January 6 Committee Knows How To Tell the Story

Axios’ morning email thingie tells us…

Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.), vice chair of the House committee investigating Jan. 6, told CNN’s Jake Tapper last night that the committee is looking at whether former President Trump committed a crime during the riot:

  • “[W]e know from firsthand testimony that he watched television while the attack was underway. … We know that he did not walk the very few steps to the White House briefing room, get on camera immediately, and tell the people to stop and go home.”

“The president of the United States is responsible for ensuring that the laws are faithfully executed. He’s responsible for the security of other branches,” Cheney continued.

  • “So, for a president to — through either his action or his inaction, for example, attempt to impede or obstruct the counting of electoral votes, which is an official proceeding of Congress … — the committee is … looking at whether what he did constitutes that kind of a crime.”

And we know move to former White House press secretary and former chief of staff to former First Stripper, er, Mel, Stephanie Grisham might be a terrible human being, but she is a credible witness who resigned from a prestige post while Hair Füror’s Stupid Coup was unfolding in the Capitol:

If that sounds familiar, it should. It confirms what Sen. Ben Sasse said:

“Trump was walking around the White House confused about why other people on his team weren’t as excited as he was, as you had rioters pushing against Capitol police, trying to get into the building. That was happening. He was delighted.”

I’m not in the habit of praising a Cheney, so I will praise the January 6 Committee instead: they are doing a masterful job of selectively releasing news to our Failed Political Press, which is thirsty for tabloid fodder. Whoever is doing the Committee’s media strategy knows a thing or two about how to sell a story.

    Agreed, but we need increasing traction and acceleration to put this treasonous fuck on trial.

    The horror is not just him, but his continuing support in the GQP, in Congress, and among the MAGA morons. And it’s not like NSDAP members will forsake der Führer just because he was the one who lit the Reichstag fire, no matter how strong the evidence is.

    Press on regardless. It’s esssential.

    “Dubious Caesar,” wish I could take credit for that, but Colbert beat me to it, and when was the last time a Republican took a stand you may ask?

    I will praise Cheney.

    She’s a patriot, the loyal opposition, our bastard, etc…

    It takes strength of character to stand tall in hell and she’s doing it.

    I’d like to see more like her, even if it were her father leading the GOP.

      Yes, one has to give the devil her due. She at least sees the necessity of preventing the country from sliding into the control of an authoritarian lunatic, who would destroy constitutional government in this country and turn the USA into a fascist dictatorship. We owe her that, at least.

    Personally, I wouldn’t be too pissed if they continue to release juicy tidbits right up until around September or October in advance of the November elections.
