Did anyone else see the interview (in the loosest possible terms) with Erin Elmore, a lawyer who is or has been on Trump's team, on Sky News today?

She scares me even more than Trump and I'll have a wager that she'll be a Republican presidential candidate at some point.

If he had decided to tell his staff to stay home then the cops/FBI etc should have figured it out too.
CNN were claiming cops let people through.
I am very suspicious that there was a "decision made" somewhere............

It's going to be very dangerous again when these guys go on trial.

So many people are not going to do business with Trump going forward.

In my humble opinion I suspect his business empire is hanging by a thread with massive debt obligations that I think he will find extremely difficult to refinance.

A cynic would be forgiven for thinking that the way he has (mis)managed the pandemic has been to keep the hospitality sector afloat.

It's a witch hunt now.
Trump has already implanted the anarchy
switch inside his supporters...Biden just
has to press it.

Unfortunately it appears unlikely he will be 'found guilty' due to the political balance in the Senate.

What the man must do, MUST Do, is go on tv and tell the nation that he does not want any violence around and in the run up to inauguratio. It is the only credible path he has available to regain any respect whatsoever in the eyes of the majority of people.

Will he do it? Not a chance, he just doesn't care. He is soo removed from reality I don't think he cares that five lives were lost at The Capitol
