Nor is it the part the Secret Service is anonymously denying.
One thing I find implausible -- that DJT wanted to be actively involved in the violence on January 6. His history is sucker-punching teachers and stiffing tradesmen. I think he'd have stood on the sidewalk and cheered on the hoodlums.— Charles P. Pierce (@CharlesPPierce) June 29, 2022
And the first thing Cassidy Hutchinson said in live testimony yesterday was that she spoke to Giuliani before Jan 6 and he said Trump was going to lead the crowd into the Capitol on that day, and Trump was going to be "big."
Adding: here it is:
As they were heading to Giuliani's car, he asked her if she was "excited" for January 6, she testified.When she asked what was happening on that day, Hutchinson testified that Giuliani "responded something to the effect of, 'We're going to the Capitol,'" Hutchinson said."'It's going to be great. The president's going to be there. He's going to look powerful. He's going to be with the members. He's going to be with the senators. Talk to the chief about it. Talk to the chief about it. He knows about it.'"
That was on January 4th. That's what all the comparisons to Mussolini are based on today. Not just the car ride, but what Giuliani said ahead of time.
Nobody is denying Trump wanted to go to the Capitol; not even Trump. Who am I to do it for him?
