There are no shortage of opinions regarding former President Donald Trump, and there is no doubt that they grow more ridiculous by the day, either.
Now nearly 5 months removed from the end of his first term, Trump is receiving attention from exactly the sort of folks he’d like to avoid. Namely, prosecutors and the District Attorney in Manhattan, who are currently in the middle of a massive investigation into the Trump Organization.
But, as if that weren’t enough, there are still plenty of politicos who’d like nothing more than to reexamine the former President’s actions in the lead-up to the attempted insurrection of January 6th.
In fact, there are some out there who’d still like to see him arrested for this.
Frank Figliuzzi, who served as assistant director for FBI Counterintelligence under Obama, said Tuesday that members of Congress as well as certain Trump administration officials might need to be arrested in order to prevent a repeat of the January 6 Capitol riot.
“Arresting low-level operatives is merely a speed bump, not a roadblock. In order to really tackle terrorism — and this time domestically — you’ve got to attack and dismantle the command-and-control element of a terrorist group. And unfortunately, and I know this is painful to hear, that may mean people sitting in Congress right now, people in and around the former president. That’s how you do this. Otherwise recruitment, inciting, and cult-like leadership continues to recruit people to violence.”
Of course, Trump has already faced accusations of “incitement” over the incident, having been acquitted of just such an allegation by the Senate in the weeks immediately following the incident.
