Littwin: An open mind and the latest Jan. 6 House committee hearing should seal the case against Trump
The most obvious question before us following Thursday night’s powerful, Trump-eviscerating Jan. 6 committee hearing is whether it moved the needle even a little. Because if this prime-time hearing — almost certain to have been the most watched of the committee’s mini-series to date, following, as it did, Cassidy Hutchinson’s bombshell testimony while promising a […]

At the time, I wrote that those leaders were “cultivating resentment, anger and hate.” I forgot to include violence. But that is […]
