Those who lie(d) for Trump should be held accountable

Don’t let the chronic liars cash in on their dishonesty. Press secretaries like Joe Lockhart, Ari Fleischer and Jay Carney, who left the White House with their reputations in various stages of intact, made millions taking their skills — and credibility — to corporate America. Trump’s liars don’t merit that same golden parachute. Let it be known to the business world: Hire any of Trump’s fellow fabulists above, and Forbes will assume that everything your company or firm talks about is a lie. We’re going to scrutinize, double-check, investigate with the same skepticism we’d approach a Trump tweet. Want to ensure the world’s biggest business media brand approaches you as a potential funnel of disinformation? Then hire away.

I second that emotion!

    “‘Cowboys for Trump’ leader, far-right video blogger among latest Capitol siege arrests” https://abcnews.go.com/US/man-holding-confederate-flag-latest-capitol-siege-arrests/story?id=75256246 [note mention that “The FBI sent a report to law enforcement partners Sunday saying that some insurrectionists who attacked the Capitol on Jan. 6 set up communication mechanisms in advance of the riots, according to a copy of the memo that was obtained by ABC News.
    The “militia violent extremists,” used amateur HAM radios and frequencies that were pre-programmed prior to their arrival in Washington, D.C., to communicate their plans, the memo said.”]
    p/s re: Federal arrest of ‘Cowboys for Trump’ founder and Otero County Commissioner Couy Griffin for his role in the Jan. 6 Capitol riots, see local report https://abq.news/2021/01/read-the-warrant-fbi-capitol-police-arrest-cowboys-4-trump-founder-for-role-in-insurgence/
    Griffin has been at the center of controversy before for saying “the only good Democrat is a dead Democrat” and saying that some Black athletes should “go back to Africa.”
    Article includes the criminal complaint against Griffin
