Toomey Thinks Trump Is a Criminal? – DC Watchdog

Toomey Thinks Trump Is a Criminal?

Senator Pat Toomey (R., Pa.) said on Sunday that President Trump could face “criminal liability” after inciting a mob of supporters to head to the Capitol while Congress was in the process of certifying the Electoral College results,” according to the conservative National Review.

The mob overwhelmed Capitol police and breached the building, forcing lawmakers to evacuate. Dozens of officers were injured in the riots, and one officer was killed, reportedly after rioters beat him with a fire extinguisher. One rioter was also shot and killed by police.

“Toomey called on Trump to resign, in a Sunday interview on CNN’s State of the Union.

“‘I think at this point, with just a few days left, it’s the best path forward, the best way to get this person in the rearview mirror for us that could happen immediately,’ Toomey told host Jake Tapper. ‘I’m not optimistic it will. But I think that would be the best way forward.’

“Toomey added, ‘I think there is also a possibility that there is criminal liability here. I’m not a lawyer. I’m not a prosecutor . . . the standard for a conviction in a criminal prosecution is quite high.'”

    If there ever was a criminal, it’s you Toomey.
    President Trump is the most honest president we have ever had

  2. Mikel Ronsick says:

    He didn’t say a thing would incite anyone twith a brain to violence but, this was too good off a chance for the socialcrats to send in their henchmen. They were escorted in by cars that appeared to be law enforcement and incited the violence. They all wore helmets and tactics gear. Everyone has seen them even on the fake news. They just didn’t identify them.

  3. Phyllis Ulrich says:

    President Trump has been attacked throughout his first term and I have my doubts that this lawlessness at the Capitol was started byTrump supporters, but was just another plan by the left to ensure Trump was blamed.

    • Mary says:

      Agree- Where was Toomey and Lamb when Maxine Waters told everyone to get in the face of Trump supporters and harass them no matter where they are. Also burn down the White House.

      • Esther Patterson says:

        Gutless wonders

      • Catherine says:

        Mary, I agree with you. Toomey is a first class traitor and liar. H says things behind the persons back but has no guts to do it face to face , the others are all the same too. Two faced cheating no goods. They do hid it well don’t they. Well it is not over, they will all face God on Judgement Day for all the sins they have committed here this year and in past years . God sees all and will Judge all. God Bless America again and God bless the Trump family, America thanks you for what you have done to make it better for true American people.

  4. Joyce mann says:

    This PRESIDENT has been treated worse than any President ever.
    I love PRESIDENT TRUMP.
    He IS the strongest one I know.
    GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP.

    • Sharon Carter says:

      AMEN!!! Trump has been the ONLY true President this country has had in a long time. He has done only good for us and deserves the best!!! God is keeping the books and it’s not over…We love President Trump, Melania and the family…God bless each one!!!

  5. RebeccaFuchser says:

    President Trump has done a lot for our country in freedom of religion and pro-life areas.
    Those who reject God and truth are still stiring up discord in our country.
    Under the Constitution, citizens have the right to free speech and the right to assemble. Many assembled in Washing, D.C. to show support for America and President Trump.
    But some people were disruptive and rioted–even an office was killed. President Trump is blamed as he has been blamed for everything the Democrats don’t agree with! I wonder if the same people who organized protests and riots against the president were back of those who caused such destruction and discord in the Capitol? Seems possible.
    The Democrat’s and side-shifters are making the most of this to promote their agenda! Just watch and see what discord they promote

  6. Rosemarie Fleming says:

    I am tired of what has been done to President trump. Speak now while you can as we may not be aloud in the near future. I will not be voting for Toomey again. But call his office and speak your peace. Our president should be aloud to finish. All the good he has done. Not one ward from all the creeps over the summer with all the riots. SOME THE LEFT said it was a myth. No it was not right what a hand full of people did at the Capitol. But we have a right to be there just to voice not wreck. Call his office and let him know how you fell. Bless you all and call. 202-224-4254

  7. Ken Good says:

    Sen. Toomey is just going the way the wind is blowing in order to keep his future Sen. job. Weak as jelly and afraid to stand up for the President.

  8. Carol says:

    Becki, good comment. How can they truthfully call themselves Republicans. Traitors is more like it. The Dems and so called Republicans are Traitorous Socialists. The people that think Biden and Harris will be doing good for our country have either forgotten, don’t care or don’t know what Socialism is.

  9. Carol says:

    I agree with you, as do others I know.

  10. Marlene Steadman says:

    Trump is a good President. I tolerated Obama 8 years but Dems did not allow us any peace for 4 good years. At least Trump stands up for America. We are noting those who have shown him total disrespect. Trump did not incite a riot. Besides no one stops BLM or Antifa from destroying property and taking over. I believe it was Antifa that caused the staged riot. The Americans there wanted to be ohotographed to prove they exist – Pro Trump. Media never showed them, they only wanted to show Biden mess. This was a planned peaceful protest. It’s a shame that after calling out other countries for unjust elections our courts and representatives have caved in to the worst so called election the U.S. has ever experienced.

