The January 6 commission, a historic date in American politics, raises an important question. Is Donald Trump facing imprisonment? Mario Dumont tries to answer him.
This parliamentary committee, chaired by Benny Thompson, considers the committee its mission to convict Mr. Trump in the court of public opinion.
However, if Trump is accused largely of responsibility for the attack on the Capitol, many suspect he will go behind bars.

“This is how civil wars begin,” he added.
The analyst allows himself to compare Quebec to its American neighbors, noting that La Belle province is “brilliant” in terms of devolution.
Mario Dumont finds it difficult to see how the commission that uncovers the former president’s wrongdoing in the Capitol attack could not send him to prison.
“The United States is going through very difficult times,” Dumont said.
