That is how intimidation works
You back it up with a threat of force

That was the purpose of the TRUMPmob
I'm not even disagreeing with you. I'm just telling you it's not going to be easy to convict a billionaire or accomplish anything meaningful with that.

He would go through with letting his supporters scare the Repubs into going along with his desire for them to not follow their constitutional duties.

Which is what Republicans did on Jan 6
They emerged from hiding to vote to decertify election results

I think he's as pushy and intimidating as he can be without putting himself in real danger. I think Trump is a coward at the end of the day.

I agree, that is why he went to the White House instead of marching with his followers like he said he would.

How do you get him in court with this?

You dont. Nothing will happen to Trump over this or anything else.

So it's probably not very productive for the left to be so focused on it. I think what will impress people is positivity, creativity and new ideas.

No more or less productive than "LOCK HER UP",

We have not seen positivity, creativity and new ideas come out of DC in my lifetime.

BIG agree

That's what we need though.

But we will never get it because people have been programed to hate the other side, so all that matters is the right side winning. Whether they suck or not is irrelevant

Never. I have not....though I have gotten far more serious about retiring outside of the country than I ever thought I would be

November 2 was the insurrection.

Jan 6 was the protest.

Why do they keep calling Pelosi's Reichstag Fire and "Insurrection" when not a single person was charged with insurrection?


OOoo....call on me!!

It's because Democrats lie about everything.



AOC Still Peddling Lies About Jan. 6: “Almost 10 dead”

Glenn Greenwald: “Claiming that there is ‘almost 10 dead’ from the 1/6 riot is deceitful in the extreme. Four people died on 1/6: all Trump supporters.”


There are some members of Congress who are more clueless and some who are more outrageous, but few are as clueless and outrageous as New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC).

She again demonstrated her knack for being both clueless and outrageous by tweeting misinformation about January 6th and falsely claiming that there were “almost 10 dead.”




The one and only person who died of direct violence on January 6th was Ashli Babbitt, a Trump supporter shot to death by Capitol police officer Michael Byrd.

Because everything that can possibly go wrong for Democrats is going wrong, the consensus seems to be that it’s best to continue hyping the events of January 6th as the near-collapse of our entire federal government at the hands of a few hundred unarmed selfie-takers and “paraders” along with a smattering of also unarmed, but violent, rioters.

All the eye rolls.”

Sorry bot. The officers that committed suicide because of PTSD get counted too.
And of those, Babbitt was the only one who got herself killed on purpose.
The other three that died that day....died from being out of shape.

I often hear people talk about January 6th as if it was Trump's attempt to overthrow our republic.
Who, specifically, is telling you that?

Trump's goons were obviously intent on overthrowing a democratic election on January 6, but do whomever you claim to hear explain why they believe Trump's goons were attempting to destroy our republic?

2:39 p.m. Trump tweets: “Please support our Capitol Police and Law Enforcement. They are truly on the side of our Country. Stay peaceful!

Does that seem like the language of a man that was ready to start killing people and taking over the government by force?
2:00 p.m.: As a violent mob breached the Capitol building, Trump accidentally phoned Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, while trying to reach Sen. Tommy Tuberville, R-Alabama. Lee reportedly handed the phone to the Alabama senator, according to CNN and Utah's Deseret News.
Tuberville revealed Thursday night that he spoke to Trump and informed him Pence had been evacuated from the Senate chamber, which happened at about 2:15 p.m., House impeachment managers said.

The president reportedly told Tuberville to continue to object to the election results in order to buy more time, which House prosecutors pointed out in their opening argument. Lee dismissed that account as inaccurate, prompting House impeachment managers to withdraw the comments that were quoted from the news report.

2:24 p.m.: Minutes after it was reported Pence was escorted out of the Senate chamber and Trump reportedly spoke to Tuberville, the president attacks Pence in a tweet.

“Mike Pence didn’t have the courage to do what should have been done to protect our Country and our Constitution, giving States a chance to certify a corrected set of facts, not the fraudulent or inaccurate ones which they were asked to previously certify. USA demands the truth!”


============================

I think his behavior prior to the tweet at 2:39 indicates far more about his mindset.

Do you really think he would have done that? Let's say crazy right wingers had taken a bunch of politicians hostage and shit had really hit the fan in Washington. How many of you believe Trump would actually have endorsed that? Because if Trump hadn't been willing to do that our republic could not have actually been in danger of being overthrown, right? He would have had to endorse political force and take charge of that attack.

2:39 p.m. Trump tweets: “Please support our Capitol Police and Law Enforcement. They are truly on the side of our Country. Stay peaceful!

Does that seem like the language of a man that was ready to start killing people and taking over the government by force?


1. Jan 6th Riot occurs.

2. trump declares martial law

3. trump says he can't let the election be decided until after the crisis is over

Selectively editing the effusions of the Cry Baby Loser concerning his goons who attacked the Capitol based upon his lying to them concerning the legitimacy of the U.S. presidential election fails.

Did he also tell his goons who assaulted the outnumbered police that he loved them? Indeed, he did.

Trump's goons tried to overthrow, by force, a democratic election, the results of which had been certified by all 50 states, and they failed to do so. The legislature and the Vice President still fulfilled their Constitutional responsibilities after the Trump goons were thrwarted.

Despite the strident raving of some of the Trump goons, no officeholder was hanged.

Hundreds have been identified, apprehended, indicted, and are being prosecuted.

A Capitol riot suspect was persuaded to storm the building on Jan. 6 after spending hours watching Fox News and listening to former President Donald Trump's election fraud lies, his lawyer said.
Anthony Antonio, 27, of Delaware, was arrested last month on five federal charges including knowingly entering or remaining on restricted grounds without lawful authority; violent entry and disorderly conduct; impeding law enforcement during civil disorder; disrupting Congress; and damaging government property.
Joseph Hurley, a Delaware-based lawyer: “He became hooked with what I call ‘Foxitus’ or ‘Foxmania’ and became interested in the political aspect and started believing what was being fed to him."
