"The witness list for Tuesday's hearing includes three individuals from Georgia: Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, his deputy Gabe Sterling and former election worker Wandrea ArShaye "Shaye" Moss.

Rusty Bowers, a Republican who is the Arizona House speaker, is also scheduled to testify, the committee formally announced Monday.

"During this hearing, what we'll demonstrate is that President Trump and his allies drove a pressure campaign based on lies and these lies led to threats that put state and local officials and their families at risk, these lies perpetuated the public's belief that the election was stolen, tainted by widespread fraud. And these lies also contributed to the violence on January 6," a select committee aide said.

"We will show that the President was warned that these actions, including false claims of election fraud, pressuring state and local officials, risked violence," the aide added, but Trump "did it anyway."

I heard the phone call to the GA SOS was an hour long! Lots of time for the------------- to hang himself.

It's been 50 years since we've seen a president this stupid.

Twin - Only 20 years, GWB was pretty stupid. Now Dan Quayle and Trump could have an entitled spoiled idiot contest.

Funny flags, Mao tse Cow?

Is that what the facts have driven you down too for lack of actual argument?

Or are you carefully avoiding any information that is factual?

You know, Trumpers testifying against Trumpers.

Perhaps it is just too difficult to watch patriotic Republicans who supported Trump draw the line at lying for him.

At least there were a few of them.

Dan Quayle convinced Pence that Trump and his loonies were lying and the VP can not pick the President.

We owe a surprising debt of gratitude to a VP I've long thought of as a worthless idiot.

I suppose. But he should have gone to the FBI to report an attempt to overthrow to circumvent the peaceful transfer of power.

"But he should have gone to the FBI "

He'd quickly demand investigations into the oranges of the probe.
