Rage tears moment: Shaye Moss describing how a gang invaded her grandmother’s house searching for Shaye and her mother, who were just doing their jobs as civil employees helping with the election.
Why can’t they all be like Rusty Bowers? If Republicans returned to their roots of putting Country over Party, they might not be branded in such fascist tones. Bowers, the Republican Arizona House Speaker, lived up to his oath of office and demonstrated his patriotism by flatly refusing to assist in Trump’s scheme. I may dislike his politics, but I respect his sense of honor.
Trump gonna Trump: Donald Trump and Rudy Guiliani promised Bowers information on the fraudulent ballots would be delivered right away. It was never delivered. Kinda like Trump’s patented, “Everything’ll be done in two weeks. Two weeks! I’ll get it to you in two weeks!”
No one was spared the Trump wrath: Testimony shows that harassment at elections officials’ homes was coordinated and targeted key officials in a number of states, from Georgia elections workers to Arizona elections officials to the Michigan Secretary of State. Extremists were making death threats to people, and those extremists were created by Donald Trump and the conservative media confederation.
The conspiracy is becoming clearer: In a very neat package, the committee started focusing the picture on Donald Trump and his key lieutenants. I believe that sharper picture on Trump will widen as more testimony comes, linking various characters and their actions, to Trump and his campaign. In this chapter, Trump was directly linked to the plot to install fake electors. This book is a page-turner.
Trump is the linchpin: Donald called the RNC to have Ronna (not-Romney) McDaniel put pressure on politicians across the country to support his coup plot. They were not acting without Trump’s knowledge, his consent and his full endorsement.
The absolutely last choice: If you’re planning a coup to overthrow the duly elected successor, do you really want a critical portion of that in the hands of Ron Johnson? Would Ron Johnson seriously be in the Top 100 of People on Whom the Coup Hinges? And by the way, what happened to those documents? Are they in Johnson’s office? … ’cause we have a name for those papers: evidence.
