  • A former federal prosecutor predicted Donald Trump will be indicted for his role in the Capitol riot.
  • Ex-prosecutor Glenn Kirschner said there have been no criminal charges against him so far.
  • “That will change. It has to change if we care about the survival of our democracy. He will be indicted,” Kirschner predicted.

Former federal prosecutor Glenn Kirschner believes former President Donald Trump will be indicted for his role in last year’s insurrection. 

“Guns have been smoking all around Donald Trump for years,” Kirschner said in a video posted to YouTube on Saturday. “And for whatever reason, there have been no criminal charges yet brought against Donald Trump.

“That will change. It has to change if we care about the survival of our democracy. He will be indicted,” Kirschner predicted.

Kirschner made his remarks in a video analyzing potentially damning testimony given by Cassidy Hutchinson, a top aide to then-White House chief of staff Mark Meadows, earlier this week. 

Hutchinson, in her testimony before the House January 6 committee, tasked with investigating the Capitol riot made several shocking claims that stunned former Trump aides. She said, for example, that Trump had expressed approval when rioters chanted about hanging Vice President Mike Pence.

She also detailed the intense effort that Trump made to get to the Capitol, even when security detail said they were instructed to take him elsewhere. Hutchinson described him lunging forward at a driver and grabbing at the throat of a Secret Service agent in an effort to demand that they take him to the Capitol. 

She also said Trump urged Secret Service to get rid of metal detectors. 

“I was in the vicinity of a conversation where I overheard the president say something to the effect of, ‘I don’t effing care that they have weapons. They’re not here to hurt me. Take the effing mags away. Let my people in, they can march to the Capitol from here,'” Hutchinson said.

After her testimony, Trump railed against Hutchinson, calling her a “total phony” and denying many of her claims.

The Capitol riot left five people, including one police officer, dead. Members of the Proud Boys, which is classified as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center, were also present. 

Organizers were emboldened by Trump’s urges to protest the results of the 2020 election with him, despite Joe Biden’s election victory. While members of Congress were meeting inside the Capitol to certify the results and verify Biden’s electoral win, Trump supporters organized an attempted coup and stormed the Capitol.
