The Stupid Coup, part infinity
This is interesting: Suddenly career-less Rep. Mo Brooks has decided, you know, to testify:
Rep. Mo Brooks — one of the Republican lawmakers facing calls from the January 6 committee to testify about his interactions with former President Donald Trump — said Wednesday that he is willing to testify but only in public.
“My basic requirement is it be in public so the public can see it — so they don’t get bits and pieces dribbled out,” the Alabama Republican said. He also said he’d testify only about matters related to January 6, 2021, and wants to see copies of any documents beforehand that the panel may ask him about.
Even though the House select committee announced subpoenas for Brooks and four other Republicans last month, he had yet to be served with one because he had been campaigning for the GOP Senate nomination in Alabama. Brooks lost in a runoff Tuesday night.
Motor-mouth Mo might have a few things to say about why he was wearing body armor while giving a speech before the riots (for instance). World’s Worst Chess player Hair Füror —who cannot think of one move in advance— might regret throwing ol’ Mo under the bus just because he wanted a win to increase his king maker image.
FYI, the Jan 6 Hearings will continue today. Today’s topic is how Hair Füror pressured the DOJ to help him overthrow the gubmint.
The House January 6 Committee will pause hearings after today and schedule more in July, based in part on new evidence that has come to light just since the public-hearing phase of the investigation began.
