Q. Please. If Michael Flynn accepts the pardon (do you accept or does it just happen?) he is admitting he is guilty and may never plead the fifth again. Can he be brought to trial on other charges and be made to testify about what he was pardoned for?

by Anonymousreply 4811/27/2020

Or against Trump ^^^

by Anonymousreply 4911/27/2020

R48, as far as I know, you are correct. Flynn likely knows the conditions of accepting a pardon, but that Arizona sheriff (name forgotten and I’m not looking it up) only learned that accepting Trump’s pardon involved an admission of guilt after the fact. During an interview with Ari Melber, actually. Great TV.

But I digress. Pardons imply guilt and strip 5th amendment rights related to the charges/convictions pardoned, as I’ve learned in this 4+ years long civics lesson from hell that is the Trump administration.

by Anonymousreply 5011/27/2020

I guess to further answer your question, he could be brought to testify against Trump, and couldn’t plead the fifth if he were asked to testify that Trump asked him to do something illegal.

The White House liaison to the DoJ has been banned from its building. I did not make that up.

[bold]Trump aide banned from Justice after trying to get case info[/bold]

WASHINGTON (AP) — The official serving as President Donald Trump’s eyes and ears at the Justice Department has been banned from the building after trying to pressure staffers to give up sensitive information about election fraud and other matters she could relay to the White House, three people familiar with the matter tell The Associated Press.

Heidi Stirrup, an ally of top Trump adviser Stephen Miller, was quietly installed at the Justice Department as a White House liaison a few months ago. She was told within the last two weeks to vacate the building after top Justice officials learned of her efforts to collect insider information about ongoing cases and the department’s work on election fraud, the people said.

Stirrup is accused of approaching staffers in the department demanding they give her information about investigations, including election fraud matters, the people said. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to publicly discuss the matter.

. . .

Stirrup had also extended job offers to political allies for positions at some of the highest levels of the Justice Department without consulting any senior department officials or the White House counsel’s office and also attempted to interfere in the hiring process for career staffers, a violation of the government’s human resources policies, one of the people said.

R109 and others. It's very tricky for Biden. Keep in mind, it's the senate who approves Biden's selection. A Senate that will more than likely have a Republican majority. These assholes aren't gonna want Biden's AG to go after Trump, (as it means also going after them and their complicity), so every single Republican MotherFucker will be asking Biden's candidate about it, and ready to vote "no" at the slightest hint. Think of Kamala Harris's brilliant, incisive grilling of Jeff Sessions, but sort of in reverse. So Biden can't appoint someone who appears too gung-ho. Highly qualified people like Doug Jones and Sally Yates might be ruled out as Biden needs to choose someone who'll be approved by hypocritical Repugs.

However, it might end up being Merrick Garland.

Schumer would still need 50 votes to get anything passed. He could bring up every Biden-favored piece of legislation imaginable, but he’d still need at least two Republicans to cross over.

Even the “moderates” would be so pissed at Harris’ maneuver, depriving them of a governing majority, that I doubt he’d even get One Republican Vote.

by Anonymousreply 19401/02/2021

R194, I think he last posted in November. My read on FCI--and this is just a guess--is that he was originally a mainstream Republican. All of his gossip came from the Republican side: the horrible internal polling, the potential for Nikki Haley to replace Pence, all that sort of thing. As a result, he may not have any ties to the incoming administration. Obviously, he did not seem connected to the sedition wing (Cruz, Johnson, Graham, etc) of the Republican party, either. Again, it's all just a guess, but, if so, it might explain why he's gone silent.

Of course that goes down a conspiracy theory rabbit hole, but the sad thing is it actually wouldn't surprise me.

People are also saying that there is allegedly some evidence that the plane Melania and Pence uses is scheduled for a flight on 1/19... and people are saying they think Orange and his family are going to run off to Scotland the night before the inauguration.

Agree with everything above about Pence being a pusillanimous wimp. Still, I wonder if Mike already has the signed paperwork necessary to initiate the 25th Amendment.

To have legal effect Pence must [italic] deliver [/italic] it to Pelosi and Grassley. Given the rabid base, and Pence being Pence, he likely doesn’t want to do that unless forced.

Nevertheless, knowing that Pence holds the jailer’s keys might be what’s being used to keep tRump on a short leash.

