Trump Attorney Announces Laughable Lawsuit Against CNN for Accurately Calling Trump a Liar

Donald Trump is nothing if not predictable. Whenever he encounters bad news he responds reflexively by going on the attack. Often that manifests in his declaring an intention to file a lawsuit against those he deems to have offended him. For the most part, his antics fail to achieve anything except to waste the time of the court and/or to humiliate himself.

Donald Trump, CNN

With the profoundly effective investigation of the January 6th insurrection being conducted by the House Select Committee, Trump is at it again. The Committee is masterfully presenting evidence of the multitude of crimes that Trump has committed. So in a transparent attempt to deflect attention from his legal peril, he is flinging ludicrous threats of lawsuits around that have no plausible chance of success.

RELATED: REPORT: Trump is ‘Fixated’ on the January 6th Hearings and Obsessed with How He is Coming Across

Lindsey Halligan, one of a string of Trump’s incompetent attorneys, appeared this week on recently convicted Steve Bannon’s ‘War Room’ podcast to announce a threat to sue CNN. The complaint is typically preposterous and offers more opportunity for comedy than for anything of any legal importance. Halligan told Bannon that…

“CNN branded president Trump as a liar and referred to his questions regarding voter fraud as the ‘Big Lie,’ which is actually linked to Adolph Hitler. So it’s pretty simple. If you’re going to call someone a liar, back it up with research, well founded facts. Otherwise, don’t report it. Don’t distort the truth. […] CNN responded to our letter today, advising us that they will not retract any of the statements. So they will be getting served with a lawsuit very shortly, I believe.”

This lawsuit could be the hottest streaming entertainment of the season. If Trump hopes to make the case that CNN defamed him by calling him a liar, he’s going to have to produce evidence that CNN’s reporting is false. That’s going to be be a tough sell considering that Trump has been documented to have told more than 30,000 lies during occupancy of the White House.

Specifically with regard to the “Big Lie” that the 2020 presidential election was “rigged” and “stolen” from him, Trump will need to contradict all of his own White House aides who advised him that there was no significant voter fraud. They include his FBI director, Chris Wray, his DHS chief of cybersecurity, Chris Krebs, and his Attorney General, Bill Barr, who called such claims “bullshit.”

Consequently, CNN will have little trouble affirming the accuracy of their reporting. What’s more, through the process of discovery, they can force Trump to provide further proof that he was repeatedly warned that his election fraud allegations were totally bogus. Which will result in this lawsuit suffering the same fate that his prior legal stunts did. For instance…

Trump’s latest legal threat, like those that preceded it, is drawn from the same pool of ignorance that Trump has always wallowed in. It is just another attempt to create a distraction, to abuse the justice system, and to drain donations from his glassy-eyed cult followers. Which, in the big scheme of things, is really all he cares about.

Fox News Hack’s Deranged Defense of Trump’s Insurrection and Coup Plot Backfires Bigly

For more than a year and an half, Fox News has been propping up Donald Trump and his “Big Lie” that the 2020 election was “rigged” and “stolen” from him. All of their Trump-fluffing hosts, contributors, and guests, have participated in the deceit that has driven the nation apart and led to the deadly insurrection on January 6th, 2021.

Donald Trump, Fox News, Lies

Among the most pernicious of Trump’s accessories to sedition is weekend host, Mark Levin. He’s allegedly a lawyer once served as chief of staff to Edwin Meese, Ronald Reagan’s disgraced Attorney General. On the latest episode of his lie-cast, Levin lashed out at the House Select Committee investigating the January 6th insurrection. The premise of this harangue centered on his contention that there was no insurrection at all. Never mind all the video of hundreds of StormTrumpers assaulting Congress as they tried to carry out their constitutional duties to certify the election. But distorting legal arguments is nothing new for Levin.

RELATED: Fox News Legal ‘Expert’ Thinks that ‘Trial of Your Peers’ Means a Jury of All Trump Toadies

Levin’s argument rested on his twisted definition of the word “insurrection.” He clearly doesn’t know what he’s talking about or, more likely, is deliberately mangling the language to disinform his dimwitted viewers (video below). He began…

“If Donald Trump were seriously interested in an insurrection, he would have issued a video, and his video wouldn’t have said what it said. His video would have been a call to arms, right? To leading an insurrection.

He would have called everybody who could hear his voice to come to the Capitol armed, armed, to take over the Capitol building. He would have called out the United States military, whether they would respond or not, to come to the Capitol building, encircle it, arrest the Vice President, and arrest other officials, members of Congress. That’s an insurrection. He would have declared martial law. That’s an insurrection. He didn’t do any of those things. As a matter fact, He didn’t do any of the things people told him he might want to do in order to, quote/unquote, ‘hold onto the presidency.'”

