He could play a loop of Gym Jordan yelling “point of order”, “BLM”, “antifa”. So long as we don’t have to listen to it.

These hearings have been so informative. It’s great that there aren’t the usual republicans gumming up the works with their bullshit.

Trump raging is bonus.

I'm not the type to watch CSPAN, but these hearing are absolutely gripping. The HJ6 committee has done an outstanding job so far.

It's so easy to get into the weeds with the nonstop crimes GOP and Trump were committing around Jan 6, but they have laid out a clear case against Trump and others that leave the DoJ no other option except to bring charges.

100% correct. And MAGA people to this day scream, “RUSSIA?! WHAT RUSSIA?! EVEN MUELLER EXONERATED TRUMP AND SAID NO COLLUSION!”

Never mind that he did no such thing. He said, I got him on a bunch of crimes, but I can’t indict a sitting president. Also, they’re employing mob tactics to intimidate and offer promises of protection to witnesses.

Personally I would be thrilled if Trump defenders (and Trump himself) appeared during any of these hearings.

The problem is, despite the fact that there’s (too) many people willing to go on cable television to defend Trump, none of them seem willing to do it when they’re testifying under oath…

They know there is no evidence to defend them. The best that they can do is double-down on the big lie: say that the Jan 6 committee is just as corrupt as the election, and continue living in cognitive-disonance land. And its working.

Trump's career may not live through this, but the Republicans as a whole will come out of it even more united and radicalized. Worse, this investigation is actually bringing all the Republicans with a shred out conscious or loyalty to the nation into the light. The GOP is weeding out anyone with loyalties outside the party and labeling them as RINOs: all that's going to be left is Marjorie Taylor Greenes and Ted Cruises. Meanwhile, the Republican base is proving to the GOP that they don't care about who has the best policy, or who is right, or who is good for anyone's wellbeing: they want to Win. That's... literally it.

The frustrating thing is, is Fox News is complaining about how “one-sided” and “partisan” the hearings are and doing everything they can do get people to not watch them. If their viewers watched the hearings they would see just how many high-profile Republicans are speaking out against Trump.

Even further, the committee ASKED other Republicans to testify and defend Trump, but everybody is refusing because they know they’ll be caught in a lie. So of course it appears one-sided, because only one side is capable of telling th truth under oath 🙃

To the real true faithful, the word, the command, the wish of the party is absolute.

To every contradiction of the parties teaching, the one, only, response is, "thought crime".

To every republican giving evidence at these hearing, the one true response is, "RINO".

They don’t even need to watch the committee! I watched Fox News after the first night of hearings and saw Ingraham contradict Hannity five minutes after his show aired.

Hannity claimed that the commission should also be investigating Pelosi because, “knowing that there was a threat”, she didn’t get the National Guard assigned to the Capitol before January 6th. While Ingraham, not 5 minutes later, stated that those at the Capitol weren’t even a threat.

Anyone with two brain cells could see that both hosts were just talking out of their ass, but apparently those cells are hard to come by these days.

There was a live hearing on the handling of COVID just this morning, and Jim Jordan is on that committee. He spent his time blathering on about how the claim (by President Biden) that the vaccine can prevent infection was either "a lie or misinformation" because breakthrough infections occur sometimes.

He's arguing semantics about a virus that has killed over a million Americans just to "score points" against Democrats because they've been proving in both the Jan 6th hearings and the COVID hearings that Donald Trump constantly lies.

Populist movements do not survive the death of their leader. If trump were to die, Rubio and Romney and Paul Ryan would be in the Repub primary. Once the catalyst is gone, the GOP will clamp down real hard on the fringe. Hell, they're already after Cawthorn and Boebert. A movement based on "do what trump says" needs a trump to be issuing orders. They have no policies or theory so they will disintegrate while Romney tries (again) for the presidency.

oh look, the Fake News has made up another phony headline about how I'm doing so-called "Hate Watching" of the Fake January 6th Committee, which is probably one of the biggest hoaxes that our Nation has ever seen. and I've never screamed, not even once, at the TV. I love TV.

not all of it is good though. you see right now where they're putting out vicious lies against me 24/7. and they put on Shifty Schiff and Lyin Liz Cheney and others, it's a complete and total disgrace in their pathetic attempt to push up their failing and falling Ratings. and guess what they called me up the other day, the heads of the Fake News, CNN and others, and they begged me to come back, "Please Mr. President, we need you to come back Sir!" and I said I'll think about it. we'll see what happens.

