On January 6, a mob of Trump supporters attempted to overthrow the government, disrupt election certification and keep Donald Trump in office.
They honestly believed that Vice President Pence had the authority to completely overturn the results of the election, as told to them by President Trump. Turns out that was never, ever the case, as laid out in the United States Constitution.
But I’m guessing that if you’re willing to paint your face, wear horns and violently overthrow the government, reading probably isn’t too high on your priority list. Again, that’s just a guess, though.
Now we’re learning, according to the Feds, that those Trump supporter who stormed the U.S. Capitol were planning to “kidnap and assassinate” lawmakers.