    • Theodore Hosford says:

      Fuck Trump POS loser 😤

    • I really wish that the so call Mob could have gotten to those lieing shit eaters .lf they had exterminated the vermon , like 80,000,000 American Citizens were hoping for ; then we would not be having these discussions to day. America would have been so much better with out all of those Traitors. Maybe there is a slim chance of hope still. Maybe a 1/2 mile wide Meteoroid will drop on them and empty out the cesspool of corruption . Hopefully God still answers Payers. amen!

    • Rosemarie Fleming says:

      Call his office and complain. I am calling. Will never vote for him again. 202 224 4254

  11. Trump was the best President we’ve had next to John F. Kennedy. He did a lot for our country that no one else could.

  12. CHARLES HICKS says:

    I’m appalled at the underhanded tactics the Democratic Party is doing to make their point; especially when it’s against their political opponents. They will do anything to win an election. seventy million people feel that they rigged and won the fraudulent 2020 election. I’m afraid that America is doomed. With the democrats in charge.

  13. JPR says:

    Pelosi should stop trashing President Trump. Trump has been great for more than half of Americans. Pelosi appears unhinged and she is inciting to riot for her never ending witch hunt on Trump and Thoughts of impeaching President Trump with less than 12 days remaining. Americans on both sides of the political choices are fed up with Pelosi’s Trump obsession with President Donald Trump.. Let, America and Biden move on to take care of all America.
    Pelosi, Please Stand Down for the health of our Republic.

  14. Chris says:

    Toomey is a looser. They are all running for cover to save their seats. Make a pact with the devil (Dems)…
    The real people responsible for this farce was the capital police who didn’t know what to do,and opened the gates and let the rioters IN. I think it was a set up from the git go and those that went in were IDIOTS! It will not be long before Sens. like Romney jump on band wagon,if he hasn’t already. what a POS

  15. Mike Disney says:

    Senator Toomey, YOU are a DUMB SHIT!! You can thank our president for whatever you have because you are about to lose all of it.

  16. pete says:

    Toomey and other political hacks like him are defrauding the voters by taking taxpayer money for doing nothing but self promotion and are criminals who are taking money under false pretenses1

  17. Julie says:

    First of all, Toomey should know better. If he had bother to listen to what was ACTUALLY said, instead of letting others to “interpret” for him, President Trump said no such thing to cause a riot! A very prestigious lawyer who also is a History expert reviewed the tweets and the footage from both the rally and on his speach; which are being used as “evidence” to incite violence. Besides, he is one of the Democrats that has been trying to get President Trump out of office just like the others have.

    • Donna says:

      So sad when you hear Toomey talk just like a Democrat! That’s why Republicans never stand up for we the people. Shame on him

  18. Anthony Verderese says:

    ThThe press is biased, and so are TWITTER, Facebook, and Amazon. Trump is great!
    a

  19. Walter Thatcher says:

    Toomey is a RHINO and just like Romney and others that are not true Republicans and they should resign and be voted out of the party. Many senators and house members do not represent their party and they should be voted out. They are only there for the money and change colors of who they truly are. The ANTIFA, BLM, AANON and other anarchist were paid to do the riots in the Capitol. Agree some of the Trump supporters were in the building but did not damage or start fires and burn up the buildings.

  20. Terry says:

    Toomey is out of his mind. The election process i Phil. needs to be cleaned up and Toomey needs to go.

  21. Bearpaw says:

    Lies,lies and more lies! Now even from turncoats within the Republican Party. President Trump did encourage citizens to descend on DC to make their voices heard.But were infiltrated by BLM and Antifa which has been proven although the liberal media continue to spread their lies to a gullible public. These RINO’s that are bashing Trump need to be remembered come next election and culled from the ranks.

  22. Sandra Fordyce says:

    I do not know the laws. but the President did not encourage this action. The election was a sham, the people at the capitol are outraged and were willing to put their outrage publicly. They are responsible. Shame on Congressmen who have supported the left. Has no one a conscience.

  23. President ,Donald Trump did not give orders to them people to disrupt the White House ..It was not to stir up trouble Ut was just a backing for people inside ,to show respect..that’s it .These people That caused death and outrageous trouble ,DID It On There Own .He does not agree ,and they the Roiters were burning cities ,breaking into theolaces he DIDNOT CODONE IT.,HE SAID IT WAS BAD. BUT THE DEMOCRATES ARE THE TROUBLE MAKERS. “”PEOPLE DONT SEE THE GOOD HE DID FOR OUR COUNTRY BUT 75,000.000 PEOPLE DID .THATS WHY VOTED FOR HIM NOT BIDDEN THAT WAS A SCAMMED ELECTION.

