Should Trump be executed for high treason…as a Russian agent?

Yahoo: Retired Lt. Gen. Russel Honoré, who was tasked by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi with conducting a review of the US Capitol’s security after January 6, on Tuesday said President Donald Trump’s White House was complicit in orchestrating the insurrection.

“It’s my personal opinion that the executive branch was complicit in the planning and the delayed response that occurred in bringing in more federal assistance to the Capitol that day,” Honoré said during an MSNBC appearance, underscoring that he had not reached this conclusion from the security review he spearheaded.

“That’s my own perception, based on what I’ve seen and what I’ve heard and by the fact the former president is continuing to tell people, ‘This was not a riot, it meant no harm, it was like a picnic,'” Honoré said, adding, “The last I heard from him, he told them to go to the Capitol and raise hell.”

During an incendiary speech near the White House shortly before the violence at the Capitol, Trump told lies about the 2020 election and called on his supporters to “fight like hell.”

Trump was impeached for provoking the insurrection, but he was acquitted in the Senate with the help of his Republican allies – including GOP lawmakers who had said he bore responsibility for the deadly riot.

There are open questions about why law enforcement was unprepared for that day and what caused the delayed federal response. A Capitol Police intelligence assessment from three days before the insurrection raised alarm about the potential for violence from Trump supporters on January 6, saying that “Congress itself is the target,” according to a 104-page report from the Capitol Police inspector general.  Read more..

  1. General Honore’, who is likely the highest thought of US military person after his dealing with NO, will suddenly be found to be a shill for the ‘left’. As if there is such a thing in this country, as they are now all varying degrees of authoritarians. The truth will die a thousand biased deaths to whatever is claimed. Was Tramp in on it? Well, yeah. Was the rest of the gov involved as well? Of course. Who in their right mind thinks one ‘wing’ of the vulture would defer to the other ‘wing’? Witness all the prosecutions over the years of those that misused their positions. Uhhh, never mind.

    • Actually Honore’ has been low key. This is the first thing published on him that I have seen in a good while. Not a peep from him on any of the Biden big bills, nothing about the Congressional vote battles, or the personalities. There are people who are more effective behind the scenes. VT does both because we have the tools and the network. Honore’ certainly has his, but is not about to look for attention. He is not looking for any rewards, nor our we. We are focused on not having bad things happen to us, which we think is a prudent use of our time.

    • They were not “all in on it”. This is the (very) short list of things during Republican admins: Watergate, Iran Contra, 2000 election fraud (the real one), 9/11, Anthrax attack, Afghanistan, Opium epidemic, Iraq war, Trump, Covid, Insurrection.
      See the pattern ?

    • Yeah, I think they are ALL, always “in on it” all of the time. Of course they are!
      Real “political conflict” would be much easier to see. As it is, we just keep row row rowing out boats dreamingly and gently down the merry stream.

  2. The big lie, that Trump actually won the election, justifies anything in the Cult of Trump. This is an article of faith that must be adhered to or you will be banished to the outer darkness, like all Democrats are. Like New Mexican chairman of the ReTrumplican party, Steve Pearce, said back in December, “Trump is our president FOREVER, and no one can take that away from us.”

  3. The willingness to engage in outright falsehoods, in pursuit of power, and the willingness to place elected officials in the cross hairs of a weaponized mob, at the time of the transfer of power, negating the democratic process in favor of a violent insurrection, is a treasonous act.
    We all know who did it. It is arguable to say, the inactivity of the current DOJ, is nearly as egregious as the act itself. They are milking the victim card, on both sides, but the glaring TIMIDITY, requires welding goggles in the DOJ. We need unprecedented. Quieting a spoiled mob of man-child is not rocket science. How pathetic.

    • Honore is as good as they come btw. A far cry better than the likes of Flynn, Kelly or Mattis. All 3 of whom were repeatedly fooled by con men, reliable stooges for the MIC, and must be considered incapable of security leadership. For cryin out loud.
      A s proud as I would be to serve under Honore, I would be equally embarrassed to serve under those 3 sell outs. And congress gave them waivers.

    • Dave. Being compared favorably to Mike “The Plumber” Kelly is not really a high endorsement. There are empty suits and then there are empty uniforms. Kelly was a greedy ghost.
