The events of October 13 are highlighted in this video, including the meeting between Pelosi, Schumer, and Pence, and Trump's phone call to McCarthy. It is clear that Trump is guilty of obstruction of justice, and the only question now is whether or not to charge him with a crime.

  • 00:00:00 Today's hearing focused on the president's efforts to overturn the election after the Supreme Court refused to intervene. Congressman Adam Kinzinger testified that Trump was angry about the decision and that he thought it was wrong that the court didn't call more justices. Cassidy Hutchison, an aide to Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, described a conversation in which Trump was angry about the court's decision. This evidence establishes that Trump knew he lost the election and that his actions leading up to it were criminal.
  • 00:05:00 Lawrence O'Donnell highlights the dismal Supreme Court rulings on Trump's emergency appeal and subpoena, noting that the president has lost in every court case so far.
  • 00:10:00 Today's video highlights highlights from the October 13th congressional hearing in which government documents were presented as evidence that President Donald Trump is guilty of obstructing justice. The transcript excerpt shows that the president's goose is well and truly cooked, with the unanimous findings of three judges and the Supreme Court all being in his favor. The only question left is whether or not to charge Trump with crimes, with the midterms behind him, and with the president having shown a lack of concern for the safety of Congress and the capital.
  • 00:15:00 In this video, Lawrence O'Donnell highlights the events of October 13, when House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) met with Vice President Mike Pence to discuss whether or not they should attempt to stop President Donald Trump from taking office. At the meeting, it was determined that Republicans would not be able to block Trump's inauguration, and McConnell later admitted that he was not as determined to save the day as Pelosi was. McCarthy also testified that he left the room while Trump was making phone calls to Trump, and Trump allegedly told him that the people in the Capitol care more about the situation than he does.
