Rachel Maddow breaks down how Trump planned to use the Justice Department to overthrow the government.
Video of Rachel Maddow:
The main revelations today, the main points of the hearing today, we’re all about the U.S. Justice Department and how Trump plans to use the Justice Department to overthrow the government and stay in power. In this part of the plot, the Justice Department would essentially tell the country that Trump was right, there really was tons of fraud, swing states won by Biden probably really were not won by Biden.
The Justice Department would tell those swing states that they really should consider sending in Trump electors to the Electoral College instead of Biden electors. That was the plan for the Justice Department to play that role. And how would they carry out that plan? The vehicle for this part of the plan was this official Jeffrey Clark.
The plan was to fire the attorney general, replace him with this guy, and then this guy would enact the Trump plan, to have states that Biden won decertify their votes, to instead proclaim Trump had won those states and to have those states cast their Electoral College votes for Trump. Clark promised to carry it out. We got new detailed revelations about every step of how they tried to do that today.
I think that it’s pretty inarguable, though, that will be remembered most here from today’s hearing was the dramatic, almost cinematic testimony about how the top officials at the Justice Department tried to stop all of that from happening, down to the very last second.
Trump often used language during his presidency that clearly expressed his view that he was the United States government. These comments were often dismissed by mainstream media and political pundits as Trumpian ego when Donald Trump was expressing his belief that the Executive Branch of the United States government existed to serve his purposes.
After Trump lost the presidential election, he tried to use the Justice Department to overthrow the government.
Rachel Maddow concisely broke down the plot, but the motivating force behind the coup was Trump’s disrespect for the entire system of governance and his willingness to destroy it to keep power.

THOUSANDS Turn Out Early to See President Trump in Mendon, IL the Day After Roe v. Wade Is Overturned — PHOTOS
Day after Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, President Donald Trump will hold a rally with Representative Mary Miller (R-IL).
The 45th president will hold a “Save America Rally” at the Adams County Fairgrounds in Mendon, Illinois, Northeast of Quincy, on Saturday, June 25, 2022, at 7:00 PM CDT.
President Trump is expected to deliver statements regarding the SCOTUS’ recent decision to ban abortion.
Trump will endorse incumbent, first-term U.S. Rep. Mary Miller of Oakland. Miller voted against certifying the election results on January 6, 2021, according to a report.

“I’m honored President Trump is coming to the Quincy area to hold a rally after endorsing me over RINO Rodney Davis, who stabbed President Trump in the back by voting for the sham January 6th Commission,” Miller said.
Miller went on Twitter Saturday morning to offer her gratitude for President Trump.
“Today, we woke up in a post-Roe America. The end of Roe v. Wade would not have been possible without President Trump. I will be thanking him tonight in-person at our rally in Adams County!” Miller tweeted.

How the Abortion Decision Helps Donald Trump
John Ellis: “First: it changes the subject, something the Trump camp has been quite desperate to do since the Committee hearings began.”
“Second, it reminds the Republican Party’s most important constituency — white evangelical Christians — just who made yesterday’s ruling possible. That would be, first and foremost, Donald Trump.”
“Third, it requires all the other GOP candidates for the 2024 presidential nomination to acknowledge (and feign admiration for) Trump’s role in Roe’s reversal. This reinforces the perception that the Republican ‘field’ of candidates is actually two fields: Trump and everybody else.”
“Fourth, and this is always a consideration in Trump world, it enables an aggressive direct mail fund-raising campaign, asking small donors to express their appreciation for Trump’s role in the reversal of Roe by sending money to the coffers of what might be called the Trump Bank for Future Endeavors. Such an appeal will raise a lot of money.”

Asking teachers to shoot former students is mental cruelty
There is a fundamental problem with this belief system: Those students who come into schools and conduct a shooting? These kids with guns who murder aren’t just criminals, they are also former students of the educators. When teachers say that they don’t want to be armed, there are very valid reasons.
I have had experience with great police officers and bad ones. I’ve had a police officer be part of saving my life from a violent crime, and I’ve seen an officer protect someone from abuse. What even someone with the right training will tell you is that these events have an emotional impact, and they had no personal relationship with the person beforehand.
Imagine, if you will, having a gun in your drawer as an educator and being expected to shoot and kill someone you taught as a young student. You might have known them as a second-grader or a fifth-grader. Maybe you knew them as a sixth-grader. You remember them helping your class, the fun of teaching them how to tie their shoes or read.
Suddenly, that same student is armed with a weapon of mass destruction and you are expected to forget all of that and take down the student. Students can be frustrating, but they can also be a source of great personal pride. Many of us have fond memories of our teachers. Many teachers have fond memories of students. Certainly it is the love of the profession that keeps teachers doing it, not the money.
Republicans are far less concerned about solving problems and far more concerned about promoting gun sales.
That isn’t a solution, it’s mental cruelty. Plain and simple.
