Rep. Plaskett said on MSNBC’s Velshi, “As you may recall, one of the things the impeachment managers discussed was this ideological war that we believed would not end. That was one of the reasons we asked all of these 100 senators to vote to condemn Donald Trump. This uprising was, in fact, treason. It was, in fact, an attempt to overthrow our government. Because I believe that many of these senators have spread these lies, the war continues. The ideological civil war between democracy and autocracy. “
The reason Republicans don’t want a 1/6 commission or any investigation into the Capitol attack is because it always returns to the same place that Rep. Plaskett referred to.
The Republican Party has become an anti-democratic party of treason.
Trump is jumping back on the political stage speaking at the Republican Congress in North Carolina, and soon he’ll be kicking off his oldies tour disguised as rallies in at least four states.
Republicans want Trump’s voters without Trump because the ex-president is bringing the baggage to overthrow the government.
One vote for every Republican Trump loyalist is treason. Blocking an investigation into the 1/6 attack is treason.
In short, Trump is treason.
