Trump Responds to the Sad Story of the J6 Hearings
Proof emerges of Committee peddling another lie.
The J6 committee has been caught in another lie … as Trump responds to this “Kangaroo Court.”
Even sleazy used car salesmen have to be going, “What are these J6 Committee members trying to pull?”
A second day of public, one-sided, hearings was no more credible than the first. In fact, let’s start by talking about credibility.
From Axios: “Members of the Jan. 6 committee say they’ve gathered enough evidence to support a Justice Department indictment against Trump for attempting to overturn the 2020 election results.”
These are the same people who said they had enough evidence to convict Trump for colluding with Russia in the 2016 election. A proven hoax.
These are the same people who said they had enough evidence to convict Trump for blackmailing Ukraine’s president to get dirt on Joe and Hunter Biden. A proven lie. (Besides that, we now know Biden Inc. was already under investigation by the FBI for its overseas shenanigans.)
I mean, there’s Rep. Adam Schiff — of all people — talking about “credible evidence.” That’s like Jabba the Hutt talking about healthy eating habits. Amber Heard talking about domestic tranquility.
Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. Fool me a third time, and I’m a CNN viewer.
Uh, You Seemed to Forget Some Things, Bennie
Here’s how Rep. Bennie Thompson opened day two of their public inquisition.
“We’ll tell the story of how Donald Trump lost an election, and knew he lost an election, and as a result of his loss decided to wage an attack on our democracy.”
Story indeed. Uh, Bennie. You left off the part where Zuckerberg spent nearly half a billion dollars directly to election offices in swing state democratic-heavy districts to pack the staffing with progressive activists to gin up Biden votes.
Left off the ballot drop boxes again paid for by Zuckerberg to allow easy and illegal ballot harvesting, as proven in the movie 2000 Mules. Sure, you played a clip of former Attorney General Bill Barr, but Barr’s dire warnings in 2020 about what a disaster such ballot boxes and massive, uncontrolled mail-in balloting was going to be.
You also left off dozens of Obama and Bush intel officers lying to the American people by asserting the Hunter laptop was Russian misinformation, a despicable lie specifically designed to sway the election.
You left off the Big Tech censorship of any story hostile to Biden. You left off the algorithms and tricks that suppressed the Republican vote.
You also left off the proven malfeasance in Fulton County, Georgia. The robbing of votes from the comatose in Wisconsin nursing homes. And Michigan’s Secretary of State threatening to disbar lawyers who dared question results in her state, to say nothing of the death threats against those charged with certifying the election.
Did you screen 2000 Mules? How about talk to the Wisconsin Special Council who found overwhelming evidence of election fraud, including hook-ups between election machines and progressive activists? How about look at the falsified forms in Fulton uncovered by VoterGA? Or talk about the new report from DHS exposing the vulnerabilities of Dominion Election Systems?
We can go on all day, Bennie.
Actually, forget all that, Bennie. How about just play a video of any Biden appearance the past 18 months and ask, “Do you really think this guy got 81 Million votes?” ‘Cmon, man!
Everyone who participated in the "Trump stole 2016 by colluding with Russia" hoax (nearly everyone in DC!) engaged in a million times worse activity than the crew that thought there was something fishy about Biden receiving 81 MILLION votes. And everyone knows it!

Yeah. Trump Wanted to Overthrow Democracy Rather Than Return to His Idyllic Billionaire Life
But in a lighter vein, there is another problem with your “story,” Bennie. It makes no sense.
For four years, 24/7, Donald Trump was targeted, attacked, cheated, betrayed, slandered, hunted. Rioters tried to kill him during the Floyd riots. He was stabbed in the back by RINO Republicans. His personal fortune took a massive hit. Hundreds of millions of dollars. His wife and kids were abused on a daily basis.
If Trump legitimately lost, he faced the “terrible” prospect of taking his supermodel wife, and returning to his day job building resorts on the most beautiful spots on the planet and life as a carefree billionaire. You really believe anyone in Trump’s swanky shoes would try to overthrow democracy just to stick around in The Swamp and take more abuse?
