House committee plans to seek phone records in probe of January 6, including from members of Congress

Quote:
The House Select Committee investigating the January 6 Capitol riot is poised to send notices to various telecommunications companies requesting that they preserve the phone records of several people, including members of Congress, multiple sources tell CNN.

Preserving communications records is the first step in an investigatory process that could eventually lead to witness testimony. The notices are set to go out as soon as this week and provide the first window into the kinds of information the committee plans to pursue…

Democrats have also accused some of their GOP colleagues of interacting with individuals who stormed the US Capitol prior to the attack…

“I can tell you that we’ll look at everything that will give us information on what happened on January 6,” Thompson said. “We will look at all records at some point.”…

The scope and purview of the committee’s work was part of what led to Republicans revolting over the concept of an independent bipartisan commission, but the select committee will likely be more expansive than the independent commission Republicans blocked in the spring.

The resolution empowering the Select Committee provides no specific limitations as to what it can and cannot investigate, leaving it up to the Committee to impose its own guard rails and narrower focus.

Initial plans involve compiling massive amounts of data, documents and eventually compelling testimony from a wide swath of potential witnesses, including members of Congress, former members of the Trump administration, and some of the hundreds of rioters who have been charged with assaulting the Capitol that day…


Questions:
The rumors are that many members of Congress were involved in the insurrection, do you think that is the case?  If so, how many Republicans do you think could be implicated?  If any lawmakers were involved, what should happen to them?  Do you think that some lawmakers might be worried?  Republicans are already threatening revenge for the investigation, but why?  If they haven’t done anything wrong, why are they so upset?  If no members of Congress were involved in the insurrection, does that mean that the Republicans are coving for Trump?

Trump Accused Obama Of Wiretapping Him and the Obama’s Response was Perfect

Saturday, March 4th, 2017

Author: Matt King

This morning, President Donald Trump lashed out in an impulsive tweetstorm accusing President Obama of ordering the wiretapping of Trump Tower in a pathetic attempt to deflect attention away from the investigation into suspected collusion between the Trump team and agents of the Russian Federation.

Instead, he ended up just throwing more fuel on the fire that threatens to engulf his entire administration.

Obama spokesman Kevin Lewis just responded with this statement that should put the matter to rest:

“A cardinal rule of the Obama administration was that no White House official ever interfered with any independent investigation led by the Department of Justice.

As part of that practice, neither President Obama nor any White House official ever ordered surveillance on any U.S. citizen. Any suggestion otherwise is simply false.”  Read the rest of the story by clicking here

 

Donald Trump is a sociopathic liar who has found himself in a world of trouble from his seemingly illegal association with the Russians.  The oldest trick in the book for someone caught with their hand in the cookie jar is to accuse someone else of doing the same or worse

Trump may have thought he was helping to shift the spotlight off of himself and onto President Obama by giving credence to a ridiculous Breitbart conspiracy that alleges a secret “Obama shadow government” is behind the information leaks and the protests across the country.

Instead, he just dug himself deeper into the hole. All of this just makes the need for a special prosecutor to lead the investigation into the Trump, his team and their alleged collusion with Russian agents all the more urgent.

Trump’s accusation of Fake News to those who weren’t favorable towards him is another example of this projection which he uses so well to divert attention away from himself.  The Fake News is coming from sites like Breitbart who are always giving Trump favorable coverage.  Trump is doing the same thing here with his accusation of being wire tapped by President Obama.  Trump simply doesn’t want to face the music for his treasonous alliance with the Russians.  Yes, it is time for a special prosecutor to investigate Trump and if Trump really thinks that a good lawyer could make a good case because of his foolish accusations, then let him hire the best at his own expense.  It’s time for the truth Donald, I know that you aren’t use to it, but we, the American People will have it.  Post your comments here.
