Constitutional law professor Jonathan Turley, at the conclusion of Monday’s hearing, said the committee appeared to be trying to “lay the foundation” for what they’ve claimed was an attempted coup. But what this really seems to be is a sort of “persona non grata” trial, he said, intended to show that Trump is “a horrible person.”

Turley laughed at something that happened at the end on Monday that he said “sort of put a pin on it” regarding the outrageously one-sided nature of these hearings. “The most telling moment,” he said, was when the chairman said he was going to “introduce this video, unless there is an objection.” Of course, everyone knew there would not be an objection! Who could imagine Liz Cheney suddenly rising to her feet and saying, “Wait, this seems unfair! Maybe we need to look at other evidence to be introduced as well!” That will not be happening.

“..This sort of emphasized,” he said, “there ISN’T anyone to object.”

He’s right --- we won’t be seeing any Perry Mason-like moment when someone in the room lets conscience prevail and tearfully sputters, “I confess! We’re all guilty! This hearing is a sham! We just couldn’t help ourselves!” These people don’t have consciences.

Turley observed that this one-sidedness is a “signature move,” a “fairly common practice” by Speaker Pelosi. She “muscles through, to get the conclusion she wants.” In the first Trump impeachment, for example, she “decided to forego investigation in the Judiciary Committee and the calling of essential witnesses.” In the second impeachment, “she did one better: she had a ‘snap impeachment,’ with no hearings at all.” I would add that she had to move lightning-fast because at that point, Trump was practically out the door. She had to get in just one more impeachment before he left!

But Turley isn’t so sure she’ll get the conclusion she wants. Other than hard-core anti-Trumpers, people will see that there’s no other side presented, the ‘other side’ being not that violent protest was a good thing but that key issues such as the deliberately lax security at the Capitol are not being examined at all.

He also made the point that through all the chaos, the system actually “did actually work to some extent.” Well, it worked in that power was indeed transferred; that’s about all that can be said for it.

We would add that to support their desired conclusion, Liz Cheney had to lie, saying, for example, “Donald Trump did not condemn the attack,” when he did –- unequivocally –- in a heartfelt Oval Office address. Read what he said at the link, here. He also condemned the violence on Twitter; Twitter blocked him. Cheney is a bald-faced liar, but, by design, there was no one at the hearing to point out her lies.

(By the way, as of this writing, President Biden has yet to condemn the unlawful protests at Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s home or even the aborted attempt to kill him, which most of the media have ignored as well. Kayleigh McEnany and I spoke about this, and the double standard of justice in general, on last night’’s HANNITY.)

Legal analyst Andrew C. McCarthy said Monday’s hearing was a “much tighter production” than Thursday because it had one theme: Trump must have KNOWN the election was not stolen because those around him were “telling him it was nonsense.” That’s a compelling story to tell, but they’ve set it up in a way that's "not a fair process that’s aimed at getting to the truth and giving whatever contra-arguments there are their day in court.”

So, it’s “more like messaging than it is like a real investigation," he said. No kidding. “I could have been very impressive in court if there were no defense lawyers, you know?” he laughed. “You let the government put on its own case, own witnesses, own exhibits, and then no cross-examination and no defense arguments; I’d have been 1,000-and-0.”

He later said he did not think they’re doing this to stop Trump from running again –- he thinks they might even prefer that he run –- but to set up the case against Trump in case he does. They also want to deliver what they hope would be “the predicates” for criminal prosecution against him. McCarthy is concerned that Biden’s DOJ has been giving in to “the loudest voices on the progressive left” and that a Trump prosecution is what they want, no matter how it divides the country.

Monday evening, Brit Hume echoed what McCarthy had observed, saying that the Democrats might find out “they’ve done the Republican Party a great service” if they stain Trump too much for him to run again. “Because I think many Republicans think they can’t win with Trump at the head of the ticket again. They’re afraid of his supporters --- don’t want to come out against him directly, but they’d like him to go away. If the effect of this committee is to make his possible candidacy go away, I think a great many Republicans would privately be very glad.”

