Diana DeGette, Joe Neguse, Jason Crow, Ed Perlmutter on Jan. 6 panel on Donald Trump


Former President Donald Trump should face criminal charges over the Jan. 6, 2021, insurrection, the U.S. House of Representatives panel investigating said Monday.

The recommendation, made to the Department of Justice at the panel’s final meeting, does not guarantee Trump will face charges. But it is a historic recommendation by the bipartisan panel.

The recommended charges include aiding an insurrection, conspiracy to make a false statement for the scheme to put forward fake electors, conspiracy to defraud the United States and obstructing an official proceeding. The panel also recommended lawyer John Eastman, a former visiting scholar of conservative thought and policy at the University of Colorado Boulder, face the latter two charges.
