Ron Johnson now says he helped coordinate effort to pass false elector slates to Pence, but his new explanation drew a quick rebuke

snip.........

But he said in a Thursday interview on WIBA-AM that he had since discovered the documents came from Pennsylvania U.S. Rep. Mike Kelly, and acknowledged he coordinated with Dane County attorney Jim Troupis and his chief of staff by text message that morning to get to Pence a document Troupis described as regarding "Wisconsin electors."

Kelly's office immediately pushed back on Johnson's claim, saying: "Senator Johnson's statements about Representative Kelly are patently false."

"Mr. Kelly has not spoken to Sen. Johnson for the better part of a decade, and he has no knowledge of the claims Mr. Johnson is making related to the 2020 election."

On Thursday, Johnson said Troupis contacted him by text message on the morning of Jan. 6, 2021, to get a document on "Wisconsin electors" to Pence.

Johnson said he then introduced the attorney to his chief of staff by text message to handle the request. He said he did not know what the document was or intended to accomplish.

In a story by conservative reporter John Solomon and shared by Johnson on Thursday, Solomon reported Kelly also called Troupis to get elector documents to Pence that morning through Johnson.

I am sick to death of the "if we had only done X" arguments

Enough bashing each other for what SHOULD HAVE HAPPENED. Revisiting 2016 or the stolen SCOTUS seat or the fucking Jill Stein voters is not going to make our lives any better this day.

What can we do NOW?

Have you written letters to your congresspeople? Made calls? Sent money for abortion travel? Attended a protest?

No? What the fuck are you waiting for, someone else to do the work for you? If you want to save America, then let's get to work.

We need EVERY SINGLE ONE OF US to be engaged and furious and to do whatever we can. Whining about the past won't do a damn thing.


Tell me what you've done.

I've written my Senators and I've donated money for abortion funds. Tell me what you've done.

This is how you can take action NOW

Write to your Senators: https://www.senate.gov/senators/senators-contact.htm

Here's an example letter:

I'm writing (or calling) today because I’m outraged by the Supreme Court’s decision to ignore settled law and overturn Roe v. Wade. I demand Senator YOUR SENATOR support a filibuster carve-out for abortion access and pass H.R. 3755, Women’s Health Protection Act. The Senate must act swiftly to ensure pregnant women have continued access to abortion healthcare.

Codifying abortion access through federal legislation is one of our last options to protect pregnant women. Last September, the House passed the Women’s Health Protection Act (H.R. 3755), which creates legal protections for both abortion providers and abortion care patients at the federal level. The bill safeguards access to abortion nationwide by preventing restrictions such as six-week bans, mandatory delay periods, biased anti-choice abortion counseling, and medically unnecessary ultrasounds.

It is now time for the Senate to act. Nobody should face forced birth. The rights to privacy and bodily autonomy are fundamental in a free and fair society. I demand that Senator YOUR SENATOR supports and immediately passes a filibuster carve-out and H.R. 3755.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Poor RBG is spinning in her grave.

Every time this illegitimate SCOTUS comes out with another horrifying ruling I think of RBG, but especially today.

She thought abortion should have been decided on a different case, and based on equal protection, or sex discrimination, not privacy, because she said that basing it on equal protection wouldn't allow it to be overturned. Basing it only on privacy wasn't as strong a foundation. She said that only women become pregnant, so discrimination on that basis is a violation of equality.

She said:

The decision whether or not to bear a child is central to a woman’s life, to her well-being and dignity. It is a decision she must make for herself. When Government controls that decision for her, she is being treated as less than a fully adult human responsible for her own choices.


DOJ wants to know if Sidney Powell is funding Oath Keepers' defense

DOJ wants to know if Sidney Powell is funding Oath Keepers’ defense

The Justice Department is asking a federal judge to probe possible financial relationships between members of the Oath Keepers accused of trying to prevent Joe Biden from becoming president and a nonprofit entity run by former Donald Trump attorney Sidney Powell that spread false election claims.

