Is that what prosecutors call yet another a smoking gun?

Needs corroboration to be smoking.

Not by itself, but it’s more good evidence of Conspiracy to Defraud the United States. 18 U.S.C. § 371. And since the person telling Pak he was going to be fired is almost certainly Jeffrey Clark, Trump’s co-conspirator in their fraudulent scheme, his statements to Pak would also constitute evidence against Trump.

Just waiting on Clark and his dodging to happen.

That said, time’s running out for him to cut a deal.

Amazing. I can still be (slightly) surprised by just how deep the rot went.

Can’t happen soon enough. Srsly.

We need more than just random moronic or deluded trump foot soldiers, we need the corrupt traitorous Politicians that moved things along, and the moronic family members and demented traitorous consigliari’s that worked it, plus their stupid Proud Boy lieutenants.

Rotting in jail for the rest of their miserable lives. Jr and Ivanka and Jared are relatively young, I’d be thrilled to pay taxes to keep those fuckers in a shitty rat infested prison for a long time. Really.

I suspect the guy who replaced Pak has a story to tell to.

Yep, Trump hand picked Bobby Christine from the Southern Dist. Of GA to replace Pak. He was suppose to investigate the election results. And of course Christine found nothing.

I know that a lot of people were pretty confident about what was really going on here after Biden was declared the winner. Trump’s actions were a continuation of everything he had done as president, actions for which he escaped punishment, thanks to most willing republican legislators.
But proof was needed, and it was slow in coming. No one was going to blab if Trump won last year.
Happily, he LOST, and the water coming through the dam is starting to gush. It’s now every man for himself and how best to land on one’s feet.

He also couldn’t make anything up, because he had nothing to show. Just like all those 60 or so court cases. No one was able to bring proof to the judges of voter fraud.

While this is coming down millions of rubes are buying that tRump Card as soon as they have enough cans and bottles to total the necessary $45.

After that the regular emails will start coming until he’s fleeced than of their life’s savings.

All to help pay off his massive debt and legal bills.

So sad…

…which is enriching Trump and worth no more than a confederate dollar bill.

I really, really need some comeuppance for Republican senators and their lack of action. The cherry on top is if/when it comes out that at the time they were listening to the impeachment arguments that they knew what had been going on in background. Hell some of them, or certain Representatives, were intimately involved in the planning.

I wonder how many Republicans are out there that are like the Maricopa County Supervisors? In that they take pride in their job of running elections.

Some of them, but not all.
And when those who get exposed I want real drums there when they are drummed out of office.
