Glenn Kirschner breaks it down very simply these days. Three dates, three incriminating statements, a plan, coordinated actions taken in furtherance of the plan, all the elements of conspiracy to disrupt an official proceeding and other felonies.
Trump recruits a private army, activates them for a future date and launches them January 6th to attack Congress and stop the proceedings, to prevent the constitutional transfer of power. On January 6 Trump’s mob stopped all business in the Capitol after violently assaulting police and breaching the building.
September 29th 2020, Trump shows up at debate with Biden infectious with covid-19, lying about his test results (he’ll be helicoptered to a hospital for emergency covid treatment a few days later) spewing toward a hated opponent in the most vulnerable demographic for death by covid, looks into the camera and grimly says “Proud Boys stand back and stand by.” The Proud Boys shout back at him with gusto for his shout out to them.
December 18, 2020 he activates his most violently inclined followers to assemble on January 6th to fight election fraud. He ends a tweet repeatedly touting knowingly false stolen elections claims with a personal invitation “Be there, will be wild.” They again shout back at him approvingly.
On January 6, 2021 when all these guys show up for a wild time, he launches them toward the Capitol, warning them “we fight like hell. And if you don’t fight like hell, you’re not going to have a country anymore.”
Is more proof required to show the desperate defeated candidate’s criminal intent to solicit and unleash a private army to commit this federal crime? More proof needed of a deliberate, premeditated, coordinated action plan and many acts done to carry it out? Merrick? Are we all missing something here?
