Trump’s campaign for another term has been long expected, but in the aftermath of last week’s historically bad midterm results, some Republicans are scrambling to find an alternative to their standard bearer.
Former White House Chief of Staff John F. Kelly told the New York Times that the former president wanted investigations into those he believed to be his enemies, including former FBI director James Comey and former FBI official Andrew McCabe.
Evidence presented during Tuesday's House committee hearing on the Jan. 6 Capitol attack contradicts Team Trump’s argument that the insurrection was spontaneous and that Trump cannot be blamed for his supporters’ actions.
“You know, I don’t f-ing care that they have weapons. They’re not here to hurt me. Take the f-ing mags away. Let my people in. They can march to the Capitol from here. Let the people in. Take the f-ing mags away,” Trump said on Jan. 6, according to aide Cassidy Hutchinson’s testimony.
