U.S. Secret Service deleted texts sought in Jan. 6 probe, watchdog says​

WASHINGTON, (Reuters) – The U.S. Secret Service deleted text messages from Jan. 5 and Jan. 6, 2021 after they were requested by oversight officials investigating the agency’s response to the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol, the agency watchdog has claimed.
The Secret Service disputed that accusation on Thursday, saying some phone data was lost during a routine device migration, but that all of the requested texts had been saved.
In a letter to the House of Representatives and Senate Homeland Security Committees investigating the events of Jan. 6, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) inspector general’s office (OIG) said “many” messages had been erased by the Secret Service with a device-replacement program after the watchdog asked for the records.
It was not clear from the letter what messages the inspector general’s office believed had been deleted or what evidence they might contain.
After the letter was published on Thursday, Bennie Thompson, who chairs both the congressional panel probing the Capitol attack and the House Homeland Security Committee, told the Axios news website the alleged deletion was “concerning.”
“If there’s a way we can reconstruct the texts or what have you, we will,” Thompson said.
The DHS did not respond to a request for comment late on Thursday.
In a lengthy statement issued in response to the accusations, a Secret Service spokesman said the agency had “fully” cooperated with the inspector general’s office.
“DHS OIG requested electronic communications for the first time on Feb. 26, 2021, after the migration was well under way,” spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said. “The Secret Service notified DHS OIG of the loss of certain phones’ data, but confirmed to OIG that none of the texts it was seeking had been lost in the migration.”
Guglielmi said that despite the assertions of the inspector general’s office, its employees had been granted “appropriate and timely access” to the materials.
The Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol followed weeks of false claims by Trump that he won the 2020 election. On Tuesday, lawmakers of the House panel probing the attack accused Trump of inciting the violence in a last-ditch bid to remain in power after losing the election. read more

Trump Ordered Officials To 'Make Sure' J6 Was 'Safe Event'​

Tyler Durden's Photo

BY TYLER DURDEN
FRIDAY, JUL 22, 2022 - 03:00 PM
Things you won't see in the Democrats' January 6th kangaroo court;
  • Testimony from the Secret Service agent to corroborate jilted staffer Cassidy Hutchinson's claim that Trump tried to 'grab the wheel' of his limousine to redirect to the Capitol.
  • Testimony from Ray Epps - who was notoriously caught on camera literally inciting Trump supporters to storm the Capitol - yet, somehow walks around free while J6 participants rot in cells.

  • Testimony from the FBI on how many government agents were present at the January 6th riot.
And last but not least - J6 Committee uniparty operatives will never highlight evidence that President Trump ordered the event to be 'safe,' and did not want to incite violence as his political opponents contend.
As Just the News reports:
But the hearings have been undercut by a fundamental fact: Trump's actions before the riot began included urging supporters to "peacefully and patriotically" express their opinions and ordering his top aides to ensure there was a large contingent of National Guard troops at the ready to ensure no trouble ensued.
A Capitol Police timeline obtained by Just the News shows the Trump Pentagon first offered National Guard troops to the Capitol Police on Jan. 2, 2021, four full days before the event. The police turned down the offer but then began to have second thoughts. The Capitol Police then asked their political minders — the House sergeant at arms chief among them — for permission to accept the troops on Jan. 4 but were turned down on the ground that such a show of force would create bad "optics," the records show.
But the smoking gun is a memo from the Inspector General which reveals that President Trump wanted to avoid - not incite - violence.

The memo details a Jan. 3, 2021 meeting in the White House between Trump, former SecDef Christopher Miller, and Gen. Mark Milley, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
"Mr. Miller and GEN Milley met with the President at the White House at 5:30 p.m.," reads the IG report. "The primary topic they discussed was unrelated to the scheduled rally. GEN Milley told us that at the end of the meeting, the President told Mr. Miller that there would be a large number of protestors on January 6, 2021, and Mr. Miller should ensure sufficient National Guard or Soldiers would be there to make sure it was a safe event. Gen Milley told us that Mr. Miller responded, 'We've got a plan and we've got it covered.'"

