You can’t blame Trump for the January 6 riots and election lies. He was just “following the internet.”


Until then ThursdayLike a terribly corrupt egoist, at a committee hearing on January 6, when former President Donald Trump tried to maintain power at the expense of democracy and the votes of millions of Americans. I felt I could see it.

But something new Latest inquiryTestified in detail and in detail how a former Republican official who worked for the Justice Department under the Trump administration pushed the Justice Department to support the allegations of widespread fraudulent voting by the former president. Featured that you are.

Former Deputy Prosecutor-General Richard Donohue, relying on His own simultaneous notes“You may not be following the Internet like I am,” recalling a meeting in which a series of fraudulent election conspiracy theories were uncovered by justice ministry officials.

“Leave the rest to me and Republicans.”

Wow. That’s not what I was thinking before. Yes, more than 12 Republicans in office in the Trump administration have sworn to the Commission that there is no evidence that the election was stolen. On the other hand, the former president may have followed the Internet more strongly than anyone else, and may have known that those who do not follow the Internet less often do not know.

Former Deputy Attorney General Richard Donohue told President Donald Trump that the Justice Department could not participate in state elections.

It’s just that, as Donohue recalled in his testimony, Trump told him, DOJ said, “It’s corrupt. Leave the rest to me and Republicans.. “

Texas Politics: Homosexuals belong to Trump’s Republican Party, even though the Texas GOP calls it “abnormal.”

Even without knowing about Mar-a-Lago’s extensive internet tracking man, the quote tells US government law enforcement agencies to make some hooeys to give him and his dullness. May sound like the most powerful person in the world-the witty parliamentary kowtowers cover to lie and steal elections.

But obviously it wasn’t. Trump’s greedy desire for online knowledge must have led him to know something that everyone else was missing. It’s like when I knew virtually nothing about how Alaska’s High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program is a mind control device. I read the internet And I learned that it is definitely a mind control device, not a research facility that studies “characteristics and behavior of the ionosphere.” Program website Can you believe me

Trump and Republicans: The prestigious man shows us the “tragic parody” of Trump radicalism that plagues the Republicans.

I “follow the internet” and it helped me “know the truth”. So the fact that these DOJs didn’t follow the internet like Trump raises quite serious questions about their testimony. So who would you ask if the internet says something is real? Without the internet, I wouldn’t have been able to meet my former prince Nigerian friend. I was able to send him my bank account and social security number to help with the bill.

“Pure madness” – or was it?

Witnesses to the hearing on Thursday said, “ItalyGate“Based on social media videos, the belief that an Italian defense contractor used satellites to change Trump’s vote to Biden’s vote.

It doesn’t really make you think.

Donohue saidPure madness“Former attorney Jeffrey Rosen testified.UncoveredI passed the Ministry of Justice and went to the Department of Defense. According to the testimony there, then Secretary of Defense Christopher Miller called an Italian official to ask for an investigation.

Adam Kinzinger, a member of the Republican Party’s January 6th Commission, said: Scrutinize the internet to support his conspiracy theory.. “

In honor, Congressman Kinzinger, Donald Trump, wasn’t “reconnaissance the Internet.” He “was doing his own research,” and our people, who gargled the horse’s anthelmintic to get rid of COVID-19 and were involved in the hospital only 11 times, find it true. I know it’s the smart way.

Seeking some amnesty just in case

Also, on Thursday, many Republicans were so confident in following the former president’s Internet that he was so confident. Requested amnesty In connection with their attempt to overturn the election before he resigned.

Mr. Trump said in a testimony record that a former presidential aide had made a toy to give “total amnesty” to those involved in the activities until January 6, 2021. Email from Republican Mo Brooks on January 11th, R-Ala. Was shown during the hearing. In it, Brooks sought amnesty from “all MPs and senators who voted to refuse to vote for electoral colleges from Arizona and Pennsylvania.”

If you follow the internet a bit, you’ll see a cunning suggestion that anyone seeking a pardon should know they’ve done something illegal.

But if you’re a more enthusiastic internet follower or former president Trump like me, you’ll find something like this Tweet What I sent Thursday: “Hey, who of us has never engaged in a mild coup at different times of our lives?”

Trump can’t be blamed for telling millions of Americans that the elections have been stolen and that they should send him money they don’t have right away.or Can you blame me Brooks or Rep. Matt Gaetz or Rep. Louie Gohmert or Rep. Scott Perry or Rep. AndyBiggs asked for a coup-related amnesty.

They are following the internet, everyone. If you can’t trust it, what can you trust?