It might also explain why Mike and Donnie have not spoken in the last 36 hours; why Pence’s chief of staff has been barred from the WH; and why Pence is avoiding Pelosi and Schumer’s calls.

R278 Yes and more. I am currently cooperating with law enforcement about a matter I was told about so I don’t know what all I can share. A friend shared something on Twitter and was contacted by law enforcement.

What has come out some and what will come out is how close staff and representatives were almost face to face with this well armed, trained domestic terror group. What I shared previously here is how it appeared some Capitol police had an arrangement that people would not get hurt but they were free to storm offices and chambers of Congress. 3 people I know saw the terrorists as they were fleeing.

Was it just Capitol police who let terrorists know where the heavily fortified and very hard to find Speaker’s office (among others) was? Or was it someone in Congress? hmmmm I will let you wonder what my friends think about the latter. Remember, I cannot share some things (hint hint).

I am beside myself in anger with all of you. DL has done such a great job providing updates on this event. Thank you all.

They just said on NBC News that Trump, Don Jr., Giuliani, etc. will not face charges of insurrection for riling up the crowd before the riot. I'm assuming this is only because this is still Dump's Justice Department and not a final deal, right? In other words, once Biden is sworn in, his Justice Department could then decide to bring charges, correct? It galls me to think they will not face any legal consequences for this.

Offsite Link
by Anonymousreply 30701/13/2021

When Donald Trump on Wednesday became the first president ever impeached twice, he did so as a leader increasingly isolated, sullen and vengeful.

With less than seven days remaining in his presidency, Trump’s inner circle is shrinking, offices in his White House are emptying, and the president is lashing out at some of those who remain. He is angry that his allies have not mounted a more forceful defense of his incitement of the mob that stormed the Capitol last week, advisers and associates said.

Though Trump has been exceptionally furious with Vice President Pence, his relationship with lawyer Rudolph W. Giuliani, one of his most steadfast defenders, is also fracturing, according to people with knowledge of the dynamics between the men.

Trump has instructed aides not to pay Giuliani’s legal fees, two officials said, and has demanded that he personally approve any reimbursements for the expenses Giuliani incurred while traveling on the president’s behalf to challenge election results in key states. They said Trump has privately expressed concern with some of Giuliani’s moves and did not appreciate a demand from Giuliani for $20,000 a day in fees for his work attempting to overturn the election.

by Anonymousreply 30801/13/2021

As he watched impeachment quickly gain steam, Trump was upset generally that virtually nobody is defending him — including press secretary Kayleigh McEnany, senior adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner, economic adviser Larry Kudlow, national security adviser Robert C. O’Brien and Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, according to a senior administration official.

“The president is pretty wound up,” said the senior administration official, who, like some others interviewed, spoke on the condition of anonymity to be candid. “No one is out there.”

One of Trump’s few confidants these days is Sen. Lindsey O. Graham (R-S.C.), who broke with the president last week over attempts to overturn the election only to be welcomed back in the president’s good graces a couple of days later. Graham traveled to Texas on Tuesday in what was Trump’s last scheduled presidential trip, spending hours with Trump aboard Air Force One talking about impeachment and planning how Trump should spend his final days in office.

by Anonymousreply 30901/13/2021

“The president has come to grips with it’s over,” Graham said, referring to the election. “That’s tough. He thinks he was cheated, but nothing’s going to change that.”

The president as pariah: Trump faces a torrent of retribution for his role in the Capitol siege Trump asked Graham to lobby fellow senators to acquit him in his eventual impeachment trial, which Graham did from Air Force One as he worked through a list of colleagues to phone. A few senators called Trump aboard the presidential aircraft on Tuesday to notify him of their intent to acquit. During the flight home, Graham said, he tried to calm Trump after Rep. Liz Cheney (Wyo.), the No. 3 House GOP leader, announced she would vote to impeach.

“I just told him, ‘Listen, Mr. President, there are some people out there who were upset before and are upset now, but I assure you, most Republicans believe impeachment is bad for the country and not necessary and it would do damage to the institution of the presidency itself,” Graham recalled. He said he told Trump, “The people who are calling on impeachment are not representative of the [Republican] conferences.”

Trump told reporters Tuesday that the drive toward impeachment was causing “tremendous anger” and posed a “tremendous danger to our country.”

by Anonymousreply 31001/13/2021

Although he has shown flashes of anger over his impeachment — and is livid with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) for leaving open the possibility that he might vote to convict — Trump privately has told advisers that he does not believe he will be removed from office before his term expires Jan. 20, according to people familiar with the conversations.

