She is in actual danger

cretinbob: She is in actual danger


Yeah she is, this is extremely damning testimony
 
2022-06-28 1:41:36 PM  
Sadly, that's no surprise at all.
 
2022-06-28 1:41:36 PM  
Holy crap
 
2022-06-28 1:41:39 PM  
What? It's not like the people she's testifying about have shown themselves to be prone to irrational behavior or violence.

Fare thee well now

I doubt that people take these jobs with the hopes of ending up in the Witness Protection Program.
 
2022-06-28 1:42:39 PM  
Will be interesting to see if indictments are dropped after this testimony and if they round up people that have threatened her and lock them away for a decade or more.
 
2022-06-28 1:42:44 PM  
If we can provide christofascists masquerading as Supreme Court justices with enhanced protection against threats, we can do the same for her. She's actually performing a service that recognizes law in this country, unlike the theocrats now appointed to life terms.
 
2022-06-28 1:42:57 PM  
She's easily the bravest person I'll be exposed to today.

She's visibly sweating right now, but still keeping her shiat together for her country.  I'm amazed a competent and seemingly decent human worked for trump.
 
2022-06-28 1:43:24 PM  
Nothing real damaging or very new, to this point. Hutchinson previously worked for Rep. Scalise and Sen. Cruz, so

she's used to working for real scumball Republicans. She seems that she'd be brighter than that.
 
2022-06-28 1:44:18 PM  
Trying to overthrow the government and murdering police officers is bad, but not as bad as allowing Americans to have affordable health care. This is what Republican voters believe.

ElPrimitivo: What? It's not like the people she's testifying about have shown themselves to be prone to irrational behavior or violence.


No, they are peaceful protesters, tourists on a field trip, and Patriots trying to protect America from George Soros and the NWO/WEF Socialist/Islamist/Communists try to rip white babies from their mothers' wombs. That is known for a certainty.

Indeed. She'll be treated like an apostate. The MAGAt faithful might want to terminate her to protect their orange emperor.
 
2022-06-28 1:46:28 PM  
A women exposing the reprehensible actions of republicans by telling the truth is damn near a death sentence. Republicans hate accountability for themselves and a woman causing it fills them with enough anger I worry about her family and friends.

Good riddance
To all the thieves.
To all the fools,
Who stifled me.
They've come and gone
And passed me by.
Good riddance to all...

Can you go in witness relocation after appearing on national TV before Congress?

She's providing exacting proof that they were warned about the danger of violence. TFG was warned that the language he wanted to use in his speach could be illegal incitement. And too much more to list that proves his knowledge  that what he was doing was both wrong, and reckless. Those are important aspects of a prosecution.

TFG told a bunch of people that he was informed had ARs to March to the capitol. Also he asked for magnetometers to be removed so said individuals could attend his rally. Quoted: "They're not here to hurt me"

inglixthemad: The MAGAt faithful might want to terminate her to protect their orange emperor.


At least now that she's provided her testimony, there's no "professional" motive to kill her (in fact, killing her now would make it even worse).   There could still be some wackjobs with personal agendas, but at least nothing with significant resources behind it.
 
2022-06-28 1:51:06 PM  
I mean yeah, it's the American Taliban we're talking about here. A cult of thieves, liars, murderers, terrorists, terrorists, mysoginists and pedophiles. She's in danger.
 
2022-06-28 1:51:09 PM  

redbucket: her shiat together for her country


Well that or so she doesn't end up in a prison cell or a corn field
 
2022-06-28 1:54:04 PM  
OF course she is. Right wingers are largely a herd of violent animals.

She's awfully pretty, too pretty to live according the Marjorie Taylor Greene, former prettiest girl in the room.

Well, except for a trial... I don't know if her testimony would be admissible if she couldn't be cross examined... unless there's a stipulation for a murdered witness...

It doesn't say, only mentions she was involved in almost every meeting and John Dean says that it had better be a big deal, as the watergate committee only had one surprise witness - the guy who described Nixon's secret taping system

raerae1980: Anything we didn't know yet?  I'm not at my desk now and can't read up on it myself.


A lot.

Among them

Trump ordered people that he knew were armed to be allowed into his speech and demanded they take down the magnetomenters (magnemometers? Metal detectors!) to let them in.

THENstill told the crowd to go to the capitol.

Also, she heard the proud boys being discussed--

... in the white house..

in the days BEFORE the sixth.

Engel and Ornato come on down to the 1/6 committee or DOJ your choice
 
2022-06-28 1:59:27 PM  
Probably significant that Trump apparently tried to choke someone out to try to get to the Capital.

Not that it wasn't known, but pretty solid and damning evidence from the hearings RE trumps knowledge/culpability
 
2022-06-28 1:59:42 PM  
What utter insanity
Will it wake anyone up?
Probably depends on whether they are in a world based on reality or if they strap on and view it through Fox News goggles everyday

Damn. He is a farking moron. Most of the people attending the rally weren't there to hurt him, but it only takes one person with means and opportunity - see pretty much every farking political assassination ever that I can recall - except Anwar Sadat.

Trump called the Pres limousine "the beast".

So I guess the mark of the beast is a new set of tread marks on his a$$.

What they believe is that only Republicans are fit to hold power, so overthrowing Democratic government is patriotic.

He smashed his well-done steak against the wall.
 
2022-06-28 2:01:06 PM

2022-06-28 2:01:24 PM  
Not surprised to learn he throws things in frequent fits of rage

fsbilly: Well, except for a trial... I don't know if her testimony would be admissible if she couldn't be cross examined... unless there's a stipulation for a murdered witness...


IANAL and most of my legal knowledge comes from Law & Order but...they do have her testimony on tape after she was officially sworn in.  I'm pretty sure that is admissable if the witness is deceased by the time it comes to a trial.  I believe this is the case with grand jury testimony, and don't see why it would be different here.
 
2022-06-28 2:02:33 PM  
Damn she straight called him out for eating ketchup...

And throwing entire tablecloths to the floor lol
 
2022-06-28 2:03:06 PM  
Throwing dishes does line up with a toddler still wearing diapers

TFG apparently thinks the White House is part of the WWF and he likes to throw his food around like the toddler that he is.
 
2022-06-28 2:03:57 PM  
Hey, uh....anybody heard from Melania lately?

The presidential limo has been called "the beast" since long before Trump.
