Trump Made Video After He Was Warned of Legal Risk
January 8, 2021 at 6:28 am EST By Taegan Goddard


New York Times: “Mr. Trump initially resisted taping the video, agreeing to do it only after aides pressed him and he appeared to suddenly realize he could face legal risk for prodding the mob, coming shortly after the chief federal prosecutor for Washington left open the possibility of investigating the president for illegally inciting the attack by telling supporters to march on the Capitol and show strength.”

“Pat Cipollone, the White House counsel, had warned Mr. Trump of just that danger on Wednesday as aides frantically tried to get the president to intervene and publicly call off rioters, which he did only belatedly, reluctantly and halfheartedly.”

Said a Trump adviser to CNN: “I think that video was done only because almost all his senior staff was about to resign, and impeachment is imminent.”

1. No Twitter either

They had to find something to occupy him so they started working on this video and the one he did for the RNC Winter meeting. It was sort of like getting out the T-shirt smocks and having finger painting day.
