Johnson said on MSNBC, “I think there should be a criminal investigation by the relevant Department of Justice wherever they are. Depending on where the misconduct or suspected misconduct occurred. You need to investigate. There has to be a criminal investigation. But the United States House of Representatives also needs to make constant commitments and end it with recommendations on what we can do to prevent the abuse of our Constitution that this President has imposed on the Constitution and the rule of law. It is important that we expose everything he did so that the American people understand what is happening. They support democracy and ensure that it cannot be attacked. "
Republicans ignore certified federal and state election results. Trump has to be a role model so that democracy is protected for future generations. Trump has turned the Republican Party into a full-blown authoritarian opponent of democracy. To maintain democracy in the United States, the rule of law must be upheld and Donald Trump must be punished for his possible crimes.
