Trump Team Received Powerpoint Presentation on Plotting a Coup Ahead of J6

There are times that the American political system seems irreparably bizarre.  Times in which the reality of our situation is completely and utterly ludicrous in ways that we could never have imagined possible, even in Washington DC – a place known for the outlandish and clandestine.

And, if we’re being honest, this sort of turn toward the wacky has been accelerated in recent years, leaving a great many of us simply scratching our heads every time a new, zany story comes bounding out of The Beltway.

A lawyer for Mark Meadows says the former Trump White House chief of staff was the recipient of a PowerPoint document detailing ways to undermine the count of the 2020 election but did nothing with it, according to the New York Times.

The 38-page document, which is among thousands of pages of materials Meadows provided to the House committee investigating the January 6 insurrection at the US Capitol, was initially circulated by a retired Army colonel who was working to challenge the results, according to the Times. CNN has not independently verified the contents of the PowerPoint.

Phil Waldron, a retired colonel who spread misinformation about election fraud in the presidential election, told the Times that he circulated the PowerPoint among allies of former President Donald Trump, including lawmakers on Capitol Hill. Waldron told the Times that he did not directly send the document to Meadows, but that it was possible someone on his team had passed it along to the former chief of staff.