First of all, Trump actually did issue a “call to arms,” when he told his cult followers that they had to “fight like hell,” or they “wouldn’t have a country anymore.” He then told his Deplorable Army – who, according to the aide to his own chief of staff, he knew were armed – to march to the Capitol, even promising that he would be marching with them. And while he didn’t order the arrest of Mike Pence, he did agree that he deserved to be hanged.

Levin also implied that the reason Trump “didn’t do any of those things” that would keep him in power was because that wasn’t his intention. To the contrary, Trump did try to orchestrate a coup, but the people he needed for it to succeed refused to go along with it. So far Levin’s argument is a total bust. But he was just getting started. He continued with a question that was surprisingly fitting, although not for any reason he might have been thinking:

“What am I talking about? He didn’t send out the military to get voting machines, as some have suggested. He didn’t send out the Department of Homeland Security to get drop boxes, as some have suggested. He didn’t fire the Attorney General or the acting Attorney General, as some have suggested. He didn’t appoint a special counsel, as some have suggested. He didn’t do any of it.”

Here is where Levin’s loopy lecture went completely off the rails. Virtually everything he said was a lie. Also, he is not describing an insurrection here. He is describing a coup. Of course, Trump is guilty of attempting both. In this case, however, Trump actually did seek to “send out the military to get voting machines.” He did try to have federal agencies “get drop boxes.” He did plan to “fire the Attorney General or the acting Attorney General,” and replace him with a corrupt crony. He did want his crackpot lawyer, Sydney Powell, to be “appoint[ed] special counsel” He did all of that.

What’s more, Levin left out entirely that Trump also pressured state election officials in Arizona, Georgia, Pennsylvania, etc., to “find votes” for him. And he sought to replace legitimate electors with Trump supporters. And for more than three hours Trump failed to take any action to halt the insurrection that was in progress on Capitol Hill. Instead, he was watching it on Fox News and cheering them on.

Trump’s treachery is well documented. And Levin’s tirade did nothing but affirm his anti-democratic criminality. In fact, the points raised by Levin make a strong case for indicting Trump and his crime syndicate. Even the newspapers owned by Fox News magnate, Rupert Murdoch, are saying that Trump is “unworthy” to serve as president again.

Fox News itself has yet to be so explicit in their criticism. But anchor Bret Baier did comment on how the House Committee’s work is playing out, saying that “Laying out all these 187 minutes makes him look horrific.” However, Baier is a little late. Most Americans had noticed the horror of Donald Trump a long time ago.

WOAH! Rupert Murdoch’s Right-Wing New York Post Scorches Trump as ‘Unworthy’ to Be President

This has been a bad week for Donald Trump. It began with the Pulitzer Board rejecting his preposterous and impotent demand to rescind awards given to the Washington Post and the New York Times for their reporting on his unsavory connections to Russia. And it ended with the conviction of Steve Bannon, his former campaign boss and White House advisor, on two counts of contempt of Congress.

Donald Trump, Fox News, Hate Again

In between, the House Select Committee investigating the January 6th insurrection that Trump incited exposed his flagrant and purposeful negligence during the Capitol Hill riots. The Committee presented testimony and damning video documenting how Trump (who is fixated on the hearings) spent 187 minutes deliberately choosing to do nothing while members of Congress were under attack and law enforcement officers were violently assaulted. Well, he wasn’t exactly doing nothing. He was gleefully watching his StormTrumpers assault the seat of American democracy on Fox News.

RELATED: Tucker Carlson Mocks (and Lies About) the January 6th Committee Hearing that Featured Fox News

On Friday another development took place that is sure to rattle the former reality TV game show host. The New York Post, which is owned by Fox News magnate, Rupert Murdoch, published an editorial titled “Trump’s silence on Jan. 6 is damning.” The article was profoundly critical of Trump and his future electoral prospects. It said in part that…

“As his followers stormed the Capitol, calling on his vice president to be hanged, President Donald Trump sat in his private dining room, watching TV, doing nothing. For three hours, seven minutes.”

And that…

Trump “was the only person who could stop what was happening. He was the only one the crowd was listening to. It was incitement by silence.”

And that…

“To his eternal shame, as appalled aides implored him to publicly call on his followers to go home, he instead further fanned the flames.”

And that…

“His only focus was to find any means — damn the consequences — to block the peaceful transfer of power.”

And finally that…

“It’s up to the Justice Department to decide if this is a crime. But as a matter of principle, as a matter of character, Trump has proven himself unworthy to be this country’s chief executive again.”

Wow! That’s pretty harsh condemnation of the man they’ve been propping up for years. To be clear, this was not merely an op-ed by a guest author with anti-Trump views. This was the official opinion written by the Post’s Editorial Board. And if Trump has lost the New York Post, can Fox News be far behind?