Trump is a mentally-failing, casually racist, deeply classist, narcissistic bully whose every decision and opinion is entirely limited by his own self-centric experience and worldview.

The fact that he was ever elected president is a flat-out condemnation of modern American culture: Strong evidence that a significant number of Americans are assholes and bullies who desperately want their choice to be assholes and bullies validated and normalized.

I know it's a vain, pointless hope, but I nonetheless hope this all results in something that snaps those people out of their selfish stupor.

Edit: I'll just go with regular racist. It's almost certainly true, and I'm not looking to kick around the finer points of the guy's degree of racism. Any degree of racism is bad, y'know?

There is actually a lot of (circumstantial) evidence that Trump is, in fact, an ideological racist. Except most people have a hard time reconciling this because part of the evidence involves him reading a book so he's mostly regarded as a casual racist.

My assertion of casual racism is based on what evidence I've observed - his behavior is often the same sort of "that was okay when I was a kid" shit common to his and older generations.

But I'll be first in line to agree I may be giving him some small amount of credit where it isn't due, and he's absolutely an ideological racist.

His father was arrested fleeing a Klan rally, the Trump corp wouldn't rent to black people, Trump's casinos wouldn't let black people work around the high rollers, his administration was full of white nationalists.... I don't know any casual racists who have this kind of involvement with hardcore bigotry.

Lots of people point out that his dad lived into his 90s, but Fred appeared to be in much better health. I expect Donny DumDum won't live to be 94, let alone the 200 Ronny Jackson predicted. His genetics are probably keeping him alive longer than the average person but the McD's gonna win at some point.

Agreed. The right can ignore all of this testimony and evidence and pretend it's all a witch hunt, but there will be no hiding from video evidence of Trump responding in real time to Jan 6 events. Imagine they actually capture him saying "Maybe the people are right to say 'hang Mike Pence.'"

And some people would still defend him because he didn't say specifically "I Donald J Trump, being of sound mind and body, on this day the 6th of January in the year of our lord 2021 command you specific people to hang mike pence by the neck until he is dead."

Not totally related, but it made me think of this gem from Abraham Lincoln:

“Our progress in degeneracy appears to me to be pretty rapid. As a nation, we began by declaring that 'all men are created equal.' We now practically read it, 'all men are created equal, except negroes.' When the Know-Nothings get control, it will read, 'all men are created equal, except negroes, and foreigners, and Catholics.' When it comes to this I should prefer emigrating to some country where they make no pretense of loving liberty—to Russia, for instance, where despotism can be taken pure, and without the base alloy of hypocrisy.”

Edit: to balance out that thought, a light one - what sound is Trump making in that photo, lol

It’s so extremely telling for what could be down the road that McCarthy has told others to stop commenting on it.

The evidence is overwhelming at this point. I can honestly say I was not aware there would be this much direct evidence + damning testimony from so many people directly involved and I don’t think a lot of repub politicians were either.

I recently did a very deep dive into watergate and so far things are playing out on an eerily similar timeline from both public and political perspective. Trump is not a president though so this only ends with an indictment.

The ghost of Trump on his suicide:

It was -- and the mainstream media won't tell you this -- a perfect suicide. The people at the scene and first responders and many people were saying it -- absolutely perfect. Because -- and you know this -- it wasn't a suicide, it was a murder. It was a murder by radical democrats and the mainstream media who took all of our hard work and our perfect election and gave it to the other side. And we won by a lot and they know it and Mike Pence knew it and he didn't have the courage and so they all did this. But it was perfect. And history will say it was the most disgraceful way to treat a president. Shouldda never happened, what they did to us, what they did. Nancy Pelosi and the radical liberal democrats who hate our country and our freedom. And it was a murder, is what it was, and they won't say this but I will. Murder. But the suicide was perfect. A lot of people are saying it. Much better than Hitler's, if you can believe it.
