I'm #AlexJones' ex-wife, & I lost my kids for speaking out against infowars.

I have insider info I believe relevant to the #January6thCommitteeHearings. Pls share

Who is this man telling Alex, "it's time to storm the Capitol?" (00:23) Who is communicating w him via headphones?
Original and slowed down clip of security guard speaking to Alex Jones: It sounds like he could be saying, "It's time to storm the Capitol... They need us backstage." Any audio engineers out there who can learn this up?

.@Liz_Cheney reveals at end of #Jan6thHearings #Trump called a #Jan6thCommittee witness we have not yet seen. The witness did not take the call but told their lawyer. The lawyer told the Committee. The Committee referred it to #DOJ. #USAG, is this enuf for #WitnessTampering yet? Image
Other shattering testimony:
- The 12/18 meeting #TFG held in #OvalOffice with #SidneyPowell, #MikeFlynn, #Giuliani, & aides was “unhinged”-loud screaming, name-calling, almost coming to fisticuffs.
- They were there to discuss draft order to seize voting machines in key states.
- It was revealed at 12/18 meeting that #Trump had named #SidneyPowell as special counsel to prosecute cases related to the voting machines. Supposedly gave her a “security clearance.”

@DonaldJTrumpJr Yea this wall?

Ukraine has been a great ally.

Let's put this in perspective.

2014 TFG u call daddy was asked how he is paying 4 golf courses. TFG: “sort of tossed off that he had access to $100 million,”

James Dodson "I said, 'Eric, who’s funding? I know no banks...1/2
@DonaldJTrumpJr 2/2..."

Eric: Well, we don’t rely on American banks. We have all the funding we need out of Russia.

2- U met with a Russian spy to collect dirt on Clinton.

3-He asked Russia for help to find Clinton's emails.

4- Russia had a very strong misinformation campaign backing him up
@DonaldJTrumpJr 5- His campaign manager gave election information to Russians. He later was indicted, convicted and pardon by Trump.

6- His NSA chief Flynn promised to lift Obama sanctions behind the doors prior to Trump inauguration, was indicted.

7- In Helsinki the whole world watched him...

Former Twitter employee, knowing that extremists were ready to take up arms: "Trump posting this tweet on Dec 19th was essentially staking a flag in D.C. on Jan 6 for his supporters to come and rally." #January6thCommitteeHearing

During the #January6thCommitteeHearings, Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-Md.) detailed a Dec. 18 White House meeting in which Trump allies tried to convince him to sign an executive order to seize voting machines.

latimes.com/politics/story…
Last month, The Times reviewed documents that appeared to be one of the earliest iterations of a draft executive order presented to the then-president in the Oval Office on Dec. 18, 2020, in an effort to take control of voting machines.

latimes.com/politics/story…
Supporters on the fringes of former President Trump’s circle explored seeking sweeping authority after the 2020 election to enlist armed private contractors to seize and inspect voting machines and election data with the assistance of U.S. marshals.

Rep. Stephanie Murphy setting up how everything after Dec. 14--after Electoral College was decided, after multiple courts rejected Trump's challenges--Trump et al persisted in attacking election results. She shows video of Mitch McConnell congratulating President-elect on 12/15.
In depo testimony, Eugene Scalia, who was Trump's Labor Secretary, recounts how he told Trump he should concede.
Cipollone agreed there was no evidence of fraud sufficient to overturn election. We see Cipollone for the first time in his under videotaped testimony right now. #January6thCommitteeHearings

The committee investigating the Capitol insurrection will focus for the first time on the relationship between people in former President Trump’s orbit and the extremist groups that planned and orchestrated the violence on Jan. 6, 2021.

latimes.com/politics/story…
Today's hearing could be one of the most consequential held by the panel, potentially answering the long unresolved question of whether Trump knew that far-right extremist groups such as the Proud Boys and Oath Keepers would storm the Capitol.

latimes.com/politics/story…
It could also potentially answer whether Trump was in contact through intermediaries with the groups’ leaders, who have since been indicted for seditious conspiracy.

What has surprised @DavidPriess the most about the hearings?

He was not prepared for new information we've learned--after last hearing, the bar is high. He calls it "must see TV."

#January6thCommitteeHearings
@DavidPriess .@mollyereynolds thinks the hearings show what Congress is capable of when a committee has the resources.

@nkorpett praises the coherent narrative the committee has been able to show. She's done investigations before.

Here’s why Cassidy Hutchinson’s testimony to the January 6th committee was the end for Trump from a prosecution standpoint
(Thread)
Trump’s whole “case” relies on 3 “defenses”:
1. He really believed he had won the election and it was “stolen from him”
2. He exercised what he thought were his legal options in response to that; and the mob he incited was just an unplanned protest that got out of hand
3. He didn’t know how bad it was getting at the Capitol, otherwise he would have called off his supporters

Trump’s whole defense relies on plausible deniability.

The January 6th committee has systematically and unequivocally destroyed each line of his defense one by one.

Ich würde mal wetten: Nach dieser Anhörung führt kein Weg mehr an einem strafrechtlichen Ermittlungsverfahren gegen Donald #Trump (und anderen) vorbei. Und zwar eher morgen als in ein paar Monaten. #January6thCommiteeHearings
*andere. Dang.
Wichtigste Indizien (tbc):

- Die bewusste Ignoranz der Bewaffnung und Gewaltbereitschaft
- Die Tatsache, dass man sich in einem "War Room" versammelte, aber nach außen alles herunterspielte
- Das Zitat über die Morddrohung gegen Pence

Listening to the #January6thCommitteeHearings and #Hutchinson testifying, while writing another article and holy shit, you have to tune in. This is wild. Trump didn't care if they had guns. This was a coup attempt.
Trump KNEW it could and likely WOULD turn violent. He did not care. "They're not here to hurt me", he said, according to witness testimony. #January6thCommitteeHearings
Dear god. #Hutchinson testifying that she spoke to Kevin McCarthy and he asked her why Trump said that they were marching to the capitol. The plans for the capitol had apparently included plans for what Trump would do once at the capitol.

“Are you excited for the 6th? it’s going to be a great day…
“Talk to the Chief he knows…
“We’re going to the Capitol”

Hutchinson went back to the office and asked her boss Mark Meadows what Rudy meant.

He looked up from his phone and said,

“Things might get real real bad on the 6th”

1/ THREAD: Cassidy Hutchinson, as Rep. Liz Cheney refers to her, during Cheney's opening statement. Ms. Hutchinson displays a HABE (Hair Adjustment Behind Ear). #BodyLanguageExpert #BodyLanguage #January6thCommitteeHearings Image
2/ A display performed by people who perceive themselves to be relatively alpha, but who are in temporary beta moments and trying to reacquire their Alpha emotional tone. This is but one example of what are known as 'Alpha Upregulators'.
3/ While, a Hair Adjustment Behind Ear is more common on people with longer hair, it is displayed by all genders, and even with those who are bald.

#HATH Ms. Hutchinson graduated from college in 2019. Whatever we're about to hear, I cannot imagine the threats that have already been made against her, how many will be made, and the fact that she's the age of students who have graduated since I started this job.
#HATH And here we go. January 6th and names.
#HATH I mean, so Giuliani and Meadows knew about plans for J6. Intel reports about the threat of violence on J6, in large quantities, from numerous groups. Ratcliffe worried in December about the threat to democracy because of things the administration was pushing. Just... yeah.