The fact of the matter is that Trump told his senior advisers that he knew the event would attract at "large number of protesters," and he ordered it to be kept "safe" using National Guard troops.
Instead, the evidence actually points to a large amount of pushback from underlings who were concerned about the optics of using the National Guard - which might create the perception of a military coup or martial law during the electoral process.
Army Secretary Ryan McCarthy, for example, "did not want to create the perception that the military was involved in the electoral process," per the memo. "He said that Mr. Miller made it clear that the military would not be involved in certifying the election results and that 10 different news agencies asked him about military use and martial law."
Also opposed to using the National Guard was DC Police Chief Robert Contee, who was appointed to his position on December 22, 2020 by Mayor Muriel Bowser.
"Chief Contee explained to us that he did not want other Federal law enforcement involved on January 6, 2021, because of the risk associated with having unidentified Federal officers carrying weapons within D.C.," reads the memo.
Even as key security officials were shrinking from deploying National Guard troops lest the "optics" send the wrong political message, the Capitol Police was being flooded by the FBI, the Marshal's Service and the Homeland Security Department with raw intelligence warning of possible violence, Just the News reported recently.
Those intelligence reports, which started flowing more than two weeks before the riot, flagged online chatter about waging a "bloody war," using nerve gas, concealing guns, and burning down the Supreme Court and specifically flagged two groups for possible trouble, the Proud Boys and Oath Keepers.
-JTN
"Right-wing extremists are talking about tunnels below the Capitol Complex and the allegiances of USCP officers," said Capitol Police intelligence expert John T. Nugent Jr. in a Dec. 21, 2020 email to the department's Intelligence and Interagency Coordination Division.
So the President wanted the National Guard to keep the peace, while the FBI and US intelligence was warning of impending violence - and the January 6th Committee has no interest in getting to the bottom of it.

January 6 defendant Mark Aungst of Williamsport, Pennsylvania committed suicide this week according to the local coroner. Aungst pleaded guilty last month to parading in the Capitol and was facing up to six months in prison and a $5000 fine.
News of Aungst’s death was reported by PennLive (excerpt)

