Glenn Kirschner: J6 hearing exposes more Trump election crimes AND his victimization of election worker Shay Moss


June 22,2022

The latest January 6 public hearing exposed additional evidence of Donald Trump’s election crimes. He corruptly pressured state election officials and politicians in Georgia, Arizona and elsewhere, soliciting election fraud in his desperate attempt to unconstitutionally cling to power.

Notably, at the beginning of the hearing, Rep. Adam Schiff read into the record a newly posted statement by Trump. The first witness to testify was Speaker of the Arizona House Rusty Bowers. Trump issued a statement claiming that he had a conversation with Speaker Bowers in which Bowers told him (Trump) that the presidential election was rigged. Speaker Bowers testified, under oath, that Trump’s claim was a lie. But what it did show was that Trump remains willing to obstruct an official congressional proceeding. moreover, this conduct by Trump was reminiscent of how he used hatred to chill the testimony of Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch as she was appearing before Congress.

But the most gut-wrenching portion of the hearing was the testimony of election worker Shay Moss. Trump and Rudy Giuliani falsely claimed that Ms. Moss committed crimes by, essentially stuffing Georgia ballot boxes with fraudulent votes for Joe Biden. This was a flat-out lie, but once Trump put her name out into the public square, Trump’s base went after Ms. Shay Moss and her mother, making their lives a living hell.

This video discusses some of the evidence of Trump’s crimes, as well as the crimes of Rudy Giuliani and John Eastman.
