UPDATED: Merde Just Got Real

[We’re putting this on top tonight, as it is a big eff’ing deal. —TG]

Alert Scissorhead Jimmy-T spotted this:

This is NOT a J6C Hearing subpoena.

Someone else pointed me to this tweet this morning, but I didn’t understand the significance of it. Guys, Merrick Garland is on the move in stealth mode.

UPDATE 1: Merde got realer – The WaPo!

Justice Dept. investigating Trump’s actions in Jan. 6 criminal probe

The Justice Department is investigating President Donald Trump’s actions as part of its criminal probe of efforts to overturn the 2020 election results, according to four people familiar with the matter.

Prosecutors who are questioning witnesses before a grand jury — including two top aides to Vice President Mike Pence — have asked in recent days about conversations with Trump, his lawyers, and others in his inner circle who sought to substitute Trump allies for certified electors from some states Joe Biden won, according to two people familiar with the matter. Both spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss an ongoing investigation.

OK, so it sounds like something is actually breaking when you get 4 confirmations, even though it is not on the record.

UPDATE 2: A preview of Garland’s upcoming interview with Lester Holt

“The indictment of a former president, and perhaps a candidate for president, would arguably tear the country apart,” Holt said. “Is that your concern as you make your decision down the road here, do you have to think about things like that?”

Garland replied: “We intend to hold everyone, anyone who was criminally responsible for the events surrounding Jan. 6, for any attempt to interfere with the lawful transfer of power from one administration to another, accountable. That’s what we do. We don’t pay any attention to other issues with respect to that.”

Holt followed up, asking whether, if Trump were to become a candidate for president again, “that would not change your schedule or how you move forward or don’t move forward?”

Garland responded: “I’ll, say again, that we will hold accountable anyone who was criminally responsible for attempting to interfere with the transfer, legitimate, lawful transfer of power from one administration to the next.”

    Merrick Garland/Lisa Monaco “have been” on the move in stealth mode. It’s a BFD and a race against time, so let’s bust ass or hawl ass to get Dems elected in the midterms like our very lives depend upon because our very lives depend upon it.

    Important to note “The Department of Justice has seized the phone records of Trump’s top White House aides as they have been investigating Trump’s 1/6 actions since at least April,” from the Wapo article. The DOJ is going after Trump his attorneys, the fake electors, and everyone else who in any way interferred with the peaceful transfer of power…

    Also significant that DOJ has had Meadows’ phone records since April! He’s the key to tfg’s prison cell. I’ve wondered for a while if DOJ lack of action on Jan 6 subpoena was because they “had” him…looking more promising.