A Lycoming County man awaiting sentencing for illegally entering the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, has died.
The death Wednesday of Mark R. Aungst, 47, of South Williamsport, was ruled a suicide, Coroner Charles E. Kiessling Jr. said.
TRENDING: J6 Defendant Mark Aungst Who Pled Guilty to "Parading in US Capitol" Commits Suicide Before Sentencing
Aungst pleaded guilty June 27 in District of Columbia federal court to a charge of demonstrating or parading in a restricted building. His sentencing was scheduled for Sept. 27 before Judge Reggie B. Walton. He could have been sentenced up to six months in prison and fined $5,000.
Aungst and co-defendant Tammy A. Bronsburg, who pleaded guilty to the same charge, traveled by bus to Washington on Jan. 6, 2021 for President Trump’s “stop the steal” rally. They then joined others and marched to the Capitol.
…Neither assaulted a police officer nor stole or damaged government property, the prosecutor had said at a previous court proceeding.
HuffPost reported on Aungst’s arrest in February (excerpt):
A witness who used Facebook to organize a bus trip in support of former President Donald Trump’s efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 election gave up the names of two passengers after they delayed the group’s return to Pennsylvania and one bragged about illegally entering the U.S. Capitol.
Mark Roderick Aungst and Tammy Bronsburg (aka Tammy Butry) are charged with entering a restricted building without lawful authority with intent to impede the orderly conduct of government business and engaging in disorderly or disruptive conduct during a session of Congress.
Excerpt from the Statement of Offense agreed to in Aungst’s plea agreement with the Justice Department.
8. Mark Aungst and Tammy Bronsburg, also known as Tammy Butry, (the
“Defendants”) knew that Congress was convening at the United States Capitol on January 6,
2021, to certify the vote count of the Electoral College of the 2020 Presidential Election. Both
Defendants traveled by bus to Washington, D.C. to attend the “Stop the Steal” rally on January 6.
The bus trip was organized on Facebook by another individual for about 50 people to travel from
Pennsylvania to Washington, D.C.
9. After attending the “Stop the Steal” rally and listening to speeches on January 6,
2021, both Defendants Aungst and Bronsburg decided to join a mass of individuals who marched
toward the U.S. Capitol Building.
10. Outside of the U.S. Capitol Building, the Defendants saw and heard individuals
shouting and encouraging the group to advance forward. After the doors to the U.S. Capitol
Building were breached, the Defendants also entered the U.S. Capitol Building without
permission at approximately 2:46 pm, through the Senate Fire Door by the Parliamentarian’s
Office. They left about ½ minute later
11. They re-entered at approximately 3:05 pm through the Senate Wing Door.
12. While inside the U.S. Capitol Building, the Defendants took photos and videos on
their cell phones documenting their time inside as they walked through the Capitol and into
Senate room S 145.
13. While inside the U.S. Capitol Building, the Defendants encountered members of
law enforcement. Law enforcement instructed the defendants to leave the building.
14. After leaving the United States Capitol Building through the Senate Wing Door
around 3:14 pm, Defendants Aungst and Bronsburg returned to the bus to travel back to
Pennsylvania. While on the bus, both Defendants bragged to other passengers that they had been
inside the United States Capitol.
15. While on the bus, Aungst showed other passengers photos that he had taken while
he and Bronsburg were inside the Capitol Building.
16. Bronsburg posted on Facebook a video that she had taken while inside the Capitol
Building.
17. Defendants Aungst and Bronsburg knew at the time they entered the U.S. Capitol
Building that that they did not have permission to enter the building and the defendants paraded,
demonstrated, or picketed.

Justice Dept. investigating Trump’s actions in Jan. 6 criminal probe​

The Justice Department is investigating President Donald Trump’s actions as part of its criminal probe of efforts to overturn the 2020 election results, according to four people familiar with the matter.

Prosecutors who are questioning witnesses before a grand jury — including two top aides to Vice President Mike Pence — have asked in recent days about conversations with Trump, his lawyers, and others in his inner circle who sought to substitute Trump allies for certified electors from some states Joe Biden won, according to two people familiar with the matter. Both spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss an ongoing investigation.
The prosecutors have asked hours of detailed questions about meetings Trump led in December 2020 and January 2021; his pressure campaign on Pence to overturn the election; and what instructions Trump gave his lawyers and advisers about fake electors and sending electors back to the states, the people said. Some of the questions focused directly on the extent of Trump’s involvement in the fake-elector effort led by his outside lawyers, including John Eastman and Rudy Giuliani, these people said.
In addition, Justice Department investigators in April received phone records of key officials and aides in the Trump administration, including his former chief of staff, Mark Meadows, according to two people familiar with the matter. That effort is another indicator of how expansive the Jan. 6 probe had become, well before the high-profile, televised House hearings in June and July on the subject.

