[ Editor’s Note: Now the process begins to see how long the Trumpers can drag out complying with the subpoenas, and if the courts can rule quickly on the expected ‘executive privilege’ claims.

The good news there is that if they thought they had privileged coverage, the White House people may have left a bigger paper trail as to what was going on prior to January 6. As for testimony under oath, if anyone lies and gets caught they have a perjury charge hanging over them.

Trump is referring to the ‘Unselect Committee’ in a derogatory manner, as expected, to show off to his base. The mention of the committee wanting to finish their investigation by Spring was good news, if it is possible.

They will certainly want to be exposing the truth of what happened as the 2022 campaign season heats up, and Trump will be wanting to do the opposite. If the Repubs can retake Congress in 2022, the whole ball game changes.

The select panel investigating the Jan. 6 insurrection is issuing subpoenas to four current and former top aides to President Donald Trump, including his most recent chief of staff Mark Meadows.

The committee issued its first subpoenas on Thursday to Meadows; former Pentagon official and longtime House Intelligence Committee aide Kash Patel; former top White House adviser Steve Bannon; and longtime Trump social media chief Dan Scavino. It marks a turning point in the investigation as lawmakers begin homing in on Trump’s effort to overturn the 2020 election results.

…The Jan. 6 committee’s chair, Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.), had foreshadowed Wednesday that the first subpoenas would go out imminently, as the panel kicks into high gear with the goal of finishing its work by next spring. The four Trump associates will be commanded to produce relevant documents by Oct. 7 and appear for depositions the following week.

“The Select Committee has revealed credible evidence of your involvement in events within the scope of the Select Committee’s inquiry,” Thompson wrote in the letter to Meadows, saying he has “critical information regarding many elements of our inquiry.”

  1. ReTrumplicans have given up on democracy, and the rule of law. This was clear from last November when Lindsey Graham said, “We have to do something about mail-in voting or Republicans will never win another election in the USA.” Since then, on the state level, They’ve done everything they could to suppress the vote, especially in big cities like Phoenix, Atlanta, and Milwaukee where Democrats used main-in ballots to avoid hours-long lines at pitifully-few poling stations. They’ve also thrown a monkey wrench into the legal process on the national level. If you didn’t notice the religious fervor of those who attacked the Capitol on 1/6, you weren’t paying attention. These folks invariably show their contempt for the courts and the rule of law.

  2. Thompson, Raskin, and Lofgren are solid. Luria and Murphy very talented …and found the fast rise. Aguilar is an interesting choice, I don’t want to see any waffling. Schiff, will push for expediency , but not without merit. If he and Raskin are in agreement about something, it is solid. If Lofgren approves, it is a lock. If Thompson oversees the litigation, it is fairly done.
    Cheney,…{is she looking for absolution?} or ..does she profit from MIC ? Is this a case of disturbing the causation of your father ? Her profile indicates, proper judgement of the path,.. Is she anti-war ? Kinzinger,… what side of intell is he on..I think perhaps, proper training, not upbringing. Active duty or guard people , should not be able to serve as elected officials. Tulsi and Adam are prime examples of military for politics. Guard units, need to focus and so do representatives. 7 years is a good waiting period for military to be eligible to be elected. There is a substantial amount of military training on this committee. But also raw human goodness.