Of course, the Post isn’t altering their hardcore, ultra-rightist political bias. Neither would Fox News be, if/when they adopt this criticism of Trump. It would just be their attempt to cover their asinine worship of Trump for the past seven years as his multitude of crimes become more obvious, his putrid reputation becomes increasingly harder to defend, and his popularity plummets.

Fox News has already begun paving the way for a Trump replacement, even if their audience isn’t quite ready for it. They have been busy elevating Florida’s budding authoritarian governor, Ron DeSantis, as his Herr Apparent. So there seems to be a consensus, that includes Fox News, that the January 6th Committee’s work is having an impact on both the Trump-fluffing media and the public. Hopefully it’s having an impact on Attorney General Merrick Garland as well.

RELATED: Trump is Freaking Out that the January 6th Hearings are So Effectively Illuminating His Crimes

UPDATE: Murdoch’s Wall Street Journal published a similarly critical article of Trump titled “The President Who Stood Still on Jan. 6.” The Journal wrote that…

“Mr. Trump took an oath to defend the Constitution, and he had a duty as Commander in Chief to protect the Capitol from a mob attacking it in his name. He refused. He didn’t call the military to send help. He didn’t call Mr. Pence to check on the safety of his loyal VP. Instead he fed the mob’s anger and let the riot play out.”

UPDATE II: Liz Cheney drops the truth about Murdoch’s newspapers calling Trump unfit and unworthy to be president again. And she does it on Fox News:

GUILTY Steve Bannon Only Has One Disappointment? And It’s Apparently that He’s a Flaming Moron

Justice was served Friday morning when Donald Trump’s former campaign boss and White House advisor, “Sloppy” Steve Bannon was found guilty on two counts of contempt of Congress. It was a pretty open-and-shut case considering that Bannon didn’t even offer a defense for his having refused to comply with lawful subpoenas.

Click here to Tweet this article

Following the verdict, Bannon gave a statement outside of the courthouse, which has been his practice for the past few days that the trial has been in progress. And true to form, Bannon merely unleashed his incoherent rage in bursts of insults and nonsense. After disingenuously “thanking” the jury that convicted him for “whatever they did,” Bannon babbled…

“I only have one disappointment. And that is the gutless members of that show trial committee, the J6 committee, didn’t have the guts to come down here and testify in open court.”

REALLY? Who wants to tell Bannon that the members of the House Select Committee investigating the insurrection that Trump incited, had no obligation to appear before that court? They had no relevant testimony to contribute. They weren’t even asked to show up. The crime that Bannon was charged with was his failure to comply with a lawful subpoena. The evidence of that was obvious and undisputed. Bannon even bragged about it.

Bannon is actually lucky that Committee members weren’t witnesses at his trial. It would only have made things worse for him as they could have supplied more testimony and documentation of his obvious guilt. And yet, he somehow believes that their absence is his sole disappointment? Yeah, right.

Furthermore, Bannon’s hysterical post-verdict venting was a display of Olympic-grade hypocrisy. It was, after all, Bannon who “didn’t have the guts” to “testify in open court” at his own trial. Nor did he have the guts to testify before the January 6th Committee in support of his almighty messiah Trump. Why is that all of Trump’s most devoted disciples have been too scared to take the oath and tell the truth about him? Which Trump has whined about, despite being the reason for it.

RELATED: Crybaby Trump Slams the January 6th Committee For Nixing His Witnesses – Who Refused to Testify

It was Trump who pretended that he could grant executive privilege to potential witnesses so that they would not have to testify. But why would anyone want to prevent testimony from those who they allegedly believed would exonerate them? Even so, Trump eventually released Bannon from that imaginary constraint by waiving the privilege that he didn’t have to begin with. And Bannon still refused to comply with the subpoenas. The only “gutless” party in this matter is Bannon.

RELATED: LOLOL: Trump Waives Privilege He Doesn’t Have So Bannon Can Lie to the January 6th Committee

However, Bannon has good reason to be afraid. His partner in crime, Trump’s former White House trade advisor, Peter Navarro, has already confessed to allegations associated with Trump’s seditious coup conspiracy, and explicitly named Bannon as a co-conspirator. And although Trump issued him a pardon, Bannon could still be liable for tangential crimes related to his border wall scam that ripped off Trump supporters.

Bannon is now directly challenging Rudy Giuliani for the title of Dumbest Trump-Fluffing Blowhard. And if Giuliani doesn’t make any more appearances fondling himself in Borat movies, Bannon may actually take the lead.