The Washington Post and other news organizations have previously written that the Justice Department is examining the conduct of Eastman, Giuliani and others in Trump’s orbit. But the degree of prosecutors’ interest in Trump’s actions has not been previously reported, nor has the review of senior Trump aides’ phone records.
A Trump spokesman did not immediately respond to a request for comment. A Justice Department spokesman and a lawyer for Meadows both declined to comment.
Trump didn't want to call for Jan. 6 rioters' prosecution, new video shows
The revelations raise the stakes of an already politically fraught probe involving a former president, still central to his party’s fortunes, who has survived previous investigations and two impeachments. Long before the Jan. 6 investigation, Trump spent years railing against the Justice Department and the FBI; the investigation moving closer to him will probably intensify that antagonism.
Federal criminal investigations are by design opaque, and probes involving political figures are among the most closely held secrets at the Justice Department. Many end without criminal charges. The lack of observable investigative activity involving Trump and his White House for more than a year after the Jan. 6 attack has fueled criticism, particularly from the left, that the Justice Department is not pursuing the case aggressively enough.
In trying to understand how and why Trump partisans and lawyers sought to change the outcome of the election, one person familiar with the probe said, investigators also want to understand, at a minimum, what Trump told his lawyers and senior officials to do. Any investigation surrounding the effort to undo the results of the election must navigate complex issues of First Amendment-protected political activity and when or whether a person’s speech could become part of an alleged conspiracy in support of a coup.
Many elements of the sprawling Jan. 6 criminal investigation have remained under wraps. But in recent weeks the public pace of the work has increased, with a fresh round of subpoenas, search warrants and interviews. Pence’s former chief of staff, Marc Short, and lawyer, Greg Jacob, appeared before the grand jury in downtown Washington in recent days, according to the people familiar with the investigation. Both men declined to comment.

The Justice Department efforts are separate from the inquiry underway by the House committee, which has sought to portray Trump as responsible for inciting the Capitol riot and for being derelict in his duty for refusing to stop it. Both Short and Jacob have testified before the committee, telling lawmakers that Pence resisted Trump’s attempts to enlist him in the cause.
Unlike the Justice Department, the House panel does not have the power to launch criminal investigations or charge anyone with wrongdoing.
More than 840 suspects have been charged in the Jan. 6 Capitol riot
The Justice Department probe began amid the smoke, blood and chaos at the Capitol and has led to criminal charges against more than 840 individuals, expanding to include an examination of events that occurred elsewhere in the days and weeks before the attackincluding at the White House, in state capitols and at a D.C. hotel.
There are two principal tracks of the investigation that could ultimately lead to additional scrutiny of Trump, two people familiar with the situation said, also speaking on the condition of anonymity to discuss an ongoing investigation.
The first centers on seditious conspiracy and conspiracy to obstruct a government proceeding, the type of charges already filed against individuals who stormed the Capitol on Jan. 6 and on two leaders of far-right groups, Stewart Rhodes and Henry “Enrique” Tarrio, who did not breach the Capitol but were allegedly involved in planning the day’s events.
The second involves potential fraud associated with the false-electors scheme or with pressure Trump and his allies allegedly put on the Justice Department and others to falsely claim that the election was rigged and votes were fraudulently cast.
Recent subpoenas obtained by The Post show that two Arizona state legislators were ordered to turn over communications with “any member, employee, or agent of Donald J. Trump or any organization advocating in favor of the 2020 re-election of Donald J. Trump, including ‘Donald J. Trump for President, Inc.’ ”
No former president has ever been charged with a crime in the country’s history. In cases when investigators found evidence suggesting a president engaged in criminal conduct, as with Richard M. Nixon and Bill Clinton, investigators and successive administrations concluded it was better to grant immunity or forgo prosecution. One goal was to avoid appearing to use government power to punish political enemies and assure the tradition of a peaceful transfer of power.
Attorney General Merrick Garland has vowed that the Jan. 6 investigation will follow the facts wherever they lead and said that no one is exempt or above scrutiny, while refusing to divulge information outside of court filings.
Garland told NBC News in a Tuesday interview that the department pursues justice “without fear or favor. We intend to hold everyone, anyone, who was criminally responsible for the events surrounding January 6th, for any attempt to interfere with the lawful transfer of power from one administration to another, accountable — that’s what we do. We don’t pay any attention to other issues with respect to that.”

