It doesn’t get much plainer

Representative Stacey Plaskett (D, Virgin Islands), this afternoon:

“The vice president, the Speaker of the House, the first and second in line to the presidency, were performing their constitutional duties, presiding over the election certification. And they were put in danger, because President Trump put his own desires, his own need for power, over his duty to the Constitution and our democratic process. President Trump put a target on their backs, and his mob broke into the Capitol to hunt them down.”
The House managers are making their case with impressive clarity and force. “Trump’s mob,” “his mob”: that’s effective, and true to the facts. Keep saying it, please. It may not change many senators’ minds, but it will certainly register with at least some voters.
