They knew as early as 10 am that knives, guns, and spears were present in the crowd gathered for his speech on January 6. Despite this, while safe in their offices and bowing to Trump’s petulance, the National Guard was not deployed. A feeble response delayed.

The insurrection was met with their inaction.

Cassidy Hutchinson’s testimony today has exposed the Trump administration’s complicity and incompetence and guilt during those hours on January 6, 2021. Trump is guilty, and so are many others.

“I don’t care if they have weapons — they’re not here to hurt me. They can march to the Capitol from here. Take the fucking mags away.” — Donald Trump

The evidence is there.

He advocated violence and insurrection.

He risked everything for wounded pride.

Arrest him, and bring him to trial.

America, please, continue to watch and follow the January 6 Commission.