THAT BUSH LADY TOLD THEM GUYS They COULDNT DISPUTE THE VOTES . PEOPLE GOT YOUR GUYS NUMBER ,DEVILS WHAT YOU ARE .I WISH GOD TO REIN DOWN ON THE WORST . .

  24. President Trump is and has been for Law and Order…Where have you been Sen. Toomey? So quick to judge. Why did you have nothing to say when Maxine Waters was inciting violence against all Republicans, I didn’t hear you call for her to be criminally prosecuted! Where were you all summer when the riots, looting and the cities were burning? Are you afraid of Anitfa and BLM? Not strong enough to stand up against the Socialist, Marxists terrorists? You are a big disappointment, just like Romney. Just another Rino! You have lost my vote and my families. Your just part of the problem. No guts to stand up against the evil swamp…then you must be part of it. Time for you to GO!

  25. Paul says:

    Toomey is a loser low life and low energy person. Anything to get noticed. We need to get you impeached too . Go back to your corner of the room with your dunce cap on and take TIME OUT cause your the biggest loser here because we the people see who you are and what you are.

  26. Jim says:

    As long as democraps take away republican and conservative voices to have FREEDOM of SPEECH that they enjoy, you can expect this to boil over into CIVIL WAR! Twitter, Facebook & Google allowed IDIOTS like Maxine Waters to spew her hate and social media was silent as democrap cities allowed riots, burning of cities, destroying of hundreds of police cars and burning hundreds of small businesses when IDIOT democrap mayors & governors egged them on. I’m sick of “celebrities” bailing criminals out of jail in 3 fucking hours to continue their crimes. George Soros funded BLM & Antifa and bought them buses to go from burning city to burning city. Portland had riots for over 150 days and Twitter sat on their hands because the fake news media is democrap owned. Civil WAR is the only answer and 89 MILLION Trump supporters can have their chance to get even.

  27. Pat says:

    Do you people realize you are supporting a man who is mentally unbalanced?

    • Theresa says:

      You obviously breath the commie gas passing garbage on the paid for leftist fake news. Instead of knee jerk reply. Look at the latest info about scum bag John Sullivan, who admitted to CNN (Commie News Network) that he was flown in from Utah (via Soros/Obama) to infiltrate the MAGA group. There is a picture of him inside the Capital. Sullivan is an Antifa goon, financed through the IRS 501s via Soros. Do your research before committing stupid suicide.

Talk about Mentally unstable. May-be you should look in the mirror in the morning and get a reality check .Ask your-self what the Fuck is That.hahaha

  28. William McDaniel says:

    Bull!! Where were all of these people the last 8 months when blm,antifa and dems were burning down cities,commiting murder,arson,looting and many other crimes.TRUMP is the best thing to happen to our country in many many years.
    The hypocrisy is running rampid!
    Let’s stand up for our President.

  29. Dee says:

    The criminal isn’t President Trump. The criminals are the one’s who sold our country to China and Russia. Who steals from we the people to satisfy their needs not the American people. It’s a disgrace! They hate president Trump cause he loves this country and the American people. The sad thing is they hate this country and the people who won’t stand for socialism. If you want socialism go to those countries who believe in communism. WE BELIEVE IN FREEDOM!!

    • Mohamid squirrelisky says:

      We trump supporters need to stop paying taxes , imagine how starved for cash to blow on their china buddies the democrats would be when 75 million stop their slush fund

  30. Holly Rose says:

    trump should be tried for murder for the 5 deaths of those at the fracas. Why can’t the police go and arrest the bastard trump now? He is accessible. Just go into the oval office and cuff him or get the secret service to cuff him and bring him in. No mercy should be shown for trump.

  31. David L Stafford says:

    Is Toomey running for President?

  32. PJ says:

    I think to often too many of us are driven by the media and they fail to report full truth. No one seems to look for the truth anymore. We have fallen victim to a politic frenzy driven by power hungry people. We, if anything, owe President Trump and apology for all he has been through in the past few years. He has been persecuted in the name of power and party politics. Watch out – next target “Tech takes on the Democrats!” Are they ready? Now we live with threats and fear. There is no more truth. The Republican party is in disarray and split. Sad days ahead.

  33. Pete says:

    RINO’s like Toomy are the problem, the fake news has such a double standard. Cammala has actually incited riots in Portland & Minn. and paid to let criminals out but no one says a word.

