Tim Kaine: DoJ Should Take up Jan. 6 Case, ‘the Evidence Is There’

‘There has to be some accountability’


KAINE: “I think the evidence is there. And you know, there is a lot of debate during the impeachment proceedings about President Trump that, you know, presidents get immunity during their time in office for legal proceedings by the DoJ or others, but that immunity expires once they are out. And I think the facts are clearly on the table without being a criminal lawyer myself, you know, what exactly might be the federal code provision. But I think facts are clearly on the table that would suggest that the president and others engaged in a massive conspiracy including being willing to countenance and encourage violence to overturn an election and disenfranchise 80 million people that voted for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. There's got to be -- there has to be some accountability for that.”
