FAKE story for whatever reason, but only with malicious intent that ‘he (I) knew he lost the election.’ This is completely false,” Trump wrote on his account on Sunday.

“I had a feeling that the Election was EXCLUDED & STOLEN from the very beginning, and I’ve only grown stronger in that belief with time and vast amounts of additional evidence and evidence. In my mind I have, & HAVE NOT HAD ANY QUESTION, and MANY people would like to confirm that, but the Unselects don’t want to hear them…” he added.

The committee will hold its fourth of eight hearings on Tuesday and a fifth on Thursday, as the seven Democrats and two Republicans scramble to complete proceedings before the 2022 interim terms, which will likely send the House red.

The second hearing on Monday attempted to prove that Trump knew he had lost the 2020 election, yet persevered through his fraud claims.

“I have sooo many witnesses to all that is good, but the very partisan and one-sided Unselect Committee of Political Hacks has no interest in hearing or seeing them,” the former president wrote in a separate post.

“If they did, this witch hunt could all be over soon!”

The third hearing of a select committee on Thursday focused on Trump’s press campaign to get Vice President Mike Pence to stop Congress from certifying the results of the Electoral College.

The second was meant to show that Trump was fully aware that he really lost the election, but continued to push the “big lie” that there was widespread fraud and election fraud that resulted in Joe Biden’s victory.

Trump maintains to this day that he is the real winner.
