Closing Thought–12Feb21

Part of the evidence that the Dems are presenting to make a case for an impeachment….part of that evidence is that Trump incited the mob to commit these breaches…..an accusation that Trump denies.

As the trial of Trump proceeds some of the participants in the breach of the Capitol have now seen the light and the errors of their actions….or so they claim….

They broke through barricades, shattered windows and seized control of the U.S. Capitol, some making death threats against members of Congress hiding inside, others brutalizing the police officers who stood in their way.

As the cases against nearly 200 of the Capitol rioters begin to wind through federal court, many of the defendants blame the commander in chief they followed for the violence that left five dead during the insurrection Jan. 6.

In court documents, media interviews and through official attorney statements, staunch supporters of former President Donald Trump who carried out the attempted coup argue they were merely doing what they thought the nation’s leader had asked, some citing a cult-like loyalty.

Go figure!

Stupidity does not excuse the action.

The trial continues and the result is all but written in stone…..he will be acquitted because the GOP does not have the courage to act in the best interest of the country.

  1. What about the trials of any of those directly involved. Have any of them gone to prison yet for their involvement in that incident?
    Best wishes, Pete.
