Friday on MSNBC’s Deadline, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) said that the House Select Committee investigating January 6, 2021 will show that former President Trump is the instigator, author and architect of a coup on that date.
Asked about Trump’s role, the congenital liar Schiff continued, “In my point of view, he is in the author and the architect of this plan to overturn the election in this coup attempt masquerading as a legal strategy. After all, he is the chief promulgator of the big lie, and that big lie is used around the country to try to get states to send bogus electors, fake certificates of electors. He is involved in this. He is calling state legislatures. He is calling local election officials. He’s strategizing with Eastman and others. He’s the instigator and the author of and the architect of this effort to overturn our elections culminating in this violence on January 6. So you can’t ignore the principal player here.”
Schiff added, “There are a lot of others players, too. Our goal is to expose the role of all who are involved and the fragility of our democracy. The main reason it remains so fragile is because of the active participation of the head of today’s Republican Party, Donald Trump.”
This partisan political theater, promoted by the state media organ MSNBC, is all moot, since there literally was no attempted “coup” to overturn the election. Indeed, the real “big lie” is not the accusation that the 2020 presidential election was illegitimate, but that Trump and his supporters have tried to overturn the election results by force.
