Insurrection Update #18

My continuing series on the prosecution of those that charged and breached the US Capitol…..some want this to just go away…..that is not gonna happen as long as my fingers continue to work.

We have heard these treasonous slugs try to blame everyone but themselves for the failed coup….even a Trump lawyer is pointing a finger at Pence…..

John Eastman, a lawyer who was working with President Donald Trump to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election, took a moment to scold the vice president’s team while the US Capitol was being attacked. Greg Jacob, Mike Pence’s chief counsel, had already emailed Eastman that a siege was taking place, the Washington Post reports. “The ‘siege’ is because YOU and your boss did not do what was necessary to allow this to be aired in a public way so that the American people can see for themselves what happened,” Eastman wrote back, trying to get Pence to refuse to certify the election results in the name of voter fraud.

At that time on Jan. 6, Pence, Jacob, and others were being guarded in a secure area of the building as rioters ran through the Capitol, some calling for Pence to be hanged. In an unpublished opinion piece Jacob wrote later that month, he said Eastman “displayed a shocking lack of awareness of how those practical implications were playing out in real time.” Jacob said Pence’s team had been on the receiving end of “a barrage of bankrupt legal theories.” In addition to being a legal adviser to Trump, Eastman was a law professor at California’s Chapman University. The school announced his retirement a week after the riot.

Days before the Capitol was overrun, Eastman said on Steve Bannon’s radio show that Pence had the power to kick the election to the House. Eastman said the only question, per CNN, was whether Pence had the “courage and the spine.” Eastman stated his case to Pence, who was not persuaded, and Trump two days later. On Jan. 6, Eastman spoke to the rally outside the White House before the mob marched on the Capitol. Eastman told the Post he did write the emails to Jacob. He said Trump had a right to use “every legal means” to challenge the election, which Eastman said was rife with fraud and irregularities. He told CNN that pushing the vote to the House was just “one of the scenarios” and that he didn’t advise it.

It seems that a Congressional rep promised the insurrectionists were promise a “blanket pardon” for their participating in the failed coup….

A bombshell report published by Rolling Stone on Sunday said that several of the supporters of former President Donald Trump who helped plan the January rallies in D.C. and across the U.S. have been cooperating with the Jan. 6 House Select Committee, and they are alleging that not only did they participate in multiple planning sessions with senior White House staffers and Republican members of Congress, but that they were promised pardons by Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ).

According to Rolling Stone’s Hunter Walker, two of these people spoke to him about these conversations, and the magazine had separately confirmed a third person who helped plan the rallies who was cooperating with the House Select Committee’s investigation.

In the article, Walker refers to his two sources as a rally “organizer” and a “planner” to keep clear the comments from separate people. Both of them were involved in helping plan and coordinate the “Stop the Steal” protests around the country in the aftermath of the 2020 election, which Trump baselessly claimed was stolen from him by election fraud, and the “Stop the Steal” and “March for Trump” rallies in Washington, D.C. on Jan. 5 and, most notably, Jan. 6, which immediately preceded the violent breaching of the Capitol as Vice President Mike Pence and Congress were meeting in a joint session to certify the electoral college votes from the states.

Bombshell Report Says White House Staffers, GOP Members of Congress Met With Jan. 6 Organizers — Even Promised Pardons

Who will be the first to blow the whistle on the whole 06 January operation?

Looks like it may be Heather Shaner…..

Heather Shaner, an attorney representing several MAGA rioters, hinted to NBC News’ Haley Talbot on Friday that one of her clients would soon spill dirt on rally organizers to the House Select Committee investigating the January 6th attack on the Capitol.

While discussing her client’s plans to testify, Shaner said that “we want to see the queens and kings prosecuted not the pawns,” with the implication being that her client could provide information that would help send some higher-ups to jail.

Politico separately reports that Shaner has also arranged for another person who is not one of her clients, but who still has knowledge related to the insurrection, to testify before the committee.

While it’s not known what this individual will tell the committee, Shaner claims that they have information about associates of pro-Trump talk radio host Alex Jones.

Those ‘poor’ souls jailed for their part in the 06 insurrection and are now residing in jails across the country are whining about their accommodations…..now a judge has taken the complaints to heart….

Federal prosecutors are pushing back on claims from U.S. Capitol rioters about conditions in the jail where they’re awaiting trial, and a judge signaled that he’s getting sick of their complaints.

Judge Emmet Sullivan told attorneys he was aware of problems some defendants had accessing evidence they needed to prepare for trial, but he waved away complaints some of them had made about alleged mistreatment, reported CNN.

“They’re running a jail, not a hotel,” Sullivan said. “Some people want hotel services.”

There is one female insurrectionist that thinks she is too white and too blond to be in jail…..

Jenna Ryan is the life-coach-slash-real-estate-agent-turned-insurrectionist who flew on a private jet to Washington DC on January 6, where she and her fellow MAGA jerks stormed the Capitol. Ryan reportedly believed God sent Donald Trump to save America, but she wasn’t trying to sell an insanity defense. Back in January when the insurrectionist-in-chief was still president, she asked for a pardon, which Trump declined to the extent he’s even aware she exists.

Ryan remained confident she wouldn’t do any actual time for her crime. She’d tweeted in March her critical racist theory:

Definitely not going to jail. Sorry I have blonde hair white skin a great job a great future and I’m not going to jail. Sorry to rain on your hater parade. I did nothing wrong.

  1. “It ain’t over until the fat white guy whines…..”

    That reminded me of a retort I made to the better half just the other day as I was heading to the store to see if literally some boat came in to supply me with stuff I need… she said, “I’m out of wine.” I replied, “But that is not true.. a woman always has enough whine.”
    Needless to say my attempt at standup comic levity was unappreciated by the audience.

      1. is this what they mean by ‘soft ball’? No really, last year at this time I was inormef you were the biggest, baddest wolf in these part….who was that demon anyway, who bounced my car in a rest area?
        Anyway, sometime ‘hard ball’ is called for, unless you are one of the priviledged safe and secure old white ‘farts’………..how DO you broker these 2 (or more) realities??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????don’t ask me to learn this soft ball trivializing shit for show , or alternatively, KILL ME!!

  2. These people seem to me to be getting off far too lightly. It will come back to haunt the authorities when they do it again somewhere else.
    Best wishes, Pete.
