February 9, 2021: Trump On Trial for his Failed Coup

February 9, 2021: A Major Event on Capitol Hill

by Jude Cowell

Question: Does Hitler's failed coup d'etat attempt, the Beer Hall Putsch of November 8-9, 1923, historically rhyme with Trump's January 6, 2021 Insurrection against the US Congress? Well, some would say that Nazis were involved in both attempts and yours truly is one of those who would (unhappily) say it. And obviously, both attempts were failures in the government take-over department, so there's that.

Yet here's a difference: we've been informed that Trump will not testify or speak at this week's Senate trial, a wise decision by his lawyers (with perjury an issue). Witnesses may or may not be called but as we found with Trump's previous impeachment trial of January 21, 2020, this week's effort is not actually a trial without them.

Meanwhile, early this morning on the MSNBC website, an opinion by writer Hayes Brown was published concerning 'Trump Trial 2021' and Hitler's failed Beer Hall Putsch after which Adolf was arrested and tried, as you can read about, above, and sentenced to prison. During his trial "--Hitler turned his time on trial for a failed coup attempt into a propaganda win." So whether we hear from Trump concerning this week's Senate trial or not, (and even though he's deplatformed from Twitter), we know that propaganda is one of his middle names.

It remains to be seen whether the former 'president' can manage to keep his trap shut and thereby avoid interfering in the process during this week. I suspect he can because he must. How about you?
