With all the positive excitement of attending a Trump Event to have their voices heard, in Washington, D.C. on January 6, 2021, Trump supporters filled the designated space to listen to their President. He was late getting started and went a little longer than expected and all of the people waiting for instructions on where to go next, of which the President told them all to follow the secret service to the Capitol Building, and he would meet them over there and tell them all the list of proof he had pertaining to voter fraud. That was the plan. So as the people followed behind the secret service they heard some “booms” and sirens, and noticed emergency vehicles headed toward the capitol.
Trump’s group was making their way to the capitol and within a very short length of time, there was a public announcement made by the President telling the people to go home and be safe. Many of the supporters did not hear the announcement for they were still marching to the Capitol and filming with their cell phones.
So chatter was he did and fact checkers said he didn’t call the insurrection act. However, “VERIFY” made a video announcing “What is the Insurrection Act?” It explains what must be done… and it made no further confirmation or denial.
In this video, Verify Sources explain what constitutes the resurrection act. Robert Peck, Center of Constitutional Litigation, Constitutional Attorney, explains what needs to be done before the insurrection act can be issued. He states that, “To issue the insurrection act, the president must first issue a public proclamation. You cannot issue an insurrection act secretly.
“The public proclamation is for those who are insurgents; telling them to cease and desist and to go back to their homes peaceably.”
Below is the public proclamation, issued by President Trump on January 6, 2021, telling the people who were involved in the act, and others to go back to their homes peaceably. He also proclaims the election was stolen, and a few other things.
He starts out with, “I know your pain, I know your hurt, we had an election that was STOLEN FROM US. A landslide election, and everyone knows it, especially the other side – BUT YOU HAVE TO GO HOME NOW. WE HAVE TO HAVE PEACE. WE HAVE TO HAVE LAW AND ORDER WE HAVE TO RESPECT OUR GREAT PEOPLE IN LAW AND ORDER, we don’t want anybody hurt. It’s a very tough period of time…..(listen to the entire proclamation).
Now as much as I hate to show CNN, they jazzed it up as an emergency announcement.
The Associated Press shows that Trump urges Capitol protestors to “go home now”. Go home in peace!
So, there you have it. Take it like you want, but to me, it looks like he made a public proclamation – that hit all the news sites, interrupted programmed viewing and was indeed a PUBLIC PROCLAMATION. At the time we all said, and it was an EMERGENCY ANNOUNCEMENT. News sources called it a Special Emergency Broadcast; BREAKING NEWS; EMERGENCY ANNOUNCEMENT. It’s all on record.
So??? Directly after that proclamation, national guard descended upon D.C. And not until after he made his PUBLIC PROCLAMATION. Prior to the speech, D.C. Police were in charge. It appears, President Trump acted swiftly. Just because we the people don’t know the process, doesn’t mean it’s not taking place. Thus the saying, those who know, know.
This is why they WANTED TO INVOKE THE 25TH AMENDMENT (that was the only way to stop the insurrection act) then, they pushed to impeach. This is why Graham says if the Dems do this they will be opening Pandora’s box and won’t be able to put the lid back on.