Biden slams Trump for watching Capitol riot on television as police faced 'medieval hell'
The Jan. 6 investigation is by some measures the largest ever undertaken by the Justice Department. While investigators in nearly every part of the country have been involved, the lion’s share of the work is being done by three offices: the U.S. attorney’s office in the District of Columbia, and the criminal and national security divisions at department headquarters.
In the probe’s first year, prosecutors focused largely on the people who breached the Capitol, some of them violently, charging hundreds with interfering with or assaulting police or obstructing an official proceeding.
This year, the fake-elector scheme has become a major focus of the Justice Department inquiry. After Trump lost the election, lawyers and others close to him urged GOP officials in key states to submit alternate and illegitimate slates of electors to reject the results of the state vote totals. Those would-be electors were aided in their effort by Trump campaign officials and Giuliani, who said publicly that the rival slates were necessary and appropriate, and has been described as overseeing the strategy.
Jeffrey Clark taken to the street in pajamas while federal agents searched his home
Last month, federal agents fanned out in multiple states to serve grand jury subpoenas, execute search warrants and interview witnesses — a significant escalation of overt investigative activity. As part of that effort, agents searched Eastman’s electronic devices, and conducted a search at the home of Jeffrey Clark, a former Justice Department official who enthusiastically embraced some of Trump’s last-ditch efforts to stop Biden from becoming president. Many of those who received subpoenas were told specifically to turn over their communications with Giuliani.
The Justice Department inspector general is also an important player in the investigation, as it examines Clark’s role as a department official in allegedly furthering the efforts.
In a call on Dec. 27, 2020, witnesses have said, Trump told acting attorney general Jeffrey Rosen that he wanted his Justice Department to say there was significant election fraud, and said he was poised to oust Rosen and replace him with Clark, who was willing to make that assertion.
Rosen told Trump that the Justice Department could not “flip a switch and change the election,” according to notes of the conversation cited by the Senate Judiciary Committee.
“I don’t expect you to do that,” Trump responded, according to the notes. “Just say the election was corrupt and leave the rest to me and the Republican congressmen.”
The president urged Rosen to “just have a press conference.” Rosen refused. “We don’t see that,” he told Trump. “We’re not going to have a press conference.”

Disinfo Campaign Launched to Discredit Key Questions Concerning Ray Epps and January 6th​

The regime has kicked into overdrive to prevent Americans from asking legitimate questions regarding Ray Epps’ behavior on January 5th and 6th.
Ray Epps, who is the only individual caught on camera repeatedly urging people to go into the Capitol as early as January 5th, just happens to be the only January 6 riot participant about whom the New York Times felt the need to write a highly sympathetic (and indeed highly bizarre) puff piece.
Revolver responded in scathing detail to the New York Times piece in question, pointing out the obvious and central questions the piece would have explored regarding Epps if it were a genuine piece of journalism rather than a janitorial mop up job designed to cover up the smoking gun of the January 6 Fedsurrection.
READ: The Hidden Agenda Behind the New York Times’ Desperate Puff Piece on Ray Epps
With the New York Times piece having utterly failed to do its job of damage control, it looks like the next phase in the effort to silence inconvenient discussion about Ray Epps is to flood the zone with false stories regarding Epps, and for the Regime to then use those stories to silence the genuine, legitimate, and critical questions regarding Epps that are making the powers that be sweat “big league.”
And sure enough, shortly after Revolver neutralized the Times’ damage control attempt, blatant falsehoods regarding Epps began to emerge from various accounts on Twitter, generating a tremendous amount of views and engagement.
The most egregious example is the following tweet


The tweet quickly went viral with over 17k retweets and 36k likes. Twitter is typically very aggressive in throttling exactly this sort of content, in particular from anonymous accounts. In this case, however, Twitter allowed the tweet (was it boosted rather than throttled?) to go mega viral. The Twitter account itself is hardly political, and seems to post mostly retro images from 70s and 80s.

