The Trump White Home wasn’t very covert about their contacts with the insurrectionists who attacked the Capitol.
Media Matters uncovered some new video:
In a newly found video from a December 19 “Cease the Steal” rally in Arizona, organizer Ali Alexander bragged about being “on the cellphone” with “individuals from the White Home” and appeared to encourage bodily violence towards members of Congress and different politicians who he claimed helped “steal” the election. This rally occurred simply weeks earlier than the Capitol riot.
At that very same rally, Alexander appeared to advocate for bodily assaults towards members of Congress who he mentioned helped “steal” the election, calling it a “ethical obligation” to take action.
The Trump White Home knew concerning the insurrectionists. The truth that they’d been in touch with them earlier than January 6 is a sign that Donald Trump knew what he was doing when he incited the gang to march on the Capitol. The assault was Trump’s final gasp effort to make use of violence in a bid to carry on to energy.
Alexander’s statements ought to be used as proof towards Trump at his second impeachment trial. It seems that the Trump White Home didn’t simply incite the riot. They appear to have inspired and fanned the flames till a crowd that was already primed for violence stormed the Capitol.
