On Tuesday, July 27th, the House Select Committee heard testimony from four courageous police officers who protected lawmakers from rioters who went to the Capitol to stop the certification of Joe Biden’s presidential win over Donald Trump:
- Harry Dunn and Aquilino Gonell of the U.S. Capitol Police;
- and Michael Fanone and Daniel Hodges of the Washington, D.C., Metropolitan Police Department.
Their testimony was gut wrenching, horrifying, compelling, and at times heartbreaking. These men were physically and emotionally attacked: sprayed with chemicals, electrocuted over and over, assaulted, threatened and verbally abused by Trump’s mob. This is the MAGA mob that Trump and other Republicans have claimed were a bunch of nice guys full of love, just a group of tourists visiting the Capitol. No! Not at all. These officers have not yet fully recovered and may never fully recover from this trauma and they suffer from post traumatic stress disorder. And it is a real question whether our country will ever fully recover from the moral rot of Trump, Trumpism and the Republicans who have and still do enable him and deny reality. The insurrection is said to be the manifestation of deeper toxins in our country that need to be flushed out. Yes, but we can see more and more now that this was part of an attempted coup by a desperate man.
