1/6 Committee member Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) made the massive lie a query of psychological functionality, which is a intelligent approach of seeing if Trump will admit that he misplaced.
JOHN DICKERSON: Let me ask you about one of many findings on Thursday night, one of many issues we had been proven for the primary time is a number of individuals near the president telling him there was no widespread fraud, he was going to lose, that’s what the numbers confirmed. How many individuals do you assume in his- near him had been sending him that message?
REP. KINZINGER: Effectively, I look, we’re gonna get extra into that. However let me simply say this, I don’t actually know many individuals round him that really believed the election was stolen and instructed him so–
JOHN DICKERSON: Do you–
REP. KINZINGER: –He had a number of people- He had lots of people that instructed him it wasn’t.
JOHN DICKERSON: Do- had been there individuals who knew it was a lie and but carried on in his internal circle?
REP. KINZINGER: Oh, for positive. I imply, look, all it’s important to do is look at- he was surrounded by sure, people who need to come and inform him all the pieces that pleases Him. , and we’ll get extra into that. I don’t need to actually form of spoil the deep dive into some of these things. However look, I feel if anyone really believed after, , the- after what you see, after what the legal professional normal says, as an illustration, after what each piece of knowledge is available in, when you really consider the election was stolen then, if the president really believed that, as an illustration, he’s not mentally succesful to be president. I feel he didn’t consider it. I feel the individuals round him didn’t consider it. This was all about maintaining energy in opposition to the need of the American individuals.
