Even a bass wouldn’t get in trouble if it just kept it’s big mouth shut!
You know, the more the inner circle of the Trump criminal cabal unravels, the more I’m struck by one old adage. Birds of a feather flock together. And if that’s still the case, then Trump’s inner circle of advisors were a flock of loons.
But the more I look at the unraveling of that inner circle, the more convinced I become that it must be something congenital, or something common in the water that they all drank. Because not a single one of these Froot Loops can keep their big fucking mouths shut!
Two Shirts steve Bannon was convicted today on 2 counts of contempt of congress. Why? Not so much because he defied the congressional subpoena, but because he couldn’t keep his big fucking mouth shut! It was on January 5th, after talking to Trump that Bannon said on his idiotic podcast, Mark my words, tomorrow all hell is going to break loose. All hell is going to break loose. It won’t go down how you think it will, so just show up and strap in.
And that’s what the J6 committee latched on to. Hell, Bannon wasn’t even a part of the Trump administration at that point. So how did he have intimate information as to the havoc that would break out the next day? And Bannon not only blew them off, he bragged about it on his podcast and far right media.
Next on deck is former Trump trade advisor Peter Navarro. This walking Port-O-San couldn’t not only resist going on The Beat with Ari Melber on MSNBC 3 times to incriminate himself, he even wrote a sleazy book taking credit for masterminding the Green Bay Sweep to overthrow the election results. And like Two Shirts, Navarro not only defied the committee, he publicly bragged about it.
Now let’s move on to former Trump Chief of Staff, and all purpose idiot Mark Meadows. He was presented with a subpoena from the committee for documents and testimony. While Meadows may have been smart enough to keep his mouth shut, he was stupid enough to turn over more than 9000 pages of documents and text messages, many of which put him in deep kimchi. Whereupon Meadows clammed up and stopped cooperating.
Look, let me make one thing clear. All of these quibbledicks based their defiance on one simple thing, Executive Privilege. But there are two problems with this. First, executive privilege lies with the current President, not his predecessor. And second, executive privilege is not a get-out- of-jail-free card.
Here’s how it works. You can’t just defy a subpoena on a claim of executive privilege. You actually have to show up, sit down, and be sworn in. Then you must answer any questions for which the privilege would not qualify, and then claim the privilege for questions where you8 believe the privilege protects your answer. And then you leave it up to your lawyers and the committee to battle disputes out in court. That’s why these ass clowns got nicked, they shortcut the system.
And let’s not end tonights article without mentioning everybody’s favorite all purpose scumbag, former Trump campaign advisor Boris Epshteyn. Like Peter Navarro, Epsteyn couldn’t resist going onto The Beat, and implicating himself. He admitted to making phone calls to bogus Michigan electors to advise them to fill out the ballots, but said that his script was legally approved by Rudy Giuliani. Since the DOJ is looking into the fake elector scheme, and you can bet your ass that Fani Willis will be looking to see if Epshteyn made any calls to Georgia fake electors, look for subpoenas to follow.
When you strip it to its core, it all comes down to arrogance. Because Trump was bulletproof, they all felt bulletproof too. More importantly, they all felt that at least one of their hare brained schemes would keep Trump in power, and protect them for 4 more years.
And now Traitor Tot is gone, their invincibility shield has evaporated, and their collective asses are hanging out in the wind. This is going to get interesting, real quick. Don’t touch that dial.
