Trump just proved the J6 case against him by posting his latest post calling for protests.

What else do we need to find him guilty of sedition and inciting an insurrection?

And Kevin McCarthy is looking more and more guilty of something having to do with J6 also. Might he be indicted by the Special Prosecutor for something we don't know about? Why else would he have made such a stupid statement supporting Trump's call for protests?

Our government and legal system must either take ALL these anti-American, anti-democracy cretins down or they will surely take the government down.

TDFG loves to do the mob boss thing: speaking ambiguously. He called for "protest," but he did not say "armed," "Be ready for the fight of your life," or anything else that specifically called for violence.

I'm not saying he should automatically get off the hook by omitting these phrases, just that they are not prima facie evidence of incitement. Post-facto, and considered in light of all the circumstantial evidence (including any exculpatory exhortations by Trump for peaceful protest - or lack thereof - and whether violence occurs), there may be a chargeable crime.

"Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law."

This is just his first volley. He will get more unhinged as pressure builds.

He will cross the line, if not the legal line, than the public perception line.

The public will finally see the "behind closed doors, throwing food at the walls" juvenile tantrums that we all know go on.
