    Appears Humpty Dumpty going to Fall

    Jan. 6 Panel Secures Deal for Cipollone to Be Interviewed
    The former White House counsel pushed back on President Donald J. Trump’s efforts to overturn the 2020 election and was in the West Wing to witness his actions on Jan. 6, 2021.

    Nobody wants to go to Jail for the Traitor

    1. For Trump, the crowd was armed, dangerous and welcome.

    The former president knew the crowd had weapons, knew of the intelligence that violence could come on Jan. 6, but according to a White House aide, he didn't care.

    Why?

    "They're not here to hurt me," he said, per Cassidy Hutchinson, former aide to Trump Chief of Staff Mark Meadows. "Take the effing mags away. Let my people in. They can march to the Capitol from here."

    Hutchinson said Trump was "furious" that people who were armed on Jan. 6 were deterred by metal detectors, or magnetometers, and thereby making his crowd appear smaller.

    2. A president with a flash temper and desperate to hold onto power.

    Throwing plates at the wall because he was upset that his attorney general said there was no widespread fraud in the 2020 election.

    Grabbing the steering wheel of a presidential vehicle, because he so badly wanted to go to the Capitol with the rioters.

    Hutchinson painted a picture of a president unhinged. This isn't the first time people around Trump have described a man with a temper who demanded fealty.

    Multiple witnesses during these hearings have described a president who couldn't accept the truth, would find people to tell him what he wanted to hear, had descended down a deep rabbit hole of conspiracy and was willing to do whatever it took in a desperate effort to cling to power that was slipping through his fingers.

    3. No one was too big or too small for Trump's pressure campaign.

    From as high up as his former vice president Mike Pence all the way down to GOP state elections officials and election workers, no one was spared from Trump's persistent goading.

    "You heard him, Pat. He thinks Mike deserves it," Meadows told White House lawyer Pat Cipollone, per Hutchinson, about the crowd chanting, "Hang, Mike Pence!"

    (Cipollone may himself be compelled to testify soon. The committee has subpoenaed him.)

    Publicly, including in ad-libbed portions of his speech on Jan. 6, Trump has said multiple times that Pence didn't have the "courage" to do what he wanted. At a recent rally, Trump derided Pence as a "conveyor belt."

    Trump wrongly accused Georgia election worker Shaye Moss of altering votes because of a video he irresponsibly talked about.

    She testified that her personal life had been ruined since.

    "I've gained about 60 pounds. I just don't do nothing anymore," Moss said. "I don't want to go anywhere. I second guess everything that I do. It's affected my life in a in a major way. In every way. All because of lies. For me doing my job, same thing I've been doing forever."

    4. The potential for criminal prosecution may be growing.

    A scheme for fake electors. Knowledge of the potential for violence. The lack of caring about that violence.

    A White House lawyer concerned about potential obstruction of Congress and defrauding the country charges.

    Members of Congress and others inside Trump's inner circle asking for pardons.

    And now oblique threats against committee witnesses.

    "I think most Americans know that attempting to influence witnesses to testify untruthfully presents very serious concerns," Committee Vice Chair Liz Cheney, R-Wyo. said.

    The committee is leaving lots of bread crumbs for prosecutors to peck at.
