I was reading from a historical book, The Impeding Crisis by David Potter and found something quite similar to Trump’s ideals. It made me wonder if Trump’s cohorts used this material. It stated: Another point of danger was the national capital itself. Lincoln’s sense of being the target of a conspiracy was no doubt enhanced by the reports that he began to receive of plots to prevent the official counting of electoral ballots, to disrupt his inauguration, to assassinate him, or even to seize control of Washington by force. Sound familiar?
