Nancy Pelosi was brought into question regarding claims that Donald Trump knew that right-wing radicals were planning to siege the Capitol building, according to The BizPac Review.
Lindsey Graham pointed out that if Trump was somehow a part of the preplanned violence, how and when did Nancy Pelosi know, alluding that she shares guilt.
“The FBI and the Capitol Hill police actually now understand this was pre-planned; they were planting bombs the night before. So the whole story line that Donald Trump calls this by his speech has fallen apart due to good law enforcement activity,” Graham said.
“And here’s what I want to know: What did Nancy Pelosi know, and when did she know it? If this was widely known by the FBI and Capitol Hill Police that people were planning to come to Washington before the 6th to create violence, I want to know did she know about that?”
“I don’t remember any of these House managers saying a damn thing when they were trying to break into my house and going after Susan Collins and spitting on all of u.”
“If this is a problem for a politician to give the speech that President Trump did, well then Kamala Harris has a real problem because she actively engaged in bailing out rioters. And here’s what I would suggest: If you’re a politician trying to raise bail for people accused of rioting, you’re inciting more riots.”

“The managers have got this cockamamie idea, absurd theory that Donald Trump was monitoring the Proud Boys website and other far-right websites, and that he and Dan Scavino [his then-chief of staff] knew this was going to happen and they encouraged it,” Graham said.
“That is looney-tunes, and you know why they’re saying that? Because if the president didn’t know and it was actually preplanned, he’s not guilty,” Graham noted.
Democratic impeachment manager’s whole effort is based on the riot being pre-planned and not spontaneous.
“So for the first time today, they’re trying to create a [new] storyline that Donald Trump was in on it before it happened, that he was monitoring the Proud Boys and other crazy websites,” Graham explained. “And he knew they were going to come to Washington and with violence on their mind, and he encouraged it. That is beyond bizarre. This is not evidence, this is a liberal democratic novel being presented as evidence.”

The NY Times reported, “In a 55-to-45 vote that strongly suggested that the Senate would not be able to convict the former president, lawmakers narrowly killed a Republican effort to dismiss the impeachment charge as unconstitutional.”
“A majority of Republicans rallied on Tuesday against trying former President Donald J. Trump for ‘incitement of insurrection,’ with only five members of his party joining Democrats in voting to go forward with the impeachment trial for his role stirring up a mob that attacked the Capitol.”
“The whole storyline originally was Trump created this from a speech. Now we know the people had this on their mind before he ever spoke, so they’re playing this bizarre game of trying to get Trump in on it before Jan. 6th. This is why you don’t want to have snap impeachments. Evidence really does matter,” Graham added.
“The impeachment managers wove a narrative alleging that Trump’s legal and rhetorical challenges to the outcome of the election were part of a sinister, premeditated campaign to program a portion of his supporters to commit violence on Jan. 6,” The Epoch Times reported.
“Reps. Joe Neguse (D-Colo.), Joaquin Castro (D-Texas), and Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.) presented several selectively edited video clip compilations from Trump’s speeches beginning in spring last year and culminating in the speech the president delivered in Washington on the day of the Capitol breach.”
“If you compare the words … of Stacey Abrams and Hillary Clinton, and you intersperse the comments of the managers with the insurrectionist language of the left, guess what — it fits perfectly.”
