A Few Thoughts on Yesterday’s Jan. 6 Hearings

In no particular order: It’s absolutely clear Jan. 6 was not a spontaneous riot, but a planned, coordinated event. Trump knew what was happening and did nothing to prevent it I’ve criticized Speaker Pelosi often, but she, unlike many people … Continue reading
