5. Would White House staff's internet history be subpoenable?

If they can identify what was known about the far-right chatter, and then subpoena Scavino (with a threat of charging him with complicity in the plots if he won't say what he knew about them by claiming "executive privilege", it's good evidence of intent for the impeachment.

6. Did they just not understand how stupid these guys were?

They were running around like 4 year olds mugging for all 2 000 Capitol cameras.

There were obviously some really bad guys up front but so many of these guys were just stupid looking fools who were just out for a lark.

9. Remember these are White House insiders

They’re going to spin as much cotton candy on what Trump does and says as they can while still trying to cover their asses. Being too honest doesn’t reflect well on them.