Tucker Carlson Mocks (and Lies About) the January 6th Committee Hearing that Featured Fox News

On Thursday the House Select Committee investigating the January 6th insurrection that Donald Trump incited held its eighth session. It was the second session that was broadcast in primetime. The primary focus of this hearing was to provide details about the 187 minutes that the former reality TV game show host did nothing while Congress was under attack by his StormTrumpers.

Click here to Tweet this article

Fox News, Tucker Carlson, QAnon

To be accurate, Trump didn’t actually do nothing. He was earnestly engaged in what is perhaps his favorite pastime, watching television. Specifically, he was watching Fox News for hours and cheering on his army of violent seditionists. He certainly wasn’t performing his duties as president. And the Committee masterfully documented Trump’s blatant and lethal negligence. As Rep. Kinzinger noted

“Whatever your politics, whatever you think about the outcome of the election, we as Americans must all agree on this: Donald Trump’s conduct on January 6th was a supreme violation of his oath of office and a complete dereliction of his duty to our nation.[…] President Trump did not ‘fail’ to act during the 187 minutes between leaving the Ellipse and telling the mob to go home. He ‘chose’ not to act.”

That’s about as righteous a condemnation of Trump’s criminal misconduct as has been articulated since the hearings began. But Trump wasn’t the only subject of condemnation. Fox News was featured in much of the Committee’s presentation. Which is ironic considering that Fox News almost entirely ignored the hearings. Just as they did for the first primetime session, Fox refused to air it live. They are consumed with the fear that their dimwitted viewers might be exposed to some truthful information about their Dear Leader’s malfeasance.

RELATED: Fox News Commits to Keeping Their Viewers Ignorant By Refusing to Air the January 6th Hearings

Consequently, Fox banished the hearings to their low-rated business network, where it couldn’t do much harm to their ultra-MAGA narratives. However, there was a brief mention of the hearings by Fox’s Senior Propagandist, Tucker Carlson. Taking a break from delivering another of his deadly anti-vaccine rants, Carlson babbled that…

“If you’ve ever been in a TV control room, there’s a huge bank of monitors that shows everything that’s on TV. And one of our producers just said that on every other channel they’re playing some kind of January 6th hearing. January 6th? As if that’s the biggest thing going on in America right now.

Now why are they doing this? No one wants to watch it. You know what happened on January 6th. Some guy in Viking horns wandered around on mushrooms and made weird noises, and that was kind of it. It was an ‘insurrection,’ where none the insurrectionists had guns. But it makes the people covering it feel like they lived through Vietnam. More lifestyle liberal narcissism. That’s really the key to everything.”

Not surprisingly, Carlson’s critique was littered with lies. First of all, he’s pretending that his producer had to inform him that the January 6th hearing was in progress. He obviously knew that and was prepared with his pre-packaged and cartoonish put-downs. Secondly, Carlson also knows that the hearings are a major news story because prior broadcasts have garnered huge ratings and their impact has registered in polling.

RELATED: The January 6th Hearings are Driving Public Opinion – And Trump’s Latest Delusional Meltdown

So Carlson’s assertion that “No one wants to watch it,” is pure bullpucky. As is his belittling of the rioters as harmless characters who “wandered around on mushrooms and made weird noises.” Carlson left out that they broke windows, battered down doors, terrorized members of Congress and their staff, and injured more than 140 law enforcement officers, including five who died.

Carlson also lied about the insurrectionists not having guns. Numerous reports document that the rioters were armed at the Capitol and had more weapons stashed nearby. Trump even admitted that he was aware that they were armed and didn’t care because “they aren’t here to hurt me.”

Sean Hannity also briefly covered the hearing, just long enough to call it “a one-sided political smear,” and to blame Democrats for the riots. But if the hearings are one-sided, it’s because almost all of the witnesses giving their accounts under oath are Republicans who worked for Trump. What’s more, Hannity had no evidence to support his contention that Democrats were to blame for the riots that were populated solely by Trump supporters.

It’s too bad that Fox News declined to let their audience see any of the hearings. Because they were referenced several times. Most notably when Committee Vice-Chair Liz Cheney said that…

“We know from employees this TV was tuned to Fox News all afternoon. Here you can see Fox News on the TV showing coverage of the joint session that was airing that day at 1:25. Other witnesses confirm that president Trump was in the dining room with the TV on for more than two and a half hours.”

So although Trump could watch Fox News while the insurrection was in progress, Fox’s viewers couldn’t be told that fact. Not that they would have watched if it were shown. While the ratings for MSNBC, CNN, and the broadcast networks all spiked sharply during the hearings, When Fox aired them during the day they actually lost viewers. Their audience simply can’t handle the truth. It’s a condition that Fox has nurtured in them over many years of cult indoctrination.

