Re: Chaos at the Capitol: New thread edition

The whole thing is a good read and shows just how disassociated trump is from the real World . Republicans need to shut him down and work on others Candidates. Kasich and Cheney(as VP) or Hogan(VP) I would be fine with.

Barr a 'RINO,' Ivanka 'checked out': Trump tries to explain the Jan. 6 testimony against him


Despite polls showing that a majority of Americans now believe Trump should be prosecuted by the Justice Department for his efforts to overturn the 2020 election, the former president continues to assert that he did nothing wrong in regard to the riot at the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021.

'Very odd': Trump's 80 seconds deciding where to put his glass of water

Donald Trump was "irate" about losing his Twitter account in the wake of the Jan 6 riots and had convinced himself he won the 2020 election, according to a British documentary maker who had extraordinary access to the former president and his family.

Alex Holder was making a behind-the-scenes film about the Trumps and is now a key witness in the congressional investigation into the attack on the US Capitol.



The President and the glass of water
In December 2020, days after the attorney general Bill Barr had said there was no widespread election fraud, Mr Holder sat down with Mr Trump in the White House.

Mr Trump then spent one minute and 20 seconds moving a glass of water around, deciding whether to have it in the camera shot.

"It was just a very odd thing to witness," said Mr Holder. "It shows who he really is. One of those moments where you get to see behind the scenes that is very unique.

"People can interpret that how they wish. They might say 'Oh, he has attention to detail'. Or, people may say all he cares about is the way he looks and is presented. Either way, it's fascinating.

"I was thinking 'how long is this going to go on for?' I was somewhat perturbed, like 'Can we go now'?"


He tweeted a clip of the video on Thursday, saying: “The Trumps did not have editorial control. Full stop.”

This appeared to be a response to quote from a New York Times piece saying “one person close to the Trump family said that they had believed they would have some editorial control over the project”.

Around the time of the interview it became increasingly clear to Mr Holder that Mr Trump genuinely believed the election had been stolen.

Mr Holder said: "He believed in his own lie. He had absolutely convinced himself that he had actually won, and that all the things he was saying prior [to the election] came true, that actually there was some malfeasance.

"I'm not a psychiatrist. But my take was this is not a rational player. Barr had said there was no [fraud] issue. A few days later he [Mr Trump] is going on and on to me about how there's no way President Biden got 80 million votes, and that he needed to find brave judges, and they're not courageous enough to intervene.

"So he lives in an alternate reality, and engaging in that is foolhardy. It's just like talking to a brick wall."

He added: "I was thinking it was absolutely terrifying. The sitting President of the United States, in the diplomatic reception room at the White House, with the guy with the nuclear football outside the room, and this guy [Mr Trump] is clearly somebody who is living in an alternate reality.

"That somebody you're unable to converse with in a rational manner is in charge of the United States of America was astonishing."

Cipollone corroborated virtually everything from Hutchinson, Jan. 6 panel member says
Rep. Jamie Raskin, D-Md., told NBC News that Trump's White House counsel backed up the bombshell testimony last month from former White House aide Cassidy Hutchinson.

By Ali Vitali, Haley Talbot and Kyle Stewart
WASHINGTON — Trump White House counsel Pat Cipollone corroborated virtually all of the revelations from previous witnesses, including former White House aide Cassidy Hutchinson, in lengthy testimony before the panel last week, a top Jan. 6 committee member told NBC News.

“Cipollone has corroborated almost everything that we’ve learned from the prior hearings,” Rep. Jamie Raskin, D-Md., said in an exclusive interview just hours before the next hearing. “I certainly did not hear him contradict Cassidy Hutchinson. … He had the opportunity to say whatever he wanted to say, so I didn’t see any contradiction there.”

It was unclear if Cipollone was directly asked by investigators about the specifics of some of the more explosive aspects of Hutchinson’s testimony — including that they would be charged with “every crime imaginable” if Trump went to the Capitol on Jan. 6.

Parroting Trump, GOP primary losers cast doubt on elections
NICHOLAS RICCARDI
Sat, July 16, 2022 at 8:02 AM
DENVER (AP) — It was no shock that state Rep. Ron Hanks and Mesa County Clerk Tina Peters handily lost their recent Republican primaries in Colorado for U.S. Senate and secretary of state.

Hanks was outspent 14-to-1 by his rival. Peters, who was vying to become Colorado's top elections official, had been indicted on seven felony charges alleging she helped orchestrate a breach of her voting system's hard drive.

But this past week, both candidates formally requested recounts of their primary elections from June 28, suggesting widespread irregularities seen by no one other than their own campaigns and allies.

“I have reasons to believe extensive malfeasance occurred in the June 2022 primary,” Peters wrote in her recount request, “and that the apparent outcome of this election does not reflect the will of Colorado voters not only for myself but also for many other America First statewide and local primary candidates.”

America First is a coalition of conservative candidates and officeholders who, among other things, promote the falsehood that Democrat Joe Biden did not win the 2020 presidential election.

This idea has seeped deeply into this year's Republican primaries, which have revealed a new political strategy among numerous candidates: running on a platform that denies President Donald Trump's defeat two years ago. As some of those candidates lose their own races, they are reaching new frontiers in election denial by insisting that those primaries, too, were rigged.

“There's a clear reason they're doing it, and it's a much broader, coordinated attack on the freedom to vote across the country,” said Joanna Lydgate of States United Action. Her group supports election officials who recognize the validity of the 2020 election.

Noting that she coaches youth basketball, Lydgate added another reason: “Really, what this is is people who are sore losers, people who don't want to accept defeat."

The primary losers have an obvious role model: Trump himself.

On the Docket: Atlanta v. Trumpworld
Eighteen months into a criminal investigation of election


ATLANTA — The criminal investigation into efforts by former President Donald Trump and his allies to overturn his election loss in Georgia has begun to entangle, in one way or another, an expanding assemblage of characters:

A U.S. senator. A congressman. A local Cadillac dealer. A high school economics teacher. The chair of the state Republican Party. The Republican candidate for lieutenant governor. Six lawyers aiding Trump, including a former New York City mayor. The former president himself. And a woman who has identified herself as a publicist for rapper Kanye West.

Fani Willis, the Atlanta area district attorney, has been leading the investigation since early last year. But it is only this month, with a flurry of subpoenas and target letters, as well as court documents that illuminate some of the closed proceedings of a special grand jury, that the inquiry’s sprawling contours have emerged

For legal experts, that sprawl is a sign that Willis is doing what she has indicated all along: building the framework for a broad case that could target multiple defendants with charges of conspiracy to commit election fraud, or racketeering-related charges for engaging in a coordinated scheme to undermine the election.

“All of these people are from very disparate places in life,” Anthony Michael Kreis, a constitutional law professor at Georgia State University, said of the known witnesses and targets. “The fact that they’re all being brought together really suggests she’s building this broader case for conspiracy.”

What happened in Georgia was not altogether singular. The House committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the Capitol has put on display how Trump and his allies sought to subvert the election results in several crucial states, including by creating slates of fake pro-Trump electors. Yet even as many Democrats lament that the Justice Department is moving too slowly in its inquiry, the local Georgia prosecutor has been pursuing a quickening case that could pose the most immediate legal peril for the former president and his associates.

Whether Trump will ultimately be targeted for indictment remains unclear. But the David-before-Goliath dynamic may in part reflect that Willis’ legal decision-making is less encumbered than that of federal officials in Washington by the vast political and societal weight of prosecuting a former president, especially in a bitterly fissured country.

But some key differences in Georgia law may also make the path to prosecution easier than in federal courts. And there was the signal event that drew attention to Trump’s conduct in Georgia: his call to the secretary of state, Brad Raffensperger, whose office, in Willis’ Fulton County, recorded the president imploring him to “find” the 11,780 votes needed to reverse his defeat.

— The secretive plot to send a fake slate of Georgia electors to Washington. While both parties draw up slates of presidential electors in case their candidate prevails, four of those Republican electors in Georgia dropped out after the election. Nonetheless, leading Republican operatives in the state assembled a new slate of Trump electors to disrupt the transfer of power during Congress’ certification of the vote.

— Numerous misstatements made by Giuliani and others before the state legislature during two hearings in December 2020. Giuliani’s conduct in Georgia was already laid bare by a New York state appellate court last year when it suspended his law license. The court’s 33-page report mentioned Georgia 35 times and described “numerous false and misleading statements regarding the Georgia presidential election results,” including false claims that tens of thousands of underage teenagers had voted illegally in Georgia and that voting machines had altered the outcome.
