The Widdershins

Archive for January 22nd, 2022

Not that it ever is, but thanks to the events of this week, Der Drumpfenfuhrer and his hellspawn are in bigger legal trouble than they’ve ever been. The January 6th Committee now has all the documents Drumpf wanted to hide, and just from what we’ve seen so far, there are enough smoking guns to spark a four-alarm fire.

Just one of the more terrifying revelations was that Drumpf (likely with the assistance of Sidney Powell) drafted an Executive Order to seize voting machines to have the DNI “assess” them for 60 days, using his Big Lie as an excuse. The media is quick to state that the Order was never signed, although that doesn’t make me feel any better. Clearly the coup was firing on all cylinders and from every direction – the Executive Branch, Congress, the DOJ, the Supreme Court (Ginni Thomas), the DNI, state legislatures, and of course the violent insurrection on January 6th.

I’m sure we’ll find out a lot more about the protofascist, comprehensive attempts to install Drumpf and Rethugs in power forever as the public hearings come up. Co-Chairs Benny Thompson and Liz Cheney are considering holding them in prime time for maximum impact; they’re scheduled to start in March or April, and possibly to go throughout the summer. Sounds good to me.

But this is only the tip of this week’s iceberg. When you’re a crime lord presiding over a crime family that’s incredibly stupid and obvious about their criming, danger can come from anywhere. On Thursday, New York State Attorney General Tish James took legal action to subpoena testimony from the Mango Moron, whispering sex doll Ivanka and dumber-than-dirt Don Jr. (Eric already gave an interview in which he notoriously took the Fifth Amendment 500 times) about the Trump Org and its penchant for just a wee bit of bank, tax and insurance fraud.

“Donald Trump, Donald Trump, Jr., and Ivanka Trump have all been closely involved in the transactions in question, so we won’t tolerate their attempts to evade testifying in this investigation,” James wrote. “We will not be deterred in our efforts to continue this investigation, uncover the facts, and pursue justice, no matter how many roadblocks Mr. Trump and his family throw in our way. No one is above the law.”

Meanwhile, in Fulton County, Georgia, District Attorney Fani Willis requested a special grand jury to advance her investigation of IQ45’s election obstruction in that state. Lest we forget, this investigation would also pull in bootlicking blackmail victim Lindsey Graham.

Willis is also scrutinizing is a Nov. 2020 phone call between Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and the secretary of State, in which Graham asked him if he could toss out mail-in ballots in certain counties, according to Raffensberger. She’s also examining the sudden resignation of U.S. Attorney Byung Pak a day after an audio recording in which Trump called him a “never-Trumper” was made public.

Yes, that also happened this week.

Good Gawd, between all of that and Minema’s antics tanking Biden’s agenda, I am exhausted! Speaking of those two, here’s an interesting article I found making some suggestions about how Biden should hold them accountable for tanking filibuster reform and thus, the voting rights bills. What do you think – should he do it?

Open thread as always!
