“He Will Face Justice”: Steve Schmidt says MAGA’s Bannon in Legal Peril – YouTube

“We have a large segment of the country that has opted out of reality and the numbers too high, and we have to deal with the problem and get as many of them back to the reality side of the line over time. But right now a majority of the country is in fact not insane and we watched it play out, we watched Trump incite it, we watched Trump lie about the results of the election, we watched Republicans after it– condemn it–before they forgot it, and before they became complicit in the white washing, I mean what you saw was a fascist mob replete with extremist groups– storm and murder in the Capital of the United States– defecating in the hallways of the temples of democracy–urinating on the walls, carrying the confederate flag through  the rotunda,  ending [this country’s history of] the  peaceful transition of power — we now know  that there was a plan,  there is a memo, there were meetings in  the oval office around that memo: for the American president to deny the result of  the freest and fairest election in  American history and try to become a  dictator. That’s what happened. It couldn’t be more serious.”
