See How The GOP Is Openly Trying To Thwart The Jan. 6 Probe

As the January 6th select committee intensifies its probe into the MAGA riot, GOP leader Kevin McCarthy is threatening data companies if they comply with the law and send over phone and internet records. GOP lawmakers accidentally sent a letter to the wrong CEO in an attempt to stop data from being turned over, urging the CEO to decline the panel’s request to preserve phone records. At the same time, DC is bracing for another far-right rally at the Capitol later this month.

  1. I seem to remember TWO IMPEACHMENTS that got swept under the carpet. No documents. No witnesses. TREASON is still a CRIME.

    1. @Mitch Davis in today’s landscaped it is painted as a partisan movement… and in the case of republicans it was…. impeachment is meaningless in 2021.

    2. @Cid Sapient I watched them both… they had absolute proof… hint.. that’s why republicans refused to have an actual trial with witnesses and testimony. ya dimwit.

    3. @Todd Mc “and supposedly you can’t obstruct justice”
      making accusations of obstruction based on testimony without evidence means nothing in a trial

    4. @Daniel again u cannot go to trial without evidence
      testimony is not evidence, it supports/corroborates evidence
      they had no evidence…
      calling in witnesses would have been a complete waste of time without evidence
      they literally went to trial to demand congress find something incriminating against trump that they could not find
      but they couldnt tell u what it was

  2. Unbelievable how things develop. Coverup after coverup. There is no ethic, no integrity, no right or wrong, no law, no honesty, no morality, and no sincerity. It’s shameful.

    1. @Julian Rivera Oh, your are far from my superior. “Fetus” If you can not understand my response that’s your problem not mine.

    2. @DO NOT RESPOND Superior?my problem for not understanding ignorance you are right but ask me if I care ignorant.

    3. @Gratitude Always Trump has about as much of a chance of going to prison as lying traitor cheating Joe and his corrupt, drug addict son do!

    1. @Carol Miller haha. So funny. We’re hilarious. Like sometimes I think what would the world do with out us? I mean my wife tried to touch me, without gloves on! She almost killed me? Luckily our beloved president Biden will keep us safe. The world needs us. So Trump can go poopy.

    2. @Carol Miller
      You probably think you’re the top banana but you don’t know how much you’re shallow and constipated from the meds you’re on..
      BTW, I know who you’re

    1. @james robinson It is the DOJ’s job to uphold the law. McCarthy and friends are intimidating people to try to stop them complying with a legally issued subpoena. That is an offence.

    2. This is so much worse than that. These 12 jokers are attempting to coerce through open threat telecom companies to stand in open rebellion against the government of the United States and it’s duly elected agents thereof (in this case the Select Committee). Whether these companies obey or not is immaterial. Via the 14th Amendment all 12 of these jokers should be removed from Congress immediately and shall never hold another public elected or appointed position within the borders of these United States unless remedied by a 2/3 vote of both Houses of Congress. Get them out. Yesterday.

  3. Kevin McCarthy and the GOP have a lot to answer for , in participating in the insurrection by their own omission and by trying to hide the truth , they must be held accountable and prosecuted .
    Never forget January 6th 2021.

    1. Isn’t Evidence Tampering, Witness Intimidation, Witness Tampering and Racketeering a CRIME anymore? Are you ALL reporting McCarthy to the FBI or DOJ? Why have they not been arrested?

    1. @Stephanie Fain okay. All I’m saying is legitimising Taliban is going to increase terrorists activities globally

    2. @My Space that is certainly the most likely. As an optimist, I’d like to believe that 20 years has taught them moderation. As a realist, Afghanistan is blood soaked sand, and may stay that way.

    3. @Stephanie Fain Taliban just announced their new cabinet, starting with UN designated terrorist as prime minister.

    1. @Biddy Did A Boom-Boom! why would i ever get into a policy discussion with some loser on the internet who goes out of their way to spend their time trolling comment sections on youtube with a fake account?

