As Urs reported earlier today, Donald Trump went into an insane rage upon hearing that his attorney, Evan Corcoran was subpoenaed by Special Prosecutor Jack Smith. The baby behaved like a baby with a Hall of Fame verbal panic attack:
Radical Left (Trump hating!) Special “Prosecutor” Jack Smith is leaking to the Fake News Media like a sieve. He is going absolutely crazy trying to nab the political candidate who is way ahead of his “boss” in the polls, and won the 2020 Presidential Election, except for the fact that it was RIGGED. He’s got a job to do, and is working hard to scare & intimidate witnesses, even lawyers who have never seen such antics before. He should be looking at Election Fraud, & who SPIED ON MY CAMPAIGN!!!
Our once great Country has never seen Political Weaponization like they are seeing today. This is the Gestapo and KGB all wrapped up into one. We’ve got to take our Country back and MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!!!
At the time, Trump was reacting to the news that Special Prosecutor Jack Smith was doing his job and subpoenaing the real witnesses, the ones with so much to lose, they could put Trump in prison. Little did Trump know, he had it good this morning.
Just an hour ago, he – and Trump – learned that Smith subpoenaed Mark Meadows “sometime in January.”
Special counsel Jack Smith’s office is seeking documents and testimony related to January 6, and Meadows received the subpoena sometime in January, the source said. An attorney for Meadows declined to comment…
… The move to subpoena one of Trump’s most senior aides – in addition to the recent subpoena of former Vice President Mike Pence, as CNN reported last week – marks the latest significant step in the special counsel’s investigation into Trump’s role in seeking to overturn the outcome of the 2020 election.
So, in the last two days, Jack Smith has subpoenaed Mike Pence, Evan Corcoran (Trump’s attorney during the documents dispute), and we hear that he subpoenaed Mark Meadows in January.
I am stunned.
I am not stunned that Smith issued the subpoenas. Well, sort of. I am not stunned by the witnesses. I am stunned and furious, absolutely FURIOUS, that these people had not been subpoenaed until NOW??
The second Congressional primetime hearing on January 6th, the one that occurred last summer, made it all too clear that Mark Meadows was the spoke in the wheel of all things illegal in the Trump administration. Pence was the man who was pressured directly by Trump, and Evan Corcoran was Trump’s attorney while they were signing off on the fact that all files had been returned.
AND GARLAND AND HIS TEAM LET THE ENTIRE INVESTIGATION GO BY WITHOUT A SUBPOENA GOING OUT TO ANY OF THEM!!!!!!
Wow, it is almost like Garland didn’t want to prosecute Trump. I didn’t think I could possibly think less of A.G. Garland and then I hear that SMITH, not the DOJ, subpoenaed Meadows in January.
As I often say, I am not 1% of the attorney that Jack Smith is, or Merrick Garland. But I can recognize a man who wanted to go a full term without having to deal with Donald Trump when I see him. Garland didn’t even seem to get a real investigation going until Congress started to embarrass DOJ for prosecuting “window breakers” but not the man who organized the war.
I will get pushback in the comments about Garland and building a case and I welcome them. Garland has been a massive failure, a major disappointment. His dilatory tactics and fearfulness of prosecuting true evil, real criminality, the type that threatens democracy, has now set us SO FAR BACK that we’re just now subpoenaing the people who knew what was going on? Now as GOP candidates announce for the NEXT election?
One needs the most solid case in existence to go after a former president. But you build that solid case the moment you know of a crime. That is as of March 2021 (When Garland was sworn in) with respect to January 6th, and that was August of 2022, a case that should have been wrapped up well before November.
But notice that Garland delayed into November… knowing Trump would announce, giving Garland the chance to put it in someone else’s lap… We were told “It won’t delay the investigation.” Ironically, it turned out to be true. The investigation wasn’t even half done and now here we are, going into 2023-24. Fcking amazing.
This is almost as embarrassing as it is dangerous.
