Jan. 6 Committee Demands Documents From Trump And His Children: Report

The House Select Committee investigating the Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol made it clear today that they plan to conduct an extensive and far-reaching probe of what took place on the fateful day earlier this year that left five people dead and a black mark on the American system of government.

Politico reports the committee is seeking documents and communication records from various federal agencies and also from the White House:

“The committee, chaired by Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.), plans to seek executive branch records related to the attack and its run-up — including ‘communications within and among the White House and Executive Branch agencies’ on and before Jan. 6.

“The select panel is also seeking records relating to attempts to place politically loyal personnel in positions across the government after the election; the planning, organization and response to Jan. 6 and earlier; and attempts to overturn the rule of law and overturn the 2020 election. One segment of the request notably seeks ‘documents and communications related to the mental stability of Donald Trump or his fitness for office.'”

Additionally, the committee is reaching directly into the Trump inner circle, which could open up members of the former president’s family to federal charges if they played any role in planning or carrying out the Capitol riots:

“The committee asked the National Archives for ‘all documents and communications within the White House’ involving a host of Trump World denizens, including Hope Hicks, former national security adviser Robert O’Brien, Trump adviser Peter Navarro, Kayleigh McEnany, Steve Bannon, Michael Flynn, Melania Trump, all Trump’s adult children except Tiffany Trump, Kimberly Guilfoyle, Rudy Giuliani and Roger Stone.”

There are also mentions among the document request to the Pentagon for any and all “documents and communications concerning possible attempts by President Donald Trump to remain in office after January 20, 2021,” along with specific references to “martial law, the Insurrection Act, and the use of military personnel during last year’s election.”

The Justice Department under Trump will also be closely scrutinized by the select committee:


“The panel requested a wide-ranging tranche of records from DOJ related to Trump’s attempts to force the department to intervene in the election, then-Vice President Mike Pence’s role in presiding over election certification, any discussion of the 25th Amendment and the department’s response to Jan. 6.”

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) tried to shrug off news of the committee and its requests for documentation, telling reporters:

“They are coming for members of Congress, they’re coming for everybody. It’s kind of amazing to me.”

McCarthy spoke with Trump on the day of the insurrection and may also be called to testify before the committee, which could wind up resulting in criminal charges being filed against him and other members of the GOP who allegedly gave tours of the Capitol just days before the riots took place.

Trump Org. Insider: Donald Is About To Throw His Kids Under The Bus To Save Himself

What do you suppose Donald Trump’s first thoughts were when he found out that a new grand jury had been empaneled in Manhattan as the investigation into him and the Trump Organization escalates?

Safe to say he was angry, even enraged. After all, this is a man who believes he’s above the law.

After the anger came fear, a cold chill up his spine and neck as images flashed into his brain of him being handcuffed and marched off to a prison cell somewhere in New York.

And then, after the anger, beyond the fear, was likely this thought: Who can I sacrifice to save myself? Who is expendable?

According to Barbara Res, the former Executive Vice President of the Trump Organization, everyone is expendable to Donald Trump, including his own children.

Res was a guest on MSNBC Saturday, telling host Alex Witt what she believes is going on inside Trump’s head right now:

“Well, first of all, I think he’s going berserk

“I think he’s so angry. All the things that he put in place, the things he put in place to get elected the first time and almost get elected the second time, both were unreasonably based, and all the other things, the attorney general and the kinds of — the judges and all the things that he thought he had working for him all of a sudden are not there anymore. it’s — he can’t avoid this. This happened and this is something he thought he could avoid.”

Berserk. What an apt description of the deeply unstable failed, one-term former president, and it led Res to note that Trump will do whatever it takes to save his own hide:

“And I’m sure he’s looking for people to blame. He’s screaming at people, everybody, he’s probably blaming [Allen] Weisselberg, he’s blaming his sons, his daughter, you know, anyone that’s available to him. And he will, I think, throw any one of them under the bus to protect himself.”

Sound farfetched? Do you find it hard to believe Donald would feed his beloved Ivanka to the wolves? It’s textbook behavior for someone with narcissistic personality disorder, which the former president clearly suffers from.

At this very moment, Donald Trump is scheming and looking for an exit. It doesn’t matter who he has to destroy in order to protect himself, even his own flesh and blood.

Of course, Donnie should keep something in mind: His family may have already turned on him and sold him out to protect themselves. Betrayal, after all, is a two-way street.

Here’s Barbara Res on MSNBC:

Don Trump Jr. Gets Mocked Online After His Humiliating Arrest Record Leaks Out

The 2020 Trump for president reelection campaign repeatedly harped on one name more than any other when they try to attack presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden: The former vice president’s son, Hunter.

 


From the president to his spokespeople and family members, the cheap shots were focused squarely on Hunter Biden, especially the fact that he had a substance abuse problem years ago (which Hunter freely admits to) and that somehow he made money illegally in Ukraine and China, though they fail to provide a shred of evidence to support their specious allegations regarding his finances.

