House Jan. 6 committee subpoenas retired Army colonel who worked for Trump’s outside legal team
…from the Washington Post
[ Editor’s Note: Mr. Waldron now joins the lineup on the Jan6 Committee’s hit parade. Even better, he had bragged to Mark Meadows that the PowerPoint presentation was the output of a large team, which should generate another batch of subpoenas.
The US military command has been deathly quiet on the potential of any military people found to have been engaged in overthrowing the Biden election facing court martial.
I had contacted one prestigious Veteran Officer Corps organization that had some members fully onboard blocking the Biden certification on the grounds of “saving America from a Biden Communist takeover,” despite the president having a veteran officer corps son.
I mentioned that their thinking was in direct violation of the organization’s oath, which includes …’to defend the country from all enemies, foreign and domestic’.
My gut feel on the Waldron crew is they all were looking for some cozy Trump administration jobs by proving they would serve him above their Constitutional oath.
Hopefully the Pentagon will not want to slide these folks under the rug, as it would set a bad precedent, but I am not holding my breath. The Jan 6 committee continues to uncover more evidence of guilt, with a steady stream of attempts by the perpetrators to hide their communication from investigators. Imagine that.
They must receive the harshest punishment possible under the law as a precedent for future insurrectionists being discouraged from thinking that this is a ‘cool thing to do’, including getting in on the grift… Jim W. Dean ]

The subpoena requested that Waldron appear for a deposition on Jan. 17 and provide documents to the committee by Jan. 10.
“Mr. Waldron reportedly played a role in promoting claims of election fraud and circulating potential strategies for challenging results of the 2020 election,” Rep. Bennie G. Thompson (D-Miss.), the committee’s chairman, said in a statement.
“He was also apparently in communication with officials in the Trump White House and in Congress discussing his theories in the weeks leading up to the January 6th attack. The document he reportedly provided to Administration officials and Members of Congress is an alarming blueprint for overturning a nationwide election.”
…Meadows, according to Waldron, indicated that he would pass the list on to John Ratcliffe, then the director of national intelligence.
