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?
