Trump smiles at his dog…
1. Standard Operating Procedure. One of the first things you learn as a modern gangster: don’t address any incriminating evidence directly to the Boss. Send it to a trained dog who will carry stuff to the boss. Bright enough to keep it separate from his usual butt-kissing gig. Rick Perry and Mark Meadows understood at least that much.
2. TCB and screw the law!.
Members of the House Select Committee investigating the January 6 attack on the US Capitol believe that former Texas Governor and Trump Energy Secretary Rick Perry was the author of a text message sent to then-White House chief of staff Mark Meadows the day after the 2020 election pushing an “AGRESSIVE (sic) STRATEGY” for three state legislatures to ignore the will of their voters and deliver their states’ electors to Donald Trump, three sources familiar with the House Committee investigation tell CNN…
The cell phone number the text was sent from, obtained from a source knowledgeable about the investigation, appears in databases as being registered to a James Richard Perry of Texas, the former governor’s full name.
The number is also associated in a second database as registered to a Department of Energy email address associated with Perry when he was secretary. When told of these facts, (Perry’s) spokesman had no explanation…
The text was first presented publicly on the House floor Tuesday night by Rep. Jamie Raskin, a Maryland Democrat, and reads: “HERE’s an AGRESSIVE (sic) STRATEGY: Why can t (sic) the states of GA NC PENN and other R controlled state houses declare this is BS (where conflicts and election not called that night) and just send their own electors to vote and have it go to the SCOTUS.”
Raskin cited the text in the debate over holding Meadows in criminal contempt of Congress, using it as an example of evidence that needed further explanation from Meadows, which the former chief of staff is refusing to provide.
“How did this text influence the planning of Mark Meadows and Donald Trump to try to destroy the lawful electoral college majority that had been established by the people of the United States and the states for Joe Biden,” Raskin asked. “Those are the kinds of questions that we have a right to ask Mark Meadows.”
If anyone in Congress had more backbone than an earthworm, they would start out by asking the relevant crooks – Trump and Perry. Meadows only has to have his buttons pushed once to admit he was an errand boy…or hide behind some legalistic crappola. Then, the Congressional suits can carry on with Twenty Questions, indict the scum-suckers, give ’em their day in court. Go back to pretending they give a royal crap about our democracy.
