Trump Lawyer’s Shocking Admission: Jan. 6 Deemed Criminal in Supreme Court, Unveiling Ballot Ban

WASHINGTON D.C. – During a recent episode of Late Night with Seth Meyers, a clip featuring a statement from former President Donald Trump’s lawyer was aired, in which the lawyer acknowledged that the events of January 6th at the U.S. Capitol were “criminal.” This admission was made in the context of a discussion about the Supreme Court’s decision to uphold a ban on adding a citizenship question to the 2020 census.

The clip, shared by NBC, showcased a segment in which Meyers played a video of Trump’s lawyer making the comment during a case hearing at the Supreme Court. The lawyer’s admission that the events of January 6th were “criminal” was met with applause from the audience.

This acknowledgement is significant given that Trump and his allies have consistently downplayed or denied any wrongdoing in relation to the events that transpired on January 6th. The lawyer’s statement is a departure from this narrative and provides a rare admission of the criminal nature of the incident.

The conversation then shifted to the broader discussion about the use of the census to collect demographic data and the potential impact of the citizenship question. The Supreme Court’s ruling to ban the addition of the citizenship question was seen as a victory for those who believed its inclusion would have led to an undercounting of immigrant communities.

The inclusion of the clip in the Late Night episode highlights the ongoing debate around the events of January 6th and the implications of the Supreme Court’s decision on the census. It also sheds light on the unusual admission by Trump’s lawyer, which contrasts with the prevailing narrative put forth by the former president and his supporters.

The airing of this clip serves as a reminder of the continued relevance and significance of the events of January 6th, as well as the ongoing legal battles and political debates surrounding it. It also showcases the power of late-night television as a platform for discussions on important societal issues.
