    Giuliani associate Lev Parnas convicted in campaign finance fraud case — The Washington Post

    The first of many dominoes to fall…

    Again, we’re taking forever to prosecute what’s obvious and apparent.

    Chief federal judge in D.C. assails ‘almost schizophrenic’ Jan. 6 prosecutions: ‘The rioters were not mere protesters’

    This IS absurd.
    The DOJ has to go after these people. How many people died? Injured? Damages?
    Much less attacking the Capitol?

    Pathetic.
    This is how we lose our nation. Creeping neglect. :confused:

    Take the easy path.
    Make bold statements. Take wimpy actions. Avoid upsetting The Powers That Be.

    Police officers performing their sworn duties were killed by the rioters. And very few people seem to care.

    As a firearms enthusiast I'm exposed to more hard right rhetoric than I would care to hear and read. The Hard Right Extremeists claim to be patriots (but only loyal to NPD Trump) who support our LEO'S (but conveniently don't discuss those who died at the Capitol Building on 06 Jan 2021). They also claim to ready to die for the USA (but only under political leadership they consider acceptable) yet whine loud and long over the ban on Russian ammunition, and they purchase Communist block firearms and magazines.

    Trump ally Steve Bannon surrenders to FBI on contempt of Congress charges

    "the Biden regime"??? :confused:

    Uhh, y'all are crazy...thinking this is you against a king or dictator.
    Code words for conspiracy nuts.

    You're NOT patriots, you're fascist internal terrorists...trying to prop up a defunct megalomaniac (that could care less about you other than what you can do for HIM alone)
    Bannon is a nutjob. And so are many others in that insane leadership.

    Y'all are on the slippery slope to hell.
    Good luck on turning yourselves around.

    The system moves slow...but it IS moving, bit by bit.

    A small nail.

    Politicians from both parties live in glass houses. They're not going to take any risks, not even bold talk, until they absolutely have to. Smoking guns (plural) will have to be shown to the politicians AND the public before the any politician will seriously go after NPD Trump.

    The "political" subpoenas will need to be enforced. If I live long enough to see that happen I'll be shocked.

    The Democrats bumbled the second impeachment (which the Republicans were going to defeat regardless). They're going to bumble the Jan 06 investigation.

    Evidence. Absolutely infallible evidence that can not be ignored or pushed back will be required.

    'Absolute liars': Ex-D.C. Guard official says generals lied to Congress about Jan. 6 — POLITICO

    Whoa…talk about throwing down the gauntlet!!
    He did NOT mince words!
    Calling them absolute liars was not the worst.

    And the fact that one of the Army Generals is brother to conspiracy theorist Michael Flynn.
    Y’know the one arrested, jailed then pardoned by T.

    There’s a wicked web going on…

    God knows the subtle interactions that direct decision making…
    Even on an insurrection mob.

    Deeper down the rabbit hole.

    We need more high ranking officials to do this.

    Meadows sues Pelosi, Jan. 6 panel members — POLITICO

    Of course, this is is their pure MO

    Attack, manipulate, break rules
    Then when they’re called out on it
    Deny, delay…smoke & mirrors

    Like a school bully who claims to be innocent and victimized

    Or like mobsters and gangsters

    Trump Fraud Inquiry’s Focus: Did He Mislead His Own Accountants?

    Well, of course he did. Duh! :rolleyes:
    The man lies to everyone about everything.

    I'm sure he even lies to his own family (even his daughter)
    He lies even to himself.

    The question isn't the lie...the question is where to find the truth, the proof.
    The old adage...follow the money.

    There are so many layers here, it makes the Gordian Knot look like a child's toy.
    Unfortunately, we don't have anyone brave enough to cut through it with a sword.

    I think that a team of dedicated forensic accountants could compare NPD Trumps's loan & finance numbers to his IRS numbers, and see some serious fraud with both.

    Yes, we need someone with the balls to wield the sword (maybe a chainsaw).

    I think forensic is the key word
    They’re going to have to drill, dig and slice extensively

    What we need is the “authority figures” to say No Holds Barred and give a big budget.

    They should treat it like the War on Drugs
    And the Internal Extremists and foreign influence just like they do with Outside Terrorist and Cold War.

    These are just as dangerous as nukes.
    Seriously, no exaggeration.
    Other than it may not trigger a nuclear winter
    But it may destroy our country, literally.

    Kevin McCarthy Refuses Interview Request From Jan. 6 Committee

    There's got to be a way to make these leaders pay a price and consequences for their lack of cooperation.
    If not outright complicity in treachery and sedition.

    Censure doesn't do anything. like a friggin' "black mark on your record" that ya got in HS...doesn't do squat.

    I think really only the DOJ actually going after them and indicting can do anything.
    Not from the Committee...but for actual criminal activities.

    Correct me if I'm wrong
