It was one of the most horrific scenes I’ve ever witnessed!
January 6, 2021, began as a bright sunny day. I woke up so optimistic. Congress was about to certify the votes tallied by the electoral college which would finally declare and confirm Joe Biden as the 46th President and Kamala Harris as his Vice President. I knew and expected there to be whining. True to my belief, Senator Ted Cruz was about on the Senate floor making his impassioned speech about the need for an impartial panel to investigate the alleged voter fraud. At that point, I left my apartment to deposit a letter into the mailbox in the lobby of my building. I was gone from my television set for no more than five or six minutes. When I got back into my apartment and glanced at the television I saw a mob crashing through the fencing that surrounded the Capitol Building. I could not believe what I was seeing. I was now fixated on what I was watching on my television. It was a scene out of the movie Olympus Has Fallen. Suddenly the mob scene grew into the thousands and it began to storm the capitol. Windows were being smashed in, doors were being torn off the hinges, and thugs began to scale the walls up into the second floor. Then I witnessed the mob crash into the rotunda and desecrate the National Statuary Hall. It was unbelievable. My phone was constantly ringing and the text messages did not stop. Everyone I knew was in as much disbelief as I was. It was sort of a Nine One-One moment. It was very difficult to see.
When I watched Trump, Trump Jr., and Rudy Giuliani inciting the followers earlier in the morning I could not fathom that they would actually do the things they were incited to. In Trump’s speech, he continued to insist that the election was stolen and that he would march hand in hand with them to the Capitol to let them know that they would not let them steal this election. Donald Trump Jr. then told the crowd that the Republican elected leaders had to pick a side and that they better choose the right side, Finally, it was Rudy Giuliani’s words that did it, he said it was time for a “trial by combat”.
Ok so Trump will probably get a pardon, that’s the way these thugs work. Now that there is talk of the invoking of the Twenty-fifth Amendment to the United States Constitution, Trump will probably resign rather than allowing them to kick him out of office. That will allow for Pence to become President, if only for 14 days, thus making it possible for him to pardon Trump. The only hope, we regular citizens have, is that a Presidential pardon only frees him from Federal Crimes it does not exempt him from any State or local crimes committed. It nothing else, I pray that Washington, DC Mayor, Muriel Bowser charges Trump with inciting a riot. The world saw and heard Donald J. Trump, his son Donny Jr. and Rudolph Giuliani yesterday morning let his followers to March down to the Capitol. There is no doubt that the horrible events that the world witnessed yesterday in Washington, DC, the events of domestic terrorism, were incited by these three. Charges of Treason, or at the very least criminal charges of inciting a riot must be filed against them. I mean, George Floyd was arrested and killed for allegedly trying to pass a counterfeit twenty-dollar bill. These thugs mastered minded and incited their minions to storm the capital building in which one woman was shot and killed and three others died due to medical conditions. We, U.S. Citizens should not settle for less.