That thought is consistent with our new poll, which, in breaking news, has just concluded and shows a very strong preference for DeSantis over Trump, 56.6 percent to 42.2 percent. (For “someone else,” 2.1 percent.)

Even so, I’d like to think that if Hume had had time to elaborate, he would also have said that, to any conservative, the Democrats’ flagrant abuse of the system to achieve that goal is far too great a price to pay.

But maybe the Democrat’s main goal is something else entirely. According to top Democrat strategist Murshed Zaheed, the primary purpose is “fundraising for a lot of the Democratic Party institutions and establishments.” What the heck, they spent $8 million of YOUR MONEY on this extravaganza, and they’re expecting a big payoff on that investment! Zaheed’s tweets will give you a good “inside” view.

Oh, and here's a bit of good news:  Last week, my writers said they would much rather have been watching the re-run of “Young Sheldon” that normally would have run on CBS Thursday night. The ratings are in, and, according to the WASHINGTON FREE BEACON, the January 6 hearing actually did worse in the ratings than the “Young Sheldon” re-run that had aired the previous week. Of course, my writers still wish they could have watched “Young Sheldon," along with just about anything else that would have been on afterwards. That was 2-1/2 hours of their lives they’ll never get back.

Former Texas Rep. Ron Paul elaborates:

………………………..

One last thing, about Bill Barr. You already know that Democrats have been exploiting clips of him expressing doubt early on about 2020 election fraud. (NOTE:  We could cherry-pick other quotes that give the opposite impression of his view on fraud.)  Barr laughed heartily at the mention of Dinesh D’Souza’s documentary 2,000 MULES, saying he was not impressed. D’Souza shot back at him in a series of insulting tweets, calling Barr ignorant about geotracking –- which, ironically, was used to find the precise location of January 6 protesters –- and saying, “I’d be happy to appear before the committee and debunk all the debunkers. Let’s settle the issue of who’s perpetrating the ‘big lie’ through open debate...With Bill Barr and Liz Cheney ranting today about the documentary, it’s the perfect occasion to watch 2,000 MULES and see for yourself what the brouhaha is about.”

That we’d love to see. But we never will.

    I hope that question is rhetorical involving Jan 6 hoax committee meeting, regarding some fools acting foolish on inaugural day, to bad summer of 2020 isn't investigated by law enforcement so politicians end up in jail, but onto President Trump's attempted coupe part 4, yes, they are trying to block him by using political rules the two parties have put upon we the people over the last two hundred years. I blame both parties, democrats for being dishonest and having evil usurping intentions and the republicans for weak support of a non politician like Trump, that wants to get "stuff" done at a pace lawyers and lawyer politicians do not want to do. Most are career politicians one and done and vague promises of a future issue being resolved, maybe.

    Case in point, civil rights, who promised then to fix equal rights for all and didn't do it fifty years later? Chicago has been run by democrats for 100 years, the two Daleys, father and son were not dixiecrats. Chicago still has redlining . Saul Alinsky famed communist, who did he sue? Chicago Housing Authority. Democrats, Daley shoot to kill orders at the democratic convention 1968.

    I could go on and on, Illinois an equal opportunity incarceration of politicians state as many republicans and democrats have been indicted and/or jailed.

    Authorities Seize $90,000 from 'Journalist' Paid by CNN, Allege He Actually Encouraged and Emboldened Rioters. A man name John Earle Sullivan, who painted himself as an innocent, independent journalist when he captured the most violent scenes amid the Jan. 6 breach of the U.S. Capitol Building has been hit with additional charges and seen $90,000 in assets seized for selling his footage to media outlets.
    He claimed to have entered the Capitol with the intention of recording the rioters, yet quickly gained notoriety in the days that followed for his history of far-left, anti-police activism that included charges of rioting, threats of violence, and criminal mischief in his home state of Utah.
    In a February 2021 court hearing, Sullivan’s lawyers submitted invoices showing CNN and NBC each paid him $35,000 for the rights to his footage. My question is “Why isn't NBC and CNN being charged as accomplices after the fact when they paid for this footage and then misled the public as to what was happening and who was involved.”

