Hi glenn! AdLib 2 hours ago

Hi Ad–Hey am I first tonight? glenn 2 hours ago

How are you doing this evening? AdLib 2 hours ago

Yes! You’re Number One! AdLib 2 hours ago

Doing well, how about you? glenn 2 hours ago

Yay–number one! LOL! glenn 2 hours ago

I’m doing well too. AdLib 2 hours ago

Did you watch the 1/6 hearing yesterday? AdLib 2 hours ago

So when does DOJ get off its ass and lock up the TLB? glenn 2 hours ago

. glenn 2 hours ago

I think it’s clear now that the DoJ won’t indict anyone until the hearings are over, probably with a buffer period after them, so it doesn’t look like a political prosecution. But I am more confident now that they will indict Trump and his cronies. AdLib 2 hours ago

I don’t watch the hearings live, I watch clips. glenn 2 hours ago

Since the DoJ stated in their request for the Committee’s depositions and interviews that they need them for current investigations AND prosecution cases, I think they’re definitely in process. AdLib 2 hours ago

Why don’t you watch them live? AdLib 2 hours ago

I hope you are right and that the TLB and his cronies, especially Eastman, get convicted. glenn 2 hours ago

What did you think of the Repub judge Luttig stating that Trump and his followers are a clear and present threat to our democracy? Pretty powerful. AdLib 2 hours ago

If Trump isn’t charged, Garland is rolling out the red carpet for an overthrow by him and Repubs in 2024. I think he knows that now. AdLib 2 hours ago

Eastman is nailed dead to rights. No doubt in my mind that Eastman will be indicted and convicted. His texts and emails are all a prosecutor needs to get him convicted. AdLib 2 hours ago

My question is, will they indict many at once or do it periodically. AdLib 2 hours ago

And GA may be indicting Trump soon too. AdLib 2 hours ago

I get too upset and at the same time, bored, when I watch them live, so I wait for the clips so I only have to watch the best parts. Doesn’t make sense,I know, but it’s the only way I can handle them. My atte tionspan nowadays is sptty. glenn 2 hours ago

I thought Luttig’s statement was amazing. glenn 2 hours ago

That’s understandable. I do think they are doing a solid job in nailing down the narrative of how the many pieces in the conspiracy fit together. Trump is so guilty, he must be prosecuted. AdLib 2 hours ago

My biggest takeaway this week is that there is a ton of evidence that Eastman and Trump KNEW what they were doing was a crime but they just didn’t care. The difficult aspect of prosecuting these cases is showing intent, that they knew what they were doing was criminal and I think that’s evident now. AdLib 2 hours ago

Hey TW! AdLib 2 hours ago

Hope you’re right about Eastman. I think they’ll do it periodically, and I TLB is first. Start at the top and work your way down. glenn 2 hours ago

Good evening everone twilson117 2 hours ago

Well another fun week with the 1/6 hearings. twilson117 2 hours ago

Hey Twilson. How are you doing tonight? glenn 2 hours ago

Glenn doing fine how are you doing? twilson117 2 hours ago

Doing well, too, thanks, TW glenn 2 hours ago

glenn – I hope so but seeing how they’ve focused on the insurgents at the Capitol, I think they may start lower down the rung then work up to Trump. Eastman, Giuliani, Meadows then Trump? AdLib 2 hours ago

It seems like these hearings have some people shaking in their boots. twilson117 2 hours ago

TW – Yes, we were just talking about the hearings. What did you think were the most impactful moments from Thursday? AdLib 2 hours ago

Do either of you have a sense of what people are taking away from these hearings glenn 2 hours ago

Eastman being told he needs to find a damn good defense lawyer. twilson117 2 hours ago

TW – Look how quiet the Repubs have been since the hearings started. They’re worried and their weak protests that no one cares or that the hearings are just a political act aren’t landing well. AdLib 2 hours ago

Also I didn’t know the insurrectionist were 40 ft away from Pence twilson117 2 hours ago

Ad–I really don’t care in which order they do as long as they get to the TLB before he decides to run again. IOW, soon. glenn 2 hours ago

Ad I heard Fox relented and start showing them any truth to that? twilson117 2 hours ago

glenn – I think generally, the hearings are helping to confirm in the majority’s minds 1/6 was not impulsive but planned and that Trump was connected to inciting it. AdLib 2 hours ago

TW–I hope people are doing more than shaking in their boots. glenn 2 hours ago

Well Glenn I’m sure they need multiple changes of under wear but who knows. twilson117 2 hours ago

glenn – The DoJ needs to prosecute Trump regardless of if he announces he’s running. I don’t know that he will run though, his polling is down and many of his endorsed candidates are losing their primaries. AdLib 2 hours ago

Ad–repubs need to shut up. I’m sick of them! glenn 2 hours ago

TW – I heard the same about Fox, haven’t seen for myself but I’ll check for the next hearing. AdLib 2 hours ago

glenn – I can’t think of any better way to shut them up and shut them down than having their leader prosecuted and convicted. Yes, the nutjobs will likely stage violent responses but they can then be arrested and imprisoned, cleansed from our society, AdLib 2 hours ago

Meanwhile, I think corporations who want to see Repubs take power and give them tax cuts, will keep exacerbating inflation to fill their pockets and hurt Dems and Biden. AdLib 2 hours ago

Ad I know from my view Trump** needs to be prosecuted he fomented and participated in a coup, but this hand wringing over Trump** being a former president needs to be kicked to the side and charge him already. twilson117 2 hours ago

Ad–I know it’s helping the majority understand the TLB’s part in incitement, but what about republicans? The thing hat makes med see red is people like Barr,who know first hand what a treasonous deluded character the TLB is, yet would still vote for him. How many more deluded Americans are out there besides him? glenn 2 hours ago

TW – I mentioned to glenn, I don’t think the DoJ wants to indict Trump until after the 1/6 Committee is done then maybe a little after that, so they don’t look like they’re being political. I think we may not see Trump indicted until next year. Which sucks. AdLib 2 hours ago

TW–I couldn’t agree more. Charge him already. Give him his “equal time” to testify before Congress,under oath! glenn 2 hours ago
