To much pomp and circumstance by the mainstream media, Tuesday’s hearing of January 6th Committee was held again. Were the members able to provide direct evidence of Donald Trump’s coup plot? You can probably guess the answer, but the previous strategy of sending out information to confuse people so that they connect dots which are far apart was used.
This committee’s work is like watching a child eating a birthday cake. It’s amazing to see the things fly off into all directions, while admiring witnesses talk about how fantastic it is. And yeah, it’s a big show, but what are you left with in the end except for cake smeared everywhere?
So what was the big “bombshell” this go around? Apparently, Donald Trump tried to call someone who didn’t answer the phone. Yes, that’s what’s leading the news out of the latest hearing.
Sources told ABC News that the person former President Donald Trump was charged with having reached out to following Jan. 6, hearing in which Cassidy Hutchinson, former administration assistant, testified.
Trump’s alleged contact with the individual was described on Tuesday by the House Jan. 6 committee’s vice chair, Wyoming Republican Rep. Liz Cheney, who did not name the person.
“After our last hearing, President Trump tried to call a witness in our investigation — a witness you have not yet seen in these hearings,” she said at the close of the most recent committee hearing.
Cheney stated that the witness didn’t answer the phone call.
“Their lawyer alerted us, and this committee has supplied that information to the Department of Justice,” she said.
These are some things you should be aware of. First of all, while I’m no lawyer, I’d suspect that in order to illegally tamper with a witness, you’d need to actually talk to the witness about the specific matter at hand, right? In this case, the accusation is that Donald Trump tried to call someone and that they didn’t answer. The committee felt that it was necessary to inform the Department of Justice. Trump could be accused of malicious intent to call someone or make a telephone call.
You don’t even have to go that far, though. Donald Trump would not know the names of the witnesses on the January 6th Committee. The committee’s entire act is to keep the names hidden, rolling out witnesses in slow motion in order to generate the most press hype. Even if Trump did get in touch with the alleged staffer, it would not have been his intention to alter a witness’ testimony because he couldn’t know who that witness was.
This is just one example of the ridiculousness that is January 6th Committee. All of their “evidence” boils down to marginal innuendo. The media then make the most banal revelations into game-changing information and pretend that dots are connected. But dots aren’t being connected. In fact, several months into this charade, we are still not an inch closer to having proof Donald Trump planned January 6th or was aware it would occur, which was the committee’s chief accusation going into this.
Amazingly, though, news of that phone call isn’t the dumbest thing to come out of Tuesday’s hearing. Barbara McQuade (MSNBC Legal Analyst) believes that Trump might be indicted for manslaughter.
McQuade stated that Trump’s associates couldn’t rely upon free speech arguments in order to shield them against criminal prosecutions during a MSNBC panel discussion.
“If you can make that connection that this was a planned attack, you could supersede that seditious conspiracy indictment to add Trump or [Roger Stone] or anyone else who was involved in the planning,” she explained.
“The other thing that is coming clear to me is there is a potential charge here against Donald Trump for manslaughter,” McQuade said, referring to the seven deaths connected to the Jan. 6 attack.
McQuade, a former US attorney is astonishingly surprising. These are the caliber of people who are given the power to destroy people’s lives on a whim at the DOJ. How does this theory even make sense? Has anyone in the history of the United States ever been charged with manslaughter because the cops shot someone during a riot they weren’t even present at? Again, is this evidence that Donald Trump planned the attack?
This committee is so far along the rabbit hole that it makes no sense. We are far from making a clear, fact-based case for Trump. Instead, analysts go on about manslaughter and Liz Cheney pretends that not speaking to witnesses is witness tampering. It’s parodical.
