Several groups are calling for an investigation into Donald Trump’s post-election conduct, following reports that he made multiple attempts to overturn the results of the 2020 election.
The groups, including the Center for American Progress and the Brennan Center for Justice, say that Trump’s actions may have violated the law and could pose a threat to American democracy.
“Trump’s actions after the election were a clear attempt to subvert the will of the people and undermine our democracy,” said Norman Eisen, a senior fellow at the Brennan Center for Justice. “He must be held accountable for his actions.”
The groups are calling for a special prosecutor to be appointed to investigate Trump’s post-election conduct. They say that the investigation should focus on Trump’s efforts to pressure state officials to overturn the election results, his attempts to interfere with the counting of electoral votes, and his role in the January 6th attack on the Capitol.
“The American people deserve to know the full truth about what happened after the 2020 election,” Eisen said. “A special prosecutor is the only way to ensure that Trump and his associates are held accountable for their actions.”
The calls for an investigation into Trump’s post-election conduct come as the House Select Committee on the January 6th Attack continues its investigation. The committee has already held several public hearings and has subpoenaed a number of witnesses, including Trump’s former White House chief of staff, Mark Meadows.
It is unclear whether a special prosecutor will be appointed to investigate Trump’s post-election conduct. However, the calls for an investigation are growing louder, and it is possible that Trump could face legal consequences for his actions.
