The 1/6 Committee has the evidence directly from the coup plotters that Trump participated in the coup. Trump was there. Trump was participating in a treasonous plot to destroy American democracy and keep himself in power.
Why was Trump addressing a meeting of coup plotters if he wasn’t involved in the coup?
Republicans have said that the 7-hour gap in Trump’s 1/6 phone records is normal because he always violated the Presidential Records Act. The DOJ is actively investigating the role of officials in Trump’s orbit in the plot. Attorney-General Garland needs to expand that investigation to get to the next step up in the food chain because it is clear that the plotters didn’t stop at a level below the Oval Office.
The plotting involved the President Of The United States working with his accomplices to overturn a democratic election.
