The Stupid Coup, Part Infinity

H/T Scissorhead Skinny-D

Guys, I got up before 5AM to be ready for the 7AM start, and had re-arranged my day to accommodate my commitments. So when the revised time was announced I was already totally eff’ed in the dark.

In other words, I didn’t watch a moment of the hearings.

Maybe I can catch up on it tonight.

Anyway, The WaPo has a “live” summary of what happened here. I’m scrolling through it, looks like there are some blockbusters include a cliffhanger at the end: the Jan 6 Committee has some evidence that Trump hisself tried to contact a witness (one that we do not know about yet).

Committee Chairman Bennie G. Thompson (D-Miss.) said Tuesday that former president Donald Trump tried to call one of the committee’s witnesses after the panel’s last hearing, which was held June 28.

“After our last hearing, President Trump tried to call a witness in our investigation, a witness you have not yet seen in these hearings,” Thompson said. “That person declined to answer or respond to President Trump’s call and instead alerted their lawyer to the call. Their lawyer alerted us.”

The committee, Thompson said, has “supplied that information to the Department of Justice.”

“Let me say one more time: We will take any effort to influence witness testimony very seriously,” Thompson warned.

 

The DOJ needs to be on that Stat.

Question: does anyone know if Merrick Garland even owns a teevee?

  1. Per Mrs BDR, who HAS been watching, a WH photographer was in on ALL THE THINGS, because what’s better than taking notes on a goddamned criminal conspiracy? Why having PHOTOS taken of a goddamned criminal conspiracy!

    Also, said photographer is the one Lord Damp Nut fucked over by barging in and making his stupid expensive vanity coffee table book no one bought, demolishing her plans for a book.

    Not only was she in the room, she had to listen very very carefully to everything, so as to know when and who to take pictures of. So she paid close attention to what was being said.

    His life long habit of treating the help like worthless shit may, in the end, pay off.

    Probably has one in his office. Laurence Tribe believes Mr Garland will do the right thing and indict TFG because our democracy is at risk, and because Mr. Garland believes in America…

    Everyone needs to CTFD about Garland and recall what happened to all of the convictions in the Iran-Contra scandal. The convictions of Oliver North and others were tossed because DOJ got crosswise with grants of immunity from a Congressional committee. The outcome of midterrms has no bearing on the actions of the DOJ. Chill!

    Doesn’t matter. Garland, like the president, doesn’t want to upset the fee fees of morally bankrupt republicans along with enraging their idiot supporters. He, unlike the corrupt SC justices will look to precedent so as to not indict presidents, current or former.

    All the quotes above attributed to Chairman Thompson were actually uttered by the Vice Chair Liz Cheney. And WaPo wonders why I won’t buy a subscription.

    Tampering with witnesses means the DOJ no longer has any choice. RICO is now a given not counting all the other charges that the DOJ can’t discuss because of frigging ongoing investigations. There are still 3 months before the midterms. Hell, the rapture could occur before then. JS:)

    It would be great if at least some of his crimes come back to bite him in the butt. Personally, I am not holding my breath. The list sure is getting long tho, isn’t it?
