Trump was briefed? He knew days before?
Trump had to have received a security briefing informing him of domestic terrorism traveling to the rally. He knew days before they were armed, he was advised by secret service not to make appearance at the event. He knew because the FBI knew. If the FBI knew that Trump would have received a security briefing from homeland security and the national security advisor. That is protocol. Trump knew of the threats and demanded that it move forward by leading the rally himself, inflaming the mob, not discouraging it.
The FBI acknowledged that they were aware more than a week before the rally and had warned the biggest threats not to attend. They state that they were tracking social media threats all the way to DC from others. All of those arrested and questioned believe they were fighting a revolution to uphold Trumps presidency. None were ANTIFA, or BLM.
Was the gang of 8 also briefed? Did they fail to prepare Or did Trump withhold that information?
Why wasnt there sufficient security in place?
Deputy national security adviser Matt Pottinger resigned the day of the attack, lets ask him.
if they had resumed.
During the Senate impeachment trial that -- thanks to McConnell -- will likely be a process controlled by a Democratic majority, and under oath. Yes, it takes 2/3 to convict, but only a simple majority to allow the House managers to subpoena who they want and throw away the claim of Presidential privilege -- that doesn't even exist in an impeachment trial.
But I would push to have him under oath in-front of a judge and jury, in his 2nd degree murder trial.
The militias intention to storm the Capitol was posted on their social media. They posted that they wanted Nancy and Pence dead.
Dont you know that secret service had advised him not to appear in person in the presence of armed nuts?
He knew, he wanted this, and likely hoped for a massacre.
Domestic seem that hard to prove, just need national security folks to testify.
and I remember reading that Nancy Pelosi also spoke to someone in charge of the police before Jan 6 advising them to be prepared for whatever could occur.
In this Impeachment trial, the Senate will be doing their job to obtain testimony and evidence. I'm sure they will be happy to pass it along to law enforcement agencies if appropriate
Yup, I don't watch the Piece of Shit very much but I believe this was the first time he was behind BP glass. We watched him whip himself as well as the mob into a frenzy. All that seething breathing between his teeth, cos his nose is so stuffed with coke and adderal, you could just see the fervor.The 20th can't come soon enough...
were the reason Barr ducked out of the administration when he did.
