The Monday Thought
On January 6th, 2021, Delegate Dan Cox infamously Tweeted this.
As the January 6th Committee still does its business, it’s fair to ask: does Dan Cox still think Pence is a traitor?
Does it matter to Cox that Donald Trump’s own staff thought that the entire plan to decertify the election was “nuts”?
Trump’s closest advisers viewed his last-ditch efforts to halt congressional certification of his loss as “nuts,” “crazy” and even likely to incite riots if Pence followed through, witnesses revealed in stark testimony Thursday…
…Trump aides and allies warned bluntly in private about his efforts, even as some publicly continued to stand by the president’s false election claims. Nine people died in the insurrection and its aftermath.
“Are you out of your effing mind?” Eric Herschmann, a lawyer advising Trump, told Eastman in recorded testimony shown at the hearing.
“You’re going to turn around and tell 78-plus million people in this country that your theory is, this is how you’re going to invalidate their votes?” Herschmann said. He warned: “You’re going to cause riots in the streets.”
A text message from Fox News’ Sean Hannity to Trump’s chief of staff Mark Meadows about the plan in the run-up to Jan. 6 read: “I’m very worried about the next 48 hours.”
Trump campaign adviser Jason Miller said those around Trump called the plan “crazy.”
The committee has said the plan was illegal, and a federal judge has said “more likely than not” Trump committed crimes in his attempt to stop the certification.
Does it matter to Cox that some of the rioters whom he marched with that day were looking to kill Mike Pence?
Does it matter to Cox, who purports himself to be a “Constitutional Attorney”, that conservative judge and scholar Judge Michael Luttig, says that had Pence followed Trump’s advice that that country would have been plunged into a Constitutional crisis?
And does it matter to Cox that with all of the evidence that we have seen that Judge Luttig believes that Donald Trump, who has endorsed Cox, is a “clear and present danger to the Republic?”
Maryland voters deserve to know if Dan Cox continues to believe Mike Pence is a traitor despite all of the overwhelming evidence to the contrary.
