Glenn Kirschner: Judge Luttig, darling of the right, says Trump “clear+present danger.” Trump proves it in TN speech


June 18,2022

Two highlights from the most recent January 6 committee public hearings include 1. the revelation that former President Donald Trump’s enraged mob was just 40 feet away from Mike Pence as the former Vice President was being whisked to safety by Secret Service officers, and 2. the testimony of retired federal court judge J. Michael Luttig, a darling of Republican Party, said that Donald Trump and his supporters still “represent a clear and present danger to democracy.”

In his recent speech to an evangelical group in Tennessee, Donald Trump ridiculed, demeaned and mocked Mike Pence for not overturning the election results on January 6, 2021, proving Judge Luttig’s point – Trump remains a clear and present danger to democracy.