Many of the president’s advisers and outside associates share that mind-set. As one put it, “Whoop-de-do.”

McConnell effectively guaranteed that outcome Wednesday, releasing a schedule after the House impeachment vote that would push a trial until after President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration.

Trump has been more concerned with other actions that could have serious consequences for his post-presidential life, according to people familiar with the president’s concerns. The developments include Twitter and other social media companies suspending his accounts, the PGA of America canceling a golf tournament at one of his properties, and Deutsche Bank announcing it would no longer finance his developments.

Trump carried on with various activities Wednesday. As the House debated his impeachment, Trump issued a statement calling on his supporters to stand down.

“In light of reports of more demonstrations, I urge that there must be NO violence, NO lawbreaking and NO vandalism of any kind,” the statement said. “That is not what I stand for, and it is not what America stands for. I call on ALL Americans to help ease tensions and calm tempers. Thank You.”

Minutes after the House voted to impeach him for a second time, Trump held a private ceremony in the Oval Office to award the National Medal of Arts to country singer Toby Keith, a senior administration official said.

The White House released a video Wednesday evening featuring Trump seated behind the Resolute desk in the Oval Office pleading with supporters not to engage in further violence. “Violence and vandalism have absolutely no place in our country and no place in our movement,” he said.

Funny, that long list of pardons, and conspicuously missing are his kids, Jared, Giuliani and himself. That means there are secret pardons that havent been publicly released. Until someone gets charged, we wont know if they are pardoned. The bright side ? Trump did not resign...that means he may have pardoned himself...and that will be challenged and lose in court. Trump will remain in the spotlight one way or another.

No, a pardon doesn't exist unless and until it's made part of the public record.

[quote]Presidential grants are a matter of public record, so immediately after Presidential action, the name of each person granted a pardon or commutation, along with the district they were convicted, year of sentencing, offense, and the date the President granted their request is publicly listed on the Office of the Pardon Attorney website. This information may also be posted on The White House website and included in press releases issued by the Department or The White House.

r336 - Indeed, FCI...

by Anonymousreply 33801/20/2021

Incorrect, R335.

Pocket Pardons exist.

This came up in 2017.

[quote]In general, pardons are vetted by the Office of the Pardon Attorney in the Justice Department. But the regulations governing that process don’t interfere with or supersede the president’s constitutional authority on this issue, which mentions nothing about needing to notify the public of a pardon.

[quote]If a recipient of a presidential pardon were indicted, the pardon would be revealed during the proceedings. The way a pardon could stay under the radar is if Trump pardons someone before they’ve been charged with a crime. In that case, that person could have a presidential pardon in their pocket to use if they ever do get charged with a crime, but if they aren’t, the public wouldn’t necessarily ever know.

[quote]“Long-term secrecy is not the danger because if authorities ever attempt to file charges or pass a sentence, the pardon would come to light,” Illinois Rep. Raja Krishnamoorthi, who introduced the bill to promote transparency in pardons, told TIME in a statement. “The danger we’re facing is that President Trump could sabotage the Special Counsel’s investigation through pardoning his own aides and family members in secret before charges are filed. These pardons could fundamentally derail Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation because key witnesses could feel no obligation to speak to investigators due to the knowledge that President Trump had already shielded them from prosecution.”

The Biden Justice Department should announce piddling little minor charges against every one of his family members and every associate he's ever said more than five words to tomorrow and see what shakes out.

A pocket pardon would have to be recorded SOMEWHERE officially. Otherwise anyone could pull a piece of paper out of their pocket and claim they’ve been pardoned.

Trump's fate in The Senate is fluid.

At first it looked like he might be convicted.

Then it was looking like he might be acquited.

Now it is unclear again...

R400, the Repugs got what they wanted again. They were able to block the Democrats from moving forward just long enough for people to lose interest. So many Americans are of the type that are easily distracted by shiny objects. The only thing that I can see make it front and center again and, maybe, lead to enough Repugs voting to convict is the Orange Shitstain testifying himself.

by Anonymousreply 40101/26/2021

The delay was a compromise with both The Republicans and Biden to get other business done.

