WATCH: Tapper says “one could argue” Josh Hawley should be a co-defendant in Trump impeachment trial

During a recent segment, CNN host Jake Tapper said “one could argue” Josh Hawley should be a co-defendant in Trump impeachment trial.

“Senator Josh Hawley was just signing his name in, the Missouri Republican, who was one of those who was pushing this big lie that the election could be overturned on January 6th that was part of the reason there was this incitement and false belief by many of the insurrectionists when they stormed the Capitol,” Tapper said”

“Laura Coates, let me bring you in along with Norm, how does somebody like Josh Hawley get treated in this?” Tapper asked.

“He’s obviously a juror, but one could argue he should also be a co-defendant, in the sense that he and Ted Cruz were also responsible for pushing the big lie which maybe their words that day didn’t incite but their contribution to this fiction that the election was stolen and could be overturned on January 6th, they played a role,” he added.
