  1. Trump actually faced very little direct questioning as president. His lawyers knew that he would dig his own grave if he answered questions under oath. Apart from his "helicopter noise" diatribes, continual tweets, and his rallies Trump avoided one to one interviews with journalists. The few times he did interviews (discounting Fox), he was appalling. His rambles about windmills and witchhunts were infantile. When seasoned journalists such as Jonathon Swan refused to let him control the interview, Trump demonstrated his ignorance about the pandemic, and how as president he had failed to listen to the very people he had hired to advise him.

  2. If they don't make the terrorist qult pay for their crimes against the United States of America. It will like they ran some mk ultra type experiment on American citizens

  3. Shocking how MSNBC, CNN still can't get enough of Trump. If not for him they would have nothing to talk about. Governor of NY has 11 counts of sexual misconduct but let's talk Trump.

  4. I doubt they truly want the truth about Jan 6 to come out. I'm sure that only a few will be even asked to testify and the ones that do, will probably have a script.

  5. Yes. The Socialists in 1930’s Germany were good at going after political enemies. They also controlled the government, press, and a legion of “useful idiots” to rule with an iron fist. 😳

  6. Trump got the hate groups all Stirred up then he told them to go to the Capital, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out what and who caused the insurrection!!! Even if he is called to Testify you know he will lie that is all he knows to do!! All I know if you let him get away with the insurrection he will try it again!

  7. There still has not been any members of Congress punished on any way. All 139 house Representatives and the 8 senators should have been removed sectíon 3 of the 14th amendment. It's not an option. It is the law. Instead these people are still in power and slowed to make divisions on our nation.

  8. Trump and his aids violated our constitution. Committed sedition and promoted inserection. They need to go to prison. Period. Trump invited violence,was the cause of several felony murders. He has done way more against this country than the Rosenbergs, and they were executed.

  9. I'm so tired of the claims of executive privilege. The rule of law and the constitution do not allow this. No man in this country is so high that he is above the law. No officer of the law may set that law at defiance with impunity. All officers of the government, from the highest to the lowest, are creatures of the law and are bound to obey it. . . . Incumbency does not relieve the President of the routine legal obligations that confine all citizens." Now either prosecute Trump and his followers are I'll see you in court. I'm tired of politicians breaking the rules and our justice department allowing it.

  10. Of course he did it or communicated it in the same manner as a mob boss puts a hit out. They don’t email it, text it, say it in code or the objective was made clear in his language. All those that spoke to the mob that day are guilty planners and inciters of the coup.

  11. Trump is guilty of manslaughter at the very least. His speech the morning of the insurrection is damning to his case of inciting a coup d’tre. He lead the blind to to do the hit. Enough lives were lost that he was responsible for. He effectively put out a contract killing of Mike Pence and Nancy Pelosi the 2 people in succession to the POTUS.

  12. The Democratic Socialists are trying to get the Peoples eye's off them . So they again turn and try to pursue President Trump again! Democratic Socialists can't leave him alone! They need him to point fingers and have someone to blame! As well as you Socialist supporting news media!!🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸
