    What’s Funny About Trump’s Plan to Overturn the Election? Ask Bill Barr.

    BY DAHLIA LITHWICK

    “It’s so strange because what Barr was describing is neither “silly” nor “bullshit” nor “nonsense.”
    He is instead describing a claim about election fraud that was being weaponized to thwart the orderly transfer of power. Barr waited to let us all know in part because this was all a bit of a joke, until after he was subpoenaed to testify before the committee.”

    Sherillyn Ifill:
    “Barr chuckling & distancing himself from Trump’s post-election “detachment from reality,” is really quite chilling. B/c Barr encouraged & abetted Trump’s obsession w/nonexistent voter fraud for months before the election. “

      Here’s Barr in Sept 2020:
      WAPO: Barr claims a man collected 1,700 ballots and filled them out as he pleased. Prosecutors say that’s not what happened.

    Message from Vice Chair Liz Cheney about Thursday’s Hearing:

    “Yesterday the Select Committee’s Hearings
    showed all Americans that President Trump’s claims of a stolen 2020 election were,
    to use Attorney General Barr’s words,
    “complete nonsense”.
    We heard this from Donald Trump’s own campaign experts,
    his own campaign lawyers,
    his own campaign manager,
    his Attorney General,
    and others Donald Trump appointed to leadership positions in the U.S. Department of Justice.
    President Trump’s advisors knew what he was saying was false,
    and they told him so, directly and repeatedly.
    The Testimony from our first two hearings is available on the Select Committee’s website,
    so all Americans can easily view it.
    In our next hearing on Thursday ,
    The Select Committee will examine President Trump’s relentless effort on January 6th
    and in the days before hand –
    to pressure Vice President Pence to refuse to count lawful electoral votes.
    As a federal judge has indicated, this likely violated two federal criminal statutes.
    President Trump had no factual basis for what he was doing
    and he had been told it was illegal.
    Despite this,
    President Trump plotted with a lawyer named John Eastman and others
    to overturn the outcome of the election on January 6th.
    To give you a sense of the gravity of these issues, here is a clip of one of President Trump’s own White House lawyers, Eric Herschman, who talked to Mr. Eastman the day after January 6th.”

    “The numbers tell you the winner and the loser. For the most part, the numbers don’t lie. But if something doesn’t add up with the numbers, you go to court to get resolution, and that’s the end of the line. We accept those results. That’s what it means to respect the rule of law. That’s what it means to seek elective office in our democracy.”
    (Bennie Thompson, Chair, Jan 6 Select Committee Hearing #2)

  10. June 15, 2022 at 2:53 pm

    Echoing the words of one of Doom’s White House lawyers, Eric Herschman,
    Laurence Tribe said that Trump needs:

    Remarks by Vice President Harris Before Roundtable to Discuss Roe V. Wade

    JUNE 14, 2022

    “But I do believe that we should prepare for the right to privacy to be attacked and under attack with this decision, and that will have a number of implications. If Roe is overturned, I believe that states will then have the power to interfere in personal decisions. I do believe that there are three specific areas that we should be prepared to address.”

    VP Harris meets with abortion providers in Missouri, other states as court ruling looms

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Vice President Kamala Harris, embracing her role as one of the administration’s most outspoken defenders of abortion rights, spoke Thursday with abortion providers from states with some of the country’s strictest restrictions, saying they are “on the front lines of this war on women’s rights.”

    She was jailed for losing a pregnancy. Her nightmare could become more common

    “In 4 November 2019, TV stations across California blasted Chelsea Becker’s photo on their news editions.
    The “search was on” for a “troubled” 25-year-old woman wanted for the “murder of her unborn baby”, news anchors said, warning viewers not to approach if they spotted her but to call the authorities.

    The next day, Becker was asleep at the home she was staying in when officers with the Hanford police department arrived.

    “The officer had a large automatic weapon pointed at me and a K-9 [dog],” Becker, now 28, recalled in a recent interview. “I walked out and surrendered.”

    —One dark snowy night my car slid off a rural backroad into a ditch and i ran to a friend who lived nearby.
    She was in the process of miscarrying but didn’t know it. Confused, she told me the fetus seemed dead inside her. After a while she went to the bathroom and when I went in the little fetus was motionless on a cloth on the bathroom floor. A boy. She was heartbroken. This is jail time now?

    The January 6 Hearing Today at 1pm ET

  28. June 16, 2022 at 4:36 pm

    a few notes…

    DOJ sent a letter to J6 Committee requesting transcripts.

    Proud Boys told the FBI they would have killed Pence and Pelosi given the chance.

    VP Pence was in secure location 40 feet from the mob.
    He refused to leave the Capitol even though most of his staff got in the car.

    Judge Luttig says “Clear and present danger” if Trump gets into office again.
    Also: “i would have laid my body across the road before I would let the Vice President…”

    Trump wanted Pence to do something (illegal) no Vice President has ever done before.
    Trump knew it was illegal but still publicly pressured Pence while the mob was attacking police officers.

    Eastman wanted a pardon after trying to install trump.
    (His idea being neither VP Gore nor VP Harris could do it, but VP Pence could do it on Jan 6 2020.)

    “Eastman’s actions indicate that Trump pressure plan did not end with Pence.”
    Vice Chair Cheney: “A man who loved his country more than himself would have conceded.”

    The untold story of Ginni Thomas’ anti-cult activism — after she was ‘deprogrammed’

    Ginni Thomas became an anti-cult activist after being pulled out of a self-help program in the 1980s, she said in a video obtained by NBC News. Several people who knew her then are surprised by her apparent embrace of election conspiracies that originated with QAnon.

    “In the 1980s, Virginia “Ginni” Thomas had a moment of clarity: She realized she had fallen in with a group she considered “a cult” and sought to be “deprogrammed” from it, she said in decades-old remarks obtained by NBC News.

    Thomas’ involvement with Lifespring, an organization advertising training seminars purporting to help participants unlock almost superhuman potential, left her wondering what it was about herself that allowed her to be drawn in.”

    writing down a few dots…

    Trump spoke to Pence on the morning of Jan 6th. He called Pence names after he said he wouldn’t go along with the scheme. Ivanka said she hadn’t heard a tone like that from her father towards Pence before.

    So when Trump got up to speak on January 6 he knew Pence would not do it.
    He altered his remarks accordingly and as he was speaking on the Elipse, Proud Boys were already checking out the grounds of the Capitol.

    Trump sent out a tweet at 1am to pressure Pence, whereupon his supporters surged and by loudspeaker threatened to kill the Vice President: “Hearing reports that Pence caved…”
    “We just heard Mike Pence is not going to reject any fraudulent votes.” “Bring out Pence! Hang Mike Pence!”
    One woman said really it was expected, because Trump had mentioned it “about 5 times” in his speech.
