Republicans are accusing the January 6 hearings of being a partisan witch hunt, but I’ve argued that the opposite is true: In the effort to be bipartisan, the hearings have, if anything, underplayed GOP complicity in Trump’s aborted coup.
I do also think the hearings have been an impressive presentation of the evidence, one that establishes Trump’s guilt.
