(Tea Party PAC) – Sen. Bill Cassidy stated on Sunday that he believes former President Donald Trump “wished lawmakers to be intimidated” by the crazed antics of the mob that carried out a violent siege at the Capitol building back on January 6th.
Folks, it’s pretty clear right off the bat, without taking a deep dive into any of Cassidy’s actual comments, that he is groveling on his knees in front of the Republican Party establishment, lapping at their boots in hopes that they will welcome his membership into the exclusive club. The price of admission being the soul of our nation.
According to WND, Cassidy sat down for an interview with ABC host George Stephanopoulos on ABC’s “This Week,” program where he once again described the “insurrection” as “an attempt to prevent the peaceful transition of power.” Cassidy then went on to note that former President Trump promoted the idea that the election was stolen for two whole months after the election was over.
Gee, I wonder if it ever crossed the warped mind of this establishment hack that maybe, just maybe, the reason that Trump pushed the idea that the election was stolen is because there is actual evidence that exists that indicates some sort of widespread fraud occurred that actually altered the outcome of a national election?
Then again, if he acknowledged that, his buddies in the establishment wouldn’t be too happy with him, would they? Might revoke his membership. Wouldn’t want that, now would we?
“People still tell me they think Dominion rigged those machines with Hugo Chavez from Venezuela. That is not true and all the news organizations that promoted have retracted,” Cassidy said during the interview.
“He then scheduled the rally for January the sixth, just when the transfer of power was to take place, and he brought together a crowd, but a portion of that was transformed into a mob. And when they went into the Capitol, it was clear he wished lawmakers be intimidated,” he added.

Fortunately, there are more individuals in the Senate who are still willing to vote on principle instead of trying to impress the establishment. The Senate voted Saturday, 57-43, to acquit Donald Trump of the article of impeachment he was charged with.
Cassidy voted to convict, of course.
“Even after he knew that there was violence taking place, he continued to basically sanction the mob being there,” Cassidy went on to say. “And not until later did he actually ask them to leave.”
“All of that points to a motive and a method, and that is wrong. He should be held accountable,” Cassidy said.
