In Defying the Odds, we discuss Trump's dishonesty and his record of disregarding the rule of law. Our next book, Divided We Stand, looks at the 2020 election and the January 6 insurrection. We now know that Trump fired up the mob against Pence after learning about the violence at the Capitol. Was he trying to get them to kill Pence, or did he just not care one way or the other? There was danger all around. And last night's hearing showed that he did nothing to stop the violence.
