  1. Defense lawyer: “I am on the side of the prosecution. Oh I mean, the defense. Don’t worry, I know what side I’m on.”
    America: “You sure about that? 🤔😂🤣 “

    1. ROFLOL right! Then said he’s a liar about him saying the election was rigged and stolen when they said, “The voters didn’t like the administration so they chose a new one..” .Wow, guess this is what you get when you’re known for not paying bills 🤣🤣

  2. Timeline:
    September 23, 2020: In response to a direct question, Trump refuses to say he will ensure a peaceful transfer of power if he loses the election.

     “Well,we’re going to have to see what happens.” He further raises alarms about a potential transition of power: “Get rid of the ballots and you’ll have a very peaceful — there won’t be a transfer, frankly. There will be a continuation.” 

    September 29, 2020: First Presidential Debate.
    when asked to condemn white suprema.cist mili.tias like the Proud Boys, Trump tells them to “Stand back and stand by,”

    November 13, 2020:
    In the aftermath of the 2020 presidential election, Trump’s allies spearhead a media campaign and a call to action of Trump supporters.

    “This is as serious a constitutional crisis as our nation has ever faced. We will only be the beacon of hope for the world if we are willing to stand with courage and integrity & defend our republic,” Mike Flynn tweets.
    Sidney Powell echos the statements, saying in an interview that “This is essentially a new American revolution. And anyone who wants this country to remain free needs to step up right now.” 

    December 2, 2020: Viol.ent rhetoric by Trump’s allies continues as the Georgia Senate runoff race nears. 

    “We’re going to sla.y Goliath, the comm.unists, the liberals, the phonies. Joe Biden will never set foot in the Oval Office of this country. It will not happen on our watch. Never gonna happen,” Lin Wood claims at the Stop the Steal Rally in Alpharetta, Georgia.

    December 8, 2020: The official Twitter account of the Arizona GOP asks supporters whether they are willing to “d.l.e” for Trump.

    In response to a Stop the Steal tweet saying “I am willing to give my life for this fight,” the Arizona GOP tweets, “He is. Are you?” The GOP account also tweets a clip of the 2008 movie “Rambo,” as the character proclaims, “This is what we do, who we are. Live for nothing, or d.l.e for something.” 
    19 December 2020 – Be there, will be wild:
    At 1.42am in the early hours of 19 December Trump tweeted the lie that it was “statistically impossible” for him to have lost the presidential election. He gave his first notice of a “big protest in DC” on 6 January. “Be there, will be wild!” he said.

    19 December – The cavalry is coming:
    Within hours, fervent Trump supporters began to heed Trump’s rallying cry. Kylie Jane Kremer, founder of a Stop the Steal group banned by FB, picked up the notice about the march and ran with it. “The calvary is coming, Mr President!” she said.

    Trump retweeted Kremer’s post, saying: “A great honor!”

    1 January 2021 – You got to go to the streets and be vio.lent:
    Louie Gohmert responded in inflammatory terms to news that his federal lawsuit seeking to force Mike Pence to block certification of Biden’s victory had been dismissed.

    “The bottom line is, the court is saying, ‘We’re not going to touch this. You have no remedy’,” he told News.max. “Basically, in effect, the ruling would be that you got to go to the streets and be as vio.lent as An.tifa.”

    3 January– We will not go quietly into the night:
    Ted Cruz addressed a rally in Georgia. “We will not go quietly into the night. We will defend liberty. And we are going to win.”

    6 January – We’re coming for you:
    Don Jr, appeared as the warm-up carney act at the “Save America Rally” on the National Mall. He threatened the Republicans who, as he spoke, were preparing to vote on certifying the election result.

    “The people who did nothing to stop the steal. This gathering should send a message to them: This isn’t their Republican party any more. This is Donald Trump’s.”
    Then Don jr. said: “If you’re gonna be the zero and not the hero, we’re coming for you and we’re going to have a good time doing it!”

