WASHINGTON DC—On February 6, 2024, the US District Court for the District of Columbia returned its verdict to deny former President Donald Trump presidential immunity.

“Today, we affirm the denial. For the purpose of this criminal case, former President Trump has become citizen Trump, with all of the defenses of any other criminal defendant. But any executive immunity that may have protected him while he served as President no longer protects him against this prosecution.”

The full text of the court’s decision may be found on the U.S. District Court’s website.

According to Article S3.5.1 of the U.S. Constitution, the President may at times choose to have both House and Senate convene, and at times of disagreement, have them to disburse while he seeks counsel from his ambassadors and such. “He shall take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed and shall Commission all the Officers of the United States,” the Article states.

In the case of Watergate, the impeachment proceedings of then-President Richard Nixon began October 30, 1973, and ended on August 20, 1974. The entire investigation lasted nine months and three weeks. The impeachment proceedings ended without an impeachment vote after President Nixon resigned from office.

The Watergate Trial dominated the fact-backed TVs of the 1970s. At that time, the trial was complicated and lengthy. In all actuality, the Watergate Trial lasted from May of 1972 to June of 1973.

Documentation indicates that Gerald Ford insisted on a statement of contrition, but Nixon upheld that he had not committed any crimes. Eventually Ford agreed, and on September 8, 1974, then President Gerald Ford granted Nixon a “full, free, and absolute pardon,” that ended any future possibility of an indictment.

In the case of former President Trump, he has been under investigation since his 2015 ride down the golden escalator in Trump Tower with his wife, Melania at his side to announce his nomination to run for President in 2016.

According to the law, the President of the United States (POTUS) is protected by absolute immunity from lawsuits and prosecution during his tenure as President.

In the court’s decision not to uphold Trump’s natural Presidential immunity, it was indicated that while Trump was holding his rally one mile away from the Capitol, Joe Biden was then taking the Oath of Office, and therefore, the court alleges, Trump was no longer President, and no longer protected by Presidential immunity.

According to the 20th Amendment of the Constitution of the United States, the President’s term of office begins on January 21, at 12:00 p.m.  Then Vice President Mike Pence arrived at the U.S. Capitol Building in his motorcade at 12:35 p.m.

Trump has been fined hundreds of thousands of dollars, and remained under scrutiny over his claim to election interference, which has been proven in some cases.  On August 24, 2023, when the former President was arrested in Fulton County, Georgia. Multiple cases have been thrown out due to no prosecutable evidence.  Donald Trump has not been granted immunity in any of the investigations, raids, or allegations against a sitting President in the last eight years. 

The January 6, 2021 timeline with video footage by people who were there shows how the barricades, and attacks began before the Trump rally ever dispersed. Though Trump continues to be blamed for what has been publicly called the insurrection at the U.S. Capitol, he was not present when the riots began.

It was not Trump who killed Ashli Babbit. It was U.S. Secret Service Lt. Michael Byrd.

Trump took the stage at noon and spoke for one hour and 11 minutes.

The first Capitol breach occurred at 12:53.

The collapse of  freelance computer programmer, Benjamin Phillips, 50, from Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania was at 12:59 p.m. Trump’s speech was not over until 1:11 p.m.

According to the J6 documentation, at 1:00 p.m. USCP Deputy Chief Waldow is on the scene. He orders USCP Civil Disturbance Less Lethal Team officers into place.

At 1:06 Chief Waldow orders Less Lethal officers to fire their munitions into the crowd. No warning could be heard before this order.  At 1:07, a man in the crowd, Josh Black is injured on the side of the face from munitions fired by USCP officers. There was significant blood loss.  At 1:10 Chief Waldow orders a second round of munitions. Pepperball is used on the crowd.

The Trump rally ended at 1:11. Trump was repeatedly quoted in telling the crowd to “process peacefully.”  He was seated in his motorcade vehicle at 1:17 p.m.

Moments after DC MPD fired approximately 30 pepper ball rounds into a crowd filling the tunnel with capsicum gas, Roseanne Boyland, 34, of Kennesaw, Georgia collapsed.

Video footage captured shows Boyland being beaten over the head and body with a walking stick by DCMPD officer, Lila Morris. Medical examiners listed Boyland’s cause of death as accidental acute amphetamine intoxication.

Chief Waldow gives the third order to fire. DCMD Sgt. Daniel Thau requests explosive munitions.

At approximately 1:20, Kevin Greeson, 55, father of five from Athens, Alabama Collapsed at the Capitols West Plaza. Reports indicate, he died of a heart attack.
