Jan 6 Committee Finale: Handing Anti-MAGA Football To DOJ For Prosecutions After Dems Lose the House

Jan 6 Committee Finale: Handing Anti-MAGA Football To DOJ For Prosecutions After Dems Lose the House

The made-for-TV J6 show trial has concluded, but the endgame unfolds: Criminal referrals and a subpoena to Trump to hand the football to Merrick Garland and DOJ to keep up the attacks after Democrats lose the House.

The final episode in the made-for-TV movie called the January 6 House Select Committee Hearings has just finished, with the final “hearing” today.

Of course, the hearings were not hearings. There was no opposition permitted. Thousands of hours of video and tens of thousands of pages of evidence were edited down and selectively used to do one thing: Get the political opposition as broadly as possible. This was no search for the truth, it was a political infomercial.

The final episode was today, but the final play is to hand the anti-MAGA football to Merrick Garland and DOJ to prosecute Democrats’ political opposition once Democrats lose the House, as is likely.

Liz Cheney announced that the Committee is making criminal referrals:

The Committee also voted to subpoena Trump for questioning. Once again, Liz Cheney led the way:

These moves, particularly the subpoena, would not seem to make sense. Once, and assuming, Republicans take over in January, they can vote to rescind the subpoena and revoke any finding of contempt, so is it futile?

At least one person thinks the strategy is to hand off the football to DOJ so it’s out of the control of the future Republican-controlled House:

That probably is the plan.

But will Merrick Garland really prosecute someone for failing to comply with a subpoena that has been withdrawn, and a contempt vote that has been rescinded?

You must be new around here if you think he won’t. At a minimum, it will provide the pretext for a new round of FBI terror, with seizures of electronic devices, raids on lawyers, and swat teams swooping at dawn on families in their pajamas.

There’s something missing in Liz’s picture. A big red circle with a red line through it. Bye Bye Liz.

    “swat teams swooping at dawn on families in their pajamas.”

    Probably on Christmas or New Years eve.

    It would be fun to see Liz Cheney receive similar treatment to what has been dished out Trump and his supporters., especially the Jan 6 people and other Trump staff being crucified. All of this should be a template for retribution.

      I will be very surprised if Republicans dish out retribution. They barely have an intact spinal column among them. If they do, there is much they can do to show they aren’t screwing around:
      – Remove Ilhan Omar from her committees for her Anti-Semitic statements and force her to stand in the well while she is reprimanded. If she doesn’t apologize, eject her from the House.
      – Remove all ranking members from their committees.
      – Eject Schiff for his role in the Russia collusion hoax
      – Reformulate the J6 committee to investigate the intelligence & leadership failures running up to J6, how the event unfolded, and the mistreatment of the participants. How did Ashli Babbit and the other woman (name escapes me) die and who is responsible?
      – Impeachment proceedings for a myriad of Biden Admin officials (Myorkis first, Garland second, etc), and Biden himself – for the attempted Quid Pro Quo with Saudi Arabia to meddle in the election.

      etc etc. I’m sure others can think up some good steps to show Democrats we aren’t messing around any more.

      But I have no confidence in McCarthy to do any of it. Maybe he’ll surprise me, but I doubt it.

        Gosport in reply to bhwms. | October 14, 2022 at 12:12 pm

        About that Biden impeachment… slow roll it for 2 years. .

        Turn the ‘the process is the punishment’ tactic of the left back on them. Cripple his administration’s ability to screw anything else up but please, please, don’t put Harris in the Oval Office.

          Dimsdale in reply to Gosport. | October 14, 2022 at 12:34 pm

          Agreed! Grind it out, with lots of teasers and “people close to the perp” giving out information (I bet the press will investigate those sources).

          Every once in a while, when interest wanes, toss out a “walls closing in” moment…

          The Dems are such good teachers!!

      No, if they do any ‘swooping’ it will be in the week before elections. This is a giant Get Out The Insane Nutcase Vote effort underway, and they need something to whip the fanatics into a froth and drive them to the polls in a way that makes them ignore hyperinflation, a disintegrating economy, warmongering, shipping their tax dollars off to favored political donors, etc…

Really makes you rethink Bush/Cheney. This level of corruption in every branch, totally uncontested by the GOP, is unprecedented. Executive, Judiciary, Legislative, and every single Federal Agency and Democratic State. Complete and absolute corruption without end.

    Olinser in reply to puhiawa. | October 14, 2022 at 1:44 am

    That idiot W Bush and his so-called ‘compassionate conservatism’ were one of the worst things that ever happened to this country. He exploded the national debt and spending, got us involved in utterly idiotic wars with no actual objectives beyond nebulous ‘nation building’, that rapidly turned into ‘military contractor payoffs without end’, and worst of all, DID ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO FIGHT BACK.

    He was directly responsible for Obama and a whole host of RINO trash that still infest Congress.

    And to this date has said not one single word against the insane far left, but he was sure willing to open his mouth and trash Trump.

    MattMusson in reply to puhiawa. | October 14, 2022 at 9:10 am

    In the 3rd day of the Danchenko trial it came out that he received $200K from the FBI to inform on Trump.

    On day 2 we learned the FBI offered him a cool million for a copy of the Pee tape.

    JHogan in reply to puhiawa. | October 14, 2022 at 1:32 pm

    I’ve already rethought Bush/Cheney. Both Bush presidents actually.

    And came to my final conclusion when W, who I voted for twice, and to my everlasting regret and shame defended against criticism many times, said Trump/MAGA supporters — which includes me — were little different from Al Qaeda.

    Bush I, Bush II, and Cheney were a disaster for the US. Hard to say they were any better than the opponents they defeated in elections.

    Just as an example — the Bush/Cheney ‘Patriot’ Act. Which is now being used to target political opponents as ‘domestic terrorists’.

    I have also rethought Assange and Snowden, who tried to blow the whistle early on and tell us what was likely coming — a surveillance and police state in the US targeting US citizens.

    I’ve also rethought the FBI. It is the effectively US Gestapo, the state political police, used by the Uniparty to harass, persecute, entrap, prosecute, and imprison American political dissidents who oppose the Uniparty and its socialist globalist agenda for the US.

    And so on and so forth.

    M Poppins in reply to puhiawa. | October 14, 2022 at 4:23 pm

    You’re right. As I see it, there is no political solution.

    Barry in reply to puhiawa. | October 16, 2022 at 8:35 pm

    “Really makes you rethink Bush/Cheney.”

    I’m sorry you’re just now figuring that out. The bush family sold out long ago.

I think President Trump needs to have an”I’ll was” about November that unfortunately doesn’t allow him the ability to come forth to “testify” till, oh say, Feb 1st amd then miraculously, he is cured

My two cents

And absolutely everyone should ditch their electronics and stash any documentation of any worth

Yesterday

We are witnessing 10%-plus Bideninflation on consumer staples and gasoline; folks’ IRA’s and 401(k)’s have dropped ~25-33% (or, more, depending on portfolio allocation and holding period); the southern border is a porous sieve; cities are under siege from sociopath criminals and their Dumb-o-crat politician/prosecutor enablers; dotard-marionette Biden’s foreign policy is a feckless and inept joke; the Dumb-o-crats are committed to perpetual racial agitation and grievance-mongering; the Dumb-o-crats are obsessed with pushing “trans” ideology and non-medically necessary mutilation upon kids; but, the Dumb-o-crats think that rational people give a damn about their January 6th show trial charade and theatrics?

The DOJ knows it has “safe harbors” where every case will go their way. This is all a build up pre-indictment to prime the system. Whether they have a judge who will tell the jury during the trial that Trump is guilty, as they did with Alex Jones, or have it in the bag with selected jurors remains to be seen.

    gonzotx in reply to alaskabob. | October 13, 2022 at 10:18 pm

    It will be in DC, of course the jury will be rigged

    This is beyond insane

      JHogan in reply to gonzotx. | October 14, 2022 at 1:40 pm

      They don’t need to rig the jury if the trial is in DC. 97% of DC voters voted for Biden. The jury will rubber stamp the prosecutor’s charges with a great big ‘guilty’ verdict no matter who is picked.

      Any trial of Trump or a Trump supporter held in DC is a sham and a mockery of justice.

      Not much different than a trial presided over by Roland Freisler in Nazi Germany.

If we elected the proper repubs, doj would be in a funding crisis if they tried to get away with this.

It’d be a real shame if he just happened to go visit one of his foreign properties until January.

    #FJB <-- Disco Stu_ in reply to Ironclaw. | October 14, 2022 at 7:32 am

    Though one might imagine some genuine reality-TV entertainment if Pres. Bull-in-China-Shop Trump felt feisty enough to sit in front of this idiot committee and challenge THEM unrestrained.

I said it last year, and nothing has happened to change my opinion.

They ARE GOING to try and arrest Trump and prosecute him. For what, doesn’t matter. They just need to put him in front of an insane leftist DC jury and they’re guaranteed a conviction.

It’s literally all they have left at this point.

    JHogan in reply to Olinser. | October 14, 2022 at 1:41 pm

    They probably already have their Roland Freisler of a judge picked out.

      They already have a totally biased judge in the one who has been running the J6 prosecutions in DC. 100% conviction rate with none of the juries being out for a day. Stalin never had it so good.

The Democrats have been trying to create a new Watergate moment for many years now; that was when the held the House beyond any reasonable expectation due tar and feathering Republicans. They now see the House slipping away for perhaps 10-20 years if they do have their moment now.

Only two? I don’t got dove hunting without three ways to make a fire. Flint and steel. Waterproof matches. A lighter.

“We are obligated to seek answers directly from the man who set this all in motion,” Cheney said.

He didn’t stop it, which he should have. But I haven’t seen any evidence that Trump “set this all in motion.״

    gonzotx in reply to Stuytown. | October 14, 2022 at 2:49 am

    Stop it? It was over in minutes and what was he suppose to do?
    He tries to prevent it amd they refused all his efforts and then sabotaged the crowd with FBI actors and capital police

    Stop How? He offered National Guard before the event and Pelosi turned it down. What was he supposed to do?

    Dimsdale in reply to Stuytown. | October 14, 2022 at 12:45 pm

    Actually, the voting fraud by the left was what set this in motion.

“At a minimum, it will provide the pretext for a new round of FBI terror, with seizures of electronic devices, raids on lawyers, and swat teams swooping at dawn on families in their pajamas.”

Going to be hard to do if the Repubs take the House and deny funding to the FBI

    That’s one giant if. I’m not holding my breath.

    MattMusson in reply to diver64. | October 14, 2022 at 8:30 am

    The FBI needs to be broken into pieces and those pieces need to be moved out into the states. They are too powerful to be located in DC.

      diver64 in reply to MattMusson. | October 14, 2022 at 7:00 pm

      Bongino has been saying this for a couple of weeks and i agree. Fire everyone in charge and dole out the agents to other agencies. The rot is too deep

    mailman in reply to diver64. | October 14, 2022 at 8:49 am

    I guarantee you the DoJ and FBI will suddenly become non-partisan and will start ignoring Congress while they go about their duty of harassing anyone with the wrong political beliefs.

    Otto Kringelein in reply to diver64. | October 14, 2022 at 12:39 pm

    <i.Going to be hard to do if the Repubs take the House and deny funding to the FBI

    Republicans might retake the House, even the Senate. But as sure as the Sun rising in the East they don’t have the balls to “deny funding to the FBI”. Or anything else for that matter.

      Correct. The McConnell Wing of the Uniparty just voted to give the FIB an additional $100,000,000 a few months ago.

      There seem to be a few starting to raise this flag. I heard one on some show today along with a wholesale revision of all the intelligence agencies after the Russian Dossier fiasco coupled with the raid on Trump

    Barry in reply to diver64. | October 16, 2022 at 8:42 pm

    “Going to be hard to do if the Repubs take the House and deny funding to the FBI”

    That’s pretty funny. Apparently you are unaware the republicans are the marxists party’s handmaidens…

“At a minimum, it will provide the pretext for a new round of FBI terror, with seizures of electronic devices, raids on lawyers, and swat teams swooping at dawn on families in their pajamas.”

And at a maximum, the new GOP Congress will spew hot air in hearings that hold no one accountable.

    MattMusson in reply to Longplay. | October 14, 2022 at 8:33 am

    Maybe they will send criminal referrals about the FBI, to the FBI to pursue.

    mailman in reply to Longplay. | October 14, 2022 at 8:50 am

    And how will you enforce this accountability? Criminal referrals to Biden’s DoJ and FBI? Guarantee your left flap that Biden’s DoJ and FBI will ignore everything sent their way from Jan onwards.

OK, Let us say Garland gets the opportunity to prosecute Trump. The new House merely withdraws DOJ/FBI funding at it’s next opportunity. Not to mention the opportunity to refer prosecution of several FBI/DOJ employees for attempting to overthrow the president based on the Igor Deschenko trial testimony.

    bhwms in reply to kjon. | October 14, 2022 at 10:19 am

    “at the next opportunity.” Unless they do something like go month-to-month with continuing resolutions, the next opportunity will be a year away.

    Take away the funding for the Washington DC FBI field office. It should no longer exist. Same with the USA for DC. I might even eliminate the DC circuit court – too many activists sitting there. Tell the judges they can either retire, or be moved to rural Montana, North Dakota, Alabama, Mississippi or northern Idaho..

    gonzotx in reply to kjon. | October 14, 2022 at 10:29 am

    Won’t happen

    You have to have condones and we have McConnell/ McCarthy, who want it to happen

Any reccomendations by this Kangaroo Commitee that ran a show trial and doctored critical evidence.and refused to consider critical issues as pointed out by Alan Dershowitz are frivolous

I just want one thing at the beginning of the next House with a Republican majority.

“Mr. Speaker, I move that all records, interviews, and other such documents involved in any way with the January 6th committee of last year be made public by the end of the week.”
(five minutes later after the vote)
“It has been so moved and approved. Next item of business, revocation of committee assignments.”

    Gosport in reply to georgfelis. | October 14, 2022 at 12:24 pm

    Don’t be shy, do what the Dems did. Subpoena all of their phone records, texts, tax returns, family members, birthday cards, the guy who walks their dog, everything. Nothing is out of bounds.

The best course of action a new Republican congress can take on day one is to impeach a judge or two, like the one who signed the Mara Lago warrant or a J6 judge for unusual punishment (two years incarceration prior to trial for trespassing?). That will send a warning across the bow of judges who find themselves sitting across from FBI agents ready to “swear” a warrant.

Mail-In ballots were first used since the Civil War, which lead to Abraham

This whole charade is a deep state ploy to suppress mention of the stolen election, an excuse to further weaponize the agencies.