    I am 100% for President Trump. Never in my lifetime have we had a President like President Trump. He truly loved America and her people. I really knew that he cared for "We the People" I have never felt like that in my 70 years of watching Presidents come and go. I watch all his Rallies because the crowds are full of LOVE for America. He did all that he promised to do as President and he did it fast compared to other presidents. I have a great respect for Gov.Ron De Santis, sometime I even wish I lived in Florida. My perfect Republican ticket would be Trump for President and De Santis for Vice Pres. And then De Santis for 8 years as President. That would be a good few years for America and her people. Thank you so much for letting me share my thoughts. It breaks my heart to see whats going on in our Wonderful Country of Freedom
    May God Bless America,

    It is so discouraging to see this committee which is so one sided…why did Republicans not stand up & object to this committee. Spending foolishly, no representation on Trumps side it’s ludicrous. How can people continue to believe this. I get so angry. Do I want Trump to run again no I don’t think so. Too much baggage. But, we need his support of course. DeSantis would be my bet. I love him for being strong & not afraid!! God Bless him. People like you Mike, to speak the truth. God Bless you & your family. ????????????

    Bill Barr has not repented to God yet for his lies. A few months ago Barr was on an interview with Brett Baier; could not get through to Barr directly, so I went through Baier on Fox and asked Baier to tell Barr I called him a "Lying crumb bum" and that "God would judge". From comments made later on Fox, I believe Brett Baier did me the favor and relayed the message to Barr! Good - and thank the Lord!

Monday evening, Brit Hume echoed what McCarthy had observed, saying that the Democrats might find out “they’ve done the Republican Party a great service” if they stain Trump too much for him to run again. “Because I think many Republicans think they can’t win with Trump at the head of the ticket again. They’re afraid of his supporters --- don’t want to come out against him directly, but they’d like him to go away. If the effect of this committee is to make his possible candidacy go away, I think a great many Republicans would privately be very glad.”

That thought is consistent with our new poll, which, in breaking news, has just concluded and shows a very strong preference for DeSantis over Trump, 56.6 percent to 42.2 percent. (For “someone else,” 2.1 percent.)

Even so, I’d like to think that if Hume had had time to elaborate, he would also have said that, to any conservative, the Democrats’ flagrant abuse of the system to achieve that goal is far too great a price to pay.

But maybe the Democrat’s main goal is something else entirely. According to top Democrat strategist Murshed Zaheed, the primary purpose is “fundraising for a lot of the Democratic Party institutions and establishments.” What the heck, they spent $8 million of YOUR MONEY on this extravaganza, and they’re expecting a big payoff on that investment! Zaheed’s tweets will give you a good “inside” view.

Oh, and here's a bit of good news:  Last week, my writers said they would much rather have been watching the re-run of “Young Sheldon” that normally would have run on CBS Thursday night. The ratings are in, and, according to the WASHINGTON FREE BEACON, the January 6 hearing actually did worse in the ratings than the “Young Sheldon” re-run that had aired the previous week. Of course, my writers still wish they could have watched “Young Sheldon," along with just about anything else that would have been on afterwards. That was 2-1/2 hours of their lives they’ll never get back.

………………………..

One last thing, about Bill Barr. You already know that Democrats have been exploiting clips of him expressing doubt early on about 2020 election fraud. (NOTE:  We could cherry-pick other quotes that give the opposite impression of his view on fraud.)  Barr laughed heartily at the mention of Dinesh D’Souza’s documentary 2,000 MULES, saying he was not impressed. D’Souza shot back at him in a series of insulting tweets, calling Barr ignorant about geotracking –- which, ironically, was used to find the precise location of January 6 protesters –- and saying, “I’d be happy to appear before the committee and debunk all the debunkers. Let’s settle the issue of who’s perpetrating the ‘big lie’ through open debate...With Bill Barr and Liz Cheney ranting today about the documentary, it’s the perfect occasion to watch 2,000 MULES and see for yourself what the brouhaha is about.”

