Brilliant.

Ron Johnson gets caught out. He appears to be sh.tting himself. Nice to see him being called out for faking a phone call

I don’t think it is ever likely that Trump will ever see the inside of a jail but I’m hoping Johnson does. I love his story that he didn’t know what the package was or where it was from but somehow was still instrumental in trying to get it into the hands of the Vice President of the United a states Of America on January 6th 2021 a few minutes before an insurrection. I wonder if there were any wires coming out the package.

It's an "interesting" defence.

"Yes I had the kilo of coke and yes I tried to sell it to the undercover cop but he didn't want to buy it so it is a non-story and we should all just move on. Also would you like to buy some cocaine?".
This place is not a place of honor, no highly esteemed deed is commemorated here, nothing valued is here.
What is here was dangerous and repulsive to us.
This place is best shunned and left uninhabited.

There was so much stuff yesterday that it is hard to find a good summary but this 9 minute video does the job. Everyone should watch the whole thing but if you are pressed for time just watch from 7:49 which is sad, horrifying and infuriating.

An extra clip and he’s sweating more and even more unconvincing than he was the first one. He practically blames the Spanish work experience student if you know what I mean. “Somebody from the White House - first day on the job”

So the person used to work for Johnson, then left to work for the Trump White House, then went back to work for Johnson on 6th January! They then did the jiggery pokery with the delivery to Pence which Johnson insists (chinny reckon) he knew nothing about and has no curiosity finding out.

Not at all suspicious.

Is it just me who is following this or are other people still interested? I don’t want to keep bumping the thread if it’s annoying people.

Please keep 'em coming.

Not commenting because it's all so pointless. America is f.cked, they're not going to bring anyone to justice except the low-level rioters.

Twitter is afire as to mystery witness.

I’ve made multiple guesses and will delete the incorrect ones so I can claim prescience.

Especially if it’s Ali Alexander

It looks like the witness is the Pardon Lady which means all my guesses were wrong. Curses.

Not good for Mark Meadows. He was allegedly seen burning or shredding papers.

There’s just so much stuff today that I am in shock. When the stuff about his hand going for the Secret Service agent’s throat came out I gasped so loud that someone came into the room to see what was wrong.

I've not being paying any attention really. But I get the impression trump was definitely trying to (encourage others to) do a proper coup?

Today was the first time I’ve heard that he wanted to go to the Capitol and was really upset with his protection detail that they wouldn’t take him there. He said he was going to, IIRC, then we* mocked him for not going, but it seems like he actually wanted to. How much worse would it have been if he’d done that? USA was close to becoming a dictatorship.

Yeah. And it’s the first time we heard about him knowing there were people with AR15s and glocks there who he wanted to let past the metal detectors because he said they weren’t there to hurt him.