  4. The guilty have brought themselves out into the open, waving flags “Hey, I one of the guys you want to investigate” Republicans. Not a real bright bunch. Thugs.

  5. If the former guy had nothing to do with the insurrection, why did McCarthy first stand in the Senate and condemn the former POTUS?

    1. Such an important question. Either because Trump was guilty or McCarthy stuck his finger the wind and that it was politically correct at the time to make the speech.
      Both actually.

    2. The Trump GOP base has a short memory, delusional faith and a undiscerning gullibility about the tripe they’re fed and dutifully swallow. That’s why Draft dodger Donald, Pious Pence, “Have you no shame ?”McCarthy, Moscow Mitch, Trust fund Tucker, “Dr.” Laura and Faux “news” don’t care if all the lies, obfuscation, misinformation, veiled threats, outright threats, denials, Russian propaganda, buzzwords and political beliefs they parrot are unAmerican, anti labor, hypocritical, anti democratic, easily debunked, unconstitutional or outrageously unbelievable. Flipper McCarthy’s lie doesn’t have to even be good. Something like “That guy addressing Congress was wearing a mask. You can’t tell if that’s me or not.” Or the “Are you going to believe me or your lying eyes and ears.”

    1. HE never had one. He is a Spineless Imp.. Do you want him taking care of your Kids? Are you sure he doesn’t eat babies?

    2. Its obvious that McCarthy was involved with Trump in planning, funding and inciting the insurrection. McCarthy meeting with Trump was most likely Trumps threat of revealing the truth.

  6. McCarthy’s backflip on trump most certainly was for his own political gain. The fact that this is his motivation and of those other republicans is absolutely pathetic and shows no integrity and love of democracy.

    1. @maria schultz That’s what you wish for, but the world saw you & your ilks tried an attempted COUP, because of s BIG LIE, that you still believe,by the way when is your DEAR LEADER being reinstated again? And when is the inauguration ceremony?

  7. Nevermind what the republicans would do to them IF they regain majority, these companies should be worried about what democrats will do to them NOW if they refuse subpoenas.

    1. Here’s the thing they can’t be “shut down” like the GOP claims they can do. They are breaking no laws whatsoever. Big Tech isn’t what the right plays it out to be.

    2. When things were at their very worst:
      2 Suns, Cross in the sky, 2 comets will collide = don`t be afraid – repent, accept Lord`s Hand of Mercy.
      Scientists will say it was a global illusion.
      Beware – Jesus will never walk in flesh again.
      After WW3 – rise of the “ man of peace“ from the East = Antichrist – the most powerful, popular, charismatic and influential leader of all time. Many miracles will be attributed to him. He will imitate Jesus in every conceivable way.
      Don`t trust „pope“ Francis = the False Prophet
      – will seem to rise from the dead
      – will unite all Christian Churches and all Religions as one.
      One World Religion = the seat of the Antichrist.
      Benedict XVI is the last true pope – will be accused of a crime of which he is totally innocent.

      “Many events, including ecological upheavals, wars, the schism in My Church on Earth, the dictatorships in each of your nations – bound as one, at its very core – will all take place at the same time.”

      “Arab uprising will spark global unrest – Italy will trigger fall out”

      The Book of Truth

    1. @Noreb , He ended a War like a Democrat ending a babies life: Abrupt, unsympathetic, reckless, no remorse, no concern for human life, and UNCONSTITUTIONALLY.

    2. @maria schultz oh please keep reminding people republicans want to ban abortions as well xD you idiots are the reason the democrats will destroy 22 and 24

    3. @maria schultz oh nice! so glad your vaxed and wear masks to preserve human life! good job….oops im talking to a hypocrite

    4. @maria schultz democrats dont end babies life thats is the freedom of the individual getting an abortion. their body their right? isnt that how the saying goes?

    5. @maria schultz In what planet are you living in? You are truly suffering from the worst kind of derangement of the spirit: believing things because we want them to be so, not because we have seen them for what they are.