Fox News Legal ‘Expert’ Thinks that ‘Trial of Your Peers’ Means a Jury of All Trump Toadies

The Trump-fluffers at Fox News are clearly starting to worry about the fate of their Dear Leader Donald Trump. They are beginning to shift their propaganda from malicious mockery of the House Select Committee investigating the January 6th insurrection incited by Trump, to outright contempt for the American justice system.

Click here to Tweet this article

Fox News, Constitution

There is no clearer sign that Fox News is worried about Trump’s legal peril than their frantic criticism of the courts that will hear his cases. They appear to be accepting the likelihood that Trump will be indicted and that he will have to face a judge and jury to account for his multitude of crimes that run the gamut from financial fraud to sedition.

RELATED: Trump’s Reelection Campaign is Stealing Millions of his Donors’ Dollars for His Legal Bills

Mark Levin is a weekend Fox News host who was once an attorney. He served as chief of staff to disgraced Reagan Attorney General, Edwin Meese. His Fox program is a weekly hour of lies and hate in the service of Trumpism. And this weeks episode was a perfect example of just how low this shameless sycophant will go. In a segment devoted to absolving Trump of any wrongdoing, Levin unleashed a bizarre mangling of legal analysis, saying that…

“If you have a trial and the jury is made up of individuals out of a pool of overwhelmingly partisan Democrats who voted for the opposition – who either voted for Hillary Clinton or Joe Biden – and you have a former president or his surrogates facing that jury, how in the hell are they gonna get a fair trial?

“This whole thing is rigged. It’s a disgrace. From this Committee, to the U.S. Attorney, to the Attorney General of the United States, to the so-called Justice process in Washington, D.C. Why don’t they hold it, if they’re gonna hold it anywhere else, in Utah, or Idaho, or some place like that? No, that would never happen.”

It’s hard to imagine that this cretin ever practiced law. He has no idea what the concept of a “jury of your peers” means. Apparently Levin believes that a defendant should be allowed to select his jurors based on their affinity for the defendant. That’s why the only place he thinks Trump could get a fair trial is in a place like Idaho. That’s not how it works. A jury of peers, in this context, means members of the community where the crime took place. It doesn’t mean a group of those who voted for you.

It isn’t a coincidence that Levin, in his criticism of the justice system, is parroting the language that Trump uses. He asserts, without evidence, that it is “rigged” and a “disgrace.” You could easily mistake his complaints for any random Trump rant about the 2020 presidential election that he lost. And despite Levin’s whining about this trumped up travesty of justice, you know that he would be outraged if a Democrat insisted that a trial be moved to a precinct of lefties in a staunchly blue state.

Levin followed up that perversion of legal principles with an interview of the Chair of the House Republican Conference, Elise Stefanik. Her grasp of the law was no better than Levin’s In the suck-up interview, Stefanik recklessly accused President Biden and his family of being criminals, despite not having a shred of evidence to back up that charge:

“You have the entire Joe Biden family profiting personally off of Joe Biden’s position when he was a sitting vice-president. That is unacceptable in America and imagine if the Republicans ever did that? Democrats would be investigating every aspect of that. And yet in this case they look the other way on all these shameful, shameless, and illegal controversies of Hunter Biden.”

Once again, neither Stefanik, nor any other Republican shill, can produce any proof of any crime by the Bidens. They just relentlessly repeat the allegation in the hope that it sticks and tarnishes their reputations. And the gall of her invitation to “imagine if the Republicans ever did that,” is mind-boggling, considering all of the documented financial improprieties of Trump, Don Jr, Eric, and Ivanka. They were actually prohibited by law from running any charities in New York after being found to have robbed their phony foundation to line their own pockets.

Stefanik went on to disparage the January 6th Committee, which she called (of course) a “witch hunt.” And she complained that Republicans had no ability to appoint members to the Committee, which is a blatant lie. They chose not to appoint any members so that they could later pretend that the Committee was partisan.

RELATED: Crybaby Trump Slams the January 6th Committee For Nixing His Witnesses – Who Refused to Testify

There is an unmistakable stench of defeat in how Fox News and the Republican Party are reconfiguring their strategy to account for the likelihood of Trump indictments. They know that he’s guilty and they are scrambling to find a way to spin it. But the only thing that they are succeeding in doing is to make Trump look more guilty, and themselves more ignorant and desperate.

REPORT: Trump is ‘Fixated’ on the January 6th Hearings and Obsessed with How He is Coming Across

The House Select Committee investigating the January 6th insurrection has produced an abundance of documents and testimony incriminating Donald Trump and many of his seditious co-conspirators. And most of what they have discovered was provided by Republicans who worked for Trump in the White House and his campaigns. No wonder Trump is scared witless about what his former staffers are saying.

