Former Bush Attorney General Says DOJ Has The Evidence To Indict Trump For 3 Crimes

Former Attorney General Alberto Gonzales is convinced that the Justice Department now has enough evidence to indict failed, one-term, twice-impeached former president Donald Trump for at least three felonies.

Gonzales, who served as AG for George W. Bush, was a guest on CNN Thursday afternoon, was asked about a speech given by Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), who serves as vice chair of the January 6 House Select Committee in which she said:

“The reality we face today as Republicans, as we think about the choice in front of us, we have to choose, because Republicans cannot be loyal to both Donald Trump and to the Constitution at this moment.”

That led host Jake Tapper to inquire of Gonzales:

“Do you agree? Do you see it that way?”


“I think that that is a very accurate statement, quite frankly,” Gonzales replied, adding:

“I believe that the Department (of Justice) is going to move forward with a more serious investigation now that this new information and there may be some indictments.”

Tapper followed up by asking:

“Have you seen evidence or at least possible evidence that leads you to wonder whether Donald Trump committed a crime? And if so, which crime?”

Gonzales then laid out the three crimes he believes Trump could potentially be indicted for:

“Yeah, I think that if you can tie him — he knew about — he knew the crowd was dangerous, he encouraged the crowd to go to the Capitol and he knew the crowd was armed, and he knew that the purpose of the — what was going on in Congress, which was to certify the Electoral College count, and yeah, I think one might make the argument that there is certainly the beginnings of a case full of seditious conspiracy, obstruction of Congress. So there are some things there that I think the attorney general will look at, along with witness tampering.

Seditious conspiracy, obstruction of Congress, and witness tampering. The penalty for those crimes is 20 years, five years, and 20 years, meaning if Trump got the maximum, he’d be looking at a sentence of 45 years in federal prison. Considering what he tried to do, that seems like a just punishment.

January 6 Committee Appears To Have Evidence Trump Helped Fund Witness Tampering

The House Select Committee investigating the January 6, 2021 attack on the U.S. Capitol has been following the money and appears to have found evidence that failed, one-term former president Donald Trump helped fund witness tampering, according to a member of the committee.

Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-CA) was interviewed by CNN host Anderson Cooper on Wednesday evening and was asked:

“The messages shown by Vice-Chair Cheney at the end of yesterday’s hearing seemed to open the door to potential witness tampering. Is the committee in possession of more messages along those lines? Has that evidence been shared with the Justice Department?”

Congresswoman Lofgren replied:

“Let’s just say, we’re concerned.

“As you know, in a prior hearing, we talked about the hundreds of millions of dollars that the former president raised. Some of that money is being used to pay for lawyers for witnesses and it’s not clear that that arrangement is one that is without coercion potential for some of those witnesses.”

She then added:

“So, let’s just say this. It’s a concern and anyone who is trying to dissuade or tamper a witness should be on notice that that’s a crime and we are perfectly prepared to provide any evidence we have to the proper authorities.”

While we’ve thought for months the crime Trump would be charged with in relation to his actions to stage a coup on Jan. 6 might be seditious conspiracy, it now looks like he’s also facing being referred by the Select Committee to the Justice Department for witness tampering, too.

There are more hearings planned next month, and the list of crimes committed by Trump is likely to grow. Things are looking bad for Donald, and it’s way past time for him to be charged, tried, and locked up.

Marjorie Taylor Greene Demands The US Pull Out Of NATO And Let Putin Destroy Ukraine

On Wednesday, President Joe Biden announced a significant increase of the U.S. military presence in Europe, including additional naval destroyers stationed in Spain, two F-35 fighter jet squadrons in the United Kingdom, and a headquarters in Poland for the U.S. 5th Army Corps.

Making the announcement, Biden noted:

“The United States and our allies, we’re going to step up. We’re proving that NATO is more needed now than it ever has been and it’s as important as it ever has been.”

Shortly after Biden made his remarks, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) went on Twitter and proved her complete ignorance of foreign and military policy while also making it crystal clear where her true loyalty lies.

Of course, it shouldn’t surprise anyone that Congresswoman Greene (along with the vast majority of the Republican Party) is once again siding with Russian President and mass murderer Vladimir Putin and against our NATO allies.

Greene got pelted with derision for her ignorant tweet.

Fox’s Jesse Watters Launches A Sexist Attack On Cassidy Hutchinson And Gets Shredded On Twitter

Fox News host Jesse Watters (who has been called by some “Bill O’Reilly’s former fluffer”) is absolutely apoplectic that former White House aide Cassidy Hutchinson dared to repeat something she heard took place on January 6, 2021 when she testified before the House Select Committee on Tuesday.

Specifically, Hutchinson said she had been told that failed, one-term, twice-impeached former president Donald Trump grabbed a Secret Service agent and ordered him to drive to the Capitol while also grabbing the steering wheel of the vehicle.

Keep in mind Hutchinson never claimed she had witnessed the altercation. She made it clear it was something that had been told to her by another person.

And now there are reports that the Secret Service and the agent in question are upset with what Hutchinson said and they’re pushing back by floating stories to the media but not bothering to actually sit down before the committee, be sworn to tell the truth, and testify.

That was the jumping off point for Watters, who began his rant with this:

“If you put up this Secret Service agent who says ‘This girl’s lying, I never said that.’ He’s got 20 years in the Secret Service. Guy’s got a ton of integrity. She’s fresh out of college. Who do you believe? He has a ton to lose by lying. She has a lot to gain by lying.”

So there’s no way a member of the Secret Service would ever lie? Not even to protect his career and not be publicly humiliated? Please! That’s just plain stupid on its face.

But Watters was far from done, adding:

“Look at her. She’s the new ‘it’ girl. She’s gonna get a job offer at CNN, she’s gonna be a contributor, she’ll probably get a book deal. And she’ll waltz around at every party in Washington. Never have to pay for another drink.”

Does it get more misogynistic than that? New “it girl”? Be sure and note the line about never having to pay for another drink, too. As if that’s why Ms. Hutchinson agreed to testify: Just so she could get free drinks.

Twitter ripped Watters to shreds for his disgusting remarks:

Rudy Admits His Guilt With Attack On Cassidy Hutchinson: ‘She Was Never Present When I Asked For A Pardon’

For anyone curious as to whether or not former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani is still (allegedly) day drinking, a botched attack he leveled at former White House aide Cassidy Hutchinson seems to confirm that Rudy is indeed hitting the sauce (allegedly!) as soon as the sun comes up.

 

Giuliani thought it would be a good idea to try and question Hutchinson’s credibility even though he himself hasn’t had an ounce of that commodity in at least a decade.

And while he was at it, Rudy also managed to incriminate himself!

On Twitter, Giuliani posted this:

“The January 6 Witch Hunt Cabal has now exceeded even its prior fraudulent. The last witness was a reckless liar. Contrary to her false testimony she was never present when I asked for a pardon.”

He then added:

“Actually, I told the President I did not want or need one.”

Rudy later deleted those tweets, but the internet is forever:

That tweet was replaced with this one:

Is Rudy drunk? Possibly. Is he an idiot? Definitely. Is he guilty? As homemade sin.
