No one has asked me my opinion on whether the 1/6 insurrection hearings conducted by the House select committee has changed my mind about what happened on that horrible day.
I am going to offer an opinion anyway.
Hell yes, I have changed my mind on the insurrection. After listening to several days’ worth of testimony, I am even more convinced than before that Donald J. Trump needs to be charged with any variety of federal crimes.
I thought he was guilty long ago. I still believe in Trump’s guilt. What has changed, though, has been the passion with which I believe this stuff about the former POTUS.
Does that count as a “changed mind?” If not, then it should. Therefore, I will conclude that my mind has changed about who is responsible for the insurrection.
I believed in Trump’s guilt when the hearings started. I believe in them even more as they grind on toward a conclusion.
What never will change in my mind is a demand for accountability and a prison sentence if the ex-president ever gets convicted.
