District of Columbia Attorney General Karl Racine warned Sunday that U.S. President Donald Trump could possibly be charged by city prosecutors with “a misdemeanor, a six-month-in-jail maximum,” amid fallout from the deadly insurrection at the U.S. Capitol earlier this month. “Let it be known that the office of attorney general has a potential charge that it may utilize,” Racine told MSNBC. “It’s law in DC since 2011. It makes illegal the statements of individuals that clearly encourage, cajole, and otherwise, you know, get people motivated to commit violence,” he added.
