Not as massive as Hawley’s phone call and text message records with oathkeepers is gonna be.

Bet there are a lot of oaths being sworn upon hearing this news.

If there was any document that should be read out loud in full in the Senate, it should be this one. Mandatory attendance.

History will thank Ms. Lofgren … I already carry a crush. She is a spectacular rep.

Get it all written down in the record, so that every one of their great great grand kids can look them up, and realize what traitors they were.

Interesting that no members of the press did this first. Or did they, but editors spiked it because there was no “Balance”…

This should be on call for every democratic rep or senator when being lambasted for being partisan by their Republican colleagues. A Merry Tut, tut! Let me check the reference. I see here, o this day at this time that you…

But really, it is a stupendous start to a process that should be ongoing. Drive these Seditionistas out of office. Rub their noses in it. Make them actually answer real questions about their past words and work.

At what point will the NY Times learn that giving RWNJs a platform in their Opinion section isn’t worth the retractions and bad writing? Not how to convince me to subscribe. I’ll do an inferior crossword.

Mo Brooks wrote “ANTIFA facsists.”

Rep. Zoe Lofgren was an aide to the very well respected Don Edwards from California. He was a solid civil libertarian who was on the Watergate committee and fought to disband HUAC.
I’m wondering what else is out there. Text messages from Louis Gohmerts 2006 era Motorola Razor flip phone?

Sunlight is the best disinfectant and Rep. Zoe Lofgren’s addition is going to burn.

Thank you Congresswoman Lofgren, great work and a lot of it will come in handy for their trials.

And yet all these big tweeters won re-election, but the election was rigged?

“organized by the white nationalist Nicholas Fuentes,”
something about that line must surely give others a chuckle, too…

Well the stakes have been upped, once again. In today’s day and age, massive amounts of evidence need to be met with massive negligence, massive not-caring, massive avoidance, massive looking-the-other-way, massive both-siderism, and massive sweeping-under-the-rug. It has been like an arms race, and the RW was perfectly capable of keeping up as we moved into the internet age.

Can they do it again? I would like to bet against them…but I’ve been losing bets for a long time.

Slow Mo is intellectually challenged by trying to remember his own name.
Even when he sings “Happy Birthday” under his breath he gets the name wrong most of the time.
