Those mooks from the Stupid Coup who are rejecting subpoena’s to the Jan 6 Committee don’t know what small-time pikers they are. Embarrassing, really.

Republicans, make way for a pro to show you how it is done:

In a letter sent on Saturday 5 March 2022, the Russian Federation informed the Court that it “ha[d] decided not to participate in the oral proceedings due to open on 7 March 2022”.

The Court will now begin its deliberation.
