“As a mob of pro-Trump supporters breached the Capitol, Trump’s children took to social media to talk to the mob. His Jewish daughter Ivanka Trump is getting particularly hammered for one of her tweets, in which she referred to the violent rioters as “patriots.”( Jerusalum Post, Jan. 2021).
Ivanka looks worried. She should be. She is the sneaky Trump child, quiet but complicit. The Jan. 6th Committee has eyewitness evidence that she realized the violence at the Capitol was dangerous and only her father could and should stop it. While Trump viewed the ego-feeding insurrection and did nothing to stop it, Ivanka and other White House staff and members of Congress pleaded with him to ask the mob to stop the violence and go home. She is an eyewitness to what her father’s attitude and mindset were during the attack.
an 8-1 vote, the Supreme Court voted not to block the request by the Jan. 6th Committee for the release of Trump’s White House records about the Jan. 6 insurrection. Judge Kavanaugh wrote a two-page explanation of the decision, which supported the lower court’s decision. However, a former president has a right to assert privilege for communications during his presidency. However, the current president’s opinion carries the greater weight. (Scotusblog.com). When announcing his claim over Trump’s records, Biden emphasized presidential privilege “should not be used to shield, from Congress or the public, information that reflects a clear and apparent effort to subvert the Constitution itself.” Ironically, Trump’s argument for asserting privilege is based on his great concern to protect the constitutional integrity of the office of the presidency. While president, he violated the Constitution by abusing the power of the office and obstructing justice to hide his criminal and unethical practices.
Trump’s draft executive order called for voting machines to be seized by the Secretary of Defense, claiming there was “probable cause to find evidence of fraud and numerous malicious actions.” ( Newsweek, Jan. 21, 2022).
The existence of an executive order to seize the voting machines after the 2020 election was discovered after the Supreme Court voted not to block the release of Trump’s White House Archive records. Just when it appears every corrupt style for stealing an election has been discovered, another one is found. Trump couldn’t Mike Pence to steal it, the rioters to stop its certification, or get Secretary of State Rathensburger to falsify it, so he wrote an executive order to seize the voting machines and have his people decide they were faulty. The degree to which Trump desperately tried to steal the election is beyond what any democrats mind would contemplate.
