"You can't even call it participation. I wrote a couple texts," Johnson said.

Of course he did.  He's following the Trump checklist:

Deny it happened.
Admit that the thing happened, but deny your involvement.
Double down on denying your involvement even after evidence surfaces that you're lying.
Admit your involvement, but say you it was minor or only on the periphery.         JOHNSON IS HERE
Confess that you did the thing, but it doesn't really matter if you did or didn't because know one cares.

turned into a rant tl/dr...venting so I can start the day...Imagine sitting there watching a few friends seemingly getting off with treason and accessory to all the crime and deciding to confess too because why not it's working for the others?  Now imagine voting for that guy (this seems beyond useful idiocy, but I've never really bought into that)?  And this idiot's I only sent a couple texts...when you rely on the people you've dumbed down to take action, and put in place the already dumb to lead the charge...where exactly are the smart folks again, 'cuz they aint that smart so how again are "we" losing?  Slowly but surely...like in Ukraine...signing annexation papers is like signing on to the big lie.  It is just too dumb to stand.  Unfortunately we are stuck in the slog that we normally are thankful for, that slog we get pissed off at when it goes too fast for those "below" the law.  So obvious and hateful, but the slog, I believe we are still moving forward...and breaking through this will be pretty damn refreshing.  And if I'm wrong...well, I'll keep fighting and accept my pollyanna label.  I'm winning a personal battle...I'll leroy jenkins it if it comes to it - won't be given a choice I imagine...our kids deserve so much better than what these a$$holes either want or don't care about. I think I've covered all the keyboard warrior bases there...we know you're the green hawk, I know...

Somewhere out there one of Trump's attorneys is trying to figure out how to work your post into a defense theory.

I hate to agree with Senator Johnson but everyone knows and abides by the five second coup rule. He couped for like two seconds tops.
 
2022-10-05 7:54:17 AM  
I am assured that those text were never given to the Jan 6th committee, because they are protected by both executive privilege, and attorney client privilege

that should delay any obstruction charges for about 11 months as it works through the system.  by then Ron Johnson will be re-elected, and the GOP will take control of the Senate, impeach Biden and Kamala, and Pelosi, then install House speaker Trump as President where everyone will get blank Pardons to commit what ever crime they want

RedZoneTuba HA HA. Assaulting a police officer is such a hoot!

I saw that clip and, sad to say, it just doesn't shock me at this point.  They've really reached the point where there's no issue of morality or basic decency anymore.  A lot of these people don't even see the rest of us as Americans.

Ron Johnson is so deeply stupid too.  He might actually give Trump a run for his money when it comes to such an over the top, how did this guy get through school level of ignorance.  Great job Wisconsin.

He's not dumb subby. He's improving in polls and he might as well drop it before somebody drops it on him. At this point it looks like he's going to easily win reelection because Republicans are assholes and they like seeing fellow like-minded assholes in office.

If Trump has taught Republicans anything it's that they should just admit everything they've ever done wrong and other Republicans won't care, because they are "Christians" and they can be forgiven, unlike those godless liberals.

FTFA: (Ron Johnson) added that the House committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack "smeared" him because it didn't publicize all the text messages between his and Pence's aides.

So what's preventing YOU from releasing the rest of your texts, to set the record straight, Senator?

What was in it was the fake elector certificates from Wisconsin Republicans.

Pence was supposed to receive them and submit them instead of the legitimate Biden elector certs.

I'm sure it has absolutely NOTHING at all, timing wise to his admitting it yesterday, to it getting out Monday the WH Phone logs from 1/6 seem to have been in the docs recovered by NARA in the MaL Search.

Looks like someone got the call logs back.

Republicans lie all the time. When you catch them in the lie, they deny it. If you have concrete evidence, it was either "no big deal" or "fine, whatever, so whatyda gonna do about it?"

To paraphrase Davy Jones, "Ye were a poor conspirator, but a conspirator nonetheless."

Just because your cadre of insurrectionist dupes were poorly organized, and ultimately ineffective, doesn't mean you aren't guilty as hell.

Sen. RJ knows the fix is in.  The next Repube Prez has a get out of jail card / pardon for all J6 seditionists on Day 1.  Actually it's a pretty long list, it might take a week to print all the docs.

Wrong Johnson sounds like it should be a screwball sex comedy.

She's a big city lawyer, and he's a small town coffee shop owner, but when they are both mistakenly invited to the same Christmas swingers party their lives will be turned upside down, in the Hallmark Channel's presentation of The Wrong Johnson.

Mr. Coffee Nerves: now, I enjoyed "Sticks" on Happy Days as much as the next person


Holy shiat that's a good reference.  Well played.

If you can name the first sitcom that had a black character named Sticks for just one episode you'll be one of my favorite people ever (not the biggest honor, I'll grant).