“The government is ... protecting the record by involving the Court in the process of addressing a potential conflict before it undermines a proceeding and a defendant’s right to competent and conflict-free representation,” prosecutors wrote Wednesday.

The unusual request follows media reports that Powell’s nonprofit organization, Defending the Republic, has used some of the millions of dollars it has raised through spreading conspiracy theories about the 2020 election to pay legal fees for Oath Keepers members facing trial. According to BuzzFeed and Mother Jones articles cited in the filing, four defendants — including Stewart Rhodes, who founded the self-styled militia group — have taken funds from Powell’s organization.

All four are accused of obstructing Congress’s counting of electoral college votes on Jan. 6, 2021; Rhodes and two others are accused of engaging in a seditious conspiracy against the United States.

DOJ subpoenas Georgia Republican Party chairman as it expands Trump fake elector probe

DOJ subpoenas Georgia Republican Party chairman as it expands Trump fake elector probe

(CNN)Federal investigators subpoenaed the Georgia Republican Party chairman for information related to the fake elector scheme there -- as the Justice Department has issued a fresh round of subpoenas to people from several states who acted as rogue electors after the 2020 presidential election, multiple sources familiar with the situation told CNN.

The subpoena for the chairman, David Shafer, represents a significant step because he played a central role in organizing the fake slate of electors from Georgia and coordinated the effort with the Trump campaign.
This story is breaking and will be updated.


Smells like conspiracy.

Justice Dept. expands Jan. 6 probe with fresh subpoenas

Justice Dept. expands Jan. 6 probe with fresh subpoenas

The Justice Department’s investigation of the Jan. 6 attack ratcheted up Wednesday as federal agents dropped subpoenas on people in at least two states, in what appeared to be a widening probe of how political activists supporting President Donald Trump tried to use invalid electors to thwart Joe Biden’s 2020 electoral victory.

FBI officials confirmed to The Washington Post that agents conducted court authorized law enforcement activity Wednesday morning at two locations — one the address of Brad Carver, a Georgia lawyer who allegedly signed a document claiming to be a Trump elector, and another the Virginia home of Thomas Lane, who worked on the Trump campaign’s efforts in Arizona and New Mexico. The FBI officials did not identify the people associated with those addresses, but public records list each of the locations as the home addresses of the men.

The precise nature of the information being sought by the Justice Department wasn’t immediately clear; however, Arizona and Georgia officials testified Tuesday to a House panel probing the Jan. 6 attacks about attempts by Trump and his inner circle of advisers to try to reverse Biden’s electoral college victories in those states.

Officials have previously said that the Justice Department and FBI were examining the issue of false electors, who Trump and others hoped might be approved by state legislators in a last-ditch bid to keep Trump in the White House. Until now, however, those investigative efforts seemed to primarily involve talking to people in Republican circles who knew of the scheme and objected; the subpoenas issued Wednesday suggest the Justice Department is now moving to question at least some of those who allegedly agreed to pursue the effort.

Trump administration's relationship with Proud Boys 'will be the subject' of future J6 Committee hea

Trump administration's relationship with Proud Boys 'will be the subject' of future J6 Committee hearings: DOJ

snip...............

What's more, the DOJ specifically says that "the relationship between the Trump Administration and the Proud Boys and other groups will be the subject of a future hearing" from the January 6th Committee.


Emphasis mine.

Hm, what does the DOJ know? Look like they've been conducting their own investigation into the link between the bloated orange motherfucker and the Shameful Boys.

Forget treason. Charge him with sedition (easier to prove) and TERRORISM

That motherfucker singled out specific citizens doing their jobs and sicced the mob on them. A woman who loved to help old people vote and her mother will never be the same ever again. They live in fear even now. They've been terrorized.

Charge him as a terrorist.

In today's hearing, I can't wait for ... how about you?

I can't wait for Raffensperger's answer when they ask him why he taped the phone call.

What are you looking forward to today?
