Letter: More dumb crook news

As I watched the January 6th hearings, astonishment was my constant companion. I wasn’t surprised by the assault on the Capitol. Trump and his minions made it abundantly clear that they were prepared to do whatever it took to reinstall Trump as president, up to and including killing Mike Pence and Nancy Pelosi. And given the disturbing tendency of Americans to slaughter school children, a political coup involving homicide didn’t seem like much of a reach.

What startled me most was the sheer stupidity of both the plotters and the participants. Trump’s foot soldiers not only committed a major felony in broad daylight and in view of the nation, they videoed themselves in the process, thus making it easy for the FBI to find them and the government to prosecute them. Seriously? You break into the nation’s Capitol, desecrate the building with human waste, assault police officers, and steal documents and property while filming every intricate detail and even identifying yourself.

And the planning committee for the attack? These geniuses exchanged emails and texts discussing in precise detail what they intended and why. They established a digital footprint that would last into perpetuity, again making their arrest and prosecution a pro forma affair. And these people were lawyers? Explains why New York got all the lawyers and Jersey got all the toxic waste dumps. Jersey got first pick. If you’re gonna be dumb, you better be tough. This crew is only dumb.
