House Republican Warns Trump Supporters of DOJ Trap
Rep. Clay Higgins (R-La.) has issued a warning to conservative Americans about “falling for the trap” if they choose to protest against former President Donald Trump’s latest indictment.
Higgins, a member of the Homeland Security Committee, warned Trump supporters that the Department of Justice would like to have “J6 again,” a reference to the alleged breach of the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021.
“My fellow conservatives, the DOJ/FBI doesn’t expect to imprison Trump, they expect to imprison you. They want J6 again, in Miami and in your city and in mine. They want MAGA conservatives to react to this perimeter probe and in doing so, set yourselves up for targeted persecution and further entrapment,” Higgins said in a statement on June 11.
This is a realistic warning. On the other hand to do nothing is costly. Perhaps what the American population is learning is that their real enemy is the government and that peaceful protests are pointless and self-defeating. What happens when they conclude that only well organized and heavily armed protesters can succeed?
