The Jan. 6 Committee Is ‘Sitting On Some Pretty Good Content’
[ Editor’s Note: Today we learn, due to the usual leaks, that the undiscussed huge amount of video interview material the January 6 Committee has from cooperating witnesses from inside the White House and on Congressional staffs could be the explosive news that America will never forget.
This testimony will show that not everyone on the inside was in the bag, even though they were near these events, which will end up being a good thing for us. It will give us an idea of how the material could impact juries.
This will be followed by later testimony from flippers, who would rather do a few years in a Federal country club prison than a hard 20 years for an Insurrection rap.
This will be just the first wave, as there were layers to the Insurrection plan, where instead of keeping the plan among a smaller group, the planners felt their chances of success were greater by spreading it far and wide, not contemplating how many witnesses could then be able to testify against the leaders. They will be ramping up the pressure to get some bigwig conspirators to flip, when they see their aides testifying against them… Jim W. Dean ]
