It’s Showtime

OK, today’s the day. Take it away WaPo email thingie (the Axios brevity thing is infecting others):

The Jan. 6 committee will hold its final public meeting today.

  • What to expect: The House panel is set to vote on referring former president Donald Trump for criminal charges, concluding its 18-month examination of the 2021 attack on the U.S. Capitol.
  • Why now? It’s ahead of the expected release of the panel’s final report, which should tell the most comprehensive story yet of the events leading up to the attack.
  • The schedule: The meeting is set to begin at 1 p.m. Eastern time.

We thought we’d put that on top, get the essentials out of the way before bloviating that essentially the Jan 6 Committee cannot indict anyone, they can only make recommendations to the DOJ, and we are lead to believe that  Special Council Jack Smith is already looking into it.

But what today’s big action does do is officially turn over ALL the evidence, all the interviews ,all the stuff to Smith. In effect, it tesseracts him (is too a vurb) ahead by at least a year if not more: he doesn’t have to re-interview anyone or re-verify anything. The select committee’s report is also sure to create a renewed sense of urgency behind Smith’s investigation.

Anyway, the Committee’s final report “will be published in an eight-chapter report to be released no later than Wednesday. The executive summary alone is expected to run 100 pages,” per our pals at Electoral-Vote, who add that by putting “everything on the website of the Government Publishing Office, the new Republican-controlled House won’t be able to make it go away.”

Good to know.

  1. I am hoping ten years might be a life sentence for the former President.

    Jail to the former chief!

    Criminal referrals to DOJ for indictments on four charges; they say he did it.

      No shit. we saw this stupidity in real time. There was no attempt to hide it. Trump just said “Fuck you. Try and stop me” A statistically large portion of the population just went with it. Those people have not gone away. I will believe consequences when I see it.