    6 January – Trial by combat:
    Rudy Giuliani, who has been a leading proponent of the falsehood that the election was fraudulently rigged, addressed the rally.

    “If we’re wrong, we will be made fo.ols of,” he said. “But if we’re right, a lot of them will go to jail. So let’s have trial by combat!!!!”

    6 January – We will not take it any more:
    Trump then addressed the crowd just outside the White House for more than an hour, urging them to march on the Capitol building. “We will not take it any more,” he said.

    “You’ll never take back our country with weakness. You have to show strength, and you have to be strong … I know everyone here will soon be marching over to the Capitol building.”
    The crowd followed his instructions and began marching on the Capitol.

    A USA Today analysis discovered that After Trump used the word “MARCH” one Parlor user wrote: “Time to fight. The civil war is upon us.” And another Parlor user said: “We are going to have a civil war. Get ready!!”

    The analysis by USA Today also found that the use of the phrase “civil war” increased nearly four times during Trump’s speech, as it was used on 156 separate occasions while he spoke.

    1. May I add trump also said the same thing when he debated Hillary. On President Biden ,he said can you believe I loose to him? Well he did loose to President Biden. Naked man.💯

  3. Trump tried to hire Saul Goodman from “Better Call Saul.” Then someone told him that Saul was simply a fictional character from a TV series. Trump wept. 😭

  4. And even after ALL of this he won’t be convicted….meanwhile regular Americans go straight to jail and sit til the prosecution can prove they’re guilty.

    1. once the senate has laid it all out, the courts can use all that information against Trump in criminal court.
      Once Trump is convicted, they can start going after all the enablers that continue to support his act of insurrection/terrorism because many of them were inciting the mob as well.
      The clean up on this is going to take some time, but it has to be complete.
      All the criminal conspirators need to see their day in court.
      With so much video evidence and their own words, it is going to be hard for them to get out of the criminal charges.
      I just find it ironic that so many of the people that were provoked were probably pro-First Amendment and, now, they will have that privilege taken away from them because they are felons.

  5. These trump lawyers graduated from Yale with Ivy League 8 stars………. I mean they actually graduated from trump university🤷‍♂️🤷‍♀️🤷‍♂️🤷‍♀️

  6. brilliantly said and shown, ty dr maddow! proud of the house managers! and it means that we won’t have to pay t****’s pension or perks when we convict him, and bar him from running again!

    1. “The Steal,” caused and Insurrection. “The Steal,” AIN’T REAL! Make the GOP ADMIT THAT, on the Witness Stand, for all of America to hear!? What choice will they have? Perjury? Conspiracy? A BILLION dollar lawsuit? ✌️

    2. @Ash Roskell
      “The American people just spoke, and they just changed administrations. . . (Americans) are smart enough to pick a new administration if they don’t like the old one, and they just did.”
      -Bruce Castor, lead impeachment attorney for Дурак Дон.

  7. lol Trump’s defense was indicative of his presidency. Nonsensical, incoherent, contradictory, hypocritical, and totally off point.

  8. Bruce Castor: ‘“My name is Bruce Castor, and I am the lead prosecutor — err — lead counsel for the 45th president of the United States … arrest my client.”

  9. They couldn’t even watch the video. Some were busy on a phone, some doodled with a pen on paper. They are shameless.

    1. They never had morals to begin with. They have built their house on deception since the 1950s when they were trying to destroy unions on behalf of corporations using the boogieman of communism. Now they are trying to scare people by saying that democrats want to take away their “good union jobs” that the republican party redefined itself to prevent. The only real difference with the modern republican party is that they have predictably devolved into a cult.

  10. No one will forget how the Republicans nearly took down our American democracy. We will also never forget how they are still trying to do so.

  11. Please, PLEASE, Dems! Just get the GOP on the stand, so we can hear it! “The Steal,” AIN’T REAL! From the mouths of the GOP! The reason for the Insurrection was a LIE!

  12. McConnel the Tortoise and his Turtles are hiding in their shells because they are afraid of SNAPPING TURTLE TRUMP.