Donald Trump, Snowflakes

Throughout the past several weeks that the hearings have been conducted, Trump, and the MAGA media that fawns over him, have dismissed the proceedings as a pointless waste of time that is full of lies and that no one is watching. You might ask how they know about the alleged lying if they aren’t watching.

The truth is that the American people are paying close attention to the hearings. The ratings have been through the roof, with CNN and MSNBC frequently beating Fox News, where the hearings are often ignored. And the resulting change in public opinion is also showing up in recent polling that shows majorities believing that Trump is guilty of inciting the riots on Capitol Hill, and other crimes.

RELATED: Cassidy Hutchinson Testimony for the January 6th Committee Breaks TV Viewing Records

Among the viewers who pretend not to be interested is Trump himself. Never mind that he has been relentlessly whining about what the hearings are revealing. As proof of his emotional retardation, he has labeled the congressional panel the “Unselect Committee” and posts goofy nicknames for its members. It won’t be long before he’s calling them “poopyheads.” But it is clear that he is paying attention. As reported by CNN (video below)

“Former President Donald Trump, who has repeatedly downplayed the significance of the hearings by the House select committee investigating January 6, 2021, has regularly asked those around him in recent days when the televised hearings are going to end — underscoring his private fixation on the damning revelations revealed by some of the committee’s witnesses.

“The six public hearings held thus far have been more effective than many in Trump’s orbit anticipated, including when a former White House aide testified publicly about his behavior the day of the Capitol insurrection.”

According to CNN, sources close to Trump say that he, “has been unable to look away from the hearings,” and has lashed out in profanity-laced tirades because “no one is on the dais defending him.” However, the absence of his defenders is due to GOP minority leader Kevin McCarthy’s pigheaded stubbornness. He refused to appoint any non-compromised Republicans to the panel.

What’s more, Trump’s allies have all refused to show up and testify under oath, even when compelled by subpoenas. That is likely because they are afraid of incriminating themselves and/or their Dear Leader. And of course, Trump could defend himself before the Committee if he weren’t such a coward and so obviously guilty.

The sad truth for Trump is that there is no defense for his treasonous acts. And more evidence is being uncovered daily that should lead to indictments and prosecution. Trump knows this and is sweating it out and badgering his friends privately, while making a fool of himself publicly with his tedious yammering about nonexistent election fraud. It’s a pathetic display that is only bound to get worse going forward.

Newsmax (and Trump) are Still Obsessed with (and Afraid of) Cassidy Hutchinson’s Jan 6 Testimony

Two weeks ago, Cassidy Hutchinson, the aide to Trump’s former chief of staff, Mark Meadows, testified before the House Select Committee investigating the January 6th insurrection that was incited by Donald Trump. And ever since then Trump has been noticeably agitated and frantically determined to malign her in the most grotesquely personal manner.

Click here to Tweet this article

Donald Trump, Twitter

Trump’s fear and animosity, while hateful and dangerous, was understandable considering what Hutchinson revealed. Her testimony affirmed that Trump was aware that weapons were present at his January 6th rally speech, and that he “didn’t f—ing care” because “they aren’t here to hurt me.” She also disclosed Trump’s seething anger had erupted into food flinging temper tantrums. And she told the Committee that White House lawyers were worried about criminal charges, and that several members of Congress had sought pardons from Trump.

RELATED: The Crimes Trump Can (Should) Be Indicted For Now, According to Watergate Prosecutor and Others

The fact that Hutchinson’s testimony was so broadly viewed by record TV audiences is also likely a source of intense dread for Trump, as well as the Trump-fluffing media that worships him. For instance, Newsmax host and fawning Trump sycophant, Greg Kelly, attacked Hutchinson Monday night saying that…

“Cassidy Hutchinson … They are still obsessed with her. I think quite frankly, one of the reasons why they’re talking about her testimony so much is based on her appearance. I do. She’s an above average person when it comes to looks. but very below average in other ways, I am told.”

It’s hysterical that Kelly says that some ambiguous “they” are obsessed with Hutchinson, when clearly he’s the one whose fixation is so unrelenting. And like a lovesick – albeit misogynistic – adolescent who can’t admit his infatuation, he demeans her by reducing her impact to merely her appearance. Even in that regard, he can’t simply say that she’s pretty, only “above average.” Then he concludes by insulting her intelligence, which he attributes to some other unnamed source.

Which brings us to Trump, who the following morning posted a slanderous comment about Hutchinson on his pitifully failing Twitter clone website, TRUTH Social. It was the sixth time he’s attacked her since she testified, despite repeatedly insisting that he “barely knew or even recognize” her. He ranted…

“Can you imagine the Unselect Committee, which was formed solely for the purpose of bringing down my ‘numbers, or worse, relying on the fake and made up stories, already largely debunked, of a female scam artist, Cassidy Hutchinson, who desperately wanted to go with the Trump Team to Florida long after January 6th, and went ‘crazy’ when she was told no. They called her a ‘leaker’ and worse, didn’t want her.”

