Democrats on January 6 Committee Express Concerns Over Potential Jail Threats From Trump

House Democrats who led an investigation into ex-President Donald Trump’s involvement in the January 6 Capitol riot express concerns over their safety and potential arrest if the former president wins reelection.

They expressed worry to CBS News in a recent article about a March 18 post by Trump on Truth Social, where he stated that former Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) “should go to jail along with the rest of the Unselect Committee!”

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), who has consistently used Democrat investigations and impeachments of Trump as fundraising opportunities, informed the network, “My wife and I have had conversations about what life would look like if the worst happened… . You can’t avoid the conversations about ‘What if?’ And I have to think about my own personal safety.”

House Democratic Caucus Chairman Pete Aguilar (CA) acknowledged he took the threat of imprisonment seriously, yet lightened the tone by jesting that the jail’s proximity to the Capitol meant his family would visit him “no matter where I am.”

Rep. Zoe Lofgren, another member of the committee that investigated January 6 and a fellow California Democrat, stated her belief that Trump intends to do what he says he will do.

Former D.C. Police Officer Michael Fanone, who testified before the Committee and later joined CNN as a law enforcement analyst, told CBS News, “He’s going to weaponize the Department of Justice…and use it to go after people like myself… . He’s telling us exactly what he plans on doing.”

Former U.S. Capitol Police officer Harry Dunn, currently a Democratic congressional candidate in Maryland, shared with CBS News, “Anybody who has testified against him, or spoken out in a public capacity, should be worried.”

The former officer, now venturing into politics, acknowledged the unsettling notion of potential arrest, stating, “is a little scary to think about, but you have to continue to do the right thing.”

A Trump spokeswoman told CBS News in a statement that their “entire narrative is a lie”:

Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, Liz Cheney, and the Corrupt Democrats on the sham January 6th Committee have lied to the American public for years, denied key witnesses from testifying to the truth, and covered up evidence that proved President Trump, nor any of his supporters, ever engaged in an alleged ‘insurrection.’

Their entire narrative is a lie and Americas know that Joe Biden is the true threat to democracy.

The January 6 committee dissolved when Republicans regained control of the House in 2020. Cheney, who served as the committee’s leading Republican, was unsuccessful in her reelection campaign.