That we’d love to see. But we never will.

    I hope that question is rhetorical involving Jan 6 hoax committee meeting, regarding some fools acting foolish on inaugural day, to bad summer of 2020 isn't investigated by law enforcement so politicians end up in jail, but onto President Trump's attempted coupe part 4, yes, they are trying to block him by using political rules the two parties have put upon we the people over the last two hundred years. I blame both parties, democrats for being dishonest and having evil usurping intentions and the republicans for weak support of a non politician like Trump, that wants to get "stuff" done at a pace lawyers and lawyer politicians do not want to do. Most are career politicians one and done and vague promises of a future issue being resolved, maybe.

    Case in point, civil rights, who promised then to fix equal rights for all and didn't do it fifty years later? Chicago has been run by democrats for 100 years, the two Daleys, father and son were not dixiecrats. Chicago still has redlining . Saul Alinsky famed communist, who did he sue? Chicago Housing Authority. Democrats, Daley shoot to kill orders at the democratic convention 1968.

    I could go on and on, Illinois an equal opportunity incarceration of politicians state as many republicans and democrats have been indicted and/or jailed.

    Authorities Seize $90,000 from 'Journalist' Paid by CNN, Allege He Actually Encouraged and Emboldened Rioters. A man name John Earle Sullivan, who painted himself as an innocent, independent journalist when he captured the most violent scenes amid the Jan. 6 breach of the U.S. Capitol Building has been hit with additional charges and seen $90,000 in assets seized for selling his footage to media outlets.
    He claimed to have entered the Capitol with the intention of recording the rioters, yet quickly gained notoriety in the days that followed for his history of far-left, anti-police activism that included charges of rioting, threats of violence, and criminal mischief in his home state of Utah.
    In a February 2021 court hearing, Sullivan’s lawyers submitted invoices showing CNN and NBC each paid him $35,000 for the rights to his footage. My question is “Why isn't NBC and CNN being charged as accomplices after the fact when they paid for this footage and then misled the public as to what was happening and who was involved.”

    Well, I did not want President Trump to put Barr in, as there was something about him that I did not like, and now I cannot stand him at all! Then there is Rino, Liz, but then she hates President Trump and her Father probably does too, so what do we expect from a Hateful Rino!

    I am 100% for President Trump. Never in my lifetime have we had a President like President Trump. He truly loved America and her people. I really knew that he cared for "We the People" I have never felt like that in my 70 years of watching Presidents come and go. I watch all his Rallies because the crowds are full of LOVE for America. He did all that he promised to do as President and he did it fast compared to other presidents. I have a great respect for Gov.Ron De Santis, sometime I even wish I lived in Florida. My perfect Republican ticket would be Trump for President and De Santis for Vice Pres. And then De Santis for 8 years as President. That would be a good few years for America and her people. Thank you so much for letting me share my thoughts. It breaks my heart to see whats going on in our Wonderful Country of Freedom
    May God Bless America,

    It is so discouraging to see this committee which is so one sided…why did Republicans not stand up & object to this committee. Spending foolishly, no representation on Trumps side it’s ludicrous. How can people continue to believe this. I get so angry. Do I want Trump to run again no I don’t think so. Too much baggage. But, we need his support of course. DeSantis would be my bet. I love him for being strong & not afraid!! God Bless him. People like you Mike, to speak the truth. God Bless you & your family. ????????????

    Bill Barr has not repented to God yet for his lies. A few months ago Barr was on an interview with Brett Baier; could not get through to Barr directly, so I went through Baier on Fox and asked Baier to tell Barr I called him a "Lying crumb bum" and that "God would judge". From comments made later on Fox, I believe Brett Baier did me the favor and relayed the message to Barr! Good - and thank the Lord!

    I believe smart move would be Prez Trump 4 years followed by DeSantis 8 years. That’s 12 years to clean out the swamp.

June 14, 2022

Constitutional law professor Jonathan Turley, at the conclusion of Monday’s hearing, said the committee appeared to be trying to “lay the foundation” for what they’ve claimed was an attempted coup. But what this really seems to be is a sort of “persona non grata” trial, he said, intended to show that Trump is “a horrible person.”

Turley laughed at something that happened at the end on Monday that he said “sort of put a pin on it” regarding the outrageously one-sided nature of these hearings. “The most telling moment,” he said, was when the chairman said he was going to “introduce this video, unless there is an objection.” Of course, everyone knew there would not be an objection! Who could imagine Liz Cheney suddenly rising to her feet and saying, “Wait, this seems unfair! Maybe we need to look at other evidence to be introduced as well!” That will not be happening.

“..This sort of emphasized,” he said, “there ISN’T anyone to object.”

He’s right --- we won’t be seeing any Perry Mason-like moment when someone in the room lets conscience prevail and tearfully sputters, “I confess! We’re all guilty! This hearing is a sham! We just couldn’t help ourselves!” These people don’t have consciences.

Turley observed that this one-sidedness is a “signature move,” a “fairly common practice” by Speaker Pelosi. She “muscles through, to get the conclusion she wants.” In the first Trump impeachment, for example, she “decided to forego investigation in the Judiciary Committee and the calling of essential witnesses.” In the second impeachment, “she did one better: she had a ‘snap impeachment,’ with no hearings at all.” I would add that she had to move lightning-fast because at that point, Trump was practically out the door. She had to get in just one more impeachment before he left!

But Turley isn’t so sure she’ll get the conclusion she wants. Other than hard-core anti-Trumpers, people will see that there’s no other side presented, the ‘other side’ being not that violent protest was a good thing but that key issues such as the deliberately lax security at the Capitol are not being examined at all.

He also made the point that through all the chaos, the system actually “did actually work to some extent.” Well, it worked in that power was indeed transferred; that’s about all that can be said for it.

We would add that to support their desired conclusion, Liz Cheney had to lie, saying, for example, “Donald Trump did not condemn the attack,” when he did –- unequivocally –- in a heartfelt Oval Office address. Read what he said at the link, here. He also condemned the violence on Twitter; Twitter blocked him. Cheney is a bald-faced liar, but, by design, there was no one at the hearing to point out her lies.

https://www.newsmax.com/newsfront/donald-trump-liz-cheney-fact-check-condemn/2022/06/09/id/1073784/

(By the way, as of this writing, President Biden has yet to condemn the unlawful protests at Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s home or even the aborted attempt to kill him, which most of the media have ignored as well. Kayleigh McEnany and I spoke about this, and the double standard of justice in general, on last night’’s HANNITY.)

Legal analyst Andrew C. McCarthy said Monday’s hearing was a “much tighter production” than Thursday because it had one theme: Trump must have KNOWN the election was not stolen because those around him were “telling him it was nonsense.” That’s a compelling story to tell, but they’ve set it up in a way that's "not a fair process that’s aimed at getting to the truth and giving whatever contra-arguments there are their day in court.”

So, it’s “more like messaging than it is like a real investigation," he said. No kidding. “I could have been very impressive in court if there were no defense lawyers, you know?” he laughed. “You let the government put on its own case, own witnesses, own exhibits, and then no cross-examination and no defense arguments; I’d have been 1,000-and-0.”

He later said he did not think they’re doing this to stop Trump from running again –- he thinks they might even prefer that he run –- but to set up the case against Trump in case he does. They also want to deliver what they hope would be “the predicates” for criminal prosecution against him. McCarthy is concerned that Biden’s DOJ has been giving in to “the loudest voices on the progressive left” and that a Trump prosecution is what they want, no matter how it divides the country.
