[ Editor’s Note: As I had mentioned some months ago, yes we have the Jan6 Committee doing its comprehensive investigation of Jan6, but at the end of the day, their fate is going to rest in the hands of the judges.
And that goes all the way up the line to the Supreme Court, where Clarence Thomas is now being mentioned as a behind the scenes co-conspirator with his wife’s involvement, via Mark Meadows, in supporting the coup.
Judge Tim Kelly landed another blow on the Republican National Committee in a ruling that it has to turn over its data on fundraising emails from election day to the inauguration, based on claiming the election was stolen as a fundraising booster tool.
The foundation for the coup was the bedrock for all aspects of the Trump Steal that followed, where we are seeing a widening net of potential conspirators and perpetrators in the worst attack on our democracy in recent history.
Not mentioned below is that, despite the first batch of text messages and now leaked recordings which show what initially appeared to be sincere anger by the Repub Party crew over the Trump riot, within days their concern for saving our democracy went into the back seat, and saving their own political hides became their number one objective.
And you can see in hindsight now that they have focused on keeping Trump around to make sure they can ride his base into full control of Congress, and eventually the presidency in 2024, and with someone new besides Trump.
Their oath of office is now clearly revealed to be something they give to themselves, to do whatever is best for their political careers… Jim W. Dean ]

A federal judge late Sunday resoundingly supported the Jan. 6 select committee’s effort to obtain internal Republican National Committee data about efforts to fundraise off claims that the 2020 election was stolen.
In a landmark ruling rejecting an RNC lawsuit, U.S. District Court Judge Tim Kelly said the select committee had demonstrated its need for the party’s data on its fundraising emails between Nov. 3, 2020, and Jan. 6, 2021 — when the RNC and Trump campaign sent supporters messages falsely suggesting the election was stolen. The committee contends those emails helped sow the seeds of the violence that erupted on Jan. 6.
Kelly ruled that the select committee had narrowly tailored its request only to a set of records that would reveal the impact of the RNC’s efforts, alongside Trump, to fundraise off claims the 2020 election was stolen.
“That two-month window is plainly relevant to its investigation into the causes of the January 6 attack,” Kelly wrote.

How hypocritical when writing about “coups” and “insurrection” while ignoring FISAgate and the coordinated destruction of American cities prior to the election supported by Nancy Pelosi as evidenced by the intel gathered from her “stolen” laptop and while we’re on the subject of laptops shall I mention the blatant election interference by big tech and the media that suppressed the revelations of the Bidens connections to Ukraine that involved funding Biolabs there.
Like I said, the hidden hand. Electioneering is the name of the game. 2 right wing psyco parties, same owners. Star Trek episodes where Kirk finds rulers of planets making people fight for pleasure comes to mind😅
The hand is not hidden at all. In the attempts to usurp the peoples will and governance, the RNC and their donors are well known. The list is irrefutable. Watergate, Iran Contra, 9/11, stolen 2000 election, Iraq war lies, Afghanistan and Opium, Insurrection, Covid.
There is no mystery to any of it, unless one is in complete denial. The religious extremist party, would eliminate our democracy at it’s earliest possible chance. They have been attempting to do so for many decades. It is not a trail of breadcrumbs, it is a trail of body parts and blood and lies. Their icon is a tortured man nailed to a post. Shiskabob consciousness.
There seems to be a lot more to this than can be imagined. There is talk that there were some in that group shouting in the Ukrainian language.
The hidden hand, as usual, controls, threatens, invests and benefits from both sides-divide and conquer as usual.
