Lord Damp Nut Wanted to Attend The Riot…

The Stupid Coup, part infinity

Stable Jenius

from the comfort of the Beast:

Shortly before pro-Trump rioters stormed the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, Secret Service agents scrambled to try to secure a motorcade route so then-President Donald Trump could accompany his supporters as they marched on Congress to demand he stay in power, according to two people briefed on witnesses’ accounts to congressional investigators.

The agency had rebuffed Trump’s early entreaties, but the rushed effort on Jan. 6 to accommodate the president came as Secret Service personnel heard Trump urge his rally audience of nearly 30,000 people to march to the Capitol while suggesting he would join them. Their mission was clear, he said: pressure “weak” Republicans to refuse to accept the election results that made Joe Biden the next president.

“We’re going to walk down to the Capitol,” he told the crowd.

So… why didn’t he go?

Witnesses have told the House Jan. 6 committee that, immediately after Trump made that remark, Secret Service agents contacted D.C. police about blocking intersections, according to the people briefed on the testimony. Police officials declined, as they were stretched thin because they were monitoring numerous protests and later assisting with a growing mob at the Capitol, the people said. A senior law enforcement official told The Washington Post that the president’s detail leader scuttled the idea as untenable and unsafe.

Anyone still doubt that this was an insurrection planned by Hair Füror?

Tomorrow night —17 months after twice-impeached LOSER ex-Prznint Stupid tried to overturn the 2020 Goat Rodeo— the January 6 Committee will hold a prime-time hearing (the first of several) to reveal the findings of its year-long investigation into the events before, during, and after the coup attempt.

Axios reports that the panel has hired veteran news producer James Goldston to make the proceedings must-see TV.

    I hear James Goldston is planning on putting together a block bustering spectacle, so it should be interesting at the very least. I’m thinking the results will include numerous indictments, arrests, and consequent convictions. Hey, a guy can have a little hope…

    Imagine the carnage if TFG had been there egging them on every step of the way.

  3. Imagine what would have happened had the Tangerine Mussolini tried barging into the joint session for the EC stuff. This would have been a real Banana Republic move; he needs to be invited in; it’s an actual separation-of-powers thing.

    I’m pretty sure FAUX is going to be making up lots of crap for the next several days. [NOTE: There are always 10K migrants asylum seekers heading north towards the wild wild west of Murka on any given day.]

    From the Ellipse to the Capitol? Assumes golf cart not in evidence. Trump even complained about having to walk down the aisle of the National Cathedral for Bush Sr.’s funeral.

      To be fair, I would complain too. I’d want to skip down the aisle at Poppy’s Funeral, perhaps with a garland of flowers, and a shaken up bottle of champagne.
