19. Trump's mistake was in not setting up

the military in advance to be supportive of him. Maybe he assumed that his authority as commander-in-chief was enough.

He never intended to leave office once he got in. It offered him everything he wanted - money schemes, power, attention and adoration, international contacts and power. Michael Cohen said in his testimony before Congress that Trump never intended to leave. Too many people did not believe him.

He set up the stolen election scenario long before election day when polls showed him lagging.

He schemed with his inner circle to arrange the Jan 6 rally and attack on the Capitol.

But he failed to ensure that he had military backing to carry off the insurrection.

There are others who would like to do what Trump failed at. They will have learned from his mistake. I hope there are not any of them already in the military.