Call the Bluff!
But the Democrats are desperate to indict Trump over his efforts to fight the Zuckerberg-funded hijacking of the American election to keep him from running again.
This is where Trump and the Republicans need to turn into Clint Eastwood. “Go ahead, make my day.” Indict the former president and his defense is “Well, the election was stolen.” Then the Americans that watch only the mainstream media gets to finally see the evidence. A win.
Ah, but here’s the rub: If, by chance, this blatant, Stalinist use of the DOJ against their political opponent works and Trump is knocked out of the 2024 race, there’s Gov. Ron DeSantis kneeling in the on-deck circle.
“Uh, on second thought, maybe we’ll pass on that effort to indict Trump.”
Trump Responds to J6 Hearings
As for Donald Trump himself, the former President released a 12-page rebuttal Monday to the J6 hearings. He called it “a Kangaroo Court, hoping to distract the American people from the great pain they are experiencing.”
The January 6th Unselect Committee is disgracing everything we hold sacred about our Constitution. If they had any real evidence, they’d hold real hearings with equal representation. They don’t, so they use the illegally-constituted committee to put on a smoke and mirrors show for the American people, in a pitiful last-ditch effort to deceive the American public…again.
Our Constitution protects the right to confront accusers, honors the right to fair trials, and holds the right to legal representation as paramount in our justice system. Equal representation and the opportunity to offer rebuttal evidence is fundamental in our legal process. The Committee has obliterated those rights and is making a mockery of justice. They have refused to allow their political opponents to participate in this process, and have excluded all exculpatory witnesses, and anyone who so easily points out the flaws in their story.
A Double Dose of Unproven and Discredited Allegations Against GOP Republicans
It’s not just Trump they’re trying to ruin. By any means necessary.
Bennie Thompson and Liz Cheney, the Bonnie & Clyde of Due Process, accused Republican Rep. Barry Loudermilk (R-Georgia) last month of leading a reconnaissance mission inside the Capitol for January 6 insurrectionists the day before the riot.
That is a flat out lie. You know who says so? New Capitol Hill Police Chief J. Thomas Manger. Just the News has the full story. In a letter Monday to the ranking Republican on the House Administrative Committee, Chief Manger said an exhaustive study of security footage showed zero evidence that Rep. Loudermilk did anything more than give some constituents a typical tour of some congressional office buildings. He never even went to the Capitol itself!
“There is no evidence that Representative Loudermilk entered the U.S. Capitol with this group on January 5, 2021,” Chief Manger wrote, “We train our officers on being alert for people conducting surveillance or reconnaissance, and we do not consider any of the activities we observed as suspicious.”
You can read the Chief’s full letter here.
One of the charges made during Thursday night’s prime time hearing was that multiple House Republicans had sought presidential pardons. Liz Cheney singled out Rep. Scott Perry. Perry shot back on Friday. “The notion that I ever sought a Presidential pardon for myself or other Members of Congress is an absolute, shameless, and soulless lie.”
On Sunday, CNN host Dana Bash pushed Rep. Jamie Raskin, “What evidence do you have?” As The Blaze reports Raskin didn’t answer directly, nor did he offer any evidence, only passively declaring that “in due course” the details “will surface.”
Yeah. Right on top of that proof of Trump colluding with Russia that Democrats promised for three years.
Bottom line: They want to DQ Trump and MAGA Republicans. And they’re hoping low IQ voters buy it.
Wednesday Hearing Postponed
Finally, Wednesday’s public hearing was suddenly postponed. Committee member Rep. Zoe Lofgren told Morning Joe it’s “no big deal.”
“Putting together the video exhibits is an exhausting exercise for our very small video staff … it’s just too much to put together.”
Yeah, crafting a political narrative out of bits and pieces of fact is a lot harder than telling the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.
