Make no mistake my fellow citizens, had Trump pulled off his coup on January 6th, McConnell and the Republican Party would have been right with him now. There is no turning back, we must help the Republican Party as we know it self destruct or our democracy itself self destructs.
"Before the insurrectionist assault on the US Capitol, there was an attempted coup at the Justice Dept."-
Trump entertained plan to install an attorney general who would help him pursue baseless election fraud
BREAKING: ⬇️ So like the “perfect” Ukraine call: announce fake investigation to mislead the electorate. More Trump election fraud. And the match that lit 1/6 sedition.
Trump and Justice Dept. Lawyer Said to Have Plotted to Oust Acting Attorney General
Trump pressure campaign constitutes election fraud and points to need for federal investigation to speak to all those pressured: Barr, AAG Rabbitt, Wray, Secretaries of State, US Attorney in GA....
Expect more to come out now. Lids off
When Barr left Dec. 23, I said I was alarmed about Trump and DOJ, and I wasn’t confident Rosen would stand up to illegal efforts by Trump. Rosen did, and deserves credit for doing so. But what Trump tried to have DOJ do was worse than anything Nixon tried.
Trump summoned Rosen, wanting the Justice Department to file legal briefs supporting his allies’ lawsuits. And he urged Rosen to appoint special counsels to investigate unfounded accusations of widespread fraud. But Rosen refused, per @ktbenner.
A key point in this piece: Trump was deterred by the possibility that there could be political consequences, and “recriminations.” Evidence that not convicting him the first time made him feel invincible, and that impeaching him again was 💯 the right move
🚨SEDITION: Trump plotted with Jeffrey Clark—acting head of DOJ’s civil division—to oust & replace Acting AG Rosen & wield DOJ’s power to force #Georgia lawmakers to overturn its election results.
DOJ department heads then said they’d QUIT in protest.
BREAKING NEWS: "DOJ's leaders listened in stunned silence: One of their peers, they were told, had devised a plan with President Trump to oust acting AG Jeffrey Rosen and wield DOJ's power to force Georgia lawmakers to overturn its 2020 election results."
EXTRAORDINARY STORY by @ktbenner on how Trump and a little-known Justice Dept. lawyer secretly plotted with Trump to OUST the Acting Attorney General just before his term ended as Trump sought to overturn the election results. Nearly a coup at DOJ.
@PressSec Will @POTUS please grant my daughter Reality Leigh Winner clemency and bring her home?
This young veteran acted to gove America the truth about Russian attacks on our voting systems and was thrown in prison. She has paid her debt. Please #FreeRealityWinner
