As Democrats move forward with the impeachment trial, they are arguing to the earth that the invaders at the Capitol riot on January 6 were acting on “the president’s orders.”
That is that foundation of their impeachment argument, which is weak at best.
The prosecutors were wrapping up their opening presentation, describing in stark, personal terms the horror they faced that day and pointing out what they claim were many public and explicit instructions Trump gave his supporters — both in the weeks before the Jan. 6 attack and at his midday rally that unleashed the mob on the Capitol.
“We were invited here,” said one. "Trump sent us,” said another. “He’ll be happy. We’re fighting for Trump.”
“They truly believed that the whole intrusion was at the president’s orders,” stated Rep. Diana DeGette. “The president told them to be there.”
Which is absolutely false. Trump was very clear, without room for speculation, when he told the rioters to go home and stated that we needed peace. He did not once call for the violence that occurred.
Joe Biden stated that “some minds may be changed” once senators see the security videos footage of the Capitol as rioters allegedly searched for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Vice President Mike Pence.
Trump’s lawyers will launch their defense Friday, and the trial could wrap by weekend.
The prosecutors on Thursday drew a direct line from his repeated comments condoning and even celebrating violence — praising “both sides” after the 2017 outbreak at the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, and urging his rally crowd last month to go to the Capitol and fight for his presidency.
“There’s a pattern staring us in the face,” said Rep. Jamie Raskin, D-Md., the lead prosecutor.
“When Donald Trump tells the crowd as he did on January 6 to fight like hell, or you won’t have a country anymore. He meant for them to fight like hell.”
