Donald Trump and Republicans have done their best to shut down any investigation into the January 6th attacks. They failed, however, and the committee has spent the last couple of weeks holding hearings.
Throughout the hearings, it has become clear why Trump and his allies were trying to shut them down. According to MSNBC’s Ari Melber, Team Trump is now preparing for the worst-case scenarios.
The host began, “We are tracking news in the insurrection probe with further fallout and cracks after that blockbuster testimony against Trump has really ricocheted around the nation. the testimony linked trump to the violence of that coup attempt, turbocharging Trumpworld anxieties as they prep for even worst-case scenarios.”
Melber continued, “Take the Republican prosecutor we have cited before, Andrew McCarthy. He’s a Fox News favorite who wrote a whole book defending Trump in the Mueller probe and accusing others of pushing the real collusion, which is one reason he is on Fox quite a bit and has a huge conservative legal following.”
The host closed, “He says, when you look at the evidence, as a criminal-legal matter, it is devastating against Trump and that the new evidence in that hearing makes a big difference. He is saying this in public and this week he is now emphasizing that really as far as he is concerned, for the first time, there is now direct evidence showing Trump committed crimes, and backed violence.”
