This guy thinks he's a dreamboat. He was the healthiest president ever elected, according to that crazy Manhattan doctor who had his office raided to confiscate Trump's health records before the public found out he had a rare hand-shrinking disease.

That would be a “war crime,” Mr. Esper shot back.

Thanks for letting the voters know 1.5 years after the election, Mr. Esper, and only putting it in a book for sale. How patriotic of you. I'm glad you warned the protestors that the president was hoping to have them shot. How patriotic of you. Sorry, that's my 3am take. :lol: :shifty:

All of the violence, venality and corruption is on full view in these hearings, but the undertone coming from many people is that they dodged a bullet while we all know that the bullets are still being fired.

Entertaining story from Trump's niece. I've been watching/listening to her podcast which is pretty good. I don't listen to James Carville's one, I can't stand him. :lol: https://www.youtube.com/c/Politicon

Jan. 6 committee may make criminal referral on witness tampering -Cheney

WASHINGTON, June 30 (Reuters) - The congressional panel investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, U.S. Capitol attack may make a criminal referral to the Justice Department recommending that anybody who tried to influence testimony be prosecuted, Representative Liz Cheney said in an interview broadcast on Thursday.

The witness-tampering issue emerged during the Jan. 6 select committee's sixth hearing on Tuesday, when Cheney revealed that some witnesses reported receiving veiled threats from allies of former President Donald Trump to do "the right thing."

The justice dept should pounce on this immediately, referral or not. And expedite the prosecution, not investigate for 2 years first. If I tampered with a witness in a case against me, they'd kick my door in at 5 am and drag me out in my underwear.

It's so often other people he's co-opted to take the fallout for him.

Prosecute the fall guys. I know they aren't dragging Trump out off of his gold toilet, but the patsies are still culpable for their own actions. If they're getting arrested left and right, maybe eventually he'll have fewer people willing to go to bat for him. I think now the hearings are starting to help, just a little, at changing people's minds. That last one was huge. The plate throwing and lunging at the wheel aren't nearly as important as the "take down the mags and let the armed people in", but they do grab the attention anyways.
