A former Republican congressman has said that he thinks the “end is near” for former President Donald Trump as the January 6 House select committee is set to be making criminal referrals based on their findings.
Carlos Curbelo, a former GOP member of the House of Representatives who had represented Florida’s 26th District from 2015 to 2019, said on Sunday morning that it is possible that Trump is going to have a criminal referral filed against him. This statement was made during an appearance on The Katie Phang Show.
While Curbelo is a conservative he has openly opposed Trump before. Despite this, he was not open to the idea of the select committee issuing a criminal referral against the former President. The former congressman said that Trump is not currently performing well politically and that a referral could largely be seen as a politicized attack that Trump can use to draw in more support during his rallies.
Curbelo also added that he did not believe anything could save Trump and that his “next bankruptcy is looming.”
The select committee is set to have its final public hearing on Monday. During the hearing, the committee members will decide which criminal referrals they will make to the Department of Justice (DOJ) based on their findings over the past few months.
