From The ‘Can’t Fix Stupid’ Files…..
Now that there is a Select Committee that is investigating the failed coup attempt by followers of that ‘other guy’…….the GOP leadership and members are trying to intimidate companies that cooperate with the investigation.
Some members have sent a letter to Yahoo threatening them if they turn over records to the committee……the problem is…….
Eleven Republican lawmakers sent a letter to Yahoo urging the company not to cooperate with a House investigation into the Jan. 6 insurrection, except they addressed it to a CEO who left more than four years ago.
The lawmakers, including Reps. Mo Brooks (of Alabama), Madison Cawthorn (N.C), Marjorie Taylor Greene (Ga.), Paul Gosar (Ariz.) and Lauren Boebert (Colo.), sent letters to 13 businesses telling them not to comply with requests from the House select committee investigating the events of Jan. 6.
The committee requested that certain phone and social media companies preserve the records of individuals not publicly identified as linked to the insurrection as well as those involved in the “Stop the Steal” rally. The House probe is attempting to determine who was actively involved in planning the violence aimed at overturning the presidential election. Some of the relevant subjects could involve Republican lawmakers, including some of those who sent the letters.
Almost daily the GOP proves the point of ‘Can’t Fix Stupid’……
But I ask….was this the GOP being stupid or was it paid for by companies to give them cover?
I trust corporation much less than I mistrust the politicians in the GOP…..
