I love learning new words.
“Magnetometer” won Tuesday.
He knew. He knew they were armed. He knew what they planned to do. He knew because he had dog-whistled them to do it.
The president of the United States sent armed insurrectionists to the Capitol.
People got hurt. People died. But it was ok because, “They’re not here to hurt me.” Well, allrighty, then.
The president’s chief of staff oversaw the Jan. 6 conspiracy. “Things might get real, real, bad on January 6th.” Man. Mark Meadows as Nostradamus. Yep, they got real, real bad. And the Oath Keepers and Proud Boys were recruited by Trump for what we now know was a very clear mission.
Trump was more than fine with the notion of stringing up Mike Pence. He said the mob wasn’t “doing anything wrong.”
Pat Cipollone could clear all of this up in five minutes. He clearly has a conscience. But he, at least up to this point, has no balls. There was “an awareness of criminality.”
“We’re gonna get charged with every crime imaginable.” And, “People are going to die and the blood’s gonna be on your f**king hands.”
And that’s the exasperating part of all this. They know. They know what happened and they know who did it. Kevin McCarthy was absolutely eloquent in his initial condemnation of what happened on Jan. 6, 2021.
And now? Pure coward.
Obstruction of justice.
Conspiracy to defraud the government of the United States.
Incitement of violence
Let me remind you that Cassidy Hutchinson—like every other witness in these hearings—was a dyed-in-the-wool, jersey wearing Trump Tribalist. So spare me the, “This is all just a partisan witch hunt” crap.
From Ms. Hutchinson. “We were watching the Capitol building get defaced over a lie.”
“As an American, I was disgusted.”
Anyone who truly loves America was, and is.