Let’s just set aside Trump’s pathetic whining about the Committee’s purpose, and his ludicrous assertion that anything revealed to date has been debunked. Trump eventually got to his main point, petulantly disparaging Hutchinson as “a female scam artist.” Never mind that he couldn’t cite a single example of anything she said that was untrue. And like every other critic that has come out of his own administration, he portrays her as a low-level, incompetent, bent on betraying him for some reason.

You have to wonder why Trump hired so many people who were disloyal losers. But the answer may just be that he is projecting the two most prominent components of his narcissistic, so-called personality. In the the opening statements of Tuesday’s Committee hearing, vice-chair Liz Cheney said that…

“President Trump is a 76-year- old man. He is not an impressionable child. Just like everyone else in our country, he is responsible for his own actions and his own choices.”

That’s an exceedingly generous characterization of Trump. While he is certainly “responsible for his own actions and his own choices,” and he must be held accountable for them, it’s also painfully obvious that he is, in fact, “an impressionable child,” at least in his emotional maturity, or lack thereof. And we can expect more of these infantile outbursts going forward in his appearances with the suck-ups on Newsmax, and in his own comments on TRUTH Social, if it isn’t shut down first.

LOLOL: Trump Waives Privilege He Doesn’t Have So Bannon Can Lie to the January 6th Committee

Poor Donald Trump. He is still wallowing in the delusion that he has presidential prerogatives that were thrown out at the same time that he was thrown out of the White House by the American People. There is nothing more pitiful than a wannabe dictator acting out his imaginary authority and issuing decrees that he has no power to enforce.

Donald Trump

On Saturday Trump wrote a letter (posted below) to his former campaign boss and White House aide, Steve Bannon, waiving executive privilege so that he can testify before the House Select Committee investigating the January 6th insurrection that Trump incited. Never mind that Trump has no power to either grant or waive executive privilege, a determination that was affirmed by the Supreme Court that has a conservative majority, including three Trump appointees.

RELATED: Jon Stewart Nails It: The Supreme Court is Now the Fox News of Justice

However, Trump’s letter was a hot mess for so many other reasons. His language was reflective of the rage-fueled rants that he has been disgorging for years. And he offered no legal argument to support his position. What follows are a few choice excerpts of the clownish idiocy that Trump was not embarrassed to commit to paper:

“I write about the Subpoena that you received in September 2021 from the illegally constituted Unselect Committee, the same group of people who created the Russia Russia Russia scam, Impeachment hoax #1, Impeachment hoax #2, the Mueller Witch-Hunt (which ended in no “Collusion”), and other fake and never-ending yarns and tales.”

First of all, Trump is invalidating his whole waiver by writing that the it applies to a subpoena from “the illegally constituted Unselect Committee.” There is no such thing a an “Unselect Committee.” So there is nothing to waive. Also, the actual Committee was lawfully formed by Congress. And Trump’s regurgitation of his childish chants about “Russia Russia Russia,” his two impeachments, and the Mueller probe (which did find cooperation with Russia’s election interference, as well as obstruction of justice on Trump’s part) is just a reprise of the lamest hits he plays for fans at his cult rallies.

The letter continues…

“When you first received the Subpoena to testify and provide documents, I invoked Executive Privilege. However, I watched how unfairly you and others have been treated, having to spend vast amounts of money on legal fees, and all of the trauma you must be going through for the love of your Country, and out of respect for the Office of the President.”

In addition to deploying his fictional invocation powers, Trump empathizes with Bannon’s tribulations and praises his patriotism. Recall that Bannon was a key figure in the insurrection who said the day before that “All hell is going to break loose tomorrow.” He was also indicted for conspiracy to commit mail fraud and money laundering in connection to his fake “We Build the Wall” campaign. He received a pardon from Trump for that plot to ripoff Trump supporters.

The letter continues…

“Therefore, if you reach an agreement on a time and place for your testimony. I will waive Executive Privilege for you, which allows for you to go in and testify truthfully and fairly, as per the request of the Unselect Committee of political Thugs and Hacks, who have allowed no Due Process, no Cross-Examination, and no real Republican members or witnesses to be present or interviewed. It is a partisan Kangaroo Court.”

Here Trump is opening a Grand Canyon sized gap for Bannon to slither through and avoid testifying. He is not entitled to determine the “time and place” for testimony. If he refuses on the basis of not arriving at an agreement, he is still in contempt of Congress. What’s more, Bannon’s response to the “waiver” included his willingness to testify in public. But the Committee routinely holds all of the initial depositions in private, and Bannon would not be treated any differently. This may be Bannon’s attempt exploit his testimony in order to create a media circus, which the Committee will never agree to.

