The world needs a booming voice from on-high that can look down on pitiful humans such as Donald Trump in America and Vladimir Putin of Russia and tell them they have been found wanting. We will have to start with Donald Trump. He is the miscreant that courts can get their hands on. He has only the American Secret Service to protect him and they cannot protect him from being brought to justice in America. And there are those, in the U.S. and beyond, who think a trial is becoming a pleasant possibility.
Most of the credit for this belief is the hard work of the House of Representatives January 6 Committee. The star of that committee is republican representative Liz Cheney. She will never be elected again in Wyoming but she will certainly be remembered. All she hopes to achieve, she has been quoted as saying, is to ensure that the former president never again gets anywhere near the Oval Office.
While the House committee cannot legally try Mr. Trump, they are laying a trail for the Department of Justice in the U.S. to follow. The Biden Administration Attorney General has given no indication of what he might do about the House investigation. It is likely though that the Department will face considerable pressure—especially with the carefully orchestrated public hearings that are being broadcast on all the major American television channels, except Fox News.
Regrettably, we might miss Trump’s lawyer, former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, he will probably be disbarred before any trial of Trump. It was Giuliani who first advised Donald Trump to declare the last presidential election a ‘fraud.’
Across the U.S. lawyers are arguing whether there is a case against Trump or not. Sometimes it might be as simple as which is a democrat and which is a republican. The diehard republicans will carry-on regardless but the honest truth is that there is a case against Trump. The House committee has made that clear.
The committee has followed the trail through seven irrefutable steps and it will be a sad day for American justice if the Department of Justice does not act.
