Letter to the editor: Key witness
To the editor:
There is one central witness to the botched coup that should enter forever testimony. He could provide facts unheard by other victims, now jurors. Mike Pence may accept an invitation, or he may need to be subpoenaed to testify in the current proceedings. Besides remembering the victims/jurors, of the horrors of the day he could provide a firsthand, in the moment account from “Mr. vice-president, please come with us” to “All clear.”
As a reminder to the defenders of the defendant, Charles Manson sat in prison for decades for murders he did not commit. Those convicted of the slaughters used the defense that Manson (the prophet) had convinced them to do his killing. But you know what? They still killed those people. And they spent their dying decades incarcerated. May the victim/jurors free themselves of a lifetime in disgrace.