This trial will be much different than last time. The evidence is stark. There will be witnesses (this is a big deal) and the spectre of a split in the GOP weighs heavy...

Also Trump's legal team may turf out in effectiveness. It isn't even clear who they all are?

Rand Paul's objection to the trial on "constitutionality" was defeated 55-45.

Only 5 GOP accept the trial as constitutional - Collins, Murkowski, Sasse, Romney and Toomey. McTurtle voted with the GOP majority. This tells you everything you need to know about the outcome of the trial itself.

That was partially a cynical cover vote. It is possible the final vote on conviction will be different.

Remember, these people were THERE and the TARGETS of this attack.

The prosecution is going to play clips of that rally and then of the attack along with the reluctance of orange to stop it or even send in the national guard to end it.

The jury are the victims of this. The best thing the prosecution can do is make them relive it.

The Senate trial isn't the last opportunity to hold Trump to account, and if the Republicans once again choose to let him off the hook that's not exactly going to be a shock. But it is important to document Trump's crimes, who stood up to him and who enabled him, and enter them into the official government record.

The court system is still functioning and that’s where anyone should bring their charges. Voting to remove someone from office who is no longer in office or barring a 74 year old from running for office in the future is not holding someone accountable. This is just a show trial.

You still don't get it, do you r410 ? Its to set an example so the next Trump thinks twice. The problem is that the GOP enabled so much corruption and illegality that its destined to become the norm. Nothing will change unless they hold those in the GOP who enabled him responsible.

Hi FCI! If you're still out there, please bring us some updates. Thank you.

Here's some thoughts on the Senate Trump hearing.

1. The evidence will be there. But most GOP Senators will NOT convict. And it's not because of the criminal evidence GOP Senators have on Trump (insurrection). But because of the criminal evidence Trump has on GOP (Russian/NRA campaign contributions, Pandemic insider trading).

2. Trump will again hold an acquittal presser. But this time NY State will press charges on Trump's financials. And just like Al Capone, Trump too will go down over illicit loot.

3. But unlike Capone, Trump will rat out the GOP. As those GOP rats are almost as complicit as Trump in their crimes. And Trump the snake will not slither off into his cage alone.

R413 Not a lot of info right now. There’s quite a bit of PTSD plus ongoing criminal investigations where some of my friends are witnesses. There’s so much anger on the Dem side.

I’m not sure wtf is going on with republicans. Well, I do. They’ve created an absolute monster. They are revealing themselves as monsters, too. There are no moderate republicans. Let’s get that cleared up. There has been no reflection amongst republicans about 1/6. They’ve resorted to their usual gaslighting to try to move us off the subject. We’ve seen the absolute collapse of a political party right before our eyes. I’ve heard rumblings some non-elected republicans will leave the party for independence hoping enough do so to where the elected ones will, I dunno, be less seditious? How could anybody trust current republicans again?

I’m not hopeful about the Senate. Maybe, maybe, if donors and corps threaten to stop giving money they might get 17 to convict. That sentence is a damning indictment on the gop if there ever was one.

I’m just flipping ecstatic we have Dem control and Biden is off to a great start. I feel light as a feather right now.

Thank you FCI for replying so quickly.

As I said in R413 unfortunately most GOP Senators will NOT convict Trump. Because of the criminal evidence TRUMP has on the GOP (Pandemic insider trading). As the GOP Congress HATES Trump the GOP is saving its own assets. As the GOP enables the Trump monster to do so.

But the good news is that NY State will nail Trump for financial fraud. While that snake in the grass Trump will bite the GOP rat in the asp.

I'm just glad you are so happy about the Dems being in charge and taking care of business. And it will even be better as more Americans turn away from Trump. Especially with Biden getting so much work done.

