What exactly was the goal of sending an angry mob to attack Congress?

Based on what the January 6th committee has so far released, it seems Trump and his inner circle of fascist ghouls were planning on sending a fake slate of electors from states he lost, have Pence declare those electors as the real ones, and then Trump wins the electoral vote in Congress. Frightening and also completely batshit stupid. However, after Pence said “fuck all that” and wouldn’t play ball, Trump and his closest dickhead allies riled up a crowd and sent them to attack Congress.

My question is, what did they think that would achieve? After Pence said no the night before, what was the goal? What did Trump and his fellow scumbags think was going to happen after they unleashed the MAGA Army and how was that going to help them at that point?

The more I learn about the Plan A for January 6th, the less Plan B makes sense beyond just causing total chaos. Any insights?

Read the never-issued Trump order that would have seized voting machines

The executive order — which also would have appointed a special counsel to probe the 2020 election — was never issued, and the remarks were never delivered. Together, the two documents point to the wildly divergent perspectives of White House advisers and allies during Trump’s frenetic final weeks in office.

It’s not clear who wrote either document. But the draft executive order is dated Dec. 16, 2020, and is consistent with proposals that lawyer Sidney Powell made to the then-president. On Dec. 18, 2020, Powell, former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn, former Trump administration lawyer Emily Newman, and former Overstock.com CEO Patrick Byrne met with Trump in the Oval Office.

Additionally, the draft order would have given the defense secretary 60 days to write an assessment of the 2020 election. That suggests it could have been a gambit to keep Trump in power until at least mid-February of 2021.
