Holy shit! Man, talk about informational overload. When these hearings started Democratic committee member Jamie Raskin said that the J6 Committee hearings would Blow the roof off of the building. And as we speak, right about now the Capitol dome should just be passing the International Space Station.
There is so much to write about, and so much new information to dissect and disseminate. Too much for me to do tonight, when my thoughts and memories are whirling.
Instead I want to concentrate on the single revelation tonight that blew me through the back of my chair. It came in two parts. The first was the incredible amount of testimony that came in tonight that showed That even Trump’s closest advisors knew the incredible import Trump’s words had on his supporters.
One of tonight’s witnesses, Sarah Matthews, the Deputy Press Secretary in the White House testified that, as one of the first media people to join Trump’s reelection campaign, she traveled the country with Trump on campaign events, and testified firsthand as to the power his words had on his audiences. Which was why she was so distraught about Trump’s Ellipse speech, and even more disappointed in his 2:24 tweet castigating Vice President Mike Pence. It seemed to her like incitement of the crowd.
Which feeds into what blew me out of the chair. We all know, and have heard repeatedly about Trump’s Missing 187 minutes in the executive dining room on January 6th, while the Capitol riot raged. Trump went into the dining room at about 1pm and went to the Rose garden at 4:07 to tell the rioters to go home. But that wasn’t really the point.
The overriding question is, What was Trump doing in the executive dining room for that 187 minutes? He was sitting there watching FUX News, and cheering on the rioters for answering his call, and queering up the electoral vote certification.
Which begs the question, What was Trump watching on FUX News? And that’s where the J6 committee dropped the hammer on Traitor Tot. It showed that at about 3:56 FUX News re Trump made that 4:07 statemported that the DC National Guard were leaving their barracks and heading to the capitol. As were other law enforcement personnel. With no new rioters, and increasing law enforcement reinforcements, Trump’s putsch had failed.
That’s why Trump made that 4:07 announcement from the Rose Garden. He wanted to spare his traitorous scum from being scooped up once reinforcements arrived. If the arrival of the cavalry had been delayed, Trump would never have made that announcement! He would have sat there, and let the riotious mob continue to delay the congress from doing its job for as long as possible. He sent them home simply because there was no reason to keep them there any longer.
There is a good reason why Traitor Tot spent 187 minutes sitting in the executive dining room watching DUX News. He wanted to see how long his seditious mob could keep the cops at bay while he and Giuliani canvassed GOP loyalists in the House and Senate to dispute the vote totals. Donald Trump is a seditious traitor to the United States.
