Mark it down on your calendar — or perhaps log it into your smart phone: June 9 is when the House select committee investigating the 1/6 insurrection takes its hearings onto the public floor.
Committee Chairman Bennie Thompson vows a complete hearing before the whole world when he calls witnesses to testify on what they knew on that hideous day. He will make them tell the truth about when they knew it and whether the POTUS at the time, Donald Trump, is culpable in the effort to overturn our cherished democratic process with the aim of keeping Trump in power.
I don’t know about you, but I intend to watch as much of it as I can. I understand there will be roughly five days of public testimony.
I am going to look forward to hearing the Trumpkins defend the activities of their hero. Defend his inaction. His refusal to stop the attack on our law enforcement personnel guarding the Capitol Building.
Moreover, I am going to hope my stomach is strong enough to digest all the lies we are about to hear.
Ladies and gentlemen, pass the popcorn, because we are about to watch a political drama play out.
