Leftist educators will see whatever they want to see when it comes to the hearings on the January 6 Capitol “riot” and some are even going as far as to accuse former President Donald Trump, of attempting to murder his then Vice President Mike Pence.
Harvard Law professor emeritus Laurence Tribe said Thursday on CNN’s “Erin Burnett OutFront” that former President Donald Trump attempted to murder Vice President Mike Pence on January 6, 2021.
Burnett asked, “From everything you have seen so far, including the hearing today that focused so much on Trump causing violence against Pence, do you believe the committee has proven that Trump himself knowingly committed crimes?”
Tribe said, “Without any doubt, beyond a reasonable doubt, beyond any doubt, and the crimes are obvious. The most obvious was that he was ordering his vice-president to do what everyone in the room knew would be illegal, namely, exercise power to pick the next president. It would be very convenient if Al Gore could have picked himself as the next president in 2000, very convenient if Richard Nixon could have done it in 1960.”
He continued, “Ordering your vice-president to violate the law in order to stay in power is a very serious federal crime, but there are other crimes as well. One that occurred to several people today is attempted murder. You know, under the criminal code of the United States, the attempted murder of the vice-president is punishable by life imprisonment. What we saw with the president egging the crowd on, telling them that, basically, his own vice-president was a traitor while he knew that the mob had gallows waiting for him, that’s pretty serious stuff. You don’t have to go to law school to know that there’s something seriously criminal about that. There are other crimes that have been proven. Those are plenty to start with.”
Except Trump did not make a call to those who attended his Jan 6 rally in Washington D.C, to perpetrate violence against Pence and the crowd were made up of patriots who also supported the former VP.
Since then, it has become clear that there were in fact FBI “assets” in the crowd, one specifically named Ray Epps, who were attempting to incite the crowd to “hold the line” and “storm” the capitol.
The fact of the matter is that there were hundreds of thousands of people there that day, some say over one million in attendance and the outcome could have been a lot worse than a few smashed windows at the Capitol Building if the crowd were truly “out for blood.”
These hearings are nothing more than a witch-hunt, a way to shut down those people who disagreed with the 2020 presidential election results – which evidence since then has suggested was at the very least, severely tampered with.
Dinesh D’Souza documents in his movie “2000 Mules” the lengths that certain groups went to in order to cheat their way to the win – including stuffing mail-in ballots into drop boxes in the middle of the night.
No doubt the upcoming Midterms will be fraught with fraud too.