Revolver News’ Darren Beattie immediately responded, noting that there is zero evidence for this remarkable claim:


Sure enough, another viral tweet emerged purveying false information regarding Ray Epps, this time an unsubstantiated theory that Ray Epps’ wife worked for Dominion Voting Systems:


Again, Beattie responded that there is no evidence for this false claim.


It is possible that these tweets are from authentic accounts that simply don’t bother to engage in the most basic fact checking for their outlandish claims. But in any case, witting or unwitting, such tweets regarding Epps allow the Regime to muddy the water and portray the legitimate questions about Epps in a questionable light.

Indeed, notice how quickly and eagerly the Associated Press seized on the false viral Epps tweet from the anonymous account, going to the length of writing an entire article on it.



From the AP:

CLAIM: Freedom of Information Act requests show a dozen phone calls between Ray Epps’ cell phone and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office a week before the Capitol insurrection on Jan. 6, 2021.
AP’S ASSESSMENT: False. Such records would not be obtainable through FOIA requests, because Congress is exempt from the law, legal experts say. A spokesperson for Pelosi also confirmed that the claim is false.
THE FACTS: Epps, an Arizona man who was filmed encouraging others to enter the U.S. Capitol the night before the riots, has long been the subject of a baseless conspiracy theory that he is a federal agent who helped orchestrate the insurrection.
There’s no evidence to suggest that Epps was anything but a disgruntled supporter of former President Donald Trump, and Epps has testified to the House committee investigating Jan. 6 that he wasn’t working for law enforcement. But a new false claim based on the conspiracy still circulated widely on Twitter in recent days.
“Freedom of Information Act requests show a dozen phone calls between the cell phone of Ray Epps and the office of Speaker Pelosi in the week before#January6th,” reads the tweet, which was posted on Thursday and has since been retweeted more than 15,000 times. The user, who mostly posts photos of vintage cars, provided no evidence for the claim.
Drew Hammill, a spokesperson for Pelosi, said in an email to The Associated Press that the claim is false. And experts in the Freedom of Information Act — which allows members of the public to request records from federal agencies — confirmed that such information cannot be obtained through a FOIA request.
Congress is not subject to the law, which is limited to the executive branch of the federal government and agencies, experts said.

Epps disinformation curiously pops up and goes viral just days after a failed damage control attempt by the New York Times? Not to fear, the Associated Press is ready to pounce and expose the disinformers! To be fair, the AP didn’t do a bad job… and they were only a day slower than Revolver’s Darren Beattie.

Adam Kinzinger, who would like nothing more than to see Trump and his supporters behind bars on the pretext of January 6, was quick to chime in on the anonymous Twitter post on Epps.

AP:

Republican Rep. Adam Kinzinger, who led questioning in the closing summer hearing of the Jan. 6 committee, tweeted on Friday that the claim was false.
“Take a gander. Absolutely false, literally made up, yet tens of thousands of RT’s, This is what democracy is up against,” Kinzinger said. “It’s time for the uneasy alliance between democracy defending people of all political stripes. #misinformation.”

The Regime would like nothing more for ridiculous, unsubstantiated, outlandish claims regarding Epps to take off, go viral, and muddy the waters—giving them easy lay-up “fact checks” that they will deceptively use to discredit the actual questions that threaten to disintegrate the entire fake narrative behind January 6.

Assuming the recent false tweets regarding Epps are some type of black influence op, it is not going to work—we will respond quickly and decisively, and most of the American people (and definitely Revolver readers) are too smart to fall for such tricks.

It is not uncommon for Regime cutouts to deploy bot armies to protect establishment narratives. In a major recent piece, Revolver exposed how a leading “disinformation researcher” actually worked for a group that set up fake Russian social media accounts in order to frame a conservative politician for being “supported by Russians.”


In yet another piece, we exposed how disgraced head of the now-defunct Disinformation Governance Board Nina Jankowicz’ name appeared in leaked documents for the Integrity Initiative, a NATO and US State Department funded NGO that engaged in top secret influence campaigns to meddle in democratic processes of various NATO countries.