Donald Trump Jr. has been especially vocal over the past couple of months when it comes to tweeting at Hunter Biden, which makes the fact that Junior was arrested for being publicly intoxicated all the more ironic. Publicly intoxicated in New Orleans, perhaps the hardest-drinking city in the country. And at Mardi Gras, no less!

 


How fully trashed and obnoxiously drunk do you have to be to be arrested in New Orleans during Mardi Gras?! That’s like getting a speeding ticket at the damn Indy 500!

Malcolm Nance, a former Naval intelligence officer and frequent guest on MSNBC, made Don Jr’s humiliating arrest public on Twitter:

Yes, busted on Hillary Street! If you tried to write this as fiction, an editor would hand it back to you and say, “It’s just not believable; try again.”

And that led to others also remarking on the fact that a then-23-year-old Don Jr. was put in the slammer for being too drunk for cops in Party City USA, aka New Orleans:

 

Here’s an idea: The next time Junior sarcastically asks “Where’s Hunter?” on social media, perhaps we should all respond to him this way: We know where you were, Traitor Tot: In the drunk tank.

Karma is such a beautiful thing when it takes a giant bite out of someone as deserving as Junior.

Key Witness Says Manhattan Prosecutors Are Asking Lots Of Questions About Eric Trump

If you were wondering what names might be on any indictments that are handed down by the newly empaneled grand jury in Manhattan being overseen by District Attorney Cyrus Vance, Jr., some information from a key witness in the investigation of Donald Trump and the Trump Organization says one name that came up when she spoke with prosecutors was that of Eric Trump.

Jennifer Weisselberg is the ex-daughter-in-law of Trump Organization Chief Financial Officer Allen Weisselberg, and she was a guest on Ari Melber’s MSNBC show, “The Beat” recently where she confirmed that investigators did indeed ask her about the former president’s middle son:

“You know, I just found out recently when the attorney general’s office initially called me, I didn’t know it was on the heels of Allen Weisselberg’s deposition last July and August, but they initiated a call to me in early September and right before Eric was deposed. And, so, then we had a long interview, and they did bring up Eric, yes.”

One of the main things we know about Eric is that he serves as Executive Vice President of the Trump Organization and was the person who ostensibly ran the day-to-day operations of his father’s company while his dad was serving as president.

As for that deposition Eric gave, CNN reported back in October of last year:

“Eric Trump, who runs day-to-day operations of the family real estate empire, sat for a deposition on Monday as part of the New York Attorney General’s investigation into whether the Trump Organization improperly inflated the value of its assets, a person familiar with the matter tells CNN.

“The deposition follows a court battle over whether he would sit for testimony and provides a key step in the New York civil investigation into the Trump Organization.

“Trump, who according to court records was scheduled to sit for the deposition on Monday, sat for the hearing virtually, the person said, adding that it ended around 5 p.m.”

Clearly, it’s not just the failed, one-term former president who is under active investigation by prosecutors. His three children — Don Jr., Ivanka, and Eric — are also being looked at for their role in any crimes that may have been committed at the Trump Organization.

Here’s hope the three Trump spawn are also headed to prison. That way it can be a family affair.

Judge Rules Massive Fraud Lawsuit Against The Trump Family Will Move Forward

A federal judge has dealt a major blow to Donald Trump, his family, and the Trump Corporation by refusing to stay a massive lawsuit that accuses the Trumps of running a pyramid scheme that allegedly bilked investors out of millions of dollars. Those investors are now seeking a large settlement that could possibly endanger the already shaky financial situation of the family-held company.


According to Law and Crime:

“The complicated and anonymous class action lawsuit, filed by a Jane Doe and others, resulted in motions to stay the proceedings and interlocutory appeals by the Trumps, the Trump Corporation, and a third party called ACN Opportunity, LLC. ACN was ordered to produce documents relevant to the claims. Interlocutory appeals are appeals to higher courts filed in the midst, rather than at the conclusion, of lower court litigation.

“The judge, Lorna G. Schofield, a Barack Obama appointee, said the lawsuit would not be put on hold.”


Judge Schofield’s ruling is also problematic for Trump because it threatens to expose many of his shady business practices as part of the lawsuit and could also result in his three eldest children — Don Jr., Ivanka, and Eric — having to give depositions and appear in open court as part of the lawsuit.

The suit, which is a class action filing, accuses the Trump family and their business of promoting a multi-level marketing — aka pyramid — scheme, which was known as the ACN Opportunity, LLC:

“ACN, the plaintiffs said, was a ‘get-rich-quick scheme’ that relied on Trump and his family ‘conn[ing] each of these victims into giving up hundreds or thousands of dollars,’ in violation of various state laws.”


Conning and grifting are the only two enterprises Trump and his spawn have ever excelled at. When they’re unable to do so, they wind up filing for bankruptcy and moving on to another con job.

The Trumps had attempted to force the suit into arbitration so that discovery could be kept secret. Additionally, there are reportedly recordings of Donald Trump that will be introduced as evidence in the ACN lawsuit. Those alone could wind up being humiliating for the president and others in his orbit.

For now, the case moves forward, and facts will be coming out left and right. That alone is reason for Donald Trump to be worried. As we know, he’s never been a fan of facts or the truth.
