CNN Reality Checker Blasts Trump Impeachment Protection Crew for ‘Egregious Cherry-Selecting’

CNN fact-checker Daniel Dale on Monday criticized former President Donald Trump’s legal defense team after examining the impeachment ahead of the Senate trial on Tuesday.

Trump cardThe yada-yada legal team blows past the incendiary fragments Trump cardJanuary 6th speech – the media are accused of picking cherries while engaging in outrageous cherry picking, ”Dale tweeted Monday.

Dale, who has read or heard almost every word Trump uttered in office and which documents more than 30,000 lies, also says the former president’s embarrassed legal team will argue the January 6 riot was not pre-planned. Others disagree.

Trump’s legal team also argues that Trump’s comments were “mischaracterized” in the months leading up to the January 6th speech, and since the January 6th riot was pre-planned and began before Trump finished his speech, Trump’s speech failed to stimulate him .

This is wrong

“Just before a MAGA mob descended on the US Capitol on Wednesday and caused a riot that resulted in the death of five people, including a beaten-to-death Capitol police officer, President Donald Trump delivered a speech to his supporters used the words “fight” or “fight” at least 20 times, “Vox reported.

“We’re going to have to fight a lot harder and Mike Pence will have to get through for us,” Trump said at one point, alluding to Pence’s ultimate refusal to try to steal the election for him during the hearing that day that the electoral college made his loss officially.

They also claim it is “just absurd” to hold Trump responsible for the actions of a “small group of criminals”. Thousands of Trump backing insurgents attacked the U.S. Capitol that day, hundreds of whom had listened to Trump’s speech.

Trump, the Independent’s Andrew Feinberg argued, must have known the impact his words would have because his team was monitoring social media and sites like Reddit, Facebook, Gab and Parlor along with QAnon groups and seeing plans being made .

NEW: Former White House and Trump campaign officials said President Trump was informed of plans to storm the Capitol through online chatters as his social media team spotted pro-Trump online communities like TheDonald & 8kun closely monitored.
