An utterly destructive day in American History could have been even worse. Wayne Gerdes – CleanMPG – Jan. 8, 2021 Capitol police with guns drawn on Trump insurgents as they attempt to break into the House of Representatives Chamber. I have not seen the story yet but putting the pieces together, the Capitol insurrection was not just a sitting Presidents attempt at a Coup d'etat, it may have been something far more sinister. How about Attempted Murder! It was in early November of last year when POTUS Trump removed a number of Senior Defense officials and replaced them with unqualified subordinate lackeys so as to leave the Capitol or anywhere else in the world essentially undefended on his orders at any time. "Shake-Up At Pentagon Puts Trump Loyalists Into Senior Roles" On Dec. 18th, 2020, Trump held an Oval Office meeting with the QAnon conspiracy theorist/attorney Sidney Powell and her client, former national security adviser Michael Flynn. The meeting turned into a screaming match as Trump aides pushed back on Powell and Flynn's more outrageous suggestions about overturning the election. Flynn had suggested that Trump could invoke martial law as part of his efforts to overturn the election that he lost to President-elect Joe Biden. POTUS Trump, who has refused to concede his loss to Democratic President-elect Joe Biden, has numerous times via tweet and FB posts urged his supporters to come to Washington for a rally on Wednesday, January 6th, 2021, the day the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate were certifying the Presidential Election results of the Electoral College. Just prior and during the Electoral College count, POTUS Trump, Don Jr., and Guliani enticed supporting rioters to attack the Capitol “With Force”. Giuliani: "Trial by Combat" was possibly the most enticing statement at Wednesdays Washington DC rally. The Trump family in particular "surely, albeit silently, had hoped" that the rioters were going to murder Politicians from both sides of the aisle while he held the National Guard at bay for over an hour and a half. It would have allowed him to declare Martial Law and under said Declaration, all barriers of power would have been removed. What would the Declaration allow? Trump would immediately have placed the military in charge with his lackeys creating their own “rule of law” to implement and enforce curfews and keep people in their homes. It has been suggested by a convicted and now pardoned former Trump Cabinet member that the military could force states to rerun elections and stop members of Congress from certifying President-elect Joe Biden’s electoral college win. There is no legal precedent or written law that provides for this scenario to succeed but the possibility is always a “Clear and Present Danger” and one that has been discussed within the Trump Administration more than once. The Coup attempt time lines progression was most prescient when listening to the Governor of Maryland who had his states troops ready but was not authorized to engage for over 90-minutes when a low level General finally called him and said, send in your support. "Maryland Governor Says Pentagon ‘Repeatedly Denied’ Approval To Send National Guard To Capitol" It appears from the Larry Hogan (R), Governor of MD, press conference, the lack of National Guard response was planned by the Trump Administration. This is akin to attempted murder at its worst. 5 are dead due to the storming of the Capitol building including U.S. Capitol Police Officer, Brian D. Sicknick. Adding to the story, moments ago, Twitter banned Trumps @realDonaldTrump account permanently for violation of its TOS. Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and other social media platforms have temporarily or permanently deactivated his access to their platforms of this writing.
