Trump's poisonous snowball of nonsense will roll again today in the Senate chamber
— Washington Post Opinions (@PostOpinions) February 11, 2021
Schoen appeared to suggest law enforcement might refrain from further investigations into the rioters who stormed the Capitol, because they are showing that the assault was preplanned, supposedly exonerating Trump.
The “they” who might “back off” appears to be a reference to law enforcement. If so, the idea that they might stop investigating rioters to avoid exonerating Trump is rank crackpottery.
But more important, whoever the “they” is here, the theory underlying this story is completely divorced from reality — in a way that actually further incriminates Trump.
Denial has become a very long river in Egypt for the GOP. The GQP is now manufacturing more alternative facts(sic).
