Stephen Maynard Caliendo and Suzanne Chod provided analysis on the January 6 committee’s final report and criminal charges

Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Ill., said at the end of December, that he believes the Justice Department will charge former President Donald Trump after the House Jan. 6 committee concluded its investigation detailing his pressure campaign to overturn the election. Kinzinger said he believes Trump should be charged and convicted based on the evidence the committee uncovered.

The committee released its final report, spanning more than 800 pages, late last month after a final public meeting when all nine members voted to recommend that the Justice Department pursue criminal charges against Trump as he makes another bid for the White House in 2024. The full report details the committee’s arguments that largely blame Trump and his false claims of widespread election fraud for the Jan. 6 attack.

Both Stephen Maynard Caliendo, dean of the College of Arts and Sciences at North Central College, and Suzanne Chod, professor of political science at North Central College, were interviewed by WGN-TV and FOX 32 Chicago respectively, regarding the Jan. 6 committee’s final report and recommendation for criminal charges.
