Also the committee keeps rerunning that White House attorney's last words to Eastman before hanging up the phone on him. They're something to the effect that he had better get himself a good defense lawyer because he will f-king need one. There's also footage of him addressing the mob at one of drumpf's rallies.

After today's hearing, I've had it with this shit. You are either for the rule of law or you are against it. If you are against it, I have nothing to say to you.
The local conservatives keep trying to dismiss and dodge. They can't bend reality.

Judge Luttig believes former Pres. Trump and his supporters "are a clear and present danger to American democracy," saying he worries they will "succeed in 2024 where they failed in 2020."

"I don't speak those words lightly."

"Donald Trump and his supporters are a clear and present danger to American democracy. That's not bc of what happened on January 6th, it's bc to this very day" Trump and his allies would attempt to overturn the 2024 election & possibly succeed, says retired Judge Michael Luttig.

Glad Judge Luttig said this out loud.

But I have news for him: white conservatism is destroying this country. He doesn't have to be one, ijs.

Greg Jacob, a Trump White House lawyer, testified he told Eastman the plan to have Pence certify the alternate slate of electors violated the 12th Amendment and that if it went to the Supreme Court Eastman would lose 9-0. Eastman replied he thought they vote lose 7-2 but then said it would probably be 12-0. So clearly, Eastman knew his plan was bogus and illegal.

While testifying, I noticed Judge Luttig spoke very slowly and deliberately as if he was examining all angles to the question before he answered.

Yeah, I don't doubt it. Probably because he's putting his life in danger by speaking out against the country's most violent political demographic. Well, the most violent demographic, period.

This seems like a fitting place even though it could go in the batcrap crazy thread.

Trump is out there today offering pardons to those jailed for J6. Continuing to tamper with witnesses and obstruct justice. Enough is enough.

Dare i hope. :shock:

Out of the blue, i get a phone call from my sister. i had written her off after she told me she joined Truth Social where she fell in with the antivax Malone crowd. Thought it a bit odd that she'd call. Especially after our last conversation some months prior when i told her what i thought of Malone and his followers. But since she is my sister, and i love my sister, i thought what the hell. It was after some small talk about how family was doing that she brought up Truth Social. i though, great, here we go again. That's when she told me she quit. Huh? Why? Turns out, after getting the lay of the site she started noticing there were some real nuts there. It was after getting into a conversations with the "King Trump" crowd that she started to have second thoughts. Apparently, some of the nuts thought Trump was the second coming. A god. As she's born again, she tried to inform them that there is only one king and Trumps not him. She said she was swarmed, and then quit. Instead of piling on with i told ya so's, i let it go with a good for her. We ended the conversation on a good note.

So out of curiosity i called my favorite Aunt who is about the only family member my sister talks to on a regular basis. We've both been concerned about my sister in the past. Wow, did i get some hopeful information. Apparently my little sister gave my brother-in-law an ultimatum. Until he watched the Jan. 6th committee and switched up Fox for some MSNBC........She didn't want him to ever raise the subject again. According to my Aunt my sister is starting to get a very good idea on how close we came to losing our democracy.

Dare i hope.

That's good news. They are definitely getting to some who were hard to reach. But the hearings are working and showing many people the truth and reality. The die hards will never be reachable, but then they are the same people/types who showed up to storm the Capital.

i think it was a 1-2 punch. Somehow, being on Truth Social and, perhaps for the first time, really coming up close to what some of the nuts believed in, and were outright willing to say..............it kinda, i dunno, seems to have shocked her a bit. i dunno.....it's still developing. My guess would be Truth Social gave her the nudge needed to actually watch the hearings.

YouTube removes video from Jan 6 panel including Trump’s election misinformation

YouTube confirmed on Friday that it had removed a video uploaded by the House select committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol riot for violating the platform’s election integrity policy.

“Our election integrity policy prohibits content advancing false claims that widespread fraud, errors or glitches changed the outcome of the 2020 U.S. presidential election, if it does not provide sufficient context. We enforce our policies equally for everyone, and have removed the video uploaded by the January 6th Committee channel,” Ivy Choi, a YouTube spokesperson, said in a statement.

Glad to hear it, HV.

They've voted majority-Republican since the Silent Majority days.

Then there's this old hood-sewing karen.

Rebecca Latimer Felton: A Featured Biography - Senate.gov
The first woman to serve in the United States Senate, Rebecca Latimer Felton (1835–1930) of Georgia was appointed to fill a vacancy on October 3, 1922. She took the oath of office on November 21, 1922, and served only 24 hours while the Senate was in session. The 87-year-old Felton's largely symbolic Senate service capped a long career in Georgia politics and journalism. When her husband, William Harrell Felton, served in the state legislature and the U.S. House of Representatives, she worked as his campaign manager, press secretary, and often his political surrogate. As she fought for temperance, populist agrarian reforms, and woman suffrage, fully embracing equality of the sexes, she was also an outspoken white supremacist and advocate of segregation. Beginning in 1899 and continuing for more than 20 years, Felton wrote a popular column for the Atlanta Semi-Weekly Journal, dispensing advice on everything from child-rearing to farming to voting. In her only Senate speech, delivered to a large audience in the Senate Chamber, Felton concluded with the following prediction: "When the women of the country come in and sit with you…you will get ability, you will get integrity of purpose, you will get exalted patriotism, and you will get unstinted usefulness."
Shut up, karen.

Listening now to the Randi broadcast, today.

These people are literally pulling KKK/White Citizen's Council/nightriding tactics.

Then, as now, it's from the highest levels of government.

These are the same people who turn around and label US "government dependent." :problemL

Violent threats are increasing against members of the J6 Committee, so security detail is being increased. Because, of course they are. Too much damaging truth is being exposed. MAGA are domestic terrorists.

One by one they have been driving nails home. This nail will be interesting....

https://www.yahoo.com/news/trump-aides- ... 17837.html
Trump aides didn't know someone was filming Trump on January 6 until the House committee got the footage: reports
Aides to Donald Trump had no idea a documentary filmmaker had recorded the former president on Jan. 6, 2021, until the House committee investigating that day subpoenaed the footage, reports said.

The existence of the footage — shot by UK documentarian Alex Holder — was first reported by Politico on Tuesday.

The outlet said that Holder complied with the House committee request and handed over several months of footage of Trump, up to and including footage he took on Jan. 6.

The New York Times reported that many top Trump advisors were surprised by news of the project, which only a small circle of close Trump aides knew about.

According to the Times it had been organised by Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, and was meant to be a "legacy project" for Trump.