    • Mohamid squirrelisky says:

      Have you watched camelilla she is full of herself satan in long hair
      Fits right in with the Obama crowd of liars and thieves
      Her
      Its name was misspelled on purpose

  34. Connie says:

    President Trump is not a criminal, he DID NOT incite the riot at the Capital. It was yet another Democrat move against Trump and those that can not see this needs to leave office. You are not standing with our President or the Republican party. Pence has switched sides and is no longer with Trump, he has been paid off. We all knew the swamp was ugly but this is over the top, trying to turn everyone against Trump. He has done great things for us, WHY are you not standing strong for him. Do not believe this garbage about him. Stand with Trump.

    • Catherine Hurd says:

      I agree 100% Connie and the people in Pa. where I used to be from need to get Rid of Toomey, he is a turn coat and does not give a shit about any of you or our country, we have a few of those who will be coming up for Election , they have forgotten who the Hell pays their Paychecks. If you don’t do as the Boss says you get FIRED so don’t be surprised when WE BOSSES KICK YOUR ASSES for a change
      God Bless our President Trump and God Bless America . I am an American and I believe That GOD will kick all their collective asses. they have forgotten that God is THE ALMIGHTY, better run evil boys and or girls your offices are going to be empty of Evil doers soon.

  35. Joan Squitieri says:

    I have been a staunch President Trump supporter from the beginning, but I believe he overstepped his boundaries on January 6th by urging his supporters to do what they did at the Capitol. Doing what they did made everyone there a criminal & they should be prosecuted ASAP. Our President also has to be indicted for causing this insurrection. I’m very disappointed in Trump, but Biden 3will NEVER be my president. He & his democrapic cohorts created this mess which now has the USA looking like a Banana Republic in the eyes of the world. Those who once had so much respect for America are now laughing at us thanks to Trump’s shananikins.

    • Connie says:

      Joan, President Trump did not do as you said. The supporters were only there to show the support for him OUTSIDE. They were never to enter the Capital. It was Antifa that was bussed in dressed like Trump supporters that did all this damage paid for by Democrats. Wake up, this is just another attack on our President. Trump has done so much for us, stand in support of him, he did nothing wrong……

  36. Brenda says:

    Toomey is a crook.

  37. Marci Sample says:

    President Trump is the least Criminal in Washington DC. All of you political panty waste’s are far more criminally inclined to your own fellow citizens.

  40. Gregory Gibler says:

  43. Derdre says:

    Trump is not responsible for another man’s crime, you “TURNCOATS” need to setback and resign…..NOW

  44. Larry says:

    Toomey has joined with the lunatic Marxist-Democrats and should be labeled a traitor.

  45. Bill Julian says:

    Toomey is a fucking joke. Nothing more than a RINO. All these jerks need to be voted out, even if it means electing a Democrat. At least you know where they stand and will stab you while you are looking at them, unlike RINOS that stab you in the back.

  46. Becki says:

    You nasty hateful backstabbing demonrats and fake republicans are the criminals. YOU started the riot at the capital and as usual blamed OUR REAL PRESIDENT TRUMP. YOU ARE the ones who need to be impeached. YOU caused the problems by bringing in the blm and the other TERRORISTS . So put the blame on yourselves because YOU ARE the guilty ones.

    • Tracy says:

      Absolutely! And ya know what? It’s our turn! PATRIOTS UNITE! Let’s take mad max up on her advice for once! Let’s all get into their faces and scream to get out that we don’t want them here! Go right up to them and make our truth be known to the world! They blatantly lie to the world’s faces and get what they want. We want unity and peace for our children. They want the complete opposite. They can hide behind their mansion walls and beefed up security, but try to take away our God given rights as Americans. President Trump is the very best POTUS we’ve ever had. He rightfully still belongs our President. As for me, he still is. I’m keeping my Faith. PATRIOTS UNITE! GOD BLESS

  47. JERRY LAMB says:

    I DON’T KNOW ABOUT CRIMINAL RESPONSIBILITY BUT I KNOW OUR PRESIDENT
    HAS AN EGO PROBLEM AND THAT IS HIS WORST ENEMY. HE DID SOME VERY GOOD
    THINGS WHILE IN OFFICE BUT HIS MOUTH, TWEETS AND EGO JUST WON’T LET
    GO AND THAT IS HIS DOWN FALL. FROM DAY ONE IF HE WOULD HAVE JUST DONE
    HIS JOB HE WOULD HAVE WON THE RACE, AND WE WOULD HAVE KEPT THE SENATE.
    AND MAYBE EVEN GOTTEN THE HOUSE BACK.

  49. Michel Vincent says:

    Toomey must be an idiot to not know this riot was not caused by Trump, but the antifa creeps Bussed in dressed like Trump Supporters. The Truth will come out in he end.

    • Michael you are correct about antifa causing this whole riot. But the libtards will never allow the truth go out. I feel about antifa, gang members and a few others that you deal with them like rabid dogs and out a stop to it fast.

    • Carol says:

      Michel I hope you are correct. I’m afraid for my children and grandchildren.
