The Jan. 6 select committee has unloaded a vast database of its underlying evidence — emails between Trump attorneys, text messages among horrified White House aides and outside advisers, internal communications among security and intelligence officials — all coming to grips with Donald Trump’s last-ditch effort to subvert the 2020 election and its disastrous consequences.
The panel posted thousands of pages of evidence late Sunday in a public database that provide the clearest glimpse yet at the well-coordinated effort by some Trump allies to help Trump seize a second term he didn’t win. Much of the evidence has never been seen before and, in some cases, adds extraordinary new elements to the case the select committee presented in public — from voluminous phone records to contemporaneous text messages and emails.
Hope Hicks was “so mad and upset” that “we all look like domestic terrorists now.” (Apparently it was only a problem because it made her look bad?)
Hope Hicks thought Trump’s attacks on Mike Pence on Jan 6 were a bridge too far: “WTF is wrong with him?” (Okay, so she draws the line at murder. Everyone has to have standards!)
The Trump administration considered court-martialing retirees who criticized Trump.
Michael Flynn’s idea/plan to use “martial law” to seize voting machines or involve the military in Donald Trump’s effort to remain in power was apparently a bridge too far for his brother who SAYS he doesn’t agree with those views. (Not sure I’m convinced.)
Mike Milley classified a boatload of Jan 6 documents “at a pretty high level” to preserve them for likely future investigations.
