GOP senator who declined to impeach Trump on Jan. 6 says decision ‘is now up to the courts’
Republican Sen. Mike Rounds has not said whether he regrets voting against impeachment against Donald Trump for inciting the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol, a move that could have barred him from future public office.
He said that such a move is “now in the courts”.
When pressed by NBC Meet the press host Chuck Todd on whether he thought Trump’s call for supporters to protest his potential indictment and arrest was appropriate, Mr. Rounds said: “There’s a difference between a former president and what he did on January 6th … compared to an individual, today, with a request to come to the protest.”
Mr Todd asked Mr Rounds if he thought the rhetoric of Mr Trump – who is not just a person but is running for president in 2024 – was “inciting mistrust”.
“I don’t know if he’s inciting mistrust or not … He’s obviously following some leaks, apparently, coming out of the DA’s office, which shouldn’t be happening. But certainly you don’t want to have any threats to the implementation or attempts to implement justice,” Mr. Rounds said, noting that it was an individual or a former president.
The media previously reported that the ex-president may face possible criminal charges in New York; Trump has not publicly said whether law enforcement has informed him of any allegations. Later, his press secretary clarified that “there was no report” of such accusations or arrest plans.
But Trump seems to have been the only person to “spill” the news of his arrest. He made similar claims during a search by federal law enforcement of his property in Mar-a-Lago, Florida, announcing that the “raid” had been conducted before law enforcement did.
