A resolution has been proposed in the U.S. House that would exonerate President Donald Trump of “insurrection” for the events of that protest-turned-riot at the Capitol on January 6, 2021.

He’s already been acquitted of claims brought against him by Democrats in the House, who actually tried twice, unsuccessfully, to impeach and remove him, in a trial in the Senate.

Democrats have ardently insisted ever since then that day was an actual “insurrection” against the government, led by Trump, and that as an insurrection offenders had plans to take over the government, assume authority over its foreign policy, its military, its economy, and every other government function, as defined as an insurrection.

What that day was, actually, was a protest-turned-riot, but Democrats claim “insurrection” because they want to use such a perceived offense to keep Trump from the 2024 ballot.

Now a new plan would go a step further than the Senate acquittal.

A resolution states: “Expressing the sense of the House of Representatives that former President Donald J. Trump did not engage in insurrection or rebellion against the United States, or give aid or comfort to the enemies thereof.”

The plan, obtained by the Daily Mail, is from Rep. Matt Gaetz.

More than two dozen others have joined as sponsors already.

“This resolution is a no-brainer – controversial only to the most extreme of the far-left – and a statement of fact that every single Republican can be expected to support,” supporters said. “If the left has the courage to interfere in our elections and weaponize the judicial system against our brethren, we must have the courage to express what is self-evident.”

Ten Republicans actually voted with the Democrats’ ideology back in the day in 2021, and eight of those immediately were ousted from the House by their own voters.

State bureaucrats in Colorado and Maine already have removed Trump from their ballots for 2024 based on the undefined claims by Democrats. But officials in more than a dozen other states have refused to go along with the activism.

And the Colorado and Maine decisions now are pending before the Supreme Court.
