Trumpers look to expose Dems’ own incitement

Carrie Sheffield, “Many on the Trump team are excited that he’s actually going to be able to embarrass … the congressional leaders who voted for this,” said Jessie Jane Duff, co-chair of Veterans for Trump. “Many on the Trump team are excited that he’s actually going to be able to embarrass … the congressional leaders who voted for this,” said Jessie Jane Duff, co-chair of Veterans for Trump.

Even as Democrats present their case for convicting President Trump of allegedly inciting a violent insurrection on Capitol Hill, Republicans say they can use the occasion to go on offense and embarrass Democrats for their own rhetoric.

The public record is rife with statements from Democratic lawmakers that challenge the legitimacy of Republican electoral victories and could, if interpreted literally, be construed to encourage physical confrontation of conservatives.

“So the hypocrisy is actually to President Trump’s advantage,” Jessie Jane Duff, co-chair of Veterans for Trump, told “Just the News AM” program on Tuesday. “Many on the Trump team are excited that he’s actually going to be able to embarrass the Senate, he’s going to be able to embarrass the congressional leaders who voted for this, because their words and actions have directly suggested … what they’re trying to deflect and say that he has done. We know that the evidence shows that he did not create this, did not design this, that the Capitol riots were essentially already pre-planned.”

Among possible examples to be shared by Republicans during the impeachment trial:

Trump’s defenders are also likely to point to cases of Democrats objecting to the results of elections, including:

“Well, what I hear is that we can all agree that we have to have election reform,” said Duff.
“So why is it we want election reform when our guy loses, but not when the other guy wins? It just is hypocrisy.”

Duff called for reforms like voter ID, signature verification, protections against dead people voting, auditing voter rolls to ensure that people who don’t even live in the state aren’t voting, and more.

“There is massive election reform to be done,” Duff said. “And the Democrats have screamed for this, until they win. So let’s do it. Game on. I’m all for it. And I see this hypocrisy as really grating Americans’ nerves.”
