      Several GOP who voted against convicting Trump, most notably McConnell, indicated that they believed CITIZEN TRUMP should be exposed to civil and criminal remedies:

      “Just because Donald Trump’s second impeachment trial is now behind him, the former president could still face criminal charges and lawsuits related to the U.S. Capitol riot as a private citizen.

      Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell alluded to just that in remarks given over the weekend, after he led 43 Republicans in voting to acquit Trump on his “incitement of insurrection” charge.

      McConnell, 78, offered a strong rebuke of Trump, 74, in a speech delivered soon after on the Senate floor.

      President Trump is still liable for everything he did while he was in office as an ordinary citizen,” McConnell said.

      Now a private citizen no longer afforded the legal protections of the presidency, Trump “is still liable for everything he did while he was in office, as an ordinary citizen, unless the statute of limitations has run,” McConnell added.

      “There’s no question—none—that President Trump is practically and morally responsible for provoking the events of the day, “McConnell said. “No question about it. The people that stormed this building believed they were acting on the wishes and instructions of their president.”

      WELL, THE FIRST CIVIL SUIT IS ALREADY IN:

      “Thompson and the NAACP said Trump, Giuliani, the Proud Boys and the Oath Keepers shared a common goal “of employing intimidation, harassment, and threats” to stop the vote count. The riot was “a direct, intended, and foreseeable result” of the conspiracy, it said.

      Their suit invoked the Civil Rights Act of 1871, commonly known as the Ku Klux Klan act, which allows lawsuits against government officials for claims that they conspired to violate civil rights. It was filed in U.S. District Court in Washington by a law firm specializing in such cases, Cohen, Millstein, Sellers & Toll.

      Their complaint included many of the claims made against Trump by the House managers during the Senate impeachment trial and incorporated allegations made by the FBI in court documents accompanying criminal charges against members of the Proud Boys and Oath Keepers.Thompson and the NAACP said Trump, Giuliani, the Proud Boys and the Oath Keepers shared a common goal “of employing intimidation, harassment, and threats” to stop the vote count.

      THE LAWSUIT MAY NOT SURVIVE BUT IF IT DOES THE DOCUMENT DISCOVERY WOULD BE INTERESTING (I think I hear Stone deleting emails)

      CAN CRIMINAL PROSECUTION BE FAR OFF? ALREADY UNDER INVESTIGATION FOR GEORGIA.
