If Democrats don't cut ads from Richard Donoghue's remarks to Trump in the Oval Office and run them straight through the midterms, it'll be an enormous missed opportunity.
Listening to this #Jan6Hearings, I'm reminded that more Americans voted for the smart lady than that treasonous idiot syphilitic chode.
Liz Cheney, Kinzinger & Rosen made it clear Jeffrey Clark & Republican Congressmen are about to go through some things. Biggs, Gosar, Gaetz, Jordan, Brooks, Scott Perry & Marjorie Taylor Greene?
Bombshell revelation at #Jan6Hearings today: These are the six losers who asked trump for preemptive presidential pardons for their roles in the January 6 Insurrection. Very telling. https://t.co/kDMspZYAme
Fun Fact: Hunter Biden and Hillary Clinton never asked for a pardon.
Matt Gaetz did.
Twice impeached former guy Trump:
"Just say that the election was corrupt and leave the rest to me and Republican congressmen." #Jan6Hearings
Rep. Adam Kinzinger says hearing will expose "Trump's total disregard for the Constitution and his oath"
The closing montage slash preview of witnesses testifying that Gaetz, Greene, etc. all asked for pardons is incredibly compelling.
Only the guilty ask for blanket #pardons.
Marjorie Taylor Greene
Teach your children to be a Lady Ruby Freeman, not a Trump.

Members of Congress who helped Trump's attempt to overturn the election.
Paul Gosar, Matt Gaetz, Jim Jordan, Mo Brooks, Louie Gohmert , Andy Biggs & Kevin McCarthy etc etc
147 Republicans signed a letter to reject the election. https://t.co/UlxVn6vKGt
Today’s #Jan6Hearings are the last until July—so it’s worth highlighting today that Wisconsin’s role in the attempt to overturn our democracy wasn’t limited to Ron Johnson. It was a project that consumed most of the state’s GOP… and still does. THREAD
Only criminal Presidents try to seize voting machines.
That's why #TrumpIsACriminal.
Kinzinger is showing Trump, Jeffrey Clark, Representative Scott Perry & others were ready to trash The Constitution.
🚨🚨NEW: The NYT is reporting that the Jan. 6 committee plans to unveil new evidence in today's hearing about how Donald Trump tried to manipulate the DOJ to help him cling to power after he lost the 2020 election.
The #Jan6Hearings will start at 3 pm. Tune in!
Summary of the #Jan6Hearings so far:
#1: Trump is guilty of assembling the Jan. 6 mob.
#2: Trump is guilty of lying to the American people.
#3: Trump is guilty of forsaking his own VP.
#4: Trump is guilty of sending his fans and followers to harass innocent Americans.
Former acting deputy AG Richard Donoghue recalled a direct quote from Trump in December 2020 saying:
“What I’m just asking you to do is say it was corrupt and leave the rest to me and the Republican congressmen” #Jan6Hearings https://t.co/JWfKMWVM5R
NOTABLE: Despite repeatedly being told that there was no widespread fraud, Trump asked Rosen and Donoghue on December 27, 2021 to “just say the election was corrupt + leave the rest to me and the R Congressmen” — a direct quote, as Donoghue told @JudiciaryDems
#thursdaymorning #ThursdayVibes Waking up to GOP infighting shows how reprobated disrespectful& unprincipled Repub.are to each other & Amer. Marge called McConnell Graham & 12 Repub.Colleagues failures/As Dems. Remain united awaiting Day5

WATCH: Jan. 6 Cmte. shares texts between Rep. Scott Perry and then-White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadow, in which Perry urges Meadows to elevate Jeffery Clark within the Justice Dept. #jan6hearings https://t.co/MCCiiZcF4H
Why are these fascist MAGA traitors still in Congress???
Every damn one of them.

White House call logs obtained by Jan. 6 Cmte. show that the White House referred to Jeffrey Clark as "acting Attorney General" ahead of meeting in which Donald Trump discussed appointing Clark as acting AG. #Jan6hearings https://t.co/RdYLvfum24
Today’s stunning #Jan6Hearings revelations again underscore that if AG Merrick Garland and @TheJusticeDept
do not indict Donald Trump before the November midterms - so voters understand actual crimes were committed - it will be an act of dereliction, malpractice and capitulation.
Being a cult survivor myself, watching this whole thing play out has been especially painful. This will be for the historians to study, how quickly a charismatic cult leader can convince their followers to commit gruesome crimes. #Jan6Hearings #January6thCommitteeHearings #exjw
Sean Penn sat with officers who defended the U.S. Capitol during the Jan. 6, 2021, attack by supporters of former President Trump in an attempt to overturn the results of the 2020 election.
“People tell me Jeff Clark is great. I should put him in [DOJ leadership].” — President Trump, 12/27
“[Jeffrey Clark's] the kind of guy who could really get in there and do something about this.” — Rep. Perry, 12/27
This was a Trump Republican takeover of DOJ. #Jan6Hearings https://t.co/VxZkbKB8RJ
The plan for this coup by Donald Trump must be talked about in every corner. Make a vow to talk about it with even those who you know may not want to hear about it! Do it for heroes like Officer Edwards! Do it for the future of our democracy! #jan6commision #Jan6Hearings https://t.co/FgW7RchaQ7
Trump needs to be charged with treason, along with everyone, who was in on the biggest scam in American History!
“Just say that the election was corrupt and leave the rest to me and the Republican congressmen."
Trump thought if the DOJ sowed enough doubt, maybe he and his pardon-seeking GOP allies could pull this coup off.
