Rep. Matt Gaetz has developed a strategy to legally shield former president Donald Trump from prosecution and, many feel, probable conviction in a federal trial in Washington, D.C., on charges related to the incident on January 6.
The Florida Republican explained how the GOP-led Congress could drag Trump in and force him to give evidence that would later “immunize” him from prosecution in an appearance on the Real America’s Voice streaming network.
“You can actually bring President Trump in to give testimony to Congress and, in doing so, immunize him,” Gaetz said.
“Now, there’s different forms of immunity that take place at the committee level, subcommittee level, in some instances for full immunity, you have to have more of a supermajority vote,” he continued. “But if you had a supermajority vote of a committee, like Speaker McCarthy could set up a select committee tomorrow that can bring Trump in and immunize him.
“And then we could proceed with the very legitimate investigative work that we’re doing of the Bidens and the corrupt DOJ,” Gaetz continued. “Unfortunately, none of those things are happening. Instead, Congress is not in Washington, not assembled. And I think the timing is on purpose.
