Trump Nailed By Jeffrey Rosen For Directly Pressuring DOJ To Overturn The Election

Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) described Jeffrey Rosen’s testimony as Trump directly pressuring the DOJ to overturn the election.

Sen. Durbin: It Was Very Real And Very Specific

Video of Sen. Durbin on CNN’s State Of The Union:

Durbin was asked what shocked him the most about Rosen’s testimony. He answered, “Just how directly personally involved the president was, the pressure he was putting on Jeffrey Rosen. It was real. Very real. And it was very specific. This president is not subtle when he wants something, the former president is not subtle when he wants something. It’s a good thing for America we had a person like Rosen in that position, who withstood the pressure. “

When Trump Failed To Get The DOJ To Overturn The Election, He Moved Toward The 1/6 Plot.

Everything that happened between Election Day and 1/6 is related. If Trump’s pressure campaign on the DOJ had worked, the 1/6 attack would not have happened.

It is because Trump could not successfully abuse his presidential power to overturn the election that he turned his attention toward plotting the attack on the Capitol.

Trump had spent decades not getting directly involved in various potentially criminal enterprises and schemes. He always left himself room for deniability but losing the election heightened his desperation.

Trump slipped up, and this time witnesses are coming forward to lay the plot to overturn the election at his feet.
