Ex-White House aide Cassidy Hutchinson on Tuesday testified that former President Trump and his former chief of staff Mark Meadows were both told attendees at a Jan. 6, 2021, rally had weapons, and that Trump was frustrated that those with weapons were turned away.

Trump knew they were armed.

They're not here to hurt me. Take the ---- mags away,'" Hutchinson testified.

So much for the lie that the "peaceful tourists" were not armed.

And apparently Trumpy even tried to make sure they got in with their weapons.

More criminal negligence from the previous guy. He actually tried to help them get to the capital with weapons by actively trying to remove the magnetometers.

Its apparent that a real "coup attempt" took place with the lives of anybody in the capitol complex being secondary to the coup's success.

Those that survived were lucky?

How will we respond?

@#1 ... So much for the lie that the "peaceful tourists" were not armed. ...

This sort of testimony makes me wonder just how much of what happened was known by those who proffered those cover-up stories and explanations?

We need a national cleansing of all these rightwing traitors who participated in or supported the Jan. 6 attempted coup. They hate the equality and liberty America stands for. They are willing to use violence to overthrow our democracy. Most of them clearly seem to believe that America is for white people primarily. We need a cleansing. Or better yet, a reckoning.

Eb, if it makes you feel any better, the only ones at any risk of being "cleansed" in America currently are liberals such as myself.

Except they say it because of race, which is not a choice.

We say it because we have to save our democracy from fascists, which they CHOOSE to be. Like you CHOOSE to vote for their party and support them.

Okay, this is actually news that could help build a legal case for criminal liability on the part of Trump, if the testimony continues to stand up. Unlike the so-called "fake electors" scheme that people were huffing and puffing about earlier.

So called? They were trying to replace the electors that voters voted for with ones that they didn't. How is that a SO CALLED scheme?

It doesn't make me feel better. I don't disagree with you, however.

#10 I haven't seen anyone say the fake electors scheme creates liability for Trump; i've seen many rightly say the fake electors themselves should be prosecuted.

So called? The paperwork was filed and the fake electors owned up to it.

Some of y'all need serious professional help.

I pains me to say it but Bush jr. was spot on when he said trumps actions were something we see in Banana republics not America.

This is how you guys talk about someone who says Trump deserves to be held legally accountable for his role in the 1/6 riots. And then you wonder why you can't keep independents on your side.

You guys deserved Trump.

I think he also had a high-minded photo-op vision of personally leading the barnstorming of the House chambers to stop the certification.

That would have made some interesting evidence at his trial.

Just because you sprinkle that in amongst otherwise blatant idiocy does not mean anyone has to be nice to you.

I thought about that. Would he have his troops carry him in? Would he tell them that he'd catch up later and claim the crown when he felt better?

Tiberius thought the Romans deserved Caligula.

Tiberius was a vicious old man sponsoring a vicious young one.

No human person deserves to live under people like Donald Trump.

We won't survive another round of Republicans control. Jan 6 was a trial run and too many Republicans wanted it to succeed. When the Republicans retake the House and Senate the guardrails will come off. The filibuster will disappear and with a Republican President any crimes committed by Republicans will be pardoned.

You're on record as voting FOR that. So is your statement a warning, or cause for celebration?

No, you've got a direct question.

You're on record as planning to vote straight Republican. You're also on record predicting disaster and doom if/when Republicans are elected. Why are you planning to vote for disaster and doom?
