    Tomorrow’s hearing has been delayed due to the hurricane.

    I am honestly having trouble imagining what could be in the 1/6 call logs that would be worse than what we already know.

    Person #1: "You know that pipe bomb you planted near the Capitol?"

    Person #2: "Yeah."

    Person #1: "They found it. It didn't go off."

    Person #2: :(

    Sure, there are things that could be worse ... but most of them aren't all that plausible based on what we already know.

    We know that Trump was delighted at seeing "his people" fighting for him. I guess it's conceivable that we could find he placed a call to somebody involved in the riot urging them to give Mike Pence a scare, or to delay the certification by any means necessary, but a lot of testimony has already come out that doesn't include that, from people who really didn't have anything left to lose. So he would have to have played it pretty close to the vest, which is not Trump's strong suit.

    Trump: Put me on conference call with Putey, Orbuns, and my main squeeze Kim.

    Hey guys, thanks for joining the party call.

    Is this how you did it? Any hints or tips? Thanks!

    I mean, yes, it should be implausible, but there is literally no bottom with this asshat.

    Aren't call logs moreso a record that certain phone numbers made outgoing calls to other phone numbers on certain days and times, and how long each call lasted? What you're describing sounds more like a wire tap (unless the White House actually does record calls as part of their call logs).

    Unfortunately it appears that the specific missing texts from the 5th and 6th remain missing. I read that a few days ago - hopefully I'm wrong about that.

    The footage from the Jan 6th meeting today was powerful, including watching the Senate and House Leadership trying to get law enforcement to the capital. And three separate witnesses stating that Trump did indeed know he lost the election.

    It ended with a unanimous vote by the committee to subpoena Trump to testify under oath.

    Kinzinger's tweet on it afterwards:

    Trump knew the truth; he’d lost the election. He made the deliberate choice to ignore the courts, the Department of Justice, campaign leadership, senior advisors, & pursue an unlawful effort to overturn the election. His intent was plain—ignore the rule of law to stay in power.

    Makes me wonder if they’ve got some kind of audio or video of Trump saying something highly incriminating that they plan on playing in front of him.

    Still infuriating that they're finally calling on Trump to testify now, on their last scheduled meeting before the midterms. If the Democrats lose their majority in November, you know Trump will have no trouble stalling long enough to run out the clock.

    I prefer ex-presidents who don't get subpoenaed by a Congressional commission investigating an insurrection.

    Pelosi on Jan 6th, hearing that the Secret Service has stopped Trump from marching on the Capitol with the insurrectionists.

    "I hope he comes. I want to punch him out. I'll punch him out, I'll go to jail, and I'll be happy."

    She was also concerned about Pences safety in another clip, probably after they where made aware of the "hang mike pence" chants...

    imagine how messy it would've been if they'd been allowed to be armed/CC in DC?

    the 2A has come full circle from a defense against tyranny to being the means by which it might have been achieved.
