The 1/6 commission (or select committee) should investigate and make recommendations, but it should also be a forum for senior officials to explain why they held Trump responsible for the insurrection.…
Betsy DeVos: “we are left to clean up the mess caused by violent protesters overrunning the U.S. Capitol in an attempt to undermine the people’s business. . . . There is no mistaking the impact your rhetoric had on the situation, and it is the inflection point for me.”
Bill Barr: “Orchestrating a mob to pressure Congress is inexcusable... The President’s conduct yesterday was a betrayal of his office and supporters.”
Mick Mulvaney: “I called Mike Pompeo last night to let him know I was resigning from that. I can’t do it. I can’t stay... now it will always be, ‘Oh yeah, you work for the guy who tried to overtake the government.'"
Elaine Chao: “our country experienced a traumatic and entirely avoidable event as supporters of the president stormed the Capitol building following a rally he addressed . . . it has deeply troubled me in a way that I simply cannot set aside.”
Alyssa Farah (former WH communications director): “When the moment called for leadership, he did not do the right thing and lives were lost because of it... I think that [resignation is] something [Trump] should seriously consider."
Make them all testify.

Great article by the Managing Editor of The Federalist, posted one day after the insurrection.…
"The Republican Party of the future cannot — not tacitly, not quietly, not in the slightest — encourage grievance or stoke anger... [nor can it] continue to endorse the view that any election lost to Democrats constitutes the literal end of the country."
"What we saw on Jan. 6, 2021, is not a surprising result when people are falsely told their votes are meaningless because the elections are 'rigged' and democracy in America is a sham."

And yet we're asked to believe that they'll risk it all for some "walking around money."
