“If you open that can of worms, we’ll want the FBI to come in and tell us about how people pre-planned this attack and what happened with the security footprint at the Capitol.”
Those are the words of Senator Lindsey Graham regarding the second impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump.
How exactly is this a threat to Democrats? Is there something we are not aware of?
In my view, inviting the FBI to talk about the three-hour planning meeting held at the White House with Rep.elect Marjorie Greene and “several Republicans” on overturning the Electoral College vote would be an illuminating conversation. (see previous post)
We know the Commission that oversees the Capitol Police forbid the use of guns and cut the number of police on duty to an ordinary day’s component. Even though there were tens of thousands of MAGA supporters who had been whipped up to a high froth by the likes of Alex Jones and Rudy Giuliani, among others, the police staffing was not increased. You can watch the videos of both of them on the internet.
Was Senator Lindsey Graham perhaps also sending a warning to the President’s defense counsel? If they bring in one witness, Senator Graham will go all in and let the President’s conspiracy committee be exposed for what it really was?
And me? I’m thinking the FBI is doing its job and that President Biden trusts Christopher Wray (Director of the FBI) and that is why he kept him on. He counts on Wray to conduct an impartial inquiry into the actions and the actors who planned this event and whether they took any orders from the WH cabal that held a 3-hour planning meeting 9 days prior to January 6th.
The question remains, Who was Sen. Lindsey Graham actually talking to?
And is there a connection between House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s trip to former President Donald Trump, and this WH planning session, and the impeachment process, and then all of Donald Trump’s legal team quitting? So many questions and so few facts, and so little information.
I know everyone wants this to go away. But I have to say, I’m expecting a series of indictments for those anonymous Republicans engaged in a 3-hour planning meeting at the White House.
Perhaps the WH visitor logs will tell the story…if Biden and the Executive Branch lawyers will turn them over to the WH Press Corps. They were requested today.
