Awhile back, the January 6th Committee publicly asserted that Rep. Barry Loudermilk gave a January 5th Capitol tour. Not only did it release photographic proof today, it also released video proof that one of Loudermilk’s tour guests was part of the insurrection the next day.
The pattern we keep seeing from this committee is that whenever it makes an assertion or allegation, it’s because it has the evidence in hand to more than back it up. This is particularly bad news for Donald Trump, given that the committee has publicly stated that it has proof Trump committed several crimes – including proof that Trump didn’t just incite the Capitol attack, he was a criminal co-conspirator in the attack.
This means that as these hearings go on, the January 6th Committee will lay out more and more evidence that cumulatively buries Donald Trump in terms of proving his guilt. Attorney General Merrick Garland has already stated that he, and the DOJ officials in charge of the January 6th probe, are watching these hearings. By the time these hearings conclude next week, Trump should be panicked enough that he’s hiding under his desk.
