The Stupid Coup
Another investigation Hair Füror wants Republicans to take if they control Congress after the 2022 Pie Fight:
Trump says congressional investigators should examine why Pence didn’t reject electoral college results
Former president Donald Trump on Tuesday advocated a new focus for congressional investigators: why then-Vice President Mike Pence did not take steps on Jan. 6, 2021, to reject electoral college votes from several states won by Joe Biden.
Trump’s exhortation came two days after he created an uproar with a statement suggesting Pence should have “overturned” the election as he presided over the counting of electoral college votes by Congress.
In a fresh statement Tuesday, Trump offered a more nuanced take on what he would have liked to have seen from Pence, saying he “could have sent the votes back to various legislators for reassessment after so much fraud and irregularities were found.”
I guess someone convinced him that his previous written statement was a confession.
The walls are closing in on Hair Füror, or as Elton John once sang, Opportunity awaits me like a rat in a drain. His rally soundbite seems like his Id screaming and you can smell the flop sweat mixed with the loaded diaper from the space station:
“For years they’ve been going after my company, many years, using every trick in the book in an attempt to literally, if they can, put me in jail, they want to put me in jail. This has been going on since I came down the escalator with our great future first lady who everybody loves…
local prosecutors in New York and other locations who horribly campaigned for office on ‘We’re going to get Trump…
we’re gonna get him,’ then got elected and are working overtime to fulfill their campaign promises. They’ve subpoenaed more than 9 million pages—big company—of documents of virtually every deal I’ve ever done hoping to find a mistake, an error, misspelled words, a comma out of place, or anything else that they can find that might be just a little bit wrong. We relied on major law firms and accounting firms and other professionals to do this work and to the best of my knowledge they did it very, very well. As an example, the attorney general of New York has hundreds of venomous quotes about me during her campaign.
The district attorney of Manhattan, where crime death and killings are rampant like never before has happily stated that ‘I have sued Trump more than any other person alive, more than 100 times.’ Then he gets elected to take over the former attorney general’s job and he’s been after my family for years but unable to find anything, they haven’t been able to fine anything other than a fringe benefits case. And accountants will tell you, fringe benefits cases are not criminal cases, there’s never been that they know of a fringe benefits case. There’s never been a witch hunt or a fishing expedition like this, there’s never been anything like it….
This has been going on as long as you’ve known me and it will continue as long as I’m leading in the polls…
If these radical racist vicious prosecutors do anything wrong or illegal I hope we are going to have in this country the biggest protest we have ever had in Washington, D.C., in New York, in Atlanta, and elsewhere.”
That is basically demanding that his followers to pull a 1/6 on NY AG Letitia James, or Fulton County DA Lani Willis, or any of the others who are pursuing him. Already Willis asked the FBI for help with security following his threat.
UPDATE 1: AG Letitia James is a bad ass:
