‘Clearly a crime’: Watergate prosecutor says Jan. 6 hearings have presented damning evidence against Trump



Speaking on CNN this Wednesday, former assistant prosecutor in the Watergate scandal, Nick Ackerman, said that testimony before the Jan. 6 committee from Arizona GOP Rep. Rusty Bowers was "definitely" evidence of former President Donald Trump's commission of a crime.

"I mean, what he did with Bowers clearly was a crime," Ackerman said. "And when you combine it with what he did with [Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger], it's a pattern that emerges here with two of the battleground states."

Bowers was the first of several witnesses at Tuesday’s hearing who testified about efforts by Trump and his inner circle to reverse the 2020 election's results by pressuring state officials to put forward false slates of electors.

"[Trump] was just trying to find more votes," Ackerman continued. "He was trying to pull off a coup, and he was trying to do something that was a fraud on the government and also an obstruction of what Congress's due right is under the Electoral College Act."

"No question there is a crime committed here," he added.

Bowers, speaker of the Arizona House of Representatives, also testified that he asked Giuliani "on multiple occasions" for evidence of his stolen election claims.

He told committee members Giuliani said "we've got lots of theories, we just don't have the evidence."

Trump issued a statement, read out during the hearing, attempting to discredit Bowers, calling him a "RINO" -- Republican In Name Only -- and claiming that the lawmaker had told Trump the election was rigged and that Trump had in fact won Arizona.

But Bowers said both claims were false.

FBI executes search warrant on top Nevada Republican — who was a Trump phony elector: report

The investigation into the phony electors scheme by Trump supporters attempting to overturn the 2020 presidential election appeared to escalate on Wednesday.

"FBI agents served a search warrant Wednesday on Nevada’s top GOP official, sources told the 8 News Now I-Team’s George Knapp. Agents seized the cell phone of state Republican chairman Michael McDonald, reportedly as part of an investigation into the fake elector scheme initiated at the end of the 2020 presidential election," KLAS reported. "A second search warrant was issued for state party secretary James DeGraffenreid, who also signed the document, but FBI agents could not locate him Wednesday, sources told Knapp."

The Nevada Republican Party posted a press release and publicity photo that remains on its website:

"Today, the Nevada Republican Presidential Electors convened at the Nevada Legislative Building in our state’s capitol to cast their electoral votes for the rightful victors of Nevada, President Donald J. Trump and Vice President Michael Pence. These electoral votes will be sent to the United State’s Congress where they will be read on January 6th," the Nevada GOP announced on Dec. 14, 2020.

McDonald issued a statement:

“In a historic move, the Nevada Presidential Electors convened in Nevada’s capitol today to cast their 6 electoral votes for President Donald J. Trump and Vice President Michael Pence. The people of Nevada did not have a fair election due to the irregularities and fraud seen throughout the state. With ongoing challenges and evidence left to be meaningfully investigated, we must submit our electoral votes for the rightful victors and allow Congress to make a determination," he said.

They even posted their scheme on social media.

Nevada GOP @NVGOP

Our brave electors standing up for what is right and casting their electoral votes for @realDonaldTrump.

We believe in fair elections and will continue the fight against voter fraud in the Silver State!

Fake elector and Trump staffer in Arizona subpoenaed by the Justice Department as part of election overthrow case

The Justice Department has filed fresh subpoenas for two people allegedly involved in the attempt to overturn the 2020 election, the Washington Post noted Wednesday afternoon.

Ahead of the fifth public hearing for the House Select Committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack and the plot that led up to it, FBI agents were at the home of Georgia lawyer Brad Carver and Thomas Lane, who lives in Virginia.

Carver was among the 16 fake electors that President Donald Trump's campaign recruited to sign off on an official document saying that they were "duly elected and qualified electors." Carver is a proud member of the Republican National Lawyers Association and lobbyist whose firm the Republican Party paid $81,000 to defend Georgia's new voting restrictions.

It was a fluke that Carver was one of the fraudulent electors as he stepped in when four of the 16 Trump "electors" didn't show up for the meeting on Dec. 14, 2020. The electors conducted a ceremony, falsely signed the official documents and sent the papers to Congress and the National Archives.

Carver did have a Twitter account that continues to show up in Google searches but has since been deleted.

Lane worked for Trump's campaign in Arizona and New Mexico. According to his LinkedIn profile, while Lane worked for Trump for President, Inc, from Aug 2020-Jan. 2021. At the same time he was working for the National Republican Senatorial Committee (RSC) as their Election Day Operations Director — Special Projects from Dec. 2020 to Jan. 2021. He began a job as the Election Integrity State Director for Virginia in Aug. 2021.

Despite being employed by the Republican Party in Dec. 2020, someone named Thomas Lane who worked in Republican politics in Arizona in Dec. 2020, testified under oath that he was observing the election vote count on behalf of a campaign opposing Proposition 207, which would legalize recreational cannabis, the Arizona Mirror reported in 2020.

"Thomas Lane was one of a half dozen observers whom Ward’s attorney, Jack Wilenchik, called to the stand. Lane, who was observing on behalf of the campaign opposing Proposition 207, which legalizes recreational marijuana, said he watched election workers mistakenly negate votes for Trump," the report claimed. "He said the software that tries to prefill what it believes to be the voter’s choices generally favored Biden, regardless of what the original ballot said."

Lane claimed that election workers caught and corrected them. He also testified that there were serial numbers used to find duplicated ballots.

As the Post explained, the DOJ released the addresses of the people where they staged the raids and those addresses match the men.

"The precise nature of the information being sought by the Justice Department wasn’t immediately clear; however, Arizona and Georgia officials testified Tuesday to a House panel probing the Jan. 6 attacks about attempts by Trump and his inner circle of advisers to try to reverse Biden’s electoral college victories in those states," the report explained.

There is a list of about 15 other people subpoenaed by the DOJ.

All these Republican criminals are getting hit with DOJ subpoenas for trying to steal the election with fake electors. The DOJ ain't playing around.

Georgia GOP chairman hit with DOJ subpoena in fake elector investigation: report



On Wednesday, CNN reported that the Justice Department has issued a subpoena to Georgia Republican Party Chair David Shafer as part of its investigation into the pro-Trump fake "electors" that were seeking to overturn the 2020 presidential election.

This comes as the DOJ expands its probe, issuing subpoenas to a wide list of GOP officials in multiple states.

"Federal investigators subpoenaed the Georgia Republican Party chairman for information related to the fake elector scheme there — as the Justice Department has issued a fresh round of subpoenas to people from several states who acted as rogue electors after the 2020 presidential election, multiple sources familiar with the situation told CNN," reported Zachary Cohen, Sara Murray, Katelyn Polantz, Evan Perez, and Marshall Cohen. "The subpoena for the chairman, David Shafer, represents a significant step because he played a central role in organizing the fake slate of electors from Georgia and coordinated the effort with the Trump campaign."

Shafer, who has previously stirred controversy by tweeting in support of Russia's Vladimir Putin, signed his name to the slate of fake electors, which experts have argued could open him up to legal jeopardy.

The fake elector scheme was part of a plan detailed in a memo by far-right Trump attorney John Eastman. As part of the plan, Vice President Mike Pence would use the fake electors as proof that several states President Joe Biden won were disputed, and thus discard the real electors, throwing the majority of "counted" electors to Trump.

Experts broadly believed this plan was illegal, and even Eastman himself privately admitted to the former president there was no basis for it in the law.

Two of the reasons for worldwide high gas prices is:

1. Big Oil Price Gouging for profit.

2. Putin's Price Hike which is due to his war in Ukraine.

Right wingers were defending Putin yesterday. They said "Putin had nothing to do" with making gas prices soar. That is a lie.   

Right wing Faux Propaganda hack Sean Hannity was defending Putin on his propaganda program. He was spewing lies that "Joe Biden caused high gas prices" and not Putin.

Tennessee Senator and Putin apologist Marsha Blackburn, sent out several tweets defending Putin and falsely attacking Joe Biden with the same fake GOP talking points.

A President has nothing to do with gas prices, and the fact the entire world is paying record high gas prices when this war in Ukraine started proves that Putin is responsible for world high gas prices. Republicans and the right wing media are trying to gaslight us again just like they do with everything else they lie about.

Check out this graph. As you can see, gas prices began to rise as soon as Putin started assembling troops on the Ukraine border. As soon as he illegally invaded Ukraine, gas prices shot through the roof. So yes, that confirms the Putin Price Hike and debunks the lies coming from the right.   



We learned yesterday, that gas prices are dropping in America. President Biden has asked Congress to suspend the federal gas tax for three months to help ease the cost. It was also reported, that gas prices reached record highs all over the world due to Putin's war. Gas is cheaper in America than most of the world.

Gas prices around the world hit daily records, putting famous London cab drivers out of work

Gas prices fall ahead of busy July 4th travel weekend
https://www.cbsnews.com/news/gas-prices-5-a-gallon-fuel-stations-travel-holiday/

Another nail in the right wing propaganda coffin is this article from back in February, where experts were worried that Putin's war in Ukraine would make gas prices soar to $4 a gallon. And that is exactly what happened, except it increased to $5.

Putin's War Spikes Oil and Natural Gas Prices
Gasoline may reach an average of $4 per gallon.
2/24/22
https://reason.com/2022/02/24/putins-war-spikes-oil-and-natural-gas-prices/

Well, another right wing conspiracy has been easily debunked.

Putin's war in Ukraine spiked gas prices all over the world. High gas prices has nothing to do with Joe Biden as right wing Republicans and media hacks are lying about.

These are the same fraudsters who were lying about bogus "election fraud" saying that Criminal Donald won the 2020 election. They tried to help him steal it. So why would you believe anything these same right wingers have to say about gas prices?

These right wingers are fraudulent liars who lie about Joe Biden because they still want Criminal Donald back in the White House.

They have been proven to be liars again with factual documented evidence that debunks their lies.

‘Positively unglued’ Arizona GOP boss is livid Rusty Bowers testified against Trump: report



The Arizona Republican Party is in disarray after GOP House Speaker Rusty Bowers publicly testified about Donald Trump's coup attempt before the House Select Committee Investigating the Jan. 6 Attack on the U.S. Capitol.

"State GOP Chairwoman Kelli Ward has come positively unglued over Bowers’ testimony before the House Select committee investigating the Jan. 6 insurrection, wherein he reminded us that there are still are Republicans who haven’t lost their ever living minds. Or their integrity," Arizona Republic columnist Laurie Roberts wrote. "In the last 24 hours, Ward has demeaned Bowers, belittled him and even embraced her inner fifth grade bully and given him a nickname: 'Rusty Bowels.'"

Roberts noted that even though she is chair of the party, she had endorsed Bowers' primary opponent.

"Let me say that again. The head of the Arizona Republican Party has taken sides in an Arizona Republican primary. Just as she’s in the bag for a Trump-endorsed Kari Lake in what amounts to a three-way Republican primary," Roberts wrote. "Other, more professional party operatives will tell you that never happens. The party’s role, they will tell you, is to remain neutral as the candidates duke it out a primary, then unite voters behind the party’s nominee."

Ward is backing former state Sen. David Farnsworth, who was one of 29 legislators who urged Mike Pence to accept their phony slate of electors.

Roberts noted a tweet where she suggested Bowers may have been bribed into not overturning the election.

"This guy has no idea what happened in Arizona’s 2020 election because he covered his eyes, plugged his ears, probably opened his wallet and let election fraud happen on his watch," she wrote.

Republican Sen. T.J. Shope publicly called out Ward.

"I’ve known Rusty for many years now and was honored to serve as his Speaker Pro Tempore. He’s a gentleman and a statesman of the highest order. The person quote-tweeted here is a maniacal Chair breaking rules endorsing candidates in a Primary and hellbent on destroying the GOP," he wrote.

Ward defended herself on Twitter claiming that intelligent people says “She’s an influential, motivated, relentless Chair determined to save Arizona & America.”

She did not list any of the "intelligent people" who are describing her in such a manner.

Fox News host left shocked by Jan. 6 hearing: 'Stunning' lack of evidence for Trump's fraud claims



Fox News host Martha MacCallum claimed after Tuesday's hearing of the House select committee on Jan. 6 that there was a "stunning" lack of evidence to back up Donald Trump's baseless claims of election fraud – a far cry from the channel's election-denying rhetoric leading up to the Capitol riot.

"It will be extremely useful in coming campaigns, especially the presidential, when you look back at what we have in terms of the Mike Pence part of all of this," MacCallum said in a broadcast this week. "So it is a political discussion. It is very compelling and the lack of evidence is the huge, stunning, clear moment here where these people are saying, 'Look I supported you, please give me something to work with,' and it simply doesn't materialize."

MacCallum also added that she suspects Democrats will attempt to break up GOP allegiances by calling Trump's bogus election claims into question.

The host's comments came after new testimony by Arizona House Speaker Rusty Bowers, a longtime state Republican who refused to allow Trump to challenge the 2020 elections results in the Grand Canyon State.

During his testimony, Bowers claimed that ex-Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani repeatedly pressured the lawmaker to do Trump's bidding and promised to provide evidence of widespread fraud. That evidence, he said, never materialized. "My recollection, [Giuliani] said, 'We've got lots of theories, we just don't have the evidence,'" Bowers claimed.

MacCallum's comments are also a significant deviation from the network's rhetoric in the months leading up to the Capitol riot. After Trump's loss, Fox News pundits repeatedly sowed doubt over the results of the 2020 election, and in particular, the integrity of Dominion and Smartmatic's voting machines, which were used to tabulate the votes in dozens of states across the country. Fox News' effort to delegitimize those machines has since become the subject of several multi-billion-dollar lawsuits by both companies alleging that their products were defamed by Fox News and a number of Trump allies.

Up until now, MacCallum has not directly weighed in on Donald Trump's failed conspiracy to overturn the 2020 election.

However, just after the January 6 attack, which was largely incited by the former president's spurious claims of fraud, MacCallum called the riot "a huge victory for these protesters."

"They have disrupted the system in an enormous way!" she beamed during a broadcast at the time, later comparing the insurrection to a peaceful protest organized outside the residence of Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo.
