Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) said Thursday on CNN’s “New Day” that after the 2020 presidential election Donald Trump was “half a step away from a constitutional crisis” because he tried to “take over the Department of Justice and the attorney general.”
Discussing the new Senate Judiciary Committee report on Donald Trump’s actions after the 2020 election, Durbin said, “We can see evidence of that in our report that we’re really seeing from the Judiciary Committee. It was some of the most preposterous ideas, Italy-gate. I think you remember that supposedly some Italian satellites were hooked up to the Dominion voting machines, bizarre theories, being pushed by the White House, of course, Trump White House, on the Department of Justice. That was part of the problem here.
