Trump's Secret Service Detail 'Cheered on the Insurrection'—Carol Leonnig

"The second part I would stress is both of these individuals, Bobby Engel and Tony Ornato were very close to President Trump.

"Some people accused them of, at times, being yes-men and enablers of the President, particularly Tony Ornato.

"People who wanted to do what [Trump] wanted and see him pleased.

"That was frustrating to agents that were more focussed on security or being independent or good planning.

"So both of these individuals lose a little bit of credibility because of how closely they have been seen as aligned to Donald Trump.


  1. Out of curiousity, and since you're a psychologist, consider asking yourself this: how much of this is true and how much of this is heresay and uncorroborated testimony that you want to believe is true because you hate Trump?

  2. Ri-i-i-ight. We need to shmutz up a little the reputations of anyone who might distort the narrative by testifying they were actually there in the vehicle.

    Question: did the one witness so far keep journal? Did she tell a close friend? Or did she just keep this all to herself till the committee reached out to her or vice-versa she approached the committee? Is there ANY corroborating evidence at all?
