I still don't know why the committee called yesturday's emergency meeting. It seemed to be put together quickly, almost over night, and they were not as well prepared as they had been in the other meetings. While there was new evidence like they claimed, none of it that I could see ”had to be known” by "us" right away.

There is an ongoing parallel investigation by the Department of Justice. I had read last week that there was a problem with information sharing. There seems to be disagreement among the committee members with regard to sharing the evidence they have gathered before it is made public. If true, and I have no idea what the reason could be. I do know however that it is not “uncommon” among law enforcement agencies investigating the same crime. Usually when egos play a part.

At any rate, I’m guessing that there might have been vital information somewhere in what we saw yesterday that the DOJ needed for their investigation, and in order to satisfy the member/s on the committee who didn’t want info shared before it is made public, this meeting was hastily called.

    That's a credible theory.

    I surmised they had Hutchinson testify because the committee wanted to goad or embarrass Meadows, Cipollone and some others to testify. The NY Times reported that DOJ is expanding its criminal investigation into the efforts to keep Trump in office after his 2020 election loss. The chief investigator is known hard-ass and dogged prosecutor who goes after criminal organizations starting with the small fry and works up to the big fish. Some of these upper midlevel fish will want to be seen as being cooperative rather than as criminal holdouts.

    I agree with you. What yesterday was about is a mystery to me.

    And, then, to have the Trump quote, where he drops one of po's precious eff bombs, contradicted by Secret Service agents begging to testify under oath?, within minutes?

    An unmitigated disaster.

    Curt, that makes sense and certainly could be true too.

    I know many people including relative who support Trump who are refusing to even watch the hearings, and I can understand how and why it would make them very uncomfortable...So far I'm finding them informative and fascinating !

    If it were the other way around, I'd just absolutely have to watch them !!!

    I'm glad though, that I'm not a Republican right now ! 🍻

    What's your understanding of what people who support Trump think and what about the hearings make them uncomfortable?

    I'm glad though, that I'm not a Republican right now ! 🍻

    Backacha, buddy, backacha.

    "What's your understanding of what people who support Trump think and what about the hearings make them uncomfortable?" -hate

    Perhaps they are finding it too increasingly sickening to keep swallowing all the lies they've been swallowing all this time about Trump that you have built up an hearty appetite for?


  6. by HatetheSwamp on June 29, 2022 3:13 pm

    Yesterday, the lie was on your side.

    Until we hear Ornato speak under oath, it's impossible to say if what she said happened. Even if he denies having told her that, it will be his word against hers.

    As I told od on another thread, why don't you wait until there's more info?

    Islander, here is another guess as to why the committee had Cassidy Hutchinson testify. Maybe they just wanted to own the cons.

    You'll notice how conservatives like HTS and OD are bent out of shape about and gnashing their teeth over the idea of Trump acting like a toddler in the presidential SUV. They have not complained nearly as much about all the testimony that implicated Trump in election fraud, election tampering, sedition, reckless endangerment and a host of other crimes.

    In thinking about it, this isn't so different from my original guess. Owning the cons and goading them into testifying may be the same thing.

    As I told od on another thread, why don't you wait until there's more info.

    I'm willing to wait to see the end result.

    What's perfectly settled, is that something in a very juicy piece of the Committee's narrative went seriously awry.


  10. by Donna on June 29, 2022 4:27 pm
    We don't know that.


  11. by HatetheSwamp on June 30, 2022 3:19 am

    Donna

    What's wrong with you? Of course we know it. The Committee's witness says it happened. The people directly involved say it didn't.

    What we don't know yet is what really happened. But, in the end, most of the chatter about the Committee's MYSTERY WITNESS EXTRAVAGANZA has fizzled into questions about how much was false.

    " here is another guess as to why the committee had Cassidy Hutchinson testify. Maybe they just wanted to own the cons."

    LoL !!! They have certainly accomplished that, Curt 🍻

    Just from reading their posts here it's obvious that these hearings have them on the run ! They are really in a tither.

    All of this must be devastating for them though, it must be similar to what cult members experience as they come to realize the truth of how thoroughly they had been bamboozled.

    They'd been held under the mind control of one person, they were victims of a "personalty cult". You could see it in their rallies, in their eyes, and when listened to them talk. I'm relieved and honestly quite happy to see it coming to an end. We're watching it all unfold although it can't be easy for them.


  13. by Ponderer on June 30, 2022 7:37 am

    Exactly, Isle.

    Trump World is in total meltdown mode right now. And it's going to be getting a whole lot worse for them before this is done.


  14. by Donna on June 30, 2022 8:37 am
    Yet the Supreme Court will remain intact in its present form for decades to come. Trump's legacy lives on. We're doomed.



  15. by HatetheSwamp on June 30, 2022 8:42 am

    Don't be such a fatalist, Donna. You have both Houses of Congress...

    ...and a very fine President.


  16. by Donna on June 30, 2022 9:40 am
    This Supreme Court will flex its power in ways that Congress only dreamed of. It's a strategy the right has been working on for decades. Instead of trying to enact major policies through Congress, Republicans will now acheive what they couldn't acheive in Congress via the Supreme Court. As Mitch McConnell said, creating the current Supreme Court was his number one priority.

    It is finished.


  17. by HatetheSwamp on June 30, 2022 12:42 pm

    Donna,

    Could you explain how you justify supporting the court for assertively interpreting the Constitution to justify same sex marriage and criticizing it when it assertively shoots down environmental regulations that don't reflect the will of Congress?

    You seem hypocritical to me. I'm sure I'm misunderstanding.
