'Hitman' Trump: DC officer suggests Trump started MAGA riot as probe kicks offThe first hearing for the House select committee investigating the January 6th Capitol Hill riot featured emotional testimony from four Capitol Police officers attacked by alleged “Trump-inspired” rioters. MSNBC’s Chief Legal Correspondent Ari Melber discusses the need for accountability and the committee’s full subpoena power. AriMelber Why aren’t cops around America NOT supporting the Capital police officers that were attacked 🤔 AriMelber What a joke this has become! AriMelber 'Trump Inspired' TERRORISTS you mean. We need to have the FBI testify next. 'Inspired' is NOT a word I feel we should be associating with an act of war. Re: incitement - was it ordered? I believe at the LEAST, they went there with PERMISSION from Trump, to get Pence & Pelosi.

He’ll eat in the golf cart on his way to the banquet to honor McDonald’s.
Role of Trump era corruption pondered in delay of arrest of Trump friend BarrackRachel Maddow considers the possibility that a delay in the indictment of Donald Trump friend and inauguration committee chair Tom Barrack, as reported by CNN, could be part of an apparent pattern of corrupt deference to Trump associates by the Department of Justice in the Trump era, or perhaps a stall to wait out Trump's pardon power. maddow 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻 maddow maddow I love how you keep grasping for ratings. Trump is the only way you are relevant.

Analysis: Trump and DeSantis choose politics over science as mask wars roar back to lifeA new political war over masks is already deepening the national divides that slowed vaccinations and thwarted what once seemed an imminent victory over the coronavirus pandemic. StCollinson StCollinson The Dems are bringing in 2.2 million illegals with 10% of those tested having active covid cases.

I’m not going to object to that befitting gesture. I think we should have a statue of him in that park they cleared out for him.
