I missed this yesterday, we regret the omission:
The House committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the Capitol is asking former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) to voluntarily sit with its investigators, claiming he advised the Trump team in the days after the former president’s loss in the 2020 election.
“Information obtained by the Select Committee suggests that you provided detailed directives about the television advertisements that perpetuated false claims about fraud in the 2020 election, that you sought ways to expand the reach of this messaging, and that you were likely in direct conversations with President Trump about these efforts,” the committee wrote in its letter to Gingrich.
According to the panel, Gingrich was in touch with a number of Trump’s advisors, with his communications ranging from weighing in on ads that he said needed to include a “call to action” to influence voters to even reaching out to high-level White House staff like chief of staff Mark Meadows about how Trump could challenge electors from key states.
Those of you who have been with MPS for a while already know that OG racist Noot is a small obsession of mine. From the Contract on America forward I put most of the blame/credit for the horrible state of American politics right at the stubby little devil hooves of staff-banging, serial adulterer and now conveniently converted to Catholicism Newt Gingrich. From his weaponizing words vocabulary lessons back in the age of GOPAC, we see that he is still up to his old tricks:
In one email sent shortly after Georgia election officials warned the public of the violent threats made against its workers, Gingrich wrote to Kushner and Miller about the strategy.
“The goal is to arouse the country’s anger through new verifiable information the American people have never seen before[.] . . . If we inform the American people in a way they find convincing and it arouses their anger[,] they will then bring pressure on legislators and governors,” Gingrich wrote.
And that’s exactly what they did, except for the part about it being verifiable, of course.
Noot also knows how the gubmint works, so this part of the article is chilling: he’s teaching the 4th Reich janissaries how to overthrow the government without leaving fingerprints (except the old dope used email, so even Newticles is slipping in his dotage):
In another email, Gingrich was in touch with Meadows as well as White House counsel Pat Cipollone about how they could seek to influence electors,
“Is someone in charge of coordinating all the electors? Evans makes the point that all the contested electors must meet on [D]ecember 14 and send in ballots to force contests which the house would have to settle,” Gingrich wrote in a Nov. 12 email.
Trump would go on to pursue a plan of challenging electors, both by submitting what his own team dubbed “fake” elector certificates and also by pressuring former Vice President Mike Pence to buck his ceremonial duty to certify the election.
He’s smart, he’s evil, and he’s back. Never underestimate how much Noot hates democracy, it will always be what motivates him.
