I’ll bet Tom Clancy is shaking his head right now and thinking how anything he wrote was superficial bupkis compared to how the real pros in the Trump White House cobbled together intrigue for a living. Bennie Thompson shared an interesting tidbit on Sunday morning. First, he revealed that the January 6 Committee had spoken to Bill Barr. He said, “former attorney general” so I assume that is Barr, although I suppose it could be somebody else.
Then he revealed more details on the fake electors plot.
Again, get ready for goosebumps as you realize how the machinery of evil was in full force in Washington, D.C. trying to overthrow democracy.

Who is the “potential person” he’s talking about? Jeffrey Clarke? Bill Barr announced on December 14 that he was leaving office December 23. So was Clarke going to be named?
Or maybe, and this is insane, but stay with me: maybe Rudy Giuliani was going to achieve his life’s dream and become the attorney general, albeit it for a very short time? The reason I propose this admittedly off the walls idea is because it’s been established that Giuliani oversaw the fake elector plots in seven swing states. If he was nuts enough to do that, he was nuts enough to get Trump to appoint him attorney general.
Giuliani’s drinking is well known but I’m not sure it’s equally well known how much alcohol can warp somebody’s judgement and produce insane behavior. Giuliani’s role in Trump’s administration was one that got progressively more and more bizarre as time went on, starting with his advice to Trump on election night to just go ahead and announce that he won, going all the way through a conspiracy to knock out legitimate electors and install false ones, and have their signed fraudulent certifications be substituted for the real certifications. Joseph McCarthy was also an alcoholic and look at the madness he perpetrated on the government in his day. Both are a pair of evil, insane drunks.
I think it’s safe to conjecture that Bill Barr was asked to participate in the fraudulent election certification plot, or at least that he knew about it.
So, as Thompson says, if a new attorney general would tell the officials in the swing states that they needn’t produce their certification, then the fake certifications would have gone into place and voila, stolen election. The score, GOP 1, Democracy 0. Game over for the United States and the 240 year experiment in the rule of law in a democratic republic.
D: Trump’s going to run again and try another coup when he loses
R: TDS! ?
FOX: Approximately 75% of registered Republicans believe Trump won in 2020 and would approve of a Constitutional amendment to make him President forever

The January 6 Committee will reveal, hopefully, who was actually running the show in Trump’s last days. You saw yesterday, if you read the post here on the draft of the executive order, ordering the military to seize voting machines, that a draft of a Trump speech condemning the violence was supposed to have been delivered on January 7 by Trump but never was. Why? Who was giving the orders?
This is not the America we grew up in, folks. And I don’t care if you’re only 20, it’s not the America you grew up in either. If you’re five, then yes it is. And maybe this is the shape of things to come and nothing can change it. I certainly don’t want to think that way, but we have to be prepared for the worst.
