I know this may be a shocking surprise to many of you after hearing that Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) announced his retirement.
Big surprise… he has a book coming out.
There is a very interesting passage in that book that we want to talk about here.
During the days leading up to the January rally, there was a lot of rhetoric on social media.
According to Romney's new book, "Romney: A Reckoning," he addressed some of these issues.
Romney texted to Senator Mitch McConnell (R-KY), "There are calls to burn down your home, Mitch. To smuggle guns into DC, and to storm the Capitol.
"I hope that sufficient security plans are in place, but I am concerned that the instigator — the President (Donald Trump)— is the one who commands the reinforcements the DC and Capitol police might require," reported the Washington Examiner.
According to the report, McConnell never responded to his warning.
The warning ended up being for naught, as nothing ever happened to McConnell's home, but there was significant damage done at the Capitol.
In all, there were $2.7 million in damages.
That riot is at the heart of some of the indictments against Donald Trump. The January 6 case is arguably the most dangerous case for Trump headed into the election.
If he slips up on the stand, Democrats will jump all over him regarding the 14th Amendment.
Trump is up against it in terms of the judges and jury pools that will be deciding his fate, this is particularly true in the January 6 case if Judge Chutkan remains on the bench.
She has openly stated in other cases that, while not naming Donald Trump, she believes he is responsible for the riot that took place on January 6.
Her mind is made up, so Trump will not catch any breaks. The only solace for Trump on this front is that he can use this on appeal if he is found guilty.
