Analysis: A damning Donald Trump quote you need to hear from Thursday's January 6 hearing


None was more damning than a quote that re-surfaced during the latest public hearing of the House select committee investigating January 6 on Thursday. CNN reported on the existence of Donoghue's notes -- and the Trump quote therein -- in July 2021But in the context of the case being made by the January 6 committee, the quote is absolutely stunning and deeply revealing. Second, the quote reveals -- or, in truth, re-reveals -- the utter misunderstanding (and contempt) that Trump had for the Department of Justice. (Worth noting: It wasn't just the Department of Justice where Trump seemed to fundamentally misunderstand his power over them. But what is clear is that Trump viewed the Justice Department as just another arm by which to carry out his agenda.
