On Tuesday, Democratic Congressman Adam Schiff said that text messages of Donald Trump, Jr. urging his father’s former chief of staff Mark Meadows to help stop the Capitol riot on January 6, revealed hypocrisy that “smacks you in the face.”
Yesterday, the January 6 committee read into the record text messages from Trump Jr. and other Fox News hosts to Meadows. In the messages, the individuals urged Meadows to tell the President to send a message to the rioters to stop what they were doing and go home.
Schiff, of Russiagate fame, made his comments on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports”

Schiff: The Texts ‘suggest that they all were aware that Donald Trump, alone, could have stopped the violence’
Mitchell asked Schiff, “What is the impact do you think of Don Jr.? Publicly, he was saying one thing and denying the severity of the insurrection while privately, he was pleading with Mark Meadows.”
“Does it, first of all, suggest that they all were aware that Donald Trump, alone, could have stopped the violence by asking him to do something about it?” Mitchell asked.
Schiff replied, “It says so much. The few text messages say so much. They tell us that these people understood the seriousness of this attack. They understood that the president was uniquely situated to try to stop it, and he wasn’t stopping it. It was going on for hours.”
President Trump did send several messages to the rioters via Twitter.
In fact, he even made a video imploring individuals to stop and go home – but ironically, his Twitter account was banned shortly thereafter.
