The January 6 plot thickens ...

 

The Washington Post - Exclusive - Ginni Thomas corresponded with John Eastman ...

 

15 June

 


The House committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the Capitol has obtained email correspondence between Virginia “Ginni” Thomas, the wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, and lawyer John Eastman, who played a key role in efforts to pressure Vice President Mike Pence to block the certification of Joe Biden’s victory, according to three people involved in the committee’s investigation.

 

The emails show that Thomas’s efforts to overturn the election were more extensive than previously known ...

 

The committee’s members and staffers are now discussing whether to spend time during their public hearings exploring Ginni Thomas’s role in the attempt to overturn the outcome of the 2020 election ...

 

 

 

 

 

Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas sits with his wife, conservative activist Ginni Thomas,
and Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell in 2021.
 

 

 

 

EDIT

 

One terrifying reader's comment / prediction:

 

"Gianni Thomas as the next Attorney General to lead the Inquisition for a totally unconstrained Trump."

Day 3:

 

The NY Times - Live Updates: Jan. 6 Panel Says Trump Was Told Plan to Overturn Election Was Illegal

 

breaking

 


In its third hearing this month laying out the findings of its investigation so far, the panel detailed the intense pressure campaign Mr. Trump and the conservative lawyer John Eastman waged against Mr. Pence to try to get him to overturn the election, which the panel says directly contributed to the violent siege of Congress.

 

Both men knew the plan was unlawful ... and ultimately, Mr. Eastman sought a pardon following the riot after being informed by one of Mr. Trump’s top White House lawyers that he had criminal exposure for hatching the scheme.

 

The panel also presented in chilling detail how Mr. Trump, knowing that rioters had violently stormed the Capitol with Mr. Pence inside, posted a tweet condemning his vice president for failing to reject the election results, sending Mr. Pence fleeing for his life just 40 feet away from the mob that was calling for his execution. ...

 

The retired conservative federal Judge J. Michael Luttig, who advised Mr. Pence to resist Mr. Trump’s effort to overturn the election, delivered strongly worded testimony in which he said that if the vice president had gone along, it would have been “tantamount to a revolution,” and “the first constitutional crisis since the founding of the republic.” 

 

 

 

 

That Pence was pressured by Trump’s team to do something unconstitutional is one of the linchpins of the committee’s argument that Trump is responsible for the violence of Jan. 6.

Trump banging on about January 6 is not doing good things for Republicans. Is he still going to be harping on about it if he get the nomination for 2024? I really hope not.

 

Imagine if, say, Ron De Santis gets it. What then? Would Trump start the election fraud bs again? Or "wah wah, the Republicans are all against me!" ?

The truly alarming aspect is that Ginni Thomas expects everyone to believe that her 'Election Fraud' stance in no way influences her Supreme Court husband's thinking. Clarence Thomas should resign.

The Guardian - Jan 6 hearings: Trump is ‘clear and present danger to American democracy’, conservative judge warns

 

today

 


J Michael Luttig, a former US appellate court judge who is considered one of the top conservative legal minds in the United States, has warned the January 6 committee that Donald Trump poses a continuing danger to the country’s democracy.

 

Donald Trump and his allies and supporters are a clear and present danger to American democracy,” Luttig said.

 

That’s not because of what happened on January 6. It’s because to this very day, the former president and his allies and supporters pledge that in a presidential election of 2024, if the former president or his anointed successor as the Republican party presidential candidate were to lose that election, that they would attempt to overturn that 2024 election in the same way that they attempted to overturn the 2020 election but succeed in 2024 where they failed in 2020.”

 

 

 

 

Warning - the judge speaks very slowly and deliberately - not a great public speaker!  🤨

Please let Trump have equal time while being questioned by Liz Cheney.

She's no big brain box, but she a Stephen Hawking compared to Trump.

Independent: Trump demands ‘equal time’ as he accuses networks of broadcasting ‘slanderous’ Jan 6 committee

The former president took to his own social media platform, Truth Social, to complain that the hearings are “low rated”, “one-sided”, and “slanderous”.

Further, he demanded that he receive “equal time” to lay out a case for his unfounded allegations of voter fraud in the 2020 election.

Mr Trump posted: “The Fake News Networks are perpetuating lies, falsehoods, and Russia, Russia, Russia type disinformation (same sick people, here we go again!) by allowing the low rated but nevertheless one-sided and slanderous Unselect Committee hearings to go endlessly and aimlessly on (and on and on!).”

He continued: “It is a one-sided, highly partisan Witch Hunt, the likes of which has never been seen in Congress before. Therefore, I am hereby demanding EQUAL TIME to spell out the massive Voter Fraud & Dem Security Breach!”

The former president underlined his demand with a follow-up post: “I DEMAND EQUAL TIME!!!”

A voter in Marjorie Taylor Greene's district.

Washington Post: The town crier

Deepening suspicions. A parallel voting system. Dumpster diving for documents. In northwest Georgia, a woman known as ‘Burnitdown’ portends what the Trump movement is becoming.

...In Georgia Representative. Marjorie Taylor Greene, [a Republican nut] did not see what much of America saw — a person willing to do almost anything to keep emotions running high, whether that meant perpetuating lies about election fraud, harassing a victim of a school shooting, speaking at a white nationalist conference or casting fellow citizens who disagree with her as “domestic terrorists.”

Instead, [the nut] saw a person like herself: a political outsider who shared the same sense of urgency about the same dystopian America, one that required a popular uprising to save it. To that end, Rubino had so far managed to rally enough people to get the county election board ousted, replacing its members with those who believed that the 2020 election was stolen. She was part of a group called the Domestically Terrorized Moms that was pressing the local school board to get rid of a curriculum they believed to be grooming children for sexual predators.

Independent: ‘They put tampons in men’s bathrooms’: Marjorie Taylor Greene blames shortage on transgender people

Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene has blamed transgender people for the nationwide shortage of tampons in the United States.

The Georgia Republican claimed the shortage, fueled by supply shortages, is triggered by the White House putting tampons in men’s bathrooms.

“Men have taken over everything. They’re ‘women of the year’ in every category, in women’s categories,” she told conservative Right Side Broadcasting Network.

She continued her diatribe against the transgender community by adding: “Now there’s a shortage of tampons, and that’s probably because men are buying tampons.”

“Are you telling me that this is legit,” host Brian Glenn asked Ms Greene.

She said: “I’m telling you the truth. You can look it up. Look it up on the internet. Everything’s true on the internet.”

“They put tampons in men’s bathrooms,” Ms Greene reiterated, denouncing what she claimed was a “war on women”.

However, in reality, the shortage of tampons has been triggered by rising production costs due to a spike in the prices of raw materials such as cotton and plastic.

This sounds like very few people voted in that one.
