The mob supporting Donald Trump sabotaged the United States Capitol in Washington D.C. on January 6.

The reason was evident, to overturn the election decision and make Joe Biden’s win futile.

The Committee Chairman Bennie G. Thompson along with the House committee investigating the January 6 attack on the Capitol is primarily focusing on the former President Donald Trump reported The Washington Times.

Hence, the committee is directing the Justice Department to open a criminal investigation against Donald Trump.

The Analysis of the January 6 attack on the Capitol

The 2020 presidential election was seeing a clear win, for now, President Joe Biden against Donald Trump.

The supporters of Donald Trump aimed to overturn the election poll by mobilizing the joint session of Congress assembled to count electoral votes.
As the rioters made their way in the building assaulting law enforcement officers and thrashing the building property for several hours. The police authorities had lawmakers and staff evacuated.
Just before the attack, pipe bombs were discovered near the complex.
Members of Congress barricaded themselves in the chamber, with one attacker being fatally shot by police while attempting to breach a barricade.

The attack was organized by Donald Trump on his “Save America” rally on the Ellipse where he was subjected to a false election and its irregularities.
His quoted
“If you don’t fight like hell, you’re not going to have a country anymore” in the speech.
This in turn provoked thousands of attendees who attacked the Capitol and Congress session.

House Committee to push the subject of criminal referral against Donald Trump

The instigation of Donald Trump to disrupt the preceding of the Capitol and finalizing the result of Joe Biden to be the next President has got much attention from the media.

The House Committee focuses on the major aspect of the whole event that why it took so long for Donald Trump to tell his supporters to stop.
Even though in a Twitter video later that afternoon, he told his supporters to “go home in peace”.
But the instigated mob had already created chaos and it couldn’t take back the attack on a democratic session.
As suggested by Chairman Thompson, the silence on the matter by the former President can be a relevant factor in pressing charges against him.

Conclusion

The fact that Donald Trump had the power to extinguish the situation but he still let that happen will make the decision of a criminal referral against him.
The inquiry suggests that Trump reportedly recorded several versions of a video before finally releasing the message.
Either way, it would create a huge stir in the political state of the USA
