"By a vote of 51-49, the Republican-controlled Senate stopped Democrats' drive to hear testimony from witnesses like former national security adviser John Bolton, who is thought to have first-hand knowledge of Trump's efforts to pressure Ukraine to investigate a political rival, former Vice President Joe Biden."

"Two Republicans — Susan Collins of Maine and Mitt Romney of Utah — joined all 47 Senate Democrats in voting for the motion. Two potential GOP swing votes, Sen. Lamar Alexander of Tennessee and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, stuck with their party, ensuring that the Democratic motion was defeated."

It's understandably confusing since the guy was impeached twice

Yup, an absolutely infuriating moment, but Biden needed bis Cabinet and the first hundred days are important.

Quote :
" The third Jan. 6 committee hearing scheduled for Wednesday has been postponed to an as-yet unknown day, the panel said in a statement Tuesday.

The committee's release does not offer an explanation, but a source familiar said the move was a result of scheduling conflicts.

The committee's next hearing will take place Thursday at 1 p.m. ET, followed by a meeting next Tuesday, June 21 at 1 p.m. ET and then Thursday, June 23 at 1 p.m. ET."

I like how, at the the 2:25 mark, passersby stop so that they don't walk in front of the guy's photograph.

Quote :
"The leaders of the House Jan. 6 committee say they plan to invite Ginni Thomas, the wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, to speak to the committee in the wake of reporting by the Washington Post that the committee has evidence of Thomas communicating with lawyer John Eastman.

Eastman was central to a pressure campaign against then-Vice President Pence to reject the election results when Congress convened on Jan. 6 to count the Electoral College vote, committee Chairman Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., and vice chair Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., say. Thompson told this to reporters on Capitol Hill and Cheney's view was confirmed to NPR's Deirdre Walsh by an aide.

It's unclear if they will first ask for voluntary appearance or a closed door deposition, or send a subpoena.

Ginni Thomas was previously revealed to have been in touch with Trump White House chief of staff Mark Meadows via text message between the election and Jan. 6. At the time of those revelations, Thompson had said he would recommend the committee ask Thomas to appear before them, but didn't make a request. Some members of the committee have said that Thomas didn't play a significant role ahead of Jan. 6 before the latest reports emerged Wednesday night.

The Supreme Court rejected an 11th-hour effort by Trump allies to have it step in during the legal fight over the election results, during which dozens of lower court cases were almost all decided against Trump. However, Justice Thomas and Justice Samuel Alito disagreed with that decision. Thomas was also the lone dissenter when the Supreme Court ruled against Trump as he sought to have his White House records shielded from the Jan. 6 committee investigation."

Judge Luttigs speaking style is hard to listen to. I don’t think having him drone on is doing this hearing many favors

Haha, I mean it’s not just slow, but also hard to follow where he’s going or what point he’s trying to make (which is exacerbated by it being so slow)

In a court of public opinion, charisma matters unfortunately

Hopefully this is more than just that though

They trotted this guy out to speak directly to all of the sniveling Conservative lawyers that seem to occupy every corner of the federal bureaucracy. You know, all the OTHER Jeffrey Clarks and John Eastmans spawning out of the federalist society’s Ivy League programs every year. This guy is a conservative lawyer rock star, a federal court judge long enough that his office became a conduit for Supreme Court clerks, himself a clerk for Scalia, legal counsel for several Republican presidents, even helped Boeing navigate corporate liability. But give the guy credit, he called a coup a coup and I hope some of these other dbags heard that loud and clear.

[Edited on June 16, 2022 at 6:23 PM. Reason : The Bill Barrs and Jeffrey Rosens need to hear from this guy too, I kinda doubt they were angels]

Mike Pence has zero chance for a political future in today's Republican Party. He's deluding himself. He stood firm on January 6th and did the right thing, and for that I'm appreciative. Why can't he just give up on his impossible political aspirations and fully cooperate with the committee to bring out the whole ugly truth? The guy almost got lynched. If he wants to do what is best for the country, the path forward seems clear. He would have greater historical significance in doing this than being a one-term VP yes-man associated with a disgraced regime. I guess I don't get political logic. It's obvious he's toast to the Trump base.