Keilar: GOP's 20 reasons against impeachment don't hold up

Offsite Link
by Anonymousreply 42201/27/2021

You know we have been thrown off balance for more than 5 yrs. Maybe 12 years, thinking that just because t3ehy call themselves "Republicans" They still adhere and embrace the traditions of a national political party in America. We have made a lot of assumptions and periodically, over the past four years in particular, with the ascendance of Trump, we keep asking "When will the Republicans do this or that or reject this or that?" And they never do. The media does it most of all? They turn up the tensions breathlessly wishing, hoping expecting McConnell or McCarthy or Ryan or WTF ever to "wake up." Long ago I determined that the goal was a corporate police state kind of arrangement. I felt this way ever since Reagan. So now, when we are still in the fight of our lives with the Neo fascists and White Nationalists still posing an existential threat, we are still expecting the Republicans to do the right thing. And out of all the Republicans in Congress, and all the Republicans in the state s, no one or very few have. Maybe 25% if that. So maybe we ought to finally wake up, admit the Republican Party is run by a bunch of extremists and we need to RICO them, investigate them and decertify the RNC. These people want to overthrow our government. Our laws our Constitution mean nothing to them. They aren't that damned scared of Trump! The Media ought to stop giving them a pass. They agree with him. They don't like him. He is coarse and he is a buffoon, but they're all going in the same direction. Ben Sasse, Mitt Romney and the rest of the dissenters need to stop being Accommodationists. Either dissent or don't. . They don't like what they see, then get busy. Let's start kicking some asses. By the way. Where is FCI? Have we heard from him since the election and all this insurrection stuff?

FCI, is there any gossip on the Hill about WTF is going on with McCarthy visiting Mar A Lago and Trump and Melania opening their offices, etc. Did the Republicans cut a deal with him? He was threatening to start a third party. The paperwork has already been filed in Texas and I think a couple other states. That would kill the Republicans. So maybe they cut a deal, not to vote against him, and to keep working with him so he doesn't turn on them. But he will eventually anyway. He will be backing extremist candidates to primary his "enemies" in the GOP. It's extremely clear to me they're all in it together. If Biden believes he can just show the American people a good job, and help them, and restart the economy and get COVID under control and it will win people over, he is delusional. He doesn't get what's going on. They are attempting a White nationalist take over. Putin is the orchestrator, he's behind it all over the world and he is bitter, angry and pissed off right now. Dangerous. So we are not in the clear and we have to purge them all and get tough. I don't see tough right now. Merrick Garland isn't tough and Christopher Wray is not someone I trust.

The Republicans are never going to say "You know what, we made a terrible mistake propping up Trump, he's psycho and a massive crook besides, let's cut him loose now." So let all the Senate Republicans go on record acquitting him on his second impeachment, this time on a charge of something that was documented on multiple live video streams. Let them officially declare themselves the party of psychotic conspiracy theories, genocide, sedition, and terrorism. See how that goes down with the corporations and billionaire donor class.

R430, FCI I totally agree with you about Putin telling Trump to fight. Also aware of the Bitcoin transactions placing more than $500K in the accounts of some of the extremist ringleaders. So, Maybe Putty tells Donnie to fight, while at the same time there's money being directed to pay some of the leaders. As I understood it, the state Republican parties "donors" were the fronts, but there was dark money financing Oath keepers and Proud Boys, and some of the infiltrators inciting violence and vandalism last summer were paid. And these guys are so dedicated to their extremists views they're for sale cheap. I've read a lot about the 60's and 70's and know that a lot of extremists were paid.

Someone, I don't remember who, brought up an interesting scenario that could happen re: the Impeachment Trial.

If some of the terrorists testify that they acted in the manner they did because they were told by say Cruz or Hawley, or if they were in any of those meetings, the DC Police could use that testimony to arrest those Senators for their participation.

That would effectively make it so that they can't be on the jury as well.

They were aware that some of the participants were planning to bring firearms and other weapons and that there was strong potential for violence and that Congress was the target.

Armed with this information, Cheeto's Secretary of Defense, Christpher Miller, issued a memo disarming the DC National Guard. The memo stated that the National Guard was not to arrest, touch, or search any of the Protestors. It also stated that they could not have weapons, body armor, or helmets and they were not allowed to share their resources with the Capitol Police.

Things are dire here. I’ve lost power with very low water pressure. We have a boil water advisory. 1.4 million have been out of power since Sunday with 400,000 with power on and off. This is freaking ridiculous. I have power for now but the ones who have power are part of the rolling blackouts. Heads on pikes!

Update: Things are returning back to normal in SE Texas. For most people, this was hellish. 99% over people I know lost their power for an extended amount of time. My parents lost their power for over 36 hours. The temp in their house got to 45 degrees. Grocery stores look like disaster zones. There is hardly anything left edible. I’d say 40% of the people I know had their pipes burst. 100% are under a boil water notice. Add to this the vehicle damage, gas shortage, low or no water this doesn’t feel like a first world country. The anger is real. This Abbott blaming a policy that is not even law and Cruz fleeing across the border only add to the anger.

