Donald Trump is in a sticky wicket or up to his neck, gulp, gulp! The January 6th Committee says so, and so does his daughter Ivanka. "I agreed with Attorney General William Barr." She didn't add because Bill Barr called her father's voter fraud allegations, Bull shit.
But they were bull shit.
Mr. Trump, however, dismissed his daughter's testimony as unreliable because she had, in his words, "Checked out." Whatever that means.
According to the January 6th committee, Donald sat on his hands during the insurrection, loving the criminal break-in of the Capitol. He wasn't willing to call in the National Guard, SWAT team, US Military, Rangers, Seal Team 6, or anyone who could prevent and stop the Capitol break-in. Instead, Trump was gleefully watching the carnage from the safety of his smaller office next to the Oval Office.
Witnesses say that Trump spoke approvingly when rioters called for hanging Vice President Mike Pence. Trump didn't call in anyone to protect his Vice President but said of Pence, "Mike Pence deserves it."
Mike Pence finally made the telephone calls to save lives and stop the insurrection.
January 6th remains a threat greater than 9/11. The first time terrorists attempted to bring down the World Trade Center, the terrorists' plan failed. The government subsequently ignored it. Unfortunately, the second attempt on 9/11, it worked.
January 6th was the first attempt to stop the transfer of power and destroy the US Democracy. Those responsible must be held accountable and not ignored. Unfortunately, the second attempt at an insurrection may work.
January 6th was Trump's baby. Gulp, gulp!
