Thursday, June 23, 2022

"The Trump White House aides John McEntee, Cassidy Hutchinson, and Eric Herschmann mapped out how the GOP House lawmakers " most of whom have been subpoenaed by the select committee " asked for legal cover from prosecution in a montage of clips the House select committee investigating the riot played during its fifth public hearing.

The list of identified members may grow. Committee staff posted an image of an email Brooks sent administration officials, the subject being "Pardons."

In it, Brooks says he's writing on behalf of Gaetz and urges Trump to "give general (all purpose) pardons to the following groups of people: Every Congressman and Senator who voted to reject the electoral college vote submissions of Arizona and Pennsylvania."

This turns out to be a great Keystone Kops movie plot!

Wonder if Sean Penn will play Trump in the movie?

The DOJ planted Trumps face in the evidence that there was no evidence of fraud that could possibly change the election, and he still is doing the Big Lie Gig all over the country.

From Trump's point of view, it's probably better for his fascist movement if these Congressman and Sentaors become martyrs.

We all get why Gaetz would ask for a lifetime pardon, but why would MTG need a pardon? Inquiring minds want to know.

#4 That's what I was wondering. Did she give one of those pre-1/6 Capitol tours?

I didn't realize a capitol tour is controversial. When I went to DC in 2014 I got a tour that was set up by my rep.

Are y'all aware that Capitol police looked into the tour that Rep Loudermilk gave and cleared him of any wrongdoing?

Keep going with that blue anon stuff.

There were no tours conducted during the pandemic. That's why the ones right before January 6 stood out to Congress members who observed them:

US Capitol resumes limited tours 2 years after pandemic began
Reservations must be made through a congressional member's office.

Lots of innocent people ask for blanket pardons all the time.

MTG assumed office January 3, 2021, and three days later she needed a pardon?

That's how long it took her to go from a nobody to a world class public moron.

Nowadays it is far easier to become notable for doing something stupid that it is for doing something smart.

The denials of these pardon-seekers will sound much more believable under oath, in front of cameras and the 1/6 committee. Now, who will go first?

I have a question about this headline.

Is requesting a pardon different than inquiring about a pardon?

If I was a prosecutor, I think I'd want to close all those exit ramps if someone claimed an inquiry is different than a request.

I know that doesn't change the intent, but I'd think a "request" would be in a more formal format. Otherwise, a phone call to a staffer is just a fishing expedition.

I don't even know if requesting or inquiring about a pardon who be admissible in court (I heard it on a TV show lol).

Regardless, the hearings aren't a trial, they are a fact finding mission. And the fact those people requested, inquired, etc. about a pardon is fact worthy in that they were worried about their involvement. Otherwise, why do it?

Of course the answer being thrown out there - and this was predictable - is that the Dems and the DOJ would be playing dirty pool and they would never get a fair shake so a pardon was their counter to such.

Exactly. SET UP BY YOUR REP.

So why did this Congressman deny it initially?

That was his person on video, right? LOL
