Braynard, who presents himself as one of the many “voter fraud experts,” investigating the presidential election, was front and center Saturday afternoon in the Justice for J6 huddle.

Many times during his reign, Trump could have saved his presidency by taking moderate positions and co-opting the Democrats.

Trump never truly understood why Paul Manafort chose Mike Pence as his Vice President.