Furthermore, Trump’s complaint that there has been “no Due Process, no Cross-Examination, and no real Republican members or witnesses,” is illustrative of both his ignorance and dishonesty. Due process and cross examination are elements of a court trial, which a congressional committee is not. And literally every witness that has testified publicly to date was a Republican hired by Trump.

The letter continues…

“Why should these evil, sinister, and unpatriotic people be allowed to hurt and destroy the lives of so many, and cause such great harm to our Country?

“It has been, from the time I came down the escalator at Trump Tower, a political hit job against the overwhelming majority of Americans who support the concept and policy of Making America Great Again and putting America First. Good luck in all of your future endeavors.”

If anyone is being hurt by these hearings, it is those who chose to violate the law on behalf of a seditious and criminal, former reality TV game show host. And as for the “overwhelming majority of Americans,” every poll shows that they favor Trump being held legally responsible for his treasonous activities. That’s just another fact that Trump has surrendered to his delusions and/or lies.

UPDATE: Adding another twist to the plot, Trump’s attorney, Justin Clark, told the Justice Department that “at no point did Trump ever invoke executive privilege over Bannon’s testimony.” More proof that the whole charade is a fraud.

Trump is Terrified that WH Counsel Cipollone Will Tell the Truth to the January 6th Committee

Donald Trump is a severely disturbed individual in desperate need of intense psychotherapy. But being too debilitated by his malignant narcissism to seek the help he so obviously needs, he has been using his failing social media website, TRUTH Social, as his personal, online, cathartic release valve. He employs it almost exclusively to vent about whatever happens to be outraging, depressing, or frightening him at the moment.

Donald Trump Sweating

In a recent post, Trump ranted incoherently about the wholly imaginary fears that are consuming his warped state of mind. The triggering event this time is the pending testimony of Pat Cipollone, his former White House counsel, before the House Select Committee investigating the January 6th insurrection that Trump incited.

Previous testimony by Cassidy Hutchinson, the former aide to Trump’s chief of staff, Mark Meadows, revealed that Cipollone warned Trump that his participation in plots to overturn the election, including his encouragement of the insurrection, were unlawful. “Please make sure we don’t go up to the Capitol, Cassidy,” Cipollone implored Hutchinson. “We’re going to get charged every crime imaginable if we make that movement happen.”

Seeking additional details about Trump’s activities during, and leading up to, the Capitol riots, the Committee has recalled Cipollone. And that has elicited the following furor by the former reality TV game show host…

“Why would a future President of the United States want to have candid and important conversations with his White House Counsel if he thought there was even a small chance that this person, essentially acting as a ‘lawyer’ for the Country, may some day be brought before a partisan and openly hostile Committee in Congress, or even a fair and reasonable Committee, to reveal the inner secrets of foreign policy or other important matters. So bad for the USA!”

This tirade is another demonstration of how ignorant Trump is of governmental processes and law. He thinks that every conversation with the White House counsel is privileged. That’s false. Conversations that do not involve the official duties of the president are not shielded by either executive or attorney/client privilege. More to the point in this case, is that conversations that involve the commission of a crime are likewise not protected.

RELATED: Trump is Freaking Out that the January 6th Hearings are So Effectively Illuminating His Crimes

What Trump is really asking is “Why would a future President of the United States want to” discuss with his White House counsel his seditious plot to undermine democracy and overthrow the government? Which is actually an excellent question. Too bad for Trump that he didn’t think of it before incriminating himself.

Furthermore, there is nothing in the conversations that the Committee is seeking testimony for that involve “inner secrets of foreign policy or other important [official] matters.” That’s a red herring that Trump threw into the stew to make his cult disciples believe that he has a rational argument. He doesn’t.

Trump is also showing that he is ignorant of recent history. His hysterical reaction to the testimony of his White House counsel suggests that he thinks it is an unprecedented affair. However, anyone with a bit of institutional memory knows that Richard Nixon’s counsel, John Dean, testified before Congress, and was instrumental in Nixon’s downfall. Or perhaps someone did inform Trump of this fact, and that’s what he’s afraid of.

In any case, Trump’s fear is well founded. With the accumulating evidence of criminal behavior on his part, and that of his associates, he must know that there will likely be legal consequences to follow. So he’s lashing out with these pitifully ignorant outbursts in the safety of his own social media website. He obviously isn’t trying to convince the public at large that he’s an innocent victim of “deep state” persecutors.

In fact, Trump is just adding to his legal peril by unleashing more incendiary comments that have the potential to incite more violence. And the members of the House Committee, as well as prosecutors in the Justice Department and state offices, are surely paying attention.
