Remember, these were the people in charge of protecting the country.

#1 Fat Nixon was busy selling out to Putin. If he weasels his way back into power he will finish the job. The only thing holding him back was the need to be re-elected.

This is weirdly and wonderfully satisfying to read.
Ha!

No one wondered who the people running around all over the place with cameras were, or what they were doing?

I suppose they just assumed Lewzer hired them to record all his gloriousness on the road to victory and then just forgot about them when he lewzed?

I am amused.

When you see a film crew you assume they're filming.

Unless of course you're an rtard.

This is genius by RS, really.

When has Donald Trump ever kicked out people who wanted to point a camera at him?

Can't wait to see what they caught.

I can't help but ask, if you see a bunch of people walking around with video cameras, lights and microphones, what exactly did you think was going on?

Just a guess, but considering the private nature of the filming, I'd say they thought the purpose was to show the Trump's as a close-knit, loving, normal everyday American family, embracing each other with joy and a song in their hearts.

(Sort of like a family photo Christmas card, in front of a fireplace, with the family dog at their feet.)

In other words, another scam to hide the truth of Trump's post-mortem legacy. It would just like Trump to keep lying long after his death.

Mango Mussolini probably thought he had an ironclad NDA on the film crew, and like a good fascist, thought preserving the glorious ascension into power would be good propaganda...

Lordy, there are tapes!

Excellent. I've always thought Trump's vanity would be his undoing. May it be so.

NDA's are meaningless when it comes to subpoena's. It would be completely in character for Fat Nixon to believe an NDA would protect him from that. Just another example of the corrupt criminal incompetence that was a hallmark of the worst administration in history.

Maybe they thought...oh, never mind. Those people don't think.

NDA ~ a non-disclosure agreement waiting for what? Running in a continuous loop at Trump's "Un-Presidential Library"?

Ivanka was talking out both sides of her mouth.

Told the committee she respected Barr and his opinion of Trump's attempt to subvert democracy.

Told the video interviewer she bought the Big Lie and urged Mango Mussolini to keep fighting.

A family of liars.

"Don't forget coddling their Glocks and AR-15s."

You're right. I also forgot to mention "Uncle Vlad" standing behind them with outstretched arms.

"Blindsided" by a film the Trump family knew was being created.

Smart cult you got there, MAGAts.

This is too absurd to be believable, even for the Trump era. To me it sounds like they're pretending to be surprised, to draw attention to this to divert from something else.

You're jerking off over a mental picture of Ivanka talking?

A film of Ivanka changing into her Victoria's Secret nightie would be distracting.

This other stuff? Meh ~ Not so much.

From the cited article...

...Trump's team was blindsided by the development, which was initially reported by Politico.

In some of the highest ranks of the Trumpworld diaspora " including among several who testified before the Jan. 6 committee " news of the documentarian cooperating with the congressional panel (and also potentially having reams of behind-the-scenes footage of Trump's crusade to nullify the 2020 election) came as a bizarre surprise. "What the ---- is this?" a former top Trump 2020 official messaged Rolling Stone on Tuesday after seeing the Politico item.

Another former senior official on the reelection team insisted that the first time several members of the Trump campaign leadership even heard of the documentary was when Politico reported the committee had subpoenaed the Holder. A third ex-official simply said, "Terrible idea," and pleaded baffled ignorance to the doc project.

Two former senior Trump administration officials, who were still working in the administration after the Jan. 6 riot, also claimed that they each had no idea the documentary was being shot in that timeframe, reportedly intimate access to Trump, his vice president, his family members, and his White House. Stephanie Grisham, who at that time was chief of staff to First Lady Melania Trump, told Rolling Stone she wasn't aware of this documentary project either.

In other words: many of the people actually running Trump's reelection operation are now saying they somehow had zero clue that an entire documentary was being filmed largely about Trump and his reelection campaign. And now the fruits of that doc are being mined for evidence by the congressional committee investigating Trump and his multi-pronged efforts to shred the American democratic order....

Rachael Maddow will have a copy of this film in a nano-second.

If evidentiary, count on it occupying the media for weeks. Remember: "If it bleeds, it leads."

This film is going to be dissected and biopsied cell by cell by the forensics experts at MSNBC. They're hot on the trail ~ (or after Trumps tail) ~ 24/7. MSNBC is THE place to watch to get the truth.

@#23 ... (and also potentially having reams of behind-the-scenes footage of Trump's crusade to nullify the 2020 election) ...

The Jan 6 Committee said that it was delaying further public hearings because of a significant amount of new evidence that it had recently been given.

Perhaps the "behind-the-scenes footage" is part of that significant amount of new evidence?

There is no lie that is too absurd for MAGATS to swallow. Sounds more like those claiming they didn't know tried to cover up the existence of the footage from investigators.

Maybe they were to just too busy watching FoxProp and planning the overthrow of democracy to notice the guy with the camera following them around.

This new development has given me food for thought.

Pending the investigation of filming all of Trump's travels and exploits, I wonder if Vladimir Putin has grounds for a Breach of Contract.

Until now, I've never really believed Trump's pee-pee tape exists.

At this point, I expect Trump to be "blindsided" by its release any day now.

Trump really does believe that he is, or ought to be, God.

Bragging for the camera, the man may have confessed to something.

Trump's, um, attention to detail:

Guarantee that glass of water got more attention than the average PDB.

In order to be blindsided one must first be able to see.

"Ivanka Trump, the elder daughter of former President Donald J. Trump, told a documentary film crew in the middle of December 2020 that her father should "continue to fight until every legal remedy is exhausted" because people were questioning "the sanctity of our elections."

"Ivanka Trump tells the truth when she's under oath to the 1/6 committee: admitting Donald lost - but lies when she's not under oath in a documentary: urging they "continue to fight until every legal remedy is exhausted."
