We know why McCarthy isn't interested in seeing anything about Jan 6th. It's a reminder that it really happened, along with everyone remembering him pleading with 45 for help and getting none.
Republicans of that nature have been afraid since the Tea Party made "primaried" a verb.I don’t agree with their ideology, but I will say Trump supporters achieved one major objective, at least as far as the Republicans, the government fearing the people. But their politicians are so spineless and short sided that they can’t see this isn’t sustainable and they will ultimately pay a price for prolonging it.

We need a third party. I think something like 30% of people identify as Republicans. And of those, even if a majority are hard-core Trump supporters, you’re talking about 16% of the population? And they’re basically running things. If the GOP won’t kick the nutters out, they become the party of the insane.Despite what the media would have you believe, Trump supporters don't make up half the country because not even Republicans or Demorcats make up half the country. Too lazy to look it up, but some recent respected poll showed that more Americans are either independents or not registered with either party and this was the first time in history. And as Romney correctly pointed out, the Republican's recent actions aren't going to inspire anybody new to join the party while inspiring many to leave. The nutters are already in the party,

Considering they didn’t move the Derek Chauvin trial out of Minneapolis, I will give this about a 0% chance of working.What The F?!!
How fucking entitled snugly in your White privilege can you be?
"I can't be tried WHERE I committed the crime your honor. I need to be tried in front of a jury of my peers and a judge who let me go on business trips to Mexico for this to be fair to ME."
Let anyone else try that defense.
No wonder they believe their guy should win an election even if he got less votes & less of the electoral college. "It has to be fair to ME".
The group that HATES "cancel culture", NOW wants to use that as a legal defense.
Price increase was ‘security tactic to prevent protesters booking rooms’ in case people travelled to Washington in early Marchwww.theguardian.com
When your dear 'leader' isn't as welcoming of you, as you are of him.Police intelligence documents show that Washington’s Trump Hotel raised its rates “as a security tactic”, in the hope of deterring Trump-supporting QAnon supporters from staying there in early March, on a day which some believed would see Trump restored to office.
The information, which police gleaned from a Business Insider version of a story published in Forbes on 6 February, was confirmed in an 8 February intelligence briefing stolen by ransomware hackers from Washington’s Metropolitan police department (MPD).
The hackers from the Babuk group subsequently published those documents online, and transparency group Distributed Denial of Secrets redistributed them to news outlets including the Guardian.
As Forbes reported in February, Trump International hotel in Washington raised its rates to 180% of the normal seasonal charge for 3 and 4 March this year.
That was a date upon which some adherents to the QAnon conspiracy movement believed would see Trump once again sworn in as president, based on an interpretation of the US constitution influenced by a belief held by many “sovereign citizens” that the US government was secretly usurped by a foreign corporation in 1871, and all legal and constitutional changes since that date are illegitimate.
Rep. Mo Brooks is avoiding an insurrection lawsuit. Rep. Eric Swalwell hired a private investigator to find him.Republican Rep. Mo Brooks is avoiding a lawsuit from his Democratic colleague Rep.

(CNN)Republican Rep. Mo Brooks is avoiding a lawsuit from his Democratic colleague Rep. Eric Swalwell that seeks to hold him accountable for the January 6 Capitol insurrection -- so much so that Swalwell's attorneys hired a private investigator to find him.
The detail comes in a court filing Wednesday in which Swalwell's attorneys describe difficulty in serving Brooks with the lawsuit. CNN has reached out to Brooks' office for comment.
Federal Judge Amit Mehta, after learning of Swalwell's inability to serve Brooks with the lawsuit, gave the Democrat's legal team another 60 days to get to Brooks with their formal notification. The judge, however, won't allow the US Marshals to deliver the lawsuit to the Republican congressman "due to separation of powers concerns," Mehta wrote, after Swalwell asked for the US Marshals Service's help.
After Swalwell -- a California Democrat -- sued in March, his attorneys tried to reach the Alabama Republican through calls to the congressman's office and by sending a letter to formally provide him notice he had been sued, a necessary step in this type of court proceeding.
When they couldn't get the lawsuit to Brooks, the Swalwell legal team hired a private investigator to find him -- only to be hampered in April and May partly by the visitor lockdowns around the US Capitol complex, which were put in place for Congress' protection after the siege, according to their filing Wednesday.
"Counsel spoke to two different staff members on two separate occasions, and each time was promised a return call that never came," Swalwell's attorneys wrote on Wednesday.
I still remember fucking Trump and his infamous words: Pround Boys stand back and stand by!
A realThe Head piece of shit that one.