TX is turning Blue. All recent statewide races are getting closer with each cycle. CancunCruz would not win again in ‘24 with a good opponent. Abbott is in trouble with his reelection. 1/6 changed some minds and I know plenty of republican voters who like what President Biden is doing even if they don’t agree with some of it. One of my old republican staffer friends said, “Damn Biden ain’t playin’” while adding Biden really hit the ground running and his WH is being run very efficiently.

Cruz looks genuinely freaked out so he must’ve heard from some of his hard core donors/supporters that they are out. I’ve never seen him look so chastened.

Senate Hearing on Law Enforcement's Response to Capitol Attack; Sen. Ted "Cancun" Cruz's Hypocrisy

I am still troubled by the 2020 election. All those Senate races where the Dem lead all year in every poll, usually by double digits, only to end up losing, usually close to or in double digits? The Former getting so many votes when all the new/early votes were so strong for Dems?

The extreme reaction by republicans by losing the presidency is revealing and telling. “We cheated yet they still won by a lot. We cheated. They won. So, they must have cheated. They had to have cheated. We cheated big. It really was stolen.”

by Anonymousreply 54702/23/2021

FCI, is anyone in Washington talking about that? Is anything being looked into?

by Anonymousreply 54802/23/2021

It is being talked about but republicans have taken “it’s stolen” to such an extreme what would it look like if Dems did the same? You see what the republicans did there, right? The presidential polls were far, far more accurate than any senate poll.

I knew back in my Capitol days things were headed to a very bad place. I never realized it would be so terrible so quickly. The good news? We are finally in the game. We know exactly what we are dealing with now. We are fighting back on all fronts. We really need to get to Sinema, Manchin and maybe King. King may end up being a bit of a pain in our sides as well (I finally received some Senate scoop!). We’ll know how things will play out in the Senate within 6 weeks or less. We’ll see exactly where Sinema, Manchin and perhaps King are willing/not willing to do. I don’t understand how they think we can compromise with republicans after all the shit they pulled on us in that very Senate and after 1/6. We must expand out majority in the Senate in ‘22.

I think most people agree that polling needs a major overall. Some of the polls were so ludicrous before the election. South Carolina is a good example. The notion that Harrison was ever ahead of Graham or even close is ridiculous. The question is open on whether the polling companies were just guilty of malpractice or if they did it intentionally

by Anonymousreply 55602/23/2021

R556, bullshit. The Graham, Tillis, McConnell, and Collins results were complete bullshit.

FCI, I know that the Repugs trumpeting their delusional crap about the stolen presidential election, etc. has muddied the waters but it seems like there was real cheating in those Senate races. Factual cheating with numbers and everything, unlike the Repug claims. So, couldn't there be legitimate investigations in Russian hacking, etc. I think the Repugs are very, very lucky that Covid is center stage right now. Hopefully once that is more under control, the real investigations into everything can begin. The real problem is going to be that there are about a million Repugs across the country that need to be investigated for numerous crimes. The media, unfortunately, is going to have to stop their bothsideristic bullshit for five minutes or nothing will ever come to light because they'll allow every Repug liar to spew their muddying garbage endlessly in the name of "fairness" even when the Democrats have facts and they have nothing but lies.

by Anonymousreply 55702/23/2021

I was more concerned about the Ernst, Collins, Tillis (a few more that I can’t think of right now) polls. Graham and McConnell did not surprise me at all.

The presidential polls were also way off in OH, IA, FL and others. I don’t think the polls were that off again. But those Senate polls were soooooo off and broke the gop way in almost every one. It was highly improbable. Some of it can be attributed to republican voters deciding to split the ticket in the prez race and Congress, wanting divided govt. Still, it doesn’t explain the facts about how off the polls were and almost all skewed in the republicans favor.

Slightly OT. The Congressional investigation into 1/6 is confirming just how organized were the militaristic shock troops at the front of the insurrection: grappling hooks, gas, diversionary pipe bombs, the whole nine yards.

I’ll bet that when/if they get to the bottom, it’ll be discovered that TRump’s dear friend, Erik Prince of Blackwater fame, had a hand in prepping the deadly, failed assault.

And Megan forgets that Biden is going after grassroots 60-70-80% Republicans.