If the recent false Epps tweets are genuine mistakes, then they serve an important reminder to be careful, responsible, and do basic research before believing or spreading information—especially on a topic such as Epps, which the Feds are frothing at the mouth to censor.

The truth is, the reality is far more scandalous than any fake tweet regarding January 6. And the reality is on video tape, free for the whole world to see, no matter how desperate the Regime is to prevent the true story of January 6th from getting out.

A ‘Farce’: Here’s What Wyoming Voters Really Think Of Liz Cheney And Her Sham J6 Committee​

CHEYENNE, Wyo. — Two days after the Associated Press wrote off Rep. Liz Cheney as “nowhere” to be found at Cheyenne’s midsummer cowboy festival, the lone congresswoman from Wyoming flipped pancakes for a brief appearance before returning to work on the Jan. 6 Committee.
The pancake breakfast held on every other day of the festivities has been a staple of Cheyenne’s Frontier Days celebration since 1986 when the Kiwanis Club adopted the tradition after an historic flood the year prior. For more than three decades after, volunteers with the Kiwanis Club often joined by members of the Boy Scouts and the Air Force have served thousands of pancakes within a short span of two hours. With its roots in the Cold War-era preparatory drills in the case of a sudden disaster disrupting food supply, the annual spectacle leaves little time for politicians who participate to mingle with their voters. For Cheney, the breakfast offered the perfect opportunity to show face without spending time with constituents left angry by the rarity of their sole congresswoman’s home state presence and her politically charged work as vice chair of the Jan. 6 Committee.


“We need to move on, and go do different things,” said Maria Lemke, an accountant and 25-year resident of Cheyenne who said Cheney’s role on the committee, combined with her frequent absence from the state, has led her to cast a vote for Trump-endorsed primary challenger Harriet Hageman.
“She’s from Wyoming,” were the first words Lemke said when asked what she liked about Hageman, who just 10 feet away was mingling with vendors in the fairground’s expo center.

While Cheney’s attendance felt like a hit-and-run performance, Hageman was clearly in her element as she spoke with voters throughout the massive cowboy and rodeo festival of her hometown, held just 100 miles from the ranch where she grew up. While her family still maintains the ranch, Hageman lives with her husband in Wyoming’s capital and largest city of just more than 65,000. Cheney has a residence in Jackson but spends most of her time in northern Virginia where her kids go to school.

In the 10 months since launching her primary challenge across town, Hageman said “it’s been fun” on the campaign trail in her effort to oust a three-term incumbent and daughter of a former vice president.

“It’s been a beautiful drive,” Hageman told The Federalist, touting more than 36,000 miles traveled across the state near a row of chuckwagons complete with cast iron kitchens once used to follow cowboys on 1,000-mile cattle drives. In contrast, Cheney has been so consumed by an obsessive focus on prosecuting former President Donald Trump, that her few visits home has become rare occasions which have featured events with reporters as opposed to voters turned sour by the Jan. 6 inquisition.
The words “traitor” and “hypocrite” were common descriptors reiterated by Wyoming voters throughout the festival to characterize their sole representative and her lead role on the Select Committee.
George Hoff, a 22-year resident of Cheyenne who is now retired, described the Jan. 6 proceedings spearheaded by Cheney as a “farce” and a “waste of taxpayer money.”
“I think they beat that drum until it died,” Hoff said. “When she goes over to the Potomac, she forgets about Wyoming.”

