Within 24 hours of the Capitol riots, we saw reports from respected investigative journalists like CBS News’ Catherine Herridge that pointed to the breaching of the Capitol being a preplanned attack.
For example, Herridge reported on January 7th that the first pipe bomb was said to have been found at the RNC around 12:45 as Trump was still giving his speech:
#CapitolBuilding From Acting US Attorney Michael Sherwin – two pipe Bombs, one near RNC + second, DNC “not a hoax” + “were viable,” ongoing forensics to identify bombmaker + whether timers rigged for max casualties IMAGES first reported @CBSNews pic.twitter.com/d4Sdg4SWy2

Two days later, a more concrete timeline was forming:
#CapitolHill NEW: Law enforcement report from 1/7 obtained @CBSNews lays out – what appears to be – a significant timeline. First pipe bomb at RNC called in at approximately 1245 as POTUS spoke at rally with a second device at DNC called in approximately 1315. NOTE: Timing + pic.twitter.com/G6qGWLbTB7

As I speculated last week, from that information alone, we could glean that the storming of the Capitol was likely preplanned. In other words, it doesn’t seem likely that random rallygoers were just standing around listening to Trump’s speech and then got “incited” enough to leave and then make and plant pipe bombs to distract law enforcement.
Day by day as we learned more information about what happened, and what the FBI reportedly knew about the possibility of violence in the days leading up to the riots, the incitement charge leveled at President Trump by impeachment-minded Democrats slowly unraveled.
The preplanned element that was becoming more obvious by the minute was the elephant in the room that the Democrats and Republicans in the House who eventually voted to impeach Trump ignored.
But yesterday, on the day before Trump would hand over the keys to the Oval Office to Joe Biden, the Washington Post published a detailed report, acknowledging that what happened on January 6th “was not an entirely impulsive outburst of violence.” The piece ran with the headline “Self-styled militia members planned on storming the U.S. Capitol days in advance of Jan. 6 attack, court documents say”:
The arrests this weekend of several people with alleged ties to far-right extremist groups, including the Oath Keepers, the Proud Boys and the Three Percenters, suggest that the riot was not an entirely impulsive outburst of violence but an event instigated or exploited by organized groups. Hours of video posted on social media and pored over by investigators have focused on individuals in military-style gear moving together.
“This is the first step toward identifying and understanding that there was some type of concerted conspiracy here,” said one senior official with the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia, which is leading the investigation.
In other words, it was preplanned.
Even CNN reported last week on the likelihood that the attack on the Capitol was preplanned.
This would appear to change the ballgame at the Senate’s impeachment trial. Remember this from the impeachment article:
All the Democrat propaganda outlets didn’t wait a second to collect any evidence before they began promoting their complete blame of Trump for the riot. After all, it was a bad event, so naturally, it was Trump’s fault; they’ll fill in the blanks later.
Likewise, it isn’t Pelosi’s style to sit around waiting for Trump to commit a crime or evidence to launch an impeachment. Politics must be served.
Anyone aware of Trump’s speech that day never had any misconception that he incited a damned thing. The riot was a composition of leftists, instigating and raising the temperature, and some frustrated Trump supporters tired of being on the receiving end of every hit. The capital riot was a culmination of 7 months of left wing riots, looting, burning, attacks on cops, murders and injuries all allowed to go without holding anyone accountable. Democrats may enjoy watching this kind of thing unfold, but it infuriates patriotic citizens. The dam burst January 6th. That’s all.
Anyway, irrefutable evidence that accusing Trump of inciting violence, especially with the Democrat’s record of inciting violence themselves, is asinine. But, no one ever gave Democrats excessive credit for being humane.
