Trust me on this part, the people involved will keep swearing that they are being maligned, lied about, that they are patriots, it was just tourists, etc. But we’ve had six of the House Select January 6th Investigative Committee Hearings and I’m totally convinced by the testimony by the REPUBLICAN witnesses. They are not holding back.
These are people who were present in the meetings with the PLANNERS of the event. They sat in on conversations with Trump, Guiliani, Eastman, Meadows, McCarthy, Greene, Gaetz, Jordan, and others. They are detailing the plans and who said things to whom. These are first-person accounts.
Now some would call this “throwing people under the bus”. I take issue with that. With this many actors in the event, it was bound to unravel. The only questions was how fast and who would find the right “end” of the snarl in that ball of yarn to pull to make it unravel. Turns out the answer was about 18 months and Bennie Thompson. There are still some snarls to unknot but we’re rapidly getting there. Very impressive.
Now we still need to find out how Ginni Thomas and the CNP Advisors Panel figure into this. The Federalist Society is also part of the deal and needs to answer for its part of it. Alexander Hamilton and Thomas Jefferson would not be pleased with what they’ve participated in.
Plus we need to consider expanding the SCOTUS. Back in 1897, we expanded the court to nine when the Circuit courts were expanded to nine. Now we have thirteen. Problem here is that we will likely have to kill the filibuster. I think we’re backed into a corner. It has to happen.
Then look into Thomas and Alito for breach of oath and Kavanaugh and Barrett (possibly Gorsuch) for lying during confirmation hearings. Can we impeach any of them? Maybe, maybe not.
In the meantime, let’s elect as many Democrats as possible. Start with voting for Stacey Abrams and Raphael Warnock, and just keep going with Charlie Bailey, Jen Jordan, Bee Nyugen, William Boddie, and just keep going down the ballot voting for all the Democrats INCLUDING ME!