Despite half the state being under the jurisdiction of the federal government, Cheney no longer holds her seat on the House Natural Resources Committee navigating Wyoming’s myriad of public lands issues, instead directing her energy toward her vendetta against Trump with summer show trials.
“This is one of the first times in Wyoming’s history that Wyoming’s congressional representative is not on the Natural Resources Committee,” Hageman said, adding she expects to be placed on the committee next year if elected.
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s office confirmed to The Federalist Wednesday the Republican leader will back Hageman’s request for the assignment but added final placement would ultimately be up to the Steering Committee after the elections.
Seated on a bench under the shade at Indian Village, Joe Valois said Hageman’s commitment to Wyoming is in part why he’ll back her over Cheney in August.
IMG_0514-1024x768.jpeg

“She’s all Wyoming, she’s all about Wyoming,” said Valois, who lives in Cheyenne with his wife and six dogs.
A retired 24-year veteran of the Air Force, Valois was careful not to spill his margarita or state secrets, but gave away everything when it came to how his neighbors felt about Cheney and the “corrupt” Jan. 6 Committee.
“Everyone’s on the same page as me,” Valois said, with Cheney “not really focusing on Republican views and needs and what we want to happen.”
Despite Cheney’s Virginia-funded war chest of nearly $7 million to deploy three weeks before election day, Hageman, who has $1.4 million left on hand, isn’t worried.
“I have been pretty dramatically outspent,” Hageman acknowledged, but added Cheney isn’t spending money to defend her seat on Capitol Hill anymore. “What she’s doing is spending an enormous amount of money on staff.”
On Sunday, Cheney, who recent polling shows is behind Hageman by 22 points, all but conceded the race in Wyoming where President Donald Trump won in 2020 by a wider margin than any other state. The endangered congresswoman appears to be capitalizing on her role with the Jan. 6 Committee to lay the foundation for a possible presidential run in 2024.
“If I have to choose between maintaining a seat in the House of Representatives or protecting the constitutional republic and ensuring the American people know the truth about Donald Trump, I’m going to choose the Constitution and the truth every single day,” Cheney said on CNN, leaving the door open to a bid for the White House after midterms.

They are consumed with hatred for Donald Trump.
It'd be funny if it weren't so sad.
Their hatred just makes me like Trump so much more. Screw the Cheney family and all the other RINOs.

8 Biggest Unanswered Questions From The Jan 6th Hearings (2 min 49 sec):

Annnd, it’s gone.




The January 6th hearings ended in epic fashion, with America finally learning that Senator Josh Hawley runs like a total girl. Still, we came away from season one with several unanswered questions:
  1. Where are the kangaroos? If we're going to have a kangaroo court, we want to see some kangaroos, preferably wearing boxing gloves.
  2. Will Trump turn out to be Liz Cheney's real father? Feels like the drama is building to an epic "I am your father" reveal.
  3. How does Adam Schiff hold up that giant head on his tiny neck? It really defies all the laws of physics. We're starting to suspect his head is actually CGI.
  4. How did jet fuel melt steel beams? Speaking of defying the laws of physics, NO ONE HAS EVER BEEN ABLE TO EXPLAIN THIS.
  5. Is Adam Kinzinger happy? Like, deep down? We sure hope to one day see a genuine smile out of him. Poor little fella.
  6. Where was Trump when there was just one set of footprints? He was carrying you on the beach in his gargantuan hands.
  7. If no one watches the January 6th hearings, did they really happen? An age-old philosophical question comes to the fore once again.
  8. Will the hearings change anyone's mind about Trump? SPOILER ALERT: Nah.
We can't wait to see if our questions get answered when the January 6th hearings resume this fall with their Halloween Spooktacular! Let us know if there are other burning questions you're just dying to find the answer to!

Because it works. They reach down for the base-est emotions we all have, and let in to, then they've got us entrapped.

Reptiles. Spiders, etc...

Liz Cheney Gets Wyoming Dems Switching to GOP for Primary, Data Suggests

by Khaleda Rahman on 8/8/2022​

excerpt:
"There aren't enough Democrats in Wyoming to save her, but this confirms that Liz Cheney has effectively switched parties," Tim Murtaugh, an advisor to Hageman, told Newsweek.

Good! I hope Cheney suffers a MASSIVE defeat next Tuesday (the Wyoming primary is August 16th).
