New round of subpoenaes are out:
The House committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol issued subpoenas on Monday for six close allies of former President Donald J. Trump who promoted false claims of election fraud or worked to overturn the results of the 2020 vote, including his former national security adviser Michael T. Flynn.
The subpoenas demand records and testimony from Mr. Trump’s campaign manager Bill Stepien and a senior adviser, Jason Miller, as well as others associated with a so-called war room of planners who sought to halt Congress’s counting of electoral votes before a violent mob overtook the Capitol. They include John Eastman, a lawyer who drafted a memo laying out how Mr. Trump could use Congress to try to overturn the election and Mr. Flynn, who discussed seizing voting machines and invoking certain national security emergency powers.
The subpoenas demand that the witnesses turn over documents this month and sit for depositions in early December.
Stop fucking around and do Ginny Thomas. Make Clarence squirm and make sure he has to recuse should this issue ever get to SCOTUS.
And the DoJ needs to issue an arrest warrant on Bannon for his contempt of Congress.
He wouldn’t recuse himself.
Can’t they seize bank accounts if these RWNJs don’t comply?
Wouldnt it be wiser to wait until a grand jury actually indicts him?
And on that subject …
Thanks. That’s helpful. In light of those prior opinions, I bet they are seeking an OLC memo for the current situation.
Just out of idle curiosity, is there any reason to believe that Ms. Thomas has relevant information or documents? Or are you advocating for Republican-style harassment?
@Butter Emails: Nope. And no one can force him to.
I’m sure we could come up with a reallllly long list of OLC memos that need to be reconsidered and/or withdrawn.
@Burnspbesq: I get these ogres mixed up, there are so many, but didn’t she bankroll one of the groups protesting on Jan 6?
And rent buses to get people to D.C.
There is zero chance thomas will ever recuse – period. You can’t make him and no one can. The only recourse is impeachment and then senate removal …lol…can’t but laugh how impossible the second half of that process would be and after the midterms, likely the first can’t happen either. Recuse…lol … tell me another one. I need the laugh.
The FSM has shown that she does not love me enough to make this happen. I would love it if she would prove me wrong.
@debbie: That was it! Thank you.
If Ginny was servered I bet Thomas would not withdraw because of it. Who can make him? Nobody. Rules are for others, not for them.
That has been Trump’s motto and is now fully the Republican one.
I think Jason Miller should show up and answer questions from the committee. If only to show everyone he can take it on the chin.
How many of the OLC memos were written by Nixon’s or Reagan’s DOJ, to suit their own purposes? Two can play that. I’m tired of being called a hypocrite for using the same rules as Republicans.
@Burnspbesq: she underwrote a lot of the insurrection
Sorry, but reprehensible as she may be that one’s false.
@Kirk Spencer: My bad! Thanks for the info check.
@Kirk Spencer: My bad. Thanks for the info check!
Thomas? There are currently bigger fish to fry.
Pelosi needs to find a way to expel Gosar from the House after his latest stunt.
@Burnspbesq: Thanks for the pointer. It’s a good read.
It’s also a good reminder that “there is always a well-known solution to every human problem—neat, plausible, and wrong.” – H.L. Mencken
People have to be willing to let the experts get their legal ducks in a row…
@germy: [ snort! ]
@Burnspbesq: She paid for a bunch of people to be transported to the capitol for the demonstration, and follow-up riot. Damn right she should be subpoenaed.

@Burnspbesq: Gosar is my sister’s rep. I sincerely think he’s mentally ill. There’s something off about him. No reason why the House can’t subpoena Ginny and do everything else. In fact plan it for distraction if you need a distraction.
Just for the record, Thomas wouldn’t recuse himself even if he were the plaintiff or defendant.
