Republican Operative Rick Wilson told Democrats effectively to SPINE UP. He said that an unpunished coup is a training exercise.
A Responsible Republican not always an oxymoron
Brian Williams referred to Rick Miller's tweet where he said Democrats were going to do nothing about the January 6th attack. In effect, he called the Jan 6 Commission a paper tiger.
"They will slow roll this thing and Bannon and company believe," Rick Miller said. "And Trump's people all believe they can run out the clock. They can play this out until the very last dog dies and then they won't have any accountability. Democrats must treat this as it should be treated which is a counter-terrorism investigation. They got to take this seriously. If these guys were in Al Qaeda, they'd be having JDAMS dropped on their heads. These people were intent on overthrowing our government. You have to treat it that way."
Miller was not done. He had a prescient statement that Democrats must heed.
"These are not people that are the old Washington," Miller continued. "This isn't the old days of Ronald Reagan and Tip O'Neill sharing a beer. That is dead. It is gone. The Republican Party right now is a sole source operation dedicated to Donald Trump and Donald Trump only. Whatever electoral fantasies he has that can be translated into whatever direct action that Steve Bannon and those people come up with will be executed on, they should not think for a minute that this is over. As I like to say, an unpunished coup is a training exercise ad coup.
