Liz Cheney Begins Floating Idea of Criminal Charges for Donald Trump

But she had better be careful what she wishes for.

Published

At the onset of this January 6th select committee, the Democrats in charge were adamant that they would not be simply going after Donald Trump in their work.  They needed to make this very clear because, as we saw with the makeup of the committee, there appeared to be no real GOP representation to found.   Sure, Adam Kinzinger and Liz Cheney made the list, but their support for Donald Trump had never really manifested, and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi had outright rejected a number of Republicans who wished to be a part of the committee on the grounds that they were “too Trump-y”.

Now, after months of work, it has become clear that this was all a charade.  The committee is targeting the former President’s inner circle quite brazenly, even going so far as to recommend charges of contempt against those who’ve asked for more time to see the issue of executive privilege adjudicated before committing their testimony to the record.

This week it appears that the tip of the spear is being sharpened once again, as the aforementioned Cheney begins to suggest that Trump himself could soon be facing criminal charges.

In recent days, Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming has drawn attention with public remarks that directly addressed Trump’s potential criminal culpability in connection with the Capitol siege.

Cheney, the Republican vice chair of the House committee investigating January 6, called attention to a federal statute making it illegal to obstruct an official proceeding. The daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney spoke up about Trump’s legal liability as the panel took steps to hold his former White House chief of staff, Mark Meadows, in contempt of Congress for ceasing cooperation with lawmakers’ probe.

“Mr. Meadows’ testimony will bear on a key question in front of this Committee: Did Donald Trump, through action or inaction, corruptly seek to obstruct or impede Congress’s official proceeding to count electoral votes?” Cheney said. “Mr. Meadows’ testimony will inform our legislative judgments on those issues.”

So, why this specific wording?

In those remarks, legal experts saw a clear reference to a charge the the Justice Department has already brought against hundreds of January 6 defendants: “corruptly obstructing an official proceeding.” It is the statute that could be relevant for any prosecution of Trump if evidence emerges that he planned or was aware of the violence that unfolded on January 6.

“It all depends on the facts. If the people who stormed the Capitol can be prosecuted for obstructing a congressional proceeding, if he played a role in that, then he’s equally liable — whether it’s instigating it, aiding and abetting it, planning it,” said Randall Eliason, a former federal prosecutor and now a professor at the George Washington University Law School.

“But they have to show he had some kind of role as opposed to: He sees it happen, sits back and enjoys it, but doesn’t do anything. They have to show that he played some role in causing it, not that the riot went out of control and he just gleefully watched it happen,” Eliason added.

Of course, the possibility of charging the former President with a crime would almost certainly work against Cheney and the committee’s best interests, as it would galvanize and mobilize a large swath of the MAGA Movement, which would, in turn, insure that the 2022 midterms produced a Republican majority in Congress.  This would be the last nail in the coffin for the already well-criticized committee.

Coca-Cola Blasted By Billboards Over Support of ‘Genocide’ Olympics

This is BRUTAL!

Published

on

In just a few weeks’ time, much of the world will have their eyes on Beijing.  No, not on account of the misinformation that they spread about the severity of the COVID-19 pandemic, nor their forceful takeover of Tibet.  We won’t be keeping a keen eye on the CCP over the Hong Kong hostage situation, or their repeated advances on the sovereign nation of Taiwan.

Nope.  We’ll all be watching young men and women cruising around on ice skates and skis, as opposed to having a serious conversation about the literal genocide that China has been involved in over the course of the last several years.

Now, international mega-corporation Coca-Cola is taking some serious heat over their continued support of what’s become known as “The Genocide Olympics”.

A conservative media watchdog group launched a billboard campaign Thursday outside Coca-Cola’s Atlanta headquarters, calling on the soft drink giant to explain its sponsorship of the upcoming Beijing Olympics in light of China‘s human rights abuses.

Accuracy in Media accused the company of hypocrisy with a billboard displaying the phrase: “Why does Coke support genocide?”

And it’s not as though Coke remains apolitical…not in the least.

The group notes that Coke condemned its home state of Georgia for implementing a new Republican-authored voting law and supported Major League Baseball’s decision to strip Atlanta of the All-Star Game because of the law — yet the multinational remains a major sponsor of the Beijing Games, “despite the fact that China is the greatest source of evil in our world.”

The billboards were soon making the rounds on social media.

As of this writing, there has been no official response from Coca-Cola.
