In the end, the darkest truth of Donald Trump’s crime came to light.
As his marauders sacked the Capitol on Jan. 6 in their bloody attempt to overturn the election, House Republican leader Kevin McCarthy called the then-president and pleaded for Trump to call off the attack.
Trump refused, essentially telling McCarthy he got what he deserved. Trump was, in effect, content to let members of Congress die.
I’m not sure that these Senators realize how close this was to a bloodbath. Some of those who voted to acquit would have died.
